So, please stop the practice. ...Read more

I would love to have anal sex with my boyfriend but I want to make sure it's clean sex can I douching or enema and cleaning anus and a bit of rectum?

Water enema is safe.: Feel free to use a water enema to clean yourself before being intimate. Some people evacuate completely after each bowel movement and do not have any issue with "cleanliness" during anal sex. Other people may need the help of an enema beforehand. As you get to know your body better, you will be able to determine if enemas are optional for you. ...Read more

What other methods could be used to clean the anus before anal sex? Would using an ear syringe be safer than douching or still no?

What other methods could be used to clean the anus before anal sex? Would using an ear syringe be safer than douching or still no?

Enema: An over the counter enema with electrolytes (i.e Fleet's) would be safest way to clean yourself. A syringe would probably not give you enough volume to clear residual stool from the rectum. Of course, understand that enemas are not required for your health but are relatively safe to use to increase your and your partner's enjoyment of sex. Also, take good care of yourself and practice safe sex. ...Read more

I was recently on Metronidazole 3 wks ago for BV, got rechecked and still have it. I am a clean person-unscent soap, no douching. Any ideas to prevent?

Recurrent BV...: ...is common, difficult, often very frustrating for both patients and their doctors. It has nothing to do with hygiene or type of soap. Sex often triggers BV and consistent condoms might help. Preventive treatment with vaginal metronidazole (MetroGel®) or boric acid vaginal capsules often is effective. If your doc is unfamiliar with these, find a gyn with interest in infectious diseases. ...Read more

What is irrigation in a deep cleaning? After my regular dental checkup last week, my dentist said I need to come back for a deep cleaning and irrigation. What does that mean? .

What is irrigation in a deep cleaning? After my regular dental checkup last week, my dentist said I need to come back for a deep cleaning and irrigation. What does that mean? .

Carson: Carson city,
they may be referring to scaling and root planing which is treatment for periodontal disease (gum disease) and usually includes irrigation (an anti-microbial rinse).
But, my best advice is to talk with you dentist prior to your scheduled appointment. You should understand their recommendation, why they are making it, and what is the anticipated outcomes with or without treatment.

Don't worry: Although this is a very unfortunate incident, it is important that you don't panic. The swelling and the bruising will get better, with time. Make sure that you follow your dentists/doctor's instructions. You many want to ask for a referral to an endodontist just for follow up, although not much can be done at this point, than let time heal the area, and it will. ...Read more

Can ear irrigation be done at home to clean out wax? I had my ear cleaned out two weeks ago at doctor wax is back not allowed to use qtip wax removal

You Bet, Fairly Easy: Best: simply work shampoo into ear canals, with little finger tip, each time you shampoo your hair. Helps to pull pina back with opposite hand behind head while working in the soap. The wax will be softened by the shampoo ; work out. The usual medical tool for mechanical wax removal is 3 mm od buck ear curette, but not good if cannot see ; don't know anatomy. Q-tip too big, pushes wax further in. ...Read more
