I hear that using tissue to wipe after urination is bad for your healthy. It is said that we should only wash it by water. Do we also need to dry it?

I hear that using tissue to wipe after urination is bad for your healthy. It is said that we should only wash it by water. Do we also need to dry it?

Nothing wrong...: It is nothing wrong to use tissue to tap & soak the last lingering drops of urine, which is effective and simple, especially in some with postvoid dribbling, which could be helped with urethral milking for men and draining the possible drops in the introitus by leaning forward. More? Ask experts like urologists for specifics and details. ...Read more

Is it bad to sleep with earbuds in while listening to music? I've never done this but i want to try it a few times to see if it helps me sleep

Sleep with earbuds: Generally speaking, it is better to sleep without earbuds in place. If you do, no harm will come, as i presume you are not listening to loud music while you are trying to sleep. The bigger issue sounds like trouble sleeping. A noise generator in your bedroom, playing soothing sounds or music is a better choice than earbuds. ...Read more

Ok don't laugh but how do I wear a tampon? And can I wear it at night when I'm sleeping and all day etc? Is it better than pads? Never worn one

Ok don't laugh but how do I wear a tampon? And can I wear it at night when I'm sleeping and all day etc? Is it better than pads? Never  worn one

Tampons are safe: Tampons are very safe when used correctly and often more convenient than pads. When learning how to insert a tampon, read through the guide that comes in the box. It is very helpful to put a hand mirror on the floor and stand over it, so you can actually see what you are doing. It is okay to wear tampons at night. Never leave a tampon in for more than eight hours without changing to a new one. ...Read more

When I have to move my bowls no matter what time of the night it is i can not sleep i toss and turn is this normal and why?

Bowels: I'm not sure i quite understand your question -- but if you need to have a bowel movement and don't go to the toilet, this could disturb your sleep. The natural choice would be to take care of your bowel needs and then go back to bed. If having bowel problems all day or into the night, that's another issue and needs to be addressed with your doctor. Be well. ...Read more

This is something a good neurologist may really be able to help you with. Until then do your best to avoid the trigger.

How is it possible to only have anxiety during the day and not at night, literally when the sun goes down? For me it never happens while sleeping.

How is it possible to only have anxiety during the day and not at night, literally when the sun goes down?  For me it never happens while sleeping.

Hard to Say: Anxiety is a strange thing. Everyone that suffers anxiety issues has different triggers & by definition it is difficult to control them yourself. You may wish to work with a counselor to help you learn to better deal with your anxiety during the day but worrying about why it is worse during the day than at night will not help at all & only make it worse! it could also be job related anxiety. ...Read more

They say TV/screens before bed is bad for you. However, for me, that is how I relax before I go to sleep. I can't fall asleep w/o it. It soothes me..?

They say TV/screens before bed is bad for you. However, for me, that is how I relax before I go to sleep. I can't fall asleep w/o it. It soothes me..?

Individual: Hello, most sleep researchers advise against it as studies have suggested that blue LED light inhibits the production of melatonin. Your particular routine may override these deleterious effects, however, and watching TV before sleep is certainly better/healthier than some things you might do. I think the real question is whether you are waking up feeling refreshed, and without aches and pain. ...Read more

Do I need to wear underwear in hotel due to risk of bed bugs?

Up to you: But wearing underwear won't stop bed bugs from getting on you. There is the rest of your body too. Just look for signs of bed bugs when you check in - small black specks between the mattress and boxspring, under the bed sheet, and at the head of the bed. Also, look for unclean bed linens. Just don't use a room or hotel that's unclean. ...Read more

I never wear underwear ever. Is it a risk to not wear any daily? Could I catch a disease from public places? Or even my own bed from having dirty feet

No risk, but why?: Using underwear does not prevent infections or diseases of any kind. That's not why almost everyone uses underwear. The main reason is to protect outer clothing from soiling by sweat, urine drips, moist farts, vaginal fluids, etc. But there is no health issue with or without underwear. ...Read more

Female worms lay eggs in anal folds causing intense itching. Treatment must be repeated in 2 wks. Hand washing & good hygiene can control spread. ...Read more

Ive gone to the doctors for a vaginal odor. All the tests came back fine. I shower every other day. Theres no discharge either. I wear cotton underwear but nothing when im home. Ive got cysts on my ovaries if that could have anything to do with it? Ive ha

Not cysts.: Cysts on our ovaries will not cause vaginal odor. Diet and medications, prescription or over-the-counter and supplements can affect the odor/taste of sweat, urine, stool, saliva and vaginal secretions. Keep a diary of your food and drink intake, and see if the odor changes with a certain food or drink. Otherwise, get a second opinion. ...Read more

Needs further eval: This is concerning, and warrants further evaluation. You should see your doctor as soon as possible, since it is not usual to have this much bleeding with a normal menstrual cycle. It may be just dysfunctional uterine bleeding, which is related to hormone levels, but other serious etiologies such as ectopic pregnancies, fibroids, and cancer are just several of the other possibilities. ...Read more
