Its package is available, details as per below;;-- --there will be no need or little need of other therapies ------------------------------------------ --curative treatment;- it will be the future medicine of cancer for the whole suffering world. -tibetan therapy--medicine -cancero - course is the best treatment available so for, with almost 100%--results. It is a newly entrant in the field of oral medical cancer therapy, and is available with very few tibetan experts only. Most of doctors are still unaware of its use. With no side effects, it can be used both as preventive as well as curative in all types of cancers/ tumors. Its 6 month course or so is sufficient to cure cancer of any type, at any stage, provided the patient is able to take medicines orally. It converts cancers into tumors and then cures. It can be used alone or in combination with other therapies, if cancer is in advanced stage. It has been successfully used in children as small as 6 months age and old persons -73 years old. -its pack is available in 3 forms;- -cancero-th+, cancero-thu+, cancero-thua+ -cancero-th pack is available @ rs 5000/- pm.

On 5th november, my boyfriend masturbated, wiped his hands thoroughly with tissue after an orgasm and fingered me about 20 minutes later. He said his hands were completely dry. My last period was on 18th october. Is there any chance I could be pregnant? I have irregular periods, and have been pretty stressed out for the past 2 weeks because of final exams and excessive traveling. I have some cramps and feel a bit nauseous. Also, I have not been exercising for the past month while I used to do so every day. I used to have polycystic ovaries. Thank you.
