Sex : Sex is relative to the experience, for sure. That being said. She could be pregnant, even if that is the only time you have had sex though you would not know for at least a week or more. Timing is everything of course. Check a pregnancy test. Get one wth two tests and rest in 2-3 weeks if negative. Hot flashes are another thing almost entirely. Though not completely understood how they occur it appears hot flashes are related to changes in the level of hormones particularly estrogen. More than during menopause, when we take birth control pills, have excessive stresses, good and bad (thus sex or "sex"), pregnancy and other medication related side-effects--hot flashes are always possible. Unless they persist and evolve it is unlikely to be of significant concern. ...Read more

Sometimes after i'm asleep for half an hour i wake up feeling like a current of electricity is going through my body, it stops when i wake up and move?

Better sleep habits: Try relaxing prior to going to bed. Get a routing habit of relaxation prior to going to bed so your body and mind have time to slow down and adjust. Make sure you are getting a proper amount of rest each day. 8 hours is the current recommendation. Avoid caffeine or stimulants prior to sleep. And dont watch tv in bed. ...Read more

Is it normal to wake up a few hours a night between sleep cycles?It's usually just after a dream. I've never been one to sleep straight thru the night

Is it normal to wake up a few hours a night between sleep cycles?It's usually just after a dream. I've never been one to sleep straight thru the night

The best normal: The best normal is the one that fits you. I'll trust you not to use the idea to justify bad things, but if you've been living like this for years and are generally well, it's probably fine for you. We are not machined items that are interchangeable - we're a bit unique in most ways. If you do feel too tired after these nights, try not to stay up longer than you must and rest the next day. ...Read more
