Get professional advice and/or go to a pharmacy today for Plan B contraception -- ideally with professional advice from a clinic, e.g. Planned Parenthood or your personal physician. Good luck. ...Read more

Eyelashes?: hello ~ actually a good question. I dont know. I will guess about 4- 6 months, depending on how long you want them to be when grown.

You should ask an cosmetician..thanks ...Read more

Doubtful : Eyelashes grow out of "preset" areas on the lid. You can't move these. Chronic inflammation can cause the eyelashes to grow out of the glands (little sweat ducts called meibomian glands) around your eye. This is called distichiasis. Your manipulation of your eyelids may be making this worse and causing the eyelash to grow normal. Go to your eye doctor. ...Read more
