Hi my name is Chris, and I m 42 years old, and I was just told my liver en zines are high, and at a 128 last week. I changed my diet, and started exercising. Now I m having a gout attack in my right foot, so I can t exercise until that clears up. My doctor has told me, once the attack is gone, he will need to be put on a preventative. In the past couple years, I have about 2 flare up s per year, but can control them with some high powered IP to relieve the attack. I was cautioned that it my or could cause damage if taken frequently. Could any of this cause the levels of the liver increasing? What can I do to help this problem? I probably only drink 1-4 alcoholic drinks a week.

Hi, I'm 17 and I've been masturbating for 6 years and I've been constantly wondering about these few questions because I want to have children's someday when I'm older:

-What happens if you lose a quality of your sperm? Like the seed in your sperm

-If you never masturbate before and you have sex with a girl and have a child. Will that child be kind of the same when you masturbate a lot before you have sex?

-Does each sperm carry the same or different genetic code? Like what I'm trying to get at is that, if one of the sperm carries genetic information. There's no other sperm that carries at least that one sperm? I know that sex cells are meiosis and they carry different genetic codes. So I'm just wondering.

Please be strong in each question because I know you guys are doctors and you might never know what you might find base on the research you guys already have or the other scientist or not. I don't know, but please don't feel that I'm offending you guys in some ways:)

I am a 49 year old women. I have been having mild hot flashed and have only had two periods in the past year. Last week, I began to experience severe thigh cramps. They occur both at night and during the day but are more consistent at night. I am having a great deal of trouble sleeping. I have tried advil and Aleve, but the only thing that really relieves the pain is a hydro-codone. I do not want to take hydro codone on a daily basis. I do not want to take any addictive and/or narcotic substances. What do you suggest?

Hi, I just turned 43. Last year i had one failed IVF . For the past three months my new doctor is checking my FSH and E2 hormones to try IUI . So far they have been elevated. Today he suggested I think about using my sister for egg donation . My sister is 31 years old and is ready to help. My doctor says since we are biological sisters, the egg will have 100% the same genetics . But I think I will always think that its not my child. I want to know if her egg is implanted in me and i become pregnant will it become my own child(i am not talking about phycological issues), will it have my own genes, will there be a resemblance with me? thanks
