Can hep b/c transmit between 2 men having anal sex & both men r uninfected with hep b/c? That is can anal sex between uninfected person cause hep b/c?

No: If every one in the group having anal sex is truly not infected at that time, no one would get hep b/c.

Are non penetrative sex practices risky for contracting leprosy? E.g.: female (active) to male (passive) masturbation without condom, fellatio.

Are non penetrative sex practices risky for contracting leprosy?  E.g.: female (active) to male (passive) masturbation without condom, fellatio.

Maybe, but low risk: Any personal contact (kissing, skin contact, etc) can transmit leprosy. This includes sex, both penetrating and non penetrating, but probably no more often than other contact. Fortunately, leprosy is quite hard to transmit. Most household and sexual contacts (e.g. spouses) never catch it themselves. I suggest you discuss it with the doctor or clinic caring for the person with leprosy. ...Read more

Had unsafe oral sex with guy whose ONLY sexual encounter was unsafe vag sex with woman who tested negative after 5 months of exposure. Can i have HIV?

Unsafe sex: While it's unlikely you contracted HIV after this episode of unsafe sex, you can not rely on third hand information of sexual history. The only history you can rely on is your own. To protect against HIV infection, practice safe sex every time unless you are in a mutually monogamous relationship in which both partners have tested negative for HIV over six months or longer. ...Read more

Will chlamydia necessarily effect every sexual partner you are in contact with sexually?

Will chlamydia necessarily effect every sexual partner you are in contact with sexually?

Depends: Chlamydia is quite easy to pass & is commonly done so by women who may never know they have acquired the germ. Condoms provide some but not absolute protection. Males are more likely to be symptomatic but their irritation may ignored and subside over time. It is best to inform contacts that they may have picked up the germ. Treatment is easy & failure to treat can result in sterility or worse. ...Read more
