How are women affected by the pressure to conceive?
Good In Bed answeredNo matter how excited a woman is about the prospect of being pregnant, she can experience just as many sexual roadblocks as her male partner. Sex on demand can be tricky for her -- even if she’s the one doing the demanding. For example, it’s easy for women to get in the goal-oriented, baby-making mindset, where sex is simply a means to an ends. That can mean that she may not even be in the mood when she initiates sex, but is guided instead by ovulation. Yet a lack of desire can lead to additional problems, like decreased lubrication and difficulty climaxing. It’s important to devote the same amount of attention to foreplay and arousal when trying to conceive that you normally would.
What are breasts composed of?
HealthyWomen answeredBreasts are glands contained within the front of the chest wall. The average breast weighs between seven and 10 ounces and is primarily composed of 12 to 20 lobes that spread out from the nipple like the spokes in a bicycle tire. These triangular lobes each have one central duct that opens at the nipple, through which milk exits.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
What are the drinking guidelines for women?
Boston Women's Health Book Collective, Administration, answered
The U.S. guideline for moderate drinking by women is to have no more than one drink a day. Canadian guidelines are similar, recommending no more than nine drinks a week for women.
It is not wise to drink in these situations:
- If you are pregnant or breast-feeding
- Before you drive or perform tasks that pose a risk to the safety of yourself or others
- If you are taking medication that reacts negatively with alcohol
- If you have medical problems that are likely to get worse if you drink alcohol
- If you have problems with addiction
