Q. I would like to know the best age for pregnancy?

Hi I am Deontae; I got married before 1 year. I and my wife planned to have a baby after 3 years. But now she is 25. I would like to know the best age for pregnancy? Which will help us to change our plan?
Aactually there is no best age for pregnancy (as far as i know), but some studies and research had shown that after 35 years old, a pregnancy is categorized as high risk, because there are some abnormalities and labor complication that are tend to happened (statistically) along with the increase of mother's age (such as: down syndrome, genetic disorder, post-partum bleeding, miscarriage, etc.)

so if your wife is now 25, i think you guys still have another 5-10 years to "accomplish" your family plan, hehehe...
Good luck, and stay healthy always..

Q. when is the most common age to get any kind of cancer? is there is such age?

Ano, not really. but i guess the older you get the older something can pop out. the cells are dividing and multiplying all of our life, and cancer can occur because of mutation happened in the cells.

Q. Does eyesight always decrease with age?

I am 45 years old and never had glasses. All my friends are starting to wear reading glasses. Should I expect this too?
A1This is what usually happens; your eyesight deteriorates as you get older. Here is a link to a few things you can do in order to protect your eyesight:

A2Here is an interesting link for an explanation on this subject:

A3Yes, eye sight does deteriorate with age, and most adults need reading glasses to help them see things from close-by, around the age of 50, if they did not need glasses before. The lens also grows more foggy and that's what causes cataracts, which is nowadays easily to be removed by a procedure.

Q. At what age can alcoholism begin?

My son is 13. He drinks too much. every day he drinks, sometimes more than one time each day. can it be alcoholism already, so young? what can I do to stop this?
A1I agree with all the answers that have been given to you, stop being a friend & start being a parent, thats a start, getting him in somewhere before it's too late is the second step, you don't it will only get worse, pretending the talk will do it, no way it won't, no matter what in the end he will thank you & always be your son & friend but you as the parent have to get him professional help now, I wouldn't wait.

A2Just wanted to let you guys know that my son and I just had a very serious talk. gotta go now, will keep you updated soon
A3I don't care how it may seem or how it feels but you need to get him into long term treatment now, my nephew died & there was no need for it, it hurts, it's painful & yes it down right stinks, but no matter what his need is far more than you can give him at this point, if you don't you might lose him after all in the end & I didn't like the ending we wound up with. Please please I know it hurts, I know you love him, but love him enough to get him into treatment incare not being able to come home is rough but it will be better in the long run & you as well during this time need to get into a group to help you understand what is happening with him & what he is battling. I hope this doesn't sound cruel, but if it does & it saves him more power to be then. We lost our battle please fight & win yours. Donna

Q. What age does eye sight stabilizes?

I was just wondering at what age does your eye sight usually level off and stop getting worse? Any ideas much appreciated!
A1It will stabilize in a few years-age of 26-27.That is the average age people perform lasik surgery.
It is also the age the eye is fully grown.
Don't worry it will not get much worse maybe about -0,75.
Take care
A2Problems of refraction (the optics of the eye that enables us to see sharp image of the world), which are the main cause for eyesight problems in young healthy people usually stabilize around mid-20s, although the eyeball size (which cause the problems in refractoriness) may increase until age 30 (I have a friend that started wearing glasses when he was 29!).

Q. What age you would recommend getting pregnant?

I am 20 years old in and have completed only half a year of my graduation. But I got married last week. I have 2 more years to complete my graduation. My hubby’s family is forcing us to have a baby soon. But I clearly told him that I am not interested in having a baby so soon as I am just into my 20s and have barely started on my graduation. If I postpone our idea of having a child after 2 years, will it affect my health? I am in a dilemma whether I should satisfy my family or sacrifice my academic freedom. So please help me with your experience to know at what age you would recommend getting pregnant?
ADear Maya, I think the best time for pregnancy is when you are ready to have a child. I had my first baby at 21, my second at 30 and the twins at 34. All were vastly different experiences. I handled my pregnancy easily when I was in my twenties but I had morning sickness all the time plus many miscarriages. My second pregnancy was really easy and he was such a good baby. The twins, double trouble from the word go and I am still tired after 7 years. So don’t worry, be frank with your husband about what you feel. Discuss this with his family too.
