Kevin is experiencing premature ejaculation though he did not have this problem before, even using condoms he still comes early, how can we solve it?
Many options: Luckily, there are many options when this issue occurs. A good first place to start is by trying a topical numbing agent (similar to lidocaine) - this is available commercially over the counter at most pharmacies. If that isn't as successful, you can talk to your doctor about adding a very low dose antidepressant, as these can be highly effective especially in combination. Hope that helps! ...Read more

Kevin im on citalapram, & clozapram, can I drink sprite zero and powerade zero along with water, and caffeene free tea?
Should be OK..: The two medicines you are taking should be ok together and the types of beverages you mentioned should not pose problem with th0se medications. But like all else, moderation is a good thing to follow. Excess diet drinks are not healthy--too much preservatives/sweeteners etc. Water=best drink! So, use common sense--live sensibly. Eat well, sleep adequately, exercise and see doc regularly. Good luck. ...Read more
I am usually using tobacco, khaini, etc. Yesterday some amount of blood is coming from my mouth, I can not find out the source.
YOU NEED TO: Find the source! It could be of dental origin such as periodontal (gum) disease or of medical origin such as a growth. This requires a one on one personal and clinical exam. Regardless, stop using tobacco which is a leading cause of oral cancer. It seems harmless now. Many people with untreatable cancers also thought so once. ...Read more

Hi Doctor Khan, I tested positive for HPV and gave my partner oral sex, can I pass it on to him from doing that? I previously asked my gyno and he sai
Makes no difference: Maybe I can help while you wait for Dr. Khan. If the two of you have been having sex for some time, he has already been exposed repeatedly to your genital HPV and you can assume he has it. Maybe he was the source of your infection. You probably don't have it orally, but if you do, oral sex will not change his risk. You can continue your usual sexual practices: no need to change now. It's too late! ...Read more

Bf and I were dry humping while I was on my period. (1st day)he had khakis&boxers & I had shorts, pad, &undies on. Am I pregnant? (Been nauseous lately)
Probably not: Unless you're not telling everything. The only way you can get pregnant is if some of the sperm gets out of his body into your body, in particular your uterus. Without that, it just doesn't happen. Actually there has been only one recorded case in human history where a woman got pregnant without a man's assistance but that happened over two thousand years ago and how that happened they say God onl ...Read more
