Tell an adult: So sorry you had to go through such a traumatic event. Please seek medical attention asap, so you can get tested for STDs (most counties have free STD Clinics) and referred for counseling (most counties have rape crisis centers with free counseling). Just because you were not physically assaulted, if you were forced to have sex - you were sexually assaulted. U can call 1.800.656.HOPE. Take Care ...Read more

Life is not 100%: A woman using oral birth control pills can be 100% sure that she is NOT 100% protected from getting pregnant unless she never has sex with a fertile guy. If she has sex, no birth control pill that is 100% effective. That being said, birth control pills are among the most effective if taken correctly. She can also have the guy use condoms to avoid certain STD's and perhaps avoid some vaginal odors. ...Read more

38 yr. Marriage. One child. Extremely infrequent intercourse. Very painful sex w/blood. Gynecologist states episiotomy to blame. Any options for me?
Assuming it is not: From atrophic vaginitis which means vaginal thinning due to lack of estrogen in the vaginal tissue - that can cause all of your symptoms, and can be treated with low dose vaginal estrogen like Estrace (estradiol) cream, if it is really from episiotomy which is possible but not likely, the episiotomy can be redone with a minor surgery, you should go for a 2nd opinion before u would have that type of surgery. ...Read more
Has 2 kids, 3x miscarriage.Had status epilepticus n addisonian crisis last year. On cortef (hydrocortisone). Trying to conceive but failed. Any related causes
Depends: It depends upon whether your low cortisol levels were from adrenal or pituitary causes. If it was pituitary, you may have other hormonal abnormalities that interfere with conception. If it was your adrenal glands, and you're receiving appropriate replacement, you should return to whatever fertility you had prior to your acute episode. Check w/your doctors and have your partner checked. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Workup/M.D. visit: CF is one possible cause of frequent respiratory infections and a sweat chloride test is used to help diagnose CF in addition, there are many forms of immunodeficiency which can cause frequent infections.

When you go, have a support person with you and find an empathic doctor. Your friends will know one. ...Read more
Rape: If raped in a developing country, the help provided would depend on the medical system available to you in that country. Or, if you're in the military or civil service, what medical care comes through those systems. These situations may differ markedly. Many who are raped (both males & females) do not tell about their experiences. This could result in higher risk of ptsd later. ...Read more

Both are crimes: Rape is forcible sexual intercourse, often under threat of physical injury. Often the victim is unable to consent or resist. Like being under influence of date rape drugs or physically overpowered, etc. Molestation involves a sexual act (which could be rape, but doesn't have to be) with someone beneath the age of legal consent. Both rape and molestation are crimes, and are traumatizing. ...Read more
Maybe , maybe not: If you are concerned you may actually have been raped while intoxicated or perhaps drugged, i would recommend that you go to the emergency room and get evaluated. They can do a rape kit there and collect samples and send them in and get the police involved if necessary. Hopefully you were not. It's always best to be safe than sorry. They can also test for stds and explain to you any further testing that the be necessary as well. Best wishes. ...Read more

But if you're intoxicated enough with alcohol, all kinds of things could happen that you'd prefer not to experience. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
