Primera vez sexo con penetración, tuvimos que detenernos por sangrado abundante mío. Van tres días, sangro en las mañanas, es incómodo sentarse, al revisarme se ven ligeros rastros de sangre pero el himen no se ve roto. ¿Qué sucede?

You should be seen: Something was torn if there was any pain, even if you believe your hymen is intact. You could try sitting in warm baths several times a day to see if it gets more comfortable, but if you are unable to sit you should be checked. Hope you are not on your honeymoon! ...Read more

Is dr. Nina pierpoint's "wind turbine syndrome" a real medical problem?

Is dr. Nina pierpoint's "wind turbine syndrome" a real medical problem?

I say : I've looked over the claims and it seems to me that her work invited selection bias and anecdotal complaints from people who are somatizing. Science is the most cutthroat of all human activities, and if her claim was defensible, one of the nih research piranhas would have picked up on it and made a reputation by doing some real scientific work. Any effect if real is weak. J laryn march '13. ...Read more

Is dr. Larry wilson's protocol a successful program?

Uncertain: I disagree with some aspects of recommended treatments such as coffee enemas for detoxification purposes. I find no convincing studies proving benefit. In general, a working liver and healthy kidneys take care of detoxification quite admirably. Talking with people who have undergone treatment and discussing with various physicians and perhaps getting a second opinion would be worthwhile. ...Read more

Sir my  homeopathy dr says duchenne muscular dystrophy is curable with homeopathy should  l trust him?

Quackery & delusions: If that "doctor" really could do that, he'd win the Nobel Prize in Medicine. Homeopathy is not medicine. Practitioners have no real medical knowledge. Would you want your MD to practice 214-year-old medicine on you? Because that’s when homeopathy was invented. Join the 21st century.

Hola. tengo un problema actualmente tengo inflamacion en la cabeza del pene (no circuncicion) y me arde al orinar.

Balanitis? STD?: If you are uncircumcised, you may have balanitis -- inflammation under the foreskin. Most cases are harmless and clear up with improved hygiene (retract foreskin and wash with soap and water twice a day). If open sores, maybe herpes. If also discharge from your penis, it's an STD, e.g. chlamydia or gonorrhea. See a doctor ASAP for exam, diagnosis, and probably STD testing. ...Read more

3 doctors agreed:
Is drugs bad?

Depends!: Medications are neither inherently good nor bad. It's the (intent of) use that can make something "bad". Improper use, improper dose, improper frequency, improper route of administration can all make any "good" drug bad. Hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) used to lower blood pressure is a "bad" drug to lower cholesterol or cure strep throat b/c it does neither. Yet, it's a great drug for hypertension. Talk to your familydoc. ...Read more

No. Of course not.: Not a good thing to do. The intentional habit of inhaling burning organic material, combined with various chemicals used in the growing and manufacturing of that material (regardless of whether it is tobacco, marijuana, or any other plant) is bad for the body. Just think about it. Who would intentionally start something burning and inhale the stuff over and over and over? ...Read more

Is lead safe ?

Is lead safe ?

Not if inside us...: Lead is naturally occurring on earth. Outside of our bodies, lead is not a problem. If we eat or drink too much of it, it becomes a toxic contaminant inside our bodies. Lead is everywhere in our industrialized world, which means one shouldn't worry too much about it, but be sure our families are not eating or drinking things containing lead, nor using lead-contaminated containers or toys. ...Read more

How to get fat?

See below: First of all, i don't suggest getting "fat" as it brings about many hazards. But if you are underweight and want to gain weight, do so by increasing your calorie intake. You need to consume more calories than you burn. Don't do this by eating a lot of junk food. Make sure you're getting all your essential nutrients. Also, you can gain muscle mass by weight lifting or other activities like that. ...Read more
