Can I get pregnant through dry humping? I wore panties & sweatpants, & he was wearing boxers. But my sweatpants had a white ejaculation stain on them.
Extremely low...: It's very unlikely because sperms will die soon out of their "native" environment of semen. But exactly how long is unclear. Like we see that a person dies within minutes after stopping breath; so & similarly, we may assume sperms will die within 10-30 minutes. In your scenario, all-in-all, the likelihood to get pregnancy is almost next to zero. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I should have said: may I drink black decaffienated tea before a cholesterol test? I omitted the "black." I don't drink herbal teas.
Black tea/ cholester: i usually tell people just to have water ( 8 to 16 oz) so they are hydrated before a cholesterol exam, There seems to be some mild evidence that chronic intake of green/black tea can lower LDL cholesterol after 12 weeks ,so there may be a small impact , with resulting lower cholesterol. http://www.webmd.com/cholesterol-management/news/20030623/tea-extract-can-lower-cholesterol ...Read more

Nothing wrong?: It sounds as if you (1) are iron deficient, whether or not you are anemic; (2) need to see a dermatologist for possible telogen effluvium; (3) need another opinion as to why you have diminished exercise tolerance. If someone like you says there's something wrong, there's something wrong. ...Read more

Had EGD performed today & was given Versed & Fentanyl before procedure. I think I woke up during it. My dr. said he gave me diphenhydramine too. Why?
Reasonable choices: the agents that you mention are quite standard for endoscopy. Diphenhydramine (Benadryl), commonly used for allergies or sleep, when used properly can have additive effects in keeping moderate sedation for endoscopy. None of these agents are full anesthesia, thus commonly people recall waking up, but dose and experience can vary greatly not only with person, but from session to session ...Read more
