Is there any relation between using a condom and vaginal cancer?

Is there any relation between using a condom and vaginal cancer?

No: Condom use during sex would most likely protect you from one day ever developing vaginal cancer. The reason for this is that hpv is the major cause of vaginal cancer. While condom use decreases, it does not eliminate the risk of getting an hpv infection. Get regular pap smears and follow up with your doctor as directed. ...Read more

No: I actually wrote a page on this when the originally weird e-mail came out. It was full of scientific howlers and was traced back to someone peddling a "natural" deodorant. The talk will never end but everything since has been unimpressive. http://www.pathguy.com/antipers.htm. ...Read more

Is there a connection between cervical cancer and having sexual intercourse with circumcised man?

Is there a connection between cervical cancer and having sexual intercourse with circumcised man?

Not specificly: The present thinking on cervical cancer involves acquiring a virus during vaginal sex that may spend decades in your body before it begins to change your cervix & lead to cancer.Many strains of the virus exist & a man, circumcised or not, may carry it for decades without knowing it. So any carrier man can pass it to you. A vaccine to prevent 4 strains is available but only helps before you get it. ...Read more

Is there a connection between alcohol use and breast cancer?

Is there a connection between alcohol use and breast cancer?

Maybe weak: Epidemiology generates all sorts of ever-changing correlations. The review in jama nov '11 reinforced what most of us think; if there's a relationship, it's weak, and i suspect it has more to do with some other correlating lifestyle factor or the drinker's low folate (folic acid) levels. The relationship is anything but obvious clinically. ...Read more

Is there any difference between masturbation and sexual intercourse in regard to prostate health?

Is there any difference between masturbation and sexual intercourse in regard to prostate health?

No proof for either: The physiological effect of either is same including prostate health but differing in contracting STDs from sexual intercourse and in forging interpersonal relationship & bond. But overindulgence & obsession will in time bring about unwanted side effects like losing stamina, soreness around the perineum and even change in how you void. More?

Is there any correlation between use of iuds (mirena, in particular) and loss of sex drive? If so, what are ways to improve this?

Is there any correlation between use of iuds (mirena, in particular) and loss of sex drive? If so, what are ways to improve this?

Yes and unsure: In a questionnaire of almost 18, 000 women on a progestin intrauterine device (iud) like mirena, (levonorgestrel) roughly 40% endorsed experiencing "sexual disinterest" at least once. The manufacturer claims "decreased sex drive" occurs in 5% of users. It is very rarely stated as a reason for discontinuing an iud. Decreased sex drive in women may have multiple causes that are best addressed with your doctor. ...Read more

Is there any connection between breast implants and cancer? And if so, how serious is the risk?

Is there any connection between breast implants and cancer? And if so, how serious is the risk?

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has identified a possible association between breast implants and the development of anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL), a very rare cancer of the immune system: The FDA believes that women with breast implants may have a very low but increased risk of developing ALCL. However, further research is needed to fully understand the relationship between ALCL and breast implants. ALCL can develop in various parts of the body, including the lymph nodes and skin. Rarely, it can develop in the breast. According to the National Cancer Institute, ALCL is diagnosed in about 1 out of 500,000 women a year in the United States — and ALCL in the breast is diagnosed in only 3 in 100 million women a year in the United States. Researchers haven't yet determined whether the surface texture of an implant could affect the risk of ALCL in the breast, or whether the association is higher depending on the type of implant — saline or silicone. Any association between breast implants and cancer is concerning. Still, it's important to keep the potential risk in perspective. If you have breast implants, the new findings aren't a call to change your treatment plan or to have your breast implants removed. Remember, the possibility of ALCL is very remote. While research continues, visit your doctor for routine medical care, and report any signs or symptoms — such as swelling, lumps or pain — promptly. If you're considering breast implants, it is important to discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor and together decide what is best for you. ...Read more

Is there a link between anal sex and hemeroids in women?

Is there a link between anal sex and hemeroids in women?

Not really: There are no studies that show that people that engage in anal intercourse have worsening hemorrhoid symptoms or more hemorrhoid therapy. I personally see more in the way of anal fissures and if there is pain of bleeding associated with this practice, i would reconsider. ...Read more
