Proven effective OTC vaginal Ph balance control. Issue--non-STD odor & sweating. Sprays work; don't like 'em; sensitive skin. Often use bar deodorant.

6y10m old daughter w/ 3 dark, thin, pubic hair. No breast, axilae, bo, no diff in genitals.Since baby, 95 percent height/weight, soy milk bc allergies?

Early adrenarche : A bone age x-ray would be helpful to determine if further investigation is currently warranted. If she is overweight, that needs to be controlled because early pubic hair is often seen in overweight kids who may then develop early puberty. Any secondary sexual development prior to age 8 in a girl should be medically followed. Pediatric endocrinologists are often consulted. ...Read more

Can loose saggy skin on thighs worsen with cardio & strength training exercise in gym? Age 22 female.

I am a 60 yr. young male using HGH & testosterone supplements. Will using Pueraria Mirifica cream on 2 quarter size areas of skin decrease my testost?

I am a 60 yr. young male using HGH & testosterone supplements. Will using Pueraria Mirifica cream on 2 quarter size areas of skin decrease my testost?

Nobody knows: A cream labeled "Pueraria mirifica" is not an FDA-approved medication. That means there is likely no good, scientific research on it. So, nobody really knows what is in the container, how much of it is what the consumer thinks it is, how accurate the labeling is, what good effects there might be, what bad effects there might be, etc... Buyer beware. Watch out for pseudo-research results or claims. ...Read more
