I have a penis that is a bit curved can it still bring satisfaction to my wife?

I have a penis that is a bit curved can it still bring satisfaction to my wife?

Leave it alone...but: Lifelong curved or just occurring over the past few months? Either way, leave it alone as long as not hurting, stable in degree, continuing ok in sex. If lifelong, you're born with it; if recently, developing peyronie's disease, a benign annoying penile curvature at erection. So, see urologist to clear and detail what you got if still in doubt. Best wish ... Always. ...Read more

May have a compressed/fractured growth plate in my foot. I don't think it's severe but it throbs and I have a ton of pain.Would I get a boot or a cast?

May have a compressed/fractured growth plate in my foot. I don't think it's severe but it throbs and I have a ton of pain.Would I get a boot or a cast?

Fracture: Either. Fractures are best treated with some type of immobilization. The problem with a boot is it can be removed. They are nice as they can be removed for sleep, bathing, etc. if the pain is not controlled with the cast boot, then moving to a fiberglass cast or plaster cast would be the next option. See your orthopedic dr or podiatrist. ...Read more

I have a cousin who I suspect has some kind of growth disorder... She just turned ten and wears a size 12 shoe. Is this abnormal?!

I have a cousin who I suspect has some kind of growth disorder... She just turned ten and wears a size 12 shoe. Is this abnormal?!

Probably OK: Shoe size is not an accurate way of diagnosing growth disorders. It would be helpful to know what her height percentile is and if she is tall for age, if she is well into puberty that would cause an earlier than usual growth spurt but not tall stature as an adul ...Read more

Can a bad circumcision cause a micropenis? I believe it happened to my 9 yr old, he had a bad circumcision at birth, seems to be real small. Fixable?

Can a bad circumcision cause a micropenis? I believe it happened to my 9 yr old, he had a bad circumcision at birth, seems to be real small. Fixable?

Micropenis v trapped: Micropenis is very small both in length and width & not caused by circumcision. Trapped penis can result from excess shaft skin removed, glans will be of normal width & normal shaft can be felt from outside the skin. Boys with a trapped penis from suboptimal circumcision may have discomfort or pain with erection. Either way penises look small in overweight boys due to a thick prepubic fat pad. ...Read more

Any way to increase my chance of conceiving a girl? I have more than half a dozen boys and only one girl, and she wants a sister really badly.

Not easily: Doctors use to "spin" sperm to separate the x from the y and then artificially inseminate with the preferred batch of sperm but this has shown to not work. In vitro fertilization with preimplantation genetic diagnosis is technically feasible, but very expensive and ethically questionable. For more info www.Askyourgynecologist.Org. ...Read more

Hi I have 2 daughters and working on another baby but is there anyway i can. Ensure i will have a little boy? Or tips for conceiving a boy?

I have a daughter who is 17 months old.Today i notice a small outgrowth in her hand palm joint.Is this a bone spur?what can i do?

Doubt spur: this is hard to diagnose without an exam. but she is too young for a spur. if it is hot/red/tender then it could be an infection but if not it may be a small ganglion cyst. If it is tender and red see your doc. if not can observe for awhile. hope this helps! ...Read more
