Can a woman get pregnant if the male ejaculates on or around the vagina but not in it? If the male ejaculates and the semen touches the vagina area but is not ejaculated in the vagina, is there a high chance of pregnancy?
Semen: Semen needs to enter the vagina for a woman to be pregnant. Here are the issues. If the man penetrates the vagina with his penis and there is pre-ejacualte, this could lead to conception. So, even if he does not ejaculate in the vagina, this could still lead to pregnancy. The second isssue, is that the passion of the moment, the penis could slip at least part way into the vagina without either party being fully aware during thrusting. The chance of pregnancy is lower in either of these scenarios than with ejacualation into the vagina. But, remember, it only takes one healthy sperm to fertilize an egg. ...Read more

Unlikely: To see whether your BP medication is too much or not, you check how your BP has responded to the medication. If BP is too low (below 110 mmhg) and you are having dizziness/fatigue, then it is too much, otherwise it is not. Leg "jumping" is not usually a side effect of the medication, but maybe due to a neurologic issue and will need a work up. ...Read more

Hello,: Hello, I want to start by telling you that I cannot diagnose the cause of your lump. It might be a pilonidal cyst. It is a cyst that usually contains hair and skin debris which is found at the tailbone at the top of the crack on your buttocks. It may be swollen, hard and painful because it could be infected. I would definately see your doctor. Your doctor may refer you to see a general surgeon if this is a pilonidal cyst. Even this isn't the cause, you should get a new mass evaluated. If you see your doctor you can hit two birds with one stone: 1. Get the people who love you off your back and 2.) get this mass diagnosed and treated. God bless. Take good care of yourself. ...Read more
