Question: Do I have an ear infection?

So about two weeks ago I noticed my ear hurt when I lay on that side and when I touched it and sometimes I found it was hard to hear in that ear too then I noticed that it seemed very dry and rough, probably scanning and I mistakenly picked on it because it made me feel better and there was blood. Do I have an ear infection? What should I do? Any remedies I can try?

Charlize Theron spoke out about growing up with an alcoholic parent, and it’s so important

Growing up with an alcoholic parent can be traumatic. And recently, Charlize Theron talked about growing up with an alcoholic father in an interview with Howard Stern. The conversation is a difficult one to have, but it’s very important.

Charlize’s father was an alcoholic. He also physically abused Charlize’s mother and verbally abused Charlize. Charlize’s father’s abuse ended in tragedy when her mother fatally shot her father in self-defense when Charlize was 15.

 The trauma of living with an alcoholic father lasted for a long time.

Charlize was well into her adult life before she spoke out about her experiences, first opening up in an interview Diane Sawyer in 2008. Though it may be hard for her to discuss, it is important to share these stories.


She continued the conversation in an interview with Howard Stern this past week.

“I think what more affected me for my adult life that happened in my childhood was more the everyday [life] of a child living in the house with an alcoholic and waking up not knowing what was going to happen. And not knowing how my day was going to go and all of it dependent on somebody else and whether he was not going to drink or [not],” Charlize said.

She also explained that it took her a long time to be able to process what happened, a common reaction to trauma.

“[I] just pretended like it didn’t happen,” she said.

Living with an alcoholic can be an extremely volatile situation.

The National Council on Alcohol and Drug Dependence states, “two-thirds of victims of spousal violence report that the perpetrator had been drinking.”  

30 percent of adults have experienced alcoholism or spectrum alcohol abuse. Alcoholism isn’t uncommon, and it’s imperative to talk about it.

While it may not be easy for Charlize Theron to speak out about her trauma, it is so necessary. We applaud her for her strength in speaking out.

Question: Does norethisterone for period delay prevent pregnancy?

Hi so I’m taking norethisterone to delay my period (5mg 3 times a day). The contraceptive noriday is norethisterone 0.35g once a day. The official line is norethisterone for period delay does not stop you getting pregnant, but I don’t understand whether this is just to stop people using it as a contraceptive or wether there’s some different effect due to the dose. Does anyone know wether you can actually get pregnant or not while taking norethisterone for period delay? There’s nothing online that explains this. Thanks for any help:)
