Hi I'm 29 year old. I'm in a relationship since 3 years now. I never had an UTI untill met my present partner. Since we started being sexually active I started to get UTI. Very often. Each month or basically after sexual contact. I blamed myself for 2 years untill January 2012 when he stopped smoking weed, what was his habit to have before going to bed each day till January 2012. When he stopped from jan till June I was ok. No more UTI no more visits to the GP:). My partner smoked again in June and recently starts to smoke again. My problem came back. Recently i was on antibiotics twice in 5 weeks!!! And prior that one time antibiotics didnt work and I had to repeat the course. I see a link between his habit and my painful problem but no one believes me. I eat well, don't drink, don't smoke. I addition i need to say that my partner has got a close relative who had a stroke at the age of 50. Question: what should I do? Can weed really be affecting me? Is my partner at risk of having a stroke if continious smoking? Thank you for your help. C.

I have had my period for two years after the depo and that was supposedly supposed to only be in my system for 3 to 6 months the doctors say that I can take these pills but it is a blood clotting pill and I had a stroke when i was 4 I am 15 and I dont know how to stop it I am going to a gynecologist about it too but can I get some tips and reasons why my body could react this way
I have a blood disorder which makes me prone to developing blood clots.. For this reason I have cerezette the progesterone only pill.. Safe for ppl such as u an me...I too tried depo injection and was on a period for about a year... My twin sister was the same... The pill is only thing I can recommend and hopefully the depo will work it's way out ur system... Strange because it's not meant to cover you for pregnancy for that long yet affects you in other ways x

Dear Doctors, I'm a 63 year old male,I have recently noticed,when I ejaculate. although I orgasm there is a great reduction of semen. Can this be improved.I eat plenty of salads and lots of various fruits. I suffered a stroke 3 years ago and a further 2 mini strokes.Leaving me with just a nearly useless right hand. Regards Will
Im 18 years old and i have been on the depo contraeptive injection for nearly a year,this is my last option due to stroke side effects on other methods... I am sufferring from large (scary) amounts of bleding after sex and even foreplay and it is very embarrising and uncomortable. I have come of the injection as my estrogen levels are 63 instead of the average 300. Nothing is helping the matter. What else can i do?
i have the same problem and i dont know what to do about it my bleedin has been happenin for over a year
i have the same problem i have been on the injection on and off for just over 5 years and only just have i started to bleed after sex or foreplay or masterbation, im getting quite worried as wasnt sure if this is normal but kinda glad im not the only one, it doesnt hurt me at all and i have heard through certain websites that other women do experience this but it does seem odd, its only been happening to me since my last injection
