Your Doctor May Be Wrong – Comprehensive Health Information & Examples

18 Mar

trust me I'm a doctorYour doctor is a medical professional that you are supposed to trust, right? After all, they are someone with years of training, countless patient hours, and sleepless nights through medical school just to make the grade (one hopes). They have dedicated their life to finding a cure, bandaging bruises, mending broken bones, and ensuring that our reproductive health is top-notch.

Hundreds of commercials each week urge people to “talk to your doctor about [insert product here]”. The general public takes this medical advice, these medications, and hopes that the medical professionals know best.  

But, is it safe to assume that a doctor’s advice is infallible?

Ask An Educator: Vaginal Dryness

26 Sep

“What can I use for a dry vagina?”

sliquid satinVaginal dryness can occur for any number of reasons – menopause, chemotherapy, diet, etc. It can be incredibly uncomfortable but you need not just live with it. There are a few wonderful moisturizing lubricants on the market that are specifically meant for every day use. The one we recommend most is Sliquid Satin. It is formulated with nourishing aloe and carrageenan to help alleviate dryness and keep vaginal tissues supple. Satin can be used daily as a personal moisturizer and can also be used as a sexual lubricant.

In addition to a daily moisturizing lubricant, make sure you are drinking plenty of water and take a look at any meds you might be taking. Antihistamines are notorious for drying out the body as are certain types of antidepressants. If you have concerns about the effects of any meds, talk to your doctor. 

Ask An Educator: Discreet First Time Toy

25 Sep

 “I am 19 and a virgin. I love to masturbate and am kind of over rubbing my clit. I want to try a sex toy but don’t know what to get. I also need something discreet because I live at home. HELP!”

tickle your fancyNavigating the world of sex toys can be really difficult, especially if you have never owned one before. There are so many types that it can be difficult to know what to get. From your question, it seems as if you are primarily focusing on clitoral stimulation so a toy like the Tango could be great for you. It’s a discreet external vibrator that looks like lipstick. It has several intensities of vibration which is key because, since you have never used a toy before, you don’t know what kind of vibration your body will best respond to. It also has pulsation modes which vary the pattern of vibration which can be helpful if you find that constant vibration or rubbing of the clitoris makes you a bit numb. The best thing about this toy – it is nearly silent and it’s rechargeable so you can use it without everyone knowing it!

Another thing I would suggest is invest in a good lube like Sliquid Oceanics. You mentioned that you feel like you are “over rubbing” your clit and that can certainly happen if you are masturbating without lube. A good lubricant can entirely change the feel of masturbation (either with a hand or with a toy) and prevent any unwanted friction. If you don’t want the labeled bottle lying around, go to the Container Store and pick out a pretty pump bottle and no one will know what’s in it! 😉
