Lightening your: Skin, in my opinion, is not good for your physical or mental health. I know this may be a cultural issue but please try to simply keep neat, clean, and respect yourself and others.

Communicate your concerns and needs with your husband/partner and seek professional help if needed to address the challenges. ...Read more

Stress/anxiety can also cause. Sounds like they ruled you out for an acute heart attack but if you continue w pain during exertion, shortness of breath you might need additional outpatient cardiac workup (stress testing, etc). ...Read more

86yr old man has chest pain only when he walks for short distances when home and relaxed ok. Wd it be risky to operate to open arteries at this age?
Angina on exertion: The description is classic for coronary artery disease causing chest pain/angina on exertion. I am not sure if he is already maximally treated with medication to help with symptoms. If he is still in relatively good health--robust 86, a catheter-based angioplasty is not unreasonable. I have an 88 y/o had valve replacement surgery and is doing well. So, I suggest discussing with his doc. Good luck. ...Read more

There are many doctors that can assess you: your regular doctor, your fiance's gynecologist and some urologists can provide you with a kit to test a man's fertility.
These kits may also be available otc, but can be costly (in the $100 range). It would be most prudent for you both to see your fiance's gynecologist and advise him/her that you would both like your fertility tested. Your fiance is also a little older and may need her fertility tested as well. Also, for best results, it will be essential for you both to observe healthy life styles and for your fiance to begin prenatal care and supplements so that her body can be a healthy environment for a baby to grow in. ...Read more

Yes. Not a full test: The over-the-counter fertility test for men is called spermcheck and tests if a man's sperm count (concentration) is low or normal. A full semen analysis (sa) through a fertility clinic looks at sperm count as well as motility (% that are moving) and morphology (% of normal-shaped sperm). Some clinics test sperm antibodies too. So the home test is better than nothing but not as good as a full sa. ...Read more

All of these have amounts of carbohydrates but the majority is protein. The protein nature makes the seminal fluid viscid, thick and stringy. With time, it liquifies & stringy. ...Read more
