Q. I sometimes use my boyfriend’s razor. Is it safe?

A: Owlright now. If your boyfriend your man has cold sores, warts or hepatitis B or C, the virus could very well be living in his razor. And, conzequently when you use it, the viral villains can comfortably invade your bloodstream from shaving. Wait wait, there’s more. Hepatitis B and C, which just by the way can easily slip into your body via sex, needn’t necessary produce outside symptoms. So, you or your guy could be unknowingly infected.  Haha. Funny thought. To play it safe, avoid using any items that could harbor small amounts of his blood also, ( wait for it) including toothbrushes and nail clippers.

“Therefore”, there’s a lot of risk involved. So why not date a rich guy who can buy you lots of razors. Nice idea, isn’t it?

Q: Why do I get insane cravings when I’m PMS-ing? It makes me feel like a pregnant woman when I tell my friends that I’m craving for chocolates BECAUSE I’m in that phase of the month. Amma, it’s freaking me out. Please help.

A: Now you need to take a deep breathe, not once but twice (or thrice) and blame what the learned call the “brain chemical serotonin”, a natural mood stabilizer, levels of which plunge during the the days before menstruation. And as a result of this, your body becomes this stubborn *bad word* which desires certain foods, particularly those high in carbs, to help pump up the serotonin supply. Now let me come to “why chocolates?”. The thing here is that many women tend to reach out for nutritionally deficiently high-fat carbs like ice cream and cookies. They make the levels wavy because they first boost and then quickly sink the levels of the chemical, leaving you jonesing for more of the same junk. So munch on low fat complex carbs and you’ll be fine. Those “pretzels” and “whole-grain crackers” will satisfy your cravings for sure. AND, they’re easily available in every Indian household, now aren’t they? Lawl Lawl. This is amma saying, good bye and have a ball.
