Highly reliable: This test is highly reliable, and it sounds like you were at low risk for HIV anyway. For sure you aren't infected. Do your best to stop worrying about it and stop testing.

Dr. Nurit Winkler

No: Unprotected intercourse can put you at risk of sexually transmitted diseases as well as unwanted pregnancy. Especially with irregular periods it is difficult to estimate when are you ovulating and what are the most “fertility days” in your cycle.
A 35-year-old member asked:

My friend insists that I should perform oral sex on her. Is this hygienic if I have bad gums?

Dr. Charles Kattuah
Dentistry 23 years experience
Gums vs. hygiene?: If by stating you have bad gums that you have untreated periodontal disease caused by poor oral hygiene and lack of dental care then you may be harboring many potentially harmful organisms in your mouth and will likely transfer them to her when doing the act. If by bad gums you mean that they are receding yet you have good oral hygiene and get regular dental care then you should be fine.

Depends: Stress fractures are problematic mainly because they can be difficult to diagnose. As such, they may be initially under treated, thereby prolonging disability.
