Can you tell me home remedies to get fairer skin for men?

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.

Doctor & therapister: There are medications to help w/ erectile dysfunction, but there may be other things to investigate as well. Are you nervous about sex? Are things ok between you and your wife? Did you experience any stressful situation in childhood that may have created a negative feeling about sex?

Should marriage be 50/50? Where do women get the idea that men should go out and do all the work support the house while the wife stay home all day?

Marriage: People have very different expectations of male and female or partner roles in relationships. Some have traditional views/expectations and others 50/50, and others have even more non-traditional expectations. The most important aspect is mutual respect.

My dad worked as an autobody repair man from the time I was 2 til 16. He came home smelling like the shop/dust but showered after dinner.? Am I at risk?

Not likely: I wouldn't be completely surprised by an increased risk of hypersensitivity to some chemicals (you might be more likely to get short of breath around the same chemicals), but this has never been studied. I would be surprised by increased risk of malignancy (also unlikely to have been studied). Answer: we don't know, but not likely ...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 : 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

A : A new lump in that area could be due to many things. It can be an inflamed cyst, ingrown hair or boil, or inflamed lymph node.

Is there a home fertility test for men?

Is there a home fertility test for men?

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
