How can a woman become sterile after having a child before?

How can a woman become sterile after having a child before?

MANY reasons: Female fertility is dependent on a fully functioning 'female' system. Hormone changes may cause lack of periods & no ovulation (e.g. Pcos, early menopause). Also any obstruction of the fallopian tubes may cause sterility (usual cause= untreated std's e.g. Chlamydia). Fibroid tumors may develop and hinder implantation.
A woman may develop sperm anti-bodies (yes, it's possible). Other causes, too. ...Read more

I am a married man to a great woman and we have a child. However I have this need to tickle and be tickled by men. Is this unhealthy?

Tickling fetish: Although you didn't state it- I would assume that you are referring to being sexually stimulated by tickling of feet or other parts of the body by males.

My ex boyfriend who had a child with another woman committed suicide by hanging himself. He didn't leave any letter saying goodbye or anything.?

Loss through suicide: Losing someone in this manner is very painful, and I'm sorry for your loss. Each person involved has his/her own experiences with the deceased; any conflict about these can surface anew. Suicide is a final pathway of great suffering. When in such a dark place it's common for the person to be extremely self-absorbed -- often too much to write a note to anyone. Grief counselors may help. ...Read more
