Is a chiropractor of any help in getting one's body back in shape right after delivering a baby?

No: Your body after delivery has a bunch of spontaneous ways to restore its condition. You can help this process with a proper diet, reasonable and focused exercise, and being a good mother. Chiropractic offers a deep massage for your spine which will have no effect on these functions even if it feels good. Discuss recovery with your obstetrician. ...Read more

Slept with two guys in two days. I know sperm can stay in you 3-5 days.  Can two guys sperm be present inside at the same time? 

Slept with two guys in two days. I know sperm can stay in you 3-5 days.  Can two guys sperm be present inside at the same time? 

Sure, why not?: If you had sex with 10 men in a couple of days, sperm from all of them would be inside you for several more days. In the event you become pregnant this cycle, there will be no way to know which guy is the father (except genetic testing of the baby after birth). It's one of the dangers (or inconveniences, depending on how you look at it) of having more than one partner at a time. ...Read more

The six days of fertility widow can you get pregnant in any day of those six days?

The six days of fertility widow can you get pregnant in any day of those six days?

Not exactly: Pregnancy can start on one day (or 1-2 days) during each cycle, because the egg only lives for a day or two. No egg = no baby. Sperm can live several days, so having sex from 1 to 5 days before the egg is ready, up to and including the day of ovulation, can lead to pregnancy... but the pregnancy can only begin on the 1-2 days that the egg is live and ready. That's why fertile days are 6-7 days. ...Read more

I moved to a very hot country two months ago afer living in a cold one for 21 years. Is it normal for my period to change (come 6 days early)?

I moved to a very hot country two months ago afer living in a cold one for 21 years. Is it normal for my period to change (come 6 days early)?

That can happen: A big change in environment can alter one's hormonal balance and change the timing of a cycle or two, but of course, these changes are not predictable. Things that can influence hormones may include the number of daylight hours, amount of emotional stress, amount of physical work compared to sleep and rest, amounts and types of food eaten, etc... But cycle changes could also be just a coincidence. ...Read more
