True that vaginas expand immensely and look very different from what they used to before childbirth? Or do they go back to normal size? (Not hymen)

Back to normal size: Women (and their body parts) usually go back to "normal size" after delivering a baby. The issue here is actually, "What is normal size?" What is normal after having one baby, is not the same as what was normal before having a baby. Likewise, a NORMAL 30 year-old woman does not have the same identical features as a NORMAL 20-year-old woman. Everyone changes over time and through events. ...Read more

You don't alternate with conception any more than you can with a coin flip.Yes it can come up heads or tails several times in a row.My gggrandfather had 10 boys and 2 girls.

Why do some people (mainly old people) get delirium when they have a UTI? How does that happen? Why?

Out of balance: You hate to think of it this way, but when we get old the body (and mind) can become very frail. Many older folk have shrinkage of brain tissue/ some elements of cognitive decline whether it is recognized or not. Add a UTI to that and u can really throw your patient for a loop. With younger folk u rarely see this unless very severe-like sepsis. Once UTI is well treated, expect patient to recover. ...Read more
