What type of physician would i see to get a male ferltity test?  Are there any on maui?  What is a ballpark cost. I am a 56 year old man marrying a younger 38 year old woman.  We would like to conceive. Are the home systems recommended, or would a full fl

There : There are many doctors that can assess you: your regular doctor, your fiance's gynecologist and some urologists can provide you with a kit to test a man's fertility. These kits may also be available otc, but can be costly (in the $100 range). It would be most prudent for you both to see your fiance's gynecologist and advise him/her that you would both like your fertility tested. Your fiance is also a little older and may need her fertility tested as well. Also, for best results, it will be essential for you both to observe healthy life styles and for your fiance to begin prenatal care and supplements so that her body can be a healthy environment for a baby to grow in. ...Read more

Can an 8 year old boy disvirgen a girl of 5 years. And at what starting age can a boy be able to penetrate a girl.

Can an 8 year old boy disvirgen a girl of 5 years. And at what starting age can a boy be able to penetrate a girl.

Abuse: To be honest, such a question should result in a call to local child protective services. The second portion of your question is irrelevant and the girl in question should immediately be seen by health care professionals or law enforcement. This is abuse by any term and my hope is that your username can be established to an actual name to find a way to seek professional investigation. ...Read more

I am a 38 year old male with a 45 yr. Old wife with a greedy sex drive , at what point will her drive start to deminished.  Do they ever lose the erge?

Perhaps: Perhaps rather than viewing this as a problem of your wife's ("greedy sex drive") might it be possible to be grateful that she still finds you attractive? Or, if there's a divergence in your sexual appetites, perhaps you could see a couples' counselor together, and work out your differences. Couples' counselors can help with sexual incompatibilities as well as many other things. ...Read more

Can you tell me is a BP of 145/92 high for a 65 year old woman?

Can you tell me is a BP of 145/92 high for a 65 year old woman?

A little bit: The 145 is okay but the 92 is slightly high. Try to avoid xs salt, doing a little exercise, and, if you're overweight, shedding a few pounds. It should correct your few extra points of bp. Be sure you're measuring your BP at complete rest - check it several times and average them for the most accurate reading. ...Read more

What to do if i'm a female who took Prozac (fluoxetine) for a year. A complete loss in libido and lubrication has occurred. Plz help?

What to do if i'm a female who took Prozac (fluoxetine) for a year. A complete loss in libido and lubrication has occurred. Plz help?

Go see your doctor: Tell your prescribing doc what's happened as you've stated above. Changing antidepressants often solves the problem. If that's not possible, consider drug holidays (altho Fluoxetine has a very long half-life). Some notice improvement by switching to Bupropion or adding enough to allow for lower Fluoxetine dose. Regarding loss of lubrication, consider water soluble solutions as possible option. ...Read more

I'm a 32 yr old male that has had a lumbar fusion. What are the best excercises to do after the healing process for my back?

A lot!: Lifestyle changes are important like not smoking, weight control and regular exercise. Exercise can include walking, elliptical and stairmaster machines to start and then increase it in terms of cardiovascular workouts combined with core strengthening and flexibility. Just avoid rotation/flexion combinations of movement and no free weights from the floor like squats or deadlifts. Pt can guide. ...Read more

I am a 38 year old male going to a urologist for the first time for a non STI epididymitis exam. Can you tell me what will the first exam be like and ?

Male genital exam: The doctor will examine your genitals, including gently feeling the testicles. Maybe a digital (finger) rectal examination of your prostate. Collection of urine for testing. Maybe an ultrasound exam of the testicles. Altogether pretty much painless, except massaging the prostate is uncomfortable, but not all that bothersome for most men. ...Read more

What is the I deal weight for a 5ft 5 Australian female aged 22 years old? Is BMI a good measure to rely on?

What is the I deal weight for a 5ft 5 Australian female aged 22 years old? Is BMI a good measure to rely on?

Can't tell, but...: A starting point is 130 lbs. A lot depends on a person's body build. Some are naturally very thin, others thick or big-boned, but most people are somewhere in between. "Australian" is a location, so that doesn't help either, as many different types of bodies are in Australia. BMI is helpful if a person is of average musculature. If very muscular, a perfectly fine person will have a high BMI. ...Read more

How can I shed about 40 to 50 pounds this year of 2016? I weigh approximately 256 to 262 any given day and I am a 47 year old male with light activity

How can I shed about 40 to 50 pounds this year of 2016? I weigh approximately 256 to 262 any given day and I am a 47 year old male with light activity

That can be done: Losing 1 pound each week is considered easily done, in the big picture of weight loss desires. One has to burn calories by any means possible (keep moving, keep moving, keep moving). One cannot eat more calories than needed, but instead must eat less calories than needed... which will make the body start using up that 100 pounds of stored fuel. It is a simple concept, but takes will-power. ...Read more

Not good to worry...: It's not good to worry about things one can do nothing about. At age 17, most girls are finished growing unless one comes from a family of late bloomers (just look at the growth pattern for sisters, mom, ; mom's sisters). However, one can get a healthy amount of calcium, vitamin d, and exercise... To maintain the current height. Girls also can wear heels (not too high or risk bad ankle injuries). ...Read more
