Should Morning-After Pills Be Prescribed To Teen Girls??

Filed under: DrugsHealthSex

teen-girl-birth-control-morning-after-pill.jpg

Morning after pills, like Plan B, are technically sold over-the-counter.

That means you could pick them up from a pharmacy just like you could Aspirin or something.

But because of federal law, birth control can't be sold to girls under the age of 17.

Girls 16 and younger need a prescription.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has recommended that pediatricians routinely talk to their teen patients about emergency birth control and to write them prescriptions for morning-after pills.

So then if a girl does have sex, and regular birth control does fail (exploding condoms), she'll be able to get her pills right away.

Morning-after pills can work up to 120 hours after sex but they work best if taken within the first 24 hours.

The AAP said:

Sexual Addiction On The Verge Of Official Mental Disorder Label

Filed under: HealthMental HealthSex

There are at least a few of you out there that don't believe that sexual addiction is a real thing, and you're sitting there snickering away over how it's just an excuse to be as sexually promiscuous as possible.

Well, what if we told you it's on the verge of being labeled an official mental disorder? There is a difference between being way into sex and being addicted to it.

Former Steelers Doctor Charged For Prescribing Steroids

Filed under: DrugsLegal MattersMedicineFootball

Dr. Rydze, a former doctor for the Pittsburgh Steelers, is in trouble after buying a suspiciously large quantity of anabolic steroids!

Hmm… a football doctor buying tons of steroids? We wonder what those were for…

Maybe a game of medical darts where you use the butts of NFL players as a target and instead of just pulling the "dart" out of the "dartboard" you push down on the plunger first.

Repeat this every few weeks for a fun doctor game/great football season.

We're just joking though, because the feds don't list the team or any of its players as having gotten any of the illegal substances.

We guess drug testing in the NFL is too rigorous.

This is just awful — 14 deaths have resulted from 185 cases of meningitis caused by a spinal steroid issued by the New England Compounding Center.

Because of that, there is a new class-action lawsuit being mounted and filed against the company for the "fungus contaminated steroid."

bret-michaels-hospitality-music-room

The more we hear about Bret Michaels, the more we like — we think he's a genuinely nice guy who wants to help and repay favors.

For instance, take the fact that Bret just invested in a new room for patients and their families at the Phoenix hospital where he was treated for a brain hemorrhage.

How's that for a thank you??

Stress And Depression Might Affect Cancer Survival

Cancer Stress Depression Death

Well, this sucks!

As if being diagnosed with cancer isn't already inherently stressful and depressing, it turns out that both of those things play a part in cancer survival rates.

The study found that symptoms of depression among a group of patients with late-stage renal cell carcinoma were associated with an increased risk of death.

So what was it exactly?

SICK! L.A. Gynecologist Charged For Sexually Assaulting Patient!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooSickScary!

gynecologist sexual assault

Ugh!

We can't even believe stuff like this happens!! Doctors are supposed to CARE for patients, not sexually assault them!

A gynecologist from Van Nuys has just been charged with sexually assaulting a patient on two occasions while examining her at a Northridge hospital.

His name is Dr. Kevin Pezeshki, and we really hope you're not finding out right now that he's your doctor.

If he was, and you are also a victim, now's the time to come forward, though!

So what happened?
