I was wondering how i could have an STD if i've never had sex?

Non-Genital STDs: Your main risks for std transmission without intercourse or performing/receiving oral/anal sex is from kissing. Herpes type i, mononucleosis or cytomegalovirus are most common.

If I have prostatitis could I give my girlfriend an std?

Probably not, but...: Prostatitis is not an STD, and for sure doesn't carry any risk for your girlfriend. However, you need to be sure of the diagnosis. Some STDs can mimic prostatitis, and some doctors don't really understand the difference. If your apparent prostatitis really is nongonococcal urethritis (NGU) or a chlamydial infection, then your gf could be at risk. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

I had sex recently and think i might have contracted herpes. How can I get tested?

I had sex recently and think i might have contracted herpes. How can I get tested?

See a GYN or derm: Why do you think this? If there are lesions, have them cultured. The blood test will not turn pos until 2 weeks. If the blood test is pos before then, it indicates previous infection. The blood test can differentiate type 1 (cold sore on face) from type 2 (genital) herpes. If there is concern, Acyclovir or valacyclovir are very effective & completely safe. If in doubt take either of these pills. ...Read more

Could I have a std?

Maybe. Maybe not.: A woman who's been having "s" with another person, might have allowed the other person to "t" some sort of "d" to her.

I would call the immunization clinic regarding the specific shot you are to receive. ...Read more

Hi mr/ms. i don't have a period like i should an now i think an could be pregnant. i did a test an it said no an my boyfrined said he been throwing up?

Repeat test: Pregnancy tests are most accurate one week after a missed period and done on a first morning urine. if you have had one negative test I suggest you try another one in about a week. if it is negative then you are probably not pregnant. If you are having unprotected sex please start on a prenatal vitamin with folate (folic acid). ...Read more
