I gather that you want help for managing obesity. First thing you need to ensure is that your blood sugar remains under check. Eat lots of fibres, avoid fatty food. Exercise daily. If you are morbidly obese, ypu may go for bariatric surgery to reduce weight.

Most likely not, unless your friend has it, get an HIV test done after 3 months. When passions flow you cannot control the sexual urges, and sex between 2 consenting adults is not medically wrong, so do not feel guilty.

One of the most common causes of vulvovaginitis is candida albicans. This yeast infection can cause genital itching and a thick, white vaginal discharge that is similar to cottage cheese. A yeast infection often follows the use of antibiotics. Antibiotics can kill the antifungal bacteria that normally live in the vagina. This can lead to a yeast infection.
