Is it normal to masturbate?

Is it normal to masturbate?

Some handy facts...: Normal men, women, boys, and girls masturbate (it's universal). It isn't harmful, as the body goes through similar effects during regular sex with a partner (but too much of anything may become a problem). Masturbation does not stunt height, cause hair loss or gray hair, make you weak, create heart problems, lower testosterone, affect virginity, lower fertility, change your weight, or damage eyes. ...Read more

Is it normal when your body is cold for my pee to be colder that what it normally is. Also my penis is quite cold. Is it normal?

Is it normal when your body is cold for my pee to be colder that what it normally is. Also my penis is quite cold. Is it normal?

Likely normal: As long as everything is functioning properly, it sounds normal. When you are cold overall, your body tries to pull heat from the areas farthest from your heart, which is why your hands and feet typically get cold first. Since the penis is sticking out from the body, it can also become cold too. Now if you are having pain, discoloration, or anything else unusual, certainly see a physician. ...Read more

Is it normal for babies to sweat?

Is it normal for babies to sweat?

Yes: Some babies sweat a lot more than others. Younger babies are often overdressed, so they work up a sweat during feedings. Young babies also can't kick their blankets off, so sometimes they sweat a lot during sleep. If a baby seems to change colors (turn bluish, dusky, or pale), has trouble breathing (breathing very fast when not doing much), or has other odd symptoms, a doctor should evaluate. ...Read more

Is it normal to be horny all the time?

Is it normal to be horny all the time?

No normal here: Unless accompanied by mania, it is impossible to call any level abnormal. I have seen men who claim to be literally constantly horny. I saw someone last week who can have sex up to 10 times a day. I saw one man who opted to divorce his wife because she wouldn't comply on an average of 14 times a day and he said that that was the average for his family, including all of his brothers and his father.He was not bipolar.This is likely one of those bell shaped curve issues and as such, no one is likely to come up with a hypersexuality disorder.Sexual addiction is perhaps a different issue.I hope my other colleagues on the site will chime in with their opinions as well. This would make for a very interesting discussion. ...Read more

What is it when your stool is black not sure if this is normal or a problem

What is it when your stool is black not sure if this is normal or a problem

It : It is unclear what context your black stool occurred or the charcteristics of the stool, besides the color. Stool normally is brown because of the presence of bile in the stool. Bile is made by the liver, concentrated and stored in the gallbladder, and secreted into the intestine to aid in the digestion of food. Depending on the amount of bile it contains, the normal stool color can range in color from light yellow to almost black. Stool color can change for a variety of reasons. Some stool color changes may signify an underlying medical condition, and others may be due to ingestion of food or medications. Blood from the stomach or upper intestines can turn the stool color black and sticky, described as black, tarry stool, associated with a distinctive foul-smell from the actions of the digestive enzymes on the blood. Patients may be anemic if this is acute or long-lasting. Causes of this include ulcer disease, medication use (that cause ulcers, e.g. Aspirin, ibuprofen), use of anticoagulants, liver disease, intestinal or stomach masses. Other causes of black stool are iron pills or bismuth-containing medications (such as pepto bismol). If the stool color is dark because of any of these medications, it is typically not sticky in texture and is not foul-smelling. ...Read more

Is it normal to have mucus in your vagina?, it doesn't have a smell but it is cloudy white, is that normal?

Not normal, get care: Any new or abnormal vaginal discharge should be medically evaluated. There are many possible causes, but at your age (22), STDs (chlamydia, gonorrrhea, etc) are high on the list if sexually active. And these apparently on your mind based on the topic tags you chose. STD also fits with your description of "mucus". See a doctor or clinic ASAP for exam and testing. Good luck. ...Read more
