About borrowing...: No worries if the borrowed underwear came straight out of her clean clothes drawer. Slight worry if the borrowed underwear came straight out of her dirty laundry basket and the borrower put it on right away. Slightly more worry if the lender yanked her under off her butt and handed it to the borrower, who put in on right away. No worries at all if the borrower washed the underwear before wearing. ...Read more

Hi I have a one 1/2 month old son and yesterday i caught one of my friends kissing him in the mouth he now has a bump. Hi I have a one 1/2 month old son and yesterday i caught one of my friends kissing him in the mouth i told her not to cause i don't know

Hi I have a one 1/2 month old son and yesterday i caught one of my friends kissing him in the mouth he now has a bump. Hi I have a one 1/2 month old son and yesterday i caught one of my friends kissing him in the mouth i told her not to cause i don't know

Without : Without examining your son and seeing the bump, it's impossible for me to be able to tell what it is. Babies get rashes all the time and many of them are harmless. If you are not sure what to make of the bump on his lip, take him to his doctor. They will be able to tell you if it is of any concern. Even if it is a cold sore, he will more than likely be fine. Cold sores or fever blisters are caused by herpes simplex virus type 1 (hsv-1) and are extremely common. Most people become infected as an infant or small child when kissed or by sharing eating utensils with an adult who has the virus. The virus is most contagious when someone has a cold sore, but can still be passed along by someone who does not. Many people do not even know that they are infected because the virus can "hide out" in the nerve cells for very long periods of time - for some people it hides out forever and they never get a cold sore. For others, the virus can "wake up" and that's when a cold sore happens. No one knows exactly what causes a cold sore to appear - sometimes stress, illness, fevers, colds, sunlight, cold weather, menstruation, certain foods, allergies, you name it! they usually last 7-10 days and are more of an annoyance than a danger unless you have a weakened immune system or contract a bacterial infection on top of the cold sore. ...Read more

Do this: Get tested once for HIV because every young man your age should do this. You will almost certainly be okay. Then be proud. Proud that you are a healthy young man. Proud that you shared love. Proud that you are saving the rest for that one special person. Proud to be sexual yet responsible. Well done, man. Maybe even talk with Dad. ...Read more

MaterniT21.: Your question was cut-off - but, if i understand correctly, you are concerned about the risk of Down syndrome in your current fetus because of your prior infant with down. My answer is easy: take folate, (folic acid) get genetic counseling and consider the maternit21 non-invasive test by sequenom (or others similar to it now commercially available) to determine this fetus' risk for down syndrome. Best of luck! ...Read more

My bf an I didn't have sex, but he had the tip of his penis in me. It was short but we still got Plan B in case, about 11 or 12 hours later. Am I ok?

Sounds like sex: A woman who says a boyfriend had his "penis in me" has had sex, if "in me" refers to the vaginal location (that's the definition of "having sex"). If no ejaculation heppens, the chances of pregnancy are almost none. Added to that the Plan B, the chances of pregnancy should be around 0%. One should be sure to get on a reliable form of birth control before "penis in me" returns. ...Read more

This weekend I had a huge fight with my husband. I discovered some lies and he was driving me crazy saying one version of a story, then switching to 2nd, the

Yes, it is possible: IUDs may be placed anytime during the menstrual cycle.A pregnancy test should be performed prior to insertion (and probably was) but there is always the chance that the pregnancy is too early to cause a positive test. Some insert IUDs DURING menses to make sure no pregnancy. Do a pregnancy test now....if positive, discuss options with your doctor. including referral for marital/personal counseling ...Read more

Exercise may help: Hello. The changes with pregnancy and age are often a loss of muscle tone, an increase in abdominal fat, and a resulting larger tummy. Exercise 'core strengthening' can help, and be sure you don't have a diastasis (separating of muscles) causing a hernia effect (consult a practitioner). A too big belly is rarely the real cause of a partner leaving. Look for other factors. ...Read more

Troublesome issue: In my location, such a statement by a 5 yr old would lead to a forensic (evidence style) interview by a specialist in child sexual exploitation and a thorough investigation of the family.Kids rarely make up stories about something so specific,although the kid may view rough washing of her genitals in this way.Most dads avoid any contact with this area in a 5 yo. ...Read more

Touched girls vagina quickly (one second), did not finger. Washed my hands throughly before touching my own genitals. Can HPV still stay on fingers?

Highly unlikely: Hpv is passed on through genital contact, most often during vaginal and anal sex. Hpv may also be passed on during oral sex and genital-to-genital contact. I think the extremely brief exposure, the nature of the exposure, and your prompt handwashing make it extremely unlikely that you became infected with hpv under those circumstances. ...Read more

Teach handwashing: There is no better and simpler way to prevent transmission of disease than washing hands with soap and water.

Taper off: If you look at how much caffeine you are taking in then taper yourself off you can avoid the discomfort of just quitting all caffeine. For exampe if you drink 6 cups of coffee and 3 sodas a day, cut down to 6 cups of coffee and 2 sodas a day for a week. Then cut down each week by one caffeinated beverage until you are off or down to no more than 1-2 per day. ...Read more

Healthy meals: You want your sugar to remain stable rather spiking, because that leads to rapid drops. Make sure your meals contain protein and healthy fats, not just carbs. Eat something that has all 3 components about every 3-4 hours. Don't ignore your first warning signs that something is "off" -- take a short break and eat something. Raw almonds or walnuts can make a good snack. ...Read more

Is depression after ha graduation normal? I have been crying on and off since grad miss my teachers feel like no one cares but ppl do  what do I do ?!

Grief & depression: Differentiating between grieving and mood disorder can be difficult, but is important since treatments differ. If suicidal thoughts or hopelessness are part of your experience, depression is more likely. Both conditions can bring crying spells, along with feelings of separation from others. Sounds like you know others do care, though. Talking with a counselor or psychologist may help a lot! ...Read more
