Honoring Love: Gosh. I get it. Loss can be so much pain that everything hurts. I would hazard a guess that if she were here she may have an opinion to express. Wasting a life mired in the fog of alcohol is not in any way honoring her or your love. She would want you healthy and productive. Living a life of meaning and service. She would want her death to inspire you to make your life count. ...Read more

Housework + Baby = : Exercise! learn how to use the "football hold" or "colic carry" from a nursery nurse, & you'll have at least one free hand & 2 legs for zumba. Nursing burns calories, so eat at the very least 1500 cal/day. See www.Aap.Org parent handouts (healthy child section) for tips on putting her in her crib on her back, drowsy but awake, so she'll self-calm & consolidate sleep by 4 mos. Nap when she naps. ...Read more

Be safe - Plan B: From what you have said, better to be safe and get a Plan B from the local pharmacy. In the future practice safe sex or abstinence. Guessing you do not know what Plan B is, this is better known as the morning after pill. The sooner you take it after intercourse, the better it works at preventing pregnancy. ...Read more

Start any time now: Having a family n work makes it more challenging to find time to exercise, but you have the will, you will find the way to do it. Many women start exercing shortly after birth once the pain/discomfort of child birth has subsided. Start out easy and increase overtime. Chose methods that fit your lifestyle/work/family--living healthy is a life-time commitment. Eat well. See doc regularly. Good luck. ...Read more

Just yesterday i had sex with my gf and her 2 friends with out protection does it cause any infection to me ?and i all 3 girl gave me a awesome bj

Of course: Of course you can get an infection from this - do you think you are the first person they have done this with? You are playing Russian Roulette with your health by not using protection. You could have thousands of exposures through encounters with 3 women like these. Suggest you begin using condoms and consider if that "awesome" outcome was worth the risk of HIV or gonorrhea exposure. ...Read more

Im just wondering my 15 year old brother is really skinny and he wants to gain weight but cant please help me how do i help him put on weight?

Check for thyroid: Young people grow at different rates. This could be a skinny stage of your brother's growth. This being skinny may be a genetic trait. If either of these findings are the cause your brother should eat a well balanced high calorie diet with the help of a dietician. Before making this assumption he should see his MD and be sure he does not have a med. problem like a too active thyroid. ...Read more

Will i lose my extra body fat when i start my period my mother tells me, that when i start my period i will lose my extra body fat, I am at my average weight for my age and height, but i still have fat. Will i lose it naturally or is there anyway i can ge

Will i lose my extra body fat when i start my period my mother tells me, that when i start my period i will lose my extra body fat, I am at my average weight for my age and height, but i still have fat. Will i lose it naturally or is there anyway i can ge

Hello. : Hello. I would not expect that your bodyfat would drop because you start having periods. Maybe what your mother was referring to, was that your body curves can change with puberty. For instance, the waist can be smaller in comparison to the size of the chest or the buttocks. I am glad to hear that you have a healthy weight for your height and age. The most important thing is to be healthy. We all have fat. It is necessary to have fat in our bodies. One thing that i find sad, is that so many girls don't love their bodies. Many girls want to look like skinny models. Some girls go on drastic diets or eat too few calories to try to become really skinny. Did you know that it isn't always healthy to be really skinny? I recommend that you eat 5 servings a day of vegetables and 4 servings of fruit per day. Learn about eating healthy fats. I don't recommend that you try to eat really low calories at your age. Your body needs nourishment to grow. Try not to eat lots of junk food. Aerobic exercise is very important for good health; whether it is walking, or jogging or swimming etc. You take care. If you focus on being healthy and loving yourself - everything else fits into place. ...Read more
