How do you get over the hump of a plateau when on a diet?

Dieting plateaus: Hitting a plateau is a normal phase of sustained weight loss. Your body needs time to adjust to a new level of metabolism. Try not to be impatient. Just recognize that this normal phase is where so many people give up. Don't be one of them. If you just stick with your new habits, your weight loss will resume when your body is ready. You will hit another plateau also somewhere down the road. ...Read more

Cysts : Cysts are simply sacs of tissue filled with a substance that makes them expand. There are many types of cysts in the body, but the most common in the area you are talking about is a sebaceous cyst. Most are benign problems but some can cause damage to surrounding structure and some, even more rare, can be neoplasms. Cysts typically cannot be treated at home. Definitive treatment of a cyst requires complete removal of the tissue and, in cases where the growth is more aggressive, some surrounding normal tissue is removed to prevent a recurrence. For these reasons you seek care from a surgeon for evaluation, removal and biopsy. ...Read more

What do you suggest if i hit it on a tap recently and a little bit of the tooth came of. Can they shorten the other one to look the same or bond it?

What do you suggest if i hit it on a tap recently and a little bit of the tooth came of. Can they shorten the other one to look the same or bond it?

Suggestion-: See your dentist. There are a number of things that have to be looked into other than just how to equalize the contours of both teeth. More often than not, it is better to add to the chipped tooth rather than shorten the longer one, although that is still a possibility. Your dentist after examining you can discuss your options and suggest the best one. ...Read more

I've been on the Depo-Provera for a year and am planning to start a fam the end of the year. How do I flush the shot out and how long will it take to be out?

Can only wait: There is nothing you can do to remove the medication from your system any quicker. Fertility may return as early as 3 months after the last shot but may take up to 9 months. Practically speaking, that means it could be perfectly normal if you are unable to conceive for a year after your last shot. ...Read more
