Cant Insert Endoscope
How to insert his penis in my vagina to get preg?The way I insert finger touching cervix, I can't insert penis in that small whole of my vagina. Help.
Just in: The penis just needs to be in the vagina, no special way. It has nothing to do with how you can or can't insert your finger. If his penis is in the vagina, the ejaculate will be deposited where is needs to be. If he cannot get his penis in your vagina, suggest you consult a sex therapist or see your OB to rule out medical problems that prevent penetration. ...Read more

Got cavities filled ystrdy. Dentist told to have Vizylac on empty stomach. Chemist told to have pan 40 empty stmch. Can't reach my doc rite nw.ideas??
Why?: Vizylac is a probiotic that stimulates your gut bacteria to make B complex vitamins and folic acid. My understanding is that it is used for patients with GI disorders. What this has to do with toothache I can't imagine, unless your Dentist is expecting you to have Antibiotic caused GI distress. Follow your Dentist's directions until told otherwise by your Dentist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Warm water : NG tubes are one of the most uncomfortable procedures that are done to awake patients. Warming up the tube in a warm water bath will make them softer and more pliable, but this in turn may make it more difficult to insert. Ask your doctor if you can try some nebulized lidocaine 10 minutes prior to insertion to see if that numbs up your nose and pharynx enough to make the procedure more tolerable. ...Read more

I am 37 & had copper T inserted 9 mnth ago. Last 2 months, my partner complained of bad odor during sexual intercourse Describes it as“ strong pungent-smell” However he confirmed smell is only during intercourse. I cant even smell it, not even when ?
Germ odors: The vaginal environment is moist & supports growth of a variety of germs that can produce foul odor. Intercourse will ventilate the area and expose low grade off gassing of the odor that may otherwise not be obvious. This may/not have anything to do with the IUD. A doc visit to evaluate for/treat a vaginitis would be reasonable. ...Read more

No worries: Hi Dale, They are very small. Depends on the size your doctor chooses but typically for upper GI purposes, they range between 5-10 mm. You will also get conscious sedation for this procedure so that you don't choke or gag. Many of my patients that have had upper endoscopies say that they didn't even remember the procedure being done. Hope you feel better soon! ...Read more
I'm worried about getting a colonoscopy because of an article i just read about a study where 20% of endoscopes contain bio dirt after proper cleaning?
Voice concern to Dr.: Tell the Dr about your concern and ask for reassurance - also consider psychotherapy to address this common aspect of OCD dirt phobia. It's well treated by CBT if you try. The risks of not dealing w/ your illness may be much greater than this possible exposure. You take greater risks all the time - choose well. Best wishes! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
