How Can College Students Benefit from HerpAlert?

We all know how ubiquitous STD’s are, especially if you’re a college student. Nobody wants to be distracted by an STD diagnosis in the midst of studying for finals or writing a term paper, but ultimately your health should always come first. As a student, you have access to your school’s health center, where a number of nurse practitioners are available to treat whatever comes your way. However, not everyone feels comfortable going to a nurse to see if a sore on your lip or a bump on your groin is something more. For a variety of reasons that differ from person to person, we shy away from exposing ourselves to a stranger. Luckily, you can get checked out and treated from the privacy of your dorm room. All you need is a smartphone.

The Most Common Types of Sexually Transmitted Infections

The most common sexually transmitted infection that students across the country contract on college campuses is Chlamydia, and the second is HSV1 (oral herpes) and HSV2 (genital herpes). Chlamydia is one of the most diagnosed STI’s and also one of the most easily curable. In contrast, herpes is a virus, which lives in your body forever. Its symptoms can be so mild that you barely notice them. There are easily accessible antiviral medications, such as Valtrex, that treat and prevent herpes breakouts.

If you get a cold sore (oral herpes) in college, you should seek out a medical professional, but keep in mind, it’s not a life-changing diagnosis. It’s more common than you think. Roughly one out of every six Americans between the ages of 14 and 49 have herpes simplex virus, and most aren’t even aware of it! The virus spreads easily, and because symptoms can be so minor, students don’t realize if, or when, they’re contagious. If you’re sexually active, the odds of coming into contact with HSV1 or HSV2 are fairly decent.

Forget The STD Stigma With Online Guidance

Now, if you suspect you have herpes, you don’t need to worry about expensive doctor visits or prescription medication. Skip the line at the health center and forget about rehearsing the right things to say to a nurse, who has an infinite supply of pamphlets detailing how to practice safe sex. This is not to be mistaken as shrugging off the importance of using condoms and being honest with your partner or partners, but there’s an easier way.

With the rise of telemedicine, you can avoid the stress associated with any social stigma surrounding STDs and still have access to healthcare. If you suspect you might have a herpes related sore, visit www.HerpAlert.com and begin the physician diagnosis questionnaire. Say goodbye to making appointments, waiting rooms, and hospital garments with the easiest and fastest route to medical help at the tip of your fingers. Due to the nature of oral and genital herpes, time is of the essence. In order to minimize the outbreak and speed up the healing process, treatment should be started within 12 to 24 hours at the onset of symptoms.

The website will prompt you to upload photos of the area, describe your symptoms, and ask for medical history which is then reviewed by top-tier board-certified physicians. All your information goes through the website’s encrypted web servers, which are dedicated to securing every patient’s data. A doctor will get back to you within one to two hours of your submission, and if you’re positive for HSV, a prescription is called into your desired pharmacy so you can start treatment that day!

 

Founded by a leading dermatologist, our team is made up of top-tier doctors, across the country, who have a depth of experience diagnoses and treating a sexually transmitted diseases. Our mission is to remove the stigma associated with herpes by reducing outbreaks and making them as painless as possible. The moment you submit your photos for diagnosis, we get back to you quickly and immediately send a prescription to your local pharmacy. So you can stop the progression and get on with your life, whether that means finding Mr. Right, or Mr. Right Now.

Urban Transportation Issues and Electric Mobility

Mobility alternatives to cars are fast growing, as cities and people realize there are problems associated with traveling in the city that need to be solved. These problems include dense slow traffic, road safety issues and pollution.

The dense traffic in cities could be much improved by using smaller vehicles like electric bikes, mopeds, and scooters, as they have greater throughput—the number of vehicles that can move through a space over a given amount of time—than cars.

People often travel short distances in cities, including travel of one-to-two miles, which is a bit too far to walk but too short to warrant driving a car. In crowded areas, where there are many pedestrians crossing the street, etc., cars can cause road safety issues. Not to mention, transportation is one of the largest producers of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States.

With these issues in mind, many cities are pledging to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and reducing the number of gas-powered cars on the road would greatly help this goal.

The Benefits of Small Electric Vehicles For Mobility

Small electric vehicles can be great alternatives to gas-emitting cars in the city. In addition to having greater throughput than cars, they can often provide faster short-distance rides than cars during peak traffic times in cities. Since they are electric, they help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and also provide other soft benefits, such as providing a fun riding experience, exercise, and helping people feel more connected to their city.

Small electric vehicles, like electric bikes, can help a greater amount of people exercise. Riders can replace idle sitting in a car with riding a bike, and riders who may normally not feel fit enough to ride a bike their entire commute, or don’t want to sweat on the way to work, can take comfort in having the electric assist option.

Small vehicles can also help people feel more connected to their cities, as the riders can explore spots they’d normally miss while in a car, enjoy the feeling of being outdoors while riding, and be less isolated as they can see and interact with other people on the streets.

Sustainable Gems for Graduation Day

If a scene from the film Black Diamond comes to mind when you think about gems, you’ll be glad to know that this is not an image you need to associate with the pearl industry.

Most gemstones are non-renewable – the supply of gems like diamonds is finite and won’t be replaced in our lifetime, while many mining sites cause a lot of ecological damage.

But, the pearl industry is different.

Pearls: Nature’s Gems

Pearls are the only gems that are produced by living creatures; they are organic, created inside living mollusks. They’re also renewable – one mollusk can produce multiple pearls at a time and the mollusks themselves can also reproduce. It only takes a few years for pearls to form, in stark contrast with diamonds, which take between 1-3 billion years to be created.

Oysters are remarkably sensitive organisms, which makes it extremely important that the water and surrounding areas are clean and healthy, otherwise the pearls won’t grow. A pearl farmer who cares about the long-term health of his farming operation must use environmentally-responsible farming practices to produce high-quality pearls now, and for decades to come, unlike with other gemstones where the future of the environment is hardly a concern.

Formerly, pearls could only be found growing wild in nature, and they were extremely rare – only royalty and the extremely wealthy could afford them. But today, most pearls you can buy are cultured or produced on pearl farms of which about 95% are produced in China, which is also where our flagship product, Edison pearls are cultivated.

What Are Edison Pearls?

Edison Pearls are the brainchild of Zhan Weijian, president of Grace Pearls located in Zhuji, a town in the Zhejiang Province in east-central China. The first cultivated pearls were farmed successfully in 1916, admittedly of low quality, and over time the quality has improved tremendously and could even be compared to the quality of natural pearls. But Edison Pearls took the industry to a whole new level when they were introduced to the market in 2010.

What makes Edison pearls so unique is that these pearls are smooth with intense luster, they’re almost perfectly round, they come in sizes of up to ¾ of an inch and there are a wide range of different colors available such as: purple, pink, bronze, dark gold, and champagne.

When asked why he chose the name, Zhan Weijian said that “Thomas Edison, for all his intelligence, could not invent pearls or diamonds.”

The superior quality of Edison pearls put them in a class of their own. And what makes them even more remarkable is the fact that they are surprisingly affordable. Women throughout the world are now able to afford pearls of superior quality in any shape, size, and color they prefer.

The Home STD Test: 5 Massive Myths

Recent reports from the Center of Disease Control (CDC) show STDs are on the rise. With one in four college students currently having a sexually transmitted disease (STD), the need for regular testing on campus is now at an all-time high.

The stigma is real. Many students are hesitant to visit campus clinics with the thought of sitting in a waiting room among fellow classmates – unnerving. Additionally, the idea of being asked to share one’s sexual history with a stranger can understandably be just as uncomfortable.

This has led an increased number of university residents to seek alternate methods of testing that provide greater privacy. Conveniently, it’s easier than ever to screen yourself for many sexually transmitted infections now with a simple home STD test discretely mailed to your door.

Research has shown these at-home tests are doing a great job at encouraging more people to get screened. Yet, as with most things, there are skeptics. Let’s take a look together at many of the myths and misconceptions regarding home STD testing today.

MYTH #1: (FALSE)

At-Home Testing Isn’t Reliable

When you finish your home STD test and mail the sample in for screening, you can feel confident knowing the accuracy of your results is high caliber. (Make sure to look for a company with an accredited team of scientists and technologists who have been certified in all 50 states.)

MYTH #2: (FALSE)

It Takes Forever To Get Your Results Back

The faster you get your test results back, the better. It’s natural to have a little bit of nervousness after submitting your sample, and if you’re like most people, you’ll want to know your status as soon as possible. Rest assured, results are sent back quickly with samples processed in only one to five days after being received.

MYTH #3: (FALSE)    

Getting Tested At Home Must Be Expensive

The cost of an at-home STD test is quite comparable with the price of going to a clinic. Don’t forget to account for indirect costs related to the time and effort it takes to get there (missing class, getting gas, etc.). Typically, discounted prices are also offered on packages that include a full suite of tests.

MYTH #4: (FALSE)    

Testing Yourself Can Be Painfully Difficult

Testing yourself at home can actually be as simple as a minor pin prick on your finger and quick urine sample. Follow a few easy instructions and you’re good to go in just minutes. (Make sure the product you choose is backed by a diligent support team standing by to answer any questions you may have.)

MYTH #5: (FALSE) 

At-Home Testing Is Less Confidential

Campus clinics are known to keep your medical records on hand for years. With private at-home testing, you’re able to delete files at your discretion.

Starting The Conversation on STDs

Health professionals recommend speaking with your partner about getting tested sooner rather than later. Often enough though, it can be difficult to broach the subject with a boyfriend or girlfriend. Below are a couple of ideas on how to get the conversation going:

  • Suggest you both get tested together instead of asking your partner if they’ve been tested to make it feel like more of a collaboration, rather than an accusation.
  • Share an article on the subjects that you read with your partner and let them see for themselves exactly how high the statistics of infection are today.

Nearly 20 million new sexually transmitted diseases are contracted every year. Research shows that over half those cases are spread by younger adults below the age of 24. Students getting tested, and staying tested, has never been more important with the rising STD epidemic on campuses today.

Private iDNA is a leading at-home STD test that is simple to order online at college campuses nationwide; it’s CLIA/CAP accredited and certified in all 50 states with testing conducted in a state-of-the-art dynamic infectious disease laboratory. The mission behind the company is to increase screening rates by making it easier for people to get tested on their own time and their own terms.

Let’s Talk About Lube: Fiction Versus the Facts

Imagine, two people are about to have sex. One person asks their partner “Do you have lube?” The second person scrambles to find “lube” in their bathroom, only to come back with a bottle of lotion or a tub of coconut oil. “This is all I have.” If you have not experienced this yet, you probably will.

Lube is one of the most misunderstood and underrated sex aids. Lube is the BEST intimate tool we have at our disposal. Using lube during sex can make a world of a difference. It can make or break a sexual experience. Ask yourself if you would rather have a more enjoyable and satisfying sexual experience or the opposite? Yet, no one seems to want to talk about it!

As a sex educator in a feminist-owned sex shop in New York City, the mere suggestion of sex lube to a customer would get a negative reaction or defensiveness. “I get plenty wet on my own.” “Lube is only for old people.” “I do not need lube.” “I can get my partner plenty wet on my own.”

Here is a question for you, do you use Chapstick or lip gloss? When your lips are chapped, the natural inclination is to lick your lips. However, that only keeps your lips moist for a moment. Lip balm is necessary to keep your lips hydrated and protected. Think of lube in the same regard.

How to best use lube?

Here are a couple more ways to use lube. Add a few drops of lube inside the condom and greatly enhance sensations. Lube increases stimulation on the head of the cock and prevents the condom from breaking. With dental dams, put a few drops of lube on the side of the receiver. It will allow the dam to move easily and in harmony with the giver’s mouth and tongue. With the combination of the material of condoms, the vulva can often lose its natural moisture.

For anal sex, lube is mandatory, as this orifice does not self-lubricate. Bad friction plus no lube can often result in micro-tears to your delicate skin. OUCH! Sex should never be painful! Lube helps to eliminate the potential for discomfort. So while you may believe you don’t “need” lube, you should definitely want to get some.

Lotion, Vaseline, coconut oil may be more readily available to you in your dorm room. However, these products are not great substitutes for real lube. Now that you are more informed, it is the time to switch to a body safe lube that is designed specifically for sex like Amor Oral that offers a large variety of flavored lubes that taste great for oral and are pH neutral for intercourse!

Understand your partner’s needs

Women have varying amounts of natural lubrication. Above all, it is important to clarify that the lack of natural lubrication doesn’t suggest a person’s lack of arousal. When giving a blowjob or hand-job, lube will make increase sensations and enjoyable effects.

Moreover, many factors can affect moisture levels such as medications, stress from finals, caffeine and dehydration. There are parts of our bodies that do not self-lubricate such as the shaft of the penis, nipples and the anus. Communication is key. Always check with your partner. Be vocal about your wants and needs.

If you ever become bored with plain lube, I would recommend adding a fun element to the mix: FLAVORED LUBE!

Amor Oral flavored lubes

First of all, featuring a variety of delicious body-safe lubes, Amor Oral offers over 50+ flavors which are safe to consume and will not stain your sheets! Score! Amor Oral Lubes can be found on Amazon.com and are:

  • 100% edible, pH neutral and hypoallergenic for improved adult fun
  • Water based formula contains a balanced mixed of flavors and edible, food-grade ingredients
  • 100% Toy Friendly with only food-grade ingredients to improve lubrication and pleasure
  • American made

Amor Oral lubes not only tastes great but smells amazing too. Great sex engages all the senses. Put lube in the fridge for an hour and then pour it onto the body for temperature play. Add a blind fold (with consent of course) to add a bit of kink!

Flavored lubes are a safer alternative to using whip-cream or honey. Externally, these foods are fun to play with on the body. But can wreak havoc on your genitals. Flavored lube can be poured onto other parts of the body such as the thighs, butt, neck or nipples for some fun tongue and mouth action! Have fun, be safe, enjoy your sex life with Amor Oral.

 

By offering the world’s largest selection of flavored lube, Amor Oral is the leading provider of personal lubricant for monantic rendezvous and memorable night of passion. Extra yummy and professionally formulated using only pure quality food-grade ingredients our organic lubes are the yummiest and safest lubricant solutions for lovers.

Unleash Your Inner Genie Goddess This Year

College is stressful for anyone, and for women thinking about having your period, while studying for exams and rushing to your classes can be more emotionally stressful. Let alone, all the added emotions of being away from home, and living with a complete stranger can add up.

A Genie’s Dream is making it that much easier to get items shipped right to your dorm room. You don’t need to wait for Christmas to get gifts that make you feel like a Goddess.

Every girl needs a reminder of how amazing it is to be a woman. Most of us don’t associate our monthly cycles with creativity, and celebration.

A Genie’s Dream was created on the idea that woman are the most powerful when vulnerable, and the company wanted to showcase products that can help channel creative forces by curating brands that are good for your health and wealth. Also, by adding a little extra magic and TLC into our daily lives and routine.

A Genie’s Dream showcases products that are good for your mind, body and spirit. Empowering self love and self care.

Cycle of 3

A Genie’s Dream is all about empowering women and the individual. Behind each tube, there is a Cycle of 3: support for small businesses, repurpose tubes, and stories of individuals. They focus on having products that are handcrafted by women entrepreneurs, advocate a healthy environment by repurposing our sturdy tubes in many creative (and fabulous) ways, and we highlight the stories of the people behind the creation of A Genie’s Dream.

We aspire to create a movement to inspire women to unleash the creative spark within themselves to unleash their inner genie. It is a never-ending cycle of giving and sharing.

How Does the Subscription Work?

This monthly “tube” of gifts will be delivered right to your door and includes all things therapeutic to make that “time of the month” a pleasant one. The tube is delivered every 30 days, but it’s flexible to fit your schedule. It can be paused, changed or canceled; no questions asked.

A Genie’s Dream has two enchanted cylinders to choose from. The LADY Tube “themed” Subscription features everything sparkly, and imaginative and made with love such as:  organic tampons, organic pads, unicorn make-up brushes and jewelry, Each month has a fun imaginative theme to unleash the inner child within us all.

The Goddess Subscription is all Organic, Cruelty Free! Each month you will receive organic tampons, organic soaps, handcrafted candles local teas, essential oils, organic chocolates, biodegradable candies, and sustainable tubes; we also include healing crystals to help you embrace your inner spiritual goddess. Each month showcases a different goddess to unleash the warrior within.

Why Does this Box/Tube Stand Out?

This company promotes brands and products from savvy female entrepreneurs that care about the planet. For example: in The Goddess box/tube you can find Lollipops, made from flowers with a seed bearing- biodegradable stick, so you can plant your own flower or you can find handcrafted candles only made on Full Moons that channel the cycle of the moon to bring luck and love to you. You will also find fun Bath bombs and Shower Steamers that are made with biodegradable glitter by @purringbuddah. Each bath bomb is organic, vegan, and cruelty free.

Products, that are good for your health and wealth? Yes, please. We are loving A Genie’s Dream. Not only do they care about the products you put in your body, but they also care about the environment.

It truly is the gift that keeps on giving. It really is a never-ending cycle of women encouraging women to unleash their potential. Instead of letting our natural, bodily cycle bum you out every month, you can use it as an opportunity to celebrate you and all your creative ambitions.

A note from A Genie’s Dream founder, Allison Gondoli: “A Genie’s Dream has changed the way we view our natural bodies. Instead of shaming ourselves that we are on our period, we are celebrating it! I had a vision of creating a product that inspires women to unlock their imagination when they are feeling vulnerable. I also wanted to shed light on the products we use monthly that are good for our mind, body, and spirit. A Genie’s Dream is not only a brand, it’s a community of women helping women, who create a lifestyle and a conscious way of living.”

Use the discount code CollegeNews to get 30% off your first time order!

A Genie’s Dream was founded upon the idea that women deserve to feel comforted and good about themselves, even during a sad and vulnerable state.  Our mission is to unveil your inner genie goddess. No matter what time of the month it is, your gift is our command. Our monthly subscription will ease your pains and worries while putting a smile on your face. Relax and take a revitalizing ride on this magnificent journey.

Alternatives to Help You Overcome Exam Anxieties

It seems that finals hit us out of nowhere every semester. One minute we are focused on getting assignments done and keeping up with day-to-day expectations for each of our classes, and the next we realize that deadlines for exams and projects have crept up on us. It’s easy to fall prey to the anxiety that comes with this workload that we thought we had more time to plan for, but luckily we came up with some solutions to combat the stresses of wrapping up your semester.

Avoid all-nighters like the plague

While it may seem tempting to drink a pot of coffee and study all night, research actually shows that our minds retain information more efficiently on a full nights’ sleep. What we suggest instead is to delegate blocks of time for studying and prioritize taking care of yourself by allowing yourself to rest. Taking breaks is key, and if you can ensure that your mind is in the best possible condition to survive an exam, you are far more likely to succeed.

Explore natural approaches to self-care

No matter how prepared you are for finals week, we understand that pre-exam jitters still exist. To keep you feeling at your very best, we highly recommend exploring the possibility of implementing CBD into your daily regime—Populum is a favorite of ours. Orange-flavored, full-spectrum, and offering a 30-day risk-free trial, Populum offers an introductory CBD experience that feels safe, approachable, and exciting to take every day.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help

Whether it be from a professor or a classmate, there is no shame in admitting that you don’t understand something. If a topic isn’t super clear to you in your notes, remember that it is an admirable thing to ask for clarity on something—it shows that you care and are willing to learn and master the content you’re studying. Perfection doesn’t exist, and your future exam-taking self will thank you for asking questions.

Wishing everyone the best of luck on finals week!

We believe you deserve better, and we’re here to change the landscape of modern self-care. Populum is a collective of premium hemp CBD products designed to be a part of your daily wellness ritual.

Boost-Your-Brain-With-Nootropics

Boost Your Brain With Nootropics

Looking for a safe alternative to Adderall without the nasty side effects? You might have heard the word nootropics before, but what exactly are they and where can I get them?

What are nootropics?

Nootropics are synthetic compounds that improve the cognitive abilities of healthy individuals. In their basic state, they’re powders, but we sell them in capsule form.

Nootropics are not medicines: medicines bring you back to health when you’re sick, whilst nootropics help you improve when you’re healthy.

Given the unique effect profile of each nootropic compound, and given the variation in people’s brain chemistry, individuals can use different nootropics for different purposes and outcomes.

What are the best nootropics for studying?

Motivation and concentration can often be fleeting and fickle, and whilst nootropics can never replace a disciplined workflow, they can give you a substantial boost towards getting your critical tasks done, and getting them done well.

For long periods of concentrated cognitive effort, such as study, revision, essays, and other time-consuming and mentally demanding tasks, longer lasting nootropics such as Adrafinil, Piracetam and Phenylpiracetam are ideal.

For short periods of intensive cognitive load under high pressure, such as exams or public speaking, nootropics can also provide a controlled peak of sustained mental performance.

Short-duration, high power nootropics such as Aniracetam and Noopept can provide exactly the edge you need. These zone-out distractions and fuel your cognitive processes, enhancing and ensuring mental performance for the most critical of tasks.

Who are we?

We believe that nootropics are a powerful tool for the future of productivity and wellbeing. We see cognitive enhancement as part of a tentative next step in the ongoing process of human improvement. It’s our goal to create a healthy culture of nootropics usage, in which cognitive health is not taboo but recognised as an essential aspect of human capability.
