Yes, however...: Yes, that is very safe. However, I would not just take it for 3 days. If your vit d level has been low I advise you take 5-8000 iu of d3 every day and have your levels monitored; optimal levels are 50-80 ng/ml.

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?

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

Why shouldn't I give babies water under nine months?

Why shouldn't I give babies water under nine months?

Nothing specific: Babies don't need anything but breast milk or formula for the first year but I see no reason to Prohibit it's use. Some prefer not to use it as it may interfere with normal feeding & slow growth. Kids can get water-logged if the drink too much. An ounce or two occasionally doesn't hurt any kid. ...Read more

Sir. My kidney was checked water is more, Dr. Said it should be from. 9 to 1.3 But my kidney water is 1.5 what exercise have to make ple give instruction?

Can you clarify?: There is no such test as "kidney water." You cite a common reference range for serum creatinine. At age 71, I am good with your creatinine being 1.5 if your health is otherwise okay and blood pressure is controlled. ...Read more

I intend on trying the water fast (drinking only water) for high metabolism. Will I be able to keep the 9-10 pounds off by doing this?

I intend on trying the water fast (drinking only water) for high metabolism. Will I be able to keep the 9-10 pounds off by doing this?

Nope.: The weight you lose is going to be temporary. Whatever diet you choose - paleo, adkins, water, beach, grapefruit, mediterranean, etc. - the weight will not stay off. Stick with the usual life-long concepts of portion control, regular exercise, and decreasing salt & sugar intake. Any diet program you choose needs to be one that can last you a lifetime. ...Read more
