Hello, My question is; Myself and my partner are both


My question is;

Myself and my partner are both using a sperm donor to have a baby and the donor has had 54 families with reported births.

All of these reported births have not had any reported genetic concerns or defects with their babies however one recent birth from a new family has reported Hirschsprung disease. This is not a disease that the donor has had within his family history or present within the other families, so I wanted to find out more information as to whether I should be cautious about using this sperm donors sperm and just get medical opinions on this matter.

Thank you for your help and thoughts.

Hello, I have a question about hemorrhoids. Is it normal to have a flare up that causes no solid stools except a small amount of diarrhea with a little blood when I wipe? My doctor gave me a prescription for Hdrocortisone suppositories (3 a day ) on Saturday. I am still the same today. And it hurts badly when I try to go to the restroom, but not internal, just where the hemorrhoid is flared up. I do not have any extended outside. Does it take awhile for the flare up to calm down with the suppositories, or should have my hemorrihoids calmed down after taking a few of the suppositories on Saturday or Sunday? I hope you can give me some advise that is hopeful. Thank you

Hello I have a medical question regarding a pee fetish my boyfriend and I share. I realise that if both partners are healthy pee is not harmful and I have practised it in the past but I have not been on any pills, but unfortunatelly I have an autoimune lung disease – sarkoidosis (2. Stage) that was discovered recently and I am on MEDROL pills (steroid therapy), and I should be for another 5 months and then we ll see how it goes. My boyfriend is really into pee drinking however we play other games but for now I do not allow that, since I don t know if it may be harmful to him. I m embarassed too much to talk to my doctor about this so i hope You can help. So is it better to wait untill I am off pills or he can drink small quantaties? Or how it is with all that... Thank you so much for your kind answer. C.L.
