So I'm an 18 year old girl, 5ft8 and weight about 7 stone. I eat like there's no tomorrow and deliberately go for fattier options when it comes to food to try and gain weight but it isn't happening.
So would putting muscle on help me gain weight? I don't want to end up stupidly muscular but maybe a bit of muscle might help, I'm really scrawny and I hate it.3 AnswersDiet & Fitness7 years ago
My sister fried me some bacon yesterday, turns out it was gammon (don't ask how she got that wrong, long story!) that had been fried already, wrapped up and put in the freezer. I'm not even sure if its safe to cook food, freeze it then cook it again!
I woke up this morning feeling a little rough, stomach pains, a little nauseous, and a slight temperature. I also came on my period so is it mild food poisoning or just a rough period, I do often get bad pains.
Thanks in advance :)3 AnswersOther - Health8 years ago
I always get this little bit of pain before a bone cracks, I don't know if anyone else gets it its hard to describe, I'm really bad with having bones that crack!
But I've started getting this pain in my ankle, it starts just next to it and goes up to just above it, along the side of my foot/ankle. Its very similar to the pain I get just before a bone cracks, but its so much worse, I can barely stand on it! It started last Thursday, the bone's cracked several times since then but the pain hasn't stopped, I'm starting to wonder if it is anything to do with the bone, does anyone have any idea what it is?
I've been thinking about going to the doctor's but I'm on work experience (which involves large amounts of dog walking) for two weeks and I really don't want any time off. I'm really hoping the pain will go by the end of this work ex but I'm not sure I can keep putting up with this for two weeks, if anyone's got even a tiny idea what it could be I'd be really grateful!

Hi, I'm 16 years old, about 5 ft 7, and I weigh 7.12 stone.
Is this underweight?
I had some problems almost a year ago with my eating and stuff, but now I feel I'm eating properly. I don't get all of my 5 a day, usually only 2 or 3, but I don't eat loads of junk food.
I drink a lot of water, along with things like coffee and juice and the occasional fizzy drink.
I wouldn't say I get much exercise, though at college because its a large, open site and the practical unit is a 5-10 minute walk through a wooded type area, I do end up doing a fair amount of walking.
I'm just a bit worried, I weigh much less than I used to, yet I eat more and better than I did? Am I underweight or is this about the right weight for me? and what is the average weight for people my age and height?
thanks :)4 AnswersWomen's Health9 years ago
To start off, any homophobes can get lost.
So yeah, my girlfriend (lets call her A) cheated on me with my so called 'friend' (who I shall call M). It happened at a sleepover that I was supposed to be going to and at last minute I had to cancel. My other friends that went were actually in the room when this happened - don't ask me why lol. Let's call them D and P. Apparently they were both told to keep it quiet from me, and D, who I thought was a very close friend, did what A said. P managed to get hold of me though and told me what had happened. I wasn't sure if I believed her or not.
When I got to school the next morning A seemed in a bad mood, and when I asked her what was up, she said "nothing". So I asked her if it was something to do with M, and she looked at me really shocked and asked who had told me. I told her I wasn't saying, but did something really happen with M, and she kept denying it. So I left it for the day, though I didn't talk to her as much.
I spoke to P later that day and then I was up most of the night thinking about it. The next morning because I was tired I was in an especially bad mood, and when A was at the l gates waiting for me and my friends, she came over to hug me and I barged past her and walked away, not even looking at her. I was crying at the time as well so it was obvious something was up.
When her and D went to where we usually hang out, I was already stood there but a little bit away from them. They didn't see me. A was crying, and she said to D "Its about what happened with M. How did she find out?" and then she went on to say, "I don't even know why I did it, I don't like M in that way anymore so why did I do it?" I know she used to fancy M but that was a long time ago.
So I stood and listened to her pretty much admit it, yet she had lied to me. Its not the first time she's lied either. She told all my friends a while ago that apparently I didn't love her because I didn't kiss her all the time, even though she knew I didn't want us to be like that, and then when I asked her about it, she denied it.
I told my best friend about what had happened, and its somehow gotten around my friendship group. Suddenly everybody hates A and whenever she walks past in the corridor they say things such as "loner" and "slag" to her. I've been told that she threw herself down the stairs, though I don't know if this is true. I really hope it isn't, I feel so guilty :(
I don't want people having a go at her all the time, I know she was in the wrong for cheating and lying, but I still love her, I feel like a part of me's missing without her, but I know everyone would be disappointed if I got back with her, and she would probably do the same again anyway. Whenever people insult her and I tell them to leave her alone, they start having a go at me saying they never liked her in the 1st place and they just put up with her because of me, and now they have an excuse to have a go at her for things she's done to her even though before all this happened they seemed perfectly fine with her. How can I explain to them that I still have feelings for her and I don't like them having a go at her all the time because it makes me feel guilty? And how can I move on from her? Other people I've been out with were easier to get over, because none of them went to my school so no one was always going on about them.

I know this sounds like a weird question, but I am a bit confused over this.
I write and draw with my right hand and I use that hand in tennis and stuff when I'm holding the bat.
I use my left hand for everything else, like throwing balls and my left hand is stronger. I also use my left foot for kicking, like in football. Do you think this make me right handed or left handed?8 AnswersPolls & Surveys1 decade ago
Ok, so my vagina is really sore and itchy, and it looks red in places. It also seems to have swollen a bit. I get this discharge which is thick and a creamy grey colour and it smells strange. There are also little red spots where it is the most painful but they aren't very big and hard to see.
About a month ago I had similar symptoms, but less extreme, and I went to my doctor about it and he told me that it was thrush, and I got this tablet and cream. After that I was alright, its just a couple of days ago it seems to have come back again.
I'm quite worried. I'm 15, I've not had sex before so I don't think its a sexually transmitted disease, but I'm still worried about this. Is it thrush or something else? Please help, because I'm really worried and the itching is doing my head in!2 AnswersSTDs1 decade ago
I've recently got a girlfriend and she goes to the same school as me. We get on really well together and our friends (we hang around with the same group of friends, we did even before we were going out) are alright with it as well. Its just other people, the last few days at school I've had everybody even people who I don't know come over and ask "are you going out with that girl?" or "are you a lesbian?" I mean, I am a lesbian but I only came out about a week ago and only a few people know that. My parents hate that I have a girlfriend, so I'm definitely not telling them I'm a lesbian.
So then after I've told these people "none of your business" they'll take it as a yes anyway and go "eww that isn't natural its gross" and all that.
Then walking home there was this girl in my year group and her sister and a few of their friends and they were yelling stuff saying "where's your girlfriend gone?" and then one of them said "I love you will you be my girlfriend?"
I guess it could be worse but all this is really getting on my nerves, and I guess it could definitely get worse in the future. I've got less than a year left at school now but already this is getting me down. I really like my girlfriend and I definitely don't want to break up with her but I don't know how this is going to turn out. I've already had to see a psychologist about stuff and I don't want this extra stress to add on to it, especially with exams.
So do any of you know why people are so mean about this kind of thing? Can I do anything to get them to stop or is it best to just ignore them and hope they'll go away? I really don't want to get teachers involved.

I really don't know how. I had a girlfriend before but she finished me.
He hasn't done anything wrong. He's an OK enough person, but I just don't love him, I like him as a friend. We've been going out for about 8 months now but for all this time I never really felt like I love him, I left it for a while to see if I would eventually grow closer but I haven't. Its really awkward because he has autism, so I don't know how he will take it, he's 14 and I'm 15 and I'm his first girlfriend.
I just feel really awkward because I've never broken up with anyone before and I don't want to hurt his feelings really badly. I really prefer girls to guys anyway, but I've not fully come out about that yet (my boyfriend doesn't know) and I'm scared mum might find out. Any tips on what I should say?4 AnswersSingles & Dating1 decade ago
I know I posted a question a while ago about bisexuality and all that, but I've been thinking it over, and I'm pretty sure I'm a lesbian, or leaning very much towards it.
I'm always thinking about girls. I still go for guys, but very rarely, and the guys I go for look really feminine anyway and when I'm at home alone I sometimes watch lesbian porn.
I've had boyfriends, and also a girlfriend (who was a lesbian), but out of all of them my girlfriend is the only one that really treated me decently. One boyfriend had another girlfriend and they were placing bets on how long it would take for me to find out and what my reaction would be. Another just went out with me to show off to his mates that he had a girlfriend, the most he would ever say to me was "hi" in the corridor at school. The longest relationship I have been in was with my girlfriend, and even though we broke up we are still really close friends. She lives quite far away now, so we don't see each other often, but we occasionally have sleepovers at her house with some other mates.
I came out to my mates a while ago about being bi, and they seemed to accept it well enough, but some of them have said that I'm leaning towards girls, that I'll probably end up a lesbian. I don't mind, I don't have anything against lesbians. People can't help that they prefer people of the same sex. But its just confusing me. I want to start coming out to family, but I don't see Much point in saying now that I'm bi, then saying in a few years time "well, actually I'm a lesbian" or "I completely like guys".
So could I be a lesbian? Shall I keep quiet and come out to my family in a few years when I may be more sure, or shall I come out now? And does anyone have any ideas on how to say it,likek do I blurt it straight out or try and bring the subject up?

A while ago, me and two friends arranged to go to a concert, and this was going to be the first time I would ever see a band live. One of my friends had already got her ticket ages before (her dad was taking us), and me and my other friend were going to get ours together. When we tried to get the tickets though they were all sold out, but I wasn't so fussed about it, because I knew we could go next year or whatever. But then I found out that they had gone to the concert, that my other friend had managed to get a ticket. They didn't tell me though, I only found out when another girl told me. Apparently they told everyone to keep it quiet from me because they didn't want to hurt my feelings. But I feel really annoyed over this, but I'm not sure why?5 AnswersFriends1 decade ago
Well, it started a while ago. In one PE lesson while getting changed, a girl glanced my way in the changing rooms and noticed several massive great scars running down my stomach, and told just about everyone in my year group that I self harm.
I had loads of people asking me why I self harmed, and I explained that it just worked for me, like other people would exercise or hit something to relieve stress.
But then one guy who I am pretty good friends with decided he wanted to going to get into the emo stereotype. At first I thought this was fine, he could do what he wanted, but then he showed me some cuts on his wrist, and said he's started self harming. I felt really awful about it because I felt that I was the cause of this because I had told him that self harm helps me deal with stress and all that. I didn't have a clue what to say to him (I'm no good with words and persuading people and stuff) but I showed him some of my scars hoping they would scare him into stopping (I have a lot of pretty bad scars and bruises and that).
Then he seemed to stop, but then today at school he said to me "I've gone emo again", and showed me some new scars on his wrist.
So now I feel really guilty, and I don't have a clue what to say to him. I'm not sure why he wants to self harm, he doesn't sem to have any reason for it. He isn't bullied, has loads of mates, and is pretty spoiled. Should I try explaining to him that if he gets too into it, it'll be a nightmare to stop, and if anyone else found out they'd make his life hell? I don't know. I feel really guilty and I really don't have a clue what to say to him.3 AnswersFriends1 decade ago

I found out today that the cause of this really bad toothache I've been having is because of my wisdom teeth growing. I had an xray (to find out it was my wisdom teeth) and it turns out that the teeth are growing crooked, and are pushing into my other teeth. The dentist said that I might need the wisdom teeth taken out. Will it hurt more than a normal tooth being taken out?2 AnswersDental1 decade ago
I spend two days a week at another school (part of a diploma I'm doing, its been newly introduced and we're the first people to ever do it.) I've only had three days there, so I don't really know anyone. The only person I know is my friend who comes on the diploma with me (theres two people from my school and 16 from the other school and we're all in one class).
My friend is really ill, and can't come tomorrow, and the people in my class are like "shes from that other school, don't talk to her."
I can go to my normal school tomorrow, but my lessons at the other school are kind of 'if i miss one im immediately behind'. I don't want to be behind, but also I really don't want to be alone all day. I've thought about if i go to my normal school, I can catch up with other work (I have to do a lot of catching up because im missing so many lessons.)What should I do?

I'm 14, 5ft6, and I weigh 55kg. I walk to school every day, and I go on the Wii fit quite often as well. I don't do any sports clubs at school but if one of my friends invite me over to their house to play basketball or something, I'll always say yes (provided im not busy). I'm happy enough with my weight, its just my stomach sticks out lol.
I've tried asking my parents if they could buy some healthier food, like more fruit and less chocolate, but they said no, and now think I may be anorexic. I'm not, I just want to get a flatter stomach.
Dieting won't work, and I can't do much more exercise than I do already, because they would notice, but are there any exercises I can do in my room without them noticing?
