My two months old baby is vomiting lot.  Even when burped also some vomit is there. What can I do to prevent this ? Is this a normal thing?

Depends: Your baby may not be tolerating formula or breast milk and also may have smaller stomach. Would recommend trying soy or elemental formula and feeding half the amount given but feed on a more frequent basis. If this persists see your doctor. ...Read more

When I have an orgasm there's a lot of liquid. Is this pee? Is this normal or should I get checked? It happens a lot lately.

Orgasm: Female "ejaculate" has been debated in the literature. It has been shown to be urine. There really is no alternate source of fluid. It is probably fairly common and seems normal for you. It does not indicate anything serious and is not likely to progress. ...Read more

Masturbation can cause heart problems? When i masturbate I have noticed that my heart tends to speed up a lot and even skip a beat sometimes. Is this a serious problem that I should be worried about? I'm a 17 year old male.

Masturbation can cause heart problems? When i masturbate I have noticed that my heart tends to speed up a lot and even skip a beat sometimes.  Is this a serious problem that I should be worried about? I'm a 17 year old male.

Probably fine: It's normal for masturbation to cause rapid heart rate, and the occasional skipped beat when it's going that fast. The sympathetic nervous system is activated, essentially the fight or flight response. Hormones are kicked into gear to get that going, and those drive the heart as well. Unless you have documented heart disease, at 17 you should be fine. ...Read more

I had gastric bypass surgery in 2006. I was wondering if it is normal to have green bowel movements. I have them several times a month for like the past year or so. It is most noticeable the week around my period. Is this normal?

I had gastric bypass surgery in 2006. I was wondering if it is normal to have green bowel movements. I have them several times a month for like the past year or so. It is most noticeable the week around my period. Is this normal?

Interesting: If occurring several times a month, not likely associated with your period (unless it is also occurring several times a month?). If no other symptoms (pain, nausea, vomiting, fever, weight loss) then reassuring. Associated with certain foods/beverages (food dyes?). Might want to keep symptom and food diary to see if link. Would also discuss with your surgeon. Hope this helps. Good luck. Dr R ...Read more

I had a brain tumor removed 3 weeks ago and my scalp still has a lot of fluid under it and does not seem to be going down in a hurry is this normal?

Likely: Fluid collections under surgical incisions (often called a 'seroma') can persist for some weeks. Your surgeon would be the person best equipped to evaluate whether your wound is healing appropriately or if the fluid might suggest an infection. ...Read more

Is it normal to not have much feeling from an orgasm after having a baby?

Is it normal to not have much feeling from an orgasm after having a baby?

Not unusual: It is not unusual to have decreased sensation after child birth, but it should be temporary. Trauma to the birth canal can be partly responsible. The stress of having to raise a child can also mentally affect the quality of your sexual experience. If the problem does not resolve, then call your doctor. ...Read more

This is not my first pregnancy but this is new to me I'm 22 weeks and there are days he moves a lot and days he hardly moves is this normal or no?

OK: This is not uncommon. The growing baby may be "sleeping" often and then when awake, the movements will obviously increase. Be sure to keep regular appointments with you Ob/Gyn and let them know of any concerns you may have. Congratulations and best wishes. ...Read more

For the past two maybe three months my stomach has a twitching that it does...is it gas or something else...? Is this normal.. Its kind of annoying

For the past two maybe three months my stomach has a twitching that it does...is it gas or something else...? Is this normal.. Its kind of annoying

More info please: When you say twitching, do yo mean internal as in gas, or external as in seeing the muscles twitch. They are entirely different. With gas, is it upper abdomen with belching or lower abdomen with passing gas? Treatment approaches would differ, but pay attention to the foods you eat because understanding that can go a long way toward finding your solution. Hope that helps. ...Read more
