"I am a girl .age 20 . now i felt that my hips are getting fat n large. can u tell me the reason n how to overcome it ?

Hips: As we get older (though you are still young!) our bodies change. Hips enlarge as we women get older. In addition, we all have a tendency to put on weight in different areas - some in the chest, some in the legs, some in the buttocks etc. You can maintain a good weight by exercise and making wise choices in food. ...Read more

Bone age: Usually by age 20 most women have completed their growth cycle. Some girls whose periods started late, i.e. age 16 or later could still be growing, however if your feet are no longer getting bigger, you are most likely at your top height. This can be confirmed by an X-ray of the wrist to determine bone age. ...Read more

Hi i want to lose my fear onto loosing my virginity what can I do to make it less painfull i just got maried and im afraid i got married about 4 months ago and i still can't be able to loose my virginity to the fack that im scared it would hurt what do yo

I : I am sorry you are dealing with this problem. I am sure it is putting a lot of strain on your marriage. Honestly if you do something (sex in this case) that you don't want to do, or are not ready to do then you risk possible harmful psychological effects. The best advice i can give you is to seek help from a marriage and family counselor. Therapy will help you work through your fear, and uncover hidden reasons behind it. Hopefully your husband is understanding, and will help you get through this. Best of luck. ...Read more

Im 18 and im 5'2 and 1/2 what should my normal weight be?  i am skinny and i weigh under my limit what can i do to get myself to my limit?

Hello Tori: It is good that you want to have a healthy BMI. Without knowing your actual weight, it's hard to give recommendations. If you are a little "under" your ideal BMI, that may be OK. Some people are naturally thin. If you are a LOT under, then you may have another health issue which needs careful evaluation by an adolescent expert. You may consider a HealthTap consultation for additional guidance. ...Read more

My daughter is 5 yrs old and weighs 60lbs  i am so scared i dont know how to get het or where to even start her on a diet and could really use your?

Start easy-: FIrst is to change what she drinks. NEVER any sugary drinks. That includes soda, Kool-Aid, fruit juice, juice boxes. NONE, ZERO. She can only drink water or skim milk. It's ok to use flavored water or the flavor enhancers to try and encourage her to drink water. Second thing for now is no seconds at meals. Prepare a plate of food, bring it to table (no eating in front of TV, etc), and that's it. ...Read more

Episiotomy: The birth experience is scary to think about. If they do need to cut, it is the outside and will be done to avoid you ripping the tissues when the baby's head comes out. The will numb it with a local anesthesia, it is called an episiotomy. The doctors and their helpers will tell you to start to push when you are fully dilated and effaced (thinned out).

Depends: There are formulas online that can calculate your expected height based on the height of your parents. When you stop growing depends on when you start your pubertal growth spurt. The later you start it, the longer you'll continue growing. Whether you have an issue with growth can be assessed by your physician. He can examine you, look at your growth curves, and order tests if indicated. ...Read more
