Team HYMEN, I have gist for you.

1) Not every woman is born with a hymen
2) Not every woman will bleed during her first sexual intercourse
3) Some women have imperforate hymen. Completely sealed, even menses can’t pass.
4) A woman’s rape plea isn’t less cos she’s not a ‘virgin’.
This table is for those looking for ‘Hymen to Marry’...
Virginity until marriage is Great! I endorse it! It is a choice.
But don't get it twisted, Just as Virginity is not directly proportional to Morality, so it is not, to the presence of Hymen.
Every girl child differs from the next. There are different types of hymen in girls (See picture below).

And the amount of blood that will ‘stain ya bedsheets' is directly proportional to thickness of the hymen, IF PRESENT at all.
No hymen, No blood!
Unless the sex was rough🙏🏽

Your wife gives birth to yet another girl.

Has yet another miscarriage.

Your child has yet another seizure or yet another sickle cell crisis.

And in the hospital, you’re screaming,
“This is the last time I’m spending my money on this rubbish”
You’re the rubbish Sir.
Let me elucidate:
1) They are your family and your responsibility

2) Your wife and children are not the problem. You are a broke and insensitive man, who is undeserving of them.

3) God gives children and You give the sperm sir. It includes the genes and the sex chromosomes.
Dear women,
Once more, hustle o.

According to Zoro,
“Money stop what?”
“Money stop nonsense”

Also, please know your genotype and report any form of abuse here

Dear parents,
Not every illness is malaria and typhoid.

(Type 1)
Can occur at any age. But mostly; Ages 4-7 and 10-14. Usually genetic.

Pregnancy can induce Diabetes too; GESTATIONAL DIABETES👇🏽
Child should see a Paediatrician, if any of these symptoms appear;

Increased thirst
Frequent urination
Bed-wetting in children who previously didn't wet the bed during the night
Extreme hunger
Unintended weight loss
Irritability and other mood changes
Fatigue and weakness
- Blurred Vision.
With children, it is better to be over concerned, than under concerned.

Juvenile Diabetes, is usually genetic, auto immune (Here the body fights itself, in this case destroying pancreatic insulin cells) and can be caused by some viruses or environmental factors

The greatest fallacy about living with Diabetes is that you have to be eating ONLY BEANS, PLANTAIN, Moi Moi🤦🏽‍♀️🙆🏽‍♀️! Reason why most are malnourished!

Real ‘Diabetic Diet’ is;

“Eat every healthy food. Add more vegetables. Just in fist size portions per meal.”
Patients coming to our diabetic clinic are always asked to come with their relative or care giver.

They need all the support they can get. While we don’t advice patients taking refined sugars, we however advice they have some of these drinks closeby in case of HYPOGLYCEMIC bouts
Hypoglycemia is simply a drop or more below the normal body sugar level. Severe hypoglycemia can kill faster that hyperglycemia ( seem in diabetes).

So in these attacks, patients might be sweaty, drowsy and even faint. So if there sugar level is tested and is low...👇🏽

Sexual Intercourse is different from Sexual Contact!

One is penetrative, the other is not, let’s call it ‘Merry-go-rounding’🤦🏽‍♀️

Just a reminder that you can get HPV infection from Sexual contact as much as from Intercourse.

This means a Virgin can contact HPV!
HPV- Human Papilloma Virus is a viral STI with many strains. Low risk ( Causing Genital warts) and High risk (Causing Cancers: Cervical, Penile, Anal, Oral).

All it takes is for an uninfected person to come in close body contact with infected area. Do condoms offer protection?👇🏽
Use condoms. They are protective, from STIs. And also prevent unwanted pregnancy.
However, when it comes to HPV, condoms don’t offer complete protection. This is Cos, they can only cover a limited area of the genitalia. And contact with any infected area can lead to infection.

You use antibiotics for contraception
You use it for abortion
You use it to ‘prevent and treat ‘toilet infeshion’
You use it for Pain and purging
You use it for YOUR Malaria and ‘tyfod’
You even use it to dry up your menses!

Shey, Cos you’re a walking bacteria abi?🤷🏽‍♀️🤨
Antibiotics are medicines which kill or inhibit the growth of microorganisms esp bacteria.

They are to be prescribed by a doctor and dispensed by a pharmacist (Not Dr Chemist the drug mixer)

Antibiotics are not indicated in over half the cases we take it for!.
Sperm and the fetus in your womb are not bacteria. Stop abusing and wasting your time with ampiclox

Infeshion: Which one do you know you’re treating? You will treat virus with antibacterial abi?
Pain: Antibiotic is not an analgesic
Menses: 🙄
Antibiotic resistance is real!!!!

Am I surprised? No!
1) It is transmitted by Mosquitoes (Our Roommates)!
2) In Nigeria, we bribe our way through, get yellow cards without actually being vaccinated and we feel Cool about it!

#VaccinesWork and are Free in Primary Health Centres.
A single dose of the vaccine is effective. In 80% of people it gives immunity within 10days. And in about 90% gives immunity in 30 days from dose.

It is a Viral Haemorrhagic fever. Meaning there is fever and Bleeding from orifices just like Lassa and Ebola, in late cases.
Early detection and Good supportive treatment in hospitals improve outcome as there is no specific anti viral drug for #YellowFever.
Symptoms include:
head ache
jaundice (Yellowness of the eyes)
muscle pain
and fatigue.
Be aware. Don’t self medicate

Dear Weed Smoker,
If you want to smoke weed even after knowing all side effects, by all means do it proudly. It’s your Choice. Your life or Your death.

Don’t unfortunately tell me,
“It is medical!”
Cos, asides a Low self esteem what else are you suffering from?🤷🏽‍♀️
And before you argue,
1) Are drugs not meant to be approved first by FDA and NAFDAC (atleast for Nigeria)
2) Are drugs not meant to be prescribed by a doctor and in doses?
3) Don’t you first have to be sick to take a drug?
4) Have you ever even honestly read about it?🤷🏽‍♀️
If you will all be honest to yourselves, you will know you are honestly grasping at straws you can’t see.

Yes Marijuana has health properties, Yes it is used in treating Nausea, Chronic pain, loss of appetite in HIV and Cancer patients. Also Multiple sclerosis and Seizures.

You don’t have to Bleach to Glow!

No, you are not toning, you are bleaching.
You know how I know?... I tone too! I have been toning for 5years consistently and I am still one of the blackest radiant people I know! Igbo too😉

Yes there’s a difference

Toning is great for your skin, if you are really toning!
No, toning isn’t meant to change your complexion.
In cosmetics, skin toner or simply toner refers to a lotion or wash designed to cleanse the skin and shrink the appearance of pores, usually used on the face.👇🏽
Toners can be applied to the skin in different ways: On damp cotton wool.
Toning (based on dermatologist's prescription) evens out uneven skin tone, corrects dark spots, discolorations and so on. Toning is actually part of a skin cleansing process because it benefits the skin.👇🏽

"So Dr, you want to disvirgin my 17yr old Daughter?"

The way she put it.🙄
"Not really Ma, to treat, we have to break her Hymen. She has IMPERFORATE HYMEN. That's why she hasn't menstruated. Absence of Hymen doesn't make her less a virgin, some are born w/o it🤷"
Mum did not look satisfied.

Her daughter was 17 and had never menstruated. Had never discharged or ovulated.

Did she have monthly cramps? Yes.
She also had a mass just below her abdomen which was burning.

Scan showed a fluid like collection.
Guess what it was....
You guessed right.
"Madam, on examination, we discovered your daughter has an imperforate hymen. This means the hymen is blocking the vagina completely and so, nothing coming from up can come down, including her menses and Ovulation discharge, hence the fluid collection

The last time I received a slap that sound, I was in SS2. It was mum.

This time my Slapper was 3. She was my patient. I was trying to examine her 'area'.

I looked up in shock, then I met her eyes. I shivered. One act of abuse had scarred yet another.😢

A typical clinic day.
In walked She, mum and aunt.
Her Shiny black skin and full natural hair caught my eye.
She was 3.
Didn't look sick at all.

"Hey there happy Girl,Welcome, What brings you to the clinic today?", I started with a smile. One that soon turned sour👇
What she said hit me and suddenly made me reach for my Zobo bottle.
All that Glucose would come in handy.

"Come again please", I said

"E rapeuru ya yesterday" (She was raped yesterday)

I looked at the Barbie.

"Who did that Ma'am?"

"My neighbour's son"

"Help Doc, My child is dying"
"What happened?"
What have you done so far?
"Everything o! I gave him palm kernel oil, I put spoon in his mouth, I gave anointing oil, even river Jordan water"
Me: "Nice, Science student. You just did everything to kill him"

About Convulsions,
It is scary to see your child have one, but note that children don't die from convulsions...
They instead die from aspiration of all the substances and items you put in their mouth.

Here's what you should do while you await medical attention.
Place your child on the floor on his or her side and clear away objects that are in close proximity.

Loosen tight clothing surrounding the head or neck.

Don't put anything in your child's mouth or try to stop the convulsion unless your pediatrician has told you what to do.
