Where can I get an answer to an embarrassing question?

Have an embarrassing question you wouldn't even ask your best friend? Find out where you can get an answer.


Step 1
If you feel a bit too shy to ask your GP a question regarding something sexual or very personal, steer clear of advice given in certain magazines and websites, as the information is not always reliable. Grapevine advice is also often unreliable.

Step 2.
Go to the expert page and choose the expert you think could answer your question best.

Step 3.
Go to the forum of that particular expert. Type in the word that describes your problem best into the 'search archive' section. Read the questions and answers that come up.

Step 4.
If your question has still not been answered, post a question to the expert concerned. This is quite anonymous. Wait for a reply.
