    First of all, I hope, I really hope you don't get OCD about checking your rectum for crap chunks, because it will seriously inflame your hemorrhoids!I think the presence of chunks is totally random from person to person, depending on their own natural cycle of going. Some people have several BM's a day, some only one, some once every few days. Regardless of actual 'chunks' being present, the bacteria which is dangerous if injested is pretty much always there, e. coli.I would say good rule of thumb, handwashing or penis washing, or whatever you want to put in there washing is always a good idea. And for salad tossing, make sure the area is somewhat cleaned up before starting. Although I would also guess that some people react to e. coli exposure much more strongly, such as children or older people due to decreased immunity possibilities.But still, stop worrying about it!K

    Well, to help you all with your diagnosis, the pilonidal cyst is usually right at the tip of the tailbone area. Yes, technically, the anus is between the cheeks, but so is a whole lot of other area there...Zits would be anywhere else.So, where is it?K

    Having had a different species of worms myself several times in my life, I will tell you that the medication for worms here in the states is not available over the counter.There should be some sort of low-cost option for you to go to the doctor, maybe not without a lot of hassle, but it is there. Otherwise, you could expedite the whole affair by just booking an appointment with a doctor and take (eeks) a stool sample with you.This is easily accomplished by using some disposable plastic container such as an empty butter dish. This is essential since diagnosis is by stool and ova culture, something that shows exactly which variety you have, since there are so many.The way that you said you think you got it only works if you are working with the feces or intestines of animals, eaten infected meat or fish. There are many varieties though, such as pinworms and hookworms. Pinworms can be easily obtained from your pet... They have them, they put out a few eggs at night on your bed, wa-la... The way to see if you have that one is scotch tape at the anus at night. The adult worms actually leave the anus at night, lay the eggs outside the body, then wriggle back in. Symptoms are itching and wriggly feelings at night...Hookworms go thru the bottoms of your feet while walking barefoot, then get into your bloodstream, into the lungs, coughed up into the sputum, then swallowed into the gut, where they live and lay eggs... Needless to say, you really want to have the stool and ova culture done and get the med from the doctor.My love, Helms loved to try to tell me 'no way' on some of the above, but believe me, the thorough research paper I did in nursing school way over 20 years ago was information that is timely and unchanging since...Now, don'cha wanna go give a stool sample!K

    Helms turned me to the forum in my xmas shopping frenzy....I do think all of this is normal, and possibly coincidental to your first explorations.Orgasm produces many hormones, not sure which and to what extent light explorations and masturbation play also causes those or other hormones to release... However, nipple pain could also be related to what day in your menstrual cycle you are in. All in all, I am sure it is NBD and will probably be short lived.Masturbation is something I came to (lol) later in life, but what I do know is electronics help!K

    okay, so if she starts to bleed real hard, It doesn't mean that she lost the baby??Not necessarily... but she does need it checked, to make sure everything is working okay?If she starts to bleed that much, yes. If not, everything is probably fine, like they said.Yes, I am excited. I can't believe it has been a whole year either! We are going sailing on Sunday, a great day!K

    Ya, but, as we all know, we are all sooooo different.I, being a labor and delivery nurse for almost 20 years (as in I IS the expert in vaginas) can tell you that there is as many sizes of vaginal canals as there are fish in the sea. The same is true for penis' (or is it penii??).Personally, the idea of you being tense and feeling like you need to have sex even though it is uncomfortable seems just plain uncomfortable to me. Sex should be accompanied by so much foreplay that somehow the vagina is more readied for the insertion, hymen or not...

    It can be non existent in some girls even with no tampons... Many things, even genetics can play a part. I also have heard that things like riding a horse or a bicycle can make it seem gone.Whatever she is thinking, you need to control what you are thinking...

    Are you in a city with a Planned Parenthood?? Sometimes they have late hours. Otherwise, try to find a doctor or clinic that keeps late hours, some do...I think probably nothing is deathly wrong (Helms was being protective...) But if it is buggin' you that much, do get it checked out. It will make you feel better.K

    The internet is a wonder for research~!Back in the old days, if you wondered something like that out of boredom, one never learned a thing... One would just go on wondering, or maybe lose themselves in a morass of card files, referenced magazine catalogs and stacks of old magazines...Now, we have the internet... My previous knowledge made me think of the names of the 1970's researchers on sex...Masters and Johnson....Google them sister~http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Masters_and_JohnsonBetter yet, google sex research... Hey, how old are you???;-^)

    Thanks for bringing this to my attention~

    There are actually many reasons for a bit of a bleed early in pregnancy, and rarely, throughout pregnancy.

    Mostly, in early pregnancy, spotting is not uncommon. As long as it is only spots, and that it stops it should not be a sign of a problem. Any saturating of pads or pain (cramping) is more of a problem sign. However, many times the pregnancy does not end in miscarriage every time there is heavy bleeding, sometimes the bleeding resolves and the pregnancy continues.

    Does this help?

    P.S. Helms' and my 1st Anniversary is in 2 days!
