Q. Is it ok not to want children?

I am 33, and I know my bio clock is ticking, but I just don't want to have a child. At least not yet. Is there something wrong with me?
A1I agree with fatman, that's totally your decision.
If you feel that you're not ready yet, better to wait until you're more ready for that. Because having children is another big responsibility, and you will feel guilty if -for the sake of your age- you push yourself to have child, then morally you are not welcoming that child.
A2If you don't want kids yet there is nothing wrong with you. You are perfectly normal. Like the folks have said above, there is no perfect time to have kids. There is a sense of needing financial stability before having a child and a partner so that the child has a supportive set of parents.

Otherwise, you are fine. I caution though that as women get older, the complications during child birth increase and although there are 50, 60 and 70 year old women giving birth, it is with help from medications and usually leads a bearing twins and sometimes even more, which will stress you out a lot!

Children are a lot of work, I have a 3 year old and she is a hand full, but I wouldn't have it any other way. She is AMAZING and everything I do I do for her. It's a great feeling.
A3a good friend of mine used to be what you call a 'Career Woman'. She really didn't care much for babys but she got pregnant because her husband kept pushing her that he doesnt want to be an old daddy. you should see her now - after leaving the twins with a nanny for 2 months and going back to work she decided what she really wanted was to spend more time with them. now she is a stay-at-home mom and she loves every second of it. So, take into account that your feelings towards having a child may very well change once you are pregnant, or after he/she is born. you can never know...

Q. What are some ways to get an erection? Libido and sperm are OK.

I have had a problem with depression for years. I have always had a strong libido and I find that my ED has been a factor in my depression. Sexual relationships have helped me deal with my depression. What a MIRACLE! How can something so good be a remedy for mental problems. Oh! for a good stiff dick. I have considered a penile prosthesis implant but I'm still hoping for something better. Any information that might help would be greatly appreciated and I will remember you in my dreams and fantasies(sexual)for you ladies and I'll thank you studs. John
A1I am a female but my husband likes to think about a womans vagina. So maybe you should get a fake vagina try Adameve.com. And also try lubricants and other things, think about what turns you on.
A2i recommend seeing a specialist about it. being unable to achieve erection can be a symptom for a lot of things. do you have diabetes? kidney problems? maybe one of the medication you are taking (any antidepressant?), could be a lot of things. so i would go for professional help on this one. and i'm a man- so you can keep me out of your dreams...please... :)

Q. is it ok to use drugs for medical reasons? and who is to decide when is necessary to use drugs when needed?

AToday the most used "medical" drugs are narcotics- for pain relief, for patients who suffer extreme pain. All sorts of Codaine and Morphine types are used and on a very wide basis, and they are specially perscribed for ones who need them.

Q. is it ok, health wise, taking sleeping pills during a flight?

A1Depending on your age, risk factors and length of the flight a sleeping pill may increase your risk of developing blood clots in your legs because of you sitting in the same position all of the time. This risk is still relatively low depending on your individual situation. However, during long flights it may be a good idea to get up and stretch your legs by walking around a little.
A2It is fine to take sleeping pills during flights, especially longer flights, but if you are not used to taking them you should start with a very low dose as they can knock you out pretty easily... You should consult a doctor on the exact type and dose you should take.

Q. hello guys !!! what sport is recommended to do during pregnancy? is it ok to have sex? health wise?? :)

APhysical activity is always recommended, also during pregnancy, however, if you were not a great athlete prior to being pregnant it is advised you start with mellow activity such as walking or swimming a few times a week, and not exert yourself too much. For women who are used to exercising - there is no problem with continuing to do so during pregnancy. Unless you are in a high risk pregnancy there is no problem with having sex, however, sometimes if the placenta is set too low in the uterous, there might be some bleeding after sex.
