Avatar f tn Share the stories you have heard about gender myths or even gender facts. Well im watching deliver me right now and it said that longer and complicated labors mean a boy. And most c-sections is due to boys. They said bcuz they have larger heads than girls lol. My first child i was in labor 28 hours, they gave me oxytocin, they broke my water etc. it was a long 28 hours and what do you no, a BOY lol.
Avatar f tn Sounds like those old myths about masturbation are being recycled about fingering. (It used to be that people would say it causes hairy palms, physical weakness or mental illness. None of that is true; the stories were caused by guilt, lack of information, and someone trying to shame kids into not doing it.) If those old myths have now popped up about fingering, it's probably for the same reasons -- guilt, lack of information, someone trying to shame kids into not doing it.

Avatar f tn You can begin to help yourself by getting educated about HIV/AIDS. I would urge you to refrain from any form of sexual encounter until you understand how HIV is transmitted. Since you obviously don't know what does and what doesn't constitute safe sex, you should probably abstain until you learn how to protect both you and your partner. I'm sorry if this sounds harsh, but people KNOW there is a risk out there and yet they just keep on having sex and then freaking out.
Avatar f tn Besides the heavy-metal contamination issue, make sure that the friend who smoked the fish knows what he is doing regarding smoking it completely, i.e., not leaving it raw in the middle and then failing to refrigerate it. Raw fresh fish is not unhealthy (absent the heavy-metal issue), but raw fish that has sat out for days in the cupboard because someone thought it was completely smoked is not anything I'd eat, preggers or not.
187316 tn?1386356682 So, I've been looking up a lot of info on pregnancy and I keep running into random facts that are super interesting! So I thought that we could all post interesting facts as we learn them! I'll go first! Finger prints are created while the baby is in the womb by moving its hands through the amniotic fluid. No two people will ever move their hands in the exact same pattern the whole time which is why no two people have the same finger prints. Even identical twins!

Avatar m tn Dear Volunteers, As I have shared about my case of unprotected vaginal sex with CSW few days back today while speaking with my doc I came to know that few people have died of AIDS in my location with in 2 years of them contracting with virus. Means contracting with virus leads to death . I don't know how much he is right as per my knowledge hiv if left untreated then it leads to AIDS and that to after a longer period please help me with your valuable advice on the same.
Avatar m tn Has anyone heard of this hiv like virus in china? If so please share FACTS with me! I'm hoping it's bs.!!
Avatar m tn Hello. It's time you made your OWN decisions--not based on your friends or what you've heard, but on accurate data. You need facts, not misinformation. Everything you've heard is based on myths, not facts. And your bladder size, etc. are irrelevant. Here's some information for you. Read it and relax. First, there's no scientific evidence that there is any such thing as “over-masturbation” just as there’s no such thing as “under-masturbation.

Avatar f tn Facts vs. Myths article > > Common ulcer symptoms include: A burning, aching pain-or a pain that feels like hunger-between the navel and the breastbone. The pain sometimes extends to the back. Belly pain that can last from a few minutes to a few hours and usually goes away for a while after taking an antacid or acid reducer. Weeks of pain that comes and goes and may alternate with pain-free periods. Loss of appetite and weight loss. Bloating or nausea after eating.
Avatar m tn During these years, there will be no prominent symptoms of HIV/AIDS. One of the dangerous facts about AIDS is that although, during asymptomatic stage, there will be no symptoms, the virus can still be transferred from the infected person.
1154937 tn?1262238376 Having read that I assume it is only to be careful and to preven from Hepatitis. Also I remember someone telling me in this forum that most HIV facts are myths like sharing razors because the HIV virus dies within seconds to minutes and therefore there is no risk.
Avatar f tn Can someone help me? When searching the web, wedmd and other sites regarding HIV. It states you can contract HIV or AIDS thru oral sex. I've been reading thru all the post from the experts on this site and they say no. Can someone please tell me real facts?? Thank you so much...
Avatar n tn Hello. I'm sorry that you've received such negative and incorrect information. Let me replace those myths with facts for you. You can find so much misinformation on the Internet because there’s no quality control. “Over-masturbation” sites are written by people who want to sell you something, for example, herbal remedies.
