I'm waist training. I wear a waist shaper some days. Are they safe?

I'm waist training. I wear a waist shaper some days. Are they safe?

Waist training?: If you mean training to slim down you waist and build a good strong core, then i'd have a suggest not using a waist shaper. Elastic waist shapers can artificially support your spine and therefore takes away the need for your own core muscles (abdomen and low back). This only leads to weaker muscles. If you're just wearing a shaper to go out on a date or getting dressed up one evening, go for it. ...Read more

M 22 year old girl virgin. I do heavy weight training exercises in gym can doing squats,lunges,& exercising on leg press machine in gym break hymen?

No, but...: It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. So, ignore the hymen. Usually, only in cases of alleged sexual assault upon girls and women do we physicians engage in the careful examination of hymens, collecting evidence of physical damage to be used later in courts of law. In normal everyday life, people should not be "checking hymens" nor thinking about whether they are broken or not broken. ...Read more

Varies: It varies somewhat based on the severity of the injury. If it is a fracture, you would be well suited to avoid exercises that put extra strain on that area such as seated military press, etc for 6-8 weeks. If it was more of a soft tissue injury, than basically you would just try to keep your activities to such a level that your pain is not aggravated, but could increase them as tolerated. ...Read more
