Is It Odd To Develop A Stutter As A Teenager When You Never Had One Before
Is it true that if you start having sex at a young age, it makes it harder for you to have kids later on?
No not directly: Sex at an early age has no effect on later fertility, however the more partners a woman has sex with, the greater risk of a sexual transmitted disease. Pid is a consequence and can leave a woman infertile, sterile or even result in a hysterectomy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes (read remainder): Yes, it's possible, but that doesn't prove cause & effect. More likely than not, it was just coincidental. In other words, you were bound to get an episode of erectile dysfunction regardless of whether you had a body massage or not. On the other hand, let's say you felt guilty about your massage, that stress could translate into ed w/your partner. But a physical link? Not likely. ...Read more

How long does a child have to be around a family member before getting use to them.....My daughter is almost 11months?
Stranger anxiety: Your daughter is entering the peak times of stranger anxiety from 9-15 months of age. Even if they have been around these family members routinely, most kids want mom and/or dad only and preferentially during this time. So it's a really bad time developmentally to try and get them used to someone new. Try to be there with them, and show pictures while doing fun things like reading and playing. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have a 3 months old who still has a startle reflex. When should that go away and how can I tell if it is a seizure instead?
Startle reflex: Is your three monther premature? Normally the startle reflex goes away after 4 months or so for a full term baby. It takes longer if your baby was premature. This is probably not a seizure. If this was a seizure, it would occur spontaneously. A startle reflex can be provoked. That is a significant difference. Sounds like your baby is alright! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
As a result of a meatoplasty from a circumcision when I was young, is it normal to have difficulty controlling my urine spray when I first begin?
I am a healthy 71 year old male I notice in the past few years, when I get a cut it takes twice as long to heal as it used to. Is this an age thing?
Possible: It is possibly related to age but is also influenced by nutritional status as well as other conditions such as cardiovascular health and diabetes to name a few. It is probably reasonable to see a physician for a history and physical if you have not done so in the past 5 years. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it true that ovulation occurs before the very first period ever for a young girl? I have read some books, couple state that it's quite rare.
Strict definition: In reproductive age females: both women and girls, menstruation (a period) is always by definition caused by a drop in Progesterone after ovulation. Thus any spontaneous (meaning no medicines taken) menstrual period at any age is always the result of an ovulation. It gets confused because there can be vaginal bleeding/spotting for other reasons, people may call "a period" - but it is not. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is it normal for a toddler to sometimes repeat last syllable of a word? For example truck-k-k or feet-t-t. He only does it once in a while.
Non-fluency is seen: In typically-developing tots age 2-5. Stuttering that starts < 3 usually is outgrown in ~ 6 mos. Have a speech/language therapist test him if it lasts > 6 months. Don't pressure him to stop repeating phonemes,the smallest units of sound in a language, or rush him. You can gently repeat what he says without the stutter, as in, " You'd like to play with the truck?" Read, talk & play. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had bronchiolitis when I was a young child, is there a chance of it coming back when you are an adult?
Is it normal to not want sex after a year of having kids? I would like to have those urges but i just don't get in the mood anymore like before.
Libido: That this is very common complaint. There can be any number of easy to fix factors. Typically, i find it a complicated situation with many factors. Are you still breast-feeding?
