Is there more misogyny than there was in the last decade?

Is there more misogyny than there was in the last decade?

Probably not: Western societies are more open and comfortable with the accomplishment of women.

I was told that there is tests for HIV which can detect the infection in no time rather than waiting for many weeks is that right?

Rapid HIV Testing: Nationwide, hospitals and clinics are adopting rapid HIV tests that provide results in minutes. This allows immediate counseling and direction to appropriate places for care. Unfortunately these are antibody tests, meaning they require 1-2 wks after exposure to return a positive result. These are highly sensitive tests but false positives are possible and subsequently need confirmatory testing. ...Read more

Is there a chance of survival in coma cause by astma, it's more than a week now.

Asthma: In order for asthma to cause coma, it had to be a severe attack which involved low oxygen levels in the blood for a period of time. Survival is not usually the concern if the person made it to the hospital on time to be resuscitated. The bigger question often is what degree of function will remain when and if they arouse from this comatose state if the coma is not being artificially created. ...Read more

If there is little to no marijuana use in last 6 weeks of third trimester and marijuana is still found in the meconium, what happens after that?

Depends: States vary in their handling of cases where drug exposure has occurred in pregnancy.In my state casual use would not generally end up with any studies done on baby unless a maternal screen was done at some point & found positive.Then you end up on a watch list given to all hospitals. At the least, a case file is opened by cps, & depending on the drug, the child may or may not go home with mom. ...Read more

I have had several cavities for nearly a decade - one tooth is missing a third. Besides the discomfort/eventual tooth loss, is that dangerous?

Absolutely: Your teeth are part of your body. Would you let your finger, foot, head, heart, brain rot away? I hope not. Would you let termites eat your house away? Would you leave a hole in your roof until it collapses destroying the rest of your house? While some cavities may seem inconsequential now, left untreated they can become infected and kill you. ...Read more
