Can you get vaginal yeast infection by wearing G-strings?
Yes, but this is not the only reason. “Wrong” underwear, regardless of the type, can easily promote growth of Candida fungus that causes the symptoms of aforementioned disease. The problem is not the shape of underwear but the material. If underwear does not dry easily and holds up moisture, it creates a perfect environment for propagation of microorganisms. Forget about praised cotton and cheap synthetics and choose microfiber. Pay attention to the clothes you wear on top of your underwear. Do not wear tights in hot weather and avoid slimming boxers and belts.
Can cystitis be transmitted sexually?
No. Most frequently, urinal tract infections are caused by bacteria that penetrate your urethra from your bowel. This, in its turn, is caused by poor hygiene and weakened immune system, not sex. Transferring the disease to a partner is impossible.
What do you do when one breast is bigger than another?
Nothing. Most women have breasts that differ in size, shape, fullness, firmness, etc. It depends upon the build of lacteal glands and distribution of fat tissue. Many organs in your body are asymmetrical. The right kidney is lower than the left one, the right lung consists of three lobs, and the left one consists of two lobs, and even feet and palms of many people are different in size. No one is questioning its normality . But female breasts are understandably much more popular than hands or feet.
If your breasts always were asymmetric or became this way after nursing, there is nothing to worry about. However, if the changes are sudden, consult a doctor and check for malignant tumors.
Is it true that women with larger breasts have higher risk of cancer?

It is true about some women, but this is a very rare condition. Yet, 30 to 60% of women of different ages complain about anorgasmia, which has to do with their “heads” rather than physiology.

Some researches tried to find a connection between the sex of a baby and the stage of woman’s menstrual cycle, but these calendars were not 100 per cent reliable.
What to do when my groin gets sweaty in hot weather?
Groin, just like armpits, has very many sweat glands; this is why sweatiness in hot weather is not very pleasant, but unavoidable. Unlike with armpits, deodorant will not save you in this case.

Do not thrust it too deep because you risk pushing the wax further down your ear or injuring eardrums.
Sometimes too much ear wax is released, which causes plug formation, which in turn may affect the ability to hear. In this case Q - tips will not help . Consult a doctor who will solve your problem with some simple manipulations.
