Is it possible for you to get aids from having multiple sexual partners and none of them are infected?

STDS: Five stds are potentially deadly, not just hiv. I try in my practice to have frank, open and honest conversations with my patients about the risks of stds. I want them to know which ones are of higher risk; which ones have a vaccine for; and how often to test when one is sexually active.

Stds can, in general, be avoided with vaccinations and condoms. I feel that all sexual beings must know this. ...Read more

It's very important, though, to be tested for all std's for your health and for the health of your partners. Please use condoms. ...Read more

How is it possible that heterosexual males have more sexual partners than females--start younger, do it more, or hang in older?

Not possible: This is hilarious. It's not possible. Either men are lying and saying they have more partners or women are lying and saying they have fewer partners. This article explores the discrepancy: http://www. Nytimes. Com/2007/08/12/weekinreview/12kolata. Html. One explanation is that maybe some of the mens partners are imaginary. ...Read more

Why do women hide facts about number of past sexual partners?

Why do women hide facts about number of past sexual partners?

To avoid a label: Some people feel that a woman that has had more than 1 sexual partner is sexually promiscuous, aka a "slut". Furthermore, some people think that a sexually inexperienced woman would make a better sexual partner due to a tighter vagina. These are myths or cultural biases that have nothing to do with reality. But perceptions and opinions don't change easily. So some women hide the number. ...Read more

How often should you (and a new sexual partner) get tested for stis?

Only the best: If you are planning regular unprotected sex, you owe each other proof you are clean.

Can using Ph balance products for awhile then not using around the time you change sexual partners cause BV?

Can using Ph balance products for awhile then not using around the time you change sexual partners cause BV?

Female hygiene: No, probably not. Your body is made to balance its own pH in a natural way. You don't need to use any store-bought products at all. Gentle soap and water is all you need, and some women find that even soap is too irritating. BV is strictly overgrowth of normal vaginal bacteria. Women can get it even if not sexually active. It's easy to treat, so see a doctor for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

My boyfriend was my first but he's had other sexual partners he said that he and an ex tried for two years to have kids they couldn't is he infertile?

Hard to say: It takes two to make it work and he could have fertility issues. His ex might have them also. He might want to have some basic studies done through his doc or someone his doc can refer him to. If he seems to have all the right stuff, you start the relationship with more info than most. ...Read more

I have had some sexual partners and I have never orgasmed I have tried Clitoras stimulations like vibrator but cause I cant enjoy sex because I cant?

Doctors and Sex: I am sorry to hear this. But, we have to tread lightly when we talk about sex. One does not usually go to the doctor to learn how to orgasm. We are to have no opinion on when, where, or with whom you are sexual. But, given your age you may want your Gynecologist to do an exam to make sure everything is normal anatomically. There is a book about females and orgasm that I often recommend: ...Read more

Test + for clamydia, partner tested negative both treated. Tested 6 was later I'm + again and he's negative. Only sexual partner. How is this posible?

A few possibilities: Chlamydia self cures, usually in a few weeks; he may have had it but now cleared. Urine tests in men miss up to 10% of infections. Maybe you had it from a past partner, current partner lucky and didn't catch it. If treated w/ azithromycin, it fails 2-5% of the time (1 chance in 20 to 50). You both should be re-treated, preferably with doxycycline this time. That will take care of it for sure. ...Read more

I've had 2 sexual partners. One who pulled out & the other who did not. I'm now pregnant. Who is most likely to be the dad? This is a silly question, I know, but both encounters were right around the same time & I'm trying to do process of elimination who

Logically: Logically the partner who ejaculated inside of you is the most likely father in this situation, however there is still a chance he is not. Your doctor will be able to tell you the date you likely conceived based on your last menstrual period and your first ultrasound. Hopefully this information will help you determine who the father is. If you are unable to do this then you will have to wait until dna testing can be done. If your doctor recommends a amniocentesis for other reasons, and you go ahead with the test, dna testing for paternity can be done this way.
Best of luck. ...Read more

E. coli: It is not abnormal to culture e. Coli from the vagina or perineum. This organism is part of normal bowel flora and often colonizes other areas. If you have no symptoms do not worry about it. My question would be why was the culture done? ...Read more

Is someone who's HIV positive required to inform present or future sexual partners by law?

Is someone who's HIV positive required to inform present or future sexual partners by law?

HIV: This may vary from state to state, but there have been criminal and civil cases in which the failure to notify has been evidence of a variety of criminal accusations, and the civil liabilities have resulted in very significant monetary rewards to the injured party. Morally it seems only natural to let people with whom you plan to be intimate know what their risks are. Wouldn't you want to know? ...Read more

If HPV can clear on its own is it possible it can come back without any sexual partners at all?

If HPV can clear on its own is it possible it can come back without any sexual partners at all?

Yes: A "clear" hpv test may mean the virus is only 'suppressed' to sub clinical levels where it is not detectable and won't cause disease; but may replicate at a later time to detectable, clinical levels where it may cause changes. The further out a person is negative the less likely it is to become positive without new exposure, but it is possible. ...Read more

Are newly HIV infected people by law require to inform past sexual partners that they may or may not have infected?

Depends: Laws vary by state, but this is something that obviously can't be enforced, since the patient has to provide names. People diagnosed with HIV are encouraged to notify former partners, which can also be done anonymously through the health department. Disclosure to current partners is more straightforward, and in some states can be done without consent of a patient who refuses to disclose. ...Read more
