We have been maried 25 years the later 17 years no intimate contact. He is on testoterone patches and taking cialis. Nothing . I have found him on porn sites. He just has no interest in me. After 17 years is it too late to even try?

We have been maried 25 years the later 17 years no intimate contact.  He is on testoterone patches and taking cialis. Nothing . I have found him on porn sites.  He just has no interest in me.  After 17 years is it too late to even try?

I : I suggest talk with him and ask him directly (in a non-acusatory or judgemental manner). There are so many things that can impact a man's interest in sexual activity with his spouse. Some men become less sexually excited with their wife after she has born a child. If the relationship is strained or lacking in emotional intimacy, that could be a deterent. Some men feel more sexually aroused when something seems "naughty" to them. I would ask him why he has not had sexual contact in such a long time. Since he is using cialis, is treated with testoterone and he goes to pornographic sites/ these things are suggestive that he still has a sex drive (libido). Sometimes, expressing interest and giving him permission, may help to get over a bump. If you are missing sexual intimacy with him, i would let him know how important it is to you. If you have been unresponsive in the past to sex, this could keep him away. Invite him to share this form of intimacy with you. If there seems to be a block, may he would be willing to consider seeing a couples therapist. It does take two to tango and you would both need to have the desire to work past this issue. Good luck. ...Read more

Daughter saw hospital mental health person 1x released no problem found does this info get sent to state mental health office on record forever?

Recorded somewhere: We live in a world of recordkeeping.I know of no one looking to keep track of everyone that sees a mental health counselor.However, you can be assured that an insurance company and/or the facility records the encounter by date and time with a related diagnostic label. It is how they justify paying for services or making them available. ...Read more

Medical miracles-a seriously ill person,confirmd by docs that he has few days leftSuddenly becomes healthy.Have u come across such patients,is it true?

Medical miracles-a seriously ill person,confirmd by docs that he has few days leftSuddenly becomes healthy.Have u come across such patients,is it true?

Explanations: Miracles I've seen: 1. The condition cured was never there eg, the person was told incorrectly they have a problem (or might have the problem) 2. Recovery was unexpected but possible, and the patient pulled through 3. A rare natural process cured a "usually terminal" condition Eg, spontaneous regression of malignant melanoma (likely due to a host immune response) 4. Made-up stories ...Read more

Where would a male, age 25, go if he has no health insurance and no money to get diagnosed. Serious condition! lives in new hampshire. ?

Where would a male, age 25, go if he has no health insurance and no money to get diagnosed. Serious condition! lives in new hampshire. ?

Medical school: I can't make promises, but the place you are most likely to get treated by people who are prepared not to make trouble if they are not paid is a medical school. Think about phoning dartmouth. The fact that folks can't get health care in the usa is a national tragedy brought on by crazy politics, and you have my sympathy. Good luck. ...Read more

Blood : Blood donor blood is always screened throroughly to ensure absence of communicable diseases. False positive results are rare, and would be due to a mislabelled specimen or a flaw in the blood test. It is prudent to have a blood test to rule out this disease. If his blood test still shows syphilis, it is important that he be treated so that the condition does not get worse. He can bring this letter to his doctor and get referred for a lab test accordingly. ...Read more

Does being Co-codamol affect your sperm.my partner been on them near 2 years. We have been trying for a baby since Christmas with no success?

Does being Co-codamol affect  your sperm.my partner  been on them near 2 years. We have been trying for a baby since Christmas with no success?

Maybe (not) . . .: Co-codamol is a brand of codeine+paracetamol sold in the UK to control pain. Chronic narcotic use can affect pituitary function resulting in decrease signal to testes, so less testosterone & possibly less sperm. But codeine is not considered a particularly powerful narcotic, although it may have some effect on pituitary. Best to have semen analysis. BTW, it can take up to 1yr to get pregnant. ...Read more

Is there any case documented of HIV from receiving blowjob? Coz i received from unknown male.I don't know he'd cut or sore in his mouth or not.

Not very likely: Well that's a great question..And there are a few variables like is he on meds....Is he undetectable..Was there another infection like gonorrhea present etc. I'll give you a general response that i think your going to be fine. I have a large predominantly gay HIV practice here in ft. Lauderdale and can't say i've seen this except in 1 case where the kid had wisdom teeth removed then did oral. ...Read more
