Learn the facts: There are dozens of different strains of HPV and everybody has a few of them. Some cause common warts, some put you at risk for cancer of the sex organs, and these cancers can be managed fairly easily if you stay alert. The sexual ones are transmitted sexually. Your kids need to be hugged. Your parents need to be hugged. And you deserve the happiness of being a family man. ...Read more

We haven't had sex but we wanted to & now I'm afraid to even kiss him or someone else.

Is it still OK to perform oral sex to my boyfriend?  
If I k

Probably safe: Just a positive blood test for HSV1, right? Without any symptoms of oral or genital herpess? If so, there is little risk to your partner. 20-50% of adults in the US have postive HSV1 tests and most part don't transmit the virus to anyone. If you ever have a possible outbreak (an otherwise unexplained oral or genital sore), don't expose your partner at that time. Otherwise don't worry about it. ...Read more

My boyfriend was sick,i kissed him & hes better but didnt have a sore throat and my throat in the front has been sore for longer than 2 weeks ?

See your doctor: Since it has been going on for more than 2 weeks, yes, get to your doctor for further workup. Most viral sources of pharyngitis (sore throat) will resolve within 2 weeks. I have seen them go longer, but again, most will resolve by then. Your doctor will at a minimum offer some ideas on how to treat the sore throat regardless of cause. ...Read more

My boyfriend had mono from his ex gf  a year ago and we've been together for 5 months and im scared to kiss him ? Woulld i catch it ?

Relax: Mono can shed from oral secretions for years after a primary infection, but after 5 months you have had plenty of exposure.If you were going to get it from him you probably would have by now.Many kids get it in early childhood and it goes by like a simple viral illness. You may already be immune. ...Read more

One approach: might be for you and your boyfriend to speak together to your parents. The best way to tell them is to just come right out and let them know that you are pregnant. The longer you avoid this - the more it complicates your situation. ...Read more
