535822 tn?1443980380 I guess they need a Men's Social forum.
Avatar n tn I am pleased to be through the scare, but now need to find out about living without the gland. Over the last 3 weeks I have found myself to be very weepy and emotional. I am also very tired during the day, but struggle to get a good nights rest. I have also woken up with the feeling of panic attacks. My guess is that my dosage is off. Right after the surgery they put me on the same dosage of thyroid replacement medicine (150 mcg) I was on prior to 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 Back when he was a graduate student, my friend, Dr Travis Saunders, was a ridiculously active runner and cyclist who primarily ate home-cooked meals made from whole ingredients. Despite living a healthier lifestyle than what I'd venture 99.9% of us are, he was told at his yearly physical to "watch his weight," as he was approaching a BMI of 25 (the start of the medical descriptor "overweight").
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.

Avatar m tn Are there any Men's Health Issues? What exactly is your complaint?
Avatar f tn You can move on. Molluscum contagiosum is a different subject than HIV. Ask in the STD or Men's Health forum.
Avatar n tn I have two children in college, both of whom are on financial aid. The local mental health clinic isn't equpped to provide regular therapy, and I can only be seen once a month for about 15 to 20 minutes. My insurance coverage is limited. Any suggestions as to where I might go to find affordable therapy? Thanks.
3149845 tn?1506631371 Female sperm swim more slowly, and live a lot longer. I really think men's body waste too much energy on being strong and fast, and too little energy on being long-lived.
Avatar m tn You never had an exposure. HIV is unable to reproduce outside its living host (unlike many bacteria or fungi, which may do so under suitable conditions), except under laboratory conditions; therefore, it does not spread or maintain infectiousness outside its host.
1122973 tn?1269735728 particularly him having sex with a 28-year-old woman who was a stripper at nights, had two kids, and several men's names tattooed on her. He told me they used a condom...but I know him not to like to use them, and he told me he had sex with her "a couple times." He said I have nothing to worry about since him and I had protected sex, which would be true had it not been for that momentary dip! I'm afraid. He told me he was tested in the past, before her.
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 f tn Who needs a lot of help. He had no structure at his moms house and was placed with us due to neglect and deplorable living conditions. With that being said. We are struggling with hygiene with him. He will lie about taking showers, putting deodorant on and brushing his teeth. I have received emails from his teachers expressing their concerns about his hygiene and remarks being made by his classmates. My husband isn't home alot due to his job which has him travel alot.
Avatar m tn We have a man here on the Men's Health forum who's user name is Solace21. He is so great about figuring out these kinds of problems. He probably would'nt mind if you sent him a message and asked if he would read your post. Hang in there, okay. You've only seen one Dr so far. Keep searching, even if it means seeing several Drs, until you find out what's going on. There has to be an answer to your problem.
148588 tn?1465782409 "During World War II, thousands of Americans lied about their age to enlist in the military. During the Iraq war, Daniel Torres lied about something else. "I didn't want to be just another Mexican living in the U.S. I wanted to say I'd done something for the country," said Torres. Torres' parents came to the U.S.
689860 tn?1238721632 If none of this works, in my opinion, the only thing you can do is find a doctor that is familiar with men's hormones (typically NOT what you'd think, an endocrinologist. from my experience, they are more in tune with diabetic needs, and not age related hormone modulation). What seems to work best to raise your hormone levels to where they need to be are WEEKLY injections of between .5 and 1 cc of testosterone.
Avatar m tn This is not a STD if your a virgin. Try posting in dermatology or men's health. I assume it is just a papule.
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 m tn I do not believe in the catch-all 'adrenal fatigue'. In addition to chasing up an endo for a STIM test, in your place I would see a Men's Sexual Health physician who day in day out treats men with issues like yours. He or she may be able to quickly and accurately identify what it is you have and how to cure or teat it. And send you for the right tests. I agree with Rumpled: do not take any meds or injections until your condition is first completely diagnosed.
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.
Avatar n tn Here is an article on hep c thru sex though it concentrates more on gay sex Hepatitis C Threat Through Sex Seen By: DUNCAN OSBORNE A growing body of evidence suggesting that hepatitis C can be transmitted sexually is prompting some AIDS activists to call for more research and for AIDS groups to talk to clients about the health threat. "People are starting to hear that message," said Spencer Cox, founder and executive director of the Medius Institute for Gay Men's Health.
86075 tn?1238118691 Knievel's death was confirmed by his granddaughter, Krysten Knievel. He had been in failing health for years, suffering from diabetes and pulmonary fibrosis, an incurable condition that scarred his lungs. Knievel had undergone a liver transplant in 1999 after nearly dying of hepatitis C, likely contracted through a blood transfusion after one of his bone-shattering spills.
Avatar n tn Also, she had already been working for a while that day and may have had other men's semen in her mouth. This really worries me because two days later I began having intense heart palpitations which leads me to believe that the drugs in her system may have made their way to my blood system - along with anything else she may have been carrying. Doctors diagnosed the palpitations as anxiety and to this day I cannot consume caffeine or they will reoccur.
Avatar n tn any further questions should be posted in a men's health or urology related forum here on medhelp.
Avatar f tn He has been hospitalized several times over the past 2 months due to health problems aggravated by his drinking. He has made several promises to get help and go into treatment, but just keeps drinking. I am devastated, and no matter what he says, I remain convinced this bender (his absolute worst ever) is triggered by me and our relationship. I rarely hear from him now, and when I do he is drunk, either lying about treatment or professing his love for me.
229411 tn?1189759425 The only places that do rapid tests is a Gay Men's clinic and the county public health. The other counties have public health but they dont offer rapid tests unless you are an IV drug user, gay or were sexually assaulted. I am half tempted to tell them I was sexually assaulted just to get the rapid test. I feel like the clerks will judge me when I buy the Home Access test. I know it sounds stupid but stuff like that really embarrasses me.
