No: Normal by definition is what happens to most healthy people. There are a lot of people who cannot tolerate spicey foods, though. Usually they get heartburn or a similar reaction.

Is it possible that I do workouts and eat completely healthy while pregnant?

Okay to workout : Exercise in pregnancy is excellent. You will need to listen to your body, as there are many changes happening to your heart, lungs, and blood vessels. Remember to keep hydrated and avoid maximal exertion. Swimming, yoga, weight training are good alternatives to high impact activities as you get further. Eating a well-balanced diet is also recommended. I followed my own advice during my pregnancy! ...Read more

Is it true that if you bleed on the iud that you are having a miscarriage, even if it isn't that much blood but I am having sever cramps?

Is it true that if you bleed on the iud that you are having a miscarriage, even if it isn't that much blood but I am having sever cramps?

Not at all: If you think you might be pregnant check then check a home pregnancy test. They are cheap, reliable and available at any pharmacy. Irregular bleeding with an IUD is common and certainly does not mean that someone is pregnant or having a miscarriage. Consider chlamydia testing if you are with a new partner and the spotting is a new problem. ...Read more

I have a craving to eat hookah charcoals . Are there any long term side effects? I am not anemic, and take vitamins so I do not think it is pica.

Don't eat non-edible: I cannot imagine that eating charcoal is not somehow harmful. Generally an urge to consume non-edible substances is pica regardless of vitamins or anemia. You should consult with a psychiatrist as soon as possible. ...Read more

Im pregnant but have no appetite to eat.. Up to the point that i vomitted  food after eating them.. Not on purpose.. What should I do?

Hyperemesis: You must make sure you are well hydrated. If you are vomiting, be sure you do not become dehydrated. Drink plenty of fluids and even electrolyte solutions like gatorade or even pedialyte. If you cannot even tolerate liquids or are becoming dehydrated/loosing weight you must be seen right away by your OB or in the er. Good luck! ...Read more

Pooping durning sex I have been taking lichi probiotic super fruit and im not sure this might be related to those pills not sure but durning sex I have been pooping i believe thats what it is.

Pooping durning sex I have been taking lichi probiotic super fruit and im not sure this might be related to those pills not sure but durning sex I have been pooping i believe thats what it is.

My : My best advice for you is to stop taking the probiotic for a few weeks and see if the bowel movements during intercourse stop. If they do then i imagine taking the probiotic is not as important as not having a bowel movemment during sex. If this is not the causethen visit your doctor for a medical evaluation for fecal incontinence. There are multiple causes of fecal incontinence including nerve or muscle damage, constipation, rectal cancer or prolapse etc. All the best. ...Read more

I absolutely despise my period; I hate being bothered with it, it hurts, and I feel bad during it. Any possible way to make it less often if not never?

I absolutely despise my period; I hate being bothered with it, it hurts, and I feel bad during it. Any possible way to make it less often if not never?

Try birthcontrol: I would suggest that you see a gynecologist. Have a complete exam and discuss your concerns. There is a good possibility that birth control may be suggested. Sometimes regulating your periods may make you feel better. You probably will make the duration of your symptoms not as long. Please read side effects of birth control pills though. It is still is your decision. ...Read more

I am never hungry but I always want to eat is that weird or normal?

I am never hungry but I always want to eat is that weird or normal?

Most likely neither.: When one is not "hungry" but always "want(s)" to eat that sounds like some type of eating disorder. It seems you are worried about how you are dealing with wanting to eat all the time but never being hungry. It isn't weird but it isn't normal either. Talk to your doctor or a counselor to help you answer that question. ...Read more

It's normal: Each individual has a unique preference for how often sex is desired.
