Is it true that your head grows proportionally equal to your body as you get older?

Is it true that your head grows proportionally equal to your body as you get older?

Not exactly.: Weight varies by height, tall people usually weigh more than short people, and a person's weight does grow proportional to height as you grow. The head size is not related to height or weight. You can have a big head if you are tall or short. But, if you have a small or big head, your relative head size often remains the same as you grow. That is, large heads remain large, for example. ...Read more

If your cervix sits far back and is tilted, does that make it harder for the sperm to reach? Is it better if he come deep inside to better the chance?

Here are some...: How much does the tilted uterine cervix contribute to female infertility? It is controversial although in anatomical sense such cervix may create a dam-like barrier like salmon swimming up and jumping over a dam; but physiologically, sperms just swim with no jump. To make sperms closer and easier to swim up into the Fallopian tube, depositing semen deep inside vagina makes sense... More? ask doc.. ...Read more

What do you suggest if I am 19 yrs old had a fever of 108f. My skills are onnly with combat he also said fevers are hardder on you the older you get. That true?

What do you suggest if I am 19 yrs old had a fever of 108f. My skills are onnly with combat he also said fevers are hardder on you the older you get. That true?

No way: A fever of 108 F would kill you - your body's cells cannot sustain any function at that high of a body temperature. So check thermometer or how to read it, was it really 100.8? Anyway, fever is just a symptom and don't need to be "combated". All you NEED to do is look for cause of fever and then deal with that. Always drink plenty of water with fevers so you don't dehydrate. ...Read more

They said that if i took growth hormons or do yoga stretching i can get taller even if I am 19 years old ! is that true ?

Can I still grow?: One, the simple answer is no. It is very late for any ethical physician concerned about your health to add growth hormone. If you take this anyway you are putting your liver and all of your hormone processes in trouble. Yoga is one of the best things you can do for your health but it will not make you grow any taller. ...Read more

I take vitamin D and calcium every day. I'm 56 and was told when we get older the body doesn't absorb enough D from sunlight. Is this true?

Is it true that nearsighted people won't need reading glasses when they get older?

Is it true that nearsighted people won't need reading glasses when they get older?

Possibly: It depends on how nearsighted you are. If only a little or a lot then you may still need glasses for reading. If you happen to have an amount of myopia (nearsightedness) in the same range as what you would need for readers than you would not. The natural nearsightedness would then offset the loss of reading vision (presbyopia). ...Read more

Is it true that it is nearly impossible to get pregnant while nursing? My daughter is 8 months old and is exclusively nursed. No period.

Less likely but no: Nursing seems to stop ovulation in some women for an unknown period of time.It is thought to be a "natural" or evolved way of spacing kids such that the first would not be deprived if another came quickly.However, ovulation is a silent process. You wouldn't know your body had resumed until menses returns and that signal would come weeks after silent ovulation.By then you could be pregnant ...Read more
