I have chlamydia, guy i'm seeing doesn't. If i give him oral sex, can he get it from my mouth? (we won't have sex, no oral for me.. Just me to him)

Depends where the ch: Chlamydia was cultured from, if you have it genitally and not from a throat culture then no, but if would be the wise thing to refrain from any sex until you have has a test of cure, and if you had + culture and you had intercourse with him he needs to be treated anyway because sometimes his culture could be a false negative. ...Read more

Yes. Yes. No. Yes.: Yes, boyfriend does not have herpes 1 as an STD if he only has it in his mouth, and nothing genitally nor anally. Yes, herpes 1 that is only on a woman's genitals can only be spread from there (unless she also has oral herpes 1, but does not know it due to lack of oral lesions). No, herpes 1 cannot spread by kissing UNLESS fresh viruses are in that kiss. Yes, herpes can be spread when no outbreak. ...Read more

I been treated for chlamydia/ gonorrhea . My girlfriend wants to get pregnant, she doesn't have any of both! when can I start safely?

I been treated for chlamydia/ gonorrhea . My girlfriend  wants to get pregnant, she doesn't have any of both! when can I start safely?

Married: So u really think its a good idea to have a baby when you're not really committed to the relationship? The fact that you brought chlamydia in from someone else shows you're not serious. She wants to have the baby to tie you down since u been runnin around. Both of u need to stop because this would not be fair to the baby- she/he deserves a committed mom and dad. ...Read more

A sex partner told me he has pubic lice. Can I have them even if i don't see bugs or nits?

No itch =no lice: If you do not develop itching and don't see any lice you are not infected. However, if you do begin itching seek treatment quickly. Consider using some form of protection for sex. Many of the sexually transmitted diseases aren't as benign as lice. ...Read more

Can i get genital herpes from giving oral sex to a man? Could I have passed it on to my current partner who I have unprotected sex w and i got it?

Can i get genital herpes from giving oral sex to a man? Could I have passed it on to my current partner who I have unprotected sex w and i got it?

Yes: You could pick up HSV from giving oral sex to a man with an open lesion. The HSV would be on your lip so you would eventually get a fever blister. Then if you had an open lesion on your lip you could give it to your current partner. You also could transfer the virus from your hands that touched the man with active HSV to your own genitals - it takes open skin to open skin for transmission. ...Read more

I have bacterial vaginosis, can I give it to my boyfriend if he performs an oral sex act on me (goes down on me)?

I have bacterial vaginosis, can I give it to my boyfriend if he performs an oral sex act on me (goes down on me)?

Hold off for a while: No, you probably cannot infect your boyfriend. However, BV sometimes is triggered by oral sex, and oral bacteria may contribute to causing it. Therefore, oral sex might prlong your infection or make it worse, and it would be best to avoid it until you have been successfully treated. I trust you have been tested for STDs like gonorrhea and chlamydia, which are much more common in women with BV. ...Read more

I suffered from genital warts 2 years back and cured with treatment. Is it ok to have unprotected sex with my partner and would i infect them if i did?

I suffered from genital warts 2 years back and cured with treatment. Is it ok to have unprotected sex with my partner and would i infect them if i did?

Genital warts: You received treatment for your visible lesions, but may still have sub-clinical ones not identifiable with the naked eye. Men can undergo an aceto-wash test that can help reveal some genital lesions, but it is not "fool-proof" and I have never performed it in women. Best bet it to always assume that you could "infect" any partner, and should inform them/use "protection" at all times. ...Read more

Can you get crabs from a infected sex toy? I use somebody sex toy but i masturbate with my panties on so the sex toy didn't touch me it touch the outside of my panties...Can i still i get it?

Yes : Yes you can. Crabs are highly contagious and seem to find their way to pubic hair when close by. You can look for the crabs near on your pubic area, or the eggs. You may see small white dots or you may actually see them moving. Also you may have intense itching please see your doctor for treatment if necessary or consult your pharmacist for over the counter treatments. Best of luck. ...Read more

I was diagnosed with acute prostatitis can my wife get a infection or yeast infection through sexual intercourse? We do not use condoms

Maybe: This is most likely if the cause is trichomonas. If this does happen, you can get treated together and this will probably be a very good thing in the long run for eradicating the infection. The other prostatitis microbes aren't so catching. Was a microbe identified? ...Read more
