Does lemon really stop your period? If not, what can I do to stop it for a day?

No not lemon: Lemon will not stop your period. Stopping the period is possible with birth control pills or a medication called Progesterone if taken at the right time. If you're already on birth control pills, just skip the placebo blank pills and go straight into a fresh pack. ...Read more

What will happen when i tell my general doctor that I am transgender and want to start hormone therapy?

No: Sleeping pills should be used for only a brief time and for a stressful situation which is not normal. Sleeping pills alter the stages of sleep and quickly lose their efficacy creating "rebound insomnia" where one goes to seep briefly but then awakens and cannot sleep. The Stanford Sleep Center is a world expert on sleep and advises against sleeping pills. See their recommendations for more info. ...Read more
