Is it possible for you to get aids from having multiple sexual partners and none of them are infected?
STDS: Five stds are potentially deadly, not just hiv. I try in my practice to have frank, open and honest conversations with my patients about the risks of stds. I want them to know which ones are of higher risk; which ones have a vaccine for; and how often to test when one is sexually active. Stds can, in general, be avoided with vaccinations and condoms. I feel that all sexual beings must know this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
