She's offering up her services and knowledge as a gyno.

Think of it as a virtual "dear abby"

So, ya got anything else to contribute to the thread? ;)

No specific questions, yet. My oldest daughter is 9 and the next in line is 6. Not sure what they are picking up in school. I periodically try to inquire how much knowledge they have without pushing too hard.

A couple of months ago I heard a very alarming article on the evening news/today show regarding a potential epidemic of STDs among teens. I can't remember the details other than it scared the living daylights out of me.

Three daughters who are going to have to learn from mistakes. Not sure the dog and I can handle that, well.

I used to be on the pill. I got off it due to it making me feel crazy and lack of sex drive. This was about 9-10 years ago. Are the pills better now? Do you suggest certain pills that are better than others? (I was actually thinking about this this morning, thanks for the prompt).

Well, I sure made you talk! But seriously, after that thread on "How often do you pee?" to which nobody seemed offended, I thought I could at least provide some useful info! I'll attend to it when I have time. I actually go to work too!

Is it true that "the pill" uses hormones to trick a woman's body into thinking it's in the very beginning stage of pregnancy, and that's why it prevents any "new" pregnancies?
And if it is, I had heard that because the pill keeps a woman in this beginning stage of false pregnancy, that her body starts gearing up for milk production, but never actually goes into it, and this is a major contributing factor in breast cancer?
Is this true? It is something that my wife and I were told when we were going through our catholic marriage prep course. It was part of the Family planning portion.

well, i was told one time that all the pill does is prevent the egg from going through the tubes, thus preventing a period. and that when you are off the pill, they all come out at once! is THAT true?!?!?!

Dang, free medical advice. Nice. Can't say that I have a question for an OB/GYN but my uvula has been swollen lately and that's been nothing but a hassle.

It would be very unusual for young preteens to be exposed to STD's. At that age, it's child abuse, not consensual sex, and I sure hope there are very few sexual predators in our schools. When hormones kick in, as young as 11 for girls and 13 for boys, the only thing we can do for our children is to educate them as best we can.
