Safe Sex And Shingles
Can still transmit: Even when the virus is dormant (when one is not having a wart/lesion, etc) it can still be transmitted. It is not a guarantee that he would contract the infection, but it is still a definite possibility and (unfortunately), condoms have not been shown to provide reliable prevention of hpv. Sorry. ...Read more
None, ...: Contacting the right area with bacteria will always brings the potentially offending germs to the obviously or microscopically injured cells of skin or mucosa incurred by sexual acts. Hence there would be no imaginable ways to lessen STD risks; this is life reality and prevention by not doing it is the best way to avoid. Nonetheless, the odd of catching STDs is still low, but not impossible. ...Read more

Get it in all 3 area: Getting oral herpes does not immunize one from getting it elsewhere in the body.

Let the sore heal and the scab disappear before having "fun!". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sexually active, I use a condom every time.. Chances of me contracting hiv? Also, had sex with a genital herpes female. Says only 1 outbreak Am I safe
Safe enough, but...: Have sex with only one person. Also, one can get HIV through sex only if the other person has it, so just check with the other person. If worried about herpes, which can infect an uninfected person on the areas not covered by a condom, the infected partner can talk with a doctor about preventive drugs. But, if both partners are already infected with both Herpes types, it's late for prevention. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I never had anal sex but i got genital warts on my penis. Is it possible to get anal and scrotum warts as well? Does the interferon therapy effective?
I had unsafe sex with prostitute yesterday which preventive antibiotics should I take to avoid any std's and hiv.
Sex: If you got any std or hiv, then you will not be able to prevent any of those, only treat. Hiv is the hardest in this case, because you will need to see a doc to have them possibly give you medication which is not 100% protective at this point. Gonorrhea and chlamydia are fairly easily treated. Herpes is usually not treated prophylactically. Hep.B/c are not either. Trichomonas can be. ...Read more
Is oral sex risky?is it safe if man use condom?is it safe if you have oral sex with your wife,and u and her didnt have any sex with other person yet?
STDs: Yes you are likely to be safe. If you both are sexually faithful and were virgins there is no reason to fear STDs between you. A condom is not even needed for oral sex. It is good for vaginal sex if you want to avoid a pregnancy at this time. You can relax and enjoy your love-making with your wife. Best! ...Read more

Yes/ depends: If you are sexually active and not in a sustained monogamous relationship it is reasonable to get STD screening every 6 mo or after any suspicious encounter.

Is it safe to unprotected sex with my partner during menstruation and when is the safe period thanks ?
Depends: Depends what you mean by safe. For std's? No. For pregnancy? If your cycles are regular (every 28 days), then in general you won't be fertile during your menses. But, it still is wise to use condoms or other birth control all the time, especially of your cycles aren't 100% regular. ...Read more
Dont have to: The real problem with herpes and pregnancy is if you have lesions on your vagina during delivery. I would not treat the herpes now except if it has severe symptoms to you. You may also try the topical Acyclovir or denovir ointments that are safer during pregnancy. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can genital warts come back after having protected sex with someone ? Hpv was dormant for two years. No warts. Until protected sex with a new partner....
HPV : Hpv is caused by a virus. I suggest that rather than them coming back, you have a recurrance. As dr fowler points out, there are many strains of virus and you could become infected with a new strain. When you have them removed, you only have the warts that are visual removed. Some warts are invisible even with a careful exam and colposcopy. I suggest that you discuss this situation with your physician, who may have information about the previous hpv that could help answer your questions. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have had sex before (only one partner in lifetime) and planning to get HPV vaccine. Can I have sex during the first to third vaccination?
Sure, go ahead: Congratulations for getting vaccinated! If you and your partner have been having sex before now, and he has HPV, probably you're already infected, so there's no point in stopping sex now. If either of you has other partners, new HPV infections could be introduced. You'll be very well protected after the 2nd dose of vaccine, but it takes all 3 doses for complete protection. ...Read more
