increse intake of fibres in the form of roughage.

Doctor :  
Doctor :  
it prevents hormonal imbalance.
Doctor :   but it should not be overdone.
User :   Could that also be a cause to some of the other symptoms I may feel from time to time especially the emotional up-setness, or lack of excitement, not just sexual excitement.
Doctor :  
it can be one of the causes for the same.
User :   For me I don't kow if it's normal but usally when i'm around the oppiset sex I have a type of adrenaline, almost like when riding a roller coaster, and generally get bored or depressed when I can aquire that same feeling via Games or any other activitys.

User :   was just curious of that went hand-and-hand with physical activity and exercise or if that was another catagory altogether.

Doctor :
