Transgendered: There is nothing in your file to indicate why a man would want to take oral contraceptives. Are you asking because you are transgendered and want to change genders? If you are not asking because you want to become a female then the answer is no. There is no reason to take estrogen and progresterones if you are a man. Birth control pills would not be used in a man.

A 21-year-old member asked:

Is testosterone treatment for aging men comparable for hormone replacement therapy for menopausal women?

Yes: Having been in this situation, i can tell you that balancing out hormones in men is just as important as doing so for women. Men lose their sex drive, become Insulin resistant, lose their vitality. I'll post a page later that describes my own personal treatment success. I feel great at almost 52 years of age.

Depends : The timing is crucial here. Is the sore throat immediate? Next day? Condoms? Rough or gentle oral sex? Most likely it's not gonorrhea. But it is best to be safe. Did the guy ever have gc? Did he have other std's? If so, you should be checked.

Theoretical: This is talked about much more than it really happens. But to be on the safe side you can use condoms as a back up while you are on the antibiotics.

Change antibiotic: Amoxicillin is ok, but Augmentin (Amoxicillin plus clavulanate) is better or clindamycin. You could also have a viral infection that could be causing the fever as well. Add Motrin or tylenol (acetaminophen) for the fever.

It's possible!: If you and your husband don't want to have another baby right away, don't have unprotected sex. You can get pregnant after delivering a baby, before having a first period! most couples don't want to have two babies so close together. Ask your doctor about getting a pregnancy test before getting a birth control shot, and be certain to tell your doctor that you have been having unprotected sex.
