It's pressure on: Your tummy. Tell him to alternate the process- your legs resting on his. If you're sexually active and not using any protection, you can get pregnant. Unless you're ready to face the challenges of a married life and raising a family, think ten times about the consequences of your actions! Have a great year!

Get it checked: Chest pain is something we always suggest you have checked right away., so call your doctor and explain what is happening. They will tell you where to go for evaluation. If you are young, and the pain changes based on your position and by pressing on it, then it is probably not your heart. Avoid heart disease by not smoking, exercising regularly, and eating a healthy diet.

How long can bacteria from a stomach bug (GIV) live on hard surfaces such as a laptop?

Stomach bugs: Bacteria from a stomach bug (usually viruses), can last for several hours. But they all die readily with a bleach scrub. Consider wiping your laptop with a bleach wipe as long as it won't hurt the electronics.

I had my laptop on my stomach for a long period of time and it got really hot is there a chance it raised my body temp to the point of miscarriage?

No.: Placing the laptop near the gravid uterus is not a good idea at all! It emits waves that can affect the early embryo due to proximity and it generates heat topically, which is a known teratogen. It should not cause miscarriage, however no studies have been done to assess this possibility.

What dose it mean when your stomach is ice cold and the rest of your body is warm?

Probably nothing: Just make sure you do not have a fever or abdominal tenderness. It may just be that you drank a cold beverage. If you have a fever or tenderness then you may have an infection and further attention is warranted.
