I give myself enemas at least 4 times a week! I tend to expell them into an adult diaper! Is this safe?
The only medical risk I can think of with frequent enemas is getting trauma to the lining of the rectum and then getting an infection from the irritated skin. I worry about water overload as well with such frequent introduction of water with the enema.
As a physician I am concerned enough that maybe you should respond with the reason you are doing this so often... ...Read more
Worn/wet adult diapers for over a year by choice. Not going to stop, otherwise well-adjusted and successful. Regular doc will eventually ask what's up. Worried about how to answer when he does. Help?

Can't recommend: A specific brand, but consider these factors: Do you just need a light pad for mild stress incontinence or be able to use a single diaper for multiple wettings. Choose a diaper that's compatible with your clothing, i.e. bulkiness. Pull-on underwear/pads may be easier to remove/pull up and down. Try a sample pack first. Plastic back contains moisture/odor. Should fit snuggly. Try out at home first. ...Read more

What is wrong with me do I have a fetish if I feel more secure in wearing an adult diaper and sucking on a pacifier?
Desire for care: Though I certainly may be wrong in your situation, it seems to me that your wearing a diaper and sucking on a pacifier is probably not so much a fetish as an expression of your desire for someone to care for you like a baby, providing all your needs.

I'm losing huge amnt of blood w huge clots;bleeding since7/7/13last 24hrs I'm bleeding thru 18g tampons into adult diapers. Losing so much so quickly, I'm scared. Feel weak. Should I go to er?
Yes, I would recommend you go to the emergency room at a local hospital as soon as possible because you have been having heavy
vaginal bleeding for the last three weeks.
There is a high probability you may be anemic
from your blood loss. You will need to have
a pelvic ultrasound to evaluate the presence
of uterine fibroids which may be causing your
bleeding and you will also need a CBC for
anemia. ...Read more
My 16-month old has diaper rash from amoxicillin prescription for uri. Also rx'd prednisone. Can the pred. Help pain for rash, or should OTC ibuprof better?
Use an ointment.: The pain of the diaper rash is mainly caused by the diaper and the urine and stool touching the rash. Coat his bottom with a thick film of zinc oxide paste (found in most over the counter diaper ointments) to protect it. If that does not help, then Ibuprofen is a good pain reliever. You should give the Prednisone as prescribed - it should never be given outside of what it says on the label. ...Read more
