Can I use the sunbed if im 7 weeks pregnant?

No.: Long-term effects of sunbeds on pregnancy are not known for certain, but why would you want to take the chance?

You could use an artificial tanner, but the effects of those on pregnancy are not known for certain either. ...Read more

How do I know if I am predisposed to being sensitive to androgens? on Loestrn Fe 1/20 for a year and do not have acne or body hair, am I not sensitive

No acne: Not having acne is a good thing. Not having it likely means you are fortunate.

Genetic make up, ethnicity and body weight are some of the contributing factor in the distribution of body hair. If you have no pubic or armpit hair at all then evaluation may be needed ...Read more
