health Question & Answer


If the tubal ligation procedure (the medical name for having your tubes tied) was done where both ends of the cut Fallopian tubes were cauterized (burned) then no.How having your tubes tied? works is it prevents the egg from moving from your ovary to your uterus via the Fallopian tube. Or also prevents sperm from traveling up the other way to fertilize the egg. It's like having a permanent bridge is out? sign for the egg and sperm so they can't meet.If you want to get pregnant, then you should talk to your doctor about whether or not your tubal ligation would be reversible. Or maybe there?s another method they can suggest to get pregnant.Wishing you well....

Why is your period late?? I have to ask this: Have you had penis-in-vagina sexual intercourse? Is there any chance you could be pregnant?If not, the lateness could be attributed to how new your period is. Some say it takes 1 to 2 years for a woman's cycle to become more regular. If you're not having sex and are otherwise healthy, don't let it worry you too much. Your body is figuring out its new ?normal?.If this continues to concern you, you're always welcome to bring this up with your regular OB/GYN....

Lube.Use lube. Lubrication is a good thing and there's no shame in using it. Anyone who might shame you for using it is an uninformed jerk (besides, guys use it to beat off so why shouldn't we??)There are all kinds of lube out there for all kinds of acts/situations/preferences. Here's a comprehensive guide to what's what:http://www.thecsph.org/adultsexe...Some sex stores provide samples to try before you buy. Bonus tip, some of the lube like silicone lube can be used on bike chains too! #mundaneableThere are lots of contributing factors for why a person might need lube - diet, medications, aging, etc. Get used to using it before you should need it...

Thank you for the A2AYou didn't specify which day or days you had intercourse nor did you say if you used any form of birth control.You know what, Just assume yes, there is always a possibility to get pregnant if you are engaging in penis in vagina intercourse and you're not using a condom or any birth control.While the risk of pregnancy is highest when you ovulate, there is just no way to be certain you won't be that one time so get empowered to protect yourself.If you're having sex with a penis owner they literally could care less if you get pregnant. They're not the ones who potentially have to carry a baby for 9 months. You have to be responsible and protect you, your body, and your future.They're the ones who want to have sex with you so begin to set the rules and boundaries you will accept for sexual interactions.You want a condom Insist on it.They don't want to wear one? You can find someone who will.You don't want to have intercourse and would prefer to do something else? Speak up and say what you are and are not willing to do. You don't have to do what he says if you don't want to. Know this, you have more say than you probably realize.My advice? Go talk to your doctor about north control and research one that works for you. Learn how to use birth control efficiently and effectively. Perhaps combine a couple forms that make sense to protect yourself from both STIs and pregnancy. Educate yourself about the combinations that dont work, for example, the condom for a penis and the internal condom; Those two should not be used together.Again, if you're asking a question like this then you're engaging in risky behavior. Use the new knowledge and minimize the risk....

Thank you for the A2A.If you have a quality therapist/counselor who is skilled at helping couples with relationship issues, then my answer to your question is yes?. I look at it like a regular doctor's visit or annual check up.Even if you're a healthy couple? (and I'd be curious to hear how you define that), going to couples counseling proactively could definitely help you both to learn some skills for how to communicate with each other. You may not need to go every week but if you choose to, that's okay (You don't have to be going through some acute or pressing sh*t do that. But it can be expensive to go every week.)The biggest factor is if you as a couple agree to do this since there will likely be some work for both of you to do....

Honestly, regardless of whether or not this means you also have gonorrhea, take this opportunity to begin to get informed about your body and take your power back - Go to your doctor and get tested for STI's. You may have to specify which ones but just do all of them at once. So you know where you stand.I know the prospect of having an STI is scary but if it's gonorrhea (which is a bacterial infection) that can be treated with antibiotics.If you do have an STI, make sure to take the medication as directed by the doctor and take it until the end even if you begin to feel better. Why? Because if you don't complete the prescription as directed, then you could be contributing to making an antibiotic resistant strain of the bacteria (you do NOT want that).Living with a curable STI (and potentially spreading it) just because you refuse to get tested is an awful thing to do. Not only for the impact on other people you sleep with but because of the long term effects the STI could have on you, depending upon the STI.Once you get tested and know your status, then be vigilant about who you sleep with. Trust me; folks are going to want to sleep with you. The difference now is you have a tool to weed out the people who aren't worth your time or life. Tell them you want to see their current STI status (there are apps that help folks communicate this).If they don't know it, encourage them to get tested. If they try to make you feel bad for asking to see theirs, then THEY are the jerk, not you. It's just the jerks who will try to accuse you of thinking they're dirty? or try to convince you that it feels better to have sex without a condom and refuse to get tested. Sure, but until you know their report is clear? you don't have to have sex with them at all, condomless or not.Folks who are mature and understanding will get it and willingly, maybe even eagerly, comply. (And I can almost guarantee your dating pool will improve). You are expressing a boundary that protects your body, your peace of mind, and your sexual well being.Here's to a better dating pool screened of immature jerks....

Thank you for the A2A.I'm not sure I understand what you're trying to ask, so I'll attempt to answer.From a day to day perspective, while I menstruate, I handle my partner just like any other day. I don't experience severe PMS symptoms so our months are pretty routine.If you mean sexually, I am thankfully partnered with someone who doesn't mind if I have my period when we want to have sex. He is genuinely not bothered (and it's frickin AMAZING. Could not have a better partner for me!)....

The first response I have to this is: go see your physician/doctor. No need to ask us here. Heaven forbid this constant bleeding portends something much more serious or risky to your health.Please. Go talk to someone in person and have a proper and thorough examination by someone qualified to do so IRL. Quora is not the forum for this....

Sounds like an amazing routine. I'm curious; Do you do more forms of exercise on a routine basis as well? Are you single or partnered? Was this your goal or did it just happen? Do you limit yourself to once?I wish there were better records/research done that document health habits like this. Because the genitals are full of spongy bodies that fill with blood upon arousal, i'm curious about your heart health. I've personally found orgasms to be good for my heart (anecdotally, of course).Potential aide effects could be chafing (but you can use lube for that), boredom with the stimuli you use (but you can read some erotica or listen to erotica, or try to exercise your imagination to vary the input sensors), or building up the muscles in only one arm (but you can try to switch arms or use toys to help). All totally manageable.As long as you can keep any embarrassment or guilt pertaining to this habit out of the picture, as well as ignoring any judgment from others, I think you'll be fine....

Thank you for the A2A.Wondering if there's a cup size you have in mind for large breasts?? And another question for clarification is are you asking about natural or enhanced breasts?It can be, if you know what to feel for.Healthline: Medical information and health advice you can trust. says,Most commonly, a cancerous lump in the breast:is a hard mass is painless has irregular edges is immobile (doesn?t move when pushed) appears in the upper outer portion of your breast grows over time? But some can be soft, round lumps or could be painful. If it were me, I would ask my doctor at my next check up for advice or more information on lump detection.Related:I believe young folks should begin to learn how to perform their own chest exam starting at late puberty.This is NOT permission for a creepy adult to give hands on instruction. NO. Just no.Teens can follow instructions for their own checks. Explaining so they understand the value of taking care of their own bodies. Some breasts are more dense than others and I think there is a health benefit to learning the density of ones OWN breasts. This way they can know what their own normal is and be familiar over the life span to be able to detect any lumps that may develop later.Early detection is in your best interest. Treatments are available. Please get any suspected lump checked. You wouldn't want 6 months to go by and the lump to grow in size. Your doctor is there to help and they will not be embarrassed if you come in to talk about a lump. They'll want to help you get answers.Know this: Doing a breast/chest exam is NOT a sexual act. It is a health check. And they should be normalized. Ask your doctor for a breast self exam brochure or hang tag for the shower....
