Financial Stress Affecting Sex Life

I'm having trouble making ends meet. With the holidays coming up, it seems like all my partner and I talk about is money. Our sex life is nonexistent. I really want to reconnect, de-stress and forget about all this money stuff. Any advice?

Uncomfortable Talking About Sex

Sex was absolutely a forbidden topic when I was growing up. I'm still not comfortable with it. I'm single and in my late 40s. Anything I can do to be more open to sex when I'm dating?

I'm 32 years old and have been diagnosed with endometriosis, which is interfering with my ability to get pregnant. I've been reading about the influence of free radicals in endometriosis. Can you explain what this is?

Post Bariatric Surgery Diet

I had bariatric surgery four months ago. I eat lots of protein, but my hair is falling out, and I don't have room for vegetables and fruit. However, I do take a liquid vitamin and calcium. What type of foods should I be eating?
