Can masturbation cause hiv?

Can masturbation cause hiv?

No: Most masturbation is done alone, so is safer than sexual activities done with other people. HIV is not "caused". HIV is "caught", which means a person has to "catch" it from another person. Masturbating alone is safe because one cannot catch diseases from himself. ...Read more

Everyday I doing 4 time masturbation. In my home and it caused hiv+?

Everyday I doing 4 time masturbation. In my home and it caused hiv+?

It did not: Can you clarify? If you believe you gave yourself HIV by enjoying your body, you are terribly, horribly misinformed. I'm sorry that there's such misinformation in the world and I hope you will get with your physician or with us to clarify what is really happening to you. You have my sympathy and I hope you will get this straightened out. ...Read more

Hi there doctor I have been masturbating for almost 6 years and I cant stop it but what I am worried about is could it cause HIV and hope you respond.

Not harmful: HIV or other germs are not created out of thin air. People get HIV or other STDs only from another person, usually by unprotected sex. Second, unless overtly injurious, masturbaion will not cause any physical harm, no matter how frequent or how long it goes on. But if you cannot get past your anxiety about it, or if so often it is interfering with normal life, discuss with a doctor or counselor. ...Read more

I am ejaculating daily but I don't watch pron neither masturbate. I have HIV negative. It is continued since the forthnight.

You're a MAN!: Congratulations on growing up. At your age, this is natural for many guys. Anyone who tells you otherwise is someone who is deceiving you for superstitious reasons. At this age, almost all your peers are masturbating and there is no health reason that you shouldn't. Think about that one special person in your future rather than internet trash. If Dad's a reasonable guy, talk with him. ...Read more

I have a habit of mastribate. Iam doing this from the last ten years onwards but present iam getting hiv symptoms will I get hiv from masturbation?

No, but why...: Would you specify the symptoms which have led you to worry about having HIV symptoms? Without sexual contact, you would not contract HIV from personal self masturbation. But any overindulgence may in time induce its negative impact to personal functionality & productivity as described in http://formefirst. Com/eNewsletter05.html. Best wish... ...Read more

Can you get hiv by masturbating in toilet?

Can you get hiv by masturbating in toilet?

No: HIV comes from direct contact with infectious secretions. It's totally an old wives tale that these germs are harboring on toilet seats, waiting to infect you. That being said, we'd all appreciate if you masturbate in private and not in public restrooms. That strategy should make everyone happier. Totally okay to enjoy yourself, but keep it private - a child could be in the adjoining stall. .. ...Read more

Can I get hiv...By masturbating daily myself??? am verymuch tensed...plz tell mee the solution

No risk, no worries: You can only get HIV by intimate contact (unprotected sex, sharing drug injection equipment, etc) with someone already infected with it. Masturbation cannot give you HIV or any other infection. Masturbation is perfectly healthy, except in rare cases when it is so frequent or compulsive it is interfering with your life and happiness. ...Read more

Is masturbation perfectly safe to both men and women doing it alone?? From stis and HIV?

Is masturbation perfectly safe to both men and women doing it alone?? From stis and HIV?

Yes: You will not contract a sexually transmitted disease from enjoying your body. It will also not make you an unfit parent / spouse, a sexual cripple, fat, stupid, hairy, infertile, bald, blind, demented, or any of the other things that you may have been told. A couple of the cults make stuff up to frighten young people -- if you've been warned of "dangers", you should resent having been lied to. ...Read more

If an HIV person masturbated towel unknowingly used to clean our penis may spread HIV?

No: Arun, you're a grown man now. These concerns are unrealistic -- and truth be told, so is the scenario. Who in the world would do something like that? If someone is telling you, "This is how I got HIV", that person is probably not telling you the truth. Stop troubling yourself, practice basic common sense and good hygiene, and remember that experince shows casual contact doesn't spread HIV. ...Read more

Statistically, Is there anyone infected with HIV by Masturbation?

Absolutely not: Your question concerns me very much. Enjoying your body is normal and harmless. It's something a young man needs to do in order to stay comfortable and able to focus, and to prepare him for adult roles. It cannot possibly give you HIV. You list yourself as having "HIV" and "AIDS"; if you are truly infected and this is not just a terrible fear, you got it in some other way. ...Read more
