Not certain: In the mid-2000s it was suggested Nitric Oxide exposure may reduce male fertility; paradoxically, at the same time mouse studies suggested Nitric Oxide might enhance or prolong female fertility! there are several small studies published in mid-level medical journals.

Baby's health: Rh factor typically does not affect fertility, but it can affect a woman's secondary and beyond pregnancies if she is rh negative and her partner is rh positive. The baby inherits the positive trait and those rh+ proteins can get in the mother's blood. Her body then makes antibodies against this protein. The next time she gets pregnant, the antibodies can attack the fetus. Rhogam shots can prevent. ...Read more
Can fingering yourself lead to HIV? I didn't have any contact with a HIV+ person or there bloodily fluids. Could you answer in very convincing way :)
What would convince?: Forgive my frankness. This has been asked and answered. Your question is like asking whether you can get pregnant without contact with a man or with semen. If someone has told you that enjoying your body like any other adult is dangerous or unclean, that person isn't your real friend. If you cannot be rid of these obsessive thoughts, your physician can recommend ways for you to find help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can Alcohol lead to false Negative Hiv tests when tested using Rapid -3rd generation testing Method?
Possibly: Scabies in and of itself is a fairly easily treatable infection, however, in HIV + population, especially those who have aids, the immune system may be seriously compromised to fight the mite and the infection that is setting in due to the inflammation it is producing.

You don't worry "what if" touch yourself causes pregnancy, I hope. Tell your mind to stop laying tricks on you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
