STDS: Five stds are potentially deadly, not just hiv. I try in my practice to have frank, open and honest conversations with my patients about the risks of stds.

I feel that all sexual beings must know this. ...Read more

Doctors and Sex: I am sorry to hear this. But, we have to tread lightly when we talk about sex. One does not usually go to the doctor to learn how to orgasm. We are to have no opinion on when, where, or with whom you are sexual. But, given your age you may want your Gynecologist to do an exam to make sure everything is normal anatomically. There is a book about females and orgasm that I often recommend: ...Read more

Can using Ph balance products for awhile then not using around the time you change sexual partners cause BV?

Can using Ph balance products for awhile then not using around the time you change sexual partners cause BV?

Female hygiene: No, probably not. Your body is made to balance its own pH in a natural way. You don't need to use any store-bought products at all. Gentle soap and water is all you need, and some women find that even soap is too irritating. BV is strictly overgrowth of normal vaginal bacteria. Women can get it even if not sexually active. It's easy to treat, so see a doctor for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

Could the use of a strong fabric softener cause an isolated incident of bacterial vaginosis? I have only  been with 2 sexual partners my entire life.

No: Bacterial vaginosis is a mild infection of the vagina caused by bacteria being out of balance. Normally, there are a lot of good bacteria and some bad bacteria in the vagina.

Logically : Logically the partner who ejaculated inside of you is the most likely father in this situation, however there is still a chance he is not. Your doctor will be able to tell you the date you likely conceived based on your last menstrual period and your first ultrasound. Hopefully this information will help you determine who the father is. If you are unable to do this then you will have to wait until dna testing can be done. If your doctor recommends a amniocentesis for other reasons, and you go ahead with the test, dna testing for paternity can be done this way. Best of luck. ...Read more
