Is there a way to check IUD (Intrauterine device) regularly to prevent embedded IUD/perforation?

Doctor's Answers 1

Yes, the location of the IUCD can be imaged by ultrasound conveniently by an ultrasonographing gynaecologist.

What pills can I take to induce a period without weight gain as a side effect?

Weight gain is one of the unwanted side effects of some oral contraceptive pills. This is the result of water retention rather than the accumulation of fat. The more premium oral contraceptive pills that contain progesterone in the form of drospirenone will not cause bloating or weight gain. This is because drospirenone acts like natural progesterone and counteracts the mechanism that causes water retention and therefore bloating. Examples of oral contraceptives which contain drospirenone include Yasmin and Yaz.

Should I be concerned with dry, peeling foreskin next to the glands of my penis?

Thank you for your interest in such a commonly encountered problem at the clinic. Quite a number of potential causes for dry skin on penis and penis skin peeling came to my mind. 1.) Dry, unlubricated sexual acts, including masturbation or intercourse, can cause enough friction to irritate the skin of the penis. Irritation of the skin of the penis can culminate in itching, flaking, and peeling of the skin. Opt for a water-based lubricant if you have sensitive skin. 2.) Wearing overly tight pants or pants without underwear can also cause irritation from friction.
