I’m 21 years old. I have just recently been noticing

I’m 21 years old. I have just recently been noticing thinning of my hair. I have never cut it, nor do I plan to. I have always had decently long hair, definitely hitting below my butt. Now it is barely at the end of my back.
I don’t know what the cause may be. I’m young, the only thing that I can think of is stress.
I used some shampoo that was supposed to increase hair growth and it ended up causing clumps and large amounts of long hair strands to fall out. Ever since this happened (about 3 months ago) I consistently have fallout in the shower and in my hair brush.
I don’t know if some shorter hair in the back is broken off, or new hair growing in.
I’m using aveda Invati advanced, which is supposed to reduce hair loss. I also have very bad dandruff and dry scalp.
I just need some advice.

I am a 21 year old female, I got married recently (as a virgin) and went through several not very successful attempts at intercourse, sometimes there was a bit of an entry but never quite significant and my husband did not discharge. Finally we had quite a successful intercourse a few hours ago during which In experienced pain and started bleeding quite heavily. The bleeding is ongoing and I m wondering if this is normal and if I should worry about blood loss.

I am a 21 year old female who is over weight. For the past two months at least i have been waking up in the morning, it use to be between 5:30 am and 7:30 am but now im up as early as 4am. sometimes earlier. It doesn t matter what time I go to bed. Whether it is 8pm or after midnight, I am up around these times. I wake up feeling very nauseous and begin vomiting. Now I dont always throw up but I think it happens more often than not. I have tried changing my diet and I even stopped eating after 8pm. However, I still get sick. When I was younger I had acid reflux and before I went to school in the mornings a few times a week I d get really sick. This however is completely different feeling. I feel this way every morning plus the sleeping thing. Depending on when I last ate and what time i do wake up, there may or may not be food in my stomach. If there is and I am vomiting, then i throw up until there is nothing left and begin to dry heave. its to the point where i sometimes will be throwing up so violently i start to choke bc i cant stop to take a breath . other days when nothing is in my stomach i gag and throw up spit and stomach acid. Now I m not sure if its something I ate the night before but somtimes when the vomit clears out or is a light color depending on the food, I see brown patches. Could that be blood or just something I ate or drink. I started a food diary, i logged everything I ate and did i even began eating 6 tiny meals a day and watched my calorie intake. I also tried to increase my protein intake in the mornings and/or at night to help boost my metabolism . I feel sick all morning till about 8 am. or if on a very rare occasion if i wake up after 8 am i really dont feel sick. since i feel better after 8 I go from extremely sick to beyond starving. its the same every morning whether i throw up or not. Upset stomach , sometimes diarrhea , nausea till 8ish then starving after. I ll drink a protein shake if i dont think my stomach can handle foods, then i go about my day, go to bed around 9:30pm most nights, and wake up and do it all over again.
