Embarrassed By Cast How Can I Go To Prom With It
Prom Ball on Nov 28 from 6pm to midnight. I am an normal girl (10pm-6am and impossible to get up later). Should I go to bed after it or the next night?
Night owl: The Prom is a life time memory and you want to enjoy it as much as you can. I think your parents need to answer this question more than I do. It is important to remember to stay in a group of good friends who have the same values you do. Also remember to not get involved in things that will leave a bad memories. Have fun! ...Read more
I want to go to prom on the 16th but I just got on my period today is there away that I can get off my period earlier so I can enjoy prom?
The 16th is 4 days: away. Your menstrual flow should be tapering off by then. While the hormones in birth control, the morning after pill and progesterone only pills can delay a period, once it's started, none of them are likely to be effective and aren't medically approved for this situation. A superabsorbent tampon and panty shield are your best bet if you're still on your period. Enjoy! ...Read more
I am sixteen ans i want to go tanning for prom i just don't know what to do whether spray tanning or in a bed tanning? I know tanning in a bed causes cancer but if i just go for like 2 weeks everyother day will it hurt
Yes, : Yes, it will. Studies have shown that people who have never gone to a tanning bed have less skin cancer than people who have ever gone. Even just a few times. Ask around and find out who does good spray tans in your area. No ill health effects from a spray tan at all. Once prom is over with, you might want to pick up a few different self tanners and test them on yourself to see if you can find one that you like and works well for you (i wouldn't do this right before prom though). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm going to a prom this upcoming saturday, and I need to get rid of my ashy/dry elbows and legs! how can i?
Hydrate!: Hydrate your self. Drink plenty of water. Also, you can make a "scrub" by mixing about a half cup of sugar with about 3/4 cups of olive oil. Put it in a jar and use it when you shower, gently rubbing the rough spots. After you get out of the shower, pat dry and while your skin is moist massage some cocoa butter on the dry areas. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Leaking BOW b4 labor: In obgyn we use a lot of abbreviations. Prom is premature rupture of membranes or leaking of fluid from the amniotic sac before onset of labor. Bow is bag of waters or sac containing amniotic fluid and baby. B4 is, well, before. So if there is suspected leakage of fluid or continuous feeling of dampness in vagina/vulva, a pregnant woman should be seen by ob. Risk of infection can rise every hour. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
