Uncertainty: Only one episode of sex encounter and sometime unluckily you may get pregnant and your chance to be HPV positive depened on your sexual partner if he is one night stay and casual partner to all strangers. If you has any complaints days later and you should see your Gyn. Hope you learn a lesson and be careful with your choice.

If a woman has a sex change operation and becomes a man, can she still get breast cancer?

Breast ca: Yes. Both men and women get breast cancer. The shutting off of the ovaries will decrease the estrogen production but the testosterone shots have their own issues. Regardless, the risk is still there.

Can a man on immunosuppressant cause their female partner to have urinary tract infections after sex?

Yes: Vaginal intercourse is a risk factor for the development of utis in all women because of the close proximity between the urethral opening and the anus. Women can decrease this risk by practicing good hygeine and urinating as soon as possible after sex. Having an immunosuppressed partner, however, does not confer any additional risk.

A 24-year-old member asked:
If I have oral herpes (hsv-1) and I received oral sex from my partner who kissed me, do I have genital herpes?

No: Hsv-1 is oral herpes and hsv-2 is genital herpes. It is possible to have hsv-1 in the genital area and vice versa. Hsv1 infections in the genital area are usually milder than hsv2 infections. Without viral culture, HSV 1 cannot be differentiated from HSV 2 based on exam alone. Therefore, if you are concerned about an outbreak, see your doctor for a proper diagnosis.

Is giving your child gardasil HPV vaccine kind of like giving them permission to have sex?

Not in my opinion: You need to discuss that with your child and their doctor, it is to prevent hpv when they do have sex which hopefully won't be until they are older which depends on you and her !
