I'm having a guy bring me his sperm in a cup to put in my vagina. Too get pregnant. How long will the semen be good in a bottle?

Here are some...: First, one needs to know the quality of semen such as count, concentration, motility, & shape of sperms; second, how the semen is collected & preserved. With so many unknown features, no one can say how long the sperms in semen may survive although the sperms from ejaculated semen inside the vagina may live for 3-5 days. So, seek counseling & I would advise trying not to do self-insemination. ...Read more

I accidentally set a small, plastic cup on fire in my room. The smoke has pretty much cleared, fires out. Is it safe to sleep in there?

Hopefully no fire: Hazards. The chemicals in plastic are only even minorly hazardous if you have asthmatic reaction to it. If you haven't by now.... no wheeze, difficulty breathing, then unlikely to happen. ...Read more

I have EBV, & yesturday I caught my 1 yr old son drinking water from my plastic cup, sometimes he licks cups. Is the trabsmission rate high? I'm Worrie

Unless your son has a particular immunocompromising condition (had a bone marrow transplant. Etc.), I do not think this particular incident should raise any alarm. ...Read more

37 weeks pregnant and burnt a plastic cup in microwave. When I opened microwave, fumes poured out. I inhaled much of the fumes. Any risk to my baby?

37 weeks pregnant and burnt a plastic cup in microwave. When I opened microwave, fumes poured out. I inhaled much of the fumes. Any risk to my baby?

No significant risk: Plastic fumes are not good for anyone but by 37 weeks your baby is almost fully developed and this should not have a significant effect. This would have been more worrisome in the first trimester (but even then would probably be OK unless you really inhaled a large amount). Don't worry. Hope your delivery goes smoothly! ...Read more

My breast cup size c plastic surgeon said a breast lift will take me down to an a cup is this true?

My breast cup size c plastic surgeon said a breast lift will take me down to an a cup is this true?

2cups less=reduction: All reductions inherently include a lift but the reverse is not true that isolated breast lifts include a significant reduction in volume. So you may be confusing the two. A board certified plastic surgeon will not be making that error. To clarify, you should go back for a second consultation. If you are trying to go through your insurance then they only allow a breast reduction&that is 2 cups less. ...Read more

I'm 20 years old and a 32 B cup im very insecure of my breast will taking estrogen help me. I do not have the money for plastic surgery?

Estrogen may help: Many, but not all women experience an increase in breast volume by taking oral contraceptives. The increase is modest, 1/2-1 cup size. If you are underweight, gaining weight up to a healthy weight may also help. Breast size has no bearing on ability to breast feed. Thanks for trusting HealthTap! ...Read more
