Can I take althea pills even im not irregular, don't have partner/sexually active &doesnt have pimples? Just to have more female body. Thanks

My body: I don't know what Althea pills are. You can always take pills, but 1. what are you trying to achieve by taking a pill and 2. what are the risks - what can happen that is really, really, really bad? There are all sorts of ways to alter your body including surgery and injections. It is normal to want your body to look like....the opposite. I wouldn't want to risk stroke or leg clots for looks. ...Read more

I have been sexually active for years but have never had an orgasm (woman). Is there something wrong with me?

I have been sexually active for years but have never had an orgasm (woman). Is there something wrong with me?

No, its common: Many women have a hard time having an orgasm. Some women never do. Some can only have an orgasm through oral or manual stimulation, not with sex. This can be fixed if it bothers you. First get a physical exam to make sure you are normal, ie no hooded clitoris, etc. Then ask for help from a sex therapist. 90+% of 1st orgasms happen with masturbation, so if you have never had one, start with that. ...Read more
