How Much “Self Love” Is Too Much In A Given Day Or Week?

For both men and women, “self love” is a healthy thing to do. However, there are some limitations. Naturally, we get how it’s one of the medical questions people are afraid to ask about. On top of this, answers might be different depending on the person you ask. They can even differ by the doctor you ask. The doctors with the best knowledge on this subject are going to be Urologists, although Nephrologists might also know a good bit about it too.

For men, having “a release” is important because it can cause potential pain below and you might even have mood issues. This is why it is recommended for them to have “self love” or “release” at least 3 times a week. Once a day is also okay but not recommended. For women, there’s less “medical” need to do it. Yet due to the tremendous aid that it can offer for mood and even with menstrual pain, 3 times a week is also the recommendation. It’s just not recommended for either to “enjoy themselves” twice a day or anything.

How Do I Stop Feeling Sad Or Anxious?

Like depression, this area is certainly one that can be tough to discuss. Some might say that depression and sadness are the same things, but this is not true. Sadness is an emotion, which can be triggered by several potential issues. Depression might cause it, but it could be other stuff too. Meanwhile, Anxiety is completely different from both. It tends to involve an inner fear or worry a person has about something.

Some people have anxiety disorders, which sometimes require medication and/or therapy to control. Yes, both anxiety and sadness can be hard to discuss but doctors usually know how to help. If they cannot, they will know the right people for you to speak with. It is best to speak with a psychologist or therapist about these issues as they are completely mental. Therefore, speaking with the people who know that world best would be smart to do. Due to the wide variety of reasons for these issues, it would be far too difficult for us to give you specific ways to help either one here.

Why Am I Getting So Many Headaches Or Migraines?

We’re not sure why this is one of the most common medical questions people are afraid to ask about. However, it might mostly just come down to the fact that some do not feel it is relevant. Headaches can come from a variety of issues. One is high blood pressure, which tends to make you feel like your head is going to pop off. Yet most headaches are caused by issues with the neck. Therefore, if you fix the neck problem…you fix the headache. This is why anti-inflammatory drugs can help them.

Your head is not being helped with the inflammatory drugs, it’s the neck. Migraines, however, will differ. They have a variety of causes. Usually, they are brought on by sensory issues, stress, as well as things like alcohol. Both can be treated by proper chiropractic neck adjustments. However, migraines might differ a bit. The reason for this is that they are brought on by other factors beyond musculoskeletal usually. Therefore, you’ll want to eliminate those issues too.

Why Are My Breasts Different Sizes?

Sorry guys, this particular section is mostly about the ladies. We totally get why this is one of the most obvious medical questions people are afraid to ask about. It’s awkward to ask about, especially if you have are a male doctor! We get it completely. The real question now, is, well, why do many women have breasts of two different sizes? Referred to as “Breast Asymmetry, size differences can be related to hormonal changes. In particular, an issue during puberty where one breast begins to grow before the other. The other is playing catch-up but might not completely make it.

Trauma can also be a cause of this as well as an obviously botched breast augmentation surgery. It is likely you notice their difference during ovulation, as they might feel full or sensitive then. They retain water and blood flow during this point but return to normal during your period. Other reasons for uneven breasts are things like Atypical Ductal Hyperplasia, Hypoplastic Breasts, and Juvenile Hypertrophy. In very rare instances, cancerous lumps are the cause. Proper mammogram exams can keep a check on this, however.

How Can I Stop Sweating So Much?

While sweating is normal, especially when involved in physical activity, some people sweat a bit more than they likely should on a normal basis. The reason for sweating so much might be due to the job you’re involved in, the heat you experience daily, as well as issues like being overweight. Things like stress and anxiety can play a role, as well as potentially high blood pressure problems. Most of these things are normal and/or easy fixes.

Yet there are more serious issues, such as Hyperhidrosis. This is a condition where your body sweats abnormally, unrelated to exercise or heat. This can be a bit embarrassing, so we can completely understand why you’d want to stop the problem as soon as possible. The best way to handle this is by using stronger deodorant and apply astringents daily. You also want to be sure you dress appropriately for the activity you’ll be involved in. Moreover, use relaxation techniques to keep your body from overreacting to cause sweat to occur.

If I Have Been Diagnosed With HPV Before, Do I Still Have It? Is There A Risk For Cervical Cancer?

A potentially serious condition known as the Human Papilloma Virus can be important to know about. Some people are embarrassed by the issue or simply do not want to bring it up. Thus causing it to be among the medical questions people are afraid to ask. You should first know that while HPV is an STD, it operates differently from Herpes or HIV. First and foremost, we have vaccinations to help against the HPV types that cause genital warts and cancers.

Since it only spreads through unprotected sexual contact, it will operate the same way other STDs operate. What differs it from HIV is that it “CAN” go away. This all depends on the person. Many times, your body will create antibodies that remove the virus completely. Yet this might take many years, which is why if you have HPV, it is best to have sexual contact using protection only. If you have a version that goes away, your risk for cancer is reduced. Yet the type that sticks with you can truly be the most likely to cause cancer. Of all genital cancers diagnosed each year, HPV makes up well over 75% of cases.
