    Im 19 and have been on birth control pills since i was 15. My periods are so painful that sometimes I skip my sugar pill week and go directly into a new month. Will this have any negative effects on my reproductive health? and will birth control for long periods of time really make it harder for me to get pregnant in the future?

      Is it normal to feel unable to retain basic short term memories like 4 sequence numbers and names? Can exhaustion and stress contribute to that?

        Every few months I get an intense muscle strain/contraction that leaves me feeling crippled for weeks. I've been to many doctors and they always prescribe physiotherapy and pain meds/muscle relaxants. None of it seems to be a long-term cure. I'm only 20 years old and this really bothers me, do you have any advice for me?

                  Misha, I think I have something that is referred to as a Geographic Tongue. My tongue hurts and becomes sensitive sometimes even for hours after eating sour food. I can't seem to find a legit cause and I don't know if I can even do anything about it, I've had it for as long as I can remember. Maybe you can suggest something?

                                              Hi doctor Mike I was wondering if you have any advice on controlling acne/breakouts!? I was recommended by a dermatologist to go on birth control 4 years ago which has improved it significantly(aside from the occasional pimple from my period). I wash my face and moisturize every day (my skin care routine is literally my life). But just as I was used to having clear skin I started getting breakouts again a mix of black and white head blemishes. I read an article online that my diet could be affecting it and wanted to know if you have any suggestions?

                                                So wait. Is being able to pop your joints over and over, or feeling discomfort until you pop them abnormal or unhealthy?
