Had a bacterial infection. Now I have pimples near my clitoris. Any correlation? No new sexual partners as well.

Had a bacterial infection. Now I have pimples near my clitoris. Any correlation? No new sexual partners as well.

Herpes? Yeast?: "Pimples" in the genital area often is herpes; or maybe a yeast infection? Many monogamous people get herpes, either because of recurrence of a longstanding infection that previously was asymptomatic; or because of new transmission even though both partners are faithful. See a doctor ASAP; diagnosis is most accurate before lesions start to heal. Good luck! ...Read more

I have had some sexual partners and I have never orgasmed I have tried Clitoras stimulations like vibrator but cause I cant enjoy sex because I cant?

I have had some sexual partners and I have never orgasmed I have tried Clitoras stimulations like  vibrator but cause I cant enjoy sex because I cant?

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

Are newly HIV infected people by law require to inform past sexual partners that they may or may not have infected?

Are newly HIV infected people by law require to inform past sexual partners that they may or may not have infected?

Depends: Laws vary by state, but this is something that obviously can't be enforced, since the patient has to provide names. People diagnosed with HIV are encouraged to notify former partners, which can also be done anonymously through the health department. Disclosure to current partners is more straightforward, and in some states can be done without consent of a patient who refuses to disclose. ...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.

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. The good types help prevent the overgrowth of the bad types. With bacterial vaginosis, there are not enough good bacteria and too many bad bacteria. Women do not need to have sex to have bacterial vaginosis. ...Read more

Assuming the high risk to female sexual partners of uncircumcised men should men not always wear a condom?

Assuming the high risk to female sexual partners of uncircumcised men should men not always wear a condom?

Here are some ...: There is no practical /clinical necessity for uncircumcised men to always wear condom for sex as long as keeping up good topical hygiene with no eruptions or rashes. But, still remember all GU-, GI-, and respiratory tract harbor their pertinent resistant bacteria to coexist with their hosts - our bodies. So, keep up healthy lifestyle without overindulgence / obsession as foundation of healthcare.. ...Read more

Is there any way to get STD's if both you and your partner have had no previous sexual partners/don't currently have STD's?

Is there any way to get STD's if both you and your partner have had no previous sexual partners/don't currently have STD's?

Nope: STDs don't appear out of nowhere. They have to be caught from an infected sex partner. However, there are some infections that are not sexually acquired, but which can then be transmitted to a partner. In that way, an apparent STD can appear in a monogamous couple. Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV1) is an example. Also hepatitis B, which could be caught by blood exposure then sexually transmitted. ...Read more

My husband and I have never had any other sexual partners, but my last pap smear showed hpv. Further testing showed hpv-16. How is this possible?

My husband and I have never had any other sexual partners, but my last pap smear showed    hpv.  Further testing showed hpv-16.  How is this possible?

Stop worrying: I'm not satisfied that even the "bad" strains of hpv are always transmitted sexually. And this is not a helpful line of inquiry. You love one another, and have promised to be together for the rest of your lives. Don't let this be a cause of suspicion, and remain vigilant for the cancer risk to you both, and things will be good. I wish more people would save themselves for that one special person. ...Read more

Hetero male HPV questions: Should I tell my previous sexual partners for their safety? Or, would this just induce unnecessary anxiety? I've only had 3

Hetero male HPV questions: Should I tell my previous sexual partners for their safety? Or, would this just induce unnecessary anxiety? I've only had 3

Please Inform: I would advise you tell your previous partners about your HPV status. Certain types of HPV can cause multiple forms of cancer (Cervical Cancer) in women if they are not screened frequently for them. If they know about your status, then they could get an HPV test or Pap smears done to determine if they contracted HPV. For yourself I would advise condom use to protect yourself. ...Read more
