How do I get other people to be comfortable around my 17 year-old daughter's underarm hair? She doesn't shave it.

Other people prob??: People have whatever social expectations they grow up with & learn to accept. That your 17yo chooses to "go european" is her issue & the peer pressure she feels with this or any other choice about personal hygiene or grooming is her business. As a mom/dad you should not feel compelled to make excuses for her at this age or try to convert your acquaintances on the issue. ...Read more

Took a 2mg hydromorphone pill & a 4mg 5 days apart. Underarm hair test 21days later will it show 2 seperate doses taken & exact mg total in hair?

Also if you have legitimate prescription for the drug it does not matter if it shows up in test. When the MRO (the doctor who reviews your test) calls you to discuss, you let them know you have prescription for the med. Mg totals do not show up in any drug test. ...Read more

Hi,: Hi, leukorrhea is cloudy, white or slightly yellow vaginal discharge that is normal in females that have undergone puberty. The thickness or amounts can change at different times (like when a female ovulates or gets pregnant). There can be more if estrogen is out of balance (which can happen when a girl is just starting to get periods). It sounds like your discharge has a mild odor after you have it for a while and is very light yellow. If you have darker colored discharge, it is thick (like cottage cheese) and it has a bad odor, that can be signs of an infection, especially if there are symptoms like vaginal redness, burning, itchiness or pain with urination. ...Read more
