• I get a yeast infection every time I have sex!!?

    Best answer: This is beyond what most of us can help you with. He should definitely shower beforehand with a normal soap as antibacterial is not good for any of us and doesn't kill yeast (only makes yeast grow better as it kills off healthy bacteria).

    Best answer: This is beyond what most of us can help you with. He should definitely shower beforehand with a normal soap as antibacterial is not good for any of us and doesn't kill yeast (only makes yeast grow better as it kills off healthy bacteria). No tub baths for you, no douches, and you should shower and clean yourself after. I don't think peeing after is even close to enough as yeast infections can be all over your genital areas, not just internally. In fact your urethra where the pee comes out is the least likely place to need cleaning out in this situation.

    Eat lots of yogurt that's as plain as you can stand and wear comfortable 100% cotton underwear (no thongs). Things need to breathe. A humid environment urged on by bad underwear that is microfiber or polyester is a great place to grow yeast.

    Write down all of the times you've had an infection and take that to your nurse practitioner, primary care doc, or gynecologist. I'd recommend a gyno. You may not be getting enough full recovery from an OTC treatment, and this person is most likely to know of any odds and ends. You definitely should try a prescription oral yeast infection medication.

    Another thing to consider: this may not be a yeast infection. There are other things.... ):

    Sorry and hope it all gets better for you soon.

    Hormonal Contraceptives Increase Breast Cancer Risk, New Study Finds A study published last week in The New England Journal of Medicine has found that hormonal contraceptives, including oral contraceptive pills and hormone-releasing IUDs, significantly increase women’s risk for breast cancer. The study found that women who used hormonal contraception had a 20 percent elevated risk[1] for breast cancer compared to women who had never used a hormonal method. The risk was also found to be time-dependent, increasing the longer the hormonal drugs were used. Women who used hormonal contraception longer than 10 years saw their risk for breast cancer increase by almost 40 percent.[2] While the study showed that the breast cancer risk decreased after stopping hormonal contraception, for women who used a hormonal method for five years or more, the effects of drug lingered. Women who used hormonal contraception longer than five years saw a significant elevated risk for breast cancer even five years or more after discontinuation.

  • Does this sound like breast cancer?

    Best answer: No.

    Best answer: If your at all concerned, just take the plan B. It's very safe to take as long as you don't take it all the time. The side effects aren't that bad and its only like $50 at walmart.

    I took it once before and it made me have nausea and bad PMS the next month. Make sure you take it with a meal and try to take it right before bed, that way you won't have to experience symptoms if any.

  • Am I going have a small body and breasts for the rest of my life? Female?

    Best answer: First off, all female breasts are different. No one has the same size, shape or color. So whatever you have is unique to your body. At 18, it is highly likely that you are done with puberty and breast development. However, your breasts will change at different stages of your life due to hormonal changes and... show more
    Best answer: First off, all female breasts are different. No one has the same size, shape or color. So whatever you have is unique to your body. At 18, it is highly likely that you are done with puberty and breast development. However, your breasts will change at different stages of your life due to hormonal changes and normal aging. What you are describing is normal for you. Outside of surgery, there is nothing that will radically change the size of your breasts (unless you gain a lot of weight which isn't a good idea). There's nothing wrong with being petite at all. You will always look good in most clothing (even clothing that girls with bigger breasts cannot wear), plenty of men will be attracted to you and you can always wear a pair of high heels to look taller. There is nothing about being petite that will hold you back from living a normal, happy life. You need to start thinking about working on the person inside instead of worrying about your physical appearance. Life can and does get better when you let go of the superficial things.

  • I want to get rid of my virginity?

    I'm 23 and still a virgin. However I don't want to have sex with anyone. I just want to take a dildo and basically deflower myself.

    I'm 23 and still a virgin. However I don't want to have sex with anyone. I just want to take a dildo and basically deflower myself. The only reason why I want to do that is because I feel like the entire idea of virginity is messed up and it's especially a messed up double standard. I'm not saying I want to have sex with every guy I see, but I wouldn't mind enjoying sex one day in my life and it doesn't need to be my husband because I'm against marriage. I was raised really old fashioned and it made me feel like a prisoner my entire life. I would rather be a guy than a girl just because guys don't have it as hard. I'm especially a feminist and no I don't hate guys. I had a fight with my dad two days ago and we were talking about double standards. The things he was still trying to enforce in my brain was baffling. My dad is a misogynist and the things he tells me, "You must wait till marriage because only guys can fool around but girls can't because if they do they are sluts." Makes me feel like a slave. Makes me feel like I need to be perfect when I don't want to be perfect in the first place. The idea of virginity is bullshit. If you are religious and you are going to tell me to wait till marriage because that's what "good girls do" please dont reply to this post.
