Hello, I'm a 30 yr old female in a long term relationship. I've recently noticed that when I swallow my boyfriend's semen, I have liquid diarrhea a few hours later. I had this with the boyfriend before him too but not before them. I am worried my upset stomach may be a warning about a potential allergy to semen and therefore an inability conceive. I've had a look online and can see I'm not the only one who has this problem but there are no solutions apart from "don't swallow..."
I believe that I have a anal fistula, however, I would describe the small opening to be more just beneath the end of my spine that around my anal opening. I have what seems to be a hard mass above the fistula. This mass can be painfull. If I press it blood and a very pale fluid can come out from the fistula. The amount of blood can be quite a lot. Is this normal with a fistula? I am seeing my GP next week but I am worried that fistulas typically need surgery to heal them. I am worried about the treatment cutting the muscles in the rectum and this leading to an inability to control my bowels. I am only 24 so this could be difficult to live with. I have private medical cover - are there alternative ways to fix fistulas?
i had the same thing and had to have an op to put it right ,get it seen to sooner rather than later.
Thanks, I went to the doctor who put me on anti biotics (that I was allergic to!) and a cream for the cist. He said I actually have three very small openings. He suspects they all lead to this cist which is discharging. The cist seems to have gone down with the cream but the doctor said they would not operate on the openings as thy were so small. Should I just accept this or should some further investigation be done to find our where they lead to?
My 6 1/2 year old son has recently been having assessments in school due to what we thought we development issues. He is one of a non-identical twin and being August children myself and teachers thought he's just catch up. To some extent he has done incredibly well, there's not a great deal of difference in the quality of work between him and his brother althouhh, things like poor pencil grip and inability to concerntrate came to attention over the last few months. As a result of this, an occupational therapist has been involved and many many assessments have been take including the "Connor's test" which has sugested that he is on the Autisitic spectrum. Obviously I've found this difficult to digest given he is very bright, knowledgable and quick although has difficulty in putting things down on paper. My main concern is that this has come to light in his final few weeks at Infant school and will be moving to Junior school very shortly where I am told the headteacher is not particularly supportive. I have been told we will be referred to CAHMS, i'm just wondering what support is available to parent's and how I can further assist my child?
Hi.... I just wanted to offer you some words of support - my 6 year old son was diagnosed with aspergers syndrome over 2 years ago, the summer before he started school. At that time the bottom of our world fell away and i was left so worried about his future. We were awarded 15 hours a week classroom support for my son and he has now just moved up into year 2. He copes extremely well in a mainstream school and despite him finding somethings quite difficult to do e.g writing as pencil grip is weak he tries his absolute best in every way. He is funny and popular and his classmates seem to understand when he needs that little bit of time out away from the hussle and bussle. I havent received any real support but i am aware that there are some support groups out there - if you go on the national autistic website there may be a group near you. Unfortunately the one near to us closed down. Hope this has helped a little.
I know you're probably going through the process now (albeit very slowly),but things seem to depend heavily on your local education authority alongside your primary care trust. From personal experience (I have two sons, both very different but both on the autistic spectrum), the medical side seems to assess and process your child (it is that heartless and clinical unfortunately), much faster than it takes the local education authority to pull their finger out. All I want to say to you is; write things down, meetings with God knows how many 'professionals' is not only daunting but emotionally exhausting when all you seem to be doing is dwelling on what your child can't do. That said, they have a legal obligation to EDUCATE your child and NOT sit them at their own workspace in front of a board filled with laminated symbols so as to fulfil their 'social inclusion' criterion and simultaneously prevent your child from interacting and disrupting the class. My lads are in advance of their peers in some areas but well behing in others. Things will get better but grit your teeth for many more meetings and repeating yourself ad nauseum. The NAS is brilliant for info and some American links are quite useful (the 'blame the upbringing' consensus doesn't apply so much here). I wish I could offer you more help but with cutbacks and everything, if your child presents as physically healthy, respite care and support from social services simply is not there (in Oldham where I am anyway).
My girlfriend and I have recently started having sex together. Due to my inability to ejaculate while using a condom, and my girlfriend's persistence that she wants me to, we decided that we would start having sex without a condom (and she insisted that I release inside her). The morning after, she complained about burning and swelling, and went to see her doctor. The results came back, and they said that she has HSPH. She is very disheartened by this, because she knows that I'm unable to ejaculate when using a condom, and I'm very worried about hurting her! We don't have any desire to conceive children at the moment, so not being able to release inside her is not a concern of ours. So would I be correct in saying that if I pull out before I ejaculate, the risks of her suffering symptoms will be very low (even with the low amounts of pre-come released during intercourse)? I've found some of the information on this website very informative, thank you! While I've been researching this for us, I've also read that possible ways to reduce symptoms would be for my to be well hydrated (to dilute the semen), and to try and lower my body's acidity levels. I've also briefly read about a possible treatment called "Intravaginal Seminal Graded Challenge", which sounds like it works on building up an immunity to the semen? However, it was a brief article, so I'm not fully aware of how it works, and its validity etc... Feedback will be greatly appreciated! Thank you
It depends on how severe her reactions are and how sensitive her allergy is. I have HSPH and am just as effected by pre-ejaculate as I am by the full amount.
