How to Safely Enjoy Sex

Sex is one of the most enjoyable things in life. However, an unplanned pregnancy and/or sexually transmitted disease can ruin one’s sex life. Fortunately, there are a number of things that people can do to practice safer sex. Below are some tips for having a safe and enjoyable sexual experience:

Use A Condom Every Time

One of the best things that you can do to prevent the spread of sexually transmitted diseases is to wear a condom every time that you have sex. Condoms are also about 97-98 percent effective at preventing pregnancy if they are used correctly and consistently. Before you or your partner put on the condom, it should be inspected for holes. Furthermore, a condom should never be used more than once.

Get Tested

Even though you may trust your partner, there is always the chance that he or she could be sleeping with someone else. Your chance of catching a sexually transmitted disease will be greater if you have an unfaithful partner. That is why you should get tested for HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases at least once a year. If you are an escort or someone who is promiscuous, then you will need to get tested at least once every six months.

Consider Using Another Contraceptive

Condoms are not 100 percent effective at preventing pregnancy, so you or your partner should consider using another contraceptive method. Birth control pills, patches, implants and shots are just a few of the many birth control options that are available for women. If you are a woman who has had at least one child, then you should talk to your doctor about getting an intrauterine device. An intrauterine device is a contraceptive that can prevent pregnancy anywhere from one to 12 years. This device is over 99 percent effective, which is why it is a great choice for an escort.

If you have decided that you do not want any more children, then you should consider getting a vasectomy or tubal litigation. Both of these methods are over 99 percent effective.

Practice Abstinence

There is nothing wrong with being abstinent. In fact, the only way to completely avoid sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancy is to not engage in sex at all. Not only can you prevent STDs and pregnancy by practicing abstinence, but you could also save yourself a lot of heartache in the long run. Abstinence is certainly not the most popular choices nowadays, but it is the best choice.

This is a guest post from our friends at Escorts and Babes, who take sexual health very seriously.

Hair Loss In Women - Six Causes

Hair loss in women differs with hair loss in men in the following ways:

Signs of hair loss in men:

Receding hairline
Moderate to extensive hair loss, particularly on the crown of the head
Signs of hair loss in women:

General thinning of hair all over the head
Moderate hair loss on the crown of the head or at the hairline
In summary, hair loss in women can start around 30 years of age and usually involves overall thinning rather than a bald patch. It often becomes more noticeable around 40 years of age.

Here are six causes of hair loss in women which can help you identify the possible cause and decide weather to just wait at the hair to regrow, or if it is a more serious reason, get professional advice and act appropriately:

#1. Hair loss in women is often connected to pregnancy. Three to six months after delivering a child, many women notice a degree of hair loss as the hair goes into a resting phase because of the physiological impact of the pregnancy on the body.

#2. A woman's body can also be greatly effected by intensive diets and loosing a lot of weight in a short period of time.

#3. Severe illnesses and infections can put great stress on the body thus triggering the hair into a resting phase which results hair shedding. Often the body recovers naturally within three to nine months and the hair begins to regrow until it almost resembles its original condition.

#4. Hair loss in women can be aggravated farther by improper use of chemical hair treatments such as dyes, tints, bleaches, straighteners, and permanent waives.

Generally, healthy hair can undergo these treatments without showing signs of stress, if they are not done too often. However, if hair is breaking or if it becomes brittle it is best to stop these procedures until the hair has grown out.

#5. The constant pulling of hair with styles such as ponytails and braids can sometimes cause hair loss in women. Avoid pulling the hair tight with these styles.

#6. Rough combing and brushing of the hair and vigorous rubbing with a towel after shampooing can cause it to break, adding farther to the problem of Hair loss in women. Wide toothed combs and brushes with smooth tips are recommended to minimize hair breakage.


Although hair loss is distressing for everyone, hair loss in women is perhaps a cause of more anxiety as it can lead to feelings of lack of confidence and femininity.

Often, proper care and attention to hair can greatly reduce the danger of hair loss.

In other cases involving illness or heredity, consulting with a professional hair stylist can result in a hair style that minimizes the affect of hair loss in women.

Pros and Cons of Choosing Dentistry Abroad

We normally don't think of holidaying while having dental treatment, but a growing trend of dental tourism has paired the two. The idea of dental tourism is spreading so quickly that a stupendous number of Americans and several other nationalities now are considering travelling to a foreign country for inexpensive dental care.

In many countries, fees for dental treatments such as dental implants, crowns and bridges and cosmetic dentistry are more than 50% less than in many European and American clinics. For many people, this can mean significant savings, especially if they don't have dental insurance because many treatments are classed as restorative and cosmetic procedures which are not covered by regular health insurance policy.

By undertaking dentistry abroad you can combine a wonderful holiday trip or relaxing period of recovery, away from the daily stress of life, with your dental treatment in one of the overseas cosmetic dental clinics which are now attracting patients from around the world.

There are several dental tourism hubs which provide affordable dentistry abroad. But the most popular destinations that see huge influx of international dental patients every year include India, Argentina, Belgium, Czech Republic, Poland, Philippines, Singapore, Mexico, Thailand, Turkey, Costa Rica and Ukraine.

The trend of having dental treatment in a foreign country is getting more and more popular nowadays. But much like other things, it too has its own advantages and disadvantages. Mentioned below are some of these ups and downs:


Undoubtedly, the biggest advantage of having dentistry abroad is enormous savings. If you are residing in a country where general and cosmetic dentistry procedures are very costly, and considering having dental treatment outside your country, you would be able to have it at fabulously lower prices abroad. Undergoing a dental treatment in any less developed country actually can save you up to 70 percent of your bill even after the cost of vacation activities and other expenses have been included.

Some international dental practices work with medical financial service companies that offer finance schemes for virtually every kind of dental treatment.

Another advantage is that several internationally trained dental experts abroad are registered with prestigious dental associations and are providing their high level of expertise in the area of dentistry at very competitive prices.

Most importantly, aftercare provided by foreign dental offices is not usually as expensive as at Westerns dental clinics.

What's more, people for whom taking a leave from the job isn't always easy can club their vacation and treatment into one trip. In short, you can have the treatment abroad during vacation time.


Despite the considerable savings one can make by having dentistry abroad, there are still disadvantages if you are going to have your dental problems fixed outside your country. These may include:

One of the main difficulties is communication because of the language difference. In some places, like in Mexico, Italy and France, people at the dentistry may not speak your language and you might face problems when visiting hospitals and dental care clinics.

Many patients may encounter problems after returning home. Rectifying the problem in your native country may eat up the 'saving' you have made by going overseas for the treatment.

Some dental treatments, such as crowns and implants, require several dental visits. Making multiple trips abroad can cost you a lot of money.

Follow-up care can also be a problem. If anything goes wrong with the treatment, it is not possible for you to get the problem rectified soon. Moreover, it is not so easy to pursue a dental malpractice claim against a dentist who is thousand miles away from your home.

Let's Talk Breast Lift-Augmentation Combination

Some of you who are interested in a breast lift augmentation, may be asking yourselves is it safe to have an augmentation and a breast lift at the same time? According to Luxxery Cosmetic Medical Boutique, the technology of breast implants and lifts has come a long way to improvement from decades ago. Plastic surgeons have enveloped newer techniques for breast lift options, as well as, "natural breast augmentation" such as lipo-transfer or fat transfer.

"Combination breast lift and augmentation is one of the most commonly requested procedures by my patients and the most routinely performed in my practice," says board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Hakki.

Dr. Hakki has no problem doing a breast enhancement and lift in the same session. He uses fat injections to achieve the ideal breast lift-augmentation for patients who are good candidates for this kind of cosmetic surgery procedure and do not desire implants. Fat transfers are meant for patients that only need up to a one-cup increase in size. Fat injections allow the breasts to be shaped by injecting fat in the necessary places, therefore creating a shapelier, perkier bust.

For 30 years, Dr. Hakki has been performing these two procedures together. Though the level of difficulty is greater, Dr. Hakki prefers to do both procedures in one session. In his experience, the results turn out great with a low risk rate. Most patients rather have the one operation mainly for the convenience, safety, and not to mention that the cost is cheaper to have the two in one approach rather than two separate surgeries.

The technique for breast lift augmentation is different for every individual. Dr. Hakki places his breast implants sub-muscular, or if he uses the fat transfer technique, he typically uses 500 cc's to the areas needed to enhance the breast size.

When breast implants or injections are not enough to lift the breast, several techniques can be used depending on the individuals needs. If the breast is hardly droopy an implant alone may be sufficient or a per-oral or crescent lift incision. If the breast needs a minor lift a Q lift or lollipop lift technique is used during the implant procedure. If the breast are completely drooping a full breast lift or inverted T technique is necessary.

If you are interested in getting a combination breast lift-augmentation, contact a board-certified plastic surgery doctor in your area and arrange a consultation at your convenience.

Sciatia: Its Causes and Treatments

Until the 1930s, doctors had many theories about what causes sciatica, a sharp, aching, and/or burning pain that affects the lower back, the buttocks, and/or the legs, but they were far from certain. At that time, though, they discovered that a great deal of sciatica pain came from the herniation, bulging, or rupturing of one or more of the cushioning discs that float between the vertebrae in the spinal column.

After about the age of twenty, these discs begin to be affected by everyday wear-and-tear, the exact amount depending on the amount of pressure and movement of the spine. It's most frequently seen in patients from thirty to fifty years of age, and the type of work a person does is a big factor. For example, repeated lifting can cause herniation followed by sciatica, and prolonged periods of sitting, such as at a computer or truck and automobile driving, can also play a role. In addition, some discs are more prone to herniate than others. The lumbar vertebrae (the lowest five) and the cervical vertebrae (those in your neck) are the most frequent culprits. Sciatica occurs when the herniated disc between the L-4 and L-5 discs presses against the sciatic nerve. This is more likely to cause a problem when the nerve is squashed between the offending disc and an adjacent bone.

When your body works right, the discs lose and then absorb a little bit of water and nutrients from the blood. Often after a person is thirty, this balanced function doesn't work as efficiently, and soon the discs are losing more water than they absorb. They dry out, and the thickness of the disc begins to shrink. This shrinking and drying out can cause the outer core to rupture, and some of the soft inner core can leak out. As we've seen before, this protrusion often presses against the sciatic nerve root, and pain can follow, although sometimes patients remain asymptomatic.

Muscle spasms from an injury or a fall can also irritate the sciatic nerve. The piranius muscle in your buttocks can become inflamed and press against the sciatic nerve and cause pain. Sciatic pain can also be caused by infections, injuries, tumors, arthritis, and ankylosing spondyltis. This is a severe inflammation of the spinal joints which then stiffen and cause agonizing pain.

How is Sciatica Treated?

If your healthcare provider is a traditional, Western medicine doctor, he will probably recommend one of a variety of conventional treatments. Medication is one of the primary treatments prescribed. The first choice is over-the-counter remedies, NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) such as aspirin, acetaminophen, ibuprofen, or naproxen, which can help reduce the pain and start to repair tissue at the same time. All of these are generally considered safe for temporary use in healthy adults.

Muscle relaxants, such as Valium®, Flexeril®, and similar medications, may also be an option. They don't actually work directly on the muscles, but they have a relaxing effect on the whole body and can be helpful for short-term use. Narcotics, such as Percodan® or Tylenol® 2, 3 or 4, are medications of last resort, when the pain cannot be controlled in any other way. The general rule is to use as little of a medication as works, and use it for the shortest time possible - generally no more than two weeks.

Bed rest is good, but only for one or two days at the most. Get up only for meals or to go to the bathroom. If after two days your pain has not improved, try something else, like physical therapy. Therapists use a number of different techniques to ease the pain. They may use hot or cold packs. Cold packs are used to help reduce swelling, while dry or moist heat rushes new blood to the injured area and helps in healing.

Only when the pain is severe and other treatments haven't worked, will doctors prescribe surgery, as it is highly invasive and carries a number of risks due to the delicate nature of the spine and its component parts.

There are also a number of alternative treatments available, such as yoga, biofeedback, massage therapy, and hypnosis. Each is non-invasive, and all are usually safe enough to try on your own if you want to go that route.

Once you have been diagnosed properly, curing sciatica, or at least reducing the pain and discomfort, can be accomplished by a number of alternative and/or traditional treatments. Make sure to ask your healthcare provider what the right treatment is for you.

Can Praise Cause Sensory Overload?

Many kids with Asperger's Syndrome experience sensory overload from embarrassment or being picked out of a crowd in some way. This is why they sometimes don't enjoy receiving an award at Assembly or Parade, or being praised for their work in class.

So does that mean we shouldn't reward them at all??? Of course not - but we have to find a way for them to feel comfortable and proud of themselves at the same time. This is where thinking outside the square for your child with Autism comes into play.

Suggestions include:-

a one-on-one meeting between the Principal and child with AS
sending the award to the Aspie child's house with a letter about why they're receiving the award
If your child is embarrassed when they're praised, or don't like to be rewarded in public, talk to their teacher or principal and find a solution that suits your child. We all know that when supporting children on the Spectrum there aren't any "one size fits all" solutions. We must try to individualise support and accommodation for each child.

During his school years our son really disliked any attention or spotlight on him at all. This led him to wanting to stay home from school every Wednesday in an effort to avoid Parade and any possibility of receiving an award. He was a fairly well-achieving student, so there was always a chance he may receive an award for work well done. Once we discovered this we met with his teachers and his Principal and we agreed that all praising would be done in private.

Another trait that puzzled us was that our Asperger child didn't "believe" praise that came from us (his parents). His reasoning was that we're his parents and we have to love him and everything he does. So when he was growing up we enlisted the help of family, friends and neighbours to ensure he "heard" praise and approval. We'd simply phone them with his achievements and successes and they'd casually drop it into conversation when they visited.

This worked for him - we could see him 'shine' with their praise and attention. Everyone deserves to have their star shine brightly sometimes!

Currently I've teamed up with a local psychologist and we've created a new program for children with Autism Spectrum conditions - the Sensory Detective Program. We've been using heart rate monitor rings on the children as they complete the program and the results of this have really amazed us both! All the things we know about Asperger's children is proven/displayed by their heart rates, which 'spike' at change, sensory input, social interaction and praise etc. So if you're unsure what calms or upsets your Asperger child, invest in a heart rate monitor ring - the results will amaze you!

Chances of Getting Pregnant

Could the position of my uterus affect my chances of getting pregnant?

Your uterus lies in the midline of your pelvis. It may be angled slightly toward your abdominal wall (anteverted) or toward your rectum (retroverted). The body of the uterus may also be angled from the plane of the cervix in either an anterior or posterior manner (anteflexion or retroflexion). Picture your forearm and hand as representing the body of your uterus and your cervix. The two parts can be aligned and tilted in a straight line, or you can bend your wrist, creating an angle between "the uterus" and "the cervix." If the uterus is mobile, there are generally no symptoms associated with the position of the uterus.

Most positional differences are anatomic variations that occur from woman to woman. Normally, the uterus is in a position of anteversion. Retroversion of the uterus may be present at birth, may be a consequence of childbirth (due to relaxation of the pelvic ligaments), or may be the result of a disease process in the pelvis.

The orientation of a woman's uterus, as determined at birth, has no relation to fertility in and of itself. In some cases, a sharp backward tilt (retroflexion) of the uterus can cause the cervix to be positioned against the anterior vaginal wall. For some couples, this prevents the cervix from being able to "bathe" in the pool of semen that naturally collects in the posterior vaginal vault after intercourse. This may prevent the sperm from swimming into the cervical canal to reach a released ovum for fertilization.

Additionally, there are certain conditions that may cause a sharp retroflexion of the uterus. These include endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease and uterine fibroids. Endometriosis can lead to scarring of the utero-sacral ligaments that may pull the uterus into a fixed retroverted position. As endometriosis can affect fertility, I think you should discuss this with your healthcare provider. Since you have been trying to conceive for the past year, it would be reasonable to undergo additional testing to help evaluate your fertility status. Then you may be able to determine whether or not the position of your uterus is related to a delay in conception.

Pregnancy can occur without penetration into the vagina. Pregnancy can also occur at various times during your cycle, particularly for women who have irregular periods. And yes, some women do experience bleeding at the time of their expected menstruation even though they are pregnant.

Intimacy of this nature can have serious consequences, including pregnancy and the spreading of sexually transmitted diseases (AIDS, herpes, gonorrhea, chlamydia, HPV, etc.). While it is unlikely that you conceived, it is possible. A pregnancy test may be reassuring.

How to Shave for a 5 O'Clock Shadow

As men, we all know that one of the best ways to attract a woman is with a good 5 o'clock shadow. Awhile back, I was actually watching a very popular TV show where a pickup artist was being interviewed. He said that women, "... love facial hair, because it's manly, and they love to touch it." Of course, if you're like me, you know that there is a fine line between having facial hair, and having out of control monkey-like fur growing all over your face. Today, I want to teach you how to shave for a 5 o'clock shadow, step-by-step.

Before we begin, you first need to be capable of having a 5 o'clock shadow, and if I'm being completely honest, some guys just can't pull it off. For me, my beard grows somewhat in patches, so I will never be able to get the best results. Therefore, the first step in shaving for a 5 o'clock shadow is determining whether or not you can have one in the first place.

1. Is a 5 o'clock shadow right for you?

Does your beard grow in patches, or does it grow full? For me, I'm somewhat in between, and am just able to pull off the 5 o'clock shadow look. Adam Levine, singer for Maroon 5, has one of the best 5 o'clock shadows that you're ever going to see. That's the first question you need to ask yourself. Are you capable of pulling this off?

2. Find the right grooming tool for your beard.

There are so many products available. The key is to find a product that has received great reviews. Once you've found an electric shaver with good reviews, you're going to want to be sure that it comes with the proper attachments. Most shavers come with a length setting of '1,' '2,' and '3'. Depending on how noticeable you want your shadow to be, you're going to want to choose the proper length setting.

3. Choose the proper length setting for your beard.

The higher the number, the longer your hairs are going to be, and the more your shadow will show. If you have a really patchy beard, I recommend choosing a higher number, as this will create a full, 5 o'clock shadow look. If you have a full beard, which means that you have more hairs per square inch, then feel free to choose a smaller number.

4. Shave gently, before you shower.

With an electric razor, you always want to shave dry, and shave gently. That's why I recommend choosing a good brand razor. Once you've shaved, you can take a shower, wash your face, and if necessary, apply any topical acne treatment that you may be using.

EMS IV Kit Equipment: The Importance of Portable IV Warmers

Hypothermia occurs when the core body temperature falls below 95°F. In many cases, the condition occurs gradually due to exposure to cold weather, but it can also occur almost instantaneously when a person receives a cold IV fluid infusion. According to research, in 2010, the majority of IV infusions that were delivered in hospitals and Emergency Medical Service (EMS) vehicles were delivered cold. When a hospital unit or an EMS IV kit does not contain a portable IV warmer, hospital patients and injury victims are likely to experience one of the following hypothermia related complications.

Hospital-Acquired Infections

In the immune system, hypothermia impairs neutrophil and microphage function, and increases the occurrence of hospital-acquired infections, particularly bacterial wound infections. Administering warm IV fluids during and after surgery helps prevent infection.

Cardiac Arrest

Hypothermia increases the risk of cardiac arrest by creating: systemic and pulmonary vasoconstriction, increasing arterial blood pressure, and increasing the risk of ventricular dysrhythmias and myocardial ischaema. Research has shown that giving warm IV infusions to hypothermic patients helps prevent postoperative cardiac arrest, which can occur due to the cooling effect that anesthesia has on the body.

Increased Oxygen Consumption

In the final stage of hypothermia, oxygen consumption slows due to organ failure, but in the initial stage, oxygen consumption increases due to shivering and tachycardia (accelerated heart beat). These responses occur automatically as the body attempts to generate heat. Tachycardia can be dangerous for those who have serious heart conditions, and intense shivering makes it difficult for a person to assist himself or herself by performing basic physical tasks.


When hypothermia progresses to the point of contracting surface blood vessels and decreasing the heart rate, the person may fall into a coma. The contraction of surface blood vessels occurs in moderate hypothermia; while decreased heart rate is a sign of severe hypothermia. If the patient remains in a severe state of hypothermia, he or she will lapse into a coma and die due to organ failure. An EMS IV kit that contains a portable IV warmer will help prevent this from happening by raising the core body temperature of the person via a warm IV fluid infusion.

Impaired Coagulation

Hypothermia impairs coagulation function by affecting platelet function, coagulation cascade, and fibrinolysis. Platelet function is impaired due to reduced levels of thromboxane B2 near the injury; coagulation cascade is reduced because the enzymes that are required for the cascade are temperature dependent; fibrinolysis is increased, which destabilizes the clot and causes increased bleeding. Because hypothermia is often thought to "slowing down" the body's functions, it is mistakenly thought to have a positive effect on coagulation, but the opposite is true. When injury victims bleed to death, primary or secondary hypothermia may be a contributing factor.


An EMS IV kit that contains an IV fluid infusion system for warming IV fluids helps prevent dangerous side-effects of hypothermia, including: hospital-acquired infections, cardiac arrest, increased oxygen consumption, coma, and impaired coagulation. For more information about preventing hypothermia with warm IV fluids, contact a supplier of IV warmers today.

4 Proven Ways to Relieve Arthritis Pain

Arthritis is a condition that affects millions around the world. It strikes anybody, regardless of your age and gender. There are about 200 types of arthritis with osteoarthritis being the most common among affected individuals. Rheumatoid arthritis is the 2nd most common form of arthritis. There is presently no cure for arthritis. However, it is possible to relieve the symptoms by using these 4 proven ways.

1. Lose Weight

If you are fat, I would suggest that you start losing some weight to reduce the pressure on your weight-bearing joints like your knees and hips. There are many ways to lose weight. However, the most effective way to lose weight is by controlling your diet. Reduce your carbohydrate intake, and take more fruits and vegetables.

Fruits and vegetables contain a lot of fibre which will make you feel full faster. Besides that, it contains a lot of beneficial vitamins like antioxidants, along with minerals which can help reduce joint inflammations.

The main reason behind your weight gain is due to excessive carbohydrate intake. When there are excessive carbohydrates in your body which are not burned to provide energy, they will be converted to fats which are deposited on your body, resulting in weight gain. This explains why limiting your carbohydrate intake is the key to successful weight loss.

2. Exercise

Most arthritis patients are afraid to exercise due to their fear of sustaining injuries. However, studies have shown that simple flexibility exercises can be very good for maintaining joint function and preventing muscle wastage due to inactivity.

So, what are flexibility exercises? They are simple stretching exercises that can be performed without the supervision of healthcare professionals. Therefore, you can do them at the comfort of your home and at any time of the day.

In fact, it is highly recommended for you to do them before and after any physical exercise sessions to reduce the odds of getting an injury while exercising.

3. Diet

The Arthritic Association recommends a diet rich in whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and natural products for arthritis patients. Therefore, try to include these food items as much as possible in your diet to reduce your arthritic symptoms.

Consider supplementing your diet with arthritis supplements like Provailen because it helps to fill the nutritional gap in your diet and ensure that your joints are well-nourished.

Avoid taking food items like chocolates, spices, herbs and diary products because they tend to aggravate your condition.

4. Rest

Having adequate rest is important for your overall health. Getting a good sleep of 7 to 8 hours daily will ensure that your joints are well rested and reduce any form of inflammation.
