Yes: First, make sure you've had an ultrasound done to sure no varicocele. No smoking, pot, or hot tubs. Try something like proxeed which is over the counter.

There's Rx, need f/u: Hiv may not be the death sentence it once was in the early 1980's (bad memories of that), due to reasonably effective medical regimens, it is still a potentially life threatening disease. You should get tested (anonymously), and followed by a specialist in HIV (gnerally an infectious disease (id) specialist). Need to practice safe sex (they can explain in detail). If preg, coordinate id w/ob.

If my boyfriend does not ejaculate into me during intercourse, can I still get chlamydia?

Dr. James Ferguson
Pediatrics 46 years experience
Yes: Throughout sexual activity there is a transfer of secretions between partners. The ejaculation may be a "final push" of material for the male, but contaminated fluids may pass long before that moment. Condoms, spermacides, lubricants or genital wash before or after intercourse may slow but not prevent transfer of this germ.

What herbal medicine is suggested to increase cd-4cells and decrease viral load for HIV patients?

1 doctor answer1 doctor weighed in
Dr. Joel Gallant
Infectious Disease 36 years experience
None: There are no herbal medicines that have ever been shown to have these effects. People tried them all in the 80's and early 90's, before we had good HIV treatment. They didn't work, and many people died.
