Common Questions and Answers about Men's health and living


Avatar n tn You can also get reinfection, if you are living in a mold infested house. You have to keep your private parts dry and ensure that the clothes you wear are also clean and dry. Living in a moist environment can also lead to recurring fungal infection. In any case do consult the doctor till it gets cured fully.

Avatar n tn I can't believe I found this site. 2 and half years ago I looked frantically for information about living with out a thyroid. I had Hashimotos(sp) and 7 nodules that were growing, after needle asperation it was determined that they were suspicious. I was reluctant to have my thyroid removed even though I had lived through years of hell with it disfunctioning. I was so afraid of cancer and went forward with the surgery.
Avatar f tn Hi: Don't worry about posting to the "Men's Health" board. You would be surprised at how many women post here! Probably because their men are too shy to do so. As for what makes men happy, don't buy the stereotypes. Yes, we like the things that you mentioned. But, believe it or not, the relationships that we have with our friends, family, and especially the women in our lives are what makes us happy. What fun are those other things, if you have no one to share them with?
649848 tn?1534637300 Although weight is undeniably a risk factor for a host of medical comorbidities, especially at its extremes, it's not a guarantee that any of them will occur. And so the use of a scale to infer the presence or absence of health ignores the actual person standing on the scale. Similarly, scales don't measure lifestyle. There are scads of patients with obesity doing all of those good things—exercising regularly, getting enough sleep, not smoking, cooking with whole ingredients, etc.
Avatar m tn I am living in a foreign country (in asia) until later this year and have been here for the last 2years, the health service here is not as good as back home, and essentially, the doctor is out of ideas, I'm very worried and I'm desperate with have no idea what to do. Can anybody help, or help shed some light on what might be happening? Is the unprotected sex and this possibly just a coincidence? What else could it be if not an STD?
1033718 tn?1253068320 I drank high in protein shakes, Tangerines, Vitamin waters (Potassium versions) Bananas and also took a Men's Multi-Vitamin with Omega 3 (Mental Health-Clarity) every day, twice a day. It helped so much. I know cause I had gone through it before with out all that and it was a living nightmare, as was the addiction. It takes time for the energy guys/gals don't give up because of that reason. When it comes back you will have energy you NEVER realized you had before.
Avatar n tn It is one of the premier centers for HIV prevention and clinical centers, and for gay men's health in general. So you are in good hands. Most health experts believe that advising condoms for oral sex doesn't pass the 'laugh test', i.e. too many people would blow off such advice (no pun intended), with further risk that people would also disregard condoms for vaginal and anal sex.
645800 tn?1466864555 Next I am seen by a nurse and he has me stand up to take my vitals ( probably because the BP was high) and it was then 165/96, pulse 54, and o2 95%. I then tell him what is going one and I am classified as non-emergency and told to wait in the waiting area. As I am waiting I wonder about why my 02 level dropped to 95% while standing. After 5 1/2 hours they finally take me back to an exam room to be seen by a doctor.
Avatar n tn I am sorry for your Dx. I am a female but also now hypo.Since the beginning of my illness everything I read regarding the disease, when I stumbled across the stats of men getting it, I read through it. Dx is rare. specially on sub clinical Hypo or Hyper thyroidism in men. I believe this b/c men are less likely to see a doctor when they have symptoms. and if they do go and get Dx'd - most do not have the patience and stay on top of it.
Avatar f tn Aside from all this its the recent one that has been really really bothering me more then I can explain I read something about women turning gay that are married ect a work friend then jokingly made a comment messing saying I was gay I am now transfixed on the thoughts that maybe I am gay even though I have always been attracted to men and my dream is to marry a man these gay thoughts are making me physically sick and my anxiety has hit the roof I am very feminine and have very old fashioned v
Avatar n tn If you're taking this pill just to loose weight, and not for a health reason, you should stop taking it, and see that if you keep eating healthy, and walking, you'll still loose! And BTW, taking this pill 10 mins before a meal to help with your appetite is crazy! All diet pills tell you to take it 30min.s before each meal.. b/c it takes 30 min.s to start working...10 min.s? that pill isn't doing anything for you when you're eating!
Avatar n tn I tried Lamictal but it made me literally stupid and gave me horrible acne, then I tried Depakote but it made me like the living dead I was miserable and tired and I gained 20lbs and started losing my hair (i didnt appreciate that), currently I'm on trileptal which is great because my hair came back and my depakote weight went away but i dont think it is getting rid of my seizures so its basically useless, so now I am slowly adding topamax to my regime!
Avatar n tn *Find a free STD clinic in your zip code and get both you and your partner tested. Call the health department and they can give you information. *Consider the fact that you may be allergic to latex condoms. Swith to animal skin or non-latex condoms. Keep in mind that animal skin condoms are more porous than latex and can transmit certain stds. In conclusion, sex is not a bad thing, it's enjoyable, makes us feel good and the close contact makes us feel 'human'.
Avatar m tn A Harvard study published in the journal Human Reproduction found a strong association between men's consumption of soy foods and decreased sperm counts. In the study, men who ate a variety of soy-containing foods and then underwent semen analysis had poor sperm quality. Animal studies also found connections between males chowing down on soy and erectile dysfunction.
202436 tn?1326477933 FGM is most commonly carried out on girls between infancy and age 15. An estimated 100 to 140 million girls and women worldwide are currently living with the consequences of FGM. That's not ok at all.
Avatar m tn I would also recommend posting on the men's health and sexual health community forums and also the erection concerns expert forum. I would advise trying the expert forum first. If you can't keep yourself safe then I think that you should visit your local hospital.
Avatar m tn I think this would be a very good time to schedule a complete work up to find out exactly why your so fatigued and experiencing brain fog. Set up an appointment and get to the bottom of your health issues.
Avatar n tn I took Geritol for about 3 weeks as well as my husband, then i thought i was pregnant and switched over to prenatal pills, and sure enough i was! Im currently 7 weeks pregnant. Good luck to you!! My pregnancy isnt going so well though(not geritol related) but hopefully yours will be better!!
Avatar f tn You can sue him for Alimony, and Child Support, and all the debts incurred in getting you mental health counseling. Get a job that will help you to save up money to make a move, if this becomes your choice. Then get your own place. As for your daughter. She is not guilty of your husband's behavior. She did not cause it and she doesn't deserve to have to pay that price, just because she is his baby. She is every bit your daughter too, and she needs her Mama more than you can imagine.
1963551 tn?1325604592 And what if he gets out with a totally new pair of glasses on, gets involved with a new way of life living the 12 steps once and for all and experiencing all the promises that DO happen by working the steps. What if he finds a new freedom and a new happiness, comprehends the word serenity and finds peace. What if his feelings of uselessness and self-pity disappear.....C-mon guys, re-read the bottom of page 83 top of 84 in the BigBook. Has no body experienced these things?
Avatar n tn Hi all. New to this. I am a 44 year old woman who is physically fit (gym 5 days a week) and eats pretty well. Approx 5 weeks ago I developed veins showing on both hands. They have not gone away and infact they are bulging most times, and I can "feel them". They have increased and I can see some starting to climb up my forearm now. Before this, my veins barely ever showed.
193905 tn?1325400789 I understand completely what you mean about the tapering but your health comes first here - and if that means tapering, then I think you should seriously consider that. Your goal here is to become healthy again not make things worse by trying to do something in a way that isn't reasonable given your history. Please be careful and get that Dr. on board with your decision to quit (a very wise decision by the way). Good luck to you!
Avatar n tn The fact that you cannot control or stop it is the worst i've been given tablets but it happens so fast it's too late and any tablets i take don't act fast enough and as if being at work when this happens is not bad enough what's awful as well is if your out or at someones house i have to make a mad rush for it or just deal with severe humiliation the worst was when trying to get home quickly and with noone i knew living close by and once the cramps set in i had no control and soiled myself in
Avatar n tn WOW! 22 pounds is a lot of weight to loose in such a short period of time! Good for you!!! I hope that I am able to loose 22 pounds in the next couple of months. Are you following a diet plan and working out? I have not started working out yet....maybe one day...I don't have a diet plan either I am just trying to make good choices and watch my portions. This way I know that when I stop the shots and medicine I won't gain it all back. Lets hope!!! Best of Luck to you...

Avatar n tn Doing it behind your husband's back is disrespectful -- would you not agree with this ? wunbanorm --- maybe we should raid the men's health forum and try to recruit them to come over here ? LOL ! !
Avatar f tn They can perform CPR if symptoms worsen and you fall unconscious.   Published on February 7, 2012. Eirish Sison is a health writer and science enthusiast living in San Francisco.   Reviewed by Joseph Sclafani, MD on April 10, 2015.
Avatar m tn She put condom on my dick and mastrubated and she was also nude. after that she removed the condom and she started fingering vigouriously and i saw she had full secretion in her hand and in a fraction of seconds, she touched ny dick all over including the head and she started applying her genetial secretion all over my dick for a minute. then i was taken aback and wore my dress and came home.
Avatar n tn This is really illuminating to find so many others suffering almost identical symptoms. I am a 58 year old male pretty fit and in generally good health. My problem is the intense tearing pain I get in my right knee when I bend at a certain angle and at a certain time. I can't define either because it's so uncertain. I can do situps now with no problem. We all seem to refer to this pain as a tearing pain as it feels like a wound that has been stiched together is tearing apart.
