3 Things Every Woman Should Do After Sex

Image
You know what to do before and during—here are a few non-negotiables once the action has ended.

1. Use the Bathroom—but Only If You Actually Have to Pee
You've probably heard that heading to the toilet pronto after sex will help you avoid a urinary tract infection (UTI) because it rinses away E. coli bacteria that may have moved toward your urethra during sex. (One in five women deal with the uncomfortable infection at least once in their lives, according to the National Kidney Foundation, and for some women, they can become a recurrent problem.) But peeing ASAP as protection is largely a myth, says Lauren Streicher, MD, a clinical associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine and the author of
Sex Rx: Hormones, Health, and Your Best Sex Ever, who notes that no large studies have shown it to have protective benefits. So if you don't need to pee right after intercourse, don't rush to the bathroom—waiting un…

why women might develop cervical cancer if they started sex at early age

why women might develop cancer if they started sex at early age


"ladies who have sex of their teens are at more risk of developing cervical cancer,” the daily Mail reported. It said a study into why poorer women have a higher risk of the disease found that they tended to have sex 4 years earlier than more affluent women.

This study investigated how socioeconomic status affects the risk of HPV infection, a sexually transmitted virus that causes almost all cases of cervical cancer. It was not aimed at determining whether the age that a girl first has sex is a chance factor for cervical cancer. however, based on what is already known, it makes sense that the sooner a woman first has sex, the greater her risk of being infected by HPV, and for a longer period of time.

This research was carried out mainly in developing countries that did not have widespread high-quality screening programmes in place, and before cervical cancer vaccination was available. therefore, these results won…

Leukoplakia: Causes, Symptoms & Diagnosis 

What is leukoplakia


Leukoplakia is a condition in which thick, white patches form on your tongue and the lining of your mouth. Smoking is the most common cause. but other irritants can result in this condition as well.

slight leukoplakia is usually harmless and often goes away on its own. more serious cases may be linked to oral cancer. these must be treated promptly.

regular dental care can help prevent recurrences.

Leukoplakia most often occurs on your tongue. it can also appear inside your cheeks and on your gums. The patches may take several weeks to de…

Can I Get HIV from Kissing - am worried this because

Can I Get HIV from Kissing



let's start by pointing out the obvious: kissing is considered among the most ineffective means of transmitting HIV from one man or woman to every other, with risk considered anywhere from negligible to non-existent.

to date, there has really been only one, rather dubious case where an HIV-negative woman become said to have infected by her HIV-positive male partner, who reportedly deep kissed her on a regular basis over a -year period, regularly with bleeding gums.

What makes the case—which was reported to the centers for disease control and Prevention (CDC) back in 1996—highly suspect is the fact that the couple also reported condom breakage during the same period, reported that they had used a nonoxynol-nine lubricant (now known to increase HIV risk in women), and reported having vaginal intercourse and oral sex with out condoms during the span of their dating.

while the CDC suggested that they suspected HIV transmission was "possibly associ…

could you get HIV from mosquito bite- am worried of this???

could you get HIV from mosquito bite- am worried of this??

From the very start of the HIV epidemic, there have been issues about the transmission of HIV thru biting and bloodsucking insects, which include mosquitoes. It turned into a herbal challenge given that many illnesses, consisting of malaria and Zika fever, are comfortably transmitted via insect bite.

but, this isn't the case with HIV. Epidemiological studies carried out by the facilities for disorder control and infection in Atlanta have proven no evidence of HIV transmission thru mosquitoes or every other bugs, even in international locations with extraordinarily high fees of HIV and uncontrolled mosquito infestations.
the lack of such outbreaks supports the conclusion that HIV can not be transmitted by way of the insects.

From a biological perspective, mosquito
 bites do not result in the blood-to-blood transmission (which might be considered the route of infection for a bloodborne virus like HIV). rather, the insect in…

Flu/ influenza cases prompt visit restriction at Wrexham hospital

Visiting at one hospital has been cut as health boards across Wales have reported increases in people with flu.

Officials said they wanted to reduce the risk of spreading the illness at Wrexham Maelor Hospital so they had cut all but essential visits to the site. Cardiff and Vale health board said it had also seen an increase in patients with flu and respiratory conditions. Public Health Wales said there had been a rise in cases with several strains, including one that affected Australia. The latest published health report for the week before Christmas showed a Wales-wide increase for flu to 13.7 consultations per 100,000. This compared with 8.7 consultations per 100,000 in the week before, and pushes the number of cases above levels normally expected for this time of year. Winter flu: Should we expect the worst?

Why Women Lose Interest in Sex

Why Women Lose Interest in Sex Living with libido loco? For a growing number of women, declining hormones, job stress, relationship issues, and other problems are taking their toll in the bedroom. Loss of sexual desire, known in medical terms as hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD), is the most common form of sexual dysfunction among women of all ages. A recent study showed that nearly one-third of women aged 18 to 59 suffer from a lost interest in sex, and it's not all in their heads. Unlike men's main sexual complaint, erectile dysfunction, women's biggest sexual problem is caused by a combination of both mental and physical factors, which aren't likely to be cured by merely popping a pill. "Women's sexuality tends to be multifaceted and fairly complicated," says sex psychologist Sheryl Kingsberg, PhD. "Although we would love to simplify it so we could have the one-two or even a one-punch treatment, it doesn't tend to work that way.…
