• Can I rescue my fudge?

    I made some fudge but I didn't heat it enough so it won't set. However it is delicious- can I put it back in the pan and boil it again? I made it about 8 hours ago.

  • How long between a general anaesthetic and having teeth out?

    I'm having an operation under a general anaesthetic, which clashes with a dental appointment to have teeth out. I need to rebook with the dentist- how long should I leave between them?

  • My cat is doing sex moves on my boyfriend...?

    I've got a neutered tom who's about 9. He's grown to really like my partner in the year we've been together. He often stands on his lap and paddles his paws, but he's recently started thrusting his hips as well. Thankfully he hasn't 'revealed' himself. Apart from being very amusing is there any point to it?

  • My period never ends- thinking about surgery?

    I'm 34, and in the twenty-plus years I've been menstruating they've never been regular. I used to go months and months without a period (which I was fine with), but for the last five or so years I've been bleeding nearly non stop.

    I'm 34, and in the twenty-plus years I've been menstruating they've never been regular. I used to go months and months without a period (which I was fine with), but for the last five or so years I've been bleeding nearly non stop. I've seen various GPs and none of them seem to be interested in helping me with this- I've tried various contraceptive pills, the implant, the coil and the injection- but every time I see a doctor they tell me to 'bear with it' for a little longer in case it stops on its own. I'm just so tired of it. I go through tampons at the rate of about one an hour, I have to get up in the night to change, I have to put towels everywhere I sit, and I'm not able to make love with my partner. It's also hard to work when you have to disappear to the toilet so frequently. I've finally got a referral to a specialist for a more permanent solution. For genetic reasons I don't want to bear my own children so I don't care if it affects my fertility. Does anyone have experience of surgery to stop periods? What can I expect?

  • Just moved in with my partner- financial advice?

    I've moved into my boyfriend's house, which he has a mortgage on. He has a good job and is paying the bills- I'm unemployed and buy the food. I contribute as much as I can but I'm very grateful that he takes care of me- I am starting a job soon but this is how it is at the moment. Having had a grasping harpy of a girlfriend before, he understandably wants to protect himself if we split up. So- Considering that we're not married, would I have to right to claim anything from him? And if so, are there any legal measures I can take to reassure him that I wouldn't try to get money from him if we parted ways? I know it's an odd query but he's worried about this, and since I have absolutely no interest in his assets it seems sensible to pin this all down now.

  • Mooncup/menstrual cup help?

    I have very heavy periods and I bought a menstrual cup to try and cope. However I can't get it in! I've tried different angles and positions but I just can't reach. Are there any products/techniques that could help? Maybe some sort of applicator?

  • Can my landlord demand extra money- in the UK?

    I recently moved out of a flat I'd been renting. I expected to lose some of the deposit but that landlord has claimed that I caused £1000 of damage, and that I owe him additional money. So- Is he entitled to ask me for extra money and He's threatening to sue me. If he can do this, how long after moving out does he have to wait?

  • Dodgy ears?

    I have weird hearing and I want to know if it's a recognised thing or has a name or even if it's just me.

    I have weird hearing and I want to know if it's a recognised thing or has a name or even if it's just me. I can hear individual things fine, but more than one source of sound makes it difficult to hear either. It's not really a question of volume. For example, if I'm standing in the kitchen talking to someone and then put the kettle on, I then can't understand what that person is saying even though the kettle isn't loud. I can sometimes tune in but it's a real effort and I generally then just move closer to the person. Is it my ears or my brain? Please tell me I'm not alone...

  • Why is a cat's fur sparse in front of its ears?

    I've noticed that cats- all the cats I've met at any rate- have a patch in front of their ears where the hair is a lot less dense than on the rest of their head. Does it help them hear? Does it protect the ear in some way?
