Depends: Forced sex at any age can damage the organs of child bearing. The degree would reflect the damage of the assault &/or diseases passed during the event that could scar the system. If your friend was not hospitalized after the event, it is likely the organs can still work. An obgyn can do some testing & an exam to help sort this issue out. Encourage your friend to get more information. ...Read more

My daughter is a yr old and was born premature her doctor put her on pediasure how many cans am i suppose to give her and she don't have any teeth ?

Premature: thr doctor probably checked her growth charts and corrected it according to her age. If your baby is not on the growth charts, he usually add pediasure to add more calories in addition to baby food to help with her intake. A good nutrition consultation is very helpful to do the pediasure according to her weight. Good luck ...Read more

What do you suggest if my mother in law has given my 5month old baby chocolate. am I being unreasonable to think this was just wrong?

What do you suggest if my mother in law has given my 5month old baby chocolate. am I being unreasonable to think this was just wrong?

Offer her facts: We try to avoid certain foods while the kids intestine is still maturing so they don't develop allergies to that product. While she may look on chocolate as a "treat" for baby, that projects an adult "savory"factor on an infant with no such food craving and could cause baby to be allergic to it when s/he gets older.Good intentions does not mean good idea.(and it's your baby) ...Read more

There : There is nothing unhealthy about your breast milk for your 2 yr. Old. I would recommend that you offer it in a cup though, as there is no reason to encourage your toddler to believe he should be treated the same as a newborn. Some regression in behavior is common when a new baby arrives, but it should not be encouraged. Instead shower your 2 yr. Old with praise for being the very important "big brother.". ...Read more

Hi can a woman have gonorrhea for months and not know do it when me and my wife got married and she was pregnant with my child she had gonrrhea ?

Gonorrhea: Yes, gonorrhea can persist for several months, especially in women, more rarely in men. You both should have been treated, usually with a shot of ceftriaxone plus treatment by mouth with either azithromycin (single dose) or doxycycline (for a week). No sex until both of you have completed treatment. Also test for other common STDs like chlamydia, syphilis, and HIV. Good luck to all 3 of you! ...Read more
