Do I need PEP for protected sex with a unknown status person. Worried he may do high high risk behaviors but used condoms. Two times?

Do I need PEP for protected sex with a unknown status person. Worried he may do high high risk behaviors but used condoms. Two times?

Probably not: PEP decisions are made case by case, depending on details. For example, what do you mean by "may do high risk behaviors"? Also local frequency of HIV in various risk groups. With a heterosexual exposure plus condom for vaginal sex, I doubt PEP would be recommended. But you'll need to see a local HIV expert, or contact the local or state health department. ...Read more

Is kissing a high-risk behavior, low-risk behavior, or a no-risk behavior for contracting hiv? I'm a high school student and i'm taking a health & physical education course. I'm having a hard time finding the answer to this question.

Is kissing a high-risk behavior, low-risk behavior, or a no-risk behavior for contracting hiv? I'm a high school student and i'm taking a health & physical education course. I'm having a hard time finding the answer to this question.

According : According to the center for disease control (one of the best sources for accurate information): "it depends on the type of kissing. There is no risk from closed-mouth kissing. There is an extremely low-risk from deep, open-mouth kissing if there are sores or bleeding gums and blood is exchanged. Therefore, persons living with HIV should avoid this behavior with a non-infected partner." for the sake of your homework, i'd go with no-risk. Below i've attached the cdc website on HIV transmission. Maybe you'll get extra credit for specifying the no-risk vs. Low risk behaviors. ...Read more

If I had an emergency c-section with my first child does that mean I will be at high risk with a second?

I'm 40. husband and I want to have a 4th child. too old? Also, I take 1 mg of Klonopin (clonazepam) day for anxiety. My high risk ob said its fine. Do you agree?

I'm 40. husband and I want to have a 4th child. too old? Also, I take 1 mg of Klonopin (clonazepam) day for anxiety. My high risk ob said its fine. Do you agree?

Please clarify: Not sure if you mean your OB said it's ok to continue Klonopin (clonazepam) while trying to become pregnant and during the pregnancy or just while trying to conceive. I would defer to guidance of your OB as long as you trust and respect your doctor. That said, if you can manage on a lower dose through pregnancy with some relaxation strategies, that is worth trying. Best wishes for a healthy fourth child! ...Read more

If I have oral hpv high risk and I clean my childs pacifier with my mouth when a sink isn't available could I passed it to her? I

If I have oral hpv high risk and I clean my childs pacifier with my mouth when a sink isn't available could I passed it to her? I

No significant risk: I'm a little surprised to hear you have (confirmed?) oral infection with high risk HPV. Testing for oral HPV is rare and usually not recommended. But even if you have it, there is little if any risk to your child. It would make sense to not push your luck, i.e. to not "clean" her pacifier with saliva. Better to keep some alcohol hand cleaner handy (Purel and other brands) and use that. ...Read more
