Dr. Oz, how do I prevent an allergic reaction during sex?
DR. OZ: I got to say a couple things that I think you ought to start doing. The first is if you take aspirin or one of those non-steroidals, sometimes will actually make it worse. And there are certain foods that you notice that make it worse that's celery, fish some of these things actually will make it worse cause they get into your sweat.
Now a couple little tips - you can lie on your back and not do much motion right that's one way of having sex. Histamines is a great idea. You can do it in a cold room which is a turn off for the guys sometimes but it will keep you cool. And that's probably the most important thing. The less you sweat the less you'll shrivel up a little bit but you can still get an erection.
It's probably not gonna get better until you stop doing things that break sweats. Having sex is so important to your well being as a couple and to your over all health that you got to fight your way through it and you can. The only thing that makes me all worried about is when you say you get short of breath. So you ought to have one of those epipens near you just in case. Just keep it around because if you getting short of breath one day you really, really doing it and you're hanging from the rafters. You might actually need that. God Bless you.
Suze, is 5 dollars enough to leave my child from the tooth fairy?
SUZE ORMAN: I would not give them anything cause in a very strange way, you are rewarding them for loss...I have a really hard time about attaching everything to money. Tooth to money. Everything is about money. It doesn't have to be, you know? So give them something else. Do something else, but I wouldn't be attaching it to money.
Dr. Oz, is it true that sex drive decreases after menopause?
DR. OZ: Well it's not for everybody, but on average, yeah, it'll decrease, because not just the estrogen decreases when you go through menopause, but your testosterone does too, and the testosterone drives libido.
You know there's lots you can do about it. Any type of people - one of the things that makes women heavy when they go through menopause is they start to wanna make estrogen from other sources, so they make for fat cells cause fat cells make estrogen. So if you could eat the right kinds of fats, that could help. Make sure your thyroid's in tact, make sure your iron levels are in tact. There are things you could do to keep your libido where it is. And by the way, you might have a huge libido at 49 and it's a little bit less at age 50.
