How do you make sure you bleed at first intercourse? My general doctor says my hymen is intact and I am middle eastern so it is culturally significant

How do you make sure you bleed at first intercourse? My general doctor says my hymen is intact and I am middle eastern so it is culturally significant

All women are equal.: Some women don't bleed. Only in cases of alleged sexual assault do 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. Everywhere on Earth, we must prevent discriminatory treatment of girls and women. ...Read more

What is the best time for sun-exposure in patient with vitamin D deficiency? In iraq and Eastern populations?

What is the best time for sun-exposure in patient with vitamin D deficiency? In iraq and Eastern populations?

Mid-day: The sun has to be fairly high in the sky, at least 50 degrees above the horizon, for UVB rays that are needed to produce Vit D to reach the ground, so mid-day is the best time.
For a detailed discussion see http://tinyurl. Com/7kv5pgm
From about 10/10 to early March the sun is never that high so the only way to get adequate D is to supplement- I advise 5000 iu/day.

Is the eastern practice of oil pulling safe for MS patients? Looking for natural compliments to my copaxone (glatiramer) and vitamin D3 treatment.

Is the eastern practice of oil pulling safe for MS patients? Looking for natural compliments to my copaxone (glatiramer) and vitamin D3 treatment.

Would caution you: Amazing how many ms patients feel desperate and begin searching for solutions which are promoted online and in alternative journals, most of which are clearly deceptive and bogus. Forget "oil pulling" and gimmicks. If you are not doing well, make sure your vitamin d level is about 50-60ng/ml, avoid smoking, use low fat, low salt diet. Maybe switch to Gilenya or tysabri (natalizumab). ...Read more
