Prostate Milking

Dec 23 2016 Published by under Health


Prostate milking the stimulation of the prostate gland in males also known as prostate massage is performed either for medical or sexual purposes.

Mostly prostate milking is used by symptoms of chronic prostatitis and for reduction of sexual activity. Massage is a medical procedure used in treatment of chronic prostatitis and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). It is used to receive prostatic fluid for future analysis.

Milk for the prostate is done internally by index finger (latex glove is used). Also it may be done with other medical instrument or with prostate massager. The Procedure also can be done externally through the perineum, but this way is less effective in the removal of prostate fluid. Milking with use of index fingers palpatory sense and gently movement is more effective and safe.

As a medical procedure prostate milking is performed in Urology for changing or choosing of tactics for treatment of chronic prostatis. It is not performed in men who have acute prostatitis or acute inflammation of the glandular tissue. The milking will force the seminal fluid past the valves in the ducts, and empty the prostate which discharges directly into the urethra. Receved fluid is gathered in a sterile cup and sent to the laboratory for testing purposes.

The reason why prostate milking is better to be performed in sterile area and by an experienced urologyst is that it has some risks such as damaging sensitive nerves and even life threatening internal damage of prostate tissue itself.

Birth control pill offers heart protection if taken for ten years before menopause

May 19 2015 Published by under Health

I am not really sure what to make of this. Apparently, new reports show that the estrogen in birth control pills can offer prevention from the development of heart disease. And that the pills are most effective if taken for ten years right before the onset of menopause. This means from about ages 45-54.

All I know is that I keep thinking to myself, “The birth control pill increases risk of stroke, particularly if taken after the age of 35.” I stopped taking the pill right before I turned 35 because a close friend of mine had a double brainstem stroke. She was my age. I will not be joining the leagues of women who are signing up for this. I run 4-5 miles a day. I watch what I eat. And I sat and held my friend’s hand in the hospital after her stroke, and cried for her two-year-old daughter. My friend is doing very well now, but I will take my chances on heart disease, and stay away from the pill from now on.

Dads, Divorce, and the Battle for Custody

Sep 09 2014 Published by under Health

If I may be permitted to speak on a serious topic for a moment…

I’m not sure if you are aware of this or not, my bloggies, but I also write an advice column called “Damage Control” in the Globe and Mail, in the Life section every Friday (tell your friends).

And it seems to get a lot of attention. Because it handles everyday situations, I guess, stuff everyone has an opinion on, it seems to get more comments on its “comments thread” than almost anything.

Also, as the title implies, it’s all about how to handle screwed-up situations, and everyone can relate to that, right?

I never know what’s going to stir up controversy. Sometimes it’s predictable, I guess: any mention of religion usually seems to get people’s blood boiling.

But sometimes it can be something I think is quite “light.” Like last week’s: “I’m 31 and I have a crush on a 20-year-old in my office.” No biggie, I said, basically, you’re both adults, who cares, maybe when “The graduate” came out it was shocking and scandalous an older woman would hit on a younger man. But in 2008? Go for it. “Drop down on him like darkness on an innocent peasant village,” I advised.

This seemed a pretty straightforward situation, to me. Easy answer. No brainer. I expected a couple of desultory hits on the website and that’d be that.

I was wrong. The so-called “inter-net” went nuts. I got more hits, and more comments, on that article than any other. So you never know.

But sometimes you do know. I figured today’s column– all about Dads, Divorce, and Custody– would stir up a hornet’s nest.

And I was right.

I can’t even really comment on the issue, because my knowledge of it is mostly anecdotal. I did talk to a couple of lawyers about it, but they didn’t really want to comment about how men are dealt with by the courts.

So I have no facts, none whatsoever. I admit that up front. But it does seem many men are they are feeling that, in terms of who the courts give custody to, men are not getting a fair shake.

And of course there’s really no way to know the truth. Each of these situations is so knotty, so thorny; and, as one lawyer said to me, “in domestic disputes, everyone has their own version of events, there are no witnesses…it’s hard to sort out what really happened.”

How hard must it be for a court to untangle these messed-up situations, figure out the right thing to do! And of course when it’s a question of child care, the woman’s an obvious choice, right? And perhaps many of the men who feel so wronged are not, shall we say, able to be objective about their role in the situation.

Let us concede all the above. Still– a lot of men seem to feel they’re getting a raw deal. That’s all I’m saying.

And they are in pain. I can feel it. Or, if that’s too “mystical” for your derrieres, let’s say: I can only imagine. Being separated from my children, especially if I felt it were under unfair situations, would kill me.

Not quickly. Slowly, as I went into a destructive, downward spiral, life-style-choices wise, emotionally, and health-wise.

I hope I never have to face that challenge.
