Why do i have an odour but my panty shield and underwear dont have the odour on it?

Why do i have an odour but my panty shield and underwear dont have the odour on it?

Vaginal odor?: panty shields are a choice, but aren't necessary. While there is a "smell" to a vagina, this is nothing to be ashamed of or try to cover up. It's normal.

I have factor 5 lie den mutation homozygous and I want to know if I am able to fly?

I have factor 5 lie den mutation homozygous and I want to know if I am able to fly?

Yes: with caveats. You must continue any medications you are taking to prevent blood clots. You are at increased risk of clots so you want to be in a seat that allows you to reposition your legs during flight, so economy is likely not for you. You must get up and walk every 10-15 minutes and flex your calves to get the blood flowing. It may be a good idea to tell the cabin crew your needs. ...Read more

Sports can't break d hymen? Den what can break it?

Sports can't break d hymen? Den what can break it?

It doesn't matter: No. Yes. It doesn't matter. So, ignore the hymen. Usually, only in cases of alleged sexual assault upon girls and women do we physicians engage in the careful examination of hymens, collecting evidence of physical damage to be used later in courts of law. In normal everyday life, people should not be "checking hymens" nor thinking about whether they are broken or not broken. ...Read more
