Totally possible: If you haven't developed the characteristics of an adult male, eapecially when it comes to your genitals, it is possible that your testosterone never did its job. You should consult with a hormone specialist (endocrinologist) for a good work up after talking to your primary doc. ...Read more

What is the reason of thinees of face and penis, i used to masterbation from my childhood now I am 22 years old.Also I have depression also.

Thinness : Thinness of face and penis are genetically determined. Face can become fuller of rounder with weight changes. Penis size is unchangeable. None if this has anything to do with masturbation. I am glad to see you are getting help for your depression. If you were sexually abused as a child, please let your therapist know so you can work on resolving those issues. Best wishes. ...Read more

See your MD: You may have a vaginal infection. Another thought is slight leakage of urine may mix discharge and bacteria on your skin causing odor. Try using feminine wipes instead of toilet paper and then pat dry with toilet paper. ...Read more

I was thinking and wanted to ask if being born in 7months will affect the growth of my penis? Any help?

Not related: The penis should grow as it was destined to grow, regardless of whether one was born at full term or a month or two early. If one's penis and/or testicles seem very small, one should ask his pediatrician or family medicine doctor to look at the penis and testicles, either at the annual check-up, or at an appointment made for the purpose of checking genital development. ...Read more

After the birth of my son I have had severe hair loss, I have started eating necessary hair foods but the thickness and growth isn't back, how can I gain back?

Time is the answer: The stress of childbirth can often cause hair loss. Fortunately this is temporary. It will grow back. There is nothing that needs to be done, and supplements won't help. Just continue eating a healthy diet. ...Read more

I've noticed my eyebrows have been thinning since the christmas this year. What could be the cause of that? How can I make them grow back?

Many causes: Unfortunately it is hard to narrow down with the information that you have provided. Eyebrows are normal hair follicles, so they can be affected by the skin around the follicle or problems with the root. It could also be breaking of the hair shaft. Also it could be a product, dye or aggressive hair removal that could be the problem. Probably best to see your primary care giver. ...Read more

I took colostrum for 1.5 months and began shedding hair. My scalp is very itchy now. I have stopped taking it from today. Will the hair loss stop and my hair regrow? I have heard that the igf-1 is the cause.

I took colostrum for 1.5 months and began shedding hair. My scalp is very itchy now. I have stopped taking it from today. Will the hair loss stop and my hair regrow? I have heard that the igf-1 is the cause.

Probably.: I'm assuming you're talking about bovine colostrum. Any medication or supplement can cause temporary hair loss (technical name: telogen effluvium), and it nearly always grows back; but you'll have to give it some time. Insulin-like growth factors (igf) are probably not the mediators in such situations, but no one knows for sure. Biotin (a b vitamin) 5000 units/day may help to speed up regrowth. ...Read more
