Hi im 38 weeks pregnant and I was using a dildo to masturbate and noticed in the toilet there was two big globs. Is it my mucus plug?

Yes: Yes, orgasm can cause uterine contractions so likely there was some disturbance in the cervix that caused this mucous to dislodge. No worries, everything will be fine.

Used a dildo. My vagina started to burn. I'm 27 weeks pregnant. Could the burning be a chemical or something that could hurt the baby?

Not likely: It is not likely that using this toy would have caused any damage. More likely there was not enough lubrication and it caused from frictional irritation.

What can I use as cum in my squirting dildo that is safe?

What can I use as cum in my squirting dildo that is safe?

Cum, cum, now. . .: Depends where it'll be squirting. If it's on a face and might get in the eyes, you *don't* want anything irritating. If it's in a mouth, you probably don't want anything that tastes really bad or is unhealthy. Does the stuff you'll be squirting need to look good on camera? Does it need to taste like real cum? Once you can tell us that, it'll be easier to give you a more accurate answer.

Is it medically safe to use a toothbrush holder as a dildo for penetration? (The round ended kind that are shaped similar to the penis) just wondering

Not recommended: As a dentist, I would have to say the toothbrush is an important oral health tool. It would probably be wise to use it for its intended purpose. They make specific items which are probably a better choice for your intended use. Best of luck!

Is it safe for a teen boy to use mineral oil as lube while inserting a medium-sized dildo up his butthole?

No: There are a thousand and one activities for teen boys (or teen girls) to keep them busy, learn new things, and better understand themselves and their world. Recreational insertion of manufactured objects into any hole in the body (butt or otherwise), with or without mineral oil, is not regarded as a safe thing to do.

Is tanda safe to use while pregnant?

Is tanda safe to use while pregnant?

LED light therapy: Looked this up. Idea behind this product is that blue LED light (along with heat/vibration to "open pores") is toxic to bacteria and the red LED light is supposed to generate reactive oxygen species. According to a published study, this has the effect of removing old collagen making way for new. The science is not validated and controlled studies for safety in pregnancy not done. I suspect is safe

It is safe to use vix during pregnancy?

It is safe to use vix during pregnancy?

Vicks? Yes: Did you mean to say Vicks cough drops? Those contain menthol as a topical treatment for the throat. There is no medical reason why you can't use that during pregnancy. Like all medications in pregnancy, however, you should only use it for the time that you really need it. The only over the counter "medications" that should be taken for the whole pregnancy are prenatal vitamins and/or folic acid.

Is it safe to use the ipad while pregnant?

Is it safe to use the ipad while pregnant?

With precautions: The ipad and other similar devices, including the iphone, emit electromagnetic radiation. It is best to keep the ipad at a safe distance away from you during use (i.e. Not on your lap) and use it when you can on airplane mode. When you are using wifi or 3g, the device will emit more radiation. You might also want to invest in a ipad case that reduces radiation exposure.
