No.: Any age is too young. Any age is too old. No one is supposed to have panic attacks. We are all supposed to be laid back and take everything in our stride. But they happen. At any age.

Why is my sex drive growing everyday, I am 26 years married with a 4 year old son. My hubby is 38.

Female Sexuality: This is as it is designed to be a human female. Your sexual prime is still yet to come given your age. Men and women have very different experiences with libido and when they are most likely to be at their peak of sexual desires and needs.

If you like being in water, you can have your parents mist you with room temperature water, or even sponge your skin. If the temp is above 101 after 4 hours, then go to er. ...Read more

I am 21 year old girl. Can i increase my height?

I am 21 year old girl. Can i increase my height?

When the growth centers of the legs have quit making new bone, as would be expected by 16-17y in a female, you're as tall as you will ever be. An x-ray if the hand can be used to demonstrate you're bone maturity & if the growth centers show open growth centers you may grow taller.If not you, re done. ...Read more

Why is my ten month old son waking up crying every hour at night?

Doctor to evaluate: A ten month-old baby who starts crying hourly at night has a problem and should see his doctor. The problem could be ear pain, throat ulcers, head ache, tummy pain, tight clothes, fever, or something else that's preventing him from staying asleep.
