Ask the doc­tor

breasts and keep them firm. As for the con­stant up­per air­way ir­ri­ta­tion you now have, it is not enough to sim­ply write you a pre­scrip­tion for med­i­ca­tions be­cause you could be suf­fer­ing from an al­ler­gic con­di­tion. You may also be grow­ing some kind of polyp in the nose. In or­der to de­ter­mine which one you suf­fer from, you will need to see an ear, nose and throat sur­geon for the proper di­ag­no­sis and treat­ment.

I do not be­lieve you have any prob­lem that is mys­te­ri­ous. The bal­le­rina tea and combo you are tak­ing are not re­spon­si­ble for the pe­ri­ods that have failed to come. Those are nat­u­rally oc­cur­ring food sup­ple­ments or ad­di­tives which should do you no harm. How­ever, your boyfriend’s ejac­u­la­tion of se­men could still get you preg­nant even without pen­e­tra­tive sex. The feel­ings you have clearly sug­gest that some­thing is grow­ing in your lower ab­domen. It could be a baby judg­ing from the fact that there is move­ment and your pe­ri­ods have ceased. It could also be a fi­broid which can move, cause you pain or dis­com­fort in the lower ab­domen but that should cause your pe­ri­ods to be­come heav­ier, not stop it. I sug­gest you see a doc­tor for proper ex­am­i­na­tion and ad­vice. The even­tual an­swer you get will de­ter­mine what you need to do to en­sure that your pe­riod re­sumes. Good luck.

Well, first of all, I want to con­grat­u­late you for stepping up to have the rel­e­vant treat­ment. How­ever, pe­ri­anal fis­tu­lae are not easy to treat. The rate of re­cur­rence is high and the com­pli­ca­tions from the op­er­a­tion can be de­press­ing some­times. What you should do is to go back to the hos­pi­tal where you had the op­er­a­tion for some fur­ther assess­ment and the ini­ti­a­tion of an­other plan of treat­ment.

I be­lieve that what you ex­pe­ri­ence is partly psy­cho­log­i­cal and partly phys­i­cal. Per­haps, while grow­ing up, you have been in­un­dated with sto­ries from your mother or grand­mother re­gard­ing how sex is bad and

The con­sump­tion of nuts in gen­eral is good for your health. It is ir­rel­e­vant whether this is ground­nuts or cashew nuts or al­mond nuts or wal­nuts; they are all nuts ex­tremely rich in Omega oils and other an­tiox­i­dants which are very good for you. Nuts are such a rec­om­mended part of the nor­mal diet that in some cul­tures among the tra­di­tional tribes of the An­des Moun­tains who have ex­cel­lent heart health, its omis­sion from the nor­mal cui­sine is al­most anath­ema. The choles­terol story in re­la­tion to ground­nuts is fake news.

I tend to agree with the doc­tor who saw you in Sierra Leone and con­cur that you have chronic si­nusi­tis. How­ever, an an­tibi­otic like Ery­thromycin is not suf­fi­ciently po­tent for an in­fec­tion of this na­ture and it is not clear how long you used it. There are more spe­cialised an­tibi­otics that pen­e­trate bone bet­ter which are of more cer­tain ap­pli­ca­tion in in­fec­tions of this na­ture and that is what your doc­tor should be pre­scrib­ing. How­ever, if you now hap­pen to be in Nige­ria, judg­ing from your num­ber, you could see an ear, nose and throat sur­geon for a con­fir­ma­tion of this di­ag­no­sis and the even­tual treat­ment.
