Your Questions About Can You Eat Your Own Period

Betty asks…

What would happen if you ate your own period blood?

This is NOT a troll and I know it’s a nasty question, but would anything happen if you ate some of your own period blood or discharge? Girls only please

Hcg Diet answers:

It might upset your stomach, same as if you swallow blood when you have a nosebleed. But it wouldn’t hurt you in any serious way. It *is* possible to transmit blood-borne diseases through menstrual blood, but since we’re talking your own blood there’s no chance of that.

James asks…

How do you argue and communicate with difficult men?

I love my boyfriend; I’m grateful for him and things he does for me but I would rather eat my own poop than argue with him because it is just as draining and tiring than hearing a skinny girl talk about how “fat” she is. He’s definitely different than most guys – sensitive but still manly and is considerate over things most guys aren’t aware of. He has patience but he is SO impatient about the tiniest things. The argument will start over the TINIEST things about how I’m not hugging him close or not giving him a “real hug” – it’ll escalate and we’ll go through topics that don’t even have anything to do with it and I’ll question him why we’re arguing over the stupidest thing like why he’s “not feeling my hug”, then he’ll start the victim card on me but then I call him out and he’ll deny it. He’ll make these comments like, “I’m trying really hard” with a serious voice and i’ll say, “oh okay since I’m not trying hard at all and I’m selfish.” He’ll give examples like, “i did this to you but you can‘t be nice to me” kind of thing and how does that make me feel? Like crap. Honestly, how can a person feel if they’re giving examples that make them seem so caring and I’m the insensitive one who does as she wishes. He keeps pushing and pushing until my temper gets the best out of me and I’m in tears. I ignore him, he tries to win me back (which he SOOO good at doing) – emails, texts, voicemails, until I give in. Not sure if it’s a guy thing but he wants to FIX IT right away when I’ve been drained and I need space. He thinks I’m doing him a disservice by wanting space so I called him out, “please be respectful, give me space, I don’t want to talk about it now.” and it takes another 10 minutes as questions, “what do you mean respectful?”

I also find him to be such a fake. He claims he’s assertive yet he’s really agressive AND he gets passive sometimes. We’ll go out and he’s huffing and puffing and it’s like he believes he’s a martyr bc he’s doing something someone else wants to do (not him) – how does that make me feel when someone’s body language doesn’t seem positive? So I called him out on it, “do you not want to go?” “yes honey, I want to go.” I dig deeper and guess he really didn’t bc of the time – his logical reasons, which I do understand and i WISH he would’ve just told me. I called him out on being passive and again, he denied. Another thing was that he was such an a$$hole when I called him out on it, so I just ignored him again until he made an effort. He said he was just dissapointed in himself bc plans weren’t executed… blah blah blah. I hate that when he’s disappointed or mad at something or someone, he takes it out on whoever’s there. Also, I’m on my period right now and I’m honestly a SAINT more so than normally -being extra patient that my temper doesn’t get the best of me. He snapped and got frustrated and because of that, I shut him out emotionally. I can‘t trust him at that moment and it hurt me alot because it was a major concern. I told him I didn’t like it and naturally, I wanted space, so I didn’t talk to much to him – just civilly. I know he tried bc 10 minutes after that he was sucking up – compliments, making conversation, and 10 minutes after that, an apology…so I appreciated the effort. Anyhoo, please give me advice…

David asks…

why do dogs want to eat there own pooh?

We have a cocker spaniel and for the first time the other day,I caught her eating her pooh. I went to the bathroom and then she pooh and peed on the floor. She is 8 months old, she still has accidents on the kitchen floor. Does girl cocker spaniels ever quit peeing when there excited ?

Hcg Diet answers:

Sometimes we don’t know why a particular dog starts eating poop, but certain conditions can trigger the behavior. Since some of these indicate a dog who needs help, you’ll want to consider them as possibilities for what is going on with your dog.

1. A dog with a physical problem that causes excessive hunger, pain, or other sensations may resort to eating feces. If your adult dog who has not previously had this habit suddenly develops it, take the dog to your veterinarian for a check-up.

2. A dog who is not getting enough to eat or is going too long between meals may eat feces. Your veterinarian can help you evaluate the dog’s weight and can suggest a feeding schedule and amount. Sometimes it takes experimentation to see what works best for a particular dog.

3. A dog with intestinal parasites or other condition that creates blood or other fecal changes may eat feces. One dog may eat the feces of another dog who is shedding something like this in the stools. A fresh fecal specimen to your veterinarian for evaluation can detect some of these problems.

4. Sometimes a change of diet helps. There doesn’t seem to be any one food that is right for all dogs, and your dog may need something different than you’re currently feeding. Be sure to make any changes of diet gradual, mixing the new food in with the old over a period of several days or weeks, to give the dog’s intestines time to adjust and avoid diarrhea from the change.

5. Some dogs develop a mental connection that they will be punished if their humans find them in the same room with feces. Dogs react to this fearful situation in various ways, and one way is to eat the feces so it will not be there to make the human angry. This is one of many reasons not to use punishment when housetraining a dog.

6. Boredom can cause dogs to do all sorts of things, including eat feces. Interesting toys that have treats inside them for the dog to get out can help with lots of boredom-based problems.

7. Dogs may do just about any wild thing when suffering from separation anxiety. If that is the problem, this won’t be the only symptom, and you’ll want to help your dog work through the separation anxiety

Nancy asks…

What happens if I just eat 3 moderate sized salads with chicken or shrimp?

If I just eat 3 meals a day that consist of salad and chicken or shrimp will I lose at least 10lbs a month? I’m not trying to do Atkins I just think my body responds better when I eat less carbs.

Hcg Diet answers:

There are not enough calories in fruits & vegs to fuel the body. If you eat protein without sufficient fuel calories from fats or carbs, then you convert dietary protein to fuel leaving no protein for cellular needs, forcing the body to catabolize it’s own lean tissues. Carbs may be optional, but fuel calories are not but they can come from fat or carbs, but not protein.

If you don’t keep your calories high enough, the body will strip it’s own lean tissue for nutrition. Although that may look great on a scale it will make it MUCH easier to accumulate fat in the future (since all that pesky lean tissue burning up calories will be gone).

Protein is a very inefficient fuel to use exclusively for long term & the byproducts of the conversion to fuel can be dangerous if they overwhelm the body faster than the body can clear out the nitrogen & ammonia..

Just for example – Someone asked “what if” about a diet of 500g of pure protein (2000 calories a day)

500g protein with no fat would be fatal. Fat is essential but protein without fat will cause diarrhea & then death. So this next bit is only hypothetically speaking.

500g of protein only would turn the protein into a fuel source and not be able to be used for tissue repairs & cellular regeneration. So although you would think 500g of protein would be sufficient for these needs, it would be converted to a very inefficient fuel source with a dangerous buildup of nitrogen & ammonia (byproducts of gluconeogenesis). The body can handle some of these byproducts but not large quantities for long term. So in essence, all this protein would be processed as fuel and the body would STILL have to catabolize it’s own lean tissues for a protein source. 100% of the protein would be needed to convert to 58% glucose – it would be equal to fueling the body with 1160 calories of carbs and NO protein (IF your only ingestion was 2000 calories (500g) in pure protein).

It’s confusing to eat SO much protein and have none bioavailable but your body requires FUEL calories (which can come from fat OR carbs or both) AND protein.

BUT if you ate more than sufficient protein with more than sufficient dietary fat calories AND controlled carbs to less than 9grams per hour (Maximum carbs would be 144grams day or 576 calories) the balance of fuel calories would HAVE to be from dietary fats – at 9 calories per gram.

As long as you have <9grams carbs per hour, you will maintain insulin control & shouldn't gain weight, no matter the calories because insulin, the fat storage hormone is not activated. Controlling insulin levels will balance out other hormones & allow sex hormones (testosterone in males) & human growth hormone (HGH) to be produced naturally so lean tissue will be gained even without exercise.

I highly recommend adding virgin coconut oil to your diet. All fats can be used for sustained energy, but coconut oil is the (only) fat that can be used for quick energy like a carb.

It takes awhile to convert the body from being fueled by glucose to being fueled by fat but it does convert. It can take several weeks for the body to be able to compete athletically while using fat for fuel. The body does not become fat adapted though if "carb cycling" techniques are employed. Low carb marathon runners don't "hit the wall" with mid race fuel changeovers. It's not being fueled by fat that slows them down, it's the immediate fuel conversion period.

This study:

http://www.nutritionandmetabolism.com/content/1/1/2

seems to suggest that after one has become fat adapted, endurance exercise performance returns to normal, but sprint performance remains poor. The suggested reason is that this type of exercise can not be fueled by fat, it must be fueled by glucose.

Your Questions About Took 2 Allegra In One Day

George asks…

I was prescribed prednisone, 20mg 3x per day for 5 days. Feeling “disconnected” from my body?

Is this a normal side effect? How long will this last? I have 2 young kids and am concerned about driving them to school.
Is this common?

Hcg Diet answers:

Psychosis is listed as a possible side effect of taking corticosteroids like prednisone, it is not very common, but if you have it you have it.

Http://www.merckmanuals.com/professional/lexicomp/prednisone.html

The drug has a variety of uses, if you are using it for allergies then in the future you might consider trying an antihistamine like generic claritin, it does not get into the brain, and does not suppress the immune system like the more powerful corticosteroids but still has strong allergy relief. Allegra however causes birth defects in lab animals, overall that is not a good sign from a drug.

Ken asks…

Took 2 benadryl 24 hours ago…should I still feel it?

Ok so this is embarrassing…I took 2 benadryl 24 hours ago. Since I took them I feel very little sensativity in my legs. This hasnt subsided. Is this normal?

Hcg Diet answers:

It might be the benadryl. I have Restless Legs Syndrome, and I absolutely cannot take benadryl, it makes my legs wonky. Give it another couple of days to get out of your system. You just may not be able to take benadryl or any over-the-counter sleep aids with diphenhydramine. Also, you’ll want to stick with Claritin, Zyrtec, or Allegra for allergies.

Thomas asks…

what good allergy pills are there?

I have allergy since I was 7 every spring. I’m using zyrtec, it’s the best from what I found so far, but it doesn’t really help anymore.
basing on your own experience have you find some good pills?

thank you

Hcg Diet answers:

Zyrtec is the strongest thing over the counter, it is a step up from benedryl. I use tylenol allergy sinus OTC. But, you may want a prescriptoin for CLARINEX. It is GREAT. It takes about 2 days to kick in, but the effects last longer. I also like the nasal allergy spray “Veramist”. “nasonex” is a good nasal spray too. (quick relief. Both of those sprays are by prescription. I used to take “Allegra” after “Claritin” stopped working for me, but it takes about 2 weeks to get into your system. “Allegra” is still by prescription though. But, you get what you pay for with the relief. TRUST me. “Clarinex” with “Veramist” or “Nasonex” spray is my #1 choice. Then, “Allegra” for ongoing allergies.
Like you, I suffer from seasonal allergies as well. I have to STAY on top of it before it gets out of control & turns into a cold/sinus infection (YUCK)! The “Clarinex” has slowed down the number of occurences tremendously.

Betty asks…

Allergies and herbal medicine… read on if you have experience with any?

Am considering taking herbal medicine to help me treat or cure my allergies. If you have any information or experience with this treatment (herbal) of allergies can you please share it with me. Basically tell me any information you have pertaining herbal treatment of allergies.

Thank YOU so much in advance.

Hcg Diet answers:

I have bad allergies, dust, grass, and trees, on top of certain drugs, and my allegra only cuts it for the dust. When spring time rolls around I’m a goner.

I start taking quercetin about 2 weeks before my seasonal allerigies kick in, usually about twice a day. Once the allergies start getting to me, I supplement with stinging nettle a couple times a day. I got the names and ideas from Dr. Weil. My allergist approved the regimen. My allergies aren’t as bad for the past 4 years, which just so happens to be how long I’ve been taking the herbs.

Your Questions About Hcg Diet Drops Nausea

John asks…

How does hcg work?-the drops? ?

Please dont be rude im 18 years old 5’1 and weigh 143 pounds i have a fat stomach and really huge thighs! ;( i actually think i gained weight bc i was pregnant but i had an abortion and i know i was eating alot more thrn ever before when i was pregnant

Hcg Diet answers:

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Federal Trade Commission issued seven warning letters on December 6, 2011 to companies that sell the over-the-counter products, noting they have not been approved by the FDA for weight loss. The drops do not contain hcg hormone but similar synthetic peptide amino acids. These peptides are destroyed in the digestive system and are completely worthless.

Finally the Food and Drug Administration has taken steps to stop these possibly harmful products.
Anyone that lost weight on the diet protocol only did because they were eating 500 calories a day and in starvation mode.
The side effects of the hcg diet protocol are the side effects of malnutrition. These include headache, hair loss, interruption of menstrual cycles, fatigue, feeling lightheaded, disorientation, stomach pain, nausea, and diarrhea.
Common sense tells you this diet is nothing more than starvation. One of the side effects of properly using the hcg injections to increase fertility is weight gain. So how can the hormone cause weight loss other than malnutrition?
The mental apparatus occurring here is called “cognitive relativism” where hcg users assert their beliefs to the point where they deny facts, lack of evidence, and true expert opinion.
The doctors exploiting this benign hormone can’t even agree on how it works. Some say it releases stored fat calories into the system. Others say it acts as an appetite suppressant.
Neither explanation justifies the weight loss in the individuals taking the oral drops with NO hcg in them that still lost weight.

David asks…

Can you have a miscarriage without any bleeding?

Hcg Diet answers:

Hi there, well, there are different types of miscarriage.

My first miscarriage in January 2005 was a “complete” miscarriage,,,where I bled a lot. The second one in October 2005, I didn’t even know I had miscarried until I went for my first scan…there was no hearbeat (at 8 weeks though, this is not that uncommon as sometimes the fetus can be to small), but also the fetus had detached from the womb…had I not gone for a scan I probably would have started to bleed a few days later. On that one I had to have a D&C and after the D&C you usually bleed for a while also.

So…you can miscarry and not immediately bleed…but eventually, whats in your womb would have to be expelled either naturally or via a D&C.

Joseph asks…

can miscarriage happen without pain and bleeding?

hi all,
i was wondering about this for sometime now.I am 6 weeks along.as i had already said, no symptoms.no bleeding.I know many of you are in the same boat.but do you know about miscarriage that happens without pain or bleeding.There are no miscarriages in my family.i have very little inputs on this.please tell me if you guys are aware of such a thing.

Hcg Diet answers:

I have heard of it – my sister had a mis and it was only known by the ultrasound and not finding a heart beat. She had to have a D&C to remove fetus… I’ve had 3 miss’s and they have all had alot of blood and cramping. Hopefully you have not had one, and you are just lucky to have a great pregnancy! I wasn’t sick or anything in the beginning, just hunger, tender breasts and tiredness – good luck! ♥

Your Questions About Can You Drink Coffee While Pregnant

Ruth asks…

Coffee whitener while pregnant??

Is it safe to use a coffee whitener while pregnant?? Also if you are drinking de-caffinated tea, is there a limit as well as to how much you can consume in a day??Thanks!

Hcg Diet answers:

I don’t believe there is anything in powdered coffee creamer that would be harmful to your pregnancy. I can tell you from research, however, that a lot of products labeled “decaf” are really not so. They all have much less caffeine than their caffeinated counterparts, but some still have a significant amount. If you can’t find nutritional information about caffeine content on decaffeinated products, call the 1-800 number or visit the website for the specific brand you’re using (these are almost always listed somewhere on the packaging). 300mg of caffeine per day is acceptable for pregnant women, which is a pretty decent amount. Good luck and congrats!

Susan asks…

can you drink a small cup of cappuccino while you are pregnant?

Because i heard that caffeine can cause miscarriage.But alot of people say that they drink coffee through out there whole pregnancy.

Hcg Diet answers:

Doctors say it’s not good to drink caffeinated stuff, but in Europe pregnant women drink coffee every day. Supposedly, caffeine can build up in the baby’s body because his liver/kidneys don’t work as good as yours, and baby might develop heart problems or be hyperactive (irritable) when born.

I heard it’s safe to have 1 small cup a day, but I don’t take risks even I LOVE coffee.
One cup a week is okay, I think.
Or try decaf that was processed with swiss water (organically not chemically).

Coffee in general causes high blood pressure, that’s why it can cause a miscarriage.

Lisa asks…

How many caffeinated drinks do you drink a day while being pregnant?

I will drink a can of coke or have some plain tea every now and then but I’ve been trying to avoid coffee.
My OB-GYN said its okay to have up to 2 cups of a caffeinated drink daily…and he actually recommended drinking a coke if you haven’t felt much movement from the baby.

Hcg Diet answers:

I only drink water, milk, and juice – all the time, even when I am not pregnant.

George asks…

I’ve heard that pregnant women shouldn’t have coffee, is that true?

If so why?

Also if someone can give me a quick list of things that you shouldnt eat or drink while pregnant I would really appreciate it. I havent been to the doctor yet but I’m going soon and until then I’d like to stay as healthy as I could, thanks.
Thank you so much for all your answers!

Hcg Diet answers:

You can have Decaf coffee. Only 1 soda a day..Too much caffine isn’t good for the baby. NO energy drinks/shots/expressos/alcoholic beverages. I drink lots and lots and lots of water, and juice. Be sure you drink the 100% juice…I tend to drink the no-sugar-added ones. Don’t take any medications..that aren’t listed on this website.
