Chlorine Kill Pathogens Cause Candidiasis
Sperm: No, you can't get pregnant from a swimming pool. Sperm ejaculated outside the human body likely only survive a few minutes. Ejaculate or seminal fluid dries out very quickly when outside the human body, once it is dried the sperm die almost immediately. Dissipated into pool water, a similar outcome would occur. ...Read more
Not from tap water: Many things are possible in life. The chances of catching brain-eating amoeba from tap water in the U.S. is so unlikely that the answer is "no". If the water's chlorination or disinfection became inadequate, it's possible that Naegleria could survive in that water. The level of chlorination should remain high enough all the way to one's tap, as Naegleria cysts are somewhat resistant to chlorine. ...Read more
Very effective.: Chlorine compounds are widely used to kill bacteria and disinfect surfaces. Examples include treating water, washing fruit and vegetables and disinfecting food contact surfaces. Chlorine is usually combined with inorganic compounds, such as sodium or calcium, to produce hypochlorites, which are effective disinfectants. Chlorine mixed with sodium is a liquid bleach (sodium hypochlorite naocl). ...Read more

Sperm in: chlorinated water won't live long at all. Don't worry, if someone ejaculates in a swimming pool - the sperm won't swim over to a female and impregnate her. However, if you are engaging in sexual intercourse while in a swimming pool - don't expect the chlorine to prevent pregnancy. ...Read more
I got tap water up my nose. Can Naegleria Fowleri survive in tap water? Or would the chlorine kill it?
I'm wondering if i fingered a girl in a hot tub & she had an STD will the water or chlorine kill the std?
Does chlorine in tap water kill Naegleria Fowleri? I get water up my nose when showering. I heard you can get PAM from tap water.
You heard wrong: Chlorine kills Naegleria, but even unchlorinated tap water probably never transmits it. All cases are acquired in warm water outdoors, typically in stagnant lakes or pools, mostly in the southern US. Usually there are under 10 cases each year in the entire country. This is an extraordinarily rare infection that you shouldn't worry about if you don't swim in such places. ...Read more
Probably not: Superficial infections of skin and mucosal membranes by Candida causing local inflammation and discomfort are common. The pain and discomfort would be more related to the skin area, and would be distinguishable from true muscle and joint pain of the "neck, back and shoulder" I assume that you are referring to. If you ant to know the true cause of your issues, see the Dr for an evaluation. ...Read more
I M 22 VIRGIN.Does getting vaginal candidiasis frequently cause infertility? Is it due to exercising alot in gym?
No: Candidiasis is not something you catch. It is commonly related to antibiotic exposure or diabetes as an overgrowth of normal yeast already present. Most of the time the diagnosis is made by DR lacking in nuanced knowledge of intertrigo and other genital events related to exercise and sexual activity. Answer to your question requires much more detail about it. How have you been treated? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
