You : You may be dealing with an internal hemorrhoid. These are usually painless and can cause quite a lot of bleeding. On the other hand rectal polyps, tumors, and like you stated fissures can be the cause amongst other things. You really need to see a doctor for this problem. You will need a rectal exam, stool testing for blood, and a test to make sure you are not anemic due to all the bleeding. Your doctor may also want additional tests based on your history and exam. I know you probably don't want to see a doctor for a rectal exam, however it is in your best interest to get a diagnosis and prompt treatment. Good luck. ...Read more

What's a safe, effective and quick diet for a 18 year old female? Be more specific than eat healthy and exercise.I want lose 10-15 pounds.

Eat less & exercise: The key to losing weight is to eat less, but not all calories are created equal. Sugars & simple carbs from grains esp cause weight gain. I like dr.

Add aerobics: To your routines and be scrupulous about eating fresh, clean foods 5-6 times a day in small amounts. Calculate your daily caloric needs, track a few days worth of intake on myfitnesspal.Com, and adjust to stay just under your requirements. Love handles are the "last bit of fat to go, " especially in men. http://www.muscleandstrength.com/tools/bmr-and-daily-calorie-calculator.html. ...Read more

What multivitamins are best for an 18 year old just starting to work out and eat healthy? I'm 5'7" and 140 lbs.

Healthy, real food!: The current studies show that if you are eating a healthy balanced diet you don't need multivitamins. And they may do more harm than good. Concentrate on lean protein, lots of fruits and vegetables, and whole grains. The one thing you do not need, are "supplements" marketed to weightlifters. ...Read more
