How do if your penis is normal?
Hi is there anyway to check if your penis is normal? Is just don’t really know, and I’m not sure how to check; is there a website or something I can check?
Penises come in all shapes and sizes. If there is something abnormal you should check it with your doctor. Otherwise it’s safe to assume that your penis is as normal as any other.
Does masturbation affect the penis shape and size?
I am 20 yrs old.My penis is like banana shape during erection.Is it normal or not?I masturbate 2 or 3 times in a week.Is it too much?Will it create problem in my sexual life in future?I am so worried about it,please help.
I will cut the crap out and my answer is (1) masturbating 2/3 times a week at age of 20 is more than normal till you get a partner, the other alternative is not to masturbate be a mental wreck.(2) Each male has genetically his own size shape length and girth of penis and there is nothing abnormal about it so long it achieves erection on sex arousal and maintains it for resonable time..(3) Your future sexual life will have no problem at all because of banana shape of your penis or your masturbation 2/3 times a week yes you will have serious mental problem if you do not stop worrying about these non issues. So go ahead enjoy your bachelorhood and do not worry.

Discharge from the penis
Discharge from the penis may be clear, cloudy, yellow, green, or bloody. It may occur with or without pain. Occasionally a clear discharge occurs in men who have suddenly stopped their usual sexual activity or restarted sexual activity after being inactive. This does not cause pain and is not serious.
Pus or other abnormal discharge from the penis may be caused by an infection of the:
Head of the penis (balanitis).
Wartlike growths in the urethra (urethral condyloma) can also cause abnormal discharge from the penis.
A bloody discharge or blood in the semen may be caused by:
A broken blood vessel in the fluid-producing sac (seminal vesicle) that adds to the secretion of the prostate and other glands to form semen. The bloody discharge usually will clear with time.
Prostatitis, an infection of the walnut-shaped cluster of glands located at the bottom of a man’s bladder. The prostate surrounds the urethra, the tube that carries urine from the bladder out of the body through the penis. The prostate gland produces most of the fluid in semen.
Testicular cancer. Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in men 15 to 35 years old and is more common in white men than in black men.
Prostate cancer. This cancer is an abnormal, uncontrolled growth of cells that forms a tumor in the prostate. The cancerous cells also may spread (metastasize) into the lymph nodes, bones, and other parts of the body. Although prostate cancer is very common, most men are not aware they have it.
What are some symptoms of infertility in women?
I am wondering if there are any women who are unable to concieve. How did you find this out? I have always had irregular periods ranging from 47-90 days, currently I have not had my period for almost 6 months and I am not pregnant. My doctor said I could induce a period if I wanted to but I don’t really want to go on drugs. Any advice or personal stories would be appreciated.
Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive after at least one year of intercourse while not using any contraceptive method. A normal fertile couple having regular sex and wishing to have a baby have a pregnancy rate of 50% in five months, 75% in 12 months, and 85-90% at end of 24 months.
The female partner is responsible for infertility in 40% of cases and the male in another 40%. In a few of the cases both are at fault. However, in 20% cases no cause can be found.
The causes of infertility in women
The ovaries do not produce eggs, or these may be defective.
The fallopian tubes or the tubes that transfer the egg from the ovary to the uterus may be blocked or non-functional. This may happen in cases of infections like tuberculosis, endometriosis, or previous surgery of tubes or ovaries.
The uterus and cervix normally produce a thin discharge. If this mucous is excessively thick or contains substances that kill the sperms, then this prevents sperms from swimming through it into the uterine cavity and then to the tubes.
Distorted or partially blocked uterine cavity as in fibroids.
The causes of infertility in males
Men normally produce at least 20 million sperm per ml of semen. If the sperm count is less than this it may adversely affect fertility.
Of the sperms present in the semen, 50% must be actively moving sperms for conception to occur. A lower percentage of actively moving sperms will be unable to swim through the cervix to meet the egg in the fallopian tube.
If more than 50% sperms are abnormal in shape and function, this can also lead to infertility.
If the testes do not produce sperms or these are unable to come out due to blockage of the vas deferens, the tube which carries the sperms from testis out.
Inability to perform normal intercourse due to difficulties in ejaculation, impotence or structural abnormalities of the penis.
The woman can know her time of ovulation
Ovulation is the time when the ovaries produce an egg that enters the fallopian tube. Just before ovulation, the mucous discharge from the vagina increases. In addition, there may be lower abdominal discomfort or pain for a period ranging from half an hour to 24 hours.
If one maintains a basal body temperature chart by taking a daily morning temperature, a rise in temperature by 0.5 degree centigrade around the thirteenth or fourteenth day indicates ovulation. Urine testing kits are also available which help in identifying the time of ovulation by showing a surge of a hormone which is associated with ovulation .
doctor first takes a detailed clinical history to ascertain the possible cause of infertility. If the problem lies in faulty sexual practice, this can be easily corrected. Structural abnormalities in the sex organs are looked for, and sometimes an ultrasound scan may need to be done. Blood and urine tests may be done to look for infection. A laparoscopy can also be performed for diagnosis, in which a telescope in inserted into the abdomen to visualise the internal organs including the uterus , ovaries and tubes.
The potency of the fallopian tubes is tested by performing a hysterosalpingography or HSG. In this a dye is injected into the uterus and X-rays are take which show the filling up of the tubes. No anaesthesia is required for this test and there is only minimal discomfort.
The management of infertility
This depends on the cause of infertility. Every case may need a different approach depending on the nature of the problem and the underlying defect.
Problems with ovulation: If there is a problem with ovulation, certain drugs need to be given to induce ovulation or correct it.
Fallopian tube block: This is treated surgically by a laparoscope or by an open microsurgery technique. In this the blocked segment is excluded and continuity of the patent tubes is re-established. This is a technically demanding procedure. In cases were tubes cannot be corrected by this method, or the procedure fails assisted reproductive procedures (ART) such as in-vitro fertilization (IVF) is undertaken.
Cervical Factor: If the problem lies in the cervix, this can be overcome with procedures such as intrauterine insemination (in which the semen is injected into the uterine cavity) or procedures such as IVF or GIFT (Gamete Intra-Fallopian Transfer ).
Problems in men: Minor problems will respond to medical treatment or to surgery. Intrauterine insemination can help in some of the cases. However, if the problem is not corrected by the above measures then assisted conception by IVF can be offered with considerable success. In cases with very severe sperm deficiency, until a few years ago, the treatment of couple had not been very successful. Micro-manipulation now can be offered to these couples.

How do you get HPV and how fast can it kill you?
Im scared to get HPV but I need to know how you get it.
“Genital human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI). The virus infects the skin and mucous membranes. There are more than 40 HPV types that can infect the genital areas of men and women, including the skin of the penis, vulva (area outside the vagina), and anus, and the linings of the vagina, cervix, and rectum. You cannot see HPV. Most people who become infected with HPV do not even know they have it.
Most people with HPV do not develop symptoms or health problems. But sometimes, certain types of HPV can cause genital warts in men and women. Other HPV types can cause cervical cancer and other less common cancers, such as cancers of the vulva, vagina, anus, and penis. The types of HPV that can cause genital warts are not the same as the types that can cause cancer.
HPV types are often referred to as “low-risk” (wart-causing) or “high-risk” (cancer-causing), based on whether they put a person at risk for cancer. In 90% of cases, the body’s immune system clears the HPV infection naturally within two years. This is true of both high-risk and low-risk types.
Genital warts usually appear as small bumps or groups of bumps, usually in the genital area. They can be raised or flat, single or multiple, small or large, and sometimes cauliflower shaped. They can appear on the vulva, in or around the vagina or anus, on the cervix, and on the penis, scrotum, groin, or thigh. Warts may appear within weeks or months after sexual contact with an infected person. Or, they may not appear at all. If left untreated, genital warts may go away, remain unchanged, or increase in size or number. They will not turn into cancer.
Cervical cancer does not have symptoms until it is quite advanced. For this reason, it is important for women to get screened regularly for cervical cancer.
Other less common HPV-related cancers, such as cancers of the vulva, vagina, anus and penis, also may not have signs or symptoms until they are advanced.
Genital HPV is passed on through genital contact, most often during vaginal and anal sex. A person can have HPV even if years have passed since he or she had sex. Most infected persons do not realize they are infected or that they are passing the virus to a sex partner.
Very rarely, a pregnant woman with genital HPV can pass HPV to her baby during vaginal delivery. In these cases, the child may develop warts in the throat or voice box – a condition called recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (RRP).
HPV can cause normal cells on infected skin or mucous membranes to turn abnormal. Most of the time, you cannot see or feel these cell changes. In most cases, the body fights off HPV naturally and the infected cells then go back to normal.
•Sometimes, low-risk types of HPV can cause visible changes that take the form of genital warts.
•If a high-risk HPV infection is not cleared by the immune system, it can linger for many years and turn abnormal cells into cancer over time. About 10% of women with high-risk HPV on their cervix will develop long-lasting HPV infections that put them at risk for cervical cancer. Similarly, when high-risk HPV lingers and infects the cells of the penis, anus, vulva, or vagina, it can cause cancer in those areas. But these cancers are much less common than cervical cancer.
HPV infection. Approximately 20 million Americans are currently infected with HPV, and another 6.2 million people become newly infected each year. At least 50% of sexually active men and women acquire genital HPV infection at some point in their lives.
Genital warts. About 1% of sexually active adults in the U.S. have genital warts at any one time.
Cervical cancer. The American Cancer Society estimates that in 2008, 11,070 women will be diagnosed with cervical cancer in the U.S.
Other HPV-related cancers are much less common than cervical cancer. The American Cancer Society estimates that in 2008, there will be:
•3,460 women diagnosed with vulvar cancer;
•2,210 women diagnosed with vaginal and other female genital cancers;
•1,250 men diagnosed with penile and other male genital cancers; and
•3,050 women and 2,020 men diagnosed with anal cancer.
Certain populations may be at higher risk for HPV-related cancers, such as gay and bisexual men, and individuals with weak immune systems (including those who have HIV/AIDS).
RRP is very rare. It is estimated that less than 2,000 children get RRP every year.
A vaccine can now protect females from the four types of HPV that cause most cervical cancers and genital warts. The vaccine is recommended for 11 and 12 year-old girls. It is also recommended for girls and women age 13 through 26 who have not yet been vaccinated or completed the vaccine series.
For those who choose to be sexually active, condoms may lower the risk of HPV, if used all the time and the right way. Condoms may also lower the risk
How do i reduce my skin tone?
I’m asian and my skin is light brown but some parts of it are very uneven.My elbows,knees,underarms,butt and penis are completely black compared to my otherwise light brown skin.It looks really ugly and i’ve seen that it’s quite common but how do i fix it?Is there like a home remedy that works?
Also my hands and face have turned dark due to exposure to the sun and i’d like to get rid of this tan so that the skin tone matches with the rest of my body.
I was THAT COLOR for 13 years, living in Asia.
Exfoliate using a wash cloth, each time you take a shower using bath & body wash. You tanned skin will go back to baby-soft skin, and part of those exposed from the sun will eventually fades. I have no idea how long, since I don’t know how long you’ve been exposed to the sun, but your penis if they’re dark, many people also have dark pubes NATURALLY. Number one rule: stay out of the sun. Like Mario Lopez, he’s a Mexican descent, but he won’t even stand outside in the sun to do a photo shoot for a tanning lotion. Julianne Moore is one of those, who like to protect her skin from AGING. She walks in the shade. I grow up in Asia for 13 years, so I was dark, but it took more than 13 years to the color I have now. My neighbor only do errands after the sun had gone down.
Best sunscreen: wear denim clothing, floppy hat, or umbrella. They were invented to protect us from the elements.
Your tan will fade after several months even years, depends how old you are now. I was a vendor outside, sitting only in the shade, until a car parked in front of me, the glass reflecting right @ me, during sunset, caused my chest to tan (not burn) and discolored, it took about 3 weeks for them to fade.
RE SKIN LIGHTENING:
The FDA have banned 23 more whitening products. Google it. About 17,600,000 results.
The reason cited for the proposed ban is that studies in rodents show “some evidence” that hydroquinone may act as a carcinogen or cancer-causing chemical, although its cancer-causing properties have yet to be proved in humans. Hydroquinone also has been linked with the medical condition known as ochronosis in which the skin becomes dark and thick. Dome-shaped yellowish spots and grayish-brown spots also are observed in ochronosis among black women and men in South Africa, Britain, and the U.S. Ochronosis has been observed in conjunction with hydroquinone use even in persons who have used hydroquinone-containing cosmetics for a short time. Some studies also report abnormal function of the adrenal glands and high levels of mercury in people who have used hydroquinone-containing cosmetics. For these reasons, hydroquinone has already been banned in Japan, the European Union, and Australia.
Any skin-lightening products containing hydroquinone would be considered new drugs, according to the proposed FDA regulations. The products would require FDA approval before being sold to the public and would only be available with a doctor’s prescription.
Skin Creams, Soaps and Lotions Marketed as Skin Lighteners and Anti-aging Treatments: May Contain the Toxic Metal, Mercuryduring sunset, caused my chest to tan (not burn) and discolored, for about 3 weeks.
I’ve been protecting myself from the sun since I was 9.
1. Because I don’t want to look like a farmer.
2. Because I get too hot.
3. I want to look like movie stars & models, they have blemish-free skins.
4. I don’t want to look like an old prune or get moles on my neck & face like my aunts.
