Chlamydia Test

Chlamydia is a prevalent, sexually transmitted infection in the US—may be more than many of us think. It hardly shows symptoms, which makes it difficult to detect.

One CDC study shows the United States reported more than 1.5 million chlamydia incidents in 2017. 

That is to say, in every 100,000 Americans, approximately were Chlamydia victims. This number has more than doubled from 2 decades ago when it was almost 250.

And while you may have heard about this widespread STI, you may be curious about what happens during a chlamydia test.

It’s okay to want to familiarize yourself with the testing procedures because it prepares you psychologically and helps you demystify myths related to STI testing.

Everything a Lady Should Learn about Hair Color

Coloring of the hair should be left for experienced individuals. Doing it alone can be the most stressful and challenging DIY you ever tried. 

Hair dying should be done in a salon to ensure quality results and proper hair-safe procedures.

Before doing any coloring activities, you must familiarize yourself with the following tips.

  1. Do a little consultation before deciding on the shade.

It helps to learn what you want versus what your colorist can offer. Based on various circumstances, hair color sessions take an average of 60 minutes, while others will need more than one session.

Booking an appointment without a clue may lead to schedule interruption and an undesired result. Early appointments with your colorist offer ample time for the two of you to agree on a custom shade and look.

Rethinking Condom Education and Training

It is a worrying ordeal when the man finally pulls out and then oops! The condom broke, slipped, or whatever happened during the adrenaline rush.

A plethora of thoughts can start rushing into the duo's head. Is someone at the risk of pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections, and such? 

Well, it turns out that the Condom Education our health bodies share does not prepare people to deal with condom slips or tears.

Adolescents, in particular, get caught in catch-22 when a condom breaks or slips because we train them that condoms hardly ever break if used appropriately.

But there you are, you probably followed every rule when using protection, but somehow things got out hand.

Online Dating Tips for Senior Women.

Long ago, couples used to find their "Mr. or Ms. Rights" in college, at work, in parties, in a bar, or get-togethers.

Today, people (especially those over 45 years old) are increasingly meeting their other halves through online dating sites. Various studies have thus found that adults are the most popular people users in dating sites. 

In a study by Pew Research Center, over 25 percent of the interviewed grownups feel dating over the web has done more harm than good to relationships. Only 22 percent feel digital dating has impacted relationships positively.

The rest (more than 50%) did not respond to whether dating online has done more harm than good to human affairs.

Here are the pros and cons of dating online, as listed by users.
