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.

Get the facts: Most people at your age have already met herpes simplex I, the virus that causes cold sores. Your physician can tell you whether you've got the virus on board -- if so, kiss to your heart's content. If not, kiss to your heart's content anyway.

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?

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

I'm 18 and just found out I'm 6 weeks pregnant 2 days ago. We already told my boyfriends parents but not mine I'm terrified. How should I tell them?

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

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 & he's better but didn't have a sore throat and my throat in the front has been sore for longer than 2 weeks?

My boyfriend was sick, I kissed him & he's better but didn't 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

Why do I get pressured lately on having a boyfriend and marriage? Knowing that both of my parents are in their 50's and I'm only 21?

Why do I get pressured lately on having a boyfriend and marriage? Knowing that both of my parents are in their 50's and I'm only 21?

Parental & Social: Pressures are things we all deal with as we develop our own personality and identity. Please consider their input but make your own decisions. Many people are happily married but being happy single is a very good option also. Above all, don't marry out of pressure, but marry out of mutual respect. Your parents care about your future will need to live your own life. Peace and good health. ...Read more

What happens if I kiss my boyfriend who's taking penicillin if im allergic to it?

What happens if I kiss my boyfriend who's taking penicillin if im allergic to it?

Probably: It would be unlikely to develop an allergic reaction from touching another person who has been taking an antibiotic that a person is sensitive to. With that said, there could be enough haptenated penicillin metabolites in bodily secretions to trigger a reaction in a highly allergic person. In other words, closed mouth kissing should be safe. ...Read more

I need advice because my boyfriend is being physically abused by his parents what do I do?

I need advice because my boyfriend is being physically abused by his parents what do I do?

Make a police report: You can't appease these people. You often can't get a victim to see that he needs to get out of an unacceptable situation, or even that there is anything wrong. This is a much better alternative than him simply running away. You need to do this, as these situations can end up as homicides or suicides. Be brave. ...Read more
