Sometimes a man can get an erection at the wrong time and/or place. What can he do to calm it down asap?

The unusual thing: Is the that the feeling is numbness...the most common cause of disability of walking when arising from sitting is degenerative arthritis of the knees and hips causing pain, but typically one doesn't feel numbness.

Could I get an infection easily, or pneumonia from water going down the wrong tube in the shower? I coughed a lot and vomited a bit when it happened.

Very unlikely.: Ingested water, if not in large amount, like in drowning, comes out due to coughing which is body's natural way to remove foreign objects. After a lot of coughing, as you did, most of it must have come out. Whatever didn't usually gets absorbed in to body.

The fact that it is only happening on one side of your face is a bit more unusual. I would probably get it checked out, especially if you have other neurological symptoms on that side (numbness, skin sensitivity, etc...) ...Read more

Trying to get pregnant haven't had a period still have symptoms of a period but no blood comes down what to do been to three doctors can't find anything wrong no std's nothing I've taken pills to help but still nothing

The: The menstrual cycle bleeding is controlled by hormones and these can be tested for by blood tests. Your ovaries make estrogen to grow an egg and then after an egg is released Progesterone is produced and if you do not get pregnant then these two hormones fall and trigger a regular period bleed. If you are not making eggs you do not make regular period bleeding. You can take a progestin pill to make bleeding but that will only work if you are making estrogen. There is no way to fix this over the internet, you will need to see someone. Naturally you would have also checked a pregnancy test too. Best wishes. ...Read more
