Are "poppers" legal in the US? If so, which are safe to use before anal sex (if any). What is the best recommendation besides condoms for gay sex?
Depends . . .: I believe there are different types of poppers eg nitrites (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poppers), so I can't comment on the different versions. However, I wanted to point out that we don't recommend using PDE-5 inhibitors such as Cialis, Levitra, (vardenafil) Staxyn & Viagra in conjunction w/nitrites & nitrates as this may lower blood pressure excessively causing one to pass out. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My husband desire is very low since we 're married
we may stay for a month or more without any sex, although many times i wear exciting clothes?
Seek organic cause: I'm going to assume that you are both deeply in love, and have explored ways to make one another happy. There's a tendency by physicians to overlook causes of diminished libido even in young men. Two entities that are often missed are prolactinoma and hemochromatosis. Perhaps, "dear, let's both go and talk to your doctor about how to make our sex life better" will work. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

38 yr. Marriage. One child. Extremely infrequent intercourse. Very painful sex w/blood. Gynecologist states episiotomy to blame. Any options for me?
Assuming it is not: From atrophic vaginitis which means vaginal thinning due to lack of estrogen in the vaginal tissue - that can cause all of your symptoms, and can be treated with low dose vaginal estrogen like Estrace (estradiol) cream, if it is really from episiotomy which is possible but not likely, the episiotomy can be redone with a minor surgery, you should go for a 2nd opinion before u would have that type of surgery. ...Read more

Only slight risk: In general, oral sex is safe sex, with low risk for all STDs and virtually zero risk for some, including HIV. Chlamydia infrequently infects the oral cavity and transmission by oral sex is very rare. Oral gonorrhea is more common and more easily transmitted, but still the risk is very low for any single exposure. You would not be at "great risk", only slight risk. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What are chances for getting std/ HIV from one and only unprotected sex ( men with women vaginal)?
Unprotected sex: Chances of getting std/hiv from just one episode of unprotected sex are much greater than if you never had unprotected sex. Plus, it places your future partners at greater risk, too. Of course, this assumes that you know nothing about your partner's status. You can't catch something that your partner doesn't have but that implies an element of trust. Just in case, wear a condom each/every time. ...Read more
