Blood test: Eating ice in women is often associated with iron deficiency anemia. You may see your doctor for a blood test. You could take oral iron supplement available over the counter. If you intend to be pregnant, take pre-natal vitamins. If you do not want to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time.

There is a Chinese tradition that you cannot ''eat ice cream during your period." Is there any science behind this?

There is a Chinese tradition that you cannot ''eat ice cream during your period." Is there any science behind this?

Perhaps...: I am not aware of any scientific recommendation to avoid ice-cream during your period. But maybe you have just explained why the Chinese are usually thin! Women tend to crave chocolate, sweets and fatty foods during their periods and can put on weight during this time so knowing this and avoiding it could be helpful. Best wishes!

I had 3 6oz glasses of wine on ice over a 4 hour period and took an etg test 36 hours later with a 500 cut off. Would I pass?

I had 3 6oz glasses of wine on ice over a 4 hour period and took an etg test 36 hours later with a 500 cut off. Would I pass?

Most likely yes: The metabolism of alcohol is fairly straightforward and follows a pattern of zero order kinetics which means it disappears at a steady state over time.

How long does it usually take for a bruise to heal? What can I do to avoid aggravating it and speed healing beyond the initial put-ice-on-it period?

Not Too Complicated: If you were mugged by five large thugs in an alley in South Central, it could take weeks. If you bumped your forearm on the door knob to a dressing room in Macy's, maybe a week. So, if it's sore, decrease use to that area 'till it feels better. If it's swollen, elevate it if you can. Tylenol (acetaminophen). And time. Not too complicated unless it gets worse for some reason, then get it looked at.

I had my period but it was short an light, I did a pregnant test but was negative but I'm still getting pregnant symptoms an I crave ice to cool down. Help!

Patience: Alterations in hormones and periods can cause some of these symptoms. If this is the first time, then give it a few weeks and it should get back to normal. If this continues to happen then you need to see your gynecologist to help regulate your hormones. Patience is the best answer.

Can smoking ice start your menstrual period?

What a terrible Idea: No, don't expect illicit drugs to jump start your period. Even if they did, the risks would way out weigh the benefits.

My girlfriend and I had sex yesterday, and she just finished her period. I wore a condom and pulled out. Pregnancy chances? The condom was trojan fire and ice, it did not rip or tear (as far as I can tell) and she bled a bit. I did not ejaculate inside of

When: When a condom is worn correctly, the chances that a woman becomes pregnant are low. It is always best to have two methods of contraception like using the pill + condoms. She should see her doctor to talk about starting the pill or how to use Plan B if a condom breaks.

Does thigh gap good for girl? I love to eat ice. Does it affect my period and pregnancy if I was married?

Does thigh gap good for girl? I love to eat ice. Does it affect my period and pregnancy if I was married?

Unrealistic: "Thigh Gap" is a global cultural phenomenon which originated not long after a Victoria Secret Runway show. Keep in mind these girls are unusually tall and unusually thin body shape. This is not ideal for most women. Since it's origins, it has become the subject of many teen girl blogs and is highly associated with disordered eating. Ice question? You need some bloodwork r/o vitamin deficiency.

Craving vanilla ice cream with pickles period missed 11 days lower back pain took mutipule pregnancy tests came out negative can I be pregnant?

Pregnancy: You most certainly could be pregnant. Home testing has errors. Your choice of the ice cream with pickles is very unusual. Please get a better pregnancy test done through the doctor.
