You May Get Pregnant Through Anal Sex - Dr Steixner




Urologist Dr Brian Steixner revealed that he treated a patient who conceived after having sex with her partner through her rectum. The patient according to Dr. Steixner had a rare condition called 'cloacal malformation' which affects one in 50,000 people. This condition happens when the rectum, vagina and urethra fail to separate into three tubes and bodily fluids drain into one channel.


The woman had an operation when she was younger to fix the problem, but it didn't go according to plan and left a tiny hole connecting her womb to the rectum.

For new moms. Have you ever gone out and realized in the middle of a meeting that you needed an extra diaper or wipes for the baby? The baby's dress is soiled and you don't know what to do.

When To Stop Wearing Diapers On Your Baby

  

There is no set time to stop using diapers on babies because you know what? they are all different. However, while some show signs of readiness and stop as early as two, others may not be ready until they are three. For instance,   my girls stopped wearing diapers earlier than their brother. At two they were no longer padded, could say when they wanted to use the potty and stayed dry the

Love Generously. If God Didn't Have A Purpose For Us, We Couldn't Be Here

At the prodding of my friends I am writing this story.  My name is Mildred Honor. I am a former elementary school Music Teacher from Des Moines, Iowa.

I have always supplemented my income by Teaching Piano Lessons...Something I have done for over 30 years. During those years, I found that Children have many levels of musical ability, and even though I have never had the prodigy, I have taught some very talented students. However, I have also had my share of what I call 'Musically Challenged Pupils.

One such Pupil being Robby. Robby was 11 years old when his Mother (a Single Mom) dropped him off for his first Piano Lesson.

I prefer that Students (especially Boys) begin at  an earlier age, which I explained to Robby.  But Robby said that it had always been his Mother's Dream to hear him play the Piano, so I took him as a Student.

At the end of each weekly Lesson he would always say 'My

10 Things You Should Never Say To People Trying To Conceive (TTC)

 Image: TheGrio.

People sometimes don't know what to say to those going through this phase, and when they finally say something, you just wish they hadn't. In the journey of waiting on The Almighty, the giver of children, women have heard crazy, heart rending things being said to them. Surprisingly, these statements come from people very close who know their struggle.

1. You are still young, why are you worrying yourself? Yes na, we all know she is still young and she knows also that, if she is not too young yo get married, then she is not too young for anything.

Kudos As The Ministry of Education Moves to merge Christian and Islamic studies in schools. I Love It

Merging Christian and Islamic Studies Is  A Welcome Development



As I mother, I love this development by the Ministry of Education because you know what? If kids are given the freedom to know something about other Religions, there will definitely be less Religious Crisis in future. Tolerance for other Religions begin right there in the classroom where a Christian and an Islamic child sit together to listen to lessons about God. If they grow up learning Religion together at School, there will be more understanding and acceptance of others. After all, in our days we were taught that way. I learnt about  other world Religions in Primary and Secondary School, that made me realize that the whole world is not just filled with us Christians alone, there are people who believe in other supreme beings and that there are also people (Atheist)  who do not believe in the existence of any God; School taught me about Hindu, Budhism, Islam and so on. 

Although I grew up in the south not knowing what a mosque looked like, I was still taught and made to understand that Muslims pray in a place called a Mosque. The very first time I saw a mosque, it wasn't that strange because already I knew a little something about it. As a teacher, honestly, I never really liked the method of taking kids to separate classrooms when it's time for Religious Studies.Teaching these kids together doesn't mean they'll be converted into different Religions, No, Let's not forget that NO KNOWLEDGE IS WASTED. I support this move wholeheartedly, let the kids begin to sit under one roof when God is being mentioned and to ask questions and laugh together and know that the whole world is not just populated by Christians and Muslims alone. Read the article below and please let's hear if you are in support or against, leave your reason/s on the comment box...

10 Things I Wish I Knew Before I Had Kids

  1. You'll never sleep soundly again. From the moment you leave the delivery room with your baby into the post natal ward, you start to worry about what to do next and what to do after that and after that. Doctor visits, going early for immunizations, checking tiny heartbeats, checking even while baby is sleeping soundly, worrying bath water might choke baby, soap might hurt  baby's tender eyes and so on. Sleep is gone out the window, even if the baby is a deep sleeper, I still cannot sleep. All through the years of my raising these kids, sleep deprivation has really dealt with me I won't lie. The sign is clearly written on my dark eye circles, but now, thanks to good Foundations and concealers, una for run when una see my dark eye pishures.

10 things you must do as a first time mom


    Breastfeeding position
     Image courtesy: Pinterest.


  1. Breastfeeding isn't easy in the first few days of life: Your baby will fuss and cry a lot because he is not latching properly. If you have a kitchen stool, sit on it, a chair that has firm back and bum rest, sit on it to breastfeed. Avoid sitting on cushions and your soft bed to nurse. Sit and hold the baby like shown on the image above. If your baby has a great appetite and can suck for hours "Foodious baby" try changing positions to avoid back ache. You can start with Cradle hold, then change to cross-cradle hold, lying on your side to breastfeed or doing the laid back method. These are the best breastfeeding methods taught at antenatal and post natal clinics. When you lie by your side to breastfeed, ensure that you do not fall asleep o. Your newborn can choke on the freshly loaded boobies. If you wake up at night to feed and still feeling sleepy, try your best to sit.

    ALSO READ: How to give bath to new born baby
  2. You need some new mom breastfeeding essentials like breast pads to keep the loaded milk from soiling your clothes, ask for either disposable or washable breast pads at the baby items shop. There's so much in the disposable packs that you may not exhaust all before your breast milk stops leaking. Remember that stale milk has an odour and as you breast feed, deodorants are
