What is Adderall?

Adderall is a central nervous system stimulant. It affects chemicals in the brain and nerves that contribute to hyperactivity and impulse control.

Adderall is used to treat narcolepsy and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Adderall may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Important information about Adderall:

Do not take Adderall if you have used an MAO inhibitor such as isocarboxazid (Marplan), tranylcypromine (Parnate), phenelzine (Nardil), rasagiline (Azilect), or selegiline (Eldepryl, Emsam) within the past 14 days. Serious, life-threatening side effects can occur if you take Adderall before the MAO inhibitor has cleared from your body. Do not use this medication if you are allergic to amphetamine and dextroamphetamine, or if you have hardened arteries (arteriosclerosis), heart disease, moderate to severe high blood pressure (hypertension), overactive thyroid, glaucoma, severe anxiety or agitation, or a history of drug or alcohol addiction. Some stimulants have caused sudden death in children and adolescents with serious heart problems or congenital heart defects. Before taking Adderall, tell your doctor if you have any type of heart problems.

Long-term use of this medicine can slow a child's growth. Tell your doctor if the child using Adderall is not growing or gaining weight properly.

Adderall is a drug of abuse and may be habit-forming. Keep track of how many pills have been used from each new bottle of this medicine. You should be aware if any person in the household is using this medicine improperly or without a prescription. Using this medication improperly can cause death or serious side effects on the heart.

Before taking Adderall:

Do not take Adderall if you have used an MAO inhibitor such as isocarboxazid (Marplan), tranylcypromine (Parnate), phenelzine (Nardil), rasagiline (Azilect), or selegiline (Eldepryl, Emsam) within the past 14 days. Serious, life-threatening side effects can occur if you take Adderall before the MAO inhibitor has cleared from your body.

Do not use Adderall if you are allergic to amphetamine and dextroamphetamine or if you have:

  • heart disease or moderate to severe high blood pressure (hypertension);
  • arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries);
  • overactive thyroid;
  • glaucoma;
  • severe anxiety, tension, or agitation; or
  • if you have a history of drug or alcohol addiction.

Some stimulants have caused sudden death in children and adolescents with serious heart problems or congenital heart defects.

Before using Adderall, tell your doctor if you are allergic to any drugs, or if you have:

  • a congenital heart defect;
  • high blood pressure;
  • heart failure, heart rhythm disorder, or recent heart attack;
  • a personal or family history of mental illness, psychotic disorder, bipolar illness, depression, or suicide attempt;
  • epilepsy or other seizure disorder; or
  • tics (muscle twitches) or Tourette's syndrome.

If you have any of these conditions, you may need a dose adjustment or special tests to safely take Adderall.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    what can i do to make adderall last longer or feel more intense?
    Is there anything that I can take or do while on adderall to make it last longer? I usually like to take just one because it doesnt make my side effects as bad but it doesnt last that long. i currently take 20 mg instant release. but sometimes when i take more, i feel irritable and frustrated. so i was just curious if there anything i could do to make it more intense while on it? are there things that make it less intense?

    • ANSWER:
      Ask your doctor about the extended release form of the drug at a higher dose. Instead of the immediate release of the entire dose, you will feel a slow, sustained release over a longer period of time. If the extended release is not an option for you, split a pill in half and take them at separate times - say one now, one in an hour or two. You could continue with this, taking a half pill every two to four hours as you need. Be sure to talk to your doctor first to make sure the advice I'm giving fits your treatment program.

      Because of the way you present your question, I first thought you were abusing the drug just for the high. After reading through, I see that you have a medical question here, but there are still signs of abuse in how you state your problem - I am not preaching, I am advising caution so this does not become a problem.

  4. QUESTION:
    Will drinking an energy drink while on adderall help make the effects last longer?
    I was perscribed 40mg of adderall XR daily and it seems to wear off within 4 hours. Can drinking an energy drink once i dont feel adderall anymore help me focus the whole day?

    • ANSWER:
      Funny how I run into this question. I was looking for the same thing because at the moment I have taken 45mg of adderall and 4 monsters in the past 38 hours or so and have had 2 hours of sleep. I feel GREAT! I am studying for college and I work so I need the help. But a good idea is that if you do need to go to sleep just burn a Bowl and the crash is amazing. But honestly don't f*(&^ around with it, firgure out what your body can take from each and then figure out a good amount of shit to take. Start small. Oh yeah and dont forget to keep a phone around you and a gallon of water.

  8. QUESTION:
    Will niccotine from cigarettes mixed with Adderall keep me up longer?
    I've heard that niccotine from cigarettes when smoked while you are buzzed on Adderall will make the Adderall stronger and also last longer. Is this true?

      Sorry, i wish i knew, but i do know that just cigs alone can give you a boost (thats is why i am on here at 1230 at night) so I think that just might be true!!

  9. QUESTION:
    How long is Adderall supposed to last?
    I mean how many hours is it effective during the day? I usually take 1 pill at the beginning of the day like at 6 am and by 1, it seems like it wares off because i fall asleep in that class. I really don't know what kind I take. I know that it's not Adderall XR, it's a little blue tablet that has AD on it and numbers on the other side. My doctor told me mom to only give me 1 a day. So what can I do to make it last longer? Should I take half at the beginning of the day and take the other half at 1?

    • ANSWER:
      try taking it later in the day like 8 or 9 am.
      you should not cut pills in half that are not 'scored' (have a line down the middle) because there may not be the same amount of medicine in each half

      the blue round one is 10 milligrams and the oval one is 7 1/2 milligrams

  11. QUESTION:
    does crushing the beads in adderall make it stronger?
    ok i have been snorting quite alot of adderall lately
    but i have been just breaking the pill and snorting the beads
    i wanna know if crushing them would make the potency and
    make the high last longer

    and dont comment if you gonna talk shit

    • ANSWER:
      No, if you have beads in your pill than you are taking 30's this form of it does not need any help at all, swallow and enjoy. Crushing it up can actually cause brain damage. be smart and just swallow. If swallowing them has become so jaded that you need to blow them, than take a break and let your brain relax! You have grown a massive tolerance.

      When i was around there were only orange 20's and i only got my hands on 30's like twice and they were always the bomb!

      Take it easy and do it every once in a while, it will be funner and easier on you!

  12. QUESTION:
    What depression medicine can make me feel more like I do on Adderall, but instead lasts for a longer period?
    Basically, I have ADHD and Depression. I've been on different depressions medicines from the past year or so, and at this point there's no real reason that's causing my depression. I was most currently on Effexor but am now switching over to Zoloft. I really only feel "happy" when I'm on Adderall which is meant to help my concentrate and sit still. I realized I feel better on it because it has some chemical called dopamine which is a type of happy chemical, but I was wondering why the depression medicine doesn't make me happy like I am on Adderall because I know that the depression medicine has dopamine in it too! Instead I always kind of feel blank, not too happy or sad, which sucks because life just seems pointless because I never am really motivated to do anything.

    QUESTIONS:
    1) What is the difference between Zoloft and Effexor, which one will push towards the happier state I'm at while on my Adderall?
    2) Starting Zoloft right after Effexor will I feel any difference, for example; happier/more depressed/more energized
    3) What are the benefits of Zoloft and what's it's purpose that makes it stand out amongst other depression medicines?
    4) Could this feeling of not being really happy or sad, yet irritated and having no motivation or inspiration still be a symptom of depression or does everyone feel this way?
    5) How can I build up on the dopamine in my brain, basically feeling happier, besides taking Zoloft, any natural methods to help build it up?
    6) How can you defeat depression?
    7) Is there a way to kind of trick my brain into making me feel happier, for example thinking positive, and how does this work?

    • ANSWER:
      Omega 3 Fish oil. Start low and increase until you get a positive change and then stay at that amount. Fish oil are essential fatty acids that the body needs.

      All these other drugs effect the pituitary gland which then affects your adrenal glands and then in trying to balance this drug it unbalances your entire hormonal system. Thus all the side effects. I've also know of many people who couldn't get off these drugs as they can cause side effects that are worse then being on them.

      The body can experience deficiencies of what it needs and thus cause problems. You just need to give it the nutrients it needs to function correctly. The body never had a deficiency of prozac or lexapro. They are drugs.

  13. QUESTION:
    How long does 20mg of Blue Adderall Last?
    I recently was started on adderall for my ADD and I got the blue king, 10mg pills, and i am trying to make sure i take enough to where i do not OD but i can make it all the way through school. Help please :D

    I also heard It helps with weight loss?! True?

    • ANSWER:
      20mgs of Adderall will last for approximately 4 hours or so with a little bit of a comedown. Nothing major. Someone I know takes 60mgs in one sitting, then 40mgs 3 hours later (totally unsafe and hard on the heart) but then again he has a very high tolerance. So 20mgs isn't going to make you OD.. so don't worry about it.

      Also, it does help weight loss because it makes you not hungry at all!

  14. QUESTION:
    What does raising adderall or adderall xr dosage do?
    Does it make it stronger or make it last longer?

    • ANSWER:
      Increasing the dosage of a drug in a person does not make the drug "stronger". That is characteristic of the drug and cannot be changed unless by chemical means.
      Increasing the dosage may however increase the time it takes for the drug to be removed from your system. While all drugs have a standard half life (after x amount of time they are at concentration y in your blood) increasing the drug dosage may keep the drug in your system longer.
      Increasing the dose of a drug is often done to account for many factors, the most common being body mass.

  15. QUESTION:
    How long will a 30 mg adderall last?
    If I took one a little before 11 PM, do you think I could make it all the way through the day tomorrow?? Or at least until about 5 PM or so? (With the help of some caffeine of course)

    Yeah it was an XR and I'm taking it so late because I've got a test to study for before tomorrow, hahah. Thanks everyone! :)

    • ANSWER:
      Is it an Adderall XR? XRs will last about 8 hours. If not, about 4 -5 hours. Caffeine will help to keep you awake longer too, but it also depends on how often you've taken the Adderall in the past.

  16. QUESTION:
    Why doesn't Adderall last for me?
    I have taken a 20mg XR two different times now and both times, it's taken about an hour for me to feel it, and doesn't last longer than three hours after that.

    I'm 5'4'', 105 pounds. It doesn't make sense that I'd have a really high tolerance to anything.

    I haven't had anything acidic. I drank like, two bottles of water, and had a sandwich. And that's it.

    • ANSWER:
      Well adderall is an ineffective drug to begin with. It also creates eating disorders, which it sounds like you have already developed one. I don't see why doctors still prescribe this shit. It does more damage to the human body than good. A safer and more effective drug is Strattera. If I were you I'd talk to your doctor about it.

  17. QUESTION:
    i am taking 20 mg of adderall everyday and it lasts about 1 to 2 hrs. is there anyway i can make the effects?
    last longer. like something i could drink or eat. i know about the Adderall xr but i cant be prescribed that because of my blood pressure

    • ANSWER:
      if you need the effects to last longer then the safest way is to talk to your doctor about that.

      alkaline environments increase absorption of the drug. acid and esp vitamin c inhibit it. So basically don't eat your meds with a bowl of strawberries and a glass of OJ if you want them to work. If you want to start tweaking your body's pH, then you are on your own.

      One could try those Ph test papers and test your urine. If it is low then the dose wont last long. if it is high then the liver won't metabolize it as well. This doesn't mean you will "feel" it longer as the "feeling" comes from the rapid change in blood level concentrations...i.e., the "peak" feeling does not correspond to the "peak" blood serum levels.

      If your ADD meds are working then hopefully you will remember to vote me best answer.

  18. QUESTION:
    Does adderall also effect womens sex drive and proformance?
    So here's a good question, I take adderall and I know it makes me last a long time during sex and makes me proform 10 times better. Also it makes me really horny. What does it do for women?

    • ANSWER:
      It makes me hornier as well. I can have multiple orgasms so sometimes when I'm masturbating I get compulsive and can't stop!! When I take it, I give my boyfriend better blow jobs. Be careful when having sex on adderall though- because it increases your heart rate, and so does having sex.

  19. QUESTION:
    How long do Adderall side effects last?
    My doctor recently prescribed me Adderall Xr for ADD. I have only been taking it for 4 days and am experiencing some pretty bothersome side effects. I have lost my appetite and have horrible insomnia, both of which I know are common. When i try to make myself eat I get nauseous and i have headaches bc i get no sleep. I feel wired and my heart has been racing, which is starting to make me nervous. Has anyone else experienced these side effects? If so, how long did they last or how long are they supposed to last? I just need a light at the end of the tunnel...

    • ANSWER:
      I would call your doctor and bring up the side effects. They may just be temporary while your body gets used to the medicine, or they may be a sign that the medicine is not compatible with your body. You might try to stick it out as long as the doctor(with limits)thinks. Anyways a Medical Doctor is the only person whom you should take advice on this from, back to my point at the top of my answer. I hope it helps!

  20. QUESTION:
    Why doesn't 20mg Adderall XR last for me?
    I have taken a 20mg XR two different times now and both times, it's taken about an hour for me to feel it, and doesn't last longer than three hours after that.

    I'm 5'4'', 105 pounds. It doesn't make sense that I'd have a really high tolerance to anything.

    I haven't had anything acidic. I drank like, two bottles of water, and had a sandwich. And that's it.

    I don't have an eating disorder, by the way.. since someone made that comment the last time I asked that question. No part of me wants to lose weight, don't assume, please.

    • ANSWER:
      the sandwich would probally interfere somewhat but xr is really not that good, your best bet would be to get IR or if you cant save up like 3 xrs and snort them all

  21. QUESTION:
    does adderall make you a genius?
    okay, so i'm on the fence about whether i should be taking adderall or not.

    i have recently emerged from withdrawal that lasted for about a year or so as i waned my way off of adderall little by little. I used to take 60 mg a day, then found that was too much so i gradually went down to 10 mg a day which seems perfect.

    Recently, i took a paper "test" and a "test" where somebody asks me some questions about vocab and stuff like that, and one at a computer. This was at my psychiatrists office and she told me the test basically said that i was not ADD. Also, I have bipolar disorder, so she said she couldn't prescribe me adderall any longer. I have been on adderall for 8 years before that! I have also been on the Deans list in college while on Adderall!

    well, after she took me off i basically went through another withdrawal for about 3 months, i dropped out of school because i lost my motivation to do anything, EVEN THOUGH ON AS LITTLE AS 10 MG OF ADDERALL I WAS MOST EFFICIENT. I've been looking online to see if I really am ADD/ADHD or not and came up with the conclusion that ADD/ADHD IS A PSUEDO DISORDER. So basically this means that anyone can take Adderall if they have problems concentrating. The other thing is that I have paranoid symptoms (without the adderall) and I take Risperdal to counteract these symptoms.

    Now the risperdal makes me super laid back, so I don't want to do anything. So the adderall basically counteracts the risperdal so I can not be paranoid or OCD and get through the day. I tried to tell my psychiatrist this, but she didn't want to listen.

    Now I am off the adderall for good. Many people have called me a "genius" because of the ideas that I have produced while on the adderall. I tried talking to my sister and telling her that I'm not really a genius becuase I have lost my motivation to do anything when I'm not on the adderall (which may be a side effect of the risperdal) and she says that adderall doesn't make you a genius, it just makes you more efficient at getting things done.

    So what do you think...? Does adderall make you a genius, would I still be a genius if I dropped the risperdal, will i ever get that drive back to accomplish things? Should I stay off of adderall because it is basically cheating? My only concern is getting my drive back at the most efficient cost. Obviously I don't want to be on something that I will have to depend on when I don't need it. But look at diabetics, if they didn't have insulin where would they be...? Quid pro quo. Let me know your feedback. Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      interesting!!! you make some excellent points. here is my adderall story:

      i was first prescribed adderall about 18 months ago by my psychiatrist. up until that point i had been suffering from depression that no anti-depressant seemed to help, as well as panic disorder. my psychiatrist asked me how school was going, and i told him the truth: i was having problems concentrating, i was not able to get organized, and i was thinking of dropping out as it was simply too much to be both a single mother to a toddler and a full time student. i could not juggle both. he then wrote me a prescription for 20 mg IR adderall, for two weeks. i was to take one each morning after breakfast.

      well. this medication allowed me to clear my head and regain a sense of motivation. i was able to participate in life again.

      my dose was then increased to 30 mg 2x a day, which is what i still to this day take. my depression has finally been alleviated. i was able to stop taking the ativan i had been using for a crutch for years - i no longer experienced panic attacks.

      i did occasionaly have problems sleeping, and my psychiatrist prescribed me temazepam, which is the only effective sleep medication i have ever encountered.

      after years of trying med after med after med, i have found the combination that has cured my mental illness.

      so... to get to the question does adderall cause genius? I answer with a resounding YES. of course it is conditional: the potential for genius must be present, of course - adderall is not going to turn an individual with a borderline retarded I.Q. begin solving calculus - but it absolutely maximizes potential when used correctly.

      with adderall i go from a typing speed of maybe 45 wpm to 70 wpm. ideas flow forth from a center of being and materialize as a written word. colors are brighter and i appreciate the beauty of a blissful normal life.

      i do not pretend i have ADHD. i agree that it is a psuedo disorder - it is so vauge that there isn't even a standard for diagnosis.

      children and adults alike are brainwashed. every day on this very website you will find every color of the rainbow.

      there are those who blatantly ask what they need to convince a doctor to give them stimulants.

      and then there are my personal favorites: the teenagers who do a trial run of their symptoms to see if it will trick the average person. you know, something like

      " i am 13 and i have very bad add. i am very hyper and my grades are horrible. i say very random things and daydream for no reason. i can't do my homework because i can't remember to bring home my math book and i do it every single day. another reason i know i have add is that caffiene makes me fall asleep."

      or

      "my teacher said i have add and when i told my mom she called the doctor and made an appointment for me to come in and get a prescription. should i take adderall or ritalin? i know i took a friend's adderall by mistake one day but the dose must have been too high because i became extremely drowsy. so should i tell the doctor i need 10 mg or 20 mg and how many times a day."

      i find it hilarious.

      it is a shame your doctor took the viewpoint she did. if a medication works, why discontinue it? of course you wouldn't want to give someone in the throes of a manic episode adderall. but if the bipolar is controlled by medication, i truly see no problem. my baby's father suffers from bi-polar and his psychiatrist cheerfully writes him a ritalin prescription each month. when he was hospitalized for a manic episode he was given ritalin right along with his lithium and risperdal. he only takes the ritalin when he has to wake up early. he also says the only thing that helps him is smoking marijuana.

      risperdal works by slowing down your thinking. who wants to live life that way, especially after the clarity of genius has walked across your threshold.

      you should switch psychiatrists. you clearly have insight into your condition. why should you have to live life because some doctor refuses to listen to your viewpoint. get back on your adderall. why should some officious kid get prescribed a medication which he cannot even appreciate.

      sorry this is so long but i got really excited.

    i was just at my new doctor and i told them that i needed adderall and i was taking 60 mg. i was diagnosed with a learning disability, so i was given concerta. i HATE concerta. i was told it was easy to get, and its totally not. thet started grilling me about where i got it, how much i've been taking, and who prescribed it to me. i told them dr. satler gave it to me (thats the jurassic park dr.) i just sort of panicked like i wanted to run because they kept telling me thats way too much to be taking. the reason i wanted that much is because my insurance is running out and i wanted to cut the pills up to make it last longer. they tried pulling up records which i knew they wouldn't find. i have been getting concerta from a friend, but another friend gives me adderall and it works so much better! now they say i have to get tested for it before i get it, what do i do? they know i lied i think!
    also i'm 18 years old, and they went and asked my dad why i was taking it and all these other questions. that is doctor patient cofidentiality! they aren't allowed to do that! my insurance keeps me from changing doctors.

  25. QUESTION:
    How long does 25 mg extended release of Adderall last?
    I am not ADD or ADHD and yes I know that I'm not supposed to take any medication that I'm not prescribed. Spare me the lecture, please :P I am taking it for study purposes because I have four exams this week. But anyways, I just want to know about how long 25 mg of extended release adderall will last on me. I'm a pretty small size and don't regularly take adderall. The last time I took it was about six months ago.

    Also, I tend to get a very dry mouth from taking adderall and drink a TON of water while I'm on it. Does this make it go out of my system faster? I'd assume so because its flushing out your system... I pee like every 40 minutes. Also, do you know of any cures to dry mouth because drinking water doesn't really help.

    Thanks for answering!

  27. QUESTION:
    I just started taking Adderall for possible ADD (a few questions)?
    Long story, I was prescribed Adderall but insurance wouldn't pay for it until I tried Concerta. That didn't work at all, so today I got Adderall. It says on the container to take 1/2 pill twice a day(because it's not XR, I'm supposed to make the same dose last longer). So at about 8PM, I took a half. 30minutes or so later, I quickly get this feeling all over my body that's kind of tingly under my skin. I also get light-headed, slight dizziness, and a fake exhaustion(I felt way tired but had plenty of energy). At the time, I was filling out a tax form at the table and had to stop and lay my head down for a minute. It was the weirdest thing that's ever happened to me. After a while, I feel kind of slowed down, both in mind and body. I can still move quickly, but it feels weird. The thing is, most of the side-effects I experienced were not listed on the Wikipedia page on Adderall.

    Are these normal effects? What exactly will I notice if it works? I learned that Adderall is mixed amphetamine salts. So how is it related to methamphetamine?
    Also I probably should have mentioned that my sleep schedule is not normal or consistent. I went to sleep at 2AM last night but woke up at 8 this morning(for school). At the time I took the pill, I wasn't feeling sleepy at all, and I knew that I wouldn't go to sleep until well after midnight.

    • ANSWER:
      You felt that way because you body was naturally tired with this stimulant counteracting the chemicals in your brain that tell you its time to go to sleep soon.

      8pm is way to late to take adderall but those are normal effects

      And adderall is pure amphetamine, or dextroamphetamine which is in the family of meth. it's not as addictive as meth but is closely related.

  28. QUESTION:
    Adderall XR two times a day?
    I have a prescription for Adderall XR and I have been taking it for about 3 years. I had to go away to college in VA but my doctor was so good I didn't want to switch. So since he is in FL and I am in VA, he has to mail me the written prescriptions for adderall. The office isn't open right now but I had a question. Sometimes in the past he has written the prescription so that it says twice a day just so that my medication lasts longer and I don't have to get it filled as often. This last prescription that came in the mail, when I filled it it came with twice the amount of pills and said "Take twice daily" so to make a long question really short, do you think he was probably trying to just give me more pills or do people really take XR twice a day? I can't imagine how you'd sleep

    • ANSWER:
      That seems odd, you would never sleep! If he is indeed doing this to help you get 2 months at a time, maybe ask him to write the RX to take two at a time in the morning. Just make sure that he and you are on the same page and both know what's going on.

  29. QUESTION:
    If I don't have ADD, then why does taking Adderall help me so much?
    Alright so basically I am almost positive I had ADD. First of all, when I was littlier, (like 1st grade or 2nd grade) they tested me for ADD and i came out positave, but they never perscribed me anything (which personally i think is bullcrap, but whatever). And as school gets harder, i just cannot function. Like, if somebody that is reading this right now has ADD, they know exactly what I'm talking about.

    School for me, its just too hard to concentrate, so i give up. And ill have those days in school where im like "alright im gonna try extremly hard to concentrate". And I try, but i wont comprehend anything. And it's just not school, its everything. Like when i watch movies, ill watch them but after i watch it i will ill think to myself "what was that about???" People will be talking about the story behide it and im just like uhh okay sure yeah. I can honestly say that i have never ever watched a movie and comprehended the whole thing, storyline and all (im not a big movie fan but whatever)
    Also this goes for video games, too. Ill beat the campaign, and yeah ill just kill people. I dont know what the hell the story is behind it, because ill be lost 15 minutes into the game, and i just play to kill, and be a badass.

    But anyways, I tried to get my doctor to prescribe me some type of medicane (hes obsessed with concerta, never tried it, but I like Adderall). So he made my teachers full out evaluations (Which I thought was the dumbest thing I've ever heard because thats like saying I have ADD ONLY in school, which is wrong)
    And My teachers say that they dont think that I have ADD. So my doctor wont perscribe anything to me.

    Before school (When I can get it) I will take adderall, and oh my goodness, I love it. I wont talk to my friends without having all my work done, and I make sure I get everything done. When school is over, i walk to the parking lot, get in my car, and do my homework and wont leave the parking lot until all my work is done (which is EXTREMELY unusual for me).

    Like I don't know, maybe every person was ment for a differen't drug, If thats true, Adderall is definally mine. I've tried other drugs, and I don't really like them. Some are alright, but nothing makes me feel better than Adderall. And It's not that it makes me speed either, it just makes me feel so good. I mean if I take more than 50 mg then I will speed a little, but none hardly at all. And sure, Adderall has it's bad side effects like grinding your teeth (which doesnt bother me), bad breath from from dehydration (only has happend 1 or 2 times, but dont mind it because ill usually just buy some type of drink at school if i start to get bad breath), and loss of appetite (which I am not going to lie, i kind of like this "Horrible" side effect). I like it because well, i need to drop like 10-15 pounds, but i also like the whole loss of appetite thing because I usually spend like 3 dollars on lunch at school, which would consist of a drink and 2 bags of chips. I could never wait to get out of school. When you're out of school, 3 dollars is buying you 3 double cheeseburgers. Also I've noticed when I do adderall in the morning right when i get to school, the loss of appetite wares off at like 7:00, which is the perfect time to eat.

    Now, I am not saying that my doctor should perscribe me to 100 mg of adderall right this second, but some type of ADD medication would seriously be nice.

    What do you think I should do? Get a new doctor?

    Oh and also one more thing that I've noticed about the whole bad side effect thing. Adderall XR's (extended release, which just means it last alot longer in you). Adderall XR's do give me insane insomnia, and i mean massive. Like its 4:10 in the morning right now, I have school tomarrow, and i had about 3 hours of sleep last night. And I am wide awake, I keep trying to go to sleep but i can't, and I took the Adderall XR's more than 22 hours ago!

    But anyways, I am not sure what I should do. Like how would a 16 year old kid talk a doctor into perscribing him one of the most trafficed perscribtion drugs in school systems? It's not going to happen. And I can't just tell him straight up "Yeah doc i did Adderall illegally and it helped me in school'?

    Suggestions? Any?

    • ANSWER:
      Your teachers probably don't realize you have ADD because you are already self-medicating. Many of my teachers didn't realize I did either because I was a quiet kid. If your doctor is making your teachers fill out evaluations about YOU, you need a new doctor. It's not your teachers' call. See a REAL THERAPIST, and if your parents are on your side about this, take them with you. Say that you want Adderall. I took the lowest dosage available of Concerta back when I was in school and it works pretty well too. I eventually had to stop because even at the lowest dosage the side effects were too much for me to deal with.

      But here's the important thing: Medication is to help you develop good habits and eventually go off the drug. Always keep that in mind. Adderoll isn't a cure-all, but it will help you get through school and develop good habits for later in life.

  30. QUESTION:
    I just took 10 mg of adderall at about 4pm. How long will it last? b/c I don't like the way it makes me feel.
    I was prescribed 20mg of Adderall for ADHD and was reluctant to begin taking them b/c of all the things I was hearing about them, but I need to be able to do well in school. I thought 20 was high for me, at least so I halved it and took 10 @ about 4pm and it's now 9pm. At first I was ok.. I focused and finished all my work, but now a couple hours later, I feel jittery and my neck is stiff( which could be the hours sitting at the computer) After all that verbal vomit.. lol.. my question is how long will the effects last.. b/c I don't like this feeling. I'm going to talk to my doctor tomorrow about it, but since its late and he's not available I figured someone here would be able to help.. I'm so new to these drugs... I've only used Ginseng to help control my ADHD... Help me please.. :-)

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Funnygal, you are doing the right thing in wanting to see your doctor tomorrow. While there, pick his (doctor) brain as much as possible because you have the right to know. That's what you are paying him for anyway.

      Adderall works differently on different people. That is why experts will always tell you that there is no surefire method to treat ADHD.

      In any case, I suggest you take a look at this article and see whether you can relate to any of the stuff you are taking or not taking at the moment. Here goes:

      http://www.adhdquestionsandanswers.com/ADHD_Vitamins.html

      Funnygal, if you are not into physical exercises at the moment, it would be good for you to get into one and do it on a REGULAR basis. Exercises and eating nutritious food have been found in many studies to help ADHD people in many ways, including learning and behaviour.

      Good night Funnygal, and sweet dreams.

  31. QUESTION:
    How do I make my vagina and underwear smell good?
    My boyfriend has a real fetish when it comes to underwear and the smell of vagina. He wants a pair of panties with my scent on it and he said that the scent lasts longer if I wear the underwear for 2-3 days first. I recently got put on some medicine (adderall, seroquell, and lexapro) and I have noticed that I smell slightly off and to me it smells very bad. I usually like my scent which is usually faint and clean, but this is just really strong and concentrated and slightly fishy. I have never had fishy discharge before. Is there anything I can do to make it smell better? Could the scent change be caused by dehydration from the medicine? I really want to be able to give him a pair of panties but I don't want to do it if I don't feel confident that it doesn't smell bad. Also, is there any way that I can make the scent stronger and last longer without wearing the same panties for 2-3 days in a row?
    I do wash myself daily. The reason I want to know about making the scent last longer on the panties w/out wearing it for 2-3 days straight is because I can't stand the idea of doing that. I am the kind of person who takes 2-3 showers a day b/c I like to be as clean as possible.

  32. QUESTION:
    how do i get my doctor to prescribe adderall if concerta makes me sick?
    i've been taking concerta for my adhd for over a week now, started with 18mg and am now up to 54mg. it is very important for me to take for school and it does make it a little easier to concentrate. unfortunately it makes me very nauseous, cold, gives me a long lasting headache and makes me very very sleepy (i believe because it is a methylphenidate). a lot of time i just sit there because i'm feeling too sick to do my work let alone be there for more than 6 hours straight. i've tried a friend's adderall once and it worked great. i've also researched it and feel it's a better drug for me. i heard if you ask your doctor for adderall they won't give it to you, and i don't want to tell my doctor that i've tried it before in fear that i wont get it. how can i get him to prescribe me adderall without outright asking him, or would that be the only way to do it?

    • ANSWER:
      Some professsionals look at ADHD as a brain chemical imbalance, while others treat it as a "psychiatric disorder." It sounds like a tangent but I suffer from major depression and attend a weekly support group for people with depression, bipolar disorder, etc. The first thing I learned is that people can react very differently to psychiatric medications. A med that is very helpful for one person may not have the same effect on someone else.

      To find the right drug for a patients is, unfortunately, a matter of trial and error. Your reactions to concerta sound dreadful. However, sometimes it takes the body a while, as much as a month, to adjust to a new medication. Then the side effects lessen or completely disappear and the positive effects of the drugs kick in. That may or may not happen with you and concerta. It could just be the wrong drug for you.

      Concerta contains methylphenidate, which is a stimulant, so in theory it should NOT make you drowsy. You can check out the side effects at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Methylphenidate

      The fact that adderall made you feel great once is no guarantee that it will continue to work well for you in the future. It is comprised of amphetamine and dextroamphetamine, so some doctors are quite reluctant to prescribe it, especially to children or teens.

      Sometimes "it pays to tell the truth." However, if you tell your doctor that you illegally tried a friend's adderall, it will probably upset your doctor quite a bit. Using someone else's medication, especially an amphetamine, is the last thing doctors want to hear. I suggest that you stress over and over how awful concerta made you feel. You can then add that you have heard or read about the positive effects of adderall. The doc may try adderall or another med for ADHD drugs like vyvanse that may work well.

      I have been in your situation with trying friends' drugs a few times. So I am not trying to preach to you. I am actually trying to tell you the best way to get a better medication, whether it is adderall, vyvanse, or whatever. I wish you the best.

      By the way, here is a list of meds usually used for ADHD.

  33. QUESTION:
    Can I use Adderall XR without fear?
    Today I was diagnosed with ADD and was given a prescription for 10mg pills to take daily. Ignoring the virtual 'high' I got from first taking it, it worked really well. But I'm worried because of the fact that it seems to be one step below METH and I've never had experience with true drugs so I don't know how strong the pull to abuse might eventually be. Especially since it warns that it can cause 'sudden death' in abusers. I can't really imagine ME abusing a drug- never drank, smoked, done drugs, etc- but I can see how it would be possible as the 'high' ended within about 4 hours. Of course, it helped me focus unbelievably at home and school though.

    Also is there a way to make the effects of EXTREME concentration last longer throughout the day?

    Btw I'm 16, 156lbs, and the pill is 10mg of Adderall XR, one month's worth of prescriptions.

    • ANSWER:
      Adderall when used for ADD treatment is way safer than meth. Actually untreated ADHD is more likely to cause drug abuse. If you don't do any drugs or drink and are very concerned about addiction, forget it. YOU WILL NOT ABUSE IT. If you are still concerned, you can take periodic breaks from it or switch to a non-stimulant med like Wellbutrin or Strattera. The risk of sudden death is from heart conditions. Get an EKG. Doctors usually recommend it when you first start taking stimulants because there's a tiny chance of that and they don't want to take the risk.

      I've been on Adderall for almost a year and have not had any problems with addiction and wouldn't even think to abuse it.

  34. QUESTION:
    how to exploit adderall for weight loss?
    i have 30 mg of generic adderall. would my appetite be supressed longer if i take 10 mg a day(would it last the whole day or 8 hours or less) OR if i take the whole 30 mg for one day(which would only last for about a day)? basically i'm trying to make the appetite suppressant effect last as long as possible.

    also if you want to lecture me about the dangers/illegality/etc. of this, or tell me to just diet and exercise, then please go dump that on someone else.

    • ANSWER:
      Begin with your minimum dosage if just starting adderall or else it will make you very, very irritable. Then up your dosage as your Dr says. I lost 15 pounds with just the beginning dosage of 10 mg and with being on 30mg, I lost 15 more in 2-3 months time.

  35. QUESTION:
    why are my meds making sex last too long?
    i just started on adderall and citalopram, supposed to be an off brand for lexapro. My sex life all of a sudden has gotten great but at the same time i can not achieve orgasm. though this was great at first for my wife, its gotten to the point where my testicles are sometimes sore, and I haven't had an orgasm in a while. any ideas or help if its the meds or there's something I can do to achieve an orgasm?

    • ANSWER:
      go to doc and tell him about it! sounds like a side effect of your medications (either by themselves or WHEN THEY R MIXED)

  36. QUESTION:
    Snorting Adderall...?
    I'll make this short and sweet...

    I want to know how long the effects of Adderall XR will last if I snort it.

    I have a prescription for Adderall XR, and I kinda want to snort some right now to get high, because I'm drunk and the booze just doesn't do it for me anymore. I really do have ADD- I was diagnosed with it about 10 years ago, and have been taking either adderall or ritalin ever since, so I have an extremely high tolerance for the drug.

    But right now I just want to get high. However, my main concern is how long will it last, and will I be wide awake for the next 8 hours? I have class at 10. I don't care how long the high will last, I just want to make sure I won't be wide awake until 6am.

    So I guess I just want to know....If I snort my Adderall XR (20mg) (and I have a really high tolerance) right now, how long will I be wide awake?

    Thank you very much.

    Cheers
    I take 20 mg XRs everyday, I drink about half a fifth of whiskey every night. Yes I'm an alcoholic. Who cares. So being drunk while on Adderall isn't really anything new to me

    • ANSWER:
      The only difference between Adderall and Adderall XR are the inactive ingredients. The extended release version contains a slowly dissolving filler material which gradually releases the active ingredients, d-amphetamine and l-amphetamine, as it disintegrates.

      How long the drug will last when you snort it depends on how will you crush it up. A finer powder creates more surface area, allowing the mass to dissolve into your system faster. I have never tried insufflating the extended release tablets, however the original pills always kept me up for around two to four hours with a 30 milligram dose taken this way. 20 milligrams isn't a very substantial dose of amphetamine, so I would guess that even with the extended release material you wouldn't be stimulated for any longer than this.

      Just as a tip, if the filler material is too waxy to insufflate, the next best thing would be to mash it up and soak it under your tongue.

  37. QUESTION:
    How can you lower your adderall tolerance other than by stopping taking it?
    Last night I took too much adderall so I could stay up with my friend. Now my tolerance has gone up and it doesnt work as good. How can I make it work without not taking it. If your sure that there is no way then how long would I have to not take it for it to work better?

    • ANSWER:
      Lowering a tolerance can be tricky, no matter what you will possess some tolerance despite any efforts. However I would suggest either, yes, lowering the dosage gradually, or spacing the time between other doses greater. One important thing to consider while on Adderall is avoiding very acidic foods or drinks, enough Citric Acid (found in Orange Juice) can dramatically decrease the effectiveness of the medication, so just use water to take it. That's why Antacids interact with Adderall because more of it can be absorbed. My final advice is to take Magnesium supplements (usually 1 pill per day), I have heard that this also apparently prevents your tolerance from getting so high.

  38. QUESTION:
    How can I rejuvenate myself after a night of ZERO sleep because of Adderall!?
    I have just started taking Adderall for my ADHD and after I took my prescribed amount, I had very much trouble falling asleep. I felt a little tired yet I could not fall asleep. What should I do to avoid sleepless nights? And also the next day after no sleep I felt weird not sick but not a good feeling. I can't explain it. What can I do to help myself fall asleep better? And is there a way to make Adderall less strong? because one dose lasted 13hrs! thats really long. I thought its only effective for about 5 or 6? any help would be much appreciated

    • ANSWER:
      my husband takes this also and at first he had the same problem with this, at first. he takes it 3 times and day and he has learned what time to take them so he is not up all night. you have to learn how to stagger your doses, start early in the am.

  39. QUESTION:
    which would be better to take, a 10 mg of adderall or a can of red bull?
    i need to study & cram for a test that is in a few hours, should i take the adderall (it is only 10 mgs, long lasting & so it takes longer to start taking effect..) or the can of red bull (12 oz)

    i have a perscription for adderall, i have ADD but i only have 1 left.. & also , i know that if u drink red bull when taking adderall it makes the effect less.

    so which should i do?

    • ANSWER:
      I'd say drink some tea--hot cold or room temp--& keep on chugging that tea, so you can study. By tea, I mean green, white, black, red, or oolong. I hope that helps, & most of all, don't panic. Try to stay calm.

  40. QUESTION:
    I want to get off adderall and take Phentermine?
    I have been on adderall since I was 14 for ADHD, I am now 27. I have 2 children, so of course, I quit taking it during my pregnancies but got back on it after. I would be lying if I didn't say I got back on it to help with weightloss and energy after my children were born. I obviously was prescribed the medication to help with focusing from jr high thru college. It's definitely hard (at first) when you quit taking it because your body is dependent on the chemicals. I still have 8 more lbs to lose from my 2nd child (6 months old). Almost everybody I talk to says they gain weight as soon as they quit taking adderall. Definitely don't want to gain weight period, but especially since I'm not back to my pre-pregnancy size.
    I want to see if I still "need" adderall and the only way to find out is to quit taking it. My endocrinologist prescribed me Phentermine already! I personally think that is crazy that he did that and I am smarter than that to take both adderall and phentermine, needless to say, I haven't even opened the bottle of phentermine. I have two young children, not looking to die anytime soon! He told me to take the Phentermine and ONLY take the adderall when I felt like I needed to. Now, ready for all my questions?! :)

    1.) How long should I be off adderall before I start taking the Phentermine?...Should I get off the adderall slowly (half the dose, then a 1/4 of the dose, etc) OR can I quit taking adderall today and start taking the phentermine tomorrow?

    2.)How will the Phentermine make me feel, compared to how adderall makes me feel? (will it give me energy?, will there be the same effects in the evening when my adderall is wearing off?)

    3.) SInce I have been on adderall for so long I really don't feel like it has much to do with my weight-loss. Mostly, it supresses my appetite and gives me energy to workout. (Did I mention I gained 60 lbs each pregnancy? lol...but I am a workout finatic and that's what I contribute most of my wieght-loss to. I do mod-high level cardio 5 days a week and weight training when I can. So my question is, Will I see a weight -loss benefit from switching to phentermine to help with my last 8 lbs?

    4.) If I find out I don't need the adderall anymore for ADD and I take the Phentermine for a period of time, when I quit taking the Phentermine will I gain weight?

    5.)Is this the same stuff as, "phen-phen"? I rememeber so many law suits because it caused heart damage.

    Thank you all in advance for your answers and guidance. Please don't answer back with, "ask your doctor". I know that would be the logical answer but considering he prescribed me phentermine with adderall, I would like to hear what other people have to say. Thanks again!

    • ANSWER:
      ADHD is often treated using conventional prescription medications. Ritalin and the other ADHD stimulant medications have sparked a great deal of controversy. Often seen as an easy 'quick fix' they are prescribed to treat symptoms but not the underlying cause of ADHD.

      Often people feel that by researching alternatives to prescribed drugs, they are in some way neglecting their teen or loved one, and endangering their health. Ironically, side effects of these prescription drugs can seriously endanger a person's health.

      In fact, investigating the possible side effects and long-term impact of prescription drugs is almost certainly viewed as an act of love. Educating yourself on each of the prescription drugs used to treat ADHD is a necessity if you want to provide the safest treatment for yourself or for those you love.

      There are some difficulties in using stimulants to treat ADHD in adults. Stimulants are controlled substances, and it is not uncommon for adults (including teens) with ADHD to have or to have had problems with substance abuse.

      Short-acting stimulants may wear off quickly, and since adult patients administer the medication themselves but usually have problems with forgetfulness, consistency can be problematic with multiple-day dosing.

      While there is a place for prescription medication in certain cases of ADD, careful consideration should be taken regarding possible side effects (there are many!) and cautions.

      There are also alternative solutions for ADD and ADHD available. Making simple changes in diet, sleep, exercise, and routine can help. Even trying more involved approaches like incorporating relaxation therapies such as guided imagery, meditation techniques, or yoga can be beneficial.

      There are also many herbal and homeopathic remedies which can help maintain harmony, health, and systemic balance in the brain and nervous system, without side effects or sedation. These products are known for their supportive function in maintaining brain, nervous system and circulatory health, and well-being, while reducing or eliminating adult ADHD symptoms.

  41. QUESTION:
    Whats the best way to deal with adderall withdrawl?
    Hello. I am a miserable 21 year old female. About 7 months ago I started taking Adderall XR 30mg tablets. I do NOT have a prescription. My friend had a months worth of the prescription, didn't like it and was going to throw it away but instead I insisted I would take it and not to waste it (i lied and said i had a prescription). I took half a pill a day and within two weeks was up to 60-80mg a day. I now have to buy off street dealers and I take it every day. I screwed up and started taking this daily and now Im dependent on it. It doesn't give me euphoric feelings anymore like it did at first. Instead I have insomnia, anxiety, constant chest pain, depression, headaches, auditory delusions, slight hallucinations, and the list goes on, but however I feel like I cant function without it. I cant do anything without it, get out of bed, go to work, even to the bathroom at times!! and etc. I want to stop. More importantly I need to stop. But the side effects of withdrawl make it seem impossible to stop, especially right now with my new job. During withdrawl, I become almost "retarded". I cannot think, very slow mentally, moody, irrational, and most importantly EXTREMELY fatigued. All I want to do is sleep, with the occasional get up to go to the bathroom and eat everything in the kitchen. How long do these symptoms last? I just started a new job in which I love, and is very active. There is NO way Im going to be able to do this job and quit the drug and be that fatigued and lethargic. I become so weak and regular bodily movement becomes overbearing. Overdosing on Coffee is not going to even come remotely close to helping. (i already drink a lot with the adderall) I cant miss work, I just started there and I love it. I do NOT have insurance and have no money. Im behind on all my bills and I wont be getting medical insurance from my work for two months. Is there anything to help the withdrawl symptoms? Also Im scared of gaining weight if I quit. The only thing adderall has truly helped me with was by getting me to my ideal weight to model. Im also worried I will get in trouble, I know its illegal to take medication not prescribed. I can NOT go on like this, but with the withdrawl, I cant stop either. I have read that tapering off the drug helps, but I dont think I have the willpower. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated or even if you can only answer one of the few questions would be much obliged.
    detox sounds like a good idea, but wouldn't it cost thousands? I went to the hospital for a checkup on my throat (i had strep), and just the checkup alone cost 0. I have no insurance, no money. I recently went bankrupt thanks to a scam artist. Im scared of outrageous bills.

    • ANSWER:
      As a healthcare professional, i feel it necessary to inform you that it would be to your advantage to go o a detoxification unit of a hospital. Your Identity and confidentiality will be protected because everyone makes mistakes. While there you can also get help for your fear of gaining weight.

  44. QUESTION:
    Getting doctor to switch my meds (Vyvanse to Adderall)?
    Well right now I have a vyvanse prescription for ADD. It works well but lasts too long (12+ hours). Does anyone what I could say to my doctor so would switch me over to Adderall? I'm not going to tell him I can't sleep because he's most likely to give me sleeping pills or something. I hate them (They make me feel like **** the next day). He has lowered the dose but I'm still having the insomnia. They're pretty much the same thing but adderall only lasts for about 6-8.
    btw I have tried taking it earlier but I still can't get to sleep on time, I think I get it after the med wares off.

    • ANSWER:
      doctors like to prescribe vyvanse because it is hard to abuse it vs adderall which is easily abused.

      i highly doubt he will switch you to adderall. you would still have the same problem with insomnia. vyvanse only lasts 12 hours max. take it as soon as you wake up

    PLEASE HELP, do these two messages make any sense at all, they are from my ex-girlfriend?
    (This is a little long, but only takes two minutes to read, please give your advice-- I need to make a decision today. Thank You!)

    I broke up with my ex 5 months ago. She sends me a song on my cell out of the blue, then a few days later she sent this message to me on fb.

    "Distinguishing dreams from reality... knowing what is real & what is not, Is the second hardest task in life. The most difficult being accepting it.
    Is it possible for someone to brainwash themselves into believing the opposite of their founded reality? Because that's what I feel I have been doing to myself for a long time. Am I crazy? Do I in fact have BPD? Or have I simply been living in denial; refusing & unable to accept my own stupidity & broken dreams from the past? The last one makes the most sense (to me).
    "If I am me & you are who you say you are... then I am you & you are me".
    I learned a lot from you... you taught me a lot about myself. That means something to me & I hope I have done the same for you.
    June 6, 2011: I took Adderall for the last time. I know that may not sound like much of an accomplishment considering I have many more issues to overcome, but I had to start somewhere."

    Then we exchanged messages for the next few days... she sent me this last message that doesn't seem at all why she messaged me... if she wanted to say what she wrote in the last message... why didnt she say it to begin with? Here is that message...

    "
    Basically, Bill, I just wanted to check in with you, Say hi & see how you were. I get the feeling sometimes that you're not okay & it bothers me to ignore my instinct. I also know you wanted me to let you know if I was thinking about you too otherwise you wouldn't have displayed your phone # for all to see. 
    Honestly, I'm not really into discussing all our faults & fails. We both know what happened & although our opinions & versions may be different, the end result remains.
    I've been trying not to overthink things these days. It only drove me crazy & created havoc. I was just hoping to check in with you to make peace & try to create a friendship. **** the rest. Who cares. What's done is done... it can't be altered or changed. Life is too short. Right your wrongs & live for today. Right??
    I am sorry for ever hurting you. That was NEVER my intention. In fact my intentions were to heal your hurt & make you happy. To make you feel loved, wanted & accepted. I'm sorry I failed. I really am. Please know I am sincere in saying that. Know that someone (me) found you worthy, believed In you & genuinely cared about you. Okay?
    Wake up tomorrow with those words in your head & every day there after. Because you deserve to be at peace... how else will you ever find total happiness?
    Enjoy your summer & this hot weather. And be safe!

  48. QUESTION:
    weight loss and adderall?
    i'm prescribed adderall xr 30mg once a day.
    when i started the medicine almost 2 months ago i was 115lb, now i'm down to about 104-106lb.
    i do love how i look now, but i do not want to lose any more weight, i dont want to get under 100lb, that seems unhealthy, even though i'm only 5'1"
    i just have trouble eating enough during the day. i need to time my medicine and breakfast so i will have food in me, but not decrease the effectiveness of the adderall.
    i wake up at 8, leave the house at 8:40 to be at work by 9, and i am so rushed in the morning i dont have time to sit down and eat breakfast so i usually either skip it, grab a smoothie from mcdonalds, or pop a waffle in the toaster and eat in the car.
    i've tried to wake up earlier to make breakfast, i set my alarm early, then in the morning i press snooze and tell myself ill eat a waffle again.

    does anyone have any tips for me for timing medicine and breakfast to be able to eat it before the med kicks in and i cant eat anymore, but not decreasing the effectiveness of the med? and i have to take the adderall by 9am.

    also, are there any quick breakfast ideas that are actually good for you, good to eat with adderall, and filling? something i can eat in the car?

    any suggestions would be helpful, thanks

    Additional Details
    fruit is a good idea, but i thought fruit lessens the effects of the medicine? i was told not to drink orange juice for that reason around when i take the adderall. sucks, cause i love orange juice in the morning.

    i started on 20mg IR, but only lasted until about 1pm. then i get spacey and unmotivated again. i had the same exact eating problem on 20mg as 30mg. now it just lasts longer, but the xr is doing better for me other than eating.

    also, in my line of work, we dont get a lunch break. we find our own time to eat, and if we are busy, we dont eat. so it makes it even harder to make sure i eat enough during the day

    • ANSWER:
      fruit juice can either reduce or increase the effect of medication - I think it is something to do with the enzymes in the fruit juice with the metabolism of the meds and their by-products (which is why you must never drink grapefruit juice with meds = increased side effects)

      how about making sandwiches for breakfast before you go to bed and leave them in the fridge overnight - they are just as easy to eat in the car as waffles
      ie marmelade or peanut butter etc

      if you make sandwiches on frozen bread and leave them in the fridge overnight they will have defrosted by lunchtime and no they will NOT be soggy - strange but true!

  49. QUESTION:
    One dose of adderall, for the first time and the last time...?
    I have a very important and long exam next week (for around 5 hours) and I want to be fully focused, I'm planning to have before the exam couple of protein bars and one dose of adderall (I don’t want to drink coffee cause I know it will make me want to pee, and this is really bad for the exam)... this is the first time I've ever had adderall, how much do you think the adderall dose should be to pass the exam with fully energized and focused and clear mind… and when exactly before the exam? My exam at 1 pm. Thank you…

    • ANSWER:
      Bad decision! Some people have bad reactions to amphetamines and you could end up having a lot of unpleasant adverse reactions such as sweating, nervousness, anxiety, difficulty concentrating, and frequent urination and bowel movements. They stimulate the body in every way including that! Unless you have used these kind of powerful drugs before, I would not advise it for something this important! Really the best advice is to get a GOOD nights sleep and than you will be in your right mind, sober, alert, and focused. Drugs cannot produce this! About the only thing I can think of that's good for that sort of thing is driving long distances (without enough sleep). In that case it would be better to be wired up, than wreck your car or rig! Also they are good for ADHD or for obese people trying to lose weight!

  50. QUESTION:
    Why am I so depressed?! I really need help please read!!!!!!!!!?
    To make a long story short, last week I started taking 20 mg a day of adderall. When I first started taking it, it made me feel a lot happier than I usually was and gave me a lot of energy. I have read about side effects of adderall while taking it, but I never had any symptoms while actually taking it. I took my last adderall on Friday and on Saturday I found out that I was pregnant. I never got upset and I was completely happy Saturday and Sunday, but Sunday night I started feeling really weird and Monday I woke up depressed and have been very depressed ever since. Not only am I depressed, but I feel really weird. I feel like I am loosing my mind, or that Im not in the right state of mind. IM not really sure what is wrong with me. I looked up adderall and what withdrawals from it could do to you, but Im not sure if it is from the adderall or hormones from me being pregnant. I am only 3 weeks pregnant and I only took adderall for a week. I am really scared. I cant even go on with my everyday life routine or anything. I cant even think straight and I dont care about anything or feel like doing anything? What is causing this and what can I do to make it better?!?!

    • ANSWER:
      you don't need to worry. you only took a little bit. when you go to your first prenatal visit with your OB they will help put your mind at rest.

Learn To Last Longer In Bed Naturally

Why do i cum so fast during sex?
Why can't i control my ejaculation?
How can i last longer in bed?
These are common questions and all can be sorted out very quickly.

Take controll NOW at THE EJACULATION TRAINER

As many as 65% of the male population have at some time in their lives had trouble with early ejaculation. So you are not alone. But don't worry, there are lot's of ways to get rid of this problem.
To learn how to delay ejeculation we must first find out why it happens and what it does to the body.

The fact is that all early ejaculation is in the mind, it is basically worrying about how you will perform in bed e.g. when a man has worries about:

- how long do i have left until ejeculation.
- how quickly are my arousal levels growing.
- am i a very good a lover in bed.

Those are just a few examples. Luckily, there are two ways to overcome the problem and stop early ejaculation.

QUICK FIXES.

The first is to use what I call quick fixes. These are various methods that allow you to do something about your problem TONIGHT. An example is a delay spray.

Some people dismiss these methods as inferior but I strongly believe that these methods are useful for the complete beginner and can help him to get back some of his lost confidence.

Take controll NOW at THE EJACULATION TRAINER

LONG TERM CURES

Those methods already mentioned are useful for the complete beginner who wants to learn how to delay ejaculation. But eventually you should move on to what I call "long term cures".

This is a period of training or acclimatization over a period of a few weeks. When this training is over, your performance anxiety disappears. Because your mind has been "fixed" in this way then your body follows and you develop what is called "total ejaculatory control" - an ability to ejaculate when YOU choose to do so.

Are you sexually frustrated and ejaculating early during sex? Get all the secrets you need to know and make a start tonight.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Help! My partner abuses me verbally...?
    It's less than a week away from our traditional Chinese wedding ceremony. Should be very happy right??

    Hardly true. I have tried for more than 2.5 years to live with the belittling comments. Apologies come and tempers cool...yet it's still happening. A few weeks ago I moved out of home overnight (returned the next day) and during this time started to talk to a female colleague. I told a couple of mates that I really liked her and kept on looking for an apartment to stay in while i tried to sort out my confused and hurt feelings. After seeing how much I hurt my fiancee (yes she found about the work colleague and how I was still trying to find another apartment), we sat down and talked for hours and worked things out. Why did I keep looking for apartments? Becuase 24 hours after I came back home, she got so angry at me taking too long in the shower (she had to work very early the next morning) she found it a good idea to violently throw a drink all over me including throwing the bottle at me. Things settled though and she went out of her way to buy nice clothes for me and after more discussions, she agreed to change more. Mind you, I moved out the first time because she stayed out so late with a group of people in the ktv (getting drunk). A guy had called her for golf and then ktv. I didn't know it was a mix of guys and girls.

    We took a one month holiday to her hometown and that has been what we need. We have adressed many issues and what is and is not acceptable behaviour.

    Problem, she disguises her behaviour as joking. Tonight she got very upset because I wouldn't let her delete some girls from my chat list - these were just friends and people I had met at one time or another and occassionally we would exchange a simple hello online. But she doesn't trust me after the recent incident of the work colleague. I vowed to add some of them back. She got angry and said: fine in Australia I will have lots of opportunities and will hang out with the men, you are a dog, if I find out you f****** other women I will cut your .... off (she is my first gf and I have been 100% loyal to her although I wonder why because she always hits me with the false accusation of sleeping around - about the only person to think so), you can't last long in bed, I am bored of you, go an taste other girl's p****** etc. Oh and she always rounds it off with, get out of my house (even though it's never her house...) and go back to our home city or back to Australia. Her attitude is: if you aren't happy, you can leave.

    Very upsetting. I try to joke back but it's a bit difficult. I feel like it's a form of narcissism or that I am being unfairly subjected to abuse. Cold feet is a possibility though I would have to dodge the wrath of a very large family and community who have organised so much...would have to be a very fast escape from the country.

    Important note, whilst we match in many many ways, there are some qualities which I have found I would never had thought I could stand in a woman - esp. the foul language. I am trying to change her with limited results.

    Her mother was abused and an abuser. She always argues and attacks her husband. Her husband would retaliate in the past (when my fiancee was a child) by beating the wife's head against the wall and other physical abuse.

    As much as we learn from our parents (we covered this in our discussions), I think children brought up in dysfunctional families don't always end up damaged or mirroring their parents. I did learn something though: I used to get so upset with my fiancee that I often grabbed the suitcase and threw my clothes in it (maybe once every 3-4 months). After a few hours I would unpack it. I learnt this from my parents who often did such actions (or walked away from each other for a few hours until they cooled down). They didn't often argue and certainly didn't turn physically violent. So, naturally I hate conflict and can't stand feeling put down. I hate it so much. I am so easy-going.

    One comment has cut to the bone - telling me I can't last long enough in bed. Actually, she just lies there and often says and does things that cause me to lose the feeling and get turned off. Do I have to think of my wife like a piece of meat and go at her all night to satisfy her? She runs out of energy and says she's bored which in turn has caused me to feel anxiety and unable to perform. I wish she could be like before - when she was supportive and encouraging.

    The fortune teller told us that we would only last 10 years of marriage and she would meet someonen else and divorce me. Might end up the other way around. Thank god I have 5 more months until our legal marriage in Australia.

    • ANSWER:
      Do you wish to live with her for extra 10years?
      Do you wish to have your kids live with a mother like that?
      Can she make your life easier, make you a better man, give some efforts to build a family?
      Sex is important of course, you can't live a healthy life if you have bad sex.

      You don't have to endure your partner.
      Always go for the better girl, better life, better future.
      Grow up.

  2. QUESTION:
    psychic clairvoyant: is there anyone on my level? untrained clairvoyant by result of car accident at age 11.?
    i have the ability to remote view objects, places, and people. i also have the ability to influence people's thoughts and actions by speaking in my head and talking to them as if i were speaking out loud. i can do this from outside a room. i can also pick up things that will happen well before they do, sometimes moments before. very specific things though. nothing as vague as, the light will turn green NOW. though that's easy to do sometimes. here's my story.

    i was 11. i'm 27 now. my birthday was december 10. i knew as soon as i darted out across the street (in a crosswalk) that the second lane on the left had a speeding car that would hit me. i was racing my grandmother home from a school event. i was on foot. she was in a car. she didn't know i was doing this of course. we lived across the street from the school. anyway, a lot of things started happening after that. the car was travelling at 35 mph and i busted the windsheild up good. i was unconcious for a short amount of time, and after a ambulance trip to the er, the doctors concluded i only had a concussion. no skull fracture or heavy bleeding, bruising of any kind. not sure how that works.

    i remember when i was coming to, all the people on the sidewalk were hovering over me, scared, which scared me. i've used this experience to learn how if we radiate a feeling or a thought, at any intensity, it will resonate through other people, and objects, near us at the same, or maybe slightly lower, frequency. giving the same emotion and even thought. it's simple. like when a bell is struck at a church. the resonance will chime any other bells within the range of the frequency.

    since this near death experience, which left me with the weirdest feeling of disconnect for weeks, and maybe years later. i am no longer scared of the feeling. i barely remember it now. i just know that as a result, i became more sensitive to things than i had been before. also since this accident, i have suffered 4 more serious concussions. the most recent of which was may of 2009 while visiting japan. i am a manic bi-polar with bouts of pschizophrenia which have now subsided to at least some degree, having become more aware of what were delusions and what were realites over the last few years. i had a panic attack in an udon noodle house after drinking some sake. i had just started taking medication (although i fit somewhere in between dealing with things naturally or holistically to medication, and vise versa) and i became very drunk fast. i then became paranoid the alcohol combined with the medecine was going to kill me. i ran to the bathroom to alert my friend who was in a stall and he assured me i was not going to black out. last thing i remember was standing at the sink. i woke up, same as the car accident, with all my friends on the trip hovering over me yelling my name. i was coming in and out of cloudy conciousness which was even more scary. so that was the most recent concussion. that one did split my head open. fall, like the car, should have killed me too, recalling from where i fell.

    i have a lot of stories having to do with my continual sensitivtiy. i become more so each year i feel. i abused marijuana (yes, you can abuse marijuana) for 4 years. i had never tried it til i turned 23, and i went to town. the psychotropic paired with this sensitivity set me off the deep end. and into deep paranoia and delusion. i was having weird experiences with a girl in 2009. we had the most physical connection i had ever felt. and i've only ever had two girls including her. i realized that things i thought about, she thought about the same time. but constantly. soon, i realized she would act on actions i would. we were at disneyland, and i was paranoid i was dying, and were both going to die. our resonance was so great that i would see lights when we were close enough, laying down in bed. this happened only a handful of times. naturally my mind wanted to know more, but it was invasive. she was 21, i was 25. she didn't know the things i did. i've travelled the world, met every kind of person i feel. they have all helped me. i have absorbed pieces of all of them. i am completely open. but i feel i am more open than anyone. back to the girlfriend story. i started experimenting with this ability to tell people what to do, simply by focusing my attention on them and speaking to them in my head. sure enough, she did everything i told her to. 'walk forward. in 5 yards turn left around this trash can. stop at the bench in front of the fireworks.' and so one from there. but it was very invasive like i said. my perception of reality would shift completely during these experiments. awful experiments that would lead me to deep into my own head and harm others who would come near me. sadly it still happens, and i've had to learn when to remove myself from situations. because i am not in control of this anymore.

    i have a lot more to t

      To the best of my knowledge there are no living humans who are "on the level" described in your text. Not to say that many would rather go public should they find themselves in such a situation.
      On a related subject you may enjoy reading about Peter Hurkos. In the eyes of some he has been discredited, but not in everyone's eyes. His tale is one of a Dutch house painter who fell off his ladder and suffered a brain injury. Afterward Hurkos claimed he had ESP abilities.

  3. QUESTION:
    How do I help her figure out what she wants to do?
    So I got out of the shower this morning, and walked past my mum's room. She was laying on the bed sobbing, and naturally I went to find out what was wrong. The floodgates opened and she was crying for a long while, telling me everything which is wrong in her life. This is the third time this year that it has happened and I'm freaking determined to sort it out once and for all. Last time it happened, I helped her compile a list of every aspect she wanted to change, and then prioritise them, and discuss how we would tackle each issue. Not a lot has been done since then unfortunately.

    One big problem is the fact that she wants perhaps a career change. She's an estate agent, and as you know, the housing market, is, well, dire at the moment and the likelihood is that she won't have a job if it isn't a successful January. So I've been talking to her as to how to sort that, and I made a few suggestions, and one of the better ones was a home-learning course or something like that. However, she has now said she has absolutely no idea what she wants to do; nothing seems to appeal to her.

    So, I'm asking you guys if you have any suggestions as to how I can help her figure out what to do. I'm just so scared for her. She's 52, living in a rural area where there are few jobs, and she has no confidence whatsoever, and petrified of the future now my brother's moved out, and I'm but a year or two from flying the nest also.

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    • ANSWER:
      I don't know what you're talking about. The housing market has been great for me in the past 6 months. Managed to buy a 0k home for 000 (waterfront in a city). It'll be paid for in 3 years.

      What about getting her in to a trade. People will always need tradesmen. The HVAC sector is severely under manned and it's not too difficult of a job (monitor this, change that, install this, charge that). I'm in HVAC and I make quite a bit a year.

  4. QUESTION:
    Will someone please proof-read my narrative essay?
    I know it is sort of long (almost 1.5 pages), but i really need feedback. Is it boring? need more details? what should i add? it is a narrative essay so yeah:
    I wonder sometimes what life would be like if I never took anything for granted. How grateful I would be all day, all week. Each Monday would no longer symbolize a feeling of pressure and the start of a long school week, but instead a new beginning. Each Monday you feel grateful for living through another day of your life, being able to take full advantage of what is offered for you. If I never took anything for granted, that also would mean there would be fewer surprises. Each day you have electricity, if you think how lucky you are that it is working, and then the one day it is turned off, you think how lucky you were to have it. Christmas mornings were always happy events with family and friends getting together, and I never realized what a big part family plays. But at a younger age, naturally, I saw Christmas as a time for presents and candy.

    Living in forest knolls, my electricity was cut fairly often during rainstorms, sometimes as long as three days. I would mistakenly walk by a light switch and click it waiting for the light bulb to pop to life. Once nothing happened though, I would realize how much I really liked that light bulb. I actually loved that lamp, and would practically give an arm for it back. When the electricity came back on though I would walk by and maybe think “well finally PG&E fixed it”, and that would be that. There was no moment of gratitude for everything I do have.

    I remember some nights when my parents got home late and I was already in bed, hearing them talking and laughing. They would turn on the TV and not understand how loud it was. Or maybe they thought it was at a reasonable volume. I could hear their muffled voices through my door. Dad’s low mumble and Moms higher pitched jumble of words. Both of them sounded like they were talking with a mouthful of marbles. It would keep me awake, but the nights I needed sleep I would get irritated. I’d holler through my door for them to keep it down, because I was trying to sleep. I’m sure on the receiving end, it also sounded as if I had a mouth packed with marbles. Begrudgingly they would oblige, turning the TV down to a low murmur. I miss these moments of hearing two voices through a door, the low mumble answered by a high one. These are the things I wish I appreciated more, and could see how much I would miss them if they never happened. I wish I could listen to that noise all night. Hearing it now would be more like a song to help me sleep and less of something I learned to tolerate. Sometimes lying in my bed I can hear a noise similar to this. Mom is upstairs with her ‘friend’ watching TV. I can hear the similar sound, and with the lights off and my eyes closed it really does sound like the noise I have missed. But something is different. Some noise is off and I can’t describe it. It might just be the knowing that this is not Mom and Dad upstairs. I’m not in my usual bunk-beds with my sister snoring away. Why didn’t I like her snore? I try to erase any bit of this sound by closing my door and putting pillows over my ears. I don’t want to try and replace this sound or forget the genuine one. This noise right upstairs is an imposter. Maybe one day, I will wish I appreciated this sound, but for now I can’t.

    Every Christmas time my family and I did basically the same thing. My sister and I would get awoken in the morning by our parents to find a living room full of excitement. We would un-wrap our gifts, taking pictures every three seconds because Dad is a photographer. This was always my favorite holiday. I would stare into that fire; listen to the cracks and pops and hiss. I would smell the smoke, practically taste it in my hot chocolate. Last years Christmas was a time I will remember and appreciative forever. It was the last time Mom and Dad were in a room together while being civil. They even exchanged gifts. I knew this would be the last time things would seem normal in my house. It was like watching an endangered animal die. What could I do to help it? But at the same time, being so grateful for the times we had together. It was a bitter sweet moment. This was the best Christmas I ever had. It was like living in the past, present, and future all at the same time. I remembered the past and anticipated the future, but was happy for where I was right at that moment. I look at last years photograph often. They are stuck in time, and when I look at them it is as if nothing has changed. The furniture is the same, the people are the same, but the moment and feelings were completely different. The pictures can not depict this. They show smiling faces with a beautiful tree in the background.

    • ANSWER:
      I wonder how old you are.
      That was very nice. You held my attention (even when my favorite show is on tv) - it made me a little sad and made me smile. Nicely done.
      At first I thought is was a little redundant - you kind of repeated the same sentence, just put it in different order - but that was okay, too. It gave it some charm.
      Say goodbye to childhood and welcome to becoming an adult.
      And I don't think you take things for granted - which is something adults do all the time. Never lose that - it is VERY VERY important to appreciate everything. (I appreciate my electricity A LOT!)
      Good job.

  5. QUESTION:
    I have felt suicidal almost every day for over 5 years. Is there a way out of this?
    Am I on a slippery slope to eventually doing it, which terrifies me.

    Or am I one of those people who is going through some kind of "spiritual initiation" and will eventually get through it and wake up and learn to love life and teach others?

    Or, am I just going to learn to tolerate the depression and live a sort of half-life until I die naturally, never really achieving my full potential, but not actually killing myself? In some ways that is more terrifying and humiliating for me than just dying.

    Whoever said it's a "permanent solution to a temporary problem" has obviously never been suicidal for very long. More like "a temporary solution [takes a few hours] to a permanent problem [life of pain]". I can't remember ever being happy or even not depressed for an extended period. All those self-help websites ("depression is easily treated; see a professional") are too simplistic and incredibly patronising. (Ignoring the obvious problems of the enormous shortage of decent psychotherapists, 3-month waiting lists, and the fact I don't have 0/hr, it's going to take a bit more than a weekly chat with some person I don't even know).

    I am not actively suicidal every day (i.e. thinking of doing it), but I have suicidal ideation most days. I just cannot motivate myself to live now and I waste most days doing nothing. I don't have the energy to either live or die. And this is for me worse than being dead. I want to either go out now with a bang, or live a full and rich life and be somebody. But I can't shake this existential cloud of apathy off me, or this nagging sense of the absurdity of the world. Part of the absurdity stems from knowing that I could die tonight, and in the absence of God it all seems pretty ridiculous, considering I've lived such a crappy life up to now. How can I start changing things with the constant possibility of death hanging over, which would annul all my efforts? Does that sound stupid?

    Every so often I get a spurt of energy and I get obsessed with personal development and try and change my life. I really think "this is it! I'm out of the woods now. I've grown strong through enduring and my life is about to get on track." That last a few weeks and then something happens to set me back again.

    Every so often I get a spurt of energy and I really think I'm going to go through with it. That also lasts a few weeks. Then I get very close to doing it (I have taken a few overdoses before), but I always chicken out at the last minute because of my family (almost the only reason I am still here), and also because deep down I guess I feel I've come so far and to just throw away my potential kind of pisses me off. I want to see what I can do. Except up to this point I haven't really achieved anything other than years of feeling miserable. I also cling on naively to some kind of spiritual reality tot he Universe, but find this almost impossible to believe in living as I do in an aggressively secular society.

    In between these two poles I am just stable, but mostly too depressed to get out of bed or do anything with my life.

    This has gone on for quite a few years. I am actually bored of being suicidal. I used to self-harm a lot but that has become boring too. I guess I should laugh at how absurd this all is.

    Anti-depressants don't cure this.
    Alcohol only numbs you for a few hours, and you can't get drunk every day.
    Sleeping is the best option, but you can't sleep forever. And it is incredibly boring living like this.
    Exercise is nice if you actually have the energy to get out the house. It makes your body feel slightly fresher for a few hours but doesn't affect the underlying emptiness.

    I know this is brought on by both existential and psychological factors. But I am essentially an atheist and I can't see that changing for a while much as I would like to believe in God (before you tell me, I know "Jesus loves me"/"Islam is the Truth" etc.).

    Thanks for any advice.

  6. QUESTION:
    Why is he acting like this !?! I knew I was gonna regret it.?
    This weekend I seen this dude I've been wanting to talk to for like 2 months now. We met at a get together and were hitting it off great! We exchanged numbers but didnt end up talking because my friend snaked me and tried to hit on him behind my back (long story, thats another story lol). We talked on twitter and he told me that she did (I already knew before he told me) and that he wasnt interested in her but interested in me but didnt hit up me or her because he wanted to stay out of it. Plus he just got into a relationship. This all was 2 mo ago. So I see him this past saturday, randomly, we hit up a party together and go back to his place. Now..I KNOW not to go back to a dudes place after the party if Im not with doing anything,but the farthest I really wanted to go was just down on him. As soon as we hit his room his hands are on me and were making out. He told me he broke up w. his gf a while ago she was a "mistake". I said why didnt u hit me up, he said he didnt wanna make me feel like a rebound. I told him that I didnt wanna go all the way, but he really "needed it". Now keep in mind I was REALLY feelin him, and Im not naive by any means and had been monogamous for about 2 yrs and hes my 2nd 1 nite stand. I just was like f* it whatever. We had good sex, yes. He dropped me off and gave me a "goodmorning" kiss and told me he'll call me the next day. The next day he text me goodmorning and called me and we had a good hour long conversation. then...BOOM he fades me. Monday I call him at like 6pm, no answer. I send a text at like 1130, he doesnt respond till 1230 and I freakin missed it but i respond at 130 no answer. We have small talk via text on tuesday. I said I wanted to chill and he said wanna come over Im like yea, cause I really wanna put it on him (btw I was under the influence when we hooked up, which influenced my descion to sleep with him) and me being drunk I was...blah in bed. Then he texts me later saying come over tomorrow which would have been wednesday. Now, he did tweet that he was tired and told me he was so I wasnt trippin. So I text at 330pm on wed whats good for tonight and NO ANSWER. Naturally, Im freaking out...and I hate thinking Im annoying to keep hitting someone up so I exhaust my last attempt and call at 10pm and NO f* ANSWER. Todays thursday and no call/text from him. Im going CRAZY right now because like I said i've been monogamous for a while (not in a relationship, it was an NSA relationship for a while, another tangent story) and it only took me one time to let a dude get sex from me and not call me again for me to learn my lesson, and it was THE WORST FEELING IN THE WORLD, i try to avoid that feeling at all cost it really burns and hurts and I feel cheap and low. If this dude would have just never called the next day and I never would have called him I would be so cool right now, no problemo, erase him from my memory. BUTNO, he wants to play mind games and act talk stuff like he was really feelin me and then not try to hit me back. Im very picky about consistency and falling through with what you say. So now I need advice. I really hate putting myself out there, cause Im sensitive. After getting that play-by-play is he playing with me or you think hes sincerely busy? He told me he wanted me even when we first met (we have lots of mutual friends, he was my friend on facebook and twitter before we met and he would always like my photos and statuses) and we had a good time on saturday and a good convo on sunday why hasnt he gotten back to me. My guy friend thats a player, told me he PURPOSELY calls the next day to make sure the girls cool to "keep her on deck" and then when he knows shes comfortable thats when he'll just put her on his time. Maybe he did that to me -___-
    Im not looking to jump into a serious relationship with anyone right now. Im just starting from square one which is finding someone real, you get along with and are sexually attracting to simutaneously. Basically, someone to be my main, and potential serious boyfriend. Im tired of going on date after date I just wanna chill. Idk if thats hard to swallow. If we ever do talk again thats what I wanna tell him, so how do I put that in lamens terms? Do yo think he'll call me again?
    I've officially decided I'm not gonna call/text him again and deleted his thread from my texts and call history, but not his number...I just dont wanna think about him. PS: all the times he hasnt texted back his tweets have been popping up... FROM HIS iPHONE!).

  7. QUESTION:
    What would you call the period after your divorce?
    It took 25 yrs to learn that from meeting my husband, age 14, he was being defended in a divorce: by mother's with sons , people competing with agendas,
    father's with sons, minorities & last but not least, a lawyer or a psychiatrist? I did not marry with the intent of divorcing. My religion saw divorce as a last resort. Several times during our divorce he said he wanted out. I said o.k. He would not file. One attorney said all divorces were no fault, which is what my husband said he wanted. I did not file, but told him what was said. He did not divorce me.

    I am not mocking the wonderful events called "Special Olympics." My chemistry teacher in college worked in those with the psych teacher,. both of different religions than I. But....I would call my divorce & the ensuing perpetual nightmare "special ". Their obsession with how they got the best of me has never ended. I am not attorney minded. The theme was the lady said "Never throw away the meat.": Crude. There was no possibility of reconciliation. Everything humanly possible was done to make me beg him back. I was insulted every way humanly possible.
    I left the home which was in arrears when he left. taking what he wanted from the house.I was not planning a div. I tried to work in my new career. My divorce attorney did not counsel me iwhatsoever. I think my divorce was arranged previously,, like that special file they had set up for me b4 I to the counseling center where I was ordered to go
    because I filed complaints. I was given a special boards, seemed like it was made of
    ECGs I had no copy of boards or any other NLNs or nursing tests, nor help from anyone.I did not find nursing hard, not the subject matter, it was the 'politics' as someone said. I did not make fun of HIV. You do not have all the FACTS. Don't read into that.I am hetero. Being gay is not a sex act.
    They drew up sides. I am not one to connect everything, naturally. I was a light smoker then. When stressed, studying for exams/ My husband never objected to my simply "plucking" a cigarette from his shirt pocket, or getting a couple from him. I did not want to keep cigarettes, I fought cigarettes,& really get hooked. He was lying across the bed, not long b4 my graduation. This was not planned, it was not being manipulative. His legs were spread, feet flat on the floor, knees bent, lying on his back. I leaned over him to get a cigarette, sort of a "thing" we did, suddenly he grabbed his pocket, flexed his neck, set up really fast, butted me with his head on my brow bone. I had a cut,to the bone & a black eye. Now what am I going to do. I was not going to the dr. I tried to cover it with makeup. Since I always wore sunglasses when out, that helped, small ones. Had my old rx. glasses tinted, recycled. They won't do that here.. to save money. I said , it was an accident if they noticed, & what happened. It could not have been premeditated.. It "cut me no slack." if you think that, drop dead. I was not treated well over this. I did not mention it to the divorce lawyer due to thinking it was accidental. I am telling you if he had ever hit me,there would have been a fight to the death or one of us would have been really hurt,. even if I had to catch him asleep. I am not violent, I hate fighting,& arguing but I have a temper when attacked...not a good thing to have necessarily, but I cannot help it. I prefer fake violence and watch it , like crime shows, , where the good ones win. I am not a lover when mad, I am a fighter. More fun , right. I have NEVER, bullied or attacked anyone. I have fought back when provoked; the mugger, the abductor, the others.I need no meds for temper..

    Since I was 9, someone wanted a repeat/ Said I had sex when a child. The name of the game, I suspect, as a teen, give me VD in the mouth. . That was the act I was thought to have done. Did not. So, someone would try to give me something by kissing, if I had sex with another , they would get VD, I am caught. incriminated. I had a rash twice. Connected? I was not promiscuous. This involved trying to sue an MD for something he NEVER SAID,get Dad into trouble for something he never said. I did not cooperate. My grades did not go down, I honed in. I made better grades than reflected but they needed my grades to go down. I probably would have been really hurt had I ,made really good grades. I did not get to go to college, partly? due to this, out of hs. I was accused of many things I did not do ,or say ,at a crucial time,times, in my life.I wanted college, someone did not believe in higher ed for women. My Mom a minority, dark. I was lighter blonde.His too. Get rid of us.

    Part of my "special " period was 2 events. Close to court time, I was set up with a man:,kindly", older. I was set up on a job to string me through divorcing to make it look li
    I realize I am going out " on a limb" here. Not all of us have wonderful little support groups and family with influence, etc. If I can warn anyone, make them aware of the games people play, I want to. I was church oriented, a Christian. I did not get all this. I had almost every crisis a person can have going on in my life at divorce time. I called a crisis line and they told me to get lost, hateful as could be.There was no help from anyone. My divorce was prearranged...after all I was a new college grad, wanting to play where the big people played. I lost my career, and everything. I was not cheating in college in spite of efforts to make it look like that. There was no help to be had from me from anyone. It was all alone. I went to a number of lawyers whose them was how they got the best of me. Gloating, all men, but the one who flashed her butt in court, and threatened me. I had not done a thing wrong. My kids and I lost, big. Really big.

    Edit this please?!?! 10 points guarantee, won't take you a long time!!!!!!?
    I HAVE A SPEECH HERE AND CAN YOU JUST READ THE SPEECH AND JUST HELP ME EDIT OR CHANGE THE CONCLUDING PARAGRAPH (LAST PARAGRAPH) I HAVE IT WRITTEN OUT BUT I AM NOT SURE IF IT IS STRONG ENOUGH.

    Volunteering is very important and beneficial.

    Who here has either considered volunteering? Think about volunteering, what does it mean? Is it earning credits in order to graduate, or does it mean something else? To be honest, that is what it meant to me, until I did some more research. There has to be a reason why 40 hours of community service is required to graduate. Not many people know why, in fact many people think that it’s a waste of time. But there are many additional reasons why volunteering is good for the community but mostly good for yourself. Today, I’m going to tell you why volunteering is important, and why it is beneficial to you.

    How many people have asked their parents for the latest phone, IPods etc…? (pause) We are taking something from our parents. When it comes to giving, most people walk away. This is why volunteering plays an important role because this helps teens be more responsible and learn how to give as well as take.

    The interesting thing about volunteering is that you can choose what you’d like to volunteer for, out of a list provided by the board. Some schools will actually let you take a day or two off of school, to finish your community service requirements. Wouldn’t you rather go somewhere (whether it’s helping out at charities, reading stories to younger children etc…) then sitting in class doing homework, reading out of text books, or listening to lectures?

    Volunteering is a big step for the future, because right after you graduate High School, you have to think about what you’re going to do in the future. Are you going to college? University? To find a job? A career? It's your choice. Volunteering for something that interests you will not only help the community, but also yourself. It will help your confidence as you decide your future. For example: if you volunteer at a school that you used to attend, you may start to feel confident, and might consider becoming a teacher. You may never have planned on becoming a teacher, but volunteering could give you another opinion.

    While volunteering you would get to see the world, from a different perspective. There are so many organizations and hospitals that need volunteers; your volunteering experience could be vast. When Christmas is coming, there are many food drives where you donate food to the less fortunate. Do you really know what purpose you’re donating for? When you volunteer for a certain organizations; you would see the lives of others who use food banks. The lives of children that are terminally ill that lie on hospital beds etc… While Meeting with people and interacting with large varieties of people with various backgrounds and age groups. Thus, you are naturally developing an ability to be influenced by others, rather than your classmates. This will nurture patience, compassion, tolerance and understanding.

    Volunteering is not a waste of time. Just two months ago I volunteered at a New Year’s festival. Helping with games and activities. Time went by quickly, three hours felt like fifteen minutes. I had already volunteered for 3 hours in one day. But if 40 hours was spread over in 4 years, then you would only need to volunteer for 10 hours a year, less than 1 hour a month! When you think about it, it doesn’t take much time.

    No matter how you put community service, it is always better than sitting in class for seven hours doing work. The experience of volunteering is something that calculus, Shakespeare or science can teach you. Once you chose something you like to volunteer for, you will see that time will fly. So you must keep in mind that from the moment you start high school that volunteer is important and is beneficial to you!! Why? Because it teaches you the basic human qualities: love, care and compassion!

  9. QUESTION:
    What do you think of this story?
    At 4:30, Andy finally went to sleep and woke up around eight. He was one of those people who didn't need a lot of sleep. He just naturally woke up without a problem. The first thing he decided to do was check on Savannah. Outside of her bedroom, the door was slightly ajar. Either Savannah or Holly left the room. With a gentle knock, he opened the door. Across the room in her bed, Savannah laid fast asleep. Her iPod was stuck in her ears and her stuffed lion (Leonardo "Leo" da Vinci") was clutched in her arms.
    As he walked over, he could hear the soft hums of music coming from her earbuds. When he got to the foot of her bed, he heard the song "Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)" by Marvin Gaye. He smiled because he knew that listening to jazz helped her sleep. There would also be a sound machine that had four options of ocean, birds, crickets, and wind sitting on her nightstand. It was those two facts that revealed her the most.
    He sat on the edge of her bed and placed a hand on the part of the comforter that covered the small of her back. For a minute, he watched her. He watched the way he breast moved up and down whenever she took a breath. Her pretty eyelids fluttered as her body started to rouse. Just when he attempted to leave, she heard her voice recite his name in question.
    When he turned around, she was sitting up staring at him. Her blackish eyes were huge and her eyelids looked puffy.
    "What are you doing?" she said, chuckling a little.
    He sighed resignedly. "Just checking on you."
    She laughed musically. "So how long have you been here?"
    "Not long." he said, sitting back on her bed.
    She rubbed her eyelids and looked around the room for a minute. She looked as if she was trying to recall something important. But when she looked at him, her expression changed. On her face was now a look of worry.
    "Last night when you came---"
    "We don't have to talk about it." he offered.
    She smiled in relief. "Okay."
    They stared at each other for a moment. Andy noticed something that he hadn't noticed before. There was medium sized, gray circle around the left side of her forehead. Although it was faded, it was still prominent.
    "Hey, what's that?" he asked, touching the mark. "Did Will hit you there?"
    "Oh, no." Savannah said. "It's my birthmark."
    He stared at it for a moment. It hadn't been there before. At least not since he met her. Or had it? He didn't really notice that part of her face before, but now that he did, the mark seemed to have stuck out.
    "I don't know how it came back?" Savannah said, scooting over closer to Andy. "It was really conspicuous when I was a toddler. But it went away a couple of years later. Now all of a sudden it's come back. It's pretty funny, if you ask me."
    Andy smiled. There were so many things he was learning from Savannah. He wanted to know more about her. As if he didn't know enough about her. If Savannah didn't know a certain thing about her, Andy did. Like the way Savannah said certain words with a hint of a southern accent in her voice. Or the way she ate a candy cane from the top instead of the bottom. She had certain quirks about her that intrigued people.
    "That's weird." he laughed. "I've never heard of a birthmark that disappeared and then came back eleven years later."
    "Hey!" said Savannah. "You know your math!"
    Andy shoved her a little bit, sending her falling sideways on the end of her bed. She let out the laugh he liked very much. The laugh was contagious. Pretty soon he was laughing. And they were both guffawing into a fit of hysterics. Andy hadn't felt this happy in a long time. It actually felt good.
    Shortly afterward, Savannah became serious again. Her face stared at him broodingly. Just when he was about to ask her what she was thinking about, she spoke.
    "Andy?" she said, looking timid. "Why did you kiss me?"
    "What?" he managed.
    That caught him off-guard. He wasn't expecting her to ask him that. He was actually hoping she would forget the incident. But she didn't. She wanted to know why he had chose to kiss her twice.

  10. QUESTION:
    What should I do if I am feeling depressed ALL the time?
    So heres a bit of a story now-- I am almost 18 and growing up i had a very great childhood and i was a very happy child. The past 3 years of my life have been nonstop movement. Last year my dad cheated on my mom and left us. he then came back and we moved somewhere and tried to get a new life. While we were there needless to say my mom nor dad really fixed anything. My mom sort of became a "cold fish" so to say and became very emotionally detached to me and never really seemed to ever talked to me. I admit she tries to be good but she can never pull it together. After 7 months of this my parents went seperate ways. My mom, Little brother and I moved from CA to MO and my dad moved back to sweden (his home country). My mom had to get a job at a hospital that is 2 hours away from our house, so the days she works she lived there which leaves me at home taking care of my little brother by myself for half the week, every week. I miss my father SO much and needless to say i DO NOT fit in here. Not that i am not capable of making friends, ive always been good at that. But I just dont fit in and (as a genuinley curious person interested in learning) all of my classes are asbolutley terrible.

    Increasingly since the very first incident I have been feeling at a complete loss!! I can't concentrate (which i find most disturbing as i LOVE learning in my classes). Before this point I have been known as a very outgoing, smart, straight A, fun person. But I have a hard time doing any of this anymore. I work SOOO hard on being the person i used to naturally be! but I find myself sad ALL the time. I get sick to my stomach constantly. I get this feeling that I am bored and everything i try and do I get really weirdly randomly sad and its like it is painful no matter what i am doing. When I get in bed I sleep in FOREVER but this is not to say im actually sleeping. Most of the time it takes me a very long time to be able to sleep. I have trouble getting myself to eat. my concentration level in painfully low. I get REALLY sad at random times, for no reason I can think of. I get irritated VERY easily for no reason. And no matter how much i try-- Everything I used to find enjoyable, fun or the people I used to love hanging with, I just CANT do anymore. I have to put forth an extreme amount of effort to enjoy the good honest respectable fun i used to have all the time. I stress again that this ISNT the person i am. I have always been very loving and fun going person.

    I think what disturbs me the most is that i think that i MUST be depressed but I would never in my life (nor anyone close to me) would think i could possibly be like this. But i cant get away from the pain i feel EVERY night. I just feel so miserable all the time!! This is to also add that i have been shamefully suicidal at manymanymanymany times but i always get myself to walk away from it.. painfull so.

    I just need to know what to do. Everyone in my family would be horrified to hear these things because they still think of me as the person I used to be. My mom talks about how happy she is now that she has a bf and wat not... but i never feel happy and she doesnt notice it.. nor do i think she wants to. I just want to know what to do. I am such an ambitious person who has always had big goals ahead of me for my life... i dont want to end up one of those pity story adults.

    • ANSWER:
      What I think is that you need a (radical) change of environment for a while.Have you considered visiting your father for some time? Can you speak any Swedish?I am not familiar with the american educational system,I hope this isn't your big year that decides who gets to go to university,and who not.Sweden is a great country too, and travelling will completely change your world to the better (hey,you might never get the chance to visit Europe too, and I doubt you will find a better time than now to do so).And well,since you are unhappy there,what do you have to lose?

      Speaking to your mother about how you feel seems like something you must do too,suppressing your feelings for much longer won't do you (or her,or anyone else in your environment) any good.

      It won't do you any good being miserable, waiting for your problems to get fixed by themselves,go out there, get control of your life and live it.

      I wish you all the best,good luck.

Main Cause Of Premature Ejaculation

Millions of men throughout the world suffer from premature ejaculation, whether they know it or not. Also called premature climax, early ejaculation, ejaculation praecox, or rapid ejaculation, premature ejaculation occurs when a man loses voluntary control over his climax and ejaculates very quickly in a majority of his sexual encounters. This problem affects 25 to 40% of all men. According to Masters and Johnson, premature ejaculation is a problem if a man ejaculates before his partner in more than half of all sexual encounters.

Other definitions of premature ejaculation are slightly different. Many researchers have defined premature ejaculation as occurring when a man reaches orgasm within two minutes of penetration in 50% or more of all sexual encounters. In the 1950s, the renowned sex researcher Dr. Alfred Kinsey found that up to three quarters of all males are affected by premature ejaculation. Today's sex therapists see premature ejaculation as characterized by a lack of voluntary control over the male orgasm, which can greatly reduce sexual satisfaction, self-confidence and overall well-being in one or both sexual partners.
For years, premature ejaculation was regarded as a psychological problem. Today, we know this is not entirely true. It is a biological and mental problem, and it is related to erectile dysfunction. Fortunately, there is good news for those who suffer from this problem. Many different cures exist that are simple, easy and effective.

A main cause of premature ejaculation is extreme sensitivity to stimulation in many men. They simply cannot bear much sexual contact before losing control and reaching climax. There are a number of different creams which dull feeling in the penis, allowing these men to perform for longer periods of time. Also, multiple condoms can be used to inhibit feeling in the penis.

The problem with these methods is that they reduce the feeling of sex and the enjoyment of contact.

Fortunately, there are different methods you can use to prolong sexual contact that don't dull the sensation. One technique, athe squeeze method,a involves halting sex when the man approaches climax and putting pressure on the frenulum, the connecting skin at the tip and directly beneath the head of the penis. This effectively stoppers the flow of semen and allows you to continue having sex once the desire to ejaculate passes.

Similarly, athe stop methoda involves stopping sex when the man approaches orgasm. But when using this method, no pressure is applied to the penis. The man simply waits until the feeling of impending ejaculation passes, then continues to have sex. aThe stop methoda and athe squeeze methoda can be repeated until you are ready to orgasm.

Another method to stave off orgasm that doesn't necessitate stopping sex is erectile dysfunction exercises. These techniques strengthen the obscure but influential pubococcygeus muscle, which regulates ejaculation and urination. By training and developing this muscle you can learn so suppress ejaculation while continuing to have sex, which will greatly increase both your and your partner's enjoyment.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What are the main causes of premature ejaculation?

    • ANSWER:
      Premature ejaculation is a condition that effects many men at some point in their lives.

      There are a couple of different solutions to the problem, depending on your situation, what you wish to accomplish, and how much work you want to put into it.

      If you are new to sex, there is one easy solution:

      Generally – when a man starts to have sex, his first few experiences will be short lived and not that satisfying. I am convinced that this is because of all of the excitement and pressure surrounding the first few events – to say nothing of the conditions surrounding those first few experiences (Quick before my dad gets home!) The good news is that this almost always goes away on it’s own with a little bit more experience. Don’t worry too much about it – almost no one has a particularly enjoyable first time – it is almost universally uncomfortable for everyone. This can also happen the first few times a man experiences a new sexual activity – such as oral sex. Conversely, sometimes men have the opposite reaction and cannot maintain an erection during their first few experiences. In any case – don’t worry about it – this will go away on it’s own with a little more practice.

      Now, if you are a man who is suffering with premature ejaculation, and you have had plenty of sex, or if this is something new to you – read on:

      There are three short term solutions:

      First wear a condom, which unless you are in a monogamous relationship with someone you know is healthy and want to have children with you should be doing anyway. As most folks know a condom reduces the amount of sensation you will have and as a result you will be stimulated less, you will take longer to reach orgasm, and will last longer. Everyone hates condoms – but they have their place.

      The second thing you can try – if a condom is not for you is to do what Adam Carolla refers to as “taking a bullet out of the chamber.” Masturbate a few hours before you intend to be with your girlfriend, it takes the pressure off, and makes things last longer. Most guys have tried to masturbate and have two or more orgasms in close succession to one another and have found that the second, or third, or fourth (some guys just keep going) takes longer than the one before it. This is the same trick. If you masturbate before you see your girlfriend, then when you are with your girlfriend you will take longer. Alternatively – have your girlfriend go down on you, until you ejaculate in her mouth / boobs / face / wherever turns you two on, and then you go down on her, or finger her or whatever turns her on until you are ready to go again. The second time will of course – take longer.

      Think about baseball. Or of course anything else that is non-sex related. It might be even more effective to think about something you find particularly revolting – like your grandmother – though that might cause bigger problems down the line – try that at your own risk. I of course have no idea how well this solution works – but the guys I have been with all tell me it works a little... but only a little. And it seems to me that this is sort of the opposite of what you want to do – you want to think about the experience and savor it, I imagine (I know I do) so trying to separate yourself from it might be of limited value.

      Then there are 2 long term solutions.

      A lot of guys train themselves to ejaculate quickly when they masturbate – because they want to avoid getting caught by a mom, or a roommate, or a sibling, or a cop... so the idea is to finish up as quickly from start to finish as possible. So what you want to do is un-do that training, or at least use that same sort of training to your advantage. When you masturbate – set aside some time for it, and take your time. When you get cranking, stop periodically. When you get to the point where you feel like you are about to ejaculate – stop, and let the feeling pass – and then start up again. Keep doing that until you can better control the length of time it takes you to reach that initial feeling. Sure it is a bit of work – but it can be fun work to do. You can also do this with a girl, but let her know what you are trying to do before you get started – otherwise she might be very confused.

      The second solution is one I have had very little success with. It is more or less the same as the above solution, where you masturbate, or engage in intercourse with a girl until just before you reach orgasm, and then you stop and pinch (softly) the head of your penis. And this is supposedly supposed to make the feeling of impending orgasm decrease – so that you can go again right away. In my experience – almost every time I have done this, I have ended up with a face full of semen just after pinching the penis. Which is great with me because I love when a man gives me a facial – but it is not the desired result. Other folks say this works well for them. Good for them. It is worth a try.

      In any case – relax – stress about – or focusing on trying not to ejaculate prematurely – or pressure to perform is only going to make your problem worse. The best advice is to simply slow down, and relax. Enjoy the ride.

  5. QUESTION:
    Do women have longer muscle endurance than men?
    This might seem like an odd question coming from a guy, but I stumbled across an article recently which stated that although men are obviously physically stronger than women about ninetysomething percent of the time, women tend to last longer during certain exercises (no, this isn't a dirty question). Of course, it's just a generalisation but I'm just curious as to whether this is true or how true it is?

    • ANSWER:
      This is not true. Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP) is the molecule that resides in skeletal muscle and is the energy source of all cells. A second source of energy is called Glycogen - a stored carbohydrate which is later reduced to Glucose and used as an energy source. Because men tend to have larger muscle mass, they also have an increased level of ATP and Glycogen. This of course assumes that we are comparing both a male and female that have compatiable lifestyles and nutrition.

  6. QUESTION:
    Can the "stop and go" technique, and PC Exercises, really help you last longer?
    I'm looking for ways to physically make me able to last longer in bed. I understand that there are many mental techniques, but for the purpose of this question, I'm looking for physical things. There's two techniques I've heard of that help men last longer.

    The first is utilizing the "stop and go" technique while masturbating, bringing yourself to the edge multiple times and stopping right before. I would have no problem trying this (as I know when you finally do release it feels quite good =P), however I want to know if it really works. The point of sex is to keep going as long as possible, not keep stopping whenever you're getting close. So does this technique really help and how does it help?

    The second one is these PC exercises. They're supposed to make your PC muscle stronger so you have more control. Again, is this possible and does it have noticeable effects?

    So if anyone could provide some clarification on these 2 techniques, as well as provide any other advice on additional things to do, I would appreciate it.

  7. QUESTION:
    Are there exercises that a man can do to last longer in bed?
    For a man that is going to be having sex for the first time are there any exercises so that he will last longer. I know that the more often that a man has sex the longer he will last. For a first timer are there any things that a guy can do?

    • ANSWER:
      Learn to relax and go slower. Concentrate more on her pleasure than what you are getting out of it. Surprisingly, you get more out of it that way, too. Don't be so "performance oriented". It is not a question of technique, but of how much you like/love your partner.

  8. QUESTION:
    what are ways to make men last longer in sex?are there some kinds of exercise or anything?...?

    • ANSWER:
      Have him masturbate and orgasm about four hours beforehand. He won't come quite as quickly the second time. If he does, just go for a third time. Or the fourth. The best way to desensitize your man to sex is, of course, having lots of sex!

  12. QUESTION:
    What exercises should a man do so that he can last longer when making love?

    • ANSWER:
      The exersize is clenching your lower muscles when you pee. practice stopping then going. Kegel exercises serve to tone and strengthen the pubococcygeus or "PC" muscles which form the floor of the pelvis. The health of these muscles plays a vitally important role in sexual arousal and climax, as well as in other aspects of bodily functioning.

      Kegel exercises increase the bloodflow to the genital area, and so support sexual arousal mechanisms.

      Kegel exercises strengthen and tone the muscles that are involved in ejaculation, and so men who Kegel can, if they do some additional work with themselves, gain greater control over the timing of their ejaculations.

      And yes, it works.

  13. QUESTION:
    How long do women want men to last in bed?
    In more detail how long do girls usually want in the actual penetration.

    When i've had sex with my girlfriend I'd last for about 6-10 minutes, and a couple of the times she said she was having feelings that give the impression she was on her way to orgasm.

    So i did 2 and a half weeks of kegel exercises to try to last longer and i last a good bit longer now, however I last for ages then she says it becomes sore for her. And when i pull out the condom is bone dry, despite having used lubrication.

    I'm confused how when i finish she is only "getting there" and when i can last longer it becomes sore for her.

    Also i do thend to do a lot of foreplay, for at least 20-30 mins including performing oral on her.

    Do women actualy want "insertion" for a long time, or are they happy with foreplay and 5-10mins insertion.

    And i know alot of people are goona say just ask her, but i'm wondering about women in general anyways

  14. QUESTION:
    Questions concerning kegels, stop n go method, and lasting longer while continually thrusting?
    I am well aware of my own body, know when I am about to ejaculate, and can have sex for a long time by using stop and go. But my question is how to increase how long I can continually thrust without ejaculating?

    It is my understanding that premature ejaculation is ejaculating before I want to. But that isn't the problem since I can control it using stop and go. My concern is that I cannot last long while continually thrusting. It is a bit severe. While not using a condom, I don't think I can last even a minute without using stop and go.

    Does masturbating using the stop and go method actually increase how long you can last, or does it just increase sex by stopping, resetting your engines, and then going again?

    How do kegels actually help you last longer? I've heard that some men do a kegel during sex and that helps them reset. Is that how it's supposed to help?

    I've also heard that exercise and overall good health can improve your sex life. But does this refer to your sex drive, or how long you can actually last? I am overweight at the moment, but even when I was fit in high school I could not last very long. And there is nothing wrong with my actual sex drive, just how long I can last.

    I'm aware of the extended pleasure condoms. But with my long time partner, it is more of a nuisance to use condoms. She is using birth control and neither of us have STDs.

    I prefer to get responses from those that have actually tried. I have the internet and have read all the same sites you have most likely on these topics. I'm looking for actual answers from someone who knows.
    Also, I've heard Viagra is supposed to help you last longer. I originally thought viagra only helped men get an erection. Does it actually increase how long can you last? Or does it just keep you hard after you ejaculate?
    Also wanted to add that if I masturbate while reading, I basically last forever. Does anyone know if this can help me last longer while not reading?

    • ANSWER:
      I would suggest lubricant that desensitizes your penis, but if you are looking for answers that I use then I would have 2 suggestions. One, masturbate 2 or three times during the day before you are with your woman. My first ejaculation is fast and each one after takes longer. By number 4 I am staining to reach climax. When we were first going out and having lots of sex, I could last for hours because I was always empty. I have also used Fleshlight with the endurance nubs inside. I will post a link. Not only does it feel almost better than real, it does help you last longer. Partially because it creates more sensation than a woman and in part because of what I wrote earlier about staying empty. It is the best you will ever spend.

  16. QUESTION:
    Are Kegel Exercises really helpful?
    I've been reading up on it. I see how it can help men and woman. Women with reaching orgasm, and giving birth. Men with stronger erections and lasting longer in bed, which I truly need right now. So I've been doing these exercises, clenching my pelvic muscles every now and then, mostly when I'm working out. I've also been stopping my urine mid-stream. They say that helps. But does it? It just seems like if I keep doing that, I could get some kind of bladder infection. Urine wasn't supposed to stop and start. Right? Or am I over thinking it? I'm gonna keep up with the exercises, but I just want to hear from you all and see if this actually has worked for any of you. All I want is to be able to last longer in bed and satisfy my fiance'. I don't want to give myself a hernia.

    • ANSWER:
      Quit doing the exercises when you're taking a leak. Tighten those same muscles - hold for 10 seconds then release - do that 10 times throughout the day for a month. Then you'll see how effective they are. When you work out you don't just do one or two then stop - you do sets of them and don't look for improvement right away. Yes, they work.

  17. QUESTION:
    Premature ejaculation help?
    I'm 17 and I cant last. Either I get too nervous and cant get up or I get up and get too excited so it ends quickly. I have been doing kegel exercises, which I think have been helping, but 2 days ago I started taking a workout supplement that has tribulus terrestris in it. I didn't know that tribulus terrestris helped men last longer and enhanced overall performance. So for the past few days ive lasted a lot longer and better when masterbating. But I just masterbated when the supplements effects already wore off and I didn't last as long at all, so Im kind of disappointed that I can't last longer myself without help. If anyone has an alternative solution to getting help from a product then Id like to know, but If anyone knows more about products that could help naturally and safely without having to take for a long period of time then I'd also like to know more about that as well. Any help at all would suffice because ive had this problem for a few years and I want it fixed so i can please my girlfriend.

    • ANSWER:
      The way one holds back his ejaculation using the kegels is to flex and hold them just before ejaculation begins, the more control you have over this muscle, the better you can hold back your ejaculation. (One way to test your effectiveness with this is to start and stop your urine flow when you pee.)
      There is no set limit on how long you should or could do these exercises, but if you stop doing them you will loose some control over time.

When I first started having sex I came pretty quickly, now I can last longer but I always feel like if I don't control it, (with kegels and thought exercises etc...) I would orgasm immediately. I can last pretty long, but I wonder if all guys have this tension during sex?
    I imagine for girls the need to hold back an orgasm is not an issue during sex so they can, "let loose" a little more.

    Are there guys who simply don't feel that tension, for at least most of the time, or is part of sex for a man having that ability to control and hold on even when you really want to come?

    Note: I suppose this is a question directed at men who haven't spent time mastering male multiple orgasms or anything like that, who naturally don't feel the urge to orgasm right away. Though any personal comments about the efficacy of learning MMO techniques is appreciated.
    While the answers below have provided some personal anecdotes, it doesn't really seem to address the main point of my question, which is if guys always end up feeling the tension or not. Obviously some guys can last longer than others, but for those that do, do they at some point constantly have to fight the urge to come?

    • ANSWER:
      I think women try to make a man feel bad if he cums before she wants him too (I'm not saying all women are like that though, just a stereotype). That's where the holding back part comes in...personally I don't try to hold back, if I bust and she's not satisfied then oh well.

  20. QUESTION:
    The secret to expanded life expectancies in men?
    A new research came out last Sunday on some very helpful tips on men living longer. And no, it's not "diet" or "exercise". You'll be surprised!

    First off, studies show that men who take a interest in sports at a early age live an average of 9+ months longer then those who don't.

    Men who get married after age 30 live an average of 10 months to 16 months longer!

    Men who drive an expensive car actually have a shorter life expectancy..that of -3 months.

    Men who stick to a career diligently throughout their lives live a whopping 3 year longer!
    None of ya'll get best answer cause ya'll stupid.

    • ANSWER:
      So what is your question? Are you asking if it is not impotant to maintain a thinner body and do actual physical work? Are you looking for an excuse so you can get fat, not have to work physically, and smoke and drink? A lot of what you found out may have some bearing on logevity, but staying thin and exercising for 3 to 5 hours a week will do you a hell of a lot more good than just having "an interest" in sports, whatever that means.

  24. QUESTION:
    How do use the PC Muscle (kegel) to last longer during sex....?
    I've been doing a kegel workout for about a year, four days a week. I notice that while having sex with my girlfriend I do ejaculate much more cum than before but I don't understand how the exercise is intended to make me "last longer and stay hard longer".

    Am i supposed to flex my PC muscle rite before i ejaculate? do i flex it while i ejaculate? do i try to not flex it at all ever? do i try to keep it flexed the entire time during sex?

    What exactly is the technique to utilizing my now very strong PC muscle? I'm always reading and hearing that a strong PC muscle from kegel excercises can give a guy "greater control" over cumming but.... i just don't understand what I'm meant to do with my PC muscles during sex... and no one every gives proper detail on what to do once the muscles are strengthened. I can flex and hold my PC muscles for a long time, or i can flex and relax it in very very rapid succession I just haven't figuered out how that skill relates to controlling my ejaculation.

    I also heard that a strong PC muscle can allow a man to orgasim without ejaculating, thus allowing for multiple-male-orgasims but i have no idea how the heck that is accomplished.

    This is kinda humiliating to ask but if i could please get a serious answer....

      You can begin experimenting on your own at first (while
      masturbating).
      Make yourself comfortable and then begin masturbating as you
      might normally.
      Stop just before you reach the point of no return (the point where
      you would ejaculate). Contract (squeeze) and hold your PC muscle
      for a count of ten.
      Allow yourself relax and take a few minutes break.
      Begin masturbating again, this time bringing yourself just a bit
      closer to the point of no return, again contracting your PC muscle.
      Continue masturbating while paying very special attention to
      your own state of arousal and emotional feelings. The key here is
      to learn more about your own sexual response so that down the
      road you'll be more in control of it.
      Stopping "right" before ejaculation
      Continue masturbating, except this time, keep going until you
      reach orgasm. Right as you orgasm you should notice several
      contractions that signal the beginning of ejaculation in the base
      of your penis and perhaps even deeper inside your pelvis. As
      these contractions begin or preferably just before (but still during
      the orgasm), stop all stimulation to the penis and squeeze the PC
      muscle tight. You'll probably feel yourself trying to ejaculate, but
      hold it back! Squeezing your PC muscle effectively shuts off your
      ejaculation, if you are successful, and erases the refractory period.
      A small amount semen may seep out, but not with any of the
      force you might normally experience during an unrestrained
      singular orgasm. If you were able to hold off ejaculating after
      your orgasm, start masturbating again now. It should feel as
      though you are still very aroused, not like you just ejaculated.
      You should be able to continue for a short time until you have
      another orgasm.
      If you were unable to keep from ejaculating the first time, either
      your PC muscle isn't strong enough yet or you squeezed it at the
      wrong time. If you begin squeezing too late after the ejaculatory
      contractions have already begun, it is nearly impossible to shut
      stop the process completely. With practice you will learn the
      timing.
      Partnering
      There are many possible techniques you can use to greatly
      increase your success in becoming multi-orgasmic. Perhaps the
      greatest technique you can practice is to share your experiences
      in becoming a multi-orgasmic man with your romantic partner. If
      you are eventually successful, this can be a wonderful opportunity
      for you to significantly increase the pleasure you both receive
      during lovemaking.
      Overcoming problems
      Undoubtedly the biggest obstacle most men will report when
      trying to become multi-orgasmic is failure to squeeze their PC
      muscle sufficiently during orgasm to ward off ejaculation. You
      may feel some contractions, but do not stop squeezing at this
      point because a few ejaculatory contractions are likely even if you
      are successful in eventually stopping them. If you are successful,
      the contractions will stop before you ejaculate and you should be
      able to resume stimulation without a loss of sensitivity, as would
      be present during the refractory period after ejaculation.
      Another common problem many men may report with these
      techniques is failing to determine exactly where the boundaries
      of plateau, orgasm, and ejaculation begin and end. If you cannot
      determine the difference between orgasm and ejaculation, a key
      to becoming multi-orgasmic, you can only succeed by accident
      and not intentionally.
      Some men may try to stimulate themselves very quickly and
      rigorously, and this is not the best way to become aware of your
      personal level of sexual awareness. Taking the stimulation slower
      rather than faster will allow you to discover your personal
      boundaries between arousal, plateau, and orgasm more easily.
      With these discoveries you will have a much greater chance of
      learning when to squeeze your PC muscle, when to stop
      stimulation, and when to relax your PC muscle and resume
      stimulation to experience another orgasm.
      Pelvic pressure after arousal. Pressure in the pelvic area is a
      natural result of increased blood flow into the genital area. If the
      level of this pressure is uncomfortable, it will be helpful to
      breathe deeply, elevate the lower extremities and massage the
      perineum and testicles lightly. This will help the body assimilate
      the energy from the testicles to the rest of the body. It would be
      best also to stay in a reclined position for 5

  25. QUESTION:
    Do girls fantasise about their boyfriend or other men when masterbating?
    My girlfriend is a beautiful woman and I am a reasonably good looking man. We have been living together now for 8 months and get on famously. It's gotten to the point were we are thinking of getting engaged.

    About 4 months ago I badly hurt my back and it took 3 months to heal to a point where I didn't have pain anymore. During that time due to the lack of exercise I put on about 5kg and my self esteem is lower than it was. A possible reason my back took so long to heal is that my girlfriend has a huge sexual appetite and there were very few nights where we didn't have sex even though it was very painful for me. I always told her it wasn't that painful as I try to keep positive about it but she could tell from my hobbling that I was in considerate pain afterwards. When I am healthy our regular sex last 20 mins +, when my back was in pain it might last longer still. Even in my best performing days she never had an orgasm from sex, only when I go down on her or if I play with her clitoris. That has always worried me as past girlfriends had no trouble in that area when having sex but I figured not all women are the same and read somewhere that some girls never orgasm when having sex.

    Two weeks ago I herniated the disk in my lower back again and this time to help the healing process I asked my girlfriend could we abstain from sex for a while to let it heal. Of course she agreed and was very understanding.
    As I find it hard to keep up with her in the best of health I thought I'd be nice and I got her a vibrator so that I could help satisfy her while my back fixed it's self. So far we've used it a few times and both really enjoyed it. She did say that she much preferred sex with me as the vibrator inside her was a little too small and the feeling of closeness excited more than just penetration alone. It's possible that I'm not doing it right as it is both our first time using sex toys.

    Last night I thought it would be fun to watch her use it on herself while I watched and masturbated beside her. After 10 minutes or so I was done, she the put the vibrator away and wanted to use her fingers so she could orgasm. This being a new experience to me I didn't really know what to do so I asked her how can I help, should I talk dirty to her, should I hold her, should I kiss her... but she didn't answer me so I just stayed close to her and told her every so often how sexy she was and how much she turns me on etc. But I noticed she seemed to get more vocal when I was quiet and so I shut up and let her work away. It was then I got the feeling she was thinking about someone else while she pleased herself as her head was turned away from me and her eyes were closed. Within a few minutes she had an orgasm.

    Afterwards the first thing she said was, "I feel different, I feel a little guilty". Not know if it was my business to ask her what she was thinking about I bit my lip but eventually jealousy got the better of me so I asked what was she thinking about. She replied, "I don't think you want to know". Needless to say that didn't make things better. So I asked was she thinking about me or someone else. She said she wasn't thinking about me. This hurt me and intermediately turned away not wanting to look at her. After a few minutes I asked who it was and she just grunted as if she was asleep, I knew she wasn't sleeping so I asked a second time. She said "you don't want to know". At this point she came over and hugged me and told me that it wasn't a big deal and told me how much she loved me saying she didn't want to lie.

    That was the end of the converstation until this morning. When we woke she was being very smiley and was kissing my neck and face saying how much she loved me and she wants to marry me and how i'm the perfect man. Being stubborn I didn't react, I didn't even speak. She eventually asked is there something I needed to know. So I asked her who was she thinking about? She told me that it was some guy she saw in a porno once and she apologized. She then said she was an idiot and could I forgive her. I told her of course I would forgive her but I won't forget it for a while at least.

    This morning I am feeling like I'm not so sexy to her, not so attractive to her and wonder is it that my self esteem is low and an insecurity is surfacing or it it really something to be worried about. She is a little younger than me but I don't look older than her, I am also her first sexual partner. So I can't help but think there might be an issue here.

    I suppose my question is going out to the ladies who are truely in love. Have you ever masturbated while thinking about someone else, a porn star, a movie star or someone you know but know it is only a fantasy and never want to carry it out in real life.

    If so, would you be able to do it while your boyfriend is lying beside you watching you?

    Also, do you think it's healthy to "cheat" in your head instead of doing it for real?

    Can a woman be sure about

    • ANSWER:
      Fantasies keep relationships alive long after the initial sex has become monotonous , eat your favourite food every day and you will soon tire of it . This does not reflect on you at all in fact you should celebrate the fact your girl is so honest with you . We all have fantasies and if we suppress them then we are more likely to act upon them if the opportunity arises , it is better to to put our trust in our partner and share these fantasies because if we don't even the most compatible lovers will eventually grow bored with the sexual routine that develops . Encourage her fantasies and share your own with her that way even years later sex will remain passionate because you will never be quite sure what exactly how your next sexual encounter with your partner will turn out .

      You are suffering from low self esteem because of your health problems but don't let it get you down this girl wants to marry you .

      Oh and some women find clitoris stimulation is more effective at causing orgasm that penetration , ask her to go on top and stroke her during sex and she will react .

  26. QUESTION:
    As a man, how do I deal with what I can only describe as mild hot flashes that last longer (ember flashes)?
    My face and body get warm. Sometimes I start sweating. It lasts for anywhere between 10 minutes to about 45 minutes. It's happened my whole life, I just thought it was normal until I looked into it. What's odd is that what matches the description are called "Ember Flashes" - a type of hot flash and that I'm a 26 year old man. When it happens I'm not moving stuff or exercising. I'm usually just at my computer working or minding my own business when it happens. It's so uncomfortable that I'm constantly fiddling with the air conditioning to counter-act how hot I feel. How (ab)normal is this for a man? Is there anything I can do about it?

  31. QUESTION:
    Death and dying? Whats the answer?
    Today I went to funeral because a middle aged man 55 years old who died of a heart attack on saturday. He was healthy, strong, fit and still quite young. He went out for a walk last weekend when he had a massive heart attack. It killed him instantly. It was shocking to everyone. He was a very prominent and well-respected man person in the community.
    Today at his funeral I was sitting in my car and I saw an elderly man(around 70) who was standing outside the church having a smoke break. He was overweight, old, looked unhealthy---yet he was alive. I guess he has smoked most of his life.
    What I couldnt figure out was how come he had bad habits, in "ok" health, never exercises, and he gets to live? While the younger man exercises, eats right, has good habits, and he dies young? Is it in our genes or DNA at what time we will die?
    Maybe if that younger man was a smoker and didnt take care of his health he would have died a lot of sooner. Maybe 40? Maybe his diet, exercise, and good habits kept him alive until 55? And suppose that old man who was smoking could live to be 100...but now that he has been a life long smoker and takes poor care of his health he may only live to be 80? Still a long life according to the lifespan.

    Do we all have a set-point death date predetermined at birth? Is it in our genes to let us know how long we wil live? DNA? Can we alter our genes through diet and exercise to help us live longer?
    Sometimes I think it is pointless to take care of myself and just live my life and eat the foods I enjoy(even junk). I can die anytime because nobody is immune to death.
    As George Carlin said..."eat right, exercise, die anyway."

    What does everyone think? Are we predetermined to die at a certain date despite how well we take care of ourselves? Or can we alter our death date and live longer through diet and exercise?
    ***NOTE--THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO FREAK ACCIDENTS LIKE CAR CRASHES OR GETTING RUN OVER BY A CAR. This is strictly a biological question.

    • ANSWER:
      Great question. I think death is something we all think about quite a bit.

      Some of us will die young, others middle aged, others in old age. Only God knows for sure.

      As far as predestined, I personally think that we aren't necessarily predestined. For example, I can have great genetics, but smoke life a freight train, shove drugs down my throat, and never exercise. I probably wouldn't live very old.

      On the other hand, if I take care of myself, I have a better chance of living to be at least middleaged or old (assuming my genes don't pull some crazy cancer card on me, or I don't get hit by a bus).

      So I think we can control this, even the bible indicates that by following God's word & living a good life, you can extend your time on earth. It states this several times, especially in the Old Testament when he is giving instructions to the Israelites.

      So we aren't predestined (in my opinion), but at the same time, God does know future/past/present. So He already knows how we will die, and at what age. Kind of like if you created a DVD with actors. You have the script, but the actors don't have a clue. You can fast forward, rewind, etc.

      So again, God knows about it, but we have at least some control over it as well. And yes, we do all have to die someday, but don't fear it. It is like fading away into sleep. And the next thing you know, peace.

      Just like people who have near death experiences. It is often interesting to hear what happens. They all say basically the same thing: they see a light, feel the presence of God (or evil depending on them), and every emotion & sense is greatly intensified.

      One person put it interestingly: they said how when you have a dream, it feels real. But then you wake up and you realize it was fake and didn't seem so real. But their experience with near death was the opposite. They said it seemed so vivid, and so real. When they came back, this world seemed fake!

  32. QUESTION:
    Weak Parasympathetic Sexual Nerve- Kegel- PE?
    This is a little long, but I feel I need to explain everything. I'm a 22 year-old male who has become sexually active recently and has noticed that I seem to suffer from premature ejaculation. I will be making out with my gf and as soon as we start dry humping I will end up going in my pants. I been trying everything to stop this since it's really embarrassing... I came across Kegel exercises, and it seem's since I've been doing these, I've developed a new problem... Semen Leakage. Whenever I have an erection or semi erection, I end up with pre-cum. Everyone says it's normal, but it didn't happen before... and So now whenever I get a 'hard-on' i tend to get a little wet down below, and it's really inconvenient when I'm at work or anywhere else... I did some more research and it says if you do the Kegel exercises wrong, or if you masturbate too much(which i use to a year or so ago)... you could end up weakening your parasympathetic sexual nerve which controls your ejaculation valve to keep shut and maintain a strong erection.(i've also noticed that my erections are not as strong as they used to be). "Semen leakage is a sign of the weakening of the parasympathetic sexual " I been reading about how if you have these problems you need to "charge/strengthen your parasympathetic nervous system. I came across "Last Longer III" which was recommended on herballove.com for younger men.

    I don't want to do anything else to screw up again... I was wondering if anybody else is gone through this, semen leakage/premature ejaculation or anything else. and what to do. and what to take to help your body. is there certain foods, exercises? are kegels really the reason? I would love anything that might help. Please, I have no idea where else to turn. I don't want to go to a doctor yet, cause I'm shy.. I might just have to... If anyone has any advice or information I'd be glad to hear it. Thanks in advance!

  34. QUESTION:
    Why do I feel so short compared to men older than me?
    I just turned 19 and to make a long story short, I feel very short to men close to my age. To provide some background information I'm around 5'9'' and I'm around 150 lbs. Average as most would consider. For about a month now, I've been extremely height conscious. Comparing my height to any and everyone I come into contact with. Height was never a main concern of mine when I was younger, despite the fact that my little brother was taller than me, I just shrugged it off convincing myself that he was above average. I also, for some reason, always thought that I would have plenty of time to grow in size. Meaning, I figured I'd have up until about age 30 to grow to upward to my fullest potential. After research, I've discovered that most men on average stop at about 21 years of age, some as late as 25.

    But why is it that when I'm in public, I feel significantly shorter to other men? Once again, I'm 5'9'' and it seems that an average majority of the guys are at least 2 inches taller than me, destroying any self esteem I have. Men in their 30's or older almost ALWAYS are taller than me.

    What can I do in order to stimulate height gain? I refuse to believe it's genetics due to the fact that, although I'm taller than my mother and father, both of my younger brothers exceed me by at least 2 inches..

    Anything you can recommened? Hypnotherapy, exercises, stretches, diet, basketball, swimming, anything? I haven't yet given up hope, I know I have more time to grow as I've gained an inch since last year.

    I won't consider surgery of any kind for more than obvious reasons. Thanks in advanced.

    She lost her virginity to me; however she was not my first, she is my 4th.

    Anyways, like when we first did it, it had been a while for me, it had been like almost a year or so... i was expecting, o man, this is going to be like 30 seconds, well, it was almost 2 hours.

    And yes, condom was used. Just regular good-ol rubber.

    Then we started doing it more, like every weekend or so, and i usually lasted 1 - 2 hours, that was it.

    Then we started using the thinner condoms and it stayed around 45 minutes to 2 hours, so no much change.

    Then we used the Trojan Eccstasy or something like that, and it was about 30 minutes to 1 hour and a half.

    Then we started using no condom (yes she is on the pill and i pull out, i know its risky... what ever) and stayed just the same 30 minutes, and a few times close to 1:45.

    Then idk what happened but there was this one time i put it in and literally 10 seconds... then i put a condom on (residue still inside, we are not that dumb, lol) and agian, 10 seconds....

    That went away and i only lasted about 5 - 15 minutes... she tells me she doesnt mind at all, cuz longer makes her get sore, she does have an allergy to lube (even the sensitive kind) and to latex so yeah. We have even tried it with regular condoms, like the ones we first used and i could not last longer than 5 to 10 minutes!!!! :(

    Now, she kinda took a vow of celibacy, not like a NEVER SEX, but like she doesnt want to have sex for a while, well, we still do a lil, so its not like a legit vow of celibacy, but when we did, these past times i lasted under a minute. And she just told me its going to be a while before we do it again. And i am just like OMG THIS SUCKS because she wouldnt go for a "second round" when we did it.

    So how can i last long AGAIN....cuz i hate these 10 second quickies...she says she doesnt mind them, like she told me the nice and slow love making went flying out of the window, she likes it rough now, idk why... but i tell her that if she liked the 10 seconds she says yeah, not to worry about it, its been a while since we've done it, etc...

    P.S. She think that having sex twice a month makes our relationship just about sex, how can i prove her wrong? I mean, like doest the average couple do it like 4 times a week? lol I mean, its not like we have sex every time we see each other, she says: "im just not a horny virgin anymore" so idk how to take that...

    But that is not the point, i just want to know, how can i last long again so i can really enjoy it. I've tried tricking my body by masturbating like RIGHT before having sex, but she just feels so darn good i couldnt last longer than 20 seconds the last 3 times we've done it.
    DONT BE LAZY, I just timed myself reading it and it took me 1 minute and 33 seconds!

    Okay, basics, used to last 2 hours, not only SECONDS.

    Should i go to a doctor?

    What kind?

    K thx.

    • ANSWER:
      DUDE! I feel fo you man. Really I do. I'm in a similar situation. And your questions though kinda out of control are alot, but here's my attempt:

      Since the original condoms you lasted longer maybe there a connection there. I would first say that you should go back to that style and brand. Also when you do the kegels its not so much of a butt muscle as it is your pi$$ stopper muscle. So start practicing that alot. Later on after you've mastered that muscles distinction you should try jacking and stopping method by your self. This could build up your tolerance. And if you have sex again possibly make you last longer. Its worked for me in the past with other girls.

      Talk to your girlfriend and see why now all the with holding and remind her that you don't see it the same way.

  41. QUESTION:
    Why do blacks embrace the Democratic Party ?
    In reading The Rise and Fall of Jim Crow. I find this passage most interesting. Most whites rallied around the Democratic Party as the party of white supremacy. Between 1868 and 1871, terrorist organizations, especially the Ku Klux Klan, murdered blacks and whites who tried to exercise their right to vote or receive an education. The Klan, working with Democrats in several states, used fraud and violence to help whites regain control of their state governments. By the early 1870s, most Southern states had been "redeemed" -- as many white Southerners called it -- from Republican rule. By the time the last federal troops had been withdrawn in 1877, Reconstruction was all but over and the Democratic Party controlled the destiny of the South.

    -- Richard Wormser

    It would explain why the Honorable Senator Robert Byrd lasted so long in the Democratic Party. As I read further in this interesting site. I find it curious in wondering just how many blacks have read it or even bothered to read more about Jim Crow.

    Whom was Jim Crow These words are from the song, "Jim Crow," as it appeared in sheet music written by Thomas Dartmouth "Daddy" Rice. Rice, a struggling "actor" (he did short solo skits between play scenes) at the Park Theater in New York, happened upon a Black person singing the above song -- some accounts say it was an old Black slave who walked with difficulty, others say it was a ragged Black stable boy. Whether modeled on an old man or a young boy we will never know, however, it is clear that in 1828 Rice appeared on stage as "Jim Crow" -- an exaggerated, highly stereotypical Black character.

    But Jim Crow came to be, more often used to describe the segregation laws, rules, and customs which arose after Reconstruction ended in 1877 and continued until the mid-1960s. How did the name become associated with these "Black Codes" which took away many of the rights which had been granted to Blacks through the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments?

    I am not saying that the Jim Crow era was in any way fair or good for American People, and it was by no means fair to the Blacks. It was an abomination, that has ripped this country down the middle every sense the eighteen hundreds. I also find it curious that it was actually the Then called Radical Republican wing of the Republican Party that wanted emancipation, and supported abolition.

    Anyway, I will continue to read these stories. As it find them interesting. I am sorry to say, as a White man, that I never really found much reason to look into Jim Crow. But now that I have I can understand better how Blacks felt, but I don't understand their embracing the Democratic Dogma, with such fervor. I still say that its really the Democratic Party that keeps their foot on the neck of our Black black Citizens. You might notice that I use the word Black. that is because I don't think it makes any sense to have to call them African-Americans. We are either all Americans, or we are not. I don't think that any of the current generations of Blacks, have been forcibly brought to this country, as slaves or anything else. To me anybody that is a citizen, by birth or nationalization are just Americans, and always will be. Having your ancestral country, your religion, or any other identity makes no sense to me.

    http://www.ferris.edu/jimcrow/what.htm

    http://www.ferris.edu/jimcrow/who.htm
    Well, I think that you had better read and research further.
    I care because you are just as much an American than I am, unless of course you think I owe you something more than that. And because your a human being. Is there anything more important than that. If you were a sponge, i might have my doubts.
    i would further say, that I care, about the history of these United States, and its Citizens, regardless of what ethnic background they have. I also feel as strongly about how this country treated and still treats the Native Americans, And you might notice I did not use a hyphen. That is because they are the true Americans. Buy fact that we were the usurper's. And we started mistreating them before we started mistreating the Blacks. and then the Chinese, And the Hispanics. Unless we come together as just Americans, we are destined to repeat history. And that would be tragic.
    Martin Luther King, once had a dream, of unity and freedom for all Americans. I to have a dream. That it comes true, and that this melting pot of peoples, unites, and moves forward as a free and understanding people. Yes it will be hard, but it takes us all to work it out. The sad thing is neither political party is going to do that. It takes the people, to be honest and open with themselves and their fellow citizens. You can throw the hateful wards back and forth until time in memorial, and it won't change a thing, now will it. I say treat each other as a individual, and private person. Then come together for the collective good.
    well Loveylada, I have not seen the job market grow yet, I have not seen education improve, and I have seen on that is the Union grow. I have not seen the health care improve, in fact I see it getting worse, and sooner than later.In fact I have seen nothing get better with more tax and spend policies, and more entitlement polices. As for taxes until you have a system in which everybody pays a fair share of tax on the money they make, nobody will benefit.
    Well its about time that all the voters stop drinking the cool-aid. and learn for themselves what the issues are, from both sides. And make informed decisions when voting. And not just following all the lemmings, with that warm tingly felling up their legs. You don't vote somebody in office based on their Race, Ethnic, Creed, Gender, Color, or Religion. You vote them into office on your informed views on the issues. And how that person can help the citizens, withing the guidelines of the Constitution. Not based on ideology, progressive, socialist or religious beliefs. I find it so sad that so many just vote because they can, or because they buy what somebody else is feeding them, with is often times bigoted, or biased beyond belief. I also find it sad that a good many questioned as to why they voted, or asked about an issue, they have no logical answer......

  43. QUESTION:
    Men with toned bodies, how can I get into shape?
    I am 5ft10" and weigh 83kg and this is more than what I should be. My BMI suggests that I should weigh around 70-75kg, so I obviously need to lose about 10kg before I think about doing any weights to tone my body.

    About 4 years ago I was put on tablets due to depression and as a side affect I gained a lot of weight, within the last 1.5 years, I went off those tablets due to this side affect because I was up around 92kg and after I went off of them, the weight that I had gained gradually come off without me exercising and I plateaued at around 80kg.

    I have now started to gain weight again, due to bad eating habits (my mother has cancer so I get my own dinner to save her stress so I usually go for the bad stuff like McDonalds) and I have now decided that this is not good!

    I have booked myself into see a dietician, I want to go on a diet that is planned out for me, not one of those ones that you see in the chemists that is designed to fail, and even though I am going to have the food side of things organised, I have no idea on what types of exercises to do to lose this excess weight and how long it is going to take.

    What kinds of exercises can I do to lose the weight (treadmill?) and what kind of equipment (all in one gym machine?) do I need to build up my six pack, pecs, arm and leg muscles????

    I want to have a body that women can't resist, so all answers would be greatly appreciated=)

    • ANSWER:
      Eleven SUPERFOODS
      Almonds and nuts
      Beans
      Spinich and dark greens
      Dairy Products
      Oatmeal
      Eggs
      Lean Meat
      Peanut Butter
      Olive Oil
      Whole Wheat
      Berries

      These foods really help burn fat. Also keep up some cardio to burn more. Interval training is best, but also the hardest. But always do strength too. You can rotate days of strength training and cardio. As for my routine. I run every day, rotating days of intervals and days of long runs. As for strength, i do crunches and pushups and I'm pretty content with my body. But remember, a whole lot of your body fat loss depends on your diet. Hope this helps!

  44. QUESTION:
    Men, do people talk to you at urinals?
    1.) Two men were standing at adjacent urinals when one said to
    the other, "I'll bet you were born in Newark, Ohio."

    "Why, that's right!" said the second man in surprise.

    "And I'll bet you were circumcised when you were three days
    old."

    "Right again. But how'd you --"

    "And I'll bet it was done by old Doc Steadman."

    "Well, yes, but how did you know!?" asked the second man in
    amazement.

    "Well, old Doc always cut them at a 60-degree angle,"
    explained the first guy, "and you're pissing on my shoe."

    2.Father O'Grady was saying his goodbye's to the parishioners
    after his
    Sunday morning service as he always does when Mary Clancey came
    up
    to him in tears.

    "What's bothering you so, dear?" inquired Farther O'Grady.

    "Oh, father, I've got terrible news." Replied Mary.

    "Well what is it, Mary?"

    "Well, my husband, passed away last night, Father."

    "Oh, Mary" said the father, "that's terrible. Tell me Mary,
    did he have
    any
    last requests?"

    "Well, yes he did father," replied Mary.

    "What did he ask, Mary?"

    Mary replied, "He said, 'Please, Mary, put down the gun...'"

    3.)Exercise is good for you...

    1) My grandmother started walking five miles a day when she was 60.
    She's 97 now and we don't know where the heck she is.

    2) I joined a health club last year, spent about 400 bucks. Haven't
    lost a pound. Apparently you have to show up.

    3) The only reason I would take up jogging is so that I could
    hear heavy breathing again.

    4) I have to exercise in the morning before my brain figures what I'm
    doing.

    5) I don't exercise at all. If God meant for us to touch our toes, He
    would have put them further up our body.

    6) I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people
    who annoy me.

    7) I have flabby thighs, but fortunately my stomach covers them.

    8) The advantage of exercising every day is that you die healthier.

    9) If you are going to try cross-country skiing, start with a small
    country.

    10) I don't jog. It makes the ice jump right out of my glass.

    11)I do actually jog, from the barstool to the men’s room

  45. QUESTION:
    Men -Please help me!!?
    When me and my wife have intercourse i usually last for 2-3min
    and she doesnt get satisfied so i do forplay and stuff,But i wanted to know if there is a way to have a longer ejaculation, a stronger penis,so i searched on the net and found about the Kegels exercise.
    My question is:
    Does this exercise really longers the time of ejaculation?
    Did any of u try it?

    Thank u very much really appreciate it....

    • ANSWER:
      It shouldn't necessarily make it take longer to ejaculate, but it allows you to resist when you get close by tightening the muscle.

      You're describing what sounds like premature ejaculation, and there are other excercises that could help you out with that too. Here's a page:

  46. QUESTION:
    Memory exercises????
    Two elderly couples were enjoying friendly conversation when one of the men asked the other....

    "Fred, how was the memory clinic you went to last month?"

    "Outstanding," Fred replied. "They taught us all the latest psychological techiniques - visualization, association, repetition - it made a huge difference for me."

    "That's great! What was the name of the clinic?"

    Fred drew a blank. He thought and thought, but couldn't remember.

    Suddenly he asked, "What do you call that red flower with the long stem and thorns?"

    "You mean a rose?"

    "Yes, that's it!" He turned to his wife. . ."Rose, what was the name of that clinic?"

  47. QUESTION:
    Is it bad if my 29-inch waistline expanded to 34 inches in the last 15 months?
    ALL my pants now don't fit and I am forced to buy a whole new wardrobe of pants and jeans because of my continually expanding waistline. 15 months ago, I could've worn ANY pants I had owned.

    I bought a new pair of pants last September (32-inch waist since at the time that was my waist measurement), but eight months later, they no longer fit! I cannot button up above the fly zipper (it was basically an inch out of reach) even if I tried to suck in my stomach.

    Up until this happened, since I was 18, I was ALWAYS a size 29-inch waist and a thin build weighing about 120-125 lbs. I am now 35 going on 36 weighing about 145 lbs. and the last 15 months really concerned me. My eating and exercise habits have not changed, so there shouldn't be any reasons for me to rapidly "balloon" like this unless its either in the family genes (my father has a hefty beerbelly) or age is catching up with me or both?

    Am I gaining weight and expanding my waistline faster than a normal man should?

    • ANSWER:
      You have always been very slim and you now have a mans figure rather than a boys. However you dont want to go on expanding at this rate otherwise you will end up obese.
      AS we get older our metabolism slows and we do not need so much fuel. Try to cut down on your calorie intake a little and see if you can stabilise your weight.
      Cut down on beer, sugar and fat. if your diet doesn't include these things you will need to cut your portion size at meals.

  50. QUESTION:
    when do men stop growing???and how much do u grow every year on average?
    im in 7th grade.last year in the begginning of 6th grade i stood around 5'1-5'2 i had a girly voice,no armpit hair,and etc.during the middle of 6th grade i went through puberty.i am now 5'4and 1/2.i want to know ABOUT how much i would grow.the strange thing about this is that my mom is 5'4 and my dad is 5'2.for some reason my brother and i are taller then them.(my brother is 5'7).i want to know if im still going to grow. i think im going through my growth spert casue it was only 6 months ago or more.how long does yur growth spert last and how much will i grow.ivee been getting enough sleep,i exercise,and i eat a lot of protein.my goal in life is to reach 6ft.just please answer and help me becasue im freaking out...

    • ANSWER:
      You have really little parents. Probably you're almost done growing if not already done, though there's a chance you could get up to maybe 5'6 or 5'7 because your mother is taller than your dad. Honestly don't even count on growing 6 ft. You almost always need to have at least one parent be 6 ft. tall in order to reach that height.

      For example my mom is 6 ft tall. So am I. And so are both my brothers. We're all the exact same height and our dad is the shortest one.

      You probably won't even be close to as tall as we are with shrimpy parents like that, sorry.

If nitric oxide levels are low, no erection can occur and Cnidium tops levels up just like man made drugs but with no potential dangerous side effects.
Horny Goat Weed

This herb lives up to it's name and just like Cnidium is a great nitric oxide booster in addition, the herb increases levels of testosterone, the key male sex hormone and finally, fights stress and anxiety which helps to increase energy levels in the body which manifests itself in a stronger sex drive.

Ginseng

  3. QUESTION:
    Question for men only: Any tips on lasting longer while having sex?
    Alright lads, I wonder if you could help me on this one. From all my past experiences having sex, I have gotten over excited and finished quite quickly, do you guys have any tips on lasting longer?

    • ANSWER:
      Sorry I'm a female, but no one gave you this info:

      In general, practice and relaxation will help you deal with the problem. Some men try to distract themselves by thinking non-sexual thoughts (such as naming baseball players and records) to avoid becoming excited too fast.

      Some helpful techniques include the following:

      Masturbate an hour or so before having sex.

      The "stop and start" method:

      This technique involves sexual stimulation until the man recognizes that he is about to ejaculate. The stimulation is then removed for about thirty seconds and then may be resumed. The sequence is repeated until ejaculation is desired, the final time allowing the stimulation to continue until ejaculation occurs.

      The "squeeze" method:

      This technique involves sexual stimulation until the man recognizes that he is about to ejaculate. At that point, the man or his partner gently squeezes the end of the penis (where the glans meets the shaft) for several seconds, withholding further sexual stimulation for about 30 seconds, and then resuming stimulation. The sequence may be repeated by the person or couple until ejaculation is desired, the final time allowing the stimulation to continue until ejaculation occurs.

  4. QUESTION:
    how do some men last longer than others?
    after watching many pornographic videos, i see some men doing some of the sexiest girls i have ever seen, and being able to have sex with them for over 30 minutes. when i masturbate without stopping it takes me less than 7 minutes. how are some men able to last as long as they do in certain porn videos? can the avg man last that long?

    • ANSWER:
      No. Average is seriously just a few minutes. And most girls really don't want it to be lasting 30 minutes anyway. People in pornos are not normal, don't ever think that what happens in porn is real.

  5. QUESTION:
    What is a strong, long lasting, men's belt?
    For some reason belts just don't last on me. The longest time I have owned a single belt is right now but it is going to break any day and it doesn't have a tag so I don't know what brand it is.

    So finally to to question:
    Does anybody know of a very strong, long lasting, casual men's belt brand?

    • ANSWER:
      Get one from the store Buckle. They're sort of expensive, but they're nice!

    • ANSWER:

  7. QUESTION:
    why do u think white men last longer than white women in marriages?

    white men with non white women have the longest lasting marriages (and their kids also do better in school, have high rate of college graduates)

    while white women with non white men have the shortest marriages ( and their kids do worse in school and a pretty low rate of college graduates)

    • ANSWER:
      I'm guessing you're going to get deleted. Thanks for the 2 points.

  8. QUESTION:
    Lasting longer for men?
    I've never had sex and am going to really soon and I think I could last a pretty good amount of time, but if you have any techniques on lasting longer that would be nice. Thanks :)

    what makes some guys be able to go all dai and some guys minute men ? and what are some ideas or tips on inproving your sex time and why they ur tyme myte be low anyway?

    • ANSWER:
      some guys just dont have control when it comes to orgasms. they just cant hold it in. and maybe also desire to have the climax feeling quickly has something to do with it. i guess just tell the guy to slow down, since going faster apparently makes them climax faster, haha.

  11. QUESTION:
    What LONG LASTING men cologne would you recommend?
    I would like to wear a cologne that will last about 12 hours or more.

    • ANSWER:
      bvulgari- aqva

      smellls oh so goood. i was still able to smell it on my shirt after it rubbed off from my bf 2 days after while doing laundry

  12. QUESTION:
    Is it true that circumcised men last longer in sex?
    I heard that men who are circumcised take more time to ejaculate than non circumcised men.Is it true?I guess they feel less than usual.I have a friend who is circumcised and he has a hard time ejaculating.

    • ANSWER:
      Circumcised males have higher sexual dysfunction than intact men.

      The foreskin contains many nerves.

      Circumcision de-sensitizes the penis. Because the foreskin no longer protects the glans (head of the penis), it dries out. The skin also hardens because it is constantly rubbing on your undergarments.

      One theory is that there is no sensory feedback. So, circumcised men are more likely to suffer from premature ejaculation AND delayed ejaculation.

  13. QUESTION:
    Do men last longer during sex as they get more experienced?
    I've had people tell me both yes and no, so i though i would pose the question to everyone.

    • ANSWER:
      I think both age and experience help. But also in the mix is the desire to please. Taking the focus off your own pleasure takes both maturity, and also helps when its not you first second, or hundreth time in the love tunnel.

  14. QUESTION:
    lasting longer?
    how can i get my man to last longer in the bedroom department it just seems pointless takin any clothes off lol

    • ANSWER:
      The best way to have sex is play with eachother first... he can masturbate while stimulating your clitoris with his mouth. You will get turned on... and tell him to keep going untill he gets an erection again... and then for another tip... Have him push off against a wall with his feet... He will stimulate your G-spot by pushing further in... Tell him to rub you up and down while he is down there... Also make sure he gets something out of it as well.... If he orgasms first then sex can last to 3 hours....

  15. QUESTION:
    What are some long lasting men's fragrance?
    I'm looking for a cologne that will hold the entire day dont matter if its overpowering. I heard Pleasures by estee lauder was a good one. Please recommend some very good long lasting colognes.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi:
      Kouros by Yves Saint Laurent is about the longest lasting I know, but it is not for everyone (it is really powerful). I had a shirt go through the wash and the clothes drier and still smell of it.

      Quorum by Antonio Puig is another long lasting one. It is very "sharp" and is a pine/woody/soapy fragrance. It can be ought really cheaply ( for 3.4oz).

      Yatagan by Caron is similar to Quorum, but richer. It is very woody, but more expensive than Quorum.

      B*Men by Thierry Mugler lasts a long time too. It is a sweeter fragrance that has a caramelly/licorice/fruit scent to it.

      Gentleman by Givenchy is a super-strong woody fragrance. It has patchouli as well.

      Grey Flannel by Geoffrey Beene is a nice strong woody/floral for men. lasts a long time and smells of violets. It can be bought fairly cheaply and comes in a 4 0z bottle.

      On the other hand I am yet to find a Calvin Klein cologne that lasts a reasonable amount of time: the longest lasting fragrances tend to be the ones which came out first in the 1970's and 1980's. Many of the modern fragrances are 'top note" heavy - which means they have a lot of very strong/short-lived elements which smell amazing at first but which fade very rapidly.

    • ANSWER:
      When I was young I was the same way. Honestly it is the best feeling in the world. However, a trick was past on to me. Just after penetration he's got to divert his mind. I used to think about baseball. I'd play the game in my mind and just keep stroking. I lasted a lot longer. He's got to do this every time for a few weeks. After a time he'll be able to hold it for quite some time. I could easily go an hour. It's work but it's well worth the work. Good luck and enjoy.

      Do you love how people stereotype one another in America?

  28. QUESTION:
    Why would Conservative Christians advocate circumcision as a method to make their men last longer in bed?

    • ANSWER:
      I know a lot of Americans are weird, and apparently biblically inept, but if you are a Christian; circumcision is a sin.

      Colossians is the proof-text for the doctrine of Christ's circumcision being a part of his substitutionary sacrifice. Jesus was mutilated in order to identify with those who suffered under the Old Covenant, as well as to shed His innocent blood once and for all, so no baby would ever have to be subjected to circumcision again.

      ~Col. 2:8-14 "See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men...rather than according to Christ. For in Him all the fulness of Deity dwells in bodily form and in Him you have been made whole.. and in Him you were also circumcised, with a circumcision made without hands, in the removal of the body of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ, having been buried with Him in baptism, and raised up with Him through faith. And...in the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive together with Him. . . having cancelled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against us which were hostile to us. And He has taken them out of the way, having nailed them to the cross."

      Paul teaches here that circumcision was meant to be a curse (no one is supposed to want to do this to their babies!), but that Christ has been the substitution for our children, that our sons should never have to shed their blood again.

      ~Gal. 5:2 "Behold, I Paul, say to you that if you become circumcised, Christ will profit you nothing!"

  31. QUESTION:
    Can men last longer than women in bed?
    Does age make a difference?

    • ANSWER:
      It varies. With plenty of lube a woman can often go indefinitely (even if she's lost interest). A guy can only go as long as his erection holds out.

      Age can effect natural lubrication in women, and endurance in men...however some middle aged folks can go longer than some younger folks so it's not a definite way to determine how long one might last.

      The key is to have fun doing it...not to try to send smoke signals from her vagina.

  33. QUESTION:
    Whose friendship last longer: Men or Women?
    Whose friendships tend to last longer? Friendships between men or friendships between women?

    • ANSWER:
      Who's more "sociable," men or women? Common sense says it's women, right? And many research studies back this impression up: Women are more interpersonal, more connected, more interdependent than men. Women are more likely to share intimate information with each other than men. But is that really the whole story?

      There is also research suggesting that men have larger social networks than women do, and that male-male friendships last longer than female-female ones.

      A team led by Joyce Benenson conducted a set of three studies that may shed some light on the question. In their first study, they identified 30 male and 30 female undergraduates at a small, Northeastern U.S. college. Half of each group was specifically recruited because they said they had some kind of conflict with their roommate. The other half said they were planning on living with their roommate for the rest of the school year. Each student was asked to rate their satisfaction with their roommate on a scale of 1 to 5. A score of 4 or 5 was defined by the researchers as "satisfied." So were there gender differences? Here are the results:

      The male students were significantly more likely to be satisfied with their roommates than female students, whether or not they had a conflict with their roommate. The students also rated their roommates on social interaction, interests, values, and hygiene, and male students gave significantly higher ratings for their roommates than females for every category except hygiene

  34. QUESTION:
    How can we men last longer to ejaculate?
    I have a big problem and it is that I ejaculate too fast, at least my girl feels good because I ejaculate 4 or 5 times in about a 4 hours period, but I don't feel good because when she is feeling better "BOOM" I ejaculate.

    • ANSWER:
      Try this.

      Controlling ejaculation is a huge issue for many men, one that they are often too embarrassed to bring up. How do I control myself? How can I last longer, be firmer and do better? The answer is working out your pubococcygeus muscles (PC) muscles, by doing Kegel exercises for men.

      PC muscles control the flow of semen and urine, the firmness of your penis during erection and the shooting power of your ejaculation. They are important, and if kept very strong, will see you into your golden years with a fantastical hard on. The great thing about Kegel exercises for men is that you can do them anywhere, anytime -- and nobody will know the difference.

      You will be able to better control your orgasms and ejaculations, and last for longer, plus you may get the added kudos of being able to hold up a wet towel with your erection if you practice these Kegel exercises for men.

      How do I know where my PC muscles are?
      The easiest way to find them is to stop your flow of urine next time you go to the bathroom. Another way to isolate them is to put your finger inside your anus; when you contract the right muscles, your anus will tighten. However you decide to find them, once they are found you need to practice feeling exactly where they are located -- it is easy to overcompensate for weak muscles by using the abdominals, buttocks or thighs. These must all stay relaxed when doing Kegel exercises for men.

      Now, on to the daily Kegel exercises for men.

      Note: These exercises are done hands-free. You do not “squeeze” anything with your hands as they are all done with your PC muscles.
      kegel session 1Exercise A
      Sets: 3
      Quickly clench and release repeatedly for 10 seconds.

      Take a 10-second break between sets.

      Exercise B
      Sets: 10
      Clench and release repeatedly for 5 seconds.

      Take a 5-second break between sets.

      Exercise C
      Sets: 3
      Tighten and hold your PC muscle for 30 seconds.

      Take a 30 second break between sets.

      That’s it for today, but repeat these Kegel exercises for men daily for one week.
      kegel session 2Exercise A
      Sets: 10
      Clench and hold your PC muscle for 5 seconds.

      Release and repeat.

      Exercise B
      Sets: 3
      Quickly clench and release your PC muscle 10 times.

      Exercise C
      Sets: 3
      Clench and release your PC muscle alternatively in long and short bursts for counts of 10.

      Exercise D
      Sets: 1
      Tighten your PC muscle and hold for as long as you can. Aim for 2 minutes.

      You can do the session 2 Kegel exercises for men for a week; however, feel free to progress if you feel you are strong enough. Remember that these are strengthening exercises, so start off slowly and build up, just like you would with any other muscle.

  36. QUESTION:
    Do circumcised men last longer ?
    I read that the foreskin of the penis produces a good feeling when rubbed or stimulated. Does this mean that circumcised men last longer during lovemaking owing to a lack of intense sensation ?

    Experienced people please respond.

    Appreciate it.

    • ANSWER:
      They do lose sensation but from everything I've read they tend to thrust differently (ie harder) to get off so they come in about the same time anyway. Although I think there are more factors involved like psychological factors etc.

      There was a study that showed a tiny difference like a few seconds.

    How To Last Longer .. Men?
    My boyfriend is always frustrated because he doesn't last a long time when we have sex. What do you suggest??
    We have tried having him cum before, but then it doesn't get fully erect for a while after that.

    • ANSWER:
      the theory is that men cause this by being ashamed of and rushing masturbation. they more or less train themselves to climax quickly to get it over with and reduce the risk of getting caught. there are two methods he can use to retrain his body. first is called the start and stop method. in it, during intercourse, he stops before he reaches the point of no return, waits for it to pass and keeps doing this. the second as just before he climaxes he pulls out and pinches the tip, painfully so.

      to me, find another way. both of those really make sex frustrating. the antidepressants and numbing gels work, but you can enjoy sex because you can't feel your climax. i think you are best to do oral to satisfy you, enjoy what intercourse you have, and if you want more, get a toy he can use on you for hours if that's what you want.

  50. QUESTION:
    Is There a Pill to Help Men Last Longer in Bed?
    Is there a SAFE pill to desensitize men and help them last longer during intercorse? Are there mental methods that he can use to control the time of ejaculation? Does age play a factor? Does his physique make any difference? Should a man in his 20's have no control?
    OK, Viagra is for men who cant keep it up right??? This is not the problem...the issue is PROLONGING intercorse.

    • ANSWER:
      There are a lot of pills that claim to make a man better. ED pills help somewhat, but they basically only ensure sex happens, not how long it will last. Condoms are very good at desensitizing.

      There are mental techniques a man can use PRIOR to ejaculation to last longer. But once the barn doors have opened, the animals are coming out.

      Physical shape has a lot to do with it. A man in better shape will have more stamina and typically more control. Therefor age can play into it. an older man in poor health won't be as good as when he was younger. But a 40 year old in great shape will out do a 20 year old in poor shape.

      And it is possible for a man in his 20s to have no control. Just like it's possible for a man in his teens, 30's, 50s, 70s etc. to have no control. It could be a medical problem if by "no control' you mean he doesn't even get up to bat. If you mean he only lasts a few seconds, he'll probably be like that his entire life without some intervention (like a condom).


Lasting Longer Bed Vitamins

Nature has made men and women differently; men tend to reach orgasm quickly than women which does not allow sex last longer to give satisfaction to both the partners. It is important for men to know how to prolong their lovemaking act to make it more pleasurable and give their female partner complete satisfaction that she deserves.

There are many methods or ways by which men can prolong their lovemaking and enjoy their intimate moments for longer time. Learning and developing control over your PC muscle is one of them, PC muscles are those muscles which control the flow of urine and semen, these muscles can be felt when you stop the flow of urine in between. These muscles can be trained to stop the flow of semen too, on your command, to prolong love making when you feel like ejaculating. Practice by clenching these muscles and hold for few seconds and release, repeat this several times in a day, this will develop the response of these muscles and you will be able to control your orgasm and enjoy your intimate moments for longer duration.

This method will work only for those who cannot control their orgasm because of over excitement.

Good foreplay techniques and knowledge of pleasure points of your partner's body and exploring them in the way she loves will also help you in prolonging lovemaking and enjoying your intimate moments longer.

    What kind of pills or supplements I can use to have a harder erection and last longer in bed?
    I already been told that viagra isn't healthy for me at my age (22) and I really want something to keep me going and not c u m so soon. I can get a hard on easily, but its so difficult for me to keep it hard for at least an hour. I want to be able to blast sperm like a pornstar.

    Is there any type of vitamin, pill or supplement to help me perform better? I want to be a sex machine and cover my lovers in a bucket load of sperm and have a long lasting, hard penis. Like Peter North, Rocco Sifredi, etc.

    Anyone can give me any websites, information, ANYTHING to help me find out what is good for me to take for my age.

    Thank you a ton.

    • ANSWER:
      a lot matters on your partner, your own mental state at that time. There are times when even two and three times a night is not enough to satisfy me, and I am 47. At other times, if my or my partners mood is just not there, then keeping erect even for a few minutes is a big thing. It's all in the mind. Don't think about wanting to keep erect for a n hour when you are doing it, just consider the task at hand-pleasuring your partner and getting pleasure from your partner. You are young and over a period of time will definitely develop the art of keeping your self on the edge but not letting go while your partner's has orgasms.

      Be happy as you are!

  6. QUESTION:
    What can I do to last longer in bed?
    OK, me and my girl been together for 2 months now. We have had sex 4 times now. I am having a problem. I cannot last a long time with her. She is the second person I have sex with in my life, and I want 2 spend the rest of my life with her. So, of course I want 2 make sure I can keep her happy. So, I am asking for real, is there anything I can do to last longer in bed? Is there something I can eat? Or, is there a vitamin I need to take? And, if not, what pill is legit for me to take for me to last longer in bed. Only answer if your helping me!

    • ANSWER:
      there is nothing (apart from viagra) that makes you keep it up longer. everyone is different.

      the fact that you say you want to spend the rest of your life with her is probably part of the problem, your very attached and your worried about not pleasing her which is contributing to your problem (because of stress

      thats not a bad thing, but be aware that if your constantly obsessing over it (counting the times your have sex is kinda obsessing) this problem wont go away any time soon.

      Talk to your girlfriend, if she cares - she will understand. Also try doing more excercise and eating healthy - this affects your libido a lot.

  7. QUESTION:
    What can improve my sexual stamina naturally?
    I'm 27, and I tried a bottle of viagra that lasted about a month. I don't want to keep getting those. My problem is not maintaining an erection, my problem is lasting long in bed sometimes. Are there any Vitamins or over the counter drugs I can take daily that will improve my stamina? I also know its more of a mind game with myself that allows me to perform in bed. Are there any pills that ease my mind?

    I looked at Enzyte at Walgreens but I don't want to buy that if all I need to do is eat the right vitamins and control my thoughts. What about Horny Goat Weed? Is that something that will help me?

    Basically, I just want to please my lady. She has a difficult time reaching her orgasm through intercourse at times, but she feels so good to me that I can't always hold mine back for too long. I always satisfy her orally but I don't want that to be the only way.

    Any advice will be appreciated. Thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      Every man is born with premature ejaculation, so having it is perfectly normal to start with. Controlling ejaculation is something you have to learn just as you had to learn to control your bladder as a child. We get taught to control our bladders but no one teaches us how to control ejaculation.

      The American Academy of Family Physicians confirms that: Behavioral methods are helpful for more than 95 percent of men who have premature ejaculation. So, if you have tried exercises and they have not helped it is because they have not been explained properly to you. Many of the treatment programs offered online have not been written by professionals.
      Do not waste time or money on sprays, vitamins, herbs, dietary supplements or drugs. This is a learning problem and these things will not help you learn to control ejaculation any more than they can help you to learn to speak another language.

      There are a lot of high-priced programs advertised online but all you need is an inexpensive little book written by a doctor and sex therapist that has been used successfully around the world for more than 32 years.

      It is called "Lasting Longer: The Treatment Program for Premature Ejaculation" by Dr. Sy Silverberg M.D. For more information just search for the authors name: Dr. Sy Silverberg M.D.

    I got a question about my sex life?
    OK, me and my girl been together for 2 months now. We have had sex 5 times now. I am having a problem. I cannot last a long time with her. She is the second person I have sex with in my life, and I want 2 spend the rest of my life with her. So, of course I want 2 make sure I can keep her happy. So, I am asking for real, is there anything I can do to last longer in bed? Is there something I can eat? Or, is there a vitamin I need to take? And, if not, what pill is legit for me to take for me to last longer in bed. Only answer if your helping me!

    • ANSWER:
      First of all, lets begin with diet. Avoid alcohol and tobacco before sex. Tobacco can slow-down blood circulation, and can make erections difficult. Alcohol can also make erections difficult, but it also inhibits muscle control and you have muscles in your penis.

      You can take things that help your heart, like B vitamins, fish oils, and things like that. Circulation and blood pressure is important in sex, so diet can impact your sex life. You want to have normal blood pressure. If you suffer from high blood pressure, you may want to ask your doctor about medications to lower your blood pressure.

      There isn't really a magic pill that makes you last longer. Viagra can give you an erection, but it wont prevent premature ejaculation.

      There are other things you can try though. A few years ago, Trojan brand condoms released a condom that claimed to prevent premature ejaculation. It accomplished this feat by including 0.5% benzocain inside the condom. Benzocain is a very mild topical ointment, that numbs the area it comes in contact with. If you've ever used Oraljel, which pretty much everyone who has a baby has, then you're familiar with benzocain. Benzocain is the active ingredient of Oraljel. Except, Oraljel contains 1% benzocain, instead of just 0.5%. Oraljel can actually be added to any condoms you already own, and will accomplish the same thing, for far less money.

      Basically, you still feel pleasure, but your penis is numbed. Premature ejaculation is often a result of over-stimulation. Of course, stimulation can come from more than just vaginal penetration. You may want to avoid falacio or masturbation prior to intercourse. Actually, some people claim you should masturbate a few hours prior to intercourse, so that you aren't as stimulated during sex, but masturbation as foreplay, can over-stimulate you.

      You can still cuddle. You can still perform cunnalingus on her. You can still kiss and you can still do other things. Just try to avoid stimulating your penis, prior to sex.

      Infact, if you really love her and want to please her, you should learn to focus on cunnalingus. A large percentage of women can only orgasm from clitoral stimulation, rather than vaginal stimulation. Many women don't even include penetration, when masturbating, or enjoying oral. They simply like their clitoris's to be stimulated. Often the clitoris is so sensitive, especially once erect, that you'll need to manipulate it over the hood, and not directly. The clitoris contains 6000 nerve endings. To give you some idea of just how many these are. Her G-spot majora has 2000, and her G-spot Minora and has another 2000. Her Clitoris has more than double the nerve endings of both of her G-spots combined. That's how much she enjoys that part of her body. Your penis head, has 4000 nerve endings and the base of your penis has 2000 nerve endings. Basically, your penis is an elongated clitoris, with an attached urethra. If you look at a clitoris in a CTscan, you'll see that its actually about 3" long, but only the tip protrudes to the surface. Men actually have about 3-4 extra inches below the surface too. Its kinda a fun fact, so technically, you can claim to be about 3-4" longer than you appear to be. :-) Another fun fact is that a man's shoe size doesn't determine his penis size, but the length of his index finger does often reflect the length of his limp penis. 90% of men are the length of their index finger when limp. So, its kinda interesting to look at a man's hands. Typically, they only double in size when erect, so if his index finger is 3" long, then he's probably only 6" long erect. Big feet may not mean anything, but big hands do.

      Back to your premature ejaculation problem though. You may want to try using a thicker condom. I tend to avoid thin condoms, just because they're easier to tear. Not using a condom at all, will create the most stimulation, and will make lasting longer, very difficult. The thicker the condom, the less you'll be stimulated, and actually the safer the sex will be, so its kinda a win-win situation.

      Are you familiar with Kegel exercises? You may have heard of them, but you probably know them as something that only women who have had babies do. Well, men do them too. But, men do them a bit difficultly, of course. The concept is simple, you have muscles down there, and if you exercise your muscles, they grow stronger and you even gain control over them. Many urologists teach men how to do Kegel exercises, so they can control streams of urine.

  11. QUESTION:
    How can I get energy that lasts longer? I've tried everything!?
    I've tried so many things and nothing seems to work...I'm tired most of the day, even though I always get a full nights sleep. I even take naps...and I sleep really good. But when I'm awake, I have OK energy, but it wipes out and I just want to lay down and relax even if I didn't do anything.

    Coffee gives me a burst for only an hour then makes my stomach hurt.

    Energy drinks make me VERY jittery at first, but then keeps me awake most the night so I'm even more tired the next day.

    5 Hour Energy just keeps me awake and makes me focused, but I don't necessarily have more energy. I still want to go to sleep but can't. I feel like a zombie, not to mention it tastes AWFUL and is expensive.

    Green tea doesn't really give me more energy. It just tastes good.

    I've tried vitamins, but nothing happens.

    I've tried to exercise, and even though I feel great afterwards, I still want to get in the bed and it's very rare that I have enough energy to even start a workout.

    • ANSWER:
      Probably get better energy from food, rather than drinks. Pasta, nuts, porridge etc.

  12. QUESTION:
    Vitamins make me nauseous?
    I know that if you take too many vitamins they can make you feel sick. And I thought that they mostly make you sick if you take them on an empty or almost empty stomach. But this morning I ate strawberries, half a banana, and yogurt and I took one multivitamin and it made me really nauseous. I always get nauseous from vitamins, why????? I've heard to take them at night so that I sleep through the nausea but if I'm up for a while in bed i start feeling nauseous before I fall asleep and then I have to fall asleep feeling nauseous. i don't stay nauseous for a long time, it comes in a wave. but i hate feeling nauseous more than anything, just a little while ago i thought i might even throw up from it. but it didnt last long. does anyone have any advice or knowledge to share with me? i'd really appreciate it. thanks

      They say that cervical mucous is important for the sperm in order to reach the egg. I would definately suggest that you use some "Preseed" lubricant. It's will make baby-dancing more enjoyable and increase your chances because his swimmers will have more of an advantage.

  14. QUESTION:
    Tired all the Time..anemia? depression? lack of vitamins? ..?
    Over the last 2 months ive been sleeping for nearly 10-12 hours a day.. and im still tired when i get up.
    ive tried setting alarms at 8.30am to get myself up, but i usually try and wangle a way into staying in bed longer.. my boyfriend sometimes takes it really personally, and i hate making him think that its his fault that im not gettin up.

    Im gettin low more often than usual too.

    My diet usually consists of : breakfast - either natural yog, with museli and sunflower seeds. or, scrambled egg on wholemeal toast, or bacon on wholemeal toast.
    lunch - it depends im hungry after breakfast as to wether ill have lunch.
    dinner - usually home-made chilli, or bolognase, or fish , perhaps tuna and jacket potatoes, stirfrys etc. i dont eat a lot of vegetables, but i feel my diet is usually quite healthy.

    i am still recovering from bulimia,(undiagnosed) and im doing really well. i also used to be a vegetarian, but because i was sleeping so much, i thought it was an iron deficiancy, and started eating meat again, and that helped for a while, but now im back to being tired all the time again...and my aunt said im a bit pale too.

    any thoughts or ideas as to what it could be or what i could do..

    should i see a doctor?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, you should certainly see a doctor for a blood test. You might also be suffering from depression without realising it (as with the bulimia you had) as long sleeping can be a symptom. But a health professional is the best person to help.

  15. QUESTION:
    Is too much Vitamin B linked to bed wetting?
    I think I might know what has been causing my recent incidents of bed wetting. For the past 4-5 days, I've been taking a vitamin B pill to help my bad cold. I was supposed to take it twice a day but I just started off once a day because the pills are so big. Then, the day that I started taking it twice a day, that's when my bed wetting incidents began. It happened like that for 3 days before I really even took notice of it. I haven't wet my bed for a really long time and I was really trying to figure out what made it start happening. So last night, I didn't take my vitamin B pill again that day and I didn't wet the bed. I'm not so sure if it is really working but I think it is. I only took one pill today and I'm not taking another one tonight and if it works out successful, then I would have known that was what caused it. I'm not so sure which vitamin B it was but I think I was taking vitamin B12 but I'm not so sure. But has too much vitamin B been proven to cause bed wetting in possibly some individuals like it was a side effect of some sort?

    • ANSWER:
      No, it hasn't been proven in any way to have that effect. As the person above said, it is theoretically possible that too high a dose of any chemical could irritate your bladder or urethra and cause problems. Also, B vitamins are water soluble (meaning you excrete excess amounts of them in urine) so it's also possible that a very high dose might cause increased urine production -- but if that were the case you would probably notice it during the day as well.

      My bet is that if anything, your recent bad cold might have more to do with it than the B vitamins. A bad cold will sap your energy and make you more tired at night, making it more difficult for your body to wake up in time to the sensation of a full bladder. Since you had the problem when younger, this is exactly the kind of stress on your system (physical stress, as opposed to emotional stress) that could push your body back into that response. Also, if you've been drinking more water than normal (which we often do with a cold, to ease congestion and throat irritation) that could obviously play a role too. Anyway, if both the cold and the bedwetting turn out to be gone -- great -- maybe after a few days like that, try another B vitamin pill just to make doubly sure, but I think it's very likely you'll find the cold, rather than the vitamins, to be more to blame.

  18. QUESTION:
    What is wrong with me? ?
    Whenever I stand up I black out; my ears start ringing, my vision goes out and everything is just black. Recently I've actually started fainting when this happens. I'll stand up, black out, and when I come to I'm on the floor. This has been going on for a while. It used to only last like 2 seconds tops but now it seems to be lasting much longer. I've been to the doctors before; they've done blood work, tested for anemia, tested my blood pressure and tested my blood sugar levels and everything was normal.

    It's been happening more and more recently. It used to be just when I was getting out of bed in the morning or if I was stretching but now it's almost every time I stand up.

    I also get lightheaded a lot. I'll be at work just standing doing whatever and then I'll feel myself like start to tip over and I have to sit down for a minute.

    I don't think it's dehydration or anything like that; I drink plenty of fluids, I don't drink soda, I take a multivitamin daily and I eat pretty healthily. My blood work says I'm not deficient in any key vitamins or anything like that. On paper everything seems to be fine; but I don't feel fine.

    What could be going on? Is there something the doctors could be missing? Maybe I'm just a frail person in general...

  19. QUESTION:
    how to deal with anxiety?
    I have started suffering from panic attacks about a month ago, they came at completely random times (not when I was stressed or scared) but when I would be walking around with friends or lying in bed. I have seen several doctors because I thought this was due to my stomach issues. I was constantly nauseous or having diarrhea. After talking with a therapist I noticed that the physical issues came from Anxiety and she immediately prescribed me various medications that made my symptoms worse. I know you are supposed to take them for at least 4 weeks for your body to get used to them but after reading the package I noticed that when you stop these side effects may worsen and last longer. I do not want to take any strong medications for this on a long term basis anyway so I switched to homeopathic remedies. I had one doctor prescribe me Neurodoron which is a natural remedy and has made my symptoms lessen tremendously, however I still have random anxiety for no reason. For example, getting to sleep at night is sometimes very hard or before work I get very anxious. I am leaving next week to go on a vacation with Friends and would like to know how to cope with these feelings. I do not want to feel miserable the whole time.
    I look online every day about how to cope with anxiety but all of the websites are so general. They say to do breathing exercises and take certain vitamins but what breathing exercises and which vitamins? Nobody is specific on what to actually do. I started taking vitamin B tablets every day because I heard they work but I still have feelings of nauseousness and constipation often.
    Does anybody know of any websites that give specific examples of how to deal with it, or tell me personally what to do. I am feeling very lost lately and want to get on with my life since I will be traveling soon which I have been waiting years to do and do not want to miss out on anything because I am scared to go outside.

    Any advice would be helpful, although I have read most tips online,

    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      I actually work in a tanning salon and another lady came in with the same exact problem today. She's closterfobic and won't do any of the laydown beds, but she doesn't mind the stand-up booth. She was complaining about her legs not tanning and my manager explained to her that every once in a while you should try a laydown. The stand-up is stronger, but the laydowns get every side of your legs. You don't have to use it every time, but once every other week or so.

      We solved the problem by showing her our Mega bed since it's our biggest & roomiest bed. She agreed to try it next time she's in.

      As for the lotion part of the question, I've been using the Gorgeous Gams by Designer Skin for a while now and it took a few tans but its working great for me now. If not that, maybe try the Legs Have It by ProTan, Leg Perfector by Suddenly Sun, and Dark Sexy Legs by Matahari. I know those are all good too.

      Another thing, maybe try shaving your legs before you tan. When you shave, you're taking that top layer of skin off your legs and your pours are more likely to be open and tan a bit quicker.

      Hope it helps.

  22. QUESTION:
    Has anyone ever tried this?
    If you have trouble getting a good night's sleep, try this all natural sleep aid. (It will take some preparation but it will be worth it.)

    30 minutes before bed:

    Drink one small glass of warm milk.
    Drink one small cup of Chamomile tea.

    Take the daily recommended dose of zinc
    Take the daily recommended dose of magnesium
    Take the daily recommended dose of vitamin B6

    (It's OK to take a multi B complex as well, but B6 is the one you're really looking for here.)

    You will be amazed how well you sleep, especially during the morning hours roughly between 4am and 8~9am. Your REM cycles will be deeper, last longer and take you to the distant worlds of the dream time realm.

    Remember that if you get enough zinc, magnesium and B6 in general you will sleep better, but if you take them all regularly, the "impact" will be lessened. I usually do this when I have the next day off and can sleep in. Do you know any other ways to get a good night's sleep? Please tell me!

Other days they look like a black and blue mark and my friends ask me "What's wrong" and I get annoyed because I can be all smiles and they will still ask that. Then I look at my eyes and reallize how tired and depressed I look.

    Every night I get the recomended 7-9 hours of sleep. I usually go to bed around 10 and wake up at 6, so thats 8 hours. Sometimes homework keeps me up until around 11, but that's still 7 hours. On the weekends I sleep until 8 or 9 to catch up on sleep but generally Im a person that likes to go to bed early so I can get a fresh start the next day.

    For awhile I thought the cause was using the computer too much, I thought that maybe it caused the circles. Infact I went a day without usuing the computer to see how it would affect me, and the circles seemed to be getting lighter. However this didn't last long.

    I read an online article about how a lack in vitamins could be the cause...well how can I find out what vitamin I am lacking in?

    Have you ever had this problem? What could be the cause? How should I resolve it? Is it worth seeing a doctor for?

    • ANSWER:
      I am young too, and I have the same problem. But sleeping with 2 pillows raises your head so you don't get as much swelling and it really helps! I also have used tons of eye products but some are too oily an make me break out. I found some realllyyyy good eye creams here .... DermaGlow.myarbonne.com

  26. QUESTION:
    Animal Pak, N O Xplode, Cell Mass, NO2 workout questions. Is BSN Nitrix Good? easy 10 points for you!?
    Hi, i recently bought a 2 pound protein and a small animal pak.

    Hopefully I could make them both last about 3 weeks. It was like 50 bucks for both but I dont mind cause i need something good while I cyled off NO2 and creatine. ( just finished 60 scoops of N O Xplode and 40 of Superpump 250 and 60 scoops of Cell mass)

    My question is, The super pump or N O Xplode didn't really do much to give me this "Metal Focus" or "Pump" they say you feel, and I was taking close to 4 scoops at times. But I guess thats enough NO2 for my body especially since its the first times I take such Nitric Oxide Supplements. I was wondering when I do go back on my cycle of NO2 and creatine, Should I stay on the Animal Pak?

    Also should I buy another Cell Mass because It lasted about 3 weeks longer than N O Xplode cause the scoops are smaller, and I only take it right after my workout, Followed by a good scoop or 2 of protein shake 20-30 mins later.

    I Know Animal Pak is the best Multi Vitamins and Minerals thing, And should be the foundation of every body builders routine, Just like Protein. My main question is WHEN is the best to take it? Yesterday was my first day taking the animal pak, I only have 15 of them so I kind of "loaded" and took one pak in the morning and another before bed with a slow digesting protein shake. I will probably buy a 44 pack of it online later, but for now all i have is about 12 left.

    Some people say the best time to take it if you only take one pack is in the morning with breakfast. Others say before bed is good since its the longest period you go without pissing all the Vitamins out. Others say right before a workout on empty stomach, which i might do since I am on my "Off" Cycle with the Nitric Oxide and currently take nothing pre- workout.

    Also I really want to get a 6 pack fast, I am very close to getting it and I could do a good 150-200 crunches nonstop. I know my abs are strong and its just a matter of time before my 6 pack pops out. My diet is good, All I need is a good Cardio foundation to burn more calories to get the 6 pack.

    Is it good if I set aside one day of the week (Saturday, when I have a lot of energy when I wake up) and do real heavy cardio? I am talking about burning a good 500 calories or more in about an hour and a half. Like jogging 5 miles on the tredmill nonstop and maybe work my way up like half a mile every Saturday morning.

    Another question regarding this cardio routine is, since I am still doing heavy lifting even when I am not on the NO2 or creatine supplements, will I still get more Muscle Mass and Cut since I am doing that heavy Cardio? Should I take an animal Pak on the day I do the heavy Cardio? What about Protein shake when I am done?

    Thanks I really need help on these basic questions that I believe any good workout knowledgeable person should know. If you could answer most or some of these questions I have I really would appreciate it. I will choose the best answer in 2 or 3 days. Thanks.

    P.S Anyone that has used BSN Nitrix is it good? I hear it gives you good energy throughout the day, and should be taken 1-2 times a day on training days. If this is true, I will probably get it instead of N O Xplode in about 3 weeks. hopefully the 360 pack one so it could last me a while.

    Thanks

  27. QUESTION:
    How to use a tanning bed safely?
    I'm a pale skin male and i sometimes get acne. Last summer i discovered that sitting in the sun for a tan would basically clear the acne. And i'm not talking about covering it up, i'm talking about clearing it.

    Now when the summer was gone, acne was back, and i found a relation between Vitamin D and acne caused by a weak immune system. I used a tanning bed for a few times and surprisingly the effect was the same, the acne cleared.

    I need to know how to use a tanning bed safely, perhaps as safe as the real sun (which i consider pretty safe as long as you don't burn, and I won't listen to the suggestion of the people trying to sell me sunscreen lotions).

    I'm not looking for answers such as "don't use it cause it causes skin cancer", so if you're the kind of person that believes sunlight is a huge risk, never heard of Vitamin D and don't realize humans are genetically meant to be out in the sun and born without clothing, I honestly don't need your answer.
    This isn't just a cosmetic issue. It's not about being pale or being tanned. It's about looking and feeling horrible or looking great. I believe the stress and the social problems created by acne on a pale skin is way more damaging than sun could ever be.

    • ANSWER:
      There are lots of people now who are using tanning beds not for vanity reasons or get a cosmetic tan but for the vitamin D production that it generates which some people find helps to clear their acne or psoriasis.

      If you want to use a tanning bed responsibly then follow a few simple rules:
      - Start out on the smallest time possible, even if it is only 3-5 minutes.
      - Slowly build up your time and increase your tanning time in one minute increments.
      - Don't go more often than once every two days.
      - If your skin is still red more than 24 hours later then you need to reduce your tanning time.

      So you need to get your skin used to the UV exposure gradually, that's why you start out small and increase your time slowly. You also want to give your skin enough time to replenish between sessions so don't go more often that once every two days. The most important thing is to avoid sunburn so if you are still red more than 24 hours later then you need to reduce your time.

      If you have pale skin then you might find that you will only go in for 3 minutes at first and do that for one month before increasing your time to 4 minutes for another two weeks. After that you might find that your skin is adapting to the UV exposure and so you will quickly increase your time to 6 minutes before you plateau again for another month. After that you might find that 6 minutes is long enough to keep the acne clear while not getting sunburn so that's where you might stay or you might increase your time again.

  28. QUESTION:
    Nausea getting worse the longer I take Percocet?
    I have a condition that causes a great deal of pain during flare ups and I'm now in the middle of one of the worst flare ups I've ever had. I can usually manage the pain with just OTC pain killers but this time it's just not possible so I have finally relented to taking the Percocet my doctor prescribed for an occasion such as this. I started by taking just 1/2 tablet a day around 1pm and that would skate me through until bed time. About a week later I started taking a full tablet once a day and while the side effects increased a tad, they were all manageable. I always take it with my lunch, which I buff up a bit just to make sure I have enough food in my stomach. This last week, the third week I've been taking it daily, the nausea has become worse and I threw up for the first time today. I've taken Percocet in the past with both of my C-sections and never experienced any side effects at all... no itching, sweating, dry mouth, or nausea, and I was taking 2 every 6 hours then as opposed to 1 a day. This time I experienced all of these side effects, but all except the nausea have gone away completely. It still covers the pain well enough, but I'm worried about the nausea getting progressively worse. I do take other medications at 8am such as 2 Sudafed, 1 multi-vitamin, 1 vitamin C, 1 birth control pill, 1 Prilosec OTC, and 1 50mg Zoloft (at 11pm). Could it be that one of these pills is helping cause the nausea or that I'm developing an allergy?

    • ANSWER:
      I agree with the first answer. That's a lot of pills. Pills are so hard for a body to digest.

      When I was taking birth control pills, I once had to do a round of antibiotics and the nausea was overwhelming. So that could be a factor.

      Is Prilosec for heartburn? Heartburn medications are notorious for messing up the functions of a stomach.

  29. QUESTION:
    I have an Upper Respiratory Virus?
    My throat kills, my head feels stuffy as does my nose. My upper chest, close to the throat, hurts mildly when I cough, and i'm short of breath. Doing things such as swim practice, riding my bike and walking make me feel dizzy and tired. I went to the doctor yesterday, and she diagnosed it as a virus. She told me to stay away from swim practice and the pool for about three days, and to basically lay in bed, take vitamins, rest a ton, and drink tea and medicine such as theraflu to soothe my symptoms. My question is, about how long do these types of viruses last? I have a meet on Tuesday, and i'm determined to be in full strength for it, but i'm afraid i'll still be feeling tired and weak.

    • ANSWER:
      im sorry to hear that. i know what its like i get sick a lot. it really just depends on you if you get sick often then it will usually last longer but if your relatively health then you should feel at least a little better in a few days. and you might want to try taking an anti inflammatory.

  30. QUESTION:
    My heart rate is at 105 two hours after running?
    I haven't ran long distance in about 3 months (I've been weight training and doing martial arts). Today I went on a run because I wanted to start conditioning for the cross country season this fall and ran about 4 miles in 30 minutes. Now 2 hours later my heart rate is at 105 after eating and laying on the couch. I'm not unhealthy, I obsess with eating right and exercise. I feel fine now and felt the way I always do during and just after the run, it's just my heart rate is this high that worries me.
    I thought it could be because I haven't ran in a while and I didn't get much sleep last night (I took B vitamins right before bed, bad idea). I'll keep measuring my heart rate for the next few days, but has this ever happened to anyone? I'm 16, male, weight 140.
    Nope, I didn't drink any caffeine. Haven't drank a pop sense August 2007 and don't remember anytime I ever drank coffee, I only drink water.

    • ANSWER:
      Did you have any caffeine? Your heart rate could still be higher than normal after running. Your body is still burning calories and working long after you stop running. I wouldn't sweat it just yet. You are young and very active from the sounds of it. Keep an eye on it and if it is like that for a few more days, ask your doctor.

  31. QUESTION:
    How can i treat anxiety without medication?
    This summer i was diagnosed with anxiety. I've taken 3 types of medications and neither one of them has worked for me. The last one that i tried was Paxil which made me feel absolutely horrible for about 3 days, after just taking one dosage. I have muscle tension, pains in my neck, back and shoulder, headaches, and not to mention all these other weird pains throughout my body. Every morning i dread getting out of bed. I no longer want to take medications anymore because of the bad experiences that i have had with them. The stress between my finances, boyfriend, school and work is overwhelming and i know that it isn't helping my anxiety, but i need some relief for these symptoms. Does anyone know of any vitamins, minerals, or remedies that i could take to treat my anxiety without medication?

    • ANSWER:
      Medicine can't do anything.
      It can make you feel better, but it can't make you better.

      Anxiety is something nobody wants to live with. Anxiety can be accompanied by physical sensations such as heart palpitations, nausea, chest pain, shortness of breath, stomach aches, or headache Here are some things you can do:

      - Positive Thinking. Look on the bright side.

      - When nervous, stroke or pet an animal. This makes you heart rate slow down, and makes you calm down, because you feel needed.

      - Do a body melt. In order to do this, sit or lay down. Take a deep breath. Imagine your legs getting heavy.....now your stomach...Now your chest....Now the rest of you. Breathe in, hold your breath for five seconds, and release.

      - Take a deep breath. Imagine as the air comes out your worries come with it.

      Good luck!

  32. QUESTION:
    Will waking up at different hours disturb your sleep cycle?
    I have been having lots of trouble sleeping for an extremely long time now. My work schedule is not normal. There are days that I will have to be to work for 7:30AM and the next day I won't have to be there until 2 PM. Last week I had a shift that started at 5PM. The bottom line is that every day it's different hours. I wake up different times of the day. Does that have anything to do with why I can't sleep? I try to take an over the counter sleeping vitamin, but it doesn't help. I've taken prescriptioned pills before, but they only worked for like 2 weeks. After that I became immune to them I guess you could say. I have read that hot tea, milk, and even excercising before bed will help. I've tried all of those and no luck yet.

    • ANSWER:
      My answer to your question is "Yes". The waking up different hours naturally disturb your sleeping cycle. If you are in habit to sleep at a fixed time. say at 10 PM, and when you don't go to sleep at this time, your sleeping habit will be disturbed. It is a natural cycle which is not to be disturbed and it should continue to take its place.I however agree that light exercise and walking before going to bed can help to overcome your disturbed schedule and you can continue to do it as long as your habit of sleeping does not clash with your habits.

  33. QUESTION:
    Is it okay to switch my puppy's food from "puppy" to "dog" food?
    My puppy has been eating Purina One healthy puppy food and he is 11 months and will be a year at the end of August. He's about 45/50 pounds and I'm wondering if it would be okay to switch him to the Purina One "dog" food now or would that mess with his health? He eats about 3-4 cups a day so the little bags just don't last him long anymore and I haven't been able to find a bigger bag of that brand/kind in the stores around where I live. Also, since it's the same brand of food should I still do a gradual change or will it mess with his stomach too much if I just start giving him the adult kind now? I know that puppies should eat puppy food for a certain amount of time, but I am confused on big dogs are considered adults at "this age" and little dogs are considered adults at "that age" and I consider mine to be "medium" sized. So I am worried about making the switch too soon. He does takes puppy vitamins every day and his health is very important to me, I even brush his teeth at least every other night before bed because I learned that many dogs can develop serious health conditions by age 3 due to poor oral-hygiene. Plus stinky dog breath is not fun. =)

    I'm a student in college and I really do my best to give him everything he needs to be happy and healthy because he means so much to me. So I would really appreciate any help/tips anyone can provide. (Just please don't be mean.)

    • ANSWER:
      At that age, it won't hurt a thing. The big difference between puppy chow and adult food is the rate of growth. Puppy chow is part of the same science that allows us the affordable meat for our tables. The best informed owners of large breed puppies put them on an all life stages food before their peak growing period to slow growth allowing their joints to develop under less stress. some people even wean on an all life stages food. Check the fine print on the adult bag. It may say''...tested and found suitable for all life stages'' on it.

      Some adult foods and even some all life stages foods have over 1.5% calcium. That is OK for adults, but bad for large breed puppies under 7 months since they can't excrete excess calcium.

      I make a gradual switch from puppy to adult for my puppies. It isn't that much bother and who needs digestive upsets.

  34. QUESTION:
    Is this depression or something else?
    Basically whats going on here is near the end of november I would get in random bad moods that didn't last long, but really sucked.
    Then i got very sick the last weekend that led into december and was achy, weak, tired all the time, and what i think was depression. Then i had blood work done and was told i was low in vitamin D. The feelings started to lift b4 i started taking vitamin D. which btw i started taking and am still taking since about mid december. The feelings of depression started again around christmas, each day i was in and out of the mood, but not really bipolar type, just really sad to "ok". the feelings took a break again for about a week after new years and now for the last week almost i have felt horrible, mentally. I'm only 15 and i find myself sad for no reason, i even didn't wanna go to my friends B day party. I have been going to school through it and today i was alright through most of the day then got home and crashed on my bed watching t.v and thinking i'm going crazy and getting myself in a horrible mood. my mom has scheduled an appointment with a counselor so that if it is depression i can treated, or just talk to someone. I just wanna know if anyone has an opinion, maybe this happened to them? Maybe it's just seasonal affect dis order and i'm letting my mind get carried away with things. PLease help!

    • ANSWER:
      We get Vitamin D from the sun.

      The sun is further from us in the winter. Therefore we get less vitamin D.

      Its called "Seasonal Affective Disorder", most people call it winter depression. I have it too.

      Just try to go outside on the sunny days.

  35. QUESTION:
    is this just nervous behavior or?
    am I getting sick in some way? I haven't been feeling well for a year [or many years, it's kind of off and on] I'm 16 years old. I have asthma [frequent asthma attacks]. Here are some things that have been going on:
    -It always feels like I'm dehydrated even though I drink a lot of water on a daily basis. I always get that "I'm going to pass out then throw up" feeling that comes with being dehydrated. And sometimes I actually DO throw up/pass out.
    -My asthma is triggered by everything [from allergies to stressful situations]
    -I'm very thin. My metabolism is really fast. Whenever I eat a lot of food, I tend to LOSE weight. That really bothers me because whenever I hardly eat, I lose weight too [I am hardly ever hungry. Really small appetite I suppose? But I force myself to eat 3 meals a day.]
    -I'm always feeling faint and shaky. I can't be outside too long or I feel sick.
    -I'm always sick. My family and friends try to avoid me when they are sick because they've noticed that I tend to get colds/flus 10x worse than theirs. [I'm not sexually active so don't EVEN joke about AIDS. I get enough of those jokes from my friends. Not funny.]
    -My skin is almost translucent looking [not a lot of melanin or whatever even when I'm out in the sun. Veryyyyy sensitive skin.]
    -I can't eat/drink certain things with some kind of sugar in it because it hurts my stomach verry badly. [Example: if I drink a coke, I get a stomach ache and I have to go to the bathroom to remove it maybe 10 minutes after drinking. Happens every time.]
    -I get nervous very easily and I have annoying habits [fidgeting, playing with jewelry, pulling at eyebrows/eyelashes, and most of the time my stomach gets so upset that I end up in the bathroom then I am shaky/weak for the rest of the day]
    -I always seem to know when something bad is about to happen. My body tells me by making me feel dehydrated and sick [today was the most recent day this has happened. I got the sick feeling, had an asthma attack afterwards, then I found out one of my family members had been crying over some personal problems.]
    -I don't get much sleep. My body always wakes me up at certain times EVERY day no matter when I go to bed at night. I wake up at 4 a.m. If I go back to sleep, I wake up at 5:30, then 7:45ish, then 9:25ish, then somewhere between 10-11 if I continue to keep trying to go to sleep. I'm an extremely light sleeper.
    -I don't know if this is relevant, but when I'm on my period [I know, bad subject] I get REALLY bad cramps...like blackout and scream for an hour cramps. And my period always lasts a longg time [longer than most people I know] and no pain medications help [ibuprofen, mydol, tylenol, etc]

    All of this is probably just the way my body functions [there's probably lots of people who are like this], but lately it's been really bad and I'm always feeling ... real BAD. And it's stressing me out because I'm usually a very mellow/happy person. But lately something just FEELS wrong. And my friends are starting to notice it [without me telling them. I get asked all the time "are you alright? you look sick." "why are you so thin? are you anorexic?"]

    Does anyone else have these nervous behaviors/stomach problems? Advice?

    I'm just freaking out because it's been getting worse this year and it's actually starting to affect my daily life more than it used to. I don't take any medications [except my asthma medicine, but I've been taking that since I was in 2nd grade] so I'm curious to know if I am overreacting and I'll grow out of it or if maybe I should see a doctor.

    I know for sure I need to start taking vitamins, I'm way too thin and weak [even if I work out for weeks. I stopped that because I can hardly handle it anymore]

    Advice :D ?

    I forget if I already said this but, I go to the bathroom a LOT. And every time when I'm done, I always feel super weak like "I just threw up many times after stomach flu" weak. In fact, I feel that way right now and I'm not sick.

    I don't know if any of these things are related to each other, but it can't hurt to mention everything I can think of right? haha.
    I have gone to the bathroom so many times today it's ridiculous. It's like there's something my body is desperate to remove and it's driving me CRAZY. It's like an off/on thing some days I'm completely fine, some days I feel horrible like I do today.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm not a doctor, but most of those symptoms are consistent with "Addison's disease". This is caused by a cortisol deficiency. The Common symptoms are:
      Fatigue
      Growing muscle weakness
      Loss of appetite
      fainting
      Low blood pressure
      Nausea
      Vomiting
      Stomach cramps

      Less common symptoms:
      Shakiness
      Difficulty Concentrating
      Hyper pigmentation (It seems you actually have hypo pigmentation, which suggests that you might not have addison's.)

      Also if you have a severe adrenal problem then you could also experience:
      Confusion
      Fever
      Pale Face and extremities
      Loss of sleep or sudden sleepiness
      Dehydration caused by vomiting or diarrhea

      You have a remarkable number of those symptoms, including all the common ones, and most of the ones more characteristic of this specific condition. You might want to see a doctor soon. Addison's can start suddenly, but usually doesn't stop for the remainder of the person's life. It can cause all of these symptoms and eventually be fatal. So, it's not something you want to mess around with, and it's completely treatable. Although, it's a rare condition, so your symptoms might be caused by plenty of other things as well. Here's some pages on Addison's.

    I'm 8 wks pregnant, really struggling with these symptoms, is it normal?
    I'm 8 weeks pregnant today, I feel soooo tired all day, and work in an office, it's so difficult to keep my concentration, I end up just staring into space. I feel sick all day long from getting up to going to bed (not actually been sick). One minute I'll look at some food and thing 'oh I really fancy that' and then the next minute I can't bear it anywhere near me. If I do eat something I fancy then 10 mins later it's like it doesn't agree and I feel even worse! I also seem to be struggling with drinking, I am forcing myself to drink my water but it really is a struggle. Has anyone else gone of drinking too? I know this is needed so no matter what I'll drink plenty, but it's all such a nightmare! I've been taking my vitamins since before I fell pregnant so thats all ok, but I'm just worrying why I'm going off everything, even drinking water and stuff.

  38. QUESTION:
    please help! don't know what happened, or if it was a seziure? please answer i need help?
    i've been really weak lately. my arms feel like my muscles are deflated. and right when i stand up, i feel like my legs are going to give out on me a lot. when i stand up everything gets completely black, not for long though. and sometimes i can keep my arm up long enough to do my make up or pour milk. not all the time, some days i'm hyper and these things don't bother me but usually they do. this has been happening for a few weeks now.
    my doctor thought it was because I had low blood sugar or something wrong with my liver so i went to get my blood taken for a few different things and they all came up pretty normal. they just said a little iron in my system would probably help. so since then I've been taking women vitamins with a good amount of iron in them.
    everyday i feel weaker and weaker. and i'm not a weak person, i don't lay in bed all day. i do swim team every winter. I've gotten my black belt a year ago and i play volleyball. i'm not doing any sports for a few months right now, i'll probably do swimming in the winter. i go on walks about everyday or every other day to the store. but i am a kid, i don't like go to the gym constantly or anything. it's my summer break. i eat healthy, fruits, pasta, get lots of water and cranberry juice. i don't eat junk food very much, sometimes as snacks. i don't think what happened to me was my fault. and my moms keeps telling me she thinks what happened to me was because of me. she's making me walk more, making sure i take a vitamin everyday. which i already do..

    what happened was i had just had a bowl of cereal and i went to my room to call my friend, a brought a glass of water and started drinking and was like i really have to pee. so i got up slowly, knowing if i get up too fast everything will go black. but everything was just really foggy. i walked out of my room and into the hallway, when i got there everything turned black very quickly. but not for 20 seconds... it didn't go away. if things go black i know to grab a wall to hold on to, but i tried moving my arms to grab one and i couldn't. it happened fast and i don't remember exactly what did happened but i remember my whole body gave out on me, and all of a sudden my head hit into the wall really hard. then i remember lying on my hallway floor shaking terribly with my arms pulled up to my head. it was the scariest thing that's ever happened to me :( i was laying in a ball or had my legs bent? not exactly sure. but my eyes were closed or everything was black. and i was just laying there shaking terribly. i knew i was laying on a floor and i knew i needed help but i couldn't breathe and i couldn't control my body. i couldn't open my eyes or see anything. and i couldn't get control of my arms to make the stop shaking. i felt paralyzed. it scared me to death not knowing what was happening and not being able to stop it and my head sort of went numb. i don't know how long it lasted, i don't think too long but next thing i remember is looking around my hallway not knowing where i was, i didn't recognize my hallway. i felt kind of like i was in a dream. i for some reason thought my friend was here so i was laying on the floor yelling his name so maybe he could help me. but after feeling a little better i crawled back into my room, remembering i was home alone. and i just feel EXTREMELY weak now. a lot of fatigue. my head hurts of course but that's probably just because i hit it on the wall. i called my mom crying because i was really freaked out and she said to put in an exercise dvd and work out maybe but i'm shaking still and i don't feel like i can doing anything right now besides lay in bed.
    i've had times before where everything would go black and it's start shaking but it never worried me this bad. and i never fell to the ground, just leaned on a wall.
    i know it could sound like a seizure but i don't know much about them. i don't know if it could be something else. i know i could go to a neurologist but i doubt my mom would take me. she thinks i just need to work out more or something

    • ANSWER:
      hi, it may have been a seizure but whatever it was you need to see a doctor. if it happens again call an ambulance.

      it is possible to be conscious during seizures or to be able to still be able to hear things, there are so many types of seizures. i have epilepsy and i have different types of seizures. i had a myoclonic seizure recently as a side effect of a painkiller. i was conscious but my arms and legs were flying everywhere. it didn't scare me and i slept afterwards.

      there are drop seizures where you just walk along and lose consciousness briefly. i had those as a kid. all i'm saying is that there is something going on with you and your mother has a duty to protect you and get you healthcare when you need it.

      my advice is to keep a diary of all your symptoms along with a food, activity, sleep diary if you can mamage it. keep it on you. if you blackout again even briefly call for an ambulance and show the doctors your diary. to be on the safe side no swimming, take a shower not a bath and no driving.

      if it turns out to be seizures it's not that bad. medication helps and you get used to it.

      I'm not sure if u had a seizure but something is obviosely very wrong. I don't know but it's Probably a bad Idea to be home alone now. If you have a neighbor you know or family of friends that are responsible that live near by call them and tell them what happened and see if they will come over of Pick u up. Another option is to beg ur mom to cOme home. Or you could call an ambulance. If no, then I would suggest laying in a cold dark room with a phone nearby or maybe eating something with a good source of protein! I'm so sorry and I know you're scared but just hang in there hun

  44. QUESTION:
    HOw long does it take for Hypothyroid meds to take effect and lower TSH levels?
    I am curious to know if anyone else has been throught he up and downs of thyroid meds? I started at 11. something and got down to 3.something recently I started feeling bad so I got my labs done came back it had gone up to 5.21! How could it go up and down like that?? He incresed my Armour to 2 grains. I still feel like crap! I feel like I did when I started except for the freezing in bed under the covers! But I am so TIRED again weight gain is awful, depression, muscle twitchs, pain! I have been adjusting meds since last August! And it is still not right! Has anyone else gone throught his. I started with Synthroid but it made me too shakey and I could not sleep then I went to Armour, I do not have any side effects from Armour and because it has both T3 and T4 I heard it was better. I am at a loss, how could I be getting worse and my meds are higher then they were when i felt good? Also I was taking Standard process vitamins for adrenal function and my husband says I felt better then?

    • ANSWER:
      Hey sister,

      Thyroid hormones are slow-acting, so once you find the right level it can take a while for your body to catch up to your meds. Level can depend on a lot of things--like, if you gain weight you need more. Also, whether or not you have a thyroid (I don't anymore--cancer surgery). If you do, and you're supplementing an underactive one, your own thyroid may be producing different amounts at different times. People with Hashimoto's syndrome can have huge variations up and down from their own thyroid.

      Two dietary things to check out, if you still have a thyroid--are you getting enough iodine (which the thyroid needs to produce T4) and, are you eating too much soy? They've been finding that a diet high in soy can depress thyroid output. Remember to check any packaged foods--lots of them use soy now for extra protein and filler.

      Two EXCELLENT info sources-- Mary Shomon's thyroid info pages and newsletter on About.com, which you can have emailed to you or just read on line; and WebMD's discussion board on thyroid. The people there are really knowledgable.

      Also, as the other poster mentioned, you may have more than one thing going on. People with one autoimmune disease often have more than one--fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, lupus, etc. You may want to ask your doctor if you should be watching other symptoms.
      very best luck to you!

  45. QUESTION:
    if you get sunburn alot will you get leathery gross skin when you grow up or is that just from tanning beds?
    because i go out in the sun for like 5 hours at waterparks or the beach. BUT I DONT DO THIS EVERYDAY i am not a sun goddess.. only like.. once or twice a week? plus i put on neutrogena spf 90 but its not waterproof and i am usually with my friends who dont wear sunscreen, and dont like to wait for me to put it on, so i dont get to reapply it very often. so.. so far this summer i only got sunburn 2 times and it is june 30th.. i get sunburnt about 2 times a month. i am very scared about my skin when i grow up lol :(

    i think im gona try spf 50 waterproof to put over the spf 90 so it lasts longer at the beach and waterparks and stuff..

    but if this doesn't work will i get wrinkles and gross skin when i grow up?

    also i intake lots of vitamin C because i eat lots of oranges and orangejuice because i love the pulp so i think that also helps me lol.
    but i am still scared :[

    • ANSWER:
      Your still young so don't worry too much about getting leathery skin, you should be more worried about getting skin cancer. SPF 50 will help but you need to reapply it at least twice every hour.

  47. QUESTION:
    so dam tired all the time and having trouble sleeping (a few questions, kinda long...sorry!)?
    hi :)
    ok well ill be 29 weeks on tuesday and the past week ive been incredibly tired like last night i went to bed around 10ish and woke up at 10am this morning and i felt so tired i wanted to go back to sleep. its now 5:30pm and i feel exhausted and i havent even done anything all day!,
    but when i do try and sleep at night it takes me forever to get comfy and fall asleep no matter what i try i toss and turn for hours trying to get comfy (but im guessing that normal in the 3rd trimester so im not to worried about it)
    .i had my appointment with my midwife on monday and she did a blood test to check my iron levels and they came back a bit low and she called the doctor in to have a look at the results and ask me a few questions (like if i eat red meat and lots of vegies and stuff like that, all of which i do about 4-5 times a week) but cos my diet seemed okay he didnt seem concerned about my low iron level.
    i am anemic and before i fell pregnant i was on iron tablets and continued to be on them and my pre natal vitamins until my 24/7 all day long morning sickness set in and i was throwing up my vitamins i asked my midwife if i could stop taking them and she didnt seem fussed so i stopped taking them

    but should i be worried about them not being worried about my low iron level?
    and is there anything i can do about being tired all the time like start taking iron tablets again??

    • ANSWER:
      I am in the same position except I am now at 38 weeks and have been dealing with the anemia for months. if you can now stomach the vitamins it would be a good idea to take them. My Dr wanted me to continuw to take them. Although they have not been that worried about the numbers for a month or two. It probably would help your energy level to get your iron levels back up.

  48. QUESTION:
    Diflucan Side Effects?
    I was put on Doxycycline for an infection.. and since I always get yeast infections with antibiotics, my dr gave me 2 Diflucan pills to help prevent the yeast infection.. as we are going on vacation starting Sunday and I don't want to be dealing with that. She told me I could take 1 pill about 3 to 4 days into the antibiotics, which puts me at today, I haven't taken it yet.. Then take the 2nd one 3 to 4 days later. But I've been reading reviews, and so many people are saying they have issues with nausea and things like that.. so I'm worried. The doxycycline already causes a bit of an upset stomach, although I'm usually okay as long as I take it with food. I take it in the morning and my other one before bed. So I'm curious if It would be better for me to take the Diflucan in the middle of the day?.. or maybe after work at about 4:30. Would this help? or will it matter? How many of you have had this side effect? If it does happen, can you take anything for it? or does food help? I don't even know how likely it is. I know all of these reviews online have a tendancy to just scare people from something that most likely won't do anything. Also.. since I'm using it as preventative, will I really need to take the 2nd one? I just don't want to deal with side effects on our trip. Isthere anything you can do to prevent the side effects? And how long does it take after taking the first pill to know if you are going to have any side effects? Then how long do they last if you get them? Sorry for all of the questions.. :(

    Any thought or advice or experience with this medicine would be very helpful!! Thanks so much!
    Also I can't probiotics/yogurt and things like that, because you can't have any dairy products or vitamins 3 hours before or after taking the doxycycline antibiotic. And they generally don't work anyway.. I have tried them many times.

  49. QUESTION:
    28 male with osteoperosis, having more sudden pain?
    ok, so i suffered a non traumatic compression fracture last year in august by getting out of bed, it took MUCH longer to heal than what my doctor thought, then i still felt minor chronic back pain, which i knew was to be expected, and my doctors still dont know why i have osteo in the first place, i have a lack of vitamin d, but since being diagnosed with osteo, ive been on all the necessary meds to try and reverse and strengthen my bones.
    my question is this...i smoke cigs (pack a month usually) and i also smoke marijuana...heavily, and i dont notice the pain in my back when i smoke the cigs but when i smoke weed and i happen to take a big hit and i cough , i can immediately feel pain in my back, if i could describe it, it feels like a particular bone is weakining, and every time i smoke and cough it gets worse, i know the obvious answer is DONT SMOKE, its not that easy, im also bipolar and being high is extremely important in keeping my episodes calm...i want to know if the coughing can make things worse for my osteo and my back, sometimes i also feel pain in my left hip...i wouldnt rule out any kind of symptom because obviously this shouldnt be happening to me at my age and all, and that within a year no doctor is able to tell me why i have osteo in the first place aside from low vitamin d levels, smh, but its true...so im coming here to get some opinions and etc...
    thanks for any serious advice/help

    • ANSWER:
      There are a couple types of degenerative problems that can bring on this type of problem in someone younger. The best bet is to try and get to see your doctor, and then to have them to refer you onto an orthopedist, and they would be able to help you, and maybe possibly order some MRIs, Bone Scans, and Also possible some x-rays to be able to determine whether it is something i.e. Vitamin deficiency, a mineral disorder, or something like that which may be causing the weakening of the bones. This is not that common in someone younger, so by all means get it checked into further.

  50. QUESTION:
    What do you think I should do, I'm worried I may have CFS?
    Firstly this is going to be a long question, If your not actually interested in helping me, I'd say don't bother reading any further. I don't mean to be rude, but I don't want to waste your time and I don't want you to waste mine. So anyway, I have tried looking on forums etc, for people opinions but I seem to come across people just arguing. For the last 8months or so, I'm unsure of the exact onset, Ive felt extreme fatigue most of the time. Ive been to my GP and had bloods done, the only abnormality was low vitamin B12, I had a few injections but it barely helped at all. I continue to work part-time, 4-5 days a week, but i can't work out how, I am a divisional therapist in quite a large facility so it can be physically demanding often. Some days I feel like I am just going to collapse at any moment. On the weekends I sleep for long periods and don't actually get out of bed for even longer. To do house work I have to do it in small amounts or I get exhausted. Some mornings i almost fall asleep on my washing pile while getting changed. I do get out of the house on the weekend at about dusk when my energy levels seem to be the best, but after a while a wave of fatigue comes over me and i usually fall asleep where ever I'm sitting. I feel I push myself through because I am extremely scared about having to give up work and ambitions I have, but I can never stop yawning and I never feel refreshed, something isn't right. Do you think I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome? Can you suggest any doctors in the Brisbane area that may be able to help me?

    • ANSWER:
      I have autoimmune pernicious anaemia and i can't go two weeks without vitamin B12 let alone have a few injections in 8 months! zzzzzzz lol Check your B12 levels and make sure they are over 800pg/ml or 600pmol/l. My level was 1461pmol/l last time i checked. :) I take sublingual (under the tongue) oral B12 spray daily - 2000mcg (ug). I requested the bioceutical brand through Malouf Group Pharmacies. I'd prefer methylcobalamin but i can't find it anywhere so this is the next best thing. >>> http://www.bioceuticals.com.au/product.aspx?function=displayproduct&productid=261

      I still am a bit fatigued but nowhere near as much as with vitamin B12 deficiency. I also have vitamin D deficiency (live in Qld and have a tan! so this shocked me actually - i also use bioceutical vitamin D drops - 5000IU daily) and hashimoto's thyroiditis (autoimmune hypothyroidism) and both cause fatigue. I did find a really good link of someone who was misdiagnosed for 17 years with CFS and lists blood tests to request to find other possible causes of chronic fatigue (scroll down near the bottom of the forum).

Lasting Longer Bedroom

Decorating your child’s bedroom is nothing like decorating your own. It is important to make the distinction as early as possible so that you do not transfer adult design ideas and techniques to a child’s room.

In an adults room the primary focus is on style, comfort and relaxation. Most of our time spent in our bedroom is sleeping, we spend most of our waking time out of our bedrooms and in other areas such as the living room of the house. This is not true for children, they are less concerned about style, focusing instead on just whatever they like and enjoy. They also use their rooms for far more purposes than we would, from reading books, playing games, drawing and so on.

It is a good idea to take advantage of this multifunction idea of your child’s bedroom, by splitting the room in to distinct areas. This doesn’t have to be a literal division at all, and in most cases it would be impractical. The best way to implement the different sections of the room is to group furniture with the same purpose or that will be used for similar activities together.

Simple things like putting a comfortable small chair close to where your child’s books are kept makes it far easier for your child to start reading. A desk next to or near to the window allows for greater light when drawing or painting, as well as giving an area to do homework.

It is a good idea to give your child a lot of say in what their bedroom looks like, it is there’s after all! It will also allow them to feel a great connection to their room, as they will feel like they had a real impact on how it looks and the layout used.

In saying that, when it comes to a child’s bedroom it can often be a difficult task to mix what your child likes at the moment, and what they will like in a month’s time! As such it is important to try and decorate it in non-specific ways, focusing on colours and patterns that are not specific to a certain TV programme for example.

While children tend to love bright and beautiful colours such as bright reds, blues, pinks and so forth, try not to use too bright colours everywhere. They can tend to make the room too lively and will reduce the feeling of relaxation in the room, which is important when it comes to things such as sleeping or resting.

A great idea is to paint three of the walls in a light colour and one in a more vibrant but slightly darker shade of the same colour. The best place for this bolder wall is where the play area of the room is. This also has a dual purpose, as by having three light coloured walls and one darker wall it gives the illusion of making the room seem bigger – this works in any room of the house, not just your child’s room.

Finally children’s curtains should be fairly light, not just in colour but also in how much light they allow into the room, although it is advisable to not make them too light if there are street lights that might make sleeping difficult unless you include a blackout lining.

  1. QUESTION:
    lasting longer?
    how can i get my man to last longer in the bedroom department it just seems pointless takin any clothes off lol

    • ANSWER:
      The best way to have sex is play with eachother first... he can masturbate while stimulating your clitoris with his mouth. You will get turned on... and tell him to keep going untill he gets an erection again... and then for another tip... Have him push off against a wall with his feet... He will stimulate your G-spot by pushing further in... Tell him to rub you up and down while he is down there... Also make sure he gets something out of it as well.... If he orgasms first then sex can last to 3 hours....

  2. QUESTION:
    How can I make my boyfriend last longer in the bedroom?
    My boyfriend is a 26 year old man, and Im wondering how to make him last longer in the bedroom. Within 5 minutes, hes done and ready for bed, Not saying that 5 minutes isnt great, but I dont reach orgasm in that time.

    • ANSWER:
      Nail his feet to the floor, lock the door and hide the key in the dark. He has to stay then.

      If, being serious here, if he isn't seeing things from your point of view, then you are not going to get anything by way of a meaningful relationship, are you!

      If he is a short stayer and isn't interested in resolving with / for you what is an 'issue' for you (and it's also one FOR him as you are are supposed to be IN A Relationship - to-gether !), then there is nothing that you can do ~ alone. And the likelihood is that 'nothing will change'.

      If on the other hand he is interested in dealing with this and that his problem is 'premature ejaculation', then you encourage him to ejaculate first, and then go back to the beginning and start again ....with foreplay etc.

      There is a technique where you apply pressure with your thumb and forefinger below the head of the shaft of the penis, and that stops the ejaculation. Another is where you place the base of you hand at the base of his penis and the 'flat of your hand' along the length, and using gentle pressure, you lever downwards (gently) with your fingers. This will lessen the strength of the erection and ease off the desire for ejaculation.

      After that, you go back to The Start and begin again.

      I hope this helps.

  7. QUESTION:
    How can I get my husband to last longer in the bedroom?
    We have been married 7 years and together for 10. Our marriage is wonderful but he c@ms too fast. Ive tried some things and I sometimes feel cheated. I give him oral until he c@ms but then he cant go again. Ive tried holding back on the things I do so he doesnt get overly excited but he c@ms while giving me oral. What can I do to help him gain control.

    • ANSWER:
      Does that also happen when you 4play? I read in a book once that in order for a woman to c@m at the same time a man does, 4play helps. Also, my man does this alot, when he feels like he is c@ming before me, he switches positions or he stops for a sec and gives me more 4play. Also, my man tried Viagra, and he is a young guy in his 20's, and he went on and on and on all night. I was the one tired the next day lol... There are many options, books, etc. I would research online, maybe google it.

      Good Luck!!

  8. QUESTION:
    How can I make my husband "last" longer in the bedroom?
    My husband and I got married alittle over a month ago. We have been together for 2 years. I took his virginity, and Im aware that when guys first start having sex they tend to finish quickly. But here we are a year and a half later and the longest that Im getting is about 10 minutes. Any suggestions on how to make him last longer?

    • ANSWER:
      He just needs some exercises to try. He should try to focus on something nonsexual when he feels a climax building. This is what men do.

      And, everyone is different. Personally I prefer a longer session. Create a mood to make the entire experience last a bit longer. Candles, music, bubble bath, massage oil, etc...

  9. QUESTION:
    What type of carpet is warm, practical & long lasting for the bedroom? Twist or Saxonby (spelling not good!)?
    I am confused looking for a nice medium range carpet that is not too expensive & suitable for the bedroom.
    What underlay should i go for & type of carpet twist or saxonby whats the difference in the long run??

    • ANSWER:
      Choice of twist or saxony is based on personal taste. Saxony has a thick pile and dents from furniture are more prevailent with thicker pile carpets. I would advice a good quality twist for long term durability.

      ++++++Carpet Quality
      Polypropylene is a common textile used in 90% of carpets on the market. Even the higher end quality carpets have about 20% polypropylene in them.

      Polyproylene offers strength to many carpets. You'll find the 80% wool/ 20% polypropylene carpets feel better, and the lower end carpet's have 100% polypropylene in them. There is nothing wrong with this material, but if you want the look and feel of a quality carpet, and you have some money (£20 Sqm +) then go for 80%wool / 20% poly.

      If you wish to spend as little as possible there are many carpets that are cheap that also offer long term benefits (100% polypropylene); stain resistant, wear resistant (B-tron protection) e.t.c. and cost £10 + Sq meter.

      Less than £10 a square metre and your getting a mediocre carpet that has short term wearability (false economy - short term solution). Spend the extra and save replacing the carpet for many years.

      ++++++Underlay
      The superior Underlay on the market (quality is measured in lb's of weight) at 100lb weight (15 Sq metre roll):

      ***Carpet right Charge £119. (Classic Prima)
      ***You can buy it for £70 elsewhere.

      There are other types of underlay that have the same technical specifications as the 100lb weight underlay, the equivalent is the 9mm foam underlay.

      For wood gripper rod (to hold the carpet to the floor)(50 sticks is required for the average 3 bed house)

      ***Carpet Right charge £3.03 a stick
      ***You can buy it for £0.75p elsewhere

      So if you want to save about £100 for the average room, buy your underlay and other accessories from somewhere else

      Tips when buying your carpet
      1)They (carpet right) charge £25 for delivery of your flooring, if you can, get someone to pick it up for you.
      2)They charge more for fitting; 50p more per square metre, another saving; look in the local paper for a cheaper fitter
      3)Most importantly, don't believe anything the salesman tells you, he is brilliant at twisting the truth to either confuse
      you or baffle you with unfactual information
      4)You can buy your underlay or gripper rod cheaper, don't buy it from them, even if they tell you they've done you a deal on
      the whole lot;
      No they hav'nt, they've just given you that sale price on the carpet e.g. 50%, but they've charged you full whack for the
      accessories, ask for a breakdown (or carpet only price), don't tolerate they're rushy attitude, you are the customer you have a right to know,
      they'll try and baffle you, do not accept they're behavior, all they want is that quick commission and to throw you out after
      getting your money.
      4)Don't buy the lower quality underlay under 100lb, or under 8mm (for the foam underlays) you might aswell put paper down, the problem is it can show imperfections
      on the floor base, and it offers next to no insulation or comfort.
      5)If you use a non 'carpet right' fitter Carpet Right most often would have folded the carpet rather than rolled it, so that the carpet is crushed
      and looks terrible when installed, ensure you roll it up when you get it, or specifically ask them to roll it properly and
      not fold it in the first place.Why do they crush/fold the carpet?-- to make you wish you'd chosen a carpet right fitter rather than your own
      hired fitter or they're just lazy (my opinion).
      6)General domestic is suitable for bedrooms only. For hallway, stairs, landings lounge and heavy use areas only accept
      Heavy domestic, otherwise the pile will wear thin (especially on stairs = danger hazard)
      7)Buy underlay, it will save you alot of money (dependant on use) on heating and replacement carpet in the future.

  14. QUESTION:
    Is this why he lasts longer in the bedroom?
    I have had sex with 2 guys. My boyfriend in college was 26, and he lasted the typical Youngbuck 20 minutes. after we broke up, I started seeing my roommate and I had sex with him . He was in his late 30s, and he lasted 2 hours. Did he last longer because he is older and does not get excited like a YoungBuck would?

    • ANSWER:
      let me just say that sex with a guy my age (21) is not the same as with a guy who is 28. the 28 year old is better!!

      I think both get equally excited..just different energy levels...the 30 year old has more experience.

      edit: my experience is the opposite. the older guy last like half an hour while the ones my age like 1 hour...but with the 28 year old is like we only do it once a day...with the ones my age, is like 4 times a day.

      I know the age is not much of a diff as your case, but that was my two-or once- cents.

  16. QUESTION:
    i am trying to find a way to last longer in the bedroom with my partner. Any solutions or products out there?
    She loves the way I do other things (oral, masturbating her, etc.), but when I get inside, I tend to "slip". How can I stop this?

    • ANSWER:
      Premature ejaculation is a condition that effects many men at some point in their lives.

      There are a couple of different solutions to the problem, depending on your situation, what you wish to accomplish, and how much work you want to put into it.

      If you are new to sex, there is one easy solution:

      Generally – when a man starts to have sex, his first few experiences will be short lived and not that satisfying. I am convinced that this is because of all of the excitement and pressure surrounding the first few events – to say nothing of the conditions surrounding those first few experiences (Quick before my dad gets home!) The good news is that this almost always goes away on it’s own with a little bit more experience. Don’t worry too much about it – almost no one has a particularly enjoyable first time – it is almost universally uncomfortable for everyone. This can also happen the first few times a man experiences a new sexual activity – such as oral sex. Conversely, sometimes men have the opposite reaction and cannot maintain an erection during their first few experiences. In any case – don’t worry about it – this will go away on it’s own with a little more practice.

      Now, if you are a man who is suffering with premature ejaculation, and you have had plenty of sex, or if this is something new to you – read on:

      There are three short term solutions:

      First wear a condom, which unless you are in a monogamous relationship with someone you know is healthy and want to have children with you should be doing anyway. As most folks know a condom reduces the amount of sensation you will have and as a result you will be stimulated less, you will take longer to reach orgasm, and will last longer. Everyone hates condoms – but they have their place.

      The second thing you can try – if a condom is not for you is to do what Adam Carolla refers to as “taking a bullet out of the chamber.” Masturbate a few hours before you intend to be with your girlfriend, it takes the pressure off, and makes things last longer. Most guys have tried to masturbate and have two or more orgasms in close succession to one another and have found that the second, or third, or fourth (some guys just keep going) takes longer than the one before it. This is the same trick. If you masturbate before you see your girlfriend, then when you are with your girlfriend you will take longer. Alternatively – have your girlfriend go down on you, until you ejaculate in her mouth / boobs / face / wherever turns you two on, and then you go down on her, or finger her or whatever turns her on until you are ready to go again. The second time will of course – take longer.

      Think about baseball. Or of course anything else that is non-sex related. It might be even more effective to think about something you find particularly revolting – like your grandmother – though that might cause bigger problems down the line – try that at your own risk. I of course have no idea how well this solution works – but the guys I have been with all tell me it works a little... but only a little. And it seems to me that this is sort of the opposite of what you want to do – you want to think about the experience and savor it, I imagine (I know I do) so trying to separate yourself from it might be of limited value.

      Then there are 2 long term solutions.

      A lot of guys train themselves to ejaculate quickly when they masturbate – because they want to avoid getting caught by a mom, or a roommate, or a sibling, or a cop... so the idea is to finish up as quickly from start to finish as possible. So what you want to do is un-do that training, or at least use that same sort of training to your advantage. When you masturbate – set aside some time for it, and take your time. When you get cranking, stop periodically. When you get to the point where you feel like you are about to ejaculate – stop, and let the feeling pass – and then start up again. Keep doing that until you can better control the length of time it takes you to reach that initial feeling. Sure it is a bit of work – but it can be fun work to do. You can also do this with a girl, but let her know what you are trying to do before you get started – otherwise she might be very confused.

      The second solution is one I have had very little success with. It is more or less the same as the above solution, where you masturbate, or engage in intercourse with a girl until just before you reach orgasm, and then you stop and pinch (softly) the head of your penis. And this is supposedly supposed to make the feeling of impending orgasm decrease – so that you can go again right away. In my experience – almost every time I have done this, I have ended up with a face full of semen just after pinching the penis. Which is great with me because I love when a man gives me a facial – but it is not the desired result. Other folks say this works well for them. Good for them. It is worth a try.

      In any case – relax – stress about – or focusing on trying not to ejaculate prematurely – or pressure to perform is only going to make your problem worse. The best advice is to simply slow down, and relax. Enjoy the ride.

  17. QUESTION:
    im 13 and need a long lasting bedroom design!?
    as i said im 13 and moving into a new house what should i do that would last me all the way through highschool?

    • ANSWER:
      Pick classic colors & designs, not trendy ones and pick things that will mature along with you. Look at some bedrooms in design magazines-what do you like about them? Soothing colors such as chocolate and pale blue can be very classic (the swedish classical look); pick fabrics that tie in together well and again are not trendy: stripes, large simple plaid, matelasse, in linen, cotton, velvet. Taking a color palette from nature is always a good way to start.

  18. QUESTION:
    How can i make myself "last longer" (in the bedroom) ?
    Now my problem is, that i feel i ejaculate too quickly. When i masturbate, i can last a very long time, as long as i want to in fact. However, when i receive oral or manual, or any other "treatment", i seem to ejaculate very quickly (under 2 minutes). Any advice? thank you :)

  20. QUESTION:
    Have any of you males had problems before lasting in bed(ejeculating too fast) but can now last alot longer?
    I am a male. I am a virgin. I keep reading stories about women upset about not being satisfied in the bedroom. I feel like I wound't last long. I heard people say more you have sex, the better you get at it. Is this true? Also any of you guys used to last a short time, but can now last longer? Or if you are bad at it, you probably will always last very short? I dunno i just feel insecure right now.

    • ANSWER:
      Don't worry, most people ejaculate quickly their first time because they are excited, anxious, and have hormones racing everywhere. VERY rarely does someone actually last a while, and if they do they probably last too long, or they're lying if they tell you they're "perfect" at it their first time.

      If you are comfortable with the person you are having sex with, then yes over time you will come to relax and enjoy the moment and just let everything happen as it is supposed too. It takes practice to understand physical feelings during sex because they are much different from masturbating. Both of which feel good to us guys!

      It is true alot of women get upset about not being satisfied in the bedroom but very few women actually have an orgasm from strictly penetration. They usually need oral, or their 'area' rubbed before and possibly during sex itself. Their system is much more complicated than us. So when they say they're unsatisfied it's not because of newcomers, virgins, and inexperienced people, it's guys who are in the sex just for their pleasure and not their woman's as well. Make her pleasure your priority and you'll both be plenty satisfied.

      Don't be too worried though. Yes it is nerve-racking waiting for that big moment to finally find it's way into your life, but when it does you'll face it, and it'll be over and you'll eventually have more and become better over time, we all do. Atleast those who care about their partner do. Even pornstars were in your shoes at one point; an inexperienced virgin lol

      I am 19 years old and I've only been with a couple of people, and my first time was fast, only a few minutes (awkward minutes because you've gotta get used to the motions, etc. but they come naturally I promise!), but as I had it a few more times I came to last longer and enjoy myself and please her. I can now last longer, and once you start to have sex you'll get better too!

      I really hope this helps. If you ever need any other help let me know!

  21. QUESTION:
    Tips on lasting longer?
    I was wondering if anyone had any tips for lasting longer in the bedroom. I usually last about 10 mins or so. Occasionally a half hour, depending on how tired I am. Any tips would be appreciated

    • ANSWER:
      10 minutes is actually quite a long time. If you are providing your partner with adequate stimulation before intercourse, then i would think that 10 min is fine. If you do want to go longer, the best way is just through practice, and holding back. just wait until you are nearly there, and then stop, wait a while (maybe just seconds) and then start again. Keep doing this until you are comfortable with the amount of time you can last.

    What is the best and most effective way to last longer.?
    Ok today in sex ed (I am in summer school) one of the male students asked about holding it in or lasting longer in bed. He asked our teacher if there was a tip on lasting longer in the bedroom and our teacher did not respond.

    Do any of oyu know how a guy can last longer without coming.

    • ANSWER:
      Be totally in love with her and don't stop when you are satisfied. Consider her needs and feelings. Be there to please her. Lasting all night doesn't mean you only cum once and it better not mean she only gets one orgasm. Being madly in love with a woman is the way I find it easy to do. If all you're trying to do is score with her, you'll never make it.

  33. QUESTION:
    Long lasting, Rechargeable Bedroom Light?
    I was wondering if its possible to make a rechargeable light that has the strength of or close to that of a plugin lamp. I wanted the charge to last a good while and be able to light up my bedroom. I have no experience making lights so....if you guys could recommend a light type and a rechargeble battery type that'd be great.

    What I am aiming for is a paper lantern type light. I will have 3 of them in my bedroom in 3 out of the 4 corners. It will be cylindrical in shape and above it i was hoping to make a small housing unit for the batteries and what not, while keeping it decorative so it doesn't look bad.
    Well Judging from my current lamp. It isn't too bright but it's bright enough to fill the entire room. So i figure 3 lamps that can keep me from tripping over stuff will be perfect.

    Also, dimmable would be a nice feature, so that'd probably require more powerful lights, but its not a necessity

    Thanks for your help

    • ANSWER:
      Well, LEDs will work, but you have a couple issues: FIrst, how bright do you want the room to be? Bright enough to read? Bright enough so you can just walk through it without busting your knee on a table? Next, you have to decide your cost. What are you willing to pay? There are some very bright LEDs but are still fairly expensive. Next, look at the batteries. AA, C, Ds? Or a rechargable pak like a little notebook battery?

      My thought is this...There are existing lights (I just bought a couple at Harbor Freight for 3.99) that could be fitted with NiMH batteries, so when they needed charges, you could just put them in the wall-wart charger. You could do that for 20 bucks, easy. The decoration on the lamps and the "paper lamp" look, you do on your own.

    How females are able to 'last longer' ?

    • ANSWER:
      Similar ways to men! The same way men will try to think of something unsexual, like the dishes, in order to hold of orgasm, women can think similar thoughts to try and postpone theirs. Men will sometimes masturbate to orgasm prior to having sex so they will be less likely to orgasm too quickly. Women can do the same.

      However, it is rarely a problem for women if they orgasm rapidly because they can have more than one. Men need those sorts of techniques because they often hold themselves responsible for the womans orgasm and therefore need to make efforts to last longer than she does.

      Hope this helps!

    I now seem to have a problem where I seem to feel ashamed or embarressed and can't seem to get it up and keep it up.
    whenever we passionatly make out for some reasons i always get wet and my GF thinks that i blew already. Then in the bedroom i have a problem lasting long and always feel dejected as she asks "did you just go"? Then it's weird becouse i don't have the largest equipment but when I get morning wood, it seems alot larger and more firm than whenever i get one from somthing she provokes.

    it's starting to become less of an enjoyable experience and I want her to feel good and I hope there is somthing i can do that won't require me taking medication.
    so basically
    I don't have the largest equipment
    I need to last longer
    stop getting wet before sex
    keep it hard longer

      "equipment" size never matters its just something whores make fun of when they've ran out of other things cuz they knwo it cuts deep...

      If you materbate about 4 hours befor having sex or serious make outs it should make you last longer and would stop you gettting wet befor sex.

      If you want to try materbating for long periods of time pick a slow and conferatoble speed and try to keep going for about 20 mins (or more) before ejaulation. then next time your about ot have sex RELAX let it all go dont wory bout a thing just let all mental stresses go away like nothing matters anymore...

Lasting Longer Bed Tricks

Does your wife or girlfriend feel disappointed with the "quick finish" that she gets every time you both make out? Worse still, is your lack of stamina in bed keeping you away from sex? If you are, take comfort that you are not alone. In fact, premature ejaculation is one deep-seated fear that almost half of the male population regularly suffers from. Yet in almost all cases, PE can be permanently fixed - even without the need for medical intervention or the use of marketing gimmicks such as desensitizing sprays and creams.

Mental Associations Feature More Prominently In PE Than Any Other Sexual Dysfunctions

Simply put - you are what you THINK! Many men think themselves into early ejaculation. They become nervous and anxious whenever sex is around the corner. They wonder if they can ever last long enough to please their partners. This form of nervous energy eats into their psyche and inevitably affects their ejaculatory reflexes.

Our human body is biologically wired to release pent up tensions. The more anxious or stressed you are, the quicker your body will use ejaculation as an outlet for release of the stress that is building up within you.

Use Positive Visualization For Sensational Stamina In The Sack!

Instead of fearing you will climax early, it helps to play out positive images in your mind to help you last longer in bed. Think of yourself as a phenomenal lover who can satisfy your woman without fail each time. Go into specifics. Think of what you can do to pleasure her and bring her to an orgasm without using your genitals. Let these images play out in your mind over and over again.

Allow this form of positive visualization to seep through your subconsciousness and you will soon feel your nervous energy ebbing away. Double this up with the appropriate breathing techniques and you will soothe your nerves and calm your mind before and during sex.

The human mind is an extremely powerful weapon to guard against premature ejaculation. PE is a treatable sexual dysfunction, and in almost all cases, the right treatment for longer lasting sex begins in the mind - not pills, creams, drugs or lotions of any kind!

  6. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know some tricks to help my husband last longer in bed?
    ???

    • ANSWER:
      For me, having an orgasm early on and then f**king for a second time 15 or so minutes later works very well. The SSRI route has worked quite well, too. But during penetration I must get myself all excited, and trying to think of other things like grandma pole dancing just doesn't work. Agreed that delay sprays or creams or condoms with those inside the condom work well, but I find the loss of feeling unpleasant. There are also several physical exercises that he can try - for instance, progressive controlled masturbation to learn how to recognize the signals of when to slow down or stop, and to eventually learn to be able to handle stimulation with having a quick orgasm can help.

  11. QUESTION:
    Ways to last longer in bed?
    Could use some tricks to last even longer in bed.

    • ANSWER:
      Use plenty of foreplay. If u do this right u can get your gf to orgasm several times just from foreplay.

      Then another thing is to go twice. Usually u can climax fairly quick the first time, so just go ahead and let it go. Then do some foreplay for a while until u get aroused again, then go for a second shot. The second time will take longer and she will like that a lot.

  15. QUESTION:
    Need Help Lasting Longer in Bed?
    Ok so this kinda sucks to ask but i need some help. Girlfriend and I just started having sex a month or so ago, we're separate and at college. I'm 18, she was my first time. But I'm not lasting as long as I want to when we are doing it. Lasts like a minute and then well.....yea. So my question, it it just an experience thing? Will I be getting better with experience or will I be stuck like this my entire life? Is there anything I can do to help myself out? I know the whole "jerk it before you do it" trick and I have not tried it. So help me out here guys. I know I can't be the only one with this question, and I'm not the only one to go through this. So i need some advice.

    • ANSWER:
      hi Steven
      Don't be embarrassed.

      Don't be ashamed.

      Don't put off the sensual act of making love to your partner, just because of a simple problem of premature ejaculation.

      Over 80% of men can relate to this problem but it is easy to overcome this issue.

      I have written ten easy tips for you below, to implement right now and be extending your penetrative love making right from the next time you have sex.

      There are many claimed potions, tablets, sprays and cures for how to last longer in bed, and how to have sex longer. None of them work. Some cause skin irritation, some cause so much numbness to the penis that you can't even feel aroused, some potions have off-putting smells and others just simply don't work.

      Premature ejaculation is both a psychological and physiological problem which are inextricably linked. However by following the tips below, you will see an increase in performance and see that you can last longer in bed almost immediatly.

      Without any more waffling, my top 10 tips are as follows;

      1) Learn to stop! Don't go at it like a bull in a china shop. If you feel yourself getting close to the point of no return STOP. Withdraw your penis and change what you were doing.

      2) Breathing. Control your breathing through your nose with deep breaths. This will slow your whole excitement and put you back in control.

      3) Wear a condom. A cheap and easy (and not at all suspicious) way to reduce sensitivity to your penis (particilarly the tip (glans)), thus helping you to last longer.

      4) Stimulate your partner. Forget about yourself. Almost as much pleasure (without the ejaculation) can be gained for both partners, if you concentrate on pleasuring your lover. Step back from your own penetration and work your magic with your hand or mouth to bring your partner to climax, or almost climax. You can then carry on after your partner is satisfied or join in just as they are about to climax.
      5) Circular motions. Stop overstimulating your penis head and alter your penetration technique to a circular motion so that all your penis (hence less of the head) gets stimulated.

      6) Location location location. Or rather position. Your partner on top reduces your movement and excitement (unlike you being on top doing all the work). This can greatly help the control you have and stimulation you receive.

      7) Diversionary tactics! At least for your mind anyway. No, don't think of your mother naked. Instead hold the tip of your tongue on the roof of your mouth. This is a simple trick, effective and unknown to your lover.

      8) Masturbate first. If you have been getting excited all night with your partner then the build up of anticipation is too much and will almost certainly result in premature ejaculation. Offset this by popping to the toilet and masturbating 10 minutes before you will be making your move for real.

      9) Stay in control. This may encompass some other aspects of these 10 tips but if you have the mindset of being in control, instead of getting over excited, then you can withdraw at any point, cchange position, give oral stimulation and generally decide the outcome of the experience.

      10) The 'behind the balls' muscle. Forget it's scientific name. Hold this muscle or press it with your hand when you feel the urge to come. A little practise with this technique will be an immediate relief.

      With these in place you will be well on your way to making a more sensual lover, a more relaxed lover, and one who is able to last longer in bed and have sex for longer until you decide your partner is sexually satisfied (well, almost!) and you are ready to join in that pleasurable sensation too.

    • ANSWER:
      Personally as a man, Its all about the breathing.

      Make sure he doesn't hold his breath; taking nice deep breaths, like you're doing yoga, definitely helps me last forever.

      Also, you could buy a cock-ring to help last longer. I have one that is silicone and not too tight. Though you shouldn't use it all the time, constant use could cause problems.

  20. QUESTION:
    How to get my husband to last longer in bed?
    We're pretty young and have been married for two years now. I know that condoms are an obvious enhancement but they don't really make a difference for us and he doesn't prefer them. We're both pretty ambitious about sex but nowadays it's harder for him to last long enough for me to be fully satisfied. I tend to get pretty vocal and our style is pretty intimate, and I often let him put it in my ass. He has always only lasted 3-10 minutes but used to be able to go for hours with me because he could have multiple orgasms, and now he's usually too sensitive after one, so we just try and make him last as long as possible the first time. Sometimes he'll just go slower for a bit when he's close, but as soon as I get anywhere near having an orgasm he loses it. Any methods, tricks or inexpensive remedies to recommend?

    • ANSWER:
      Make him give you oral sex until you have an orgasm and then have sex, so that at least you will be satisfied.

  21. QUESTION:

    • ANSWER:
      You can try the start and stop technique:works like this:as soon as you feel you are about to come :stop moving and cool down:then restart and go on:you can do this a very long time and also do some foreplay in between
      Success:Colors

  22. QUESTION:
    My Boyfriend has a little problem in bed... Help!?
    My boyfriend and I have been going out for almost 7 months now. And I know he is the love of my life. But we do have one major problem, and that’s in bed. He is 6 inches, and feels like he is small. And he comes early. Now to me his penis is perfect but he is extremely self-conches about this. His confidence has been really low. So low he won’t even dress in front of me anymore because of his “little” penis. To me is perfect and that it does not matter what other people think about it because I am going to be the only one to see it. And I love him, all of him, penis included. But now to my question, what can I do, or what can he do to make him last longer in bed. He already told me he refuses to do surgery. But I feel that there might be some at home tricks that we or he can do to maybe help him last a bit longer. Because I know if he could he would feel a lot better about himself, and I just want him happy. So do you have any ideas? A website? Or anything that might be able to help us. Thanks! -Anna

  27. QUESTION:
    HELP! I can't last long in bed ANYMORE!?
    Okay, the keyword here is ANYMORE.

    I am going to give ALL the details:

    We both are 19... and in college, stressful, and i am an assistant manager at certain retail place...
    I do the Kegel exercises when im driving to school mondays, wed, and fridays, it is like a 30 min drive, and i do them randomly during all the other days, i mean, i think im doing them right, you're supposed to do a "squeeze" in the butt area, right?

    So I have been dating my girlfriend for a year and a half.

    She lost her virginity to me; however she was not my first, she is my 4th.

    Anyways, like when we first did it, it had been a while for me, it had been like almost a year or so... i was expecting, o man, this is going to be like 30 seconds, well, it was almost 2 hours.

    And yes, condom was used. Just regular good-ol rubber.

    Then we started doing it more, like every weekend or so, and i usually lasted 1 - 2 hours, that was it.

    Then we started using the thinner condoms and it stayed around 45 minutes to 2 hours, so no much change.

    Then we used the Trojan Eccstasy or something like that, and it was about 30 minutes to 1 hour and a half.

    Then we started using no condom (yes she is on the pill and i pull out, i know its risky... what ever) and stayed just the same 30 minutes, and a few times close to 1:45.

    Then idk what happened but there was this one time i put it in and literally 10 seconds... then i put a condom on (residue still inside, we are not that dumb, lol) and agian, 10 seconds....

    That went away and i only lasted about 5 - 15 minutes... she tells me she doesnt mind at all, cuz longer makes her get sore, she does have an allergy to lube (even the sensitive kind) and to latex so yeah. We have even tried it with regular condoms, like the ones we first used and i could not last longer than 5 to 10 minutes!!!! :(

    Now, she kinda took a vow of celibacy, not like a NEVER SEX, but like she doesnt want to have sex for a while, well, we still do a lil, so its not like a legit vow of celibacy, but when we did, these past times i lasted under a minute. And she just told me its going to be a while before we do it again. And i am just like OMG THIS SUCKS because she wouldnt go for a "second round" when we did it.

    So how can i last long AGAIN....cuz i hate these 10 second quickies...she says she doesnt mind them, like she told me the nice and slow love making went flying out of the window, she likes it rough now, idk why... but i tell her that if she liked the 10 seconds she says yeah, not to worry about it, its been a while since we've done it, etc...

    P.S. She think that having sex twice a month makes our relationship just about sex, how can i prove her wrong? I mean, like doest the average couple do it like 4 times a week? lol I mean, its not like we have sex every time we see each other, she says: "im just not a horny virgin anymore" so idk how to take that...

    But that is not the point, i just want to know, how can i last long again so i can really enjoy it. I've tried tricking my body by masturbating like RIGHT before having sex, but she just feels so darn good i couldnt last longer than 20 seconds the last 3 times we've done it.
    DONT BE LAZY, I just timed myself reading it and it took me 1 minute and 33 seconds!

    Okay, basics, used to last 2 hours, not only SECONDS.

    Should i go to a doctor?

    What kind?

    K thx.

    now only seconds.

    What kind of Doctor?

    • ANSWER:
      DUDE! I feel fo you man. Really I do. I'm in a similar situation. And your questions though kinda out of control are alot, but here's my attempt:

      Since the original condoms you lasted longer maybe there a connection there. I would first say that you should go back to that style and brand. Also when you do the kegels its not so much of a butt muscle as it is your pi$$ stopper muscle. So start practicing that alot. Later on after you've mastered that muscles distinction you should try jacking and stopping method by your self. This could build up your tolerance. And if you have sex again possibly make you last longer. Its worked for me in the past with other girls.

      Talk to your girlfriend and see why now all the with holding and remind her that you don't see it the same way.

    • ANSWER:
      Honestly, that's a hard question for me... I guess it depends on your skills and your foreplay. Quickies are fun, but only if your in a public place or you don't have much time...

  34. QUESTION:
    How to encourage preschoolers (3 & 5) to sleep longer?
    I have two children. One is three and one is 5 years old. I have always been a proponent of enough hours of sleep for them. My oldest was the last of his friends to drop a nap and that was just because preschool got out at 2:30 and it didn't work any longer. They go to bed at about 8:00 but sometimes can take a bit to fall asleep. Not positive what time they actually do as I am not in there although it is quiet after we leave their rooms.

    Anyway, the oldest wakes up about 7:15 and the other 7:30ish. I try to to get them to sleep longer but can't seem to make it work. Their rooms are dark, sound machines are on, digital clocks so they know not to get up before a specified time... but then within 30 to 90 minutes of coming out of his room my oldest will comment on being tired. He has even started napping again in the afternoon when he gets home without my making him! He has been doing this for about 2 months and I think his behavior is showing especially the second half of the day. He needs to sleep more over night but how do I get him to do that?

    My youngest wakes up happy and wonderful but then about 2 hours later she also complains about being tired. She then wants to take 3+ hours naps in the afternoon. If I cut her naps short it does not make her sleep longer at night! I have tried that.

    Earlier bedtimes only seem to make them lay there longer.... anyone have tricks of the trade to encourage them not to hop out of bed the first time their little eyes open? I mean, I wake up at 5:00 feeling ready sometimes but logically know it is too early so I can make myself go back to sleep. They don't do that!

    Thanks, I had hoped more ppl would answer this post. I loved your ideas!

    • ANSWER:
      Wow, those are some good tricks. Baby food fruit is also good as a substitute for oil in baking cakes and such, and the oatmeal is good to use as a thickener in soups or gravy.

      A square of toilet paper is perfectly kid sized for blowing/wiping noses, and much cheaper.

      A storage box full of diapers, wipes, changing pad and grocery sacks in the most used rooms of the house saves a lot of steps, especially if you have stairs.

      I also tried to sort as much as I could in the playroom, and put it in storage boxes with a representative picture so my young children knew what was in each box and could put things away easier. What I didn't know was they have difficulty opening the box lids, so I can limit how much they get out at one time, making clean up that much easier!

      I took wire shelves that have adjustable shelves and made the bottom shelf very high, then took bungee cords and attached them about every six inches so that they made vertical "bars" between the shelves. This is our stuffed animal zoo, and it is very easy to get animals out of and put them back.

      Placing all the plastic children's cups and plates in a drawer that they can access, as well as a few "anytime" healthy snacks, means they can make their own breakfast or snack. Just be prepared for a little mess!

      Instead of using paper towels, I bought a package of microfiber shop towels from SAMS fairly cheaply. I put them in a storage box and they are great for cleaning up spills, dusting, or spot mopping. When I have a load, I just throw them in the washing machine.

      When the uneaten fruit begins to spoil, I throw it in the freezer and then can use it to make homemade slushies or popscicles.

      Even some of the most stubborn stains come out with patience. I wet the garment, then scrub in color safe bleach using a toothbrush, then let it sit for a day or so, making sure to wash it before it mildews or dries out. It may take two or three times, but most stains give way under this treatment, saving a fortune in clothing!

      Thanks for your suggestions!

I took the weekend off of adderall and now my third week i have practically no bad side effects thank god! meanwhile getting all the benefits. so at this point im thinking adderall really is great maybe we just got off on the wrong foot, but ovecourse there has to be something bad, now im having sleeping problems, falling asleep is no problem its staying asleep. last night i went to bed at 12 it didnt take long at all to fall asleep but i woke up around 230, after that i woke up every 30 minuetes to an hour, every time i woke up my head would feel like it was squeezed under pressure kind of like when your on a plane id be tossing and turning and there would be 500 thoughts bouncing around my head all at once, often ill have a song playing in my head OVER AND OVER, at one point i heard a clock ticking it felt so loud and i couldnt block it out, it was driving me crazy and although it didnt last long i relised today i dont even have a clock! the first few times i woke up weren't that bad i fell back asleep pretty quickly but as the night went on it took longer to fall back asleep and it got worse and worse, although i wanted to sleep and knew i should my body and mind were awake and rested. when i tried to sleep my brain would feel overwhelmed with all sorts of random jumbled thoughts all at once and that is a horrible feeling especailly when a pattern like a line of a song just keep playing in your brain over and over and over idk if anyone has had this but its the worst! but when i gave in and just layed there not trying to sleep i didnt feel as bad (dont get me wrong it wasnt fun) the final time i woke up was 545 and i layed in bed trying to sleep until 645 when i finally gave up and just got ready for school, i usually wake up later and then lay in bed a long time slowwyy waking up, this morning was obviously different, when i got out of bed at 645 i was wide awake immediatly and i went through my day totally normal, which was surprising, but im just waiting for this no sleep to catch up, i havnt truely felt tired since last weekend before my third week began
    i wouldnt even mind all this so much except when i wake up in the night my brain feels so overwhelmed and restless its like I want to sleep but my brain wont SHUT UP and i cant control it, it drives me crazy!
    its only been a few nights but its getting worse last night although i technically slept none of it felt like sleep because it wasnt for more than an hour at a time and i was never in a "deep" sleep.

    i know this is almost deffinatly from the adderall, but i dont want to stop taking it even though my restless brain is extreemly annoying at night its not effecting me at all durring the day the lack of sleep hasnt taken a toll on my brain or body(yet atleast) i feel great all day.

    ..if you have anything to share that would be great and it would be cool to know whats really going on in my body thats doing this BUT my real question it how to stay asleep?

    i wish falling asleep was the problem because i have lots of solutions for that warm milk, blazing (sorry mom lol), and some tricks to help relax. but im falling alseep like a normal person..actually staying asleep is alot harder of a problem to sovle because it’s hard to find something that lasts ALL NIGHT. a few people told me to blaze before i go to bed but i feel like it would work for the first few hours of the night but then ware off and ill be back to waking up, am i wrong??

    Also since adderall I eat a lot less I cant help it I have no appetite and when I do eat Im full after 2 bites my only concern with that is although before adderall i would have at least 2 cups of coffee a day usually more, and I know my bodies used to it and deffinatly not sensitive to the caffeine. Maybe now that my stomachs practially empty it cant absorb the caffeine the same? (Im only having 1-2 cups now and LOTS of water)
    but whats different about me now as apposed to the past 2 weeks that im getting these sleeping issues sudenly!?!?

    someone please answer this ASAP, its pathetic but im afraid to "go to sleep" tonight, maybe ill go back to normal, maybe ill have a repeat of last night, maybe tonight will be even worse (i dont even want to think about that)

    If anyone has a way to STAY ASLEEP ALL NIGHT please share!

    please don't judge me for adderall, smoking, eating habits, etc. i just want the well needed benefits of the medication wile still living a normal life and im willing to try anything, except that though ill try smoking and sleeping pills/medication i dont want those to be my perminent solution, i dont want to do either regularly.

    Thank you so much to anyone who answers this! I appreciate it.

    • ANSWER:
      You should see your doctor. Adderall is not the drug for you. There are many other choices, or maybe even an adjusted dose. You should not try to take anything for sleep until you have your medication changed. You should not be feeling that way when awake either. If you have ADD (which I am assuming since you didn't mention it) you should be calmed by your medication, not hyped up. Maybe you don't have ADD at all.... My son has it and takes Concerta. If he does not take it, he is completely hyper and difficult to be around. Once he takes it, he can calm down and focus. This does not sound like what is happening for you. You should see your doctor right away.

  39. QUESTION:
    will my child eventually wear himself out and stay in bed?
    Sorry ya'll I've been asking the same questions over and over. We're trying to get our 20 month old to sleep in his toddler bed and stay there all night. He always winds up in our room with his little blanket and pillow. I tried the Supernanny trick last night..back and forth 40 million times laying him down but he always gets right back up and screams at the baby gate/door. After 20 mins I gave up, b/c he was choking and crying so bad. I feel so mean! Will he ever just get in his bed and STAY THERE? How long do I do this method? It doesn't seem to be working.

    • ANSWER:
      It's going to be a struggle but if you give up it's going to be a struggle that he wins.

      Stick with it. This is one of the few Supernanny methods that I agree with. Don't let a 20 month old wear you out. The point is to wear him out so he gives up and falls asleep in his own bed.

      "He always winds up in our room"

      Keep your bedroom door shut. He needs to see that it's off limits and not an option. Stay in another part of the house while you're taking him back to his room, then you can go to bed after he does.

      "It doesn't seem to be working."

      That's because you only stuck with it for 20 minutes.

      It's not mean to let him cry. He's just frustrated because he can't have what he wants.

  40. QUESTION:
    Ladies.. A little help please?
    Many women say that they want a guy thats confident etc.. but they also say "Good in bed"

    So, what would you want from a guy in bed?? how long should it last for you, what tricks do you have for a guy to really satisfy his girl.. im not the guy who's only in it for himself, i want to make it as awesome as possible for her :)

    • ANSWER:
      Girls love it when she can pull on your dick!
      and your hand cuffed.
      Being imprisoned in a cage and wearing a dress is always a PLus!
      when we blow we like to bite.
      when we are eaten bite and lick our thighs and arm pits.
      this should last a goooood hour. if you can't last that long YOU SUCK!

  41. QUESTION:
    My kitten cries a lot at night. What are good ways to stop him from crying?
    He is 4 months old. I have heard that putting him on the bed with us, it will stop him from crying, but there is no space on the bed already and I'm afraid I migh squeesh him. Does the "wrap an old shirt around a ticking clock" trick really work?

    Last night, we ignored the crying but it took a long time and he would cry again after a couple of hours. Is leaving him in a room by himself bad? Doesn't he have to get used to it?

    • ANSWER:
      I have a five month old who cries if he gets locked out. We leave the bedroom door open and he comes and goes as he pleases. He sometimes sleeps with us, sometimes in his basket, and sometimes disappears for the whole night. Your kitten probably just needs the reassurance that you are home, and there to comfort him when he needs it. If there is no room on the bed, or if you just don't want him sleeping with you, try the basket by the bed. The clock does help sometimes. He might still try to climb into bed with you, but he'll get used to sleeping by himself as he gets older. Just don't lock him away at night.

      You might want to try getting a second kitten, however, since you didn't do that to begin with, I would assume that that is not a good solution for you. Don't do it unless you are willing to com mitt to the second one as much as to the first one.

    they love hide n go seek in the dark so i will play a big game of that , but that doens't last long and
    does nayone have any tricks to help get the kids to bed easier , and on time?

    • ANSWER:
      try differnt types or painting
      maybe like a collage?
      and you know where you fold a paper into half and put water colour on one side and fold it and then open it and it looks like a butterfly.
      you can also get like crayons and just colour the whole page and then over it all up with black and then get a sharp pointy thing and draw with it.
      it'll scrape the balck crayon and the bright nice colours from underneath will show.
      then theres clay make differnt things with it..
      oh and you can get some dishwashing liquid and put come paint in it and blow it on a paper the bubbles will form a nice shap on it.
      thats always really nice.
      then you can make some stamp with some potatoes of course you will have to make it for them since there too yong to use knifes.
      and once thats done apply paint on it and go ahead a stamp!
      you can also get some colourful paper and fold them and cut them here and there and open it up and then you;ll see some pretty shapes.
      you can also try origarmi.
      or with milk boxes you can make cars you know just put some wheels with a tooth pick and cut out some windows and put a little picute of a man in it and race away..

      i hope i gave you some new ideas..
      good luck then!!

    how can i control my hunger for older woman..?
    im a 20 year old guy living in miami florida and its soo hard for me not to be looking out for older woman.. basically cougars.. its like i lust for them .. the older woman i have been with have been amazing becuz they seem to be more experienced in sex and let me enjoy on my tongue tricks on their body ; )) .. but neways.. how do i settle down cuz sumtimes i want sum1 my age but then get dissapointed in bed.. girls my age dont last long i guess and arent as romantic or sexual about things as me.. not enuff experience as older woman.. what should i do ?

    • ANSWER:
      Hmmm....guess there is still hope for old geezers like me!!! You made my day.

      Okay---you asked the question so I'll answer it. What should you do b/c you like the sex better with older women than with younger women? Easy answer. Go into relationships with something other than sex on your mind and as the only thing you want out of it. Yeah, you might have to take some time to get to know women...find things to talk about, what you have in common, etc. The bonus??? Whether she's young or old that "connection" and caring for another person will make the sex even better than what your mind can comprehend at this point.

      Have fun, Playa!

  44. QUESTION:
    And so potty training has begun! Any tips and tricks for along the way for a late talker?
    We started potty training my 2 1/2 yr old son today. Well actually my mom did lol. He stayed at her house last night and she brought him home saying he peed in the pot 3 times! I almost died because I can never get him to pee in the pot! So its full speed ahead and no looking back now! He did really well today I asked him multiple times if he had to pee sometimes he would say no sometimes he would run to the pot. He did really well peeing a total of 7 times in the pot! With close to as many accidents which I know will happen and its only the first day. One time he was actually peeing and finished I tried to get him down he shook his head no and peed some more! I'm excited we made a huge deal over it obviously and he would get really excited to go because every time I would freak out jump up and down clap run through the house screaming and saying yay and he was right behind me doing the same thing lol so he really loved it! I put a diaper on him for bed time but I am worried this will confuse him? Any tips tricks advice ect? I know that it varys from kid to kid but how long could it be until he is full trained? Also he is about a yr behind in speech so I'm not sure how he is going to go about telling me he has to go? Any other late talkers potty training

  45. QUESTION:
    Prolonging sex and delaying orgasm?
    I have had an issue for some time where I can't seem to last a very long time in bed. My GF seems satisfied but would like it to go longer. I've tried to do kegal exercises and that got me nowhere. Is there anything I can take or do that will keep me from orgasming so fast and make me last a lot longer. I heard there is something over the counter I can take that is not for that but will do the trick but don't know what it is. Any help would be great

    • ANSWER:
      Hi..

      My boyfriend had such a problem too(during intercourse) when we first started out and it is perfectly normal i guess.

      Here is one exercise that my bf had tried during masturbation and it helps the situation so much when he is doing it with me! (not overnight, but gradually)

      Stop during masturbation
      Begin masturbating as normal. As you near orgasm, stop masturbating. Don't go over the edge. Let your tension unwind. When you have relaxed enough, masturbate again until you feel the onset of orgasm, then stop. Repeat this for as long as you like. This is the simplest way to keep sex going. First you must learn to recognize pre-orgasm, and to stop immediately. Otherwise sex is over. Without the pre-orgasm, male orgasm control falls apart. Practice first on your own. You will learn quicker this way. Your concentration will not be broken by external diversions. Once you have practiced stopping at pre-orgasm on your own, try it during sex.

      There are some other breathing techniques that can help in calming your excitement and get going with your performance.

      And remember, always divert your concentration elsewhere such as to finger her, or continue with your foreplay etc.

      I have compile more infos on erection and sexual endurance for man on my website. Is totally free.. Should you need more information, do claim your free guide and be that hero tonight! =)

  46. QUESTION:
    Problem sleeping, thoughts keeping me awake?
    Anyone have any tricks to help me sleep? Everytime I go to bed, a buch of "energetic" thoughts come in my mind... nothing negative or sexual or whatever... just lots of thoughts that kinda put my body in a awake-and-ready state...

    I tried meditation but it doesnt seem to work well, reading does help a bit but the effect doesnt last long enouth and I don't want to start taking sleeping pills...

    • ANSWER:
      About an hour before you go to bed, start slowing down your body. Try keeping a minimal amount of lights on. That gets me tired. Or if you like baths, you could try taking a warm bath right before you go into bed. I have tried Simply Sleep sleeping pills and they just make it easier to fall asleep. It you just use them once in a while you won't have to rely on them. Also, make sure your not drinking caffeine close to the time your going to sleep. Hope this helps.

  47. QUESTION:
    Extreme anxiety or more? possibly bi-polar?
    this is crazy long! woul be thankful if anyone bothers to read it all :)

    i have always had issues with severe anxiety and have been diagnosed with agoraphobia and panic attacks, but i am very nervous of going for any in depth psychiatric assessment (been referred but am putting it off)...
    I have long lasting bouts of depression (but i refuse to admit this to anyone out of my anxieties) i may come out of these periods really optimistic, with many ideas on things i would like to accomplish and do etc... this might be followed by spending time with people (the big problem - i will start of excited, sometimes suprisingly confident for me, optimistic, and then things all go downhill, i will start to look at whatever i am doing as some sort of game mission etc sparked of by what someone says... or how someone looks at me, becoming totally paranoid, and begin to act according to however i think the game should be played? hard to explain, the thing is at the time i think i am totally aware and in control and rational (most of the time), in hindsight i think what the fuck, i must be going mad) this has recently on a number of occasions gotten worse... i actually blacked out one night and apparently switched at my friend accusing her of only pretending to be my friend so she could later humiliate me, i was really nasty apparently, she left crying while another friend who decided to "look after me" - i accused of trying to steal everything from me and angrily started to scream at her to take everything, then calling my mother to tell her what they were trying to do to me, also claiming that when i was younger i am pretty sure that a boy i knew was being molested when i was 7 (something that is likely true but have not thought of at all?? until my mother recited it back to me the next day) my second friend laughed the incident off and said "go to therapy", the first when i finally got the courage to get hold of her and apologise, didnt want to talk to me for a while she was so surprised and hurt by my actions and that completely irks me because i had no recollection of them.
    . I dont drink very often my mother and father both alcoholics (mother clean and sober) i just get paraoid at the idea of losing control if i drink. etc people often assume i am drunk when in large groups of people drinking even when i am not.. (i get spacey and dissasociate sp? from the situations) ... this makes me more paranoid.. another bad episode i have had:
    i misplaced my ciggerrettes, was sure i had put them down on a table, when i couldnt find them i was adament that a friends boyfriend was playing tricks on me, to make me think i was going mad, followed by the same thing happening with my phone only for the phone to reeappear, before i went back to find the phone i spazzed out at the boyfriend and his friends all accusingly and like a crazy woman, finding the phone i felt so totally paranoid and confused, i was sure it was all some kind of test i was failing? i ran up to two people i dont know and hugged them, thinking that might help me win (no logic whatsoever, im not a hugging person)... i had to get out of there my friend was worried but i told her i was fine, then heard a snide remark from her boyfriend, only when i turned around he wasn't there. I then had a panic attack on the way home and thought i would pass out and die followed by spending approximately three days in bed without food running to the bathroom when needed feeling terrified and insane, people were watching me, could here me thinking, sometimes equalling to me talking ou loud as if to sound out my thoughts? waiting for something to happen to me, followed by guilt when realizing how irrational i had been and falling back into a depression for god knows how long and cycle repeats... just a couple of examples... does this sound like extreme agoraphobia/ anxieties with possibly psychotic episodes?
    if i were to go to a psychiatrist etc and was diagnosed with something.. how would this affect my wanting to pursue a career in psychology? i know that emotional stability is an important trait etc

    • ANSWER:
      Well I took the time to read. You do have alot of anxiety issues that are not making your day to day life easy. You seem to be aware of them so that's a plus. I really think that you should see a psyciatrist. You should not worry that they will make things worse, if anything they are there to help you. You may not think that you are helpable but you are. You've been waiting for a boost for a long time and this is your chance. Don't be afraid. Go and seek help, the worse that can happen is nothing, which means you'd be feeling the same as now. You have NOTHING to loose by trying to see someone. You should really try and go, you know you need help. You may need someone to push you to go but please do. Help yourself, your life is not over and you have so much to offer. Only you and you, yourself can make the decision to go and get better. You live once, enjoy it, make it count. Don't be sad, or have anxieties if it can be helped. Life is full of great things, you need to allow yourself to be part of this. Make the changes that you need to make to get you were you want to be! I hope this helps you, you need courage and strenght to get help. Ask those you trust most to help you, they will. All your family wants is for you to be happy and anxiety free! You can do it! Believe in yourself and you can achieve anything!

    Does anyone know any special tricks or techniques to get to sleep? (repost)?
    i keep getting random thoughts racing thought my head and it keeps me from sleeping cos they just won't stop. i've had this for as long as i can remember. well i had this one technique where i'd make my room as dark as possible (or even throw the blankets over my head), close my eyes and think the word black to myself to drown out all other thoughts and i would fall asleep with 15 minutes. now when i try this trick it doesn't work as well anymore (maybe i'm used to it) so i was wondering if there were any other techniques out there that i could try so i'm not lying in bed for hours at a time with all these thoughts racing through my imagination

    i read every night in bed and eve when i'm so tired i can't keep my eyes open and i turn out the light to sleep the thoughts come racing and it wakes me up all over again. i listen to music all night long cos i can't sleep without it as i hate the silence.

    i can't imagine fantasies as someone else posted last time cause they tend to just stay there and keep going once they've started. part of the whole racing thoughts thing

    • ANSWER:
      Make a bed time routine that involves relaxing activities. Try a sound machine, something without words. Sometimes I count, I just count until I fall asleep. Try to sleep for 15 min., if u can't get up for about 10-15 mins then try again. I also try to count my breaths. I inhale for 5 seconds and exhale for 7 seconds, keeping count in my mind. Hope that helps.

Lasting Longer Bed Pill

The herbs enclosed will work for both men and women and they will increase your sex drive, improve sexual performance and also give you more satisfying orgasms - Let's take a look at how they work...

If you want to improve libido and performance, you need nitric oxide and it's a fact that a man will never get an erection, unless he produces high levels of this sex chemical and women also need to secrete high levels - so what does it do?

It allows more blood to enter the sex organs by dilating and widening the blood vessels which lead into the sex organs allowing them to fill with blood and harden. Nitric oxide declines with age but the good news is the herbs - Ginseng, Cnidium and Horny Goat Weed, will boost levels quickly and naturally.
For a high libido and sexual stamina, both men and women need testosterone and if it's lacking libido and energy levels fall and many other health problems can develop. The good news is that you can give levels a boost by taking the ancient Chinese herbal remedies Tongkat Ali and Tribulus. These herbs are the best natural testosterone boosters and will increase energy, libido and sexual staying power quickly.

To enjoy sex, the mind must be free of worry and other negative inputs such as stress and to give you mind a lift and fight negative inputs such as stress, you can take Ginkgo Biloba and Maca which act as mind tonics and energy boosters; both herbs are known to lift libido and give users more intense and pleasurable orgasms.

Get them ALL in the Best Libido Pills

You can get them all in the best men's and women's natural libido pills, to give your sex life a boost and also improve your overall level of wellness at the same time.

      Yeah I used it...and it works pretty damn well. The only problem is that you don't feel anything, and I mean ANYTHING! You'll bang like a porn star, but you won't enjoy it, other than for your ego. Also it usually numbs your woman down there too, so what's the point?

    I want to know if anyone has used spray or pills for lasting longer in bed or has experienced any side effects?

    • ANSWER:
      I have a friend who has used some "Stud 100" which desensitizes the penis a bit just don't let her go down on you or she might end up in the hospital like my friends chick. The same guy has also used some "Rize 2" or something which he said made him a bit bigger and it did give him more staying power. LOL he said it looked like a swollen sausage and his girl even noticed it she asked him if he took something to last longer and make it bigger. He didn't experience any side effects but I'm sure it is possible.

    • ANSWER:
      Think about sports or Rosie O'Donnell.

      Seriously, it's a psychological issue. You're much too focused on the sexual act and your own sexual pleasures. Concentrate on your partner's pleasures and how you're making her/him feel. But again, you can seriously think of anything besides the sex and you'll noticed the difference. Thus, this proves the psychological issue and can be controlled with practice.

  12. QUESTION:
    Is There a Pill to Help Men Last Longer in Bed?
    Is there a SAFE pill to desensitize men and help them last longer during intercorse? Are there mental methods that he can use to control the time of ejaculation? Does age play a factor? Does his physique make any difference? Should a man in his 20's have no control?
    OK, Viagra is for men who cant keep it up right??? This is not the problem...the issue is PROLONGING intercorse.

    • ANSWER:
      There are a lot of pills that claim to make a man better. ED pills help somewhat, but they basically only ensure sex happens, not how long it will last. Condoms are very good at desensitizing.

      There are mental techniques a man can use PRIOR to ejaculation to last longer. But once the barn doors have opened, the animals are coming out.

      Physical shape has a lot to do with it. A man in better shape will have more stamina and typically more control. Therefor age can play into it. an older man in poor health won't be as good as when he was younger. But a 40 year old in great shape will out do a 20 year old in poor shape.

      And it is possible for a man in his 20s to have no control. Just like it's possible for a man in his teens, 30's, 50s, 70s etc. to have no control. It could be a medical problem if by "no control' you mean he doesn't even get up to bat. If you mean he only lasts a few seconds, he'll probably be like that his entire life without some intervention (like a condom).

  14. QUESTION:
    How To Last Longer in Bed Without Pills - any solution for this?

    • ANSWER:
      1) Thinking versus feeling

      Many men who have a premature ejaculation problem tend to focus allot on problems they have with their thoughts. I have heard numerous times that "I get so overwhelmed with the sexual thoughts in my mind that I just end up Cumming". Well this is perfectly understandable but there is a way around the problem. When we switch our focus to what we are feeling rather than what we are thinking this can really slow things down for us and enable us to last longer in bed without pills. Switching your focus to what you are feeling will slow down your mind and bring you more into the moment as well. Focus on the pleasurable sensations and the feeling of her skin on yours and you'll get the idea.

      2) Relaxation versus tensing

      Next time you make love what you will notice is that your body tenses up before you actually reach climax. The thing to do here is to relax the muscles of your body more as you are reaching these points of no return. What you will notice is that your urge to climax will diminish and you will add some time onto your ability to last in bed.

      3) Talking versus silence

      One element of premature ejaculation that is often overlooked in its ability to help people is talking part. What I mean by this is that the problem with allot of couples who are suffering is that they don't want to address the problem themselves in their conversations. This can lead to the man becoming scared that his partner may leave him for another man, and the woman can feel frustrated and afraid to bring the subject matter up.

    • ANSWER:

    • ANSWER:
      You've got some good tips already kegel exercises, pulling out and doing something else etc...Also try actually using condoms. My husband always last longer with them than without. Makes sense, the vagina was made to feel good to a penis, with a condom you're blocking some of that. It's also an extra form of birth control because the pill isn't 100% effective.

    For example: Pills, something to drink, cream/lotion, oil etc etc

    Thanks all for your help :)

    • ANSWER:
      He needs to focus on other things during sex and not focus on oh my look what Im doing Im getting some, because we work off of visuals the more we see the harder it is to hold back. try turning off all the lights and see if that helps. As for supplements they are all a waste of money and time its all about mind control and if he cares enough about you he will try to hold it a little longer so he is not the only one satisfied.

  22. QUESTION:
    What kind of pills or supplements I can use to have a harder erection and last longer in bed?
    I already been told that viagra isn't healthy for me at my age (22) and I really want something to keep me going and not c u m so soon. I can get a hard on easily, but its so difficult for me to keep it hard for at least an hour. I want to be able to blast sperm like a pornstar.

    Is there any type of vitamin, pill or supplement to help me perform better? I want to be a sex machine and cover my lovers in a bucket load of sperm and have a long lasting, hard penis. Like Peter North, Rocco Sifredi, etc.

    Anyone can give me any websites, information, ANYTHING to help me find out what is good for me to take for my age.

    Thank you a ton.

    • ANSWER:
      a lot matters on your partner, your own mental state at that time. There are times when even two and three times a night is not enough to satisfy me, and I am 47. At other times, if my or my partners mood is just not there, then keeping erect even for a few minutes is a big thing. It's all in the mind. Don't think about wanting to keep erect for a n hour when you are doing it, just consider the task at hand-pleasuring your partner and getting pleasure from your partner. You are young and over a period of time will definitely develop the art of keeping your self on the edge but not letting go while your partner's has orgasms.

      Be happy as you are!

      stay away from viagra unless theres a medical reason. If you have problems with quick ejaculation then try a desensitizing cream. It slightly deadens sensations so you dont get over stimulated too soon.

    • ANSWER:
      Do you masturbate a lot? If yes, do it from a different position, and do it more sensually. I know this sounds weird. But it's because you have all the blood flowing to your penis, and that causes your heart to pump harder and faster, causing the rise in adrenaline, which causes you to climax earlier.

    is their pills to make you last longer in bed?

    • ANSWER:
      Research has found that there may be a link between nitric oxide levels and premature ejaculation (check out the article below). There are several ways to increase nitric oxide, including foods (grape juice, green peas) and supplements (horny goat weed, l-arginine, etc.). I take Spartan Blend, but you should ask your doctor before you take anything- especially if you have a heart condition. If you're under 18, don't take anything. If you are looking for more research, you may want to search Pubmed for more studies.

    if i stopped masturbating will i last longer in bed?? What is the best action to takeso that i can last loner in bed? Nothing to do with pills i dont want to use pills.

    • ANSWER:
      Masturbating less often would likely have the opposite effect, because your sexual tension will be higher when you have sex with another person, and your sexual response will likely run away with you.

      Quick ejaculation is generally due to unfamiliarity with one's own sexual response. It can sometimes happen because of a habit of coming quickly during masturbation, possibly because of embarrassment or guilt. A habit of coming as fast as possible will carry over into experience with a partner. Habitually masturbating this way also prevents becoming acquainted with one's own sexual response, so that you have not control over it.

      Try masturbating mindfully. Go slowly, and pay attention to your feelings. Don't try to have an orgasm as quickly as possible. Learn what kind of touching can let your excitement grow slowly and gradually. Learn to recognize the feeling in yourself that says that ejaculation is imminent, but not unavoidable. You can stop or slow your stimulation at that point, and let the feeling subside, then resume when you're calmer. When you can do this by yourself, you will be more able to employ it with a partner to lengthen your time. And don't worry about masturbating when you have a sexual relationship going with another person. Masturbating when you're alone will take the edge off and give you greater control when you're with your partner.

      Another thing you can do is concentrate on your partner's pleasure first. Pretend you don't even have a penis at the start. Make your partner feel good with stroking, kissing, hugging, etc. Stimulate your partner's erogenous zones with your lips and tongue, as well as your fingers. If your partner is a girl, you may be able to give her one or more orgasms before you insert your penis, and then it will not matter so much if you come fairly quickly.

    How to last longer in bed?
    My girlfriend and I love to have sex. We have a pretty decent sex life and it's great. The only problem is, she recently went on the pill and we tried unprotected sex. I could barely move I thought I was going to explode. But when I have a condom on I'm alright. How can I last a lot longer unprotected? I will take ALL suggestions.

    • ANSWER:
      Most men have the same problem. Don't worry about it. Unprotected sex lasts a much shorter time than when you have a condom on.

      Some tricks would be to drink before having sex. Being buzzed will make you go longer.
      Clench your ass cheeks together... Sounds weird, but, it works.
      Don't focus on how good it feels. Distract yourself... Think of other things.
      Focus on touching your tongue to the roof of your mouth.

      Honestly, switching to unprotected sex is kinda a downer for guys. it feels great, for sure. But, you now have to spend your time worrying about not getting off, rather than being able to let yourself focus on how good it is feeling.

If she lets you know that she cares about you no matter what and that she is happy with who you are and your performance in bed, you will relax and last longer.

    My best friend just confided in me that her and her hubby hardly have sex, because when they do, it lasts less than 5 minutes, and its not long enough to satisfy her. I dont know how to help her since its never been an issue in my marriage. I'd love to be able to give her some pointers. Any advice?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes there is one method. If you have a good partner and it is a goal for both parties- you get him close to climax, and then you switch to oral or kissing and then switch back to intercourse. Not only does that make the session more passionate but it also prolongs the orgasm. P.S. If it's taking her longer than him, maybe she could get a good toy and make that part of foreplay. Dont be shy! Then she'll not need him for more than 1 minute.heehee. And if he climaxes before she does, that doesnt mean he cant finish the job, there are plenty of ways if they use their imagination,,,and the toy..

    Tips on how a guy can last longer in bed?
    How can you have a longer(time) erection without using pills or how to, "keep the frosting in before finishing the cake"?

    • ANSWER:


Lasting Longer Bed Medication

If you want to get a hard erection which lasts for longer and enjoy more intense and satisfying orgasms you can with the proven combination of herbs we will look at in this article - lets take a look at how they work safely and naturally to help you enjoy better sex...

If you want to get any erection at all, you need nitric oxide; no erection is possible without it so lets take a look at what it does. Nitric oxide widens the blood vessels which feed blood into the penis, so it can take the increased volume of blood it needs into it to swell it and harden it and a stiff erection is formed. Many men suffer from low levels of secretion because this chemical declines as men age but the good news is the herbs - Ginseng, Horny Goat Weed and Cnidium will top levels up quickly and naturally.
For a strong libido and sexual staying power, you need high levels of testosterone but the problem is just like nitric oxide, it declines with age. You can however increase it with a number of proven Herbs. Ginseng and Cnidium (already mentioned earlier) will increase levels but the best herb of all, to get levels up quickly is Tribulus. Tribulus is the herb which athletes body builders and serous sportsmen take to improve strength and stamina levels but it also increases libido and improves sexual stamina, as well as containing sterols which give you prolonged and more intense orgasms.

You can also take herbs which can reduce stress and anxiety which are known passion killers. Not only can they reduce these negative inputs, they wll also relax the mind, improve your mood and give the body an energy boost, so you feel in the mood for sex. Two great herbs to help you do this are Maca and Ginkgo Biloba which are two of the world's most famous and effective herbs for improving sexual health.

If you take herbal sex pills you will be improving your sex drive and performance naturally and at the same time boost your overall level of health - so you can get more from sex and more from life.

    I know that there is ways or things I can do to last longer. I dont want to take any pills or any kind of medication. There has to be simple ways to last longer. Can anyone please answer this question!?

    • ANSWER:
      To the girl who said 25 minutes is plenty...I'm guessing this guy is like me, and most guys especially when they first start being secually active. They last like 3 or 4 minutes. Its not erectile disfunction or unusal at all. The only long term way to fix it is....practice, practice, practice. Every time you do it you will last a little longer. Your body has to get used to the feeling and build up stamina just like anything else.

      Some ways to last longer:
      Masturbate a couple hours before having sex.
      Go slower....not so hard and fast...pace yourself.

      Most importantly! Don't just have sex non stop till your done. Mix in foreplay, fingering, eating her out, etc. Use the "start stop" method. Start having intercourse...go until you feel like your about to come. Stop, then fool around with her, best way is to finger or eat her to keep her engine running while yours cools down. Then after a couple minutes start again and you will last just as long if not longer than the first time. Repeat until you and her are satisfied then have your grand finale. You can do this to yourself with masturbation to build up your stamina without her around.

    • ANSWER:
      SSRI's have been shown to delay ejaculation, best used in combination with ejaculation control exercises

      most often the exercises are good enough on their own though

      Ejaculation control exercises will train you to last as long as you want during sex

      I used to be a major premature ejaculator, now I can last 30 minutes or more, non-stop penetration

    I have been worrying for sometime now. I have been with my girlfriend for 3 months now, and we have just started having sex. I am embarassed though as I can only last between 2-3 minutes, and this bothers me, and I think this bothers her as well. She does know I am trying my best though. Are there any methods to help me last longer? I hope to last at least 5 minutes... Any methods involving medication or pills I will not go in that direction, I dont feel comfortable with it. If it helps I am 19.... Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      well your still a young pup- should get better with age BUT 90% of women do not have an orgasm from penetration so that being said you need more foreplay- start off and stop and go on to something else and then get back to it! this way you feel and kinda did last more like an hour and the starting and stopping will help!

      nothing wrong with you getting that "feeling" and stopping and doing things to her while you calm down then go back to it

      good luck

  11. QUESTION:
    i want him to last longer in bed! i need help?
    what can i do to make my husband last longer in bed? our foreplay is only about kissing and caressing for 1-2 minutes because he's so eager to enter.i'm thinking about suggesting pills or other medications to him but will this going to bring side effects? he's 49 and i'm 26 we just got married January this year.sex was good first few months but now everything is bland.our love making session only last for 10 minutes he cannot carry on because he lost his energy the second time.i'm not happy i even sleep in different bedroom last week just to avoid sex with him.

    • ANSWER:
      Maybe, before getting married, you should have thought about the fact he is a good 20 years older than you and may have a different sexual agenda to you.
      Sex is always good in the first few months - everything is new and exciting and you are exploring each others bodies, likes, dislikes all new things to you both
      Sexual energy is at a high
      But things do become familiar between you and sex develops a pattern or at least usually decreases in time spent doing it and frequency, it becomes more of an intimacy thing than so much of a randy exciting thing
      I don't think you need to get him pills etc, just talk openly and honestly bout how you feel at your age your libido is most likely alot higher than his so be gentle its nobodys "fault"
      How well have you really thought this marriage through?
      Are you willing to compromise on this? Because if this is how he feels sexually and he doesn't want for more you may just have to live with it - he may be happy as larry with your sex life.
      Ofcourse you can leave or find ways to please yourself but thats up to you.
      Communication is the key - don't place them blame!!
      Use sentences that start with "I feel" so you are owning your emotion and not putting the blame on him
      He should feel more open to discussion and your ideas if he doesn't feel attacked
      Make sense?
      Good luck.

  13. QUESTION:
    bedwetting medication no longer working?
    My 13 years old has started back wetting the bed again. He took a medication called DDAVP 0.2 mg. He took it for almost 2 years and it worked great. The last 2 weeks he has been wetting the bed practically every night. I called his doctor and she advice to increase the amount but he is still wetting the bed. Is there another medication out there that can help with bedwetting?

    • ANSWER:
      DDAVP (desmopressin) is a synthetic hormone that reduces the amout of urine produced the night he takes it. I would be reluctant to recommend continuing the prescription. The FDA last month announced new concerns with the drug related to a number of seizure side effects. No drug "cures" bedwetting, they only serve to "dry up" your child and most children start wetting again when any of the drugs are discontinued. The only intervention (other than waiting and waiting for him to get dry) is the use of a bedwetting alarm.

      Bedwetting alarms are the most effective treatment for helping children achieve dryness. Around 80% of children can be PERMANTELY dry in an average of 12 weeks. Most people, and many doctors, don't understand how the alarms work. Please see some of my other posts or visit a good web site like the Bedwetting Store to learn how to be successful with an alarm. An alarm takes time (weeks/months), requires you to help him learn how to wake from a deep sleep, but the results are permanent. You must be patient and stick with it. Progress is very slow at first, but once he begins to wake It is worth the effort and your son will be dry. No expensive drugs and diapers.

  14. QUESTION:
    Lasting too long in bed unless I accidentally ejaculate too fast?
    When I have s_ex with my wife if I don't finish before about 10 minutes I have a really hard time finishing if I finish at all. We try different positions and fellatio but after 10 minutes it seems to be a problem. The problem is my wife and I want it to go more then 10 min say 30-45min. But if I don't ejaculate early which I usually prevent from occurring we could go over an hour and I wouldn't be able to ejaculate most of the time. We often have to have a quickie an hour afterwards so I can release a load otherwise I stay really horny.

    So I'm just wondering after 10 minutes do I just become de-sensitized or something? If that's the case what can I do to re-sensitize?

    Sometimes after making love for a while it feels like I'm gonna orgasm (you know the whole spasms and everything but I don't ejaculate) I'm still fully erect, excited and nothing came out. It's not like I released a few times earlier in the day so is this a dry orgasm? Could this part of the issue and if so how?

    Btw I'm uncircumcised, 25, fit, healthy and am not on any medications.

    Thank you

    • ANSWER:
      Treatment for delayed ejaculation varies depending on the cause. The condition often resolves once the underlying physical cause (e.g., injury, disease) is treated successfully. In some cases, learning to better manage stress may be helpful. Avoiding alcohol and illegal drugs, getting enough exercise and sleep, and eating a healthy diet also are important.

      Delayed ejaculation caused by medication can be difficult to treat, especially when the prescribed medication is working properly to treat the underlying disease or condition. The decision to put up with this unwanted side effect or to try another medication that may not be as effective can be a difficult one.

      Sex therapy and counseling often are used to treat delayed ejaculation caused by psychological factors. In this treatment, which usually involves both partners, a qualified mental health professional or sexual therapist takes a sexual history. A sexual history includes information about early sexual experiences and about past and current sexual relationships. Information about religious values and upbringing also may be important.

      Couples may be instructed to avoid sexual relations for a period of time to help reduce anxiety. In some cases, sexual activities that emphasize communication, emotional intimacy, and pleasure, rather than performance, are encouraged. Counseling can help resolve conflicts and personal issues (e.g., resentment, anger) that can contribute to delayed ejaculation. Hypnosis also may be helpful.

      Sex therapy and counseling is successful in about 75% of cases. Prompt treatment and the absence of serious psychological or physical problems increase the chances for success. Success rates also may be higher in men who previously had a satisfactory sexual relationship and in those who love their partner and desire sexual intimacy.

      There is always help out there. So don't over stress, not good for you.
      But I wish you lots of luck.

  16. QUESTION:
    Bed-wetting from medication or just coincidence???
    My 4 year old daughter has had asthma problems the last few days and a sinus infection. I took her to the doctor on Monday and he prescribed Zithromax, for the infection, and Prednisone for the Asthma, as well as instructed me to give her one treament a day of Pulmicort on her nebulizer.

    I did this Monday evening and all was fine...except the crazyness from the prednisone..she was bouncing off the walls...I kind of expected that....To make a long story short, she wet the bed Monday night, wet her pants Tuesday at school, and then again last night while sleeping....Mind you, she hasnt wet herself in a year...and now that she is on all this medication she has done it 3 times in 2 days. Is this a normal side effect???

    I have looked of the side effects and found nothing of the sort...Is this normal?? She bounces off the walls with the prednisone, and wets herself at night????

    • ANSWER:
      Not the prednisone, but the Pulmicort is REALLY making her bounce. I know when I have taken it for bronchitis, I can't sleep for 3 days. Horrible stuff. Poor kid.

      Predinose can cause extreme thirst. If she is drinking a lot, that could be causing the bed wetting.

      Zythromax can cause yeast infections. If she has something going on in her genital area, that could be contributing to it as well. Remember, too, that after she has finished the 4 days of Zythromax, it will continue to be full-strength in her system for 1 more week. If she can have it, I would start giving her yogurt right away. That will help any yeast issues. You need to replenish the good bacteria that the Zythromax is killing (with the bad).

      I would call her pediatrician and or pulmonary doctor and talk to them about it. But don't stop the medications unless THEY tell you to.

  18. QUESTION:
    i have hepatitis c and taking medication for pain / bipolar how does hepc effect the absorption and metabolism?
    i took my normal dose of oxycodone last night before bed and i still feel pain free usually my normal dose doesn't last half this long. i dont know if this is just in my head but i think when i take any pill it kicks in a lot sooner than it did before i had hep c is that a sign of hep c?
    i know the liver which is the organ hep c screws up is basically the filter for the body i think lithium is the only pill i know of that does not ''go to the liver' its broken down or metabolized in the kidneys anyways could it be my liver making the pain medicine last longer cause its not filtering like it should? thanks Jim

    • ANSWER:
      Hepatitis C effects the liver and everything else because these it's part of the digestive organs and most everything must go through it to be digested into the rest of the body for the appropriate energy. Lithium alters the chemical make up of the brain and returns the level of what the brain lacks to normal. It is broken down and enters the central nervous system ( spine and brain ). It takes up to 2 weeks for the levels to begin to work right and also effects the kidneys and thyroid. The person taking lithium must use a normal amount of salt everyday and drink 8-12 8oz glasses of water to make sure that the lithium gets properly used and then flushed from the body through the kidneys. The pain drug you take gets broken through the liver like almost every drug does. When you have Hepatitis C you must keep drug intake to a minimum due to the fact any oral drug gets filtered through the liver and then goes throughout the rest of the body even to the places that don't need it. This is why many that take pain drugs get a high feeling from them. There are drugs that you can get a pain pump for and then the drug goes into the pump and the pain doctor can adjust both the dose and it goes through the spine and into the part of the body that is injured or is giving you the pain and not into the entire body. Ask your doctor to refer you to a pain doctor and see if you qualify for one. The only thing that I can think of that is causing your pain drug to last longer then it used to is because the dose you took was at night right before bed. Other then that you need to ask your doctor the next time you go to the office. Good luck and God Bless

  19. QUESTION:
    Premature ejaculation problem. (I will choose best answer for actual helpful answers)?
    When my boyfriend and I have sex he doesn't last very long. If were having slow soft sex he can usually last about 30 min to an hour. And that's not a problem. But I like sex to be kind of rougher. I like it deep and fast. And when we try to have sex this way Im lucky if he can last 5 min. And if I want him to last longer we have to stop for a few seconds during sex so he can concentrate on not cumming. So my question is: is there any way to make a guy last longer in bed without using any kind of medications? He is young and healthy so I don't want like Viagra or anything like that. Just a healthy natural way to help him last longer.
    Also. I cant get him to go another round. Weve tried rubbing one out and then trying again. But he doesnt like it.

    • ANSWER:
      What you've described is not premature ejaculation! I seriously hope you have not told your boyfriend you think he has a problem because is going to get a complex. 30 minutes is exceptionally long and an hour is just ridiculous; some people would consider it a problem if it actually took that long. 5 minutes is actually very good especially if he's pounding away. According to my human sexuality professor, 4-5 minutes is a pretty good length of time for penetrative thrusting. If this is too short a time for you to come, then have him go down on you first or have him use a toy on you in order to work you up before he penetrates you. There is more to sex than penetration which is why foreplay is such an important part of so many people's sex lives.

  20. QUESTION:
    Should I change my anxiety medication?
    I have been taking 50mg of Zoloft for panic attacks/social anxiety for years. I used to get really bad panic attacks, mostly at night. The only way I could get through them was closing my eyes, lying completely still in bed and concentrating on my breathing. Everything seemed to stop a few months ago, the panic feeling and the anxiety I had whenever I went out in public. It was great :) But it didn't last long. The really bad panic attacks seem to be gone but the social anxiety has worsened. I can't go out to eat with my family. Sitting in a restaurant full of people is torture for me. Even going to the grocery store is problematic. If I go there and I don't have my mind focused on a list or something like that, as soon as I enter the place I want to leave. The thoughts I have are always I need to leave, I need to get out of here, I need to get home. That's not normal, I know. I have a dr. app in two months, should I ask him to switch my med? Or just up my dose?

    • ANSWER:
      Dont wait two months!! Sometimes this happens, your body will finally learn to tolerate the medicine and you ened to up the dosage to make it effective again. Your body basically becomes immune to it. The need to leave, need to get out is called fight or flight where your adrenaline becomes pumping so much that you're body thinks it either needs to fight for survival or to flight, to remove the danger. For panic attacks, you really need to be able to manage them. One of the most effective techniques is letting the panic attack happen. often, they become a fear of the fear, you fear you will have one at night and actually make it happen. When you start to feel that unpleasant overwhelming feeling, you need to take deep breaths and talk yourself off the cliff is what I say..remind yourself that you know what this is, and that everytime it has passed. I used to have horrific panic attacks, but the key is to work through them. As much as youfeel like you need to lay still, continue doing what your in the middle of doing. It will pass, you will see. You really need to fight through it

  21. QUESTION:
    oh no :'( .. i think iv hurt him.?
    im 20 and my boyfriend is 19
    and he is so upset with me right now. (i think)
    im not sure why?... i had no intensions of upsetting him, or making him annoyed.

    to the story. i previously asked a question yesterday.

    http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20091118082403AAdaVEg

    thats the question, its basically about what me and him can do in order to help him last longer in bed, because he is upset about it..
    well anyways. i just gave up on thought now,so i rang him and explained how i felt about this whole sex prombelm stuff and he was so annoyed with me.. i told him the truth, that hes not the only one whos upset about it, and that i feel there is plenty we can do to over come it.
    iv tryed to help him any way i possibly can, im really low on ideas now, iv tried everything. and hes taking offensie to it when i am not meaning to upset him,
    we love eachother to bits and we cant let this problem get us down, but hes upset and embarresd enough about it without me having to bring up the subject. but i think we should talk about it and hes refusing to, and now he is refusing to answer his fone or txt me back :(
    what am i going to do???
    i have apolagised, but i feel asif i shouldnt apolagise about it, i spoken my mind, i told him how i felt, and he is the one whos acting imature about it. me and my boyfriend have been together for 2 years. and in those 2 years we havnt had dencet sex what so ever, it doesnt last long enough to know we are actually having sex :( .. i cant orgasm in 1 min id have to be so talented to be able to do that. and its just becoming such hard work, bcos its tearing us apart, we just want a decent sex life, but how will we get anywhere if he refuses to talk about what he wants and feels?? or refuses any medication, he wont go to the doctors about it, and iv just had enough of talking and thinking about it. !! :( .

    • ANSWER:
      okay when i first had sex i think i lasted a minute. and the second time. and the 3rd. eventually i met this chick that taught me everything. basically he's getting too excited, thats why he's only lasting that long. i went from one minute man to hour man in a couple of days just by deep breathing and not thinking about the sex part while your doing it. like as a guy i just think of other things, then when the girl is about to get done i start really thinking about it, and i finish same time as her. never told the girl that though, but it works. there's also creams and certain condoms to desynthesis him so he doesn't feel it as much. or you can try him entering you then after a few seconds wait a lil bit for him to calm down, then go at it again, then stop, keep doing that until he can go as long as you want. if he doesn't get it after a couple of days, he might haave a serious medical condition which would involve him going to the doctor. as for him not talking to you, he must be really embarrassed about it. make him feel comfortable by sharing something about yourself your uncomfortable with to get him to open up. hope this all helps.

  22. QUESTION:
    How can i treat anxiety without medication?
    This summer i was diagnosed with anxiety. I've taken 3 types of medications and neither one of them has worked for me. The last one that i tried was Paxil which made me feel absolutely horrible for about 3 days, after just taking one dosage. I have muscle tension, pains in my neck, back and shoulder, headaches, and not to mention all these other weird pains throughout my body. Every morning i dread getting out of bed. I no longer want to take medications anymore because of the bad experiences that i have had with them. The stress between my finances, boyfriend, school and work is overwhelming and i know that it isn't helping my anxiety, but i need some relief for these symptoms. Does anyone know of any vitamins, minerals, or remedies that i could take to treat my anxiety without medication?

    • ANSWER:
      Medicine can't do anything.
      It can make you feel better, but it can't make you better.

      Anxiety is something nobody wants to live with. Anxiety can be accompanied by physical sensations such as heart palpitations, nausea, chest pain, shortness of breath, stomach aches, or headache Here are some things you can do:

      - Positive Thinking. Look on the bright side.

      - When nervous, stroke or pet an animal. This makes you heart rate slow down, and makes you calm down, because you feel needed.

      - Do a body melt. In order to do this, sit or lay down. Take a deep breath. Imagine your legs getting heavy.....now your stomach...Now your chest....Now the rest of you. Breathe in, hold your breath for five seconds, and release.

      - Take a deep breath. Imagine as the air comes out your worries come with it.

      Good luck!

  23. QUESTION:
    31 weeks and on bed rest??
    I'm 31 weeks pregnant and currently on bed rest cause I was having contractions. I started having contractions at 30 weeks went to the hospital and they did all kind of tests and put me and the baby on monitors. Also they gave me some medication called "procardia". I was hesitant to take it cause I was scared that it would affect my baby but my doctor said its fine and if anything it will help cause the baby is too immature to be born. He said her lungs need to develop some more. So now I'm still on bed rest a week later and hating it with a passion. Has anyone else been through this? I'm still having mild contractions and taking the medication. I'm hoping this bed rest thing won't last too much longer. It's making my days go by evern slower.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm 35 weeks and have been on bed rest since just just after 31 weeks. I was put on for high blood pressure and thought after the first week surely they would let me off, well come to find out they are not going to let me off until the baby comes. so unfortunately I hate to tell you this your scenario is a bit more severe then mine so they will probably keep you on bed rest for the remainder of your pregnancy. but take heart at least they did not put you on bed rest in the hospital and make you stay there until the baby is born. Good luck to you and be careful, just get past the 34 week mark and your baby should be fine.

  24. QUESTION:
    Seizure or medication related muscle spasms?
    Last Wednesday, I went to bed at 10pm. I woke up at 2am-four hours later-because my 2 month old son was crying for a bottle. That's when I remembered to take my Risperdal, which is a sedative for schizophrenia and/or bipolar 1 (manic) people. I have bipolar 1.
    Later that night, my right arm started to twitch while I feeding my son, and I remember thinking, "Please, not again", because a few years ago, I took Abilify and Geodon, and they both caused me to have bad muscle spasms. But this time was worse. I started to feel like I was going to swallow my tongue. After that my foot started twitching really bad, and I realized I had to get off the bed, or I would end up unintentionally kicking my baby in the face (he was laying in front of me on the bed).
    Long story short, I started having muscle spasms so bad, I couldn't walk. I literally could not function. I was screaming in pain and frustration. I was conscious, and I remember everything.
    My fiancé called 911. The paramedics came to the apartment, and that's when my spasms slowed down, I still couldn't walk too well, so i needed help getting into the wheelchair that they strapped me into.
    Ten minutes after I got to the ER the spasms had completely stopped. A nurse came in with Benadryl, and they sent me on my way. The spasms returned about 15 mins later as I was waiting in the waiting room for my taxi to arrive. When I got home-with assistance from the cab driver-I had to lay down on my side, because I literally felt like I as going to swallow my tongue. That was two days ago, and I only took the medication that I thought caused it one time. The next day-yesterday-I felt the symptoms very lightly all day.

    If my medication caused all this, would I have still felt those effects after that long? Would I have felt that affect at all after only taking it once? What's the difference between a seizure and a muscle spasm caused by a sedative medication? Do I have to be unconscious or have no memory of the event for it to be a seizure? Shouldn't they have run more tests in the ER instead of simply assuming it was my medication?

    • ANSWER:
      you get some medical help as soon as you can,yes all these drugs interacts..you can have partial seizures and yes you could remember it.so many variables,and yes the spasms could well be of seizure...these med can make your tongue feel like that,but this something y/a should not be advising you with,you really need go back ER or at least see dr get referral asap.As to if ER should done more that hard to say because you need far more test than ER would or could do.but pleeeeeeeeeeze go straight back if it starting again

  25. QUESTION:
    Looking to overcome "performance" issues?
    I'm trying to find ways to last longer in bed.

    The new girl that I'm fooling around with is much tighter than my ex and I'm finding it hard to keep myself under control. My previous girlfriend had given birth within the last five years and was definitely less "snug" than my new one, but I never had an issue controlling myself with her. Now that I'm with a woman who has never had kids, I find myself finishing WAY before I want to. I want to please my new lover and learn to control myself again, but I'm finding it difficult to figure out where to start. I thought it would help if I kept a slower pace, but no luck. I've tried pulling out and trying to calm down, but then I only last about a minute before I have to pull out and calm down. I've even tried thinking of other things, which either works or I think too hard and "things" go soft. I swear, at this point, I think my new lover could make me finish simply by squeezing her muscles repeatedly! I would really like to correct this issue so that I can "finish" with or after her. Since she enjoys the penetration aspect of the act the most, finishing with her is extremely difficult for me.

    Has anyone else had this issue? Would a cock ring help? At least then I would be able to stay hard after I'm done, right? Also, has anyone else experienced an amazing difference in tightness when switching lovers?

    Any mental training ideas would be the best, since I would prefer to not utilize any artificial methods (toys, creams, medications, etc). But, since beggars can't be choosers, I will gladly accept any advise at all.

    Also, I'm in my early twenties, not new to being sexually active, and in somewhat-good physical shape. This is not a health issue, nor is it an issue of premature ejactulation...I simply get too excited and I'm unable to think of a feasible and discreet way to calm myself down.
    I had already brought myself to an orgasm twice that day, since I knew I was going to be seeing her. I thought that would help me out, but it did little to calm me down once I got in the middle of things.

  27. QUESTION:
    Pounding Headaches Lasting All Day, Every Day?
    i'm gonna try my best to explain all of my symptoms and my daily activities that might have something to do with these headaches.

    first of all, the way the headaches feels: i wake up with them, and when i sit up from bed, i feel a pulsing at the top/frontal part of my head, never the sides or back. this happens periodically in the day when i'm getting up from a chair or just walking around. i hear a pulsing sound when this occurs, and the only other thing that happens is i feel dizzy and/or fatigued. i've never vomited, had a seizure, fainted, or had any other pain anywhere else in my body when getting these headaches. drinking water, eating, or taking headache medicine doesn't help. my eyelids also feel heavy, and i find it takes a lot of energy to carry on conversations or perform daily activities.

    now, my daily routine/habits: i go to school 5 days of the week. my normal amount of sleep ranges from 6-8 hours depending on the day. i usually go to bed between 9 and 11, and get up between 6:30 and 9 in the morning depending on the day and my schedule. i never have trouble falling asleep, and i usually don't wake in the middle of the night. i eat as soon as i get up, and throughout the day, i eat when i get hungry, not too much, and try to drink as much water as i can. the school i go to is a beauty college, so i am working on hair most of the day. when i get home, i go on my computer. this does not lessen or worsen the head pain.

    the things that make the pain worse are heat, strong smells, and certain types of light, usually florescent. i've always had headaches since i was little; they run in my family. however, they've never been this severe or lasted this long without stopping. there was a point in time where i had no headaches at all, and then one day i had a minor headache that i took ibuprofen for, and then they started getting worse. maybe the medication has something to do with it? also, drinking coffee lessens the pain a little, where it'd usually make it go away. so i know my previous headaches were caused by caffeine withdrawal, but considering that it only makes the pain subside a little makes me think that this is not the case.

    i would go see a doctor, but i'm afraid of having blood drawn. i know, it's rather silly, but i'm VERY afraid of needles. if there is someone, a neurologist or something that knows about headaches that can answer this question, i'd be very grateful. if i can think of anything else, i'll add more details. thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      Im not a nuerologist . There can be several things going on. first of all if you get headaches for a few days in a row and take medication for them your body can actually start giving you headaches because it wants the Medicine.This is called a rebound headache. if your blood pressure is to high it will cause a headache, and pounding in your head. third is can be a problem in your brain - anurysm, tumor, ( not likely but could be.) If the caffine helps it could be a type of migraine- they actually give migraine sufferers caffine to open the blood vessels wider and increase the blood flow to yoru head relieving the pain. It can be serious so even though you are afraid of needles you need to amke an appoint ment and be seen.

  28. QUESTION:
    Help! Terrible long lasting Anxiety?
    It began with a "night terror" I had last night, but instead of waking out of it like I normally would for one I decided to remain in this dream state. Instead of panicking I went into a state of like treading water and it felt fantastic like I was on top of the world.
    I woke out of it, it was early and I decided to get out of bed and then I noticed this cold feeling on the top of my head and it wasn't going away. I shrugged it off and went to the bathroom to take a shower just like every morning and suddenly I had bouts of panic adrenaline feelings.
    I sat it out of course for 2 hours and hadn't had a change in my symptoms (tell you I'm perfectly healthy before this, and never had anxiety) and so I phoned the medical hotline and concluded I go to the hospital.
    So I go there, and nervously talked to the doc about my symptoms and then he prescribed me medication to tailor the effects of the nervousness.
    Went home took the pill and it subdued me and from there I had a 4 hour sleep to catch up with last night’s lack of sleep.
    I wake up and I'm like, "please be gone, pleaaaase" but to my dismay the weird feeling remains.
    so that brings me to here,
    yahoo
    If this persists more than a week, I'm afraid I'll go insane, in fact technically I do suppose I have a fear of this not going away, which would be rational because I've never had anxiety before.
    I couldn't find for myself other people with similar experiences as if they activated something in there head that shouldn't be on.
    I really need help here please :(

  29. QUESTION:
    I put dog flea medication on my cat...?
    My kitten is four months old and I put some over the counter flea medication for dogs on him. My mom gave me the medicine. Later my boyfriend and I found the cat laying on the bed shaking. We brought him to an emergency vet but they said they couldn't do anything without payment and I don't have any money. They said his temperature is steadily rising and without treatment he won't last very long, and he's dehydrated. His organ systems are shutting down...Is there ANYTHING I can do at home to help him??

    • ANSWER:
      Unfortunately there is no home treatment for your negligence. You've poisoned your kitten, and it's destroying his liver and kidneys. Without IV fluids to flush his system, there is nothing you can do. This is not a time for home remedies.

      And vets do not accept animals for treatement without payment guarantees up front unless you're an established client. Too many people think it's OK to 'stiff' the vet, and then they've spent effort and money (drugs, etc.) for which they don't get compensated for. You can't blame them for wanting to be paid for their services - emergency vet care is very expensive, the same as emergency medical care is expensive for people. There is no law in the US that says vets cannot refuse treatment without payment like there is for people. When people don't pay the doctor, the doctor is reimbursed from some sort of welfare payment. When people don't pay the vet, the vet is just out that money. Big difference.

  30. QUESTION:
    Questions about md doctor and phd therapist and anti depression medication?
    Hello! I was referred to my work to call our EAP program and the company referred me to a therapist who has a PHD. I went to one appointment with him and he was very nice. I have never seen a therapist before. We only met once and he wanted to see me for a few more weeks he said and then he wanted me to go to my md and let her know how I am feeling. He felt that I had mild to moderate depression. The next day I was depressed and then anxious. I had tons of energy. I went to go see my md and when I was in her office I was down/depressed. She prescribed me Citalopram, 20mg. She told me to take it at night with food.
    I was nervous to take the pill. I have never been on anti depressants before. I read all the side effects and it made me more nervous/anxious. I took the pill when I was tired at my normal bed time. I feel asleep pretty quickly, within a half an hour. Long story short, I awoke at midnight and was very sick. I immediately was sweating, couldn't breathe (hyperventilating) felt very drugged, started vomiting which was about 5 times in a row at least. I spent from 12AM to 6AM dizzy even when laying down, waves of nausea, feeling really drugged, and almost anxiety I think because I was nervous as heck (pacing, feeling freaked out, etc.) After 6 AM I was no longer sick. I was feeling really drugged and felt anxiety all day with crying on and off. As the day went on, the closer it got to 10 PM I was not feeling as nervous and drugged, I was really exhausted but still felt I could not sleep. Finally at midnight I fell asleep. I was up for 24 hours at this point. During the day before bed I contacted my md doctor and she called me in a anti nausea and recommended I take half the pill with anti nausea and see if that helps. She also told me she would write me a note to be excused from work for three days to allow the medication to adjust. Last night I slept for 4 hours, woke up and felt really relaxed and was very smiley. :) I was still tired a little so I decided to try to go back to sleep after being up for a few hours. I slept for another three hours. WHen I woke I was tired/groggy and felt depressed. I forced myself out of bed. After showering, I started to feel better. As the morning went on, I did not feel quite as drugged, but I still feel drugged even now. I was able to do some things around the house without having to force myself, like before. I do have a hard time focusing today. I still feel tired. However, I don't feel like sleeping.
    Is all this normal? My doctor's nurse told me today that the reason for trouble sleeping could be the anxiety or the medication, hard to say. I have no idea what to think. Am I starting to feel the effects of what the drug will be like after 4 weeks or more? I thought it took 4-6 weeks for it to work. Could this be that my body is trying to adjust to it and in 4-6 weeks I will feel the total effects? Will the trouble sleeping, feeling drugged somewhat, and feeling tired subside in time? I am not used to feeling "a little out of it and I am not used to feeling this relaxed. I mean it's nice and I still have to work on not worrying to much but I am not worrying as much as I was yesterday. I also have a appetite today as well. Yesterday while on the 20 mg I did not feel hungry hardly at all. It was not until later in the day I actually got hungry and I was scared to eat so I just ate soup and toast and had some bread during the day if I felt a little hungry.

    I am sorry this is so long, I just don't know who to ask and I thought someone on here maybe could answer my questions. Thank you very much for any clarity you can send my way.

    My second question is this: What is the difference between a MD and a PHD? Should the therapist referred me to a md or should he have sent me to a psychiatrist? I am still going to go see the therapist, I have three appointments set up with him and I will continue to see him if he helps me.

  32. QUESTION:
    Does Medicaid cover opoid pain medication?
    I have had severe, chronic pain for about ten years now. The last time I went to the doctor, my Medicaid (which had always covered it in the past) was suspended because of a clerical error, but my doctor told me that a lot of people could no longer get their pain medication through Medicaid. They sent me a new Medicaid Card after the clerical error was fixed (I had moved!) but I am not sure if it will be covered now. I did get a temporary card and it DID cover my medication, but now I am worried because my quality of life will be seriously compromised.
    I have read that Medicare does NOT cover it. (They also sent me a Medicare Prescription Drug card which is useless.)
    I will be confined to my bed and unable to do anything if I cannot get my medication!

    • ANSWER:
      Yes it is covered as long as it is a generic version, and not the brand name.

  33. QUESTION:
    Why did I have this creepy and weird dream?
    First off, I'm 17. I take medication to sleep. Last night I had candy before bed (long story).

    I did not dream this dream at night. I had a normal sleep and then woke up from a phone call from my mom asking to turn the water off. So I went back to sleep and then I had the dream.

    It reminded me of some other dreams I have had, but this one just freaked me out. I don't really know why.
    It was in my house. I was with a girl that I am no longer friends with and we were pushing large nails out of wooden squares and placing them on the floor. We kept looking at the door like someone was going to catch us. We then went into the next room and hid in the closet, with the door open for some reason. The person we were hiding from came in and found us. She took us down stairs to were her husband is. She made me call my mom, and when my mom said hello I tried to say "help" but it was impossible. It just wouldn't come out. And then I woke up.

    So, this may not seem creepy or weird to you, but I'm a very paranoid person and freak out about most things.
    Can you help me understand what this means?

    • ANSWER:
      Why are you no longer friends with that girl? Did she do something that had hurt you? I think this dream means that when you were friends with this person, you felt very paranoid around her. Maybe she got you into trouble a lot, which could explain why you were hiding from this certain person. When you couldn't even talk to your mom at the phone, I think it meant you couldn't even explain to others that you haven't done anything wrong.

      Or it could be the fact that you are a paranoid person, and you had this dream because it was just how you think. Why are you so paranoid?

  34. QUESTION:
    Maybe TMI, & sort of long, but needs answer, please read. (pregnancy & medication) Thanks a bunch....?
    So my period is 10 days late. For the last 2 weeks I have been extremely tired, like today I didn't get up until 240 in the afternoon, and I had went to bed last night around midnight. I need a nap or two everyday or I am just horrible to put up with lately. I have also been getting these random hotflashes. My breasts aren't sore. But 4 days ago, I took a home test and it said negative, but I want to be sure so what should I do? Also, I'm just a little concerned because if I am pregnant I would like to know because I take zoloft and cipro and I'm sure those aren't good for a baby. Does anyone know if either of those are okay to take if you are pregnant? Also, can anyone tell me how long I should wait to take another test ?

    • ANSWER:
      Recent studies suggest some antidepressants/antianxiety medications can cause birth defects. I was on paxil for the first month or so of my pregnancy and found out about possible birth defects and quit taking it right away. So far, no birth defects have been detected and I'm at 29wks now.
      I suggest taking another pregnancy test. If you are pregnant you will need to call your doctor and talk to them about taking the medications while pregnant. If they suggest you stop taking them, ( I can tell you from experience) it's very difficult to have "morning sickness" and all the fun that comes with it PLUS going through withdrawl symptoms trying to get off of your meds. They don't tell you when they put you on those drugs, but it takes a while for them to work their way out of your system and in the meantime it can cause a lot of discomfort. I actually couldn't work and had a hard time just showering every day when I came off of Paxil. It's definitely something you will want to discuss with your doctor whether you're pregnant now or wish to be in the future.

      Good luck and best wishes:)

  36. QUESTION:
    Prescription for pain medication (read ALL)?
    Please read ALL before you answer. Thank you.

    Question:

    If I go to a medical clinic with chronic back pain (and a history of injury), would the doctor likely be willing to give me a prescription for pain medication without requiring bloodwork and/or x-rays?

    Additional information:
    I live in Georgia (USA)

    OTC painkillers don't do anything for me at all, regardless of the kind or strength. I've tried everything. It's literally as if I didn't take anything at all.

    Stretching, activity, hot baths, and the like don't do anything either-they neither increase nor decrease the pain in the chronic area, though they will work on other parts of my back or body.

    I walk a lot. If I'm feeling good enough to be up, then I usually manage a walk, at least a mile or two, sometimes more (its not unusual for me to walk 8 or 9 miles in a day if it's really nice out). Though my knee sometimes gets sore, the level of my back pain doesn't change, regardless of what it is.

    I suffer from incredible chronic back pain, to the point where there have been times lasting into two week periods when I literally can't get up.

    Most of the time I can mostly function, when I'm up and moving around I'd say something like 75% of the time I'm in pain but still able to function, 20% of the time it's bearable as long as I stay seated, and about 5% are days when I am not hurting at all or it is at a level that I can totally ignore.

    My pain tolerance is really high, and I can work through a lot of pain. I'd say the level I'm at when I can walk around on my own, the way I usually am, is maybe a half step to a step down from the level I was at when I was in labor, but I'd rank it worse on the scale because it lasts days or weeks or MONTHS at a time instead of hours. There are times where it is to the point where I am actually nauseous because of it.

    I'm pretty sure it's caused by various injuries I've had in the past, I used to break horses for a living and got hurt quite a bit, and a couple of bad leg injuries has left my left knee bad (to the point where I walk with a cane most of the time), my left foot has several joints which no longer move, and the ankle was badly injured several times and as a result the joint has become slightly misshapen. My left shoulder was also injured badly several times.

    I ALSO have an extra lumbar (lower back) vertebrae with a very thin disk.

    None of these have been treated by a doctor, so there isn't anything in my medical record about them.

    I've been in constant pain for about 4 years now, and in the past 2 years there have been at least six times when I have seriously thought about killing myself. NOT that I'm going to do that, but I'd say that when it literally hurts so bad all the time I want to die, it's time to do something about it.

    Additionally, the pain has kept me from having a life. Often I'm hurting to much to enjoy even going over to visit friends, the suffering i have to go through just isn't worth it, I'd rather stay at home where I have a bed and rollie office chair.

    I know I'm going to have to do something eventually, even if I don't do it right now, because I know I can't live like this for much longer, my general health is really suffering now from both stress from the pain and the effects of the deep depression I sink into when I'm hurting so bad I can't get out of bed and don't eat or sleep, and the days I don't eat because I'm either nauseous from the pain or it's not worth the suffering I have getting up and going into the kitchen. I am ONLY depressed like that when I'm in that much pain.

    We're in a bad place financially for doctors at the moment, though-we make to much money to be on medicaid but not enough to pay for insurance. We're living on my husbands income, in large part because there are so many times when I am not able to function well enough to work. I'd love to get a job again, but I can't do it until I can get rid of my pain.

    There is a sliding-scale clinic here that we use, which we can afford. Unfortunately, they don't have things like an x-ray there, and I'm not sure of what their bloodwork capabilities are. Though I can pay for a visit to the clinic, paying for bloodwork and x-rays will be really hard, and might not be possible for us to pay for at all.

    I don't want to go and waste a doctor visit, or have the people there think I'm trying to get painkillers to get high off of.

    • ANSWER:
      the type of clinic you're talking about usually understands that and will work with you as much as poss. and I seriously doubt they will withhold meds. They will want to make sure of the cause and if it can be treated with surgery. Some hospitals have monies set aside for cases like yours. The clinic may know one.

  37. QUESTION:
    What could be the cause of my stomach ache and low body temperature?
    This is very odd and not like anything i've ever had before. I'm obviously not looking for a diagnosis but was wondering if anyone has ever experienced something similar to this, what it might be, and if it sounds serious enough that I should see a doctor.

    Last night I was in bed when I was overcome with what felt like bad cramps in my stomach and dizziness. I had to use the bathroom three times in a row but it was not loose; I've also had to go again several times today. I have not thrown up but alternate between feeling completely fine and like I am going to be sick.

    I took my temperature earlier and it was 96.6 and my thermometer is NOT broken...I just took it again and it's back up to 97.6. (my normal body temp) At first I thought it was food poisoning of some kind but it no longer seems like that. There is no chance that I am pregnant.

    It almost feels like it's excessive stomach acid but my medication for this isn't helping. And why would my temp go so low? :(
    There isn't blood in my stool but i'll keep an eye out for it. The medicine i'm taking is also not OTC, it's prescription called "Aciphex".

    PS, I am not "depending on yahoo answers" for anything, only wondering if people have experienced anything similar and whether it turned out to be serious for them so I can judge how long I can wait to see a doctor. I really wish I could wake up and see one tomorrow but I *don't have medical insurance* so things aren't that easy for me. :(

    Thanks to everyone who has answered so far, if this persists or gets worse I will definitely make an appointment!

    • ANSWER:
      There are so many different things that have the same symptoms that it really makes good sense to see a Dr. Especially if they last more than a day or so.
      Was there blood in your stool? Red blood comes from downstream of the stomach, while coffee grounds looking blood comes up in the digestive area. Blood being digested could easily make you feel sick.
      Low body fluid can lower your temperature and cause cramps. Since you have been taking medication for excessive stomach acid, probably over the counter, you might have a bleeding ulcer. A co-worker had one and passed out right in front of me! It took a blood transfusion to get him going again. Nothing to fool around about. Go see a Dr.!

  38. QUESTION:
    Can a person be depressed even if he/she genuinely "feels" content?
    I'm not playing semantic or philosophical games here. I am starting to become concerned about myself. I feel like I'm pretty happy. I used to have social anxiety disorder and, I later realized once I started taking medication to treat it, mild to moderate depression. I feel a lot better, though.
    The problem is that I can't hold my interest in just about anything, at least not if I'm sober. I can only read a few pages at a time, watch half of a movie, etc. I also don't enjoy conversing with people, even now that it is no longer nerve-racking; instead, I just feel a boredom and sense of disconnect that I endure as long as my politesse holds out.
    What troubles me most is how I deal with this problem. I drink heavily, and for a while, things become interesting- books (at least until I get to the point of drunkenness at which I can no longer read), TV, companions' conversation, etc. Then I just get sleepy and go to bed. When I go through long periods of sobriety, the only way I know how to deal with it is to sleep as much as I can. I find excuses to go to bed early, then I lie in bed long passed my last moment of actual unconsciousness.
    I want to stress again that I really do not feel depressed. This is what I don't understand. I love my girlfriend, I have a great relationship with my family, I have a promising career ahead of me, and I jog daily. I "feel" good. I "feel" happy. But why is nothing interesting to me? And it isn't that I haven't tried challenging myself. Quite often I try reading a book on a very difficult subject, and I've tried studying foreign languages. I don't get very far, not because I don't feel that I'm progressing fast enough, but again, because I just can't maintain the interest.

    • ANSWER:
      Well, obviously you are aware that you are if not alcoholic then you are headed that way with a bullet. I feel the same way as you do about feeling content. And I also have a short attention span and have solved the problem by simply doing as I please. I only have one friend and I only see him once a month for a couple of hours.
      Warning though-- It gets worse as you get older, so warn your girlfriend.

  39. QUESTION:
    How to create the perfect tan?
    I normally would be in a tanning bed now but I am going on stronger medication and it increases the chance of skin cancer.... I havent been tanning in awhile and I am pale again! The self tanning creme I have is Hawaiian Tropic. The does the work but when I run it sweats off where my clothes are tighter. It lasts Id say around a week on me.

    When I went tanning I used Australian Gold Spray Gel with instant bronzer (very water resistant). It gets me tan in the bed for a long time.

    I am going to a swim party on Saturday. So I plan to reapply the Creme tonight and maybe try before I put the creme on and after (drys on for a little bit first) put the spray gel. I havent tried this ever before but I want to make sure my tan doesnt come off in the pool. That would just be embarrassing. So before I get into the pool put more spray on since its water resistance and just keep reapplying it through out the night. I have exfoliated the skin and shaved already. Should I put lotion on because the creme and spray or will this make the tan not stay on as long?

    Will Hawaiian Tropic Creme stay on in chlorine pool?
    Will Australian Gold Spray Gel mixed with the creme help it last longer?
    Will the two of these together on my skin be better in the pool?
    Should I put on lotion before applying the creme or spray?

    If you have any other ways of making it stay on me in a pool please tell.
    Thank you!
    Yes I know all UV rays gives cancer and with the medicine that I will be on gives me a 50% more chance of getting cancer. Having a tan I wont get burned AS much. And all the stuff out there now will soon enough give us cancer from shampoo, soaps, sun, chlorine, laundry stuff, smelling stuff, anything is possible with all the chemicals. I dont think its bad to want to look good for the summer and will this stuff its better to use than to go tanning and be on this medicine.

    Questions about the medication Adderall?
    Okay so I'm 29 and I recently been diagnosed With Adult ADD, so I just started to take the medication (adderall) 10mg twice daily... I followed the instructions for when to take the medication, one in the morning and one 4-6 hours before you go to bed, and OMG my heart was racing and it made me feel like I was on Crack! It made me feel energized, not hungry, and I couldn't get to sleep at all and here it is 7:30 a.m in the morning on july 11, and I took my last dose last night at 8:00 p.m......UGH my body feels tired but my mind doesn't.....Anyone ever been through this? How long does it last until your body gets used to the medication?

    • ANSWER:
      Call your doctor right away. This is what the medication does to people who do not have ADD if the medication is causing this in you then you have been misdiagnosed.

    how long does Ativan withdrawal last for?
    I was on a 20 day prescription of .05 for sleep use. I never intended to have long term use with this medication. Last night was my first night with no ativan before bed and i woke up this morning feeling like I got crazy drunk. I was clamy, shaky, disoriented, Im very sensitive to light, and Ive had 'belly issues' all day long. My doctor said I was going through withdrawals and I should feel better in a few days since it was a low dose and short term use. I went online to find out more info but it made me nervous..hearing the symptoms can last a while and can be serious. I dont want to ween off of it..since Im already a day into not taking it..so how long should my withdrawals last for? I feel terrible and Im hoping its not for too long.

  42. QUESTION:
    Medication to prevent night terrors?
    Since my daughter died last month and my prick of a husband didn't even show up to the services and we're now going for a divorce I've been having chronic nightmares. I've taken tylenol PM not only to sleep, but I choose to sleep on the couch because my marital bed is no longer welcoming-but the price I pay for that is a very sore back. My stress meter is through the roof right now, I started therapy and was given xanax when I had anxiety attacks on a PRN basis. I've noticed no matter what, sleeping pills or natural sleep, I have chronic nightmares. When I take the tylenol PM-I can't wake up from my nightmares so they just rotate in my head. My coworkers are saying that I'm looking 'tired' and really stressed out.
    I know about Ambien, but because of the side effects should I risk taking it?
    BO#44-I honestly pray to god you never have to lose a child you love dearly-your bitterness only shows that medication and therapy actually helps, and it can help everyone. I hope one day your wounds will heal and you won't be so insensitive to others.

    • ANSWER:
      The Tylenol PM is not the way to go. It has Benadryl in it. I think it is a terrible drug for sleep no matter the reason. From what you said you don't really have technical Night Terrors. Bad dream’s are not the same at all. But for nightmares a great drug is Pamelor (Nortriptyline) it is a tricyclic antidepressant (the first type of antidepressants before the Prozac and Zoloft era). It is one of the only drugs used for nightmares (oddly enough it can cause them too- rare). For Night Terrors the standard drug is Clonazepam (Klonopin). It is in the same drug class (Benzodiazepines) as Xanax but works a little differently. That might be a good choice and it is an anti-anxiety medication so that might help. Ambien is not great for what you have at all. And FYI Ambien side effects are incredibly rare. Benzo's like Xanax and Klonopin (and Ambien to some extent) change brain waves during sleep and cause less or no delta waves (Sleep Stage N3, deep non-REM sleep) and often less REM sleep. It is typically in Sleep Stage N3 (the stage Benzo’s block) when Parasomnia's like night terrors occur. And Benzo's almost completely inhibit that part of sleep.
      So no Tylenol-PM!!! If you are in pain just take Tylenol. And see about Klonopin if it is night terrors or Nortriptyline for nightmares. And with what you have been through it is not too uncommon to be anxious and have nightmares. You also might want to take a different med for daytime anxiety. Klonopin is good as it Valium, Ativan. Xanax is good but if you are always anxious taking it on a PRN schedule it not great. For a full days coverage with Xanax people typically take it 4 times a day (but Xanax XR is available to last all day).

      Good luck!

  43. QUESTION:
    When placed on a new medication, how common are relapses?
    My husband was having very big issues with depression, and anger, and temper, spacing out, saying HORRIBLE things but saying he was "trapped" inside his body and it wasn't really him saying them, etc. Lots of weird stuff. He went and saw a therapist and they put him on Celexa. It was weird because it started working practically immediately.

    He was spaced out/robotic for the first 2 or 3 days, but after that there was marked improvement. The only negative side effect was that he was very tired at the end of the day.

    He was actually happy. The temper/anger/depression went away. He no longer walked around with a chip on his shoulder. If upsetting things happened, sure he got upset but very rationally and without severe temper loss.

    He's been on the medication for almost 2 months now (20mg of Celexa at first, then after 30 days they upped it to 40mg.) Last night, he had a familiar episode. He started turning into a jerk for no reason, and pushing me away by saying extremely hurtful things. When I tried to reason with him, he continued even worse.

    When we discussed it later, he said it was the same thing again -- like it was someone else saying the things from his mouth. Like he had no control over what he said, and that while he was saying it, it was almost like he WASN'T saying it, and didn't want to.

    We went to bed, and this morning he's still off. He woke up with the old chip on his shoulder and the depression. When I tried talking to him about it he started spurting off all these negative emotions and feelings, which he hasn't done since he's been on the medication.

    He also said "My doctor told me to let her know if I've had any thoughts of hurting myself." So, I told him maybe he should call her.

    How common is this? I mean he's been great since he's been on the medication. Generally happy, and actually smiling. Normal, and seemingly balanced -- upset when he should be, happy when he should be, etc.

    Is this very common that he'd have a relapse 2 months in, or does this mean it's the wrong medication type for him, even though it's been working so well thus far?
    Yes. He went in to speak with a counselor. The counselor had him get a psychiatric evaluation done.

    She said he definitely has a chemical issue and said "we'll try Celexa." Well it seemed to be working wonderfully until yesterday.
    I talked to him about going to the hospital for an observation (I think it's 72 hours) but he's freaking out about getting fired from work. He doesn't know what to tell them. :( And *I* don't know what to tell him!

    I'm definitely worried for him.

    He has a follow up with the psychiatrist on Friday, and a followup with his therapist (just for counseling) NEXT Friday.
    I actually watch him take his medication every morning. I know for a fact a dose has not been missed. He takes it while he eats breakfast, and we sit together. I *know* he's taken every dose.

    • ANSWER:
      I have depression, i refer to it as my demon. Based on what you are saying, my uneducated guess is that your hubby has the same. 40mg of prozac is what works for me. We found that out through trial and error. Even while taking medication, I sometimes "relapse" into a fit of depression. Often, this is brought on by an external situation that I have no control over. (very unexpectedly I lost my job 4 months ago and this was the trigger for an episode).

      However, as Betty stated above, medication is only half of winning the battle. The hard part is being open and honest about what is going on. Medication only treats symptoms.

      If you chose to go with a 72 hour hospitalization, ask that the doctor run a blood test for a chemical imbalance (I forget the name of the test). They did this on my mother several years ago and found she had a chemical imbalance and put her on lithium. She had to have subsequent blood tests every 6 months to see if her medication needed to be adjusted.

      Good luck and God bless you and your husband.

  44. QUESTION:
    In need of advice for bad back pain lasting over 2 weeks!?
    Wednesday February 9th late at night I started to feel bad back pain. I went to bed thinking it was just back pain nothing else.

    * I had not done anything to my back.
    * I had not lifted anything to heavy.
    * I had not fallen at all
    * I had not been hit at all

    Thursday February 10th I woke up early morning in alot of back pain. So much back pain that:

    1.) I couldnt put any pressure on my back (meaning i couldnt put my back against anything)

    2.) I could not stand up straight at all (I am so bent over and cannot stand straight at all I look like a question mark or the hunch back)

    3.) The pain is horrible 10 or higher! Its from my butt to my neck. Most of the pain is lower back!

    4.) I was getting sick from the pain (sick as in throwing up, when I move or even when laying still)

    5.) The only thing I could keep down was toast.

    6.) Nothing can touch my back a tiny bit of pressure makes the pain worse!

    7.) I can hardly walk due to the pain in my back and the fact im bent so much

    8.) I cannot do anything on my own do to all the pain and being bent so far.

    I started calling my doctors about help due to everything heres the info that they have said and tests they ran and test results:

    1.) Hospital ran a pee test saying my symptoms seemed like kidney stones.
    ---Answer came back I do not have kidney stone, but I do have small amounts of blood in my urine (not on period)

    2.) Hosptial ran a xray to make sure of kidney stones
    --- Answer xray came out negative for kidney stones
    ---- Released from hospital with medication for a possible infection.

    3.) Seen my normal doctor she ran a pee test, and checked me out.
    ---Answer Pee test came out with just small amounts of blood in my urine.
    --- Answer checking me out she said she thought I had some type of infection taking over my body so she gave me pain medications to cure my infection.
    **** Pain medication did not help > actually made me really sick.

    4.) Seen a sports care doctor (aka back doctor) They said they could tell I was not in good shape and said it was probably just a musle spasum. But said it was obvious I am not well. They did a xray of my spine.
    ---- Answer, xray showed my l4 & l5 lumbar are fused together
    **** Doctor said maybe that is why I'm in so much pain, they gave me pain medication and set me up for an mri to see if my nerves in my l4 & l5 lumbar are damanged or not.

    5.) Pain medication did not help actually made me more sick

    6.) February 22nd had my mri done.

    7.) February 24th the doctor called and said my mri showed that my nerves are not damaged. But that my disk below my L5 is bulging.
    **** They said that would be causing a little bit of the pain but not all the pain im in.
    ***** THey said they dont know what else is wrong and advised me to see a pain managment doctor.

    8.) The doctor gave me pain medication and pain patches to wear but that is all they offered. They said when my pain goes to a 5 and im able to walk more and stand up more then ill have to go through physical therapy > but no idea when that will be.

    With all that is said above,
    1.) I'm still in alot of back pain
    2.) I'm still unable to stand up (still bent downward!)
    3.) I'm still getting sick off and on.
    4.) Pain meds are not helping at all.
    5.) Still unable to have anything touch my back as it adds more pain!
    6.) Unable to do anything!

    I'm looking for any advice, or ideas to try or even to look into! Anything would be appreciated! I'v delt with this for far to long, and cannot do anything at all! I'd like to have my life back. I'd like to find an answer or a different option to fix the pain issue so i'm able to stand up and have no pain or at least less pain! Right now doctors I'm personally seeing have thrown their hands up in the air and said they dont know and can no longer help. If you could please offer any kind of advice on what I should do or another type of doctor to look into seeing or even tell me something you think it could be so I can look up information on it or anything else I'd honestly with all my heart appreciate it! This has taken over my body, and has taken over my life. I no longer can live a normal life. I'd like to get back to normal and be able to do things again! Please...

    Please! And thank you to those who offer any kind of advice or ideas or exc. Myself, and my family are trying so hard but were running out of ideas so I thought id try to get others help at this point. Ill do anything for answers. And maybe you can think of something we havnt or even my doctors havnt!

    Thanks again!

  45. QUESTION:
    Preeclampsia question.. Has anyone been successful with just bed rest?
    At my 30 week check up last week my blood pressure was 130/90. I am usually around 112/70. There was also a trace of protein in my urine. They had me lay down on my left side for a few moments and then my BP was back down to my normal level. The doctor ordered me to have blood work and a 24 hour urine test(lovely). He told me no more work and to rest. I have been laying in bed on my left side pretty much all day except for bathroom/quick shower/to eat and my husband has been taking my BP regularly. It has primarily been around 102/62 everytime. I go back to the doctor tomorrow morning for results of PIH/preeclampsia tests. Has anyone been able to successfully manage their blood pressure with pre-e without medication?? If so how long were you able to carry your child?? I am getting anxious for tomorrow's appointment because I still gave 10 more weeks until my due date!!! Thanks for your advice; it is appreciated!

    • ANSWER:
      Preeclampsia is variable in how it will progress. It could remain relatively stable for awhile, but eventually it usually gets worse. It definitely will not get better, that's just the nature of the disease. And it's not exactly something you have control over, either. Bedrest alone can help a bit, but if the disease is going to worsen it will worsen regardless of if you're doing everything right. It's possible you might need hospitalization on magnesium sulfate. It's possible you might need to be induced or even to have a c-section if your condition deteriorates rapidly. But for now, just know that your doctor is keeping a close eye on you and will try to keep you pregnant for as long as it is safe to do so. The only cure for preeclampsia is delivering your baby, so if it comes down to it, you might just need to do that. At 30 weeks, your baby would need extra time in the hospital, but the good news is that it's mainly for feeding and growing, it's not like an extremely premature micro-preemie at 24 weeks or something. Your baby would very likely do very very well.

      Good luck!

  46. QUESTION:
    Can medicine cause Bed-wetting???
    My 4 year old daughter has had asthma problems the last few days and a sinus infection. I took her to the doctor on Monday and he prescribed Zithromax, for the infection, and Prednisone for the Asthma, as well as instructed me to give her one treament a day of Pulmicort on her nebulizer.

    I did this Monday evening and all was fine...except the crazyness from the prednisone..she was bouncing off the walls...I kind of expected that....To make a long story short, she wet the bed Monday night, wet her pants Tuesday at school, and then again last night while sleeping....Mind you, she hasnt wet herself in a year...and now that she is on all this medication she has done it 3 times in 2 days. Is this a normal side effect??? Should I ask the Dr. about this, or is it just coincidence or a phase?

    I have looked of the side effects and found nothing of the sort...Is this normal?? She bounces off the walls with the prednisone, and wets herself at night????

    • ANSWER:
      Absolutely!
      I was giving my eight year old daughter over the counter medication (I can't recall what it was, sorry!) and she kept wetting the bed and I determined that the medicine was making her sleep too heavily to get up and go to the restroom. She still wets the bed if she's extremely tired. Any medication that affects their energy levels could lead to bed wetting and accidents. Speak to your doctor about your concerns but rest assured, it shouldn't last forever. She's only four and this isn't that big a deal. I started to stress about my eight year old wetting the bed but I made myself realize it wouldn't last forever and that other factors were involved.

      Hang in there!

  48. QUESTION:
    If you have severe depression, what medication works best for you?
    By severe, I mean really deep depression. I have been clinically diagnosed with severe depression.

    I've had this for over 10 years and sought treatment 8 years ago (for the last 2 years its rapidly gotten worse). I'm underweight and can no longer socialize or exercise because I'm also weak. I'm unable to participate in outdoor recreation which was something I used to do everyday, I even fantasize about dying. I once was a university student in Anthropology but had to quit due to this.

    I am seeking counseling now, but it's difficult to get in on a regular basis because the office is always over-booked. (I've been to psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors, MD's, and DO's to no avail. Its almost like this disorder isn't taken seriously enough; though the DO's and MD's took it more seriously than the psych docs, which makes no sense). If I ever get better, rather than continue Anthropology, I am going to school to be an advocate for people with mental illness because I now I know how difficult it is to get the help that is so crucial.

    I'm now on Lexipro, however it always makes me sick to my stomach (which doesn't help when I need to gain back about 10 lbs, thus keep my food down), it makes me terribly jittery with the feeling of shocks throughout my body, and I still cannot get out of bed. It does, however, take away the suicidal thoughts.

    Any suggestions on medications or even alternative treatments? I'm literally desperate here.

    • ANSWER:
      Different medications will work for different people. Some with severe depression will also take a mood stabilizer to stop emotional crashes. Different forms of therapy also help such as dialectical behavioural therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, psychoanalytical therapy... the list goes on. For extremely severe depression electroconvulsive therapy may be required (ECT). I have had this treatment many times and it does work, although follow up maintaince ECT may be required at a later date.

  49. QUESTION:
    This is a weird question. How do I stay or want to stay awake longer?
    All I really want to do is sleep. I feel so tired all of the time. I take medication for Bipolar Disorder. I teach school and I swear I could go to bed when I came home. Last night I went to bed at 7:30. It is all I can do stay up right now. I have been sick and have had some blood work done and nothing has come back as being bad. I guess I am overall healthy. Is this normal for being 30? I use to stay up until midnight. Now I can't even watch TV. I catch all the shows I want to see on my computer now to catch up. Is this a silly choice I am making or is it more? My husband gets very upset. I don't know what to do. It is nothing against him.
    This has been going on for awhile.

    • ANSWER:
      Bipolar Disorder and the meds for it will cause sleepiness and you may have anxiety or depression along with it. If you have other physical problems, that only adds to the tiredness. Do you ever have manic episodes where you can't sleep?
      Exercise will help but don't do it before your bedtime as it will increase your meatabolism and keep you awake until it comes down. Take a 30 minute walk everyday and even better....see if you can get your husband to walk with you! Exercise induces sleep when done 2-3 hours before you unwind to go to bed. The TV shows aren't that important are they? What you used to do and what you do right now are two different things. Your age isn't important..as this illness can hit at any age. Teaching requires being inside alot and reading much material . The disciplining and efforts of a teacher are very tiring. You need to get outside. If you get extremely tired, have your meds reevaluated if you are taking them. If you aren't........you certainly need to be on something like Lamectil. Try yoga or meditation and have your quiet time by yourself. Try to go to bed at the same time each night and wake up the same time. Set the alarm and put it away from you, so you have to get up to shut it off instead of hitting a snooze button. I use sound machne with ocean waves everynight as I find it helps me sleep and the sound is soothing. It sounds like your husband doesn't really understand. I hope he is open to talking about it and walking or working out together. I am 59 and have noticed, along with friends and relatives around my age, that need a nap everydy even if they can't get one. It shouldn't be a long one though. Yes....even at 30....your meatabolism is changing and couple that with Bipolar Disorder and meds, It is not hard to see how tired you can be. If you are trying to kep up on all your shows online, this can e exhausting and yet it stimulates the mind therefore keeping you awake. You need something quiet to do before bed like a nice warm and relaxing bath or a good book to unwind. Try to cut out on catching up with shows. I can see where this would upset your husband. He may think they are more important to you than he is. TALK to your husband without any interruptions and listen to his thoughts calmly and attentively. Then you can work together (hopefully) to compromise and make you both happier. Most men and other's don't understand your illness very well. Take him to a seminar or a class if he's not dealing with your illness. He needs to know exactly what you are going through, be understanding and you both work together or your betterment of your marriage.

  50. QUESTION:
    What is wrong with my dog?
    I have an 8 year old male purebred Golden Retriever. He has been fighting oral melanoma since this past August when I found the first tumor. That one was removed. We didn't want to put him through chemotherapy and radiation because we don't want him to suffer, plus there can be very harmful side effects. He went on holistic herbal medication which effected his GI tract badly. He had very bad gas and diarrhea, plus he was very lethargic. I stopped that medication when I found another growth in his mouth. This one is in a spot where they won't be able to get the whole mass out, so we decided not to go for surgery. He is on a new medication --- Neoplasia E --- which hasn't effected him badly like that last medication. The past 3 days though, he has been acting very weird. He has been extremely lethargic - laying on his bed all day long. He has also be obsessively panting - even though I haven't walked him because of how lethargic he is. I don't know if it is suddenly the medication effecting him or if he may be getting sick. He has a vet appointment tomorrow but I just wanted to get some possible information before I go. Any ideas?

    • ANSWER:
      7 months is quite a long time to live if you have cancer with no aggresive medical treatment such as chemo, even in human standards. I understand as to why you may not have chosen medical treatment, but using herbs will not delay the inevitable. You may be facing some tough decisions tomorrow when you see your vet, this could possibly be the end. I hope you dog is comforatable and happy and enjoying his life.. maybe give him something very special for dinner tonight., good luck :(
