I Heard That Its Not Good To Wear Panties Every Night To Bed Is That True
I heard that you are supposed to drink 8 cups of water every day, but whenever I try to drink that much it seems like I pee it all out. Is that supposed to happen? Should I be absorbing it more?
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.

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.

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.

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

Is it normal to have watery discharge every single day? I have to wear liners or else I'll get my underwear very wet.
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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

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
