How To Have Anal Without Her Knowing
STD in teens: In almost all states in the US (including Washington, your state) laws permit doctors and clinics to evaluate and treat young people (over age 12-14) for STDs, including herpes, without their parents' knowledge or consent. Clinics are available that will cost little or nothing, even if you have no insurance. Contact your local health department or Planned Parenthood. ...Read more
Anal Sex: Anal sex is common and can be very pleasurable. It is something that should be genuinely mutually desired, though. If you have decided to try anal sex, make sure you get a very good lubricant. Some people find it helpful to relax by inserting one lubricated finger, and then slowly increasing the number of fingers or using a special plug designed to be inserted anally. Use lots of lubricant. ...Read more
If a female has genital warts, can she have oral or intercourse with a man without spreading it to him? What can the do? I would like to know what we can and can't do?
Any sex probably OK: If you're a regular partner over the months or years, you needn't change any sexual practices. You've been repeatedly exposed, probably infected, and won't get the same HPV strain again. If new relationship, you could be infected by intercourse or performing oral on her. OTOH, new warts are uncommon at 45 and most new HPV infections cause no warts other symptoms, so no worries. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I statements: Hard to say for sure without more info, but generically it can help to use "i feel ...." statements rather than "you do ...." statements. This tells the other person you're owning how you feel and is much less likely to put them on the defensive or seem like you're complaining about them. It supports a stance in which you're both on the same team working towards a shared goal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not right: Is it that she has no urine to release? Is it that she feels the urge to urinate but cannot? These questions must be answered. It would be rare for her to have renal failure and not create such scant amounts of urine without being ill. She needs to look into this with her primary and probably see a urologist to make sure there is no obstruction to flow. I am surprised you didn't mention discomfort. ...Read more
Many years: In the days before effective treatment, the average time from infection to an aids diagnosis was 10 years. Some people progressed much faster than that, and some much slower. Everyone should get tested, so that they don't find out they're hiv-infected by getting diagnosed with aids. ...Read more
Plan ahead: If a woman has a healthy vulva, vagina, and hymen; if she is very stretchy; if she is happy and relaxed, with lots of natural lubrication; if a guy enters at a good angle, at the right spot; if he moves with small motions until she is well-lubricated and stretched out; there may not be pain, tearing, nor bleeding. She can go at her own pace if she's on top. Any plans to prevent pregnancy or STD's? ...Read more
I understand herpes without symptoms is a low risk of transmission to partner. How low? Do i need to tell him? He is married
Impossible to tell: For an individual, transmission either happens or not with every sexual contact. Risk goes down w/suppressive antivirals taken daily but not to zero. I believe your partner has a right to know. I would also suggest that you continue using a condom. Just because he is married, unfortunately this does not exclude possibility of transmitting an infection to you. You also have to take care of yourself. ...Read more
Feeding: Every time anyone eats before the stomach empties starts the digestive process over again and your stomach never gets a break. Your baby needs to go at least 90 minutes between feedings so his/her stomach can empty before filling it up again. This will help with digestion and having your baby on a schedule is better for you and your child. . ...Read more
No: You can ride it out and not treat it, and hopefully it will go away and not reappear frequently. If, however, you want it treated, your doctor will have to write a prescription. It is unclear how old you are, but discussing this with your doctor and requesting they respect your confidentiality may work successfully. On the other hand, who is going to pay for the prescription? ...Read more

Ovulation: For the "average" woman, ovulation takes place on day 14 of her 28 day menstrual cycle, but it can vary a lot in real people. You count day 1 as the fist day of the period, not from when it stops. The best days to try for pregnancy are probably the day or two before ovulation, or the day of ovulation. Using a basal body temp thermometer can help you figure out when you ovulate ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

UTI: Are you asking for these meds for yourself or for them? I see you are 49, so certainly you don't need to inform your parents about your healthcare issues. If it's for them, there is no way to get meds for them without having their consent and discussing with their physician. Sorry if I'm not understanding your question. ...Read more
