My boyfriend told me his sperm is sterile can i still get pregnant and i havent had sex and also yes or no and if no how can i get a child and why?

My boyfriend told me his sperm is sterile can i still get pregnant and i havent had sex and also yes or no and if no how can i get a child and why?

Details, details,...: It's nice that a boyfriend is talking about his inability to have a baby the natural way (talking about it early in the relationship, rather than later). Be sure his info is reliable. The way a fertile wife (that means getting married, settling down, and then doing this) gets a child is to use a different person's sperm (sperm donor), or to adopt a child. ...Read more

If I put a condum on to get oral sex and I was being treated for chlamydia is it possible for me to reinfect myself cause I still have a discharge ?

Spit in the face: Well, thank you for using that condom! I'd never spit in the face of good sense. However, keep in mind that stuff can leak around the other end-- but for your partner to get it that way is probably a long shot.As for you,if you are still being treated as directed then those secretions have been treated as well.Let's hope you're taking the right antibiotic; like, is it just Chlamydia down there??? ...Read more

Could I have herpes? I've given oral to my boyfriend twice and i don't know if he is std-free I have had a sore throat now for over two weeks, and im waiting to see a doctor. What are the chances that I have herpes?

Could I have herpes? I've given oral to my boyfriend twice and i don't know if he is std-free I have had a sore throat now for over two weeks, and im waiting to see a doctor. What are the chances that I have herpes?

Fellatio: Semen from an infected individual contains hiv, and if it hits on the tonsils or lymphatic tissue in the throat you can become infected. The same is true for gonorrhea and syphilis. With chlamydia it would be difficult to prove that it came from semen. Herpes is a big possibility but more likely you would get oral lesions rather than throat lesions. Be careful, be protected. ...Read more

Took an oral tablet today to treat thrush, how long before this works and is it safe to have sex after say two  days, if symptoms are gone .

About right: Two days or so is about right for the oral tablet to work; on the other question, there actually is no medical reason to avoid sex even with a yeast infection, as the risk of transmission to a male is very low. Because of this, it's always "safe", just sometimes not appealing. ...Read more

Could I have sex if I have a vaginal thrush?

Could I have sex if I have a vaginal thrush?

Better to wait: Best to wait until treatment done and symptoms are gone. However, it probably wouldn't hurt anything if your symptoms aren't severe; it's mostly an issue of comfort during sex. But sometimes men get penile yeast infection from their partners, and it can be transmitted back. But if your partner doesn't have a penile rash or other symptoms, I wouldn't worry about it. ...Read more

I have been on antibiotics for wisdom teeth surgery removal. I have a mild case of oral thrush and I am going to start swab treatments today. In a week, would it be okay for me to kiss my boyfriend? Would he be at risk of getting oral thrush from me?

I have been on antibiotics for wisdom teeth surgery removal. I have a mild case of oral thrush and I am going to start swab treatments today. In a week, would it be okay for me to kiss my boyfriend? Would he be at risk of getting oral thrush from me?

It is ok in a week: Thrush generally occurs when the normal bacterial flora in your mouth is changed due to taking antibiotics or when your immune system isn't working correctly. If your boyfriend has a normal immune system and you use the swabs for a week, he should be fine. Also, it is probably not a good idea to french kiss if your surgery is recent. ...Read more

See an ID doctor: I hope you could see an ID specialist who could help determine 'why' you had oral thrush. Alot of doctors misdiagnose thrush, so I'm not certain that you had it-so I recommend that you see a specialist in Infectious Diseases. Since you had some complication after oral sex, this is another reason I would want you to be checked properly. Not sure who is managing your care at the present? ...Read more
