Can anyone tell me about urethral stricture disease?

Does anyone know about this? Does it cause a man to be able to hold his cum in when he cums until he releases it if he has had prior surgery?

urethral strictures are caused by trauma of some sort. what happens is that the urethra scars down and may or may not allow the normal flow of urine or semen
it may not be the choice of the man to 'hold it in'...he may not have a choice and he needs to be treated because strictures are a potentially life threatening problem by causing the kidneys to fail if left untreated  (+ info)

How soon after a urethral cyst removal surgery are you able to have sex again?

I had a sub-urethral cyst surgically removed on Feb. 8th--i have those dissolving stitches..I know i need to ask the doctor because everyone is different, but what is the typical waiting period to be able to have sex again?

Anywhere, depending on the Doctor and your body, from 2 weeks to 6 weeks.

I would check with the Doctor, but I bet he say's since it's been 10 days to resume intercourse when you feel comfortable.

EDIT: Your stitches will disolve anytime from a few days post-op up to 2 weeks.  (+ info)

How many of you women agree that urethral orifice and the clitoris should have been switched places?

urethral orifice and the clitoris should have been switched places --therefore, the clitoris gets stimulated more the closer it is to the vagina opening? and the urethral orifice in place of clitoris, therefore less infections?
So first urethral orifice on top then clitoris then vagina - in this order?
although it would be more pleasurable it could turn out dangerous during vaginal child birth...

Are you really as smart as your questions been reflecting?
Yes you have coined a very genius idea. I agree!
This would solve a lot of women's disatisfactions, and men's insecurity!

And oh, one more thing, are you really as sicksea as your avata?  (+ info)

How do I know if I have a urethral stricture?

When I open up my urethral opening a little, I can see a piece of skin connected between both sides of my urethra. For as long as I can remember, I have always dripped a small amount of urine after I urinate. Sometimes, it's not a straight stream either. Does this mean I have a urethral stricture?

no, what it means is you have a concern about your health and need to see a doctor for a diagnosis and any treatment that might be needed.  (+ info)

Is it normal to have your urethral opening in your vagina?

My urethral opening is in my vaginal opening, blocking half of it. Is this normal? I'd imagine it's going to make sex very painful as it blocks half of the opening.. should I see a doctor?

Your urethra is between your labia, making it seem like it's in the vaginal opening. It's completely normal.  (+ info)

Does anyone know if its possible to get pregnant after having a urethral diverticulum removed?

I had a Urethral Diverticulum removed back in 2007. Everything went fine and I was able to walk away from the surgery without having to put a sling in or anything. At the time I was 25 years old and the doctor said that my youth would help me with my recovery, but He had mentioned something regarding pregnancy and at the time I was a bit to out of it ( medication wise) to absorb what was said. If anyone has any information on this please let me know. Thank you!

Yes you should be able to get pregnant without complications due to the surgery. However, this should not stop you from doing your research and educating yourself on the matter. If your concerns still persist you should consult with a doctor to reassure you and / or educate you further on the matter. I know this may not be the perfect answer that you where looking for but the bottom line is I do not see a valid reason for that surgery to hinder your ability to get pregnant. Plenty of women get far more directly related and invasive procedures done, and are still able to conceive just fine. Truth is even health women that have never had any issues or procedures done, sometimes even have a difficult time concieveing. This is why it is best to seek help.
I am a surgical tech, almost done with my BSN in nursing, and a future med student; Not to mention my years of experience in not only the med field but also as a female that has had serious fem issues.
I am guessing that your concerns are because you have not yet conceived or are considering trying.
This can be nerve wrecking but, the best advise will be to seek help. Once you have spoken to your doc you may want to consider going to see a midwife.
Midwives are particularly spectacular when it comes to conceiving,under a variety of situations. It is a common misconception that they are simply used for deliveries but in fact, they are not simply used for delivering babies, they are used for the whole process. Pre conception- post gravida. They are a great resource to use once you have decided to try and conceive. Many insurances cover them as well.
I hope that I have helped you at least a little and I wish you the best of luck.  (+ info)

Why does my urethral opening feel sore? Why does it feel uncomfortable to urinate?

I had sex the other night with a condom and found forty-five minutes later that my urethral opening was burning and it feels uncomfortable to pee. I am thinking I have the clap but used protection and do not show any signs of discharge. Should i spend the obscene amounts of money to see a doctor or just drink some fluids and wait and see?

the spermicide might be irritating you. Could you be alergic to latex?  (+ info)

What diseases would have the symptom of coughing up blood or blood in the phlegm?

This is not a symptom of my own so please don't tell me to go to the doctor, it is for a piece of work I have to do for College.

If you could tell me the name of a disease/ diseases that cause this, preferably not consumption or TB, a little about it and other symptoms it would be a massive help!
If you could also include treatment options and how serious a disease it is that would also be fantastic!

Hope you can help! Thanks!

First: spitting up blood is clinically known as: HEMOPTYSIS (bloody sputum, spit)
Yes, pneumonia is the most likely, but......
The following is from my medical e-book (I'm a nursing student)

"Blood in the sputum (hemoptysis) is most often seen in clients with chronic bronchitis or lung cancer. Clients with tuberculosis, pulmonary infarction, bronchial adenoma, or lung abscess may have grossly bloody sputum."
Also the end stage of cycstic fibrosis will present with hemoptysis.

a biggie in the hospital is:
A pulmonary embolism (PE) is a collection of particulate matter (solids, liquids, or gaseous substances) that enters venous circulation and lodges in the pulmonary vessels. Large emboli obstruct pulmonary blood flow, leading to decreased systemic oxygenation, pulmonary tissue hypoxia, and potential death. Any substance can cause an embolism, but a blood clot is the most common.

Pulmonary embolism is the most common acute pulmonary disease (90%) among hospitalized clients. In most people with PE, a blood clot from a deep vein thrombosis (DVT) breaks loose from one of the veins in the legs or the pelvis. The thrombus breaks off, travels through the vena cava and right side of the heart, and then lodges in a smaller blood vessel in the lung. Platelets collect with the embolus, triggering the release of substances that cause blood vessel constriction. Widespread pulmonary vessel constriction and pulmonary hypertension impair gas exchange. Deoxygenated blood shunts into the arterial circulation, causing hypoxemia. About 12% of clients with PE do not have hypoxemia.

Pulmonary embolism affects at least 500,000 people a year in the United States, about 10% of whom die. Many die within 1 hour of the onset of symptoms or before the diagnosis has even been suspected.

For clients with a known risk for PE, small doses of prophylactic subcutaneous heparin may be prescribed every 8 to 12 hours. Heparin prevents excessive coagulation in clients immobilized for a prolonged period, after trauma or surgery, or when restricted to bedrest. Occasionally, a drug to reduce platelet aggregation, such as clopidogrel (Plavix), is used in place of heparin.

A smaller one that popped up in the book:
Goodpasture's syndrome is an autoimmune disorder in which autoantibodies are made against the glomerular basement membrane and neutrophils. The two organs with the most damage are the lungs and the kidney. Lung damage is manifested as pulmonary hemorrhage. Kidney damage manifests as glomerulonephritis that may rapidly progress to complete renal failure (see Chapters 74 and 75). Unlike other autoimmune disorders, Goodpasture's syndrome occurs most often in adolescent or young adult men. The exact cause or triggering agent is unknown.

Goodpasture's syndrome usually is not diagnosed until serious lung and/or kidney problems are present. Manifestations include shortness of breath, hemoptysis (bloody sputum), decreased urine output, weight gain, generalized nondependent edema, hypertension, and tachycardia. Chest x-rays show areas of consolidation. The most common cause of death is uremia as a result of renal failure.

Spontaneous resolution of Goodpasture's syndrome has occurred but is rare. Interventions focus on reducing the immune-mediated damage and performing some type of renal supportive therapy.

What diseases can you get from cutting yourself with a rusty knife?

This is a question from a growing nurse. I've always wondered if you really can get a disease from a rusty knife or any rust and what kind of diseases you can get.

staph aureus and staph epidermidis are commonly found on the skin and are responsible for
most infected wounds. methicillin resistant staph aureus (MRSA) is becoming a serious
problem. tetanus (clostridium tetani) is also a possibility but is usually not a problem with superficial
cuts that bleed a lot. infected wounds not treated properly can become gangrenous (clostridium
perfringens). clostridium bacteria are anaerobic which means that require a lack of oxygen to
grow. poor circulation or elevating an infected foot may lead to gangrene due to the lack of oxygen
in the infected area. if a person touches the cut with unclean hands, e. coli could infect the wound.  (+ info)
