Brain freeze: The sudden temp change stimulates nerves on the roof of your mouth to dilate blood vessels, in an attempt to bring warm blood to the area, but also triggers pain receptors, which release pain-causing prostaglandins, increase sensitivity to further pain, and produce inflammation while sending signals through the trigeminal nerve, and the brain interprets the pain signal as coming from the forehead. ...Read more

I'm 29 Yr married women, missed my period by 2 days. Period date was 16th Feb. Suffering from cold since 3 days. Should I get a pregency test now. ?
Can wait a few days: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more
