Will recent HFM disease affect the result of hsv 2 igg test? Recently I got 2.7 in the test but I did not have high risk sexual behaviours.
No: If you have ever been exposed to HSV2 your body will mount a response. This response is what we look for in the blood test. HSV 2 does not cause symptoms in 90% of those who have it. STD's do not discriminate and are always possible, so testing before the onset of activity with a new partner is a MUST! Anyone, regardless of high risk behavior or not, can contract an STD so always use protection. ...Read more

During puberty what are the functions of testosterone vs dihydrotestosterone? Which has greater influence on sexual development, facial hair & voice?
Hi. I'm a 19 years old male. I'm losing my hair due to male pattern baldness. Can finasteride halt my sexual development as I might be into late stages of puberty? Thanks.

If you are just 19, it's too early to tell whether you're going to have male pattern baldness, though there's a close correlation with how much chest hair you're naturally blessed with. These baldness meds don't work all that well, and the key to looking good from now on is physical fitness, which is completely under your control. ...Read more

Yes & not your job: It is likely that he at least has sexual frustration issues, if not an outright disorder.
