Hi! I am 18 years old, and I am worried I am pregnant. My boyfriend and I had sex but on November 15th one of our condoms broke while he was inside of me. My period was already late during that time probably because of the plan b I had taken previously, but two days later I started my period. I did not take a plan b because I started my period and I figured I didn't need to. But about 15 days later my boobs and nipples are so so so itchy not to mention the itchiness has spread now my back itches, along with my neck, stomach and thighs. I also gagged when I was brushing my tongue but I do not know if I am being over dramatic or if I am being reasonable! Someone help please!!

You are experiencing many symptoms which are not symptoms of pregnancy.  If you have missed a period you should take a pregnancy test. 

Please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Center to find a type of birth control, contraception that is right for you. 

I was on Depo but switched to nexplanon in April and periods had stopped while on Depo and my boyfriend and I have had unprotected sex but he always pulls out a little bit before he ejaculates, but occasionally I get these small cramps in my ovaries and uterus area could this be my period coming back or could it be something like PCOS?

It is unclear from what you describe why you would get small cramps in your ovaries and uterus. 

If this continues and is a concern please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Center.  

My girlfriend and I had protected sex and she is on birth control. When I pulled out the condom fell off and I'm pretty sure all my ejaculation went on her back. To be safe we went and got a plan B. Is there any chance that she could be pregnant?

If your girlfriend uses birth control as it is recommended and she took plan B within 5 days there is very little chance she could be pregnant.  

I have gotten my depo shot for 2 years now on Time I was a week late getting it this month I got it on a Monday it's Friday will I still be protected?

It would be important to know the dates of your last depo shot.  If the latest shot was received more than 14 weeks after,  then the recommendation is to use back up protection for 7 days. 

Hi. Why can't I get my periods even after using a condom?

If you are using a condom properly everytime then you are likely preventing pregnancy. 

There are other reasons women do not get periods regularly. 

Please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Center.

I have been considering limb lengthening surgery for quite some time (4 inch increase via tibia/femur). I've done some research and have found this to be a highly successful surgery with very low chance of developing issues afterward. What I couldn't find were potential illnesses, and organ related issues that can arise from this procedure. There is a strong correlation between height and the size of the heart, lungs, arteries etc. Usually, taller people will have the larger organs and the shorter people will have the smaller organs. I would imagine this correlation exists because taller people demand the larger organs to sustain their size. With this in mind, I am wondering if my body will be able to sustain the height increase and thus having no effect at all on my organs/cardiovascular system from the added bone length? or can I potentially develop issues with my heart and/or other organs since they were not designed to accommodate for the extra 4 inches in bone length and the added tissue that grows with it?

Interesting question.  It would be best to ask the surgeons who are performing this type of surgery.
