Tough as Nails:
First of all congratulations.

Some of the things that you can do in the mean time are keeping your nails trim and eating healthy diet. Foods rich in protein and calcium along with a biotin supplement will really help.

I cut my baby's finger with the nail clippers. It bleed for a while & i think it has stopped. I put a bandaid on it. How to i know it's stopped bleed?
Bleeding finger: As with any abrasion or minor scrape, most of this bleeding stops when bandaged as you have done. That means that basically if there's not blood running from the wound it's probably okay, but if there is flesh hanging someplace on the wound you should have it checked definitely in an emergency room! ...Read more
I have a black toe nail from running(3 weeks ago) it stopped hurting(remained black) so i ran again but now its back and my race is in 2 weeks! help?!
21st day.Bf fingered me.Not rough no long nails.Hours later,felt slight pain like period came. Fresh blood. Wiped it off and then stopped. Normal?
Most likely: If anything were to go wrong at time your boyfriend fingered you, you would've known right then, aside from infection. Infection doesn't just come on hours later, so it's not likely that either. You didn't mention when your last period was, so perhaps that's the case. Of note, it's perfectly normal for young women to have irregular cycles/menses, so perhaps that's it. Go see your doc if concerned ...Read more
