Do guys really hate monogamy?

Do guys really hate monogamy?

No: I don't believe many men hate monogamy. But I do think that depending on how a man is socialized and to the extent that a man learns to develop healthy boundaries around sexuality, that is one determining factor the degree to which a man can exercise monogamous behavior. ...Read more

Is monogamy hereditary or an acquired trait?

Is monogamy hereditary or an acquired trait?

No definitive answer: Agree with Dr. Chen; impossible to tease apart how much is due to upbringing, life experiences (e.g., learning), or other environmental factors vs. genetics. There is some belief in the scientific community that humans evolved to be monogamous. So, genes likely influence monogamy, but humans are extremely flexible in terms of how they behave in different contexts. Hope this is helpful. Take care. ...Read more

Do you think masturbation helps maintain monogamy?

Do you think masturbation helps maintain monogamy?

Debatable: There are many things one does to maintain monogamy. Whether one masturbating would steer one to maintain a single relationship would be debatable. If ones sex urge and desire is vanquished simply by a session of masturbation to prevent an affair or other relations with another outside of a single relationship would be possible but not probable in my opinion. ...Read more

I want to end this! Am I HIV negative? FDA approved PCR RNA (-) at 4 month, FDA combo Ab/Ag (-) at 1,3,4,5,6 month. Can I resume my monogamy sex life?

Yes: The test results you provided are virtually diagnostic of being HIV free. For the sake of complete assurance you may wish to repeat the HIV nucleic acid test. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

I hate to say this, but my anxiety is so hard to treat that I have to be prescribed really strong stuff?

I hate to say this, but my anxiety is so hard to treat that I have to be prescribed really strong stuff?

Potent medicine: Not sure what you mean strong stuff. A variety of different medications and doses can be needed at least in the short run, but a large number of people can reduce or stop such medication for anxiety with the strong stuff of cognitive behavioral therapy. Not everyone, but most. Dose levels can be misleading; and there are different classes of meds used, each with different risks and benefits. ...Read more

My 5 month old just got over a cold but is still coughing really bad. I hate to see her suffer is there anything that i can do or give her?

Not much.: The cough is not harmful and probably bothers you more than it does your baby. Cough medicines at this age can have dangerous side effects. Saline nose drops are safe and maybe helpful. ...Read more

Is wearing SPF 30+ enough protection? Do I really need a hat everyday or is that only recommended? Will fluorescent lights also cause flare-ups?

Is wearing SPF 30+ enough protection? Do I really need a hat everyday or is that only recommended? Will fluorescent lights also cause flare-ups?

What condition?: If you mean Polymorphic Light Eruption, then you will need to avoid exposure to lights which trigger your problem . SPF 30 is sufficient for partial sun protection but should be applied about 45 mins prior to exposure and every 2 hrs thereafter when exposed to the sun. Wearing a hat with wide brim is always a good idea. I still don't know whether you have lupus or something else. ...Read more

Depression: Hi. Not all depression responds adequately to psychology. I see you are treated with antidepressants, which are often very beneficial. However, Lexapro and Cymbalta (duloxetine) work by similar and mostly overlapping mechanisms, so there may be a better drug regimen for you. If you are feeling like hurting yourself, or worse, please seek immediate medical attention. ...Read more

Feel really down and I hate it. Lately I have been feeling so bad! I just hate everything! I see a physcologist aswell so I do have some techniques...

Good start: I am happy to hear you have a psychologist and maybe he/she is teaching you techniques to make yourself feel better. However if you feel "bad" and "really down" it may be time to also see a psychiatrist and consider medication for depression. If you are thinking of hurting yourself call 911 or go to closest ER immediately! ...Read more

I am working out and really watching what i eat, why am i not losing weight i just started 3 weeks ago and i been really busting my but why can't i drop weight, i been big all my life and i hate it, what am i doing wrong?

Patience: It can take time but would still look really closely at your eating habits. When you work out a lot, you will likely feel hungry as your body is burning more calories. The increase in appetite can lead to consuming more calories. Really need to ensure that you are burning more calories than you are taking in and you will lose weight: cut back on carbohydrates..Focus lean protein, fresh veggies. ...Read more
