Cosmo LatinaWe all fight in relationships, but did you know there's actually a right way to do it? These tips will actually make your relationship stronger after an argument. By Anita Alma
Ditch These Words
"We need to talk." Nothing good usually follows that sentence, especially if you say it with major attitude. It will immediately put him on edge. Instead, start by letting him know you want to discuss "X" because of the way it made you feel.
Act Like You Want to Hear Side
Your body language says more than you think. Sit up straight, keep your hands clasped to avoid f lailing them around, look him in the eye, and nod to show you are listening. "If you're talking with your arms crossed, leaning back, or scowling, he will be on the defense from the start," says Rachel DeAlto, author of Flirt Fearlessly.

While teen pregnancy rates have declined steadily, sexually transmitted disease rates among California's youth ages 15-19 are increasing, says the California Family Health Council (CFHC). According to the latest data from the California Department of Public Health, teens and young adults have the highest rates of gonorrhea and chlamydia of all age groups in California.
"California is experiencing a near public health crisis with STD rates among teens rising to alarming levels," said Julie Rabinovitz, CFHC President. "By providing sexually active teens and their parents with the tools they need to prevent STDs and unintended pregnancy, we are hoping to move the needle in the right direction. We are thrilled that we now have the capacity to expand this valuable resource for teens in San Diego and FresnoRead More »from Should 12-year-olds Be Able to Order Free Condoms Online?

We've heard of peanut allergies, but... sperm allergies? A recent Good Morning America story had us talking. A woman developed a bizarre reaction (swelling, redness, etc.) after having sex with her husband. After several doctor visits, she learned she suffered from seminal plasma hypersensitivity, an allergic reaction to the proteins found in her husband's sperm.Shutterstock.com
We took this straight to practicing physician and women's health expert Dr. Raj (whom you've seen on Bethenny.com), and insisted she tell us what we need to know...Read More »from Could This Happen to Me?! 'Woman Allergic to Husband's Sperm'
Ask Dr. Raj: Could I Be Allergic to Sex?
Q. Is it common for women to be allergic to sperm (suffer from seminal plasma hypersensitivity)?
A. It is quite uncommon, although the true numbers are not really known.
Q. Can a woman be tested to find out if she's allergic to anything she would come in contact with during sex?
A. Yes, an allergist can run tests for a reaction to latex, other chemicals, and even your partner's sperm.

Well, this is interesting: Hands up if your idea of intimacy doesn't include stirrups and latex gloves - yeah, we know. But, while we prefer to keep the word "annual" to our gardening jargon, the yearly exam is a must-discuss when it comes to gyno health. So, you can imagine our delight when we heard this: apparently, the annual pelvic exam, dubbed the "bimanual," may not be as necessary as we thought.
Annual pelvic exams are typically used to screen for possibly cancerous changes and STIs (STDs for all you '90s kids). But, according to more and more doctors, a simple pee-in-cup and swabbing exercise is as effective, and significantly less invasive. The exams also increase the cost of medical care and aren't totally medically necessary if you're not symptomatic. Besides, abnormal results often cause alarm when there isn't any real reason for concern, leading to equally unnecessary surgeries and subsequent complications.

My wife is a wonderful mother, friend, and confidant. Over the years, I've witnessed her fix boo-boos, comfort crying babies, and make each child feel special. She is always attuned to the kids' needs and to mine. In addition, she is the go-to person when her family has a problem, a dedicated volunteer in our community, and a mentor to women and girls. I definitely hit the jackpot when I met her. She has inspired me to not only be a better father, but also a better human being. During our 15 year marriage, I've learned many things from my wife, but these have risen to the top as the most influential and the most valuable to me and to our marriage.

I remember the first time I thought of myself being divorced, tears rolled down my cheeks. I felt sorry for me. I was angry and disappointed.
There are always two sides to every story, so I'll avoid making personal comments about why I got divorced. In the most general terms, my ex-husband and I were either in disagreement and fighting about everything, or we just weren't communicating. We became strangers under the same roof, with nothing in common anymore.
Still, accepting that my marriage wasn't working was not an easy task, especially because we had children together. I went through periods of depression and desperation, without even having the time to stop and analyze what was happening to me. I was too busy trying to adapt to a new life as a single mom.
Eventually, I got through these dark periods, and came out of it realizing that, guess what? Divorce is not that bad at all. All our family members' lives have changed in the last several months, but today, I'mRead More »from Separation Isn't Desperation: Why Divorce is Not so Bad
