anti-depressants-sex-drive
Dear Emily,I’ve been on anti-depressants for years, and also have disabling period cramps, so my gynecologist has put me on a medication to stop my period entirely.

Think about the words “break up.” It’s called that because your relationship is broken…in a Humpty Dumpty kind of way. Meaning, it’s never going to be put back together again. But, if you think you’re one of the few couples that can break up and then get back together and live happily ever after, here’s how you should go about it. It’s going to be hard, ugly and ultimately might not even be worth it, though. So, don’t say I didn’t warn you, k? Read more
