Bacterial vaginosis: The fishy odor is usually due to an infection that is a mixture of many different bacteria, the common name is bacterial vaginosis, also call it bv.

Does an orgasm (sex, masturbation) effect your mental or physical performance?

It should affect: your physical performance if you overdo it - esp if the orgasm is powerful enough to sap your strength for at least 15-20 mins afterwards. The older you are, the less likely you will recover soon afterwards. And the refractory period is built in unfortunately, it can be the bane of male existence :) Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more

Can STD's like: AIDs,HPV,Gonorrhea,syphlis transmit through external genital contact and no penetration -no sexual intercourse?

No risk -- at least low enough to be ignored -- for STDs passed by genital fluids (gonorrhea, chlamydia, HIV, hepatitis B). STDs that are transmitted skin-to-skin (herpes, HPV, syphilis) could be transmitted, but very rarely even for these. I hope this helps. Stay safe! ...Read more

Males are more likely to be symptomatic but their irritation may ignored and subside over time. It is best to inform contacts that they may have picked up the germ. Treatment is easy & failure to treat can result in sterility or worse. ...Read more

Can circumcision affect sexuality?

Can circumcision affect sexuality?

Not so much: "Female circumcision" is a crime against humanity, intended to prevent women from being able to experience and enjoy their sexuality.

Hygiene is easier, having it done as an infant is a small deal compared to the 10% of men who'll need it later, it protects from HIV infection probably, & may make the glans less sensitive ...Read more
