Ask Us???

Your questions have been answered!

1. Can you get STDs from giving oral sex?

Yes, absolutely! If you're having unprotected oral sex you're at risk for becoming infected with any sexually transmitted infection, including HIV, Herpes, HPV, Gonorrhea, Syphilis, Hepatitis B, and Chlamydia. Using male or female condoms and dental dams definitely lowers your risk, but they don't fully protect you against all of the STDs. For example, HPV is spread by direct skin to skin contact. If you perform oral sex on your sexual partner(s), tell your health care provider. He/she may want to discuss any additional screenings you might need. Ask your health care provider about getting vaccinated against HPV and Hepatitis A and B.

2. How do I know if I'm a virgin?

It's really not too complicated. You're a virgin if you've never had vaginal intercourse with a partner. It doesn't matter if you've used tampons, masturbated, or if you've had an injury to your vulva. You're still a virgin until you have vaginal intercourse with someone else.

3. I exercise and eat pretty healthy, but I'm still overweight. Why?

I exercise 3 times a week for an hour and eat a pretty healthy diet, but I'm still overweight. Why can't I lose weight?

Losing weight is really hard for many people. Since there are lots of reasons why people who have healthy habits can't lose weight, it's best to talk with a health care provider such as a doctor or dietitian about your situation, If a detox health plan or cleansing either by colon or orally . Your health care provider may recommend that you make some changes in your habits (such as eating smaller portions or exercising more often). Your health care provider may also tell you that your weight is perfectly healthy for you and that you don't actually need to lose weight.

4.What's the best cure for severe cramps during my period?

If you're having menstrual cramps, talk with your parents or health care provider about your options. If your menstrual cramps are painful, you may think about taking some type of the over-the-counter medication for 1 to 2 days. These medications are called "anti-prostaglandins". They help relieve the discomfort, make your flow lighter, and cause your uterus to cramp less. Look for over-the-counter medications that contain ibuprofen or naproxen sodium. Take this medicine when you first start to feel uncomfortable, and continue taking it every 4-6 hours or as recommended by your health care provider. Since this kind of medicine can upset your stomach, you should take it with food. Make sure you read the label to see how much and how often you should take the medication. You should not take these products if you are allergic to aspirin-like medicine or have stomach problems. It's important not to take more medicine than is recommended or prescribed.
Natural remedies such as a microwavable warm pack or a heating pad placed on your abdomen (lower belly) may help too, just make sure it's not too hot. Soaking in a warm bath may also relieve uncomfortable cramps. Some teens find that increasing their physical activity helps; others find that resting quietly for short periods of time helps.
If your menstrual cramps are not relieved by over-the-counter medicine, make an appointment to see your health care provider. Use a calendar to keep track of your period and symptoms and bring it with you to your next medical appointment. This can help your health care provider figure out the best treatment choices for you.

5. I have a hair problem on my nipple area, what should I do to solve my problem?

Some girls have hair around their nipples. This is completely normal. If the hair bothers you, it's best to cut it with small scissors. Plucking or shaving the hair can cause infection.

6. How can I tighten my breasts?

Breasts come in shapes and sizes, and heredity is the biggest factor that determines the size, shape, and firmness of a woman's breasts. There are no creams or lotions that can tighten breast tissue, and there's no specific evidence that proves that a certain type of exercise firms sagging breasts. That being said, large breasts can cause backaches, so wearing a well-fitting bra can provide support that may help. Talk to your health care provider for other suggestions.

7. Are you still a virgin if you masturbate?

Yes, you are still a virgin until you have vaginal intercourse with a partner. For the record, masturbation is normal and is a natural way to learn about your body and find out what feels sexually satisfying.

8. I had sex with my girlfriend while she was on her period, will I be affected with any diseases?

You will likely be fine if you and your partner practiced safe sex. But remember, anytime you have sex you may be exposed to STIs. If you used a male or female condom, your risks are less, but still there.
Safe sex is important ALL the time. When a girl is on her period, sexually transmitted infections such as HIV and Hepatitis (that are carried in the blood) are spread especially easily through contact with infected blood.
Also, when a girl is menstruating, she has a higher risk for developing pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) from gonorrhea or Chlamydia infections.
One last thing... Don't take for granted that your girlfriend won't get pregnant while she is on her period. It's still possible, unless she is using birth control pills or another effective hormone method.
Always practice safe sex!

9. Are stretch marks on the hips, thighs, and breasts normal?

Stretch marks on the hips, thighs, and breasts are very common and completely normal. They often appear during puberty, pregnancy, or with rapid weight gain or weightloss. Stretch marks will usually fade over time and will usually match your normal skin color usually within 1 to 2 years.

10. What should I do to increase my energy levels?

Here are some smart tips that will help to improve your energy levels:
  • Eat three nutritious meals a day and 2-3 healthy snacks in between: Food is your body's fuel, so just like a car, you body needs good food to make it run efficiently!
  • Start the day with breakfast: Be sure to eat protein with whole grains.
  • Bring a health lunch/snacks to school/work: Use a portable cold pack and bring a yogurt, string cheese, or meat (such as grilled chicken).
  • Drink water: Have 8-10 glasses each day.
  • Decrease stress: Learn ways to manage and avoid stress whenever possible. Find out about exercising, yoga, and meditation, and you can also write in a journal.
If your symptoms don't lessen in 2 weeks or more, you should make an appointment with your doctors to make sure you don't have a medical reason for feeling tired.
