I had trichimonasis in 2010. My husband cheated. I had it again jan 2012. Now in jan 2013. It makes no sense. If he was cheating it wouldn't be 1 a yr?

I had trichimonasis in 2010. My husband cheated. I had it again jan 2012. Now in jan 2013. It makes no sense. If he was cheating it wouldn't be 1 a yr?

Why not?: You do not get trichomonas non-sexually 99.99% of the time. Your husband, if he was not treated when you were, could continue to reinfect you since many men have no symptoms. This, however, seems unlikely. You may need some marital counselling, and more importantly you must go and get tested for other stds, partic HIV and syphilis. Good luck. ...Read more

If I want to lose weight do you recommend cheat days? (A day of the week/month where you eat whatever junk or fast food you want)

If I want to lose weight do you recommend cheat days? (A day of the week/month where you eat whatever junk or fast food you want)

No: All you will do is defeat the hard work you have done the rest of the week/month. It's total calories that you don't eat but do burn off that leads to weight loss. It's 3500 calories to the pound. You can't learn how to eat properly for the rest of your life if you start off with cheating. ...Read more

Had my insulin levels checked and it is 35 which I was told is high? Could this have cauaed my gastroparesis? Have an appt w/ GI in jan.

Had my insulin levels checked and it is 35 which I was told is high? Could this have cauaed my gastroparesis? Have an appt w/ GI in jan.

No: An Insulin level doesn't mean much by itself, particularly without knowing a concomitant blood sugar or if you were fasting. If you have gastroparesis as a complication of type 2 diabetes, then the Insulin level suggests you still make insulin, though not enough to control blood sugar. High Insulin levels don't cause gastroparesis. ...Read more

I just has my flu shot (southern) 2 mos ago. I am going to china this june. Would I be immune to h5n1?

I just has my flu shot (southern) 2 mos ago. I am going to china this june. Would I be immune to h5n1?

Probably: From what I read on line the World Health Organization did make some recommendations for some changes in the Southern vaccine viral products but it appears the vaccine is still designed to cover H5N1. If concerned, check with your local health department or MD for the latest WHO recommendations on travelers. Http://www. Cidrap. Umn.

Little chat of my period is -jan-5-2012 my period appear, feb it didn't appear, march 1 it apeear wen is my ovulation? Am trying to convice. And what cycle is my? Come this month next month wouldn't come?

With: With women who have irregular periods, it can be very difficult to determine the time of ovulation. In general women ovulate 10-14 days after the first day of their last period. So for example, if you had a period on march 1st, you would typically ovulate on march 10-14th. Of course this can vary from patient to patient. ...Read more

Ex cheated on me in june. Got tested for stds in July. Found out the girl has hepatitis and herpes. How long does it take to show up? I'm freaking out

Ex cheated on me in june. Got tested for stds in July. Found out the girl has hepatitis and herpes. How long does it take to show up? I'm freaking out

No need to freak-out: STDs, including herpes and hepatitis B, are transmitted ineffiiciently; that is, most sex with infected people doesn't transmit. Your ex partner should be professionally examined and tested for these and other STDs. If he isn't infected, you couldn't have caught anything. New herpes or hep B often asymptomatic. If symptoms, usual onset 3-10 days for herpes, 4-12 wk for hep B. No risk for hep C. ...Read more

Had 2 early miscarriages in june and august The acne on my chin/jawline has gotten really bad. Is this the result of the miscarriages being so close?

On Depo-Provera so I don't have periods. Last time I had sex was Dec 6. Tested with cheap $1 pt on Jan 3. Was neg. Is that accurate? (Shots always on time)

Yes: In the U.S., both the cheap and the non-cheap home pregnancy tests are accurate. These urine pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened). Can repeat with a different brand, if worried. ...Read more

I am hitting the scale at 145kg and am concerned about my health. I eat healthy on my main meals by eating low calorie but I am always hungry which makes me cheat by eating junk food. Is there anything that can assist to suppress my hunger?

Eat healthy fats: Eating low calorie meals can make you feel hungry. If you can increase the amount of unsaturated fats in your diet, nuts, salmon, avocado, then it will help keep you feeling full. In addition to diet, exercise is also important to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Another reason for feeling hungry is having diabetes. Please see a doctor if you are always hungry, thirsty, or constantly urinating. ...Read more
