My man got checked for STD and he didn't have any and I gave him oral sex and my throat hurts could it be that I put it too far down my throat?

My man got checked for STD and he didn't have any and I gave him oral sex and my throat hurts could it be that I put it too far down my throat?

Probably bruised: Oral and throat tissues are mildy flexible--built to pass a chewed bolus of food--not to receive traumatic thrusts from inflexible sources such as an erect penis. That can cause dangerous harm. A "deep throat" scene in a porn movie is there for shock effect and titillation--the highly sensitive tip of the penis receives no stimulation in dt. Use care & creativity instead of risk--you'll be safer. ...Read more

Swollowinh men's cum when you know 100% they don't have an Std, wgat could happen?

Nothing, no worries!: If it is certain there is no STD, then there is absolutely no health risk or problem from getting semen in the mouth or swallowing it. Even considering STDs, oral sex is safe sex -- not entirely free of STD risk, but low risk for all STDs (much lower than vaginal or anal sex) and virtually zero risk for some, including HIV. ...Read more

How do u find out if u got and std? And what are side effects for men? And how long dose it take to see the effects?

Get Tested.: With many stds, men may not have symptoms, so the only way to know if you are infected is to get tested. Every std can effect you differently, but the more common stds can eventually lead to sterility and/or impotency. Depending on the std, if symptoms are to appear, they may show up as soon as 24 hours after exposure to several years after the exposure. ...Read more

What is bv? Is it a std? How can I provent getting it can men have it?

Bacterial vaginosis: BV is overgrowth of vaginal bacteria. Whether it's a true STD has been the subject of much research without clear answers yet.

It causes no symptoms in men. Condoms are good prevention. ...Read more

What are chances for getting std/ HIV from one and only unprotected sex (men with women vaginal)?

Unprotected sex: Chances of getting std/hiv from just one episode of unprotected sex are much greater than if you never had unprotected sex. Plus, it places your future partners at greater risk, too. Of course, this assumes that you know nothing about your partner's status. You can't catch something that your partner doesn't have but that implies an element of trust. Just in case, wear a condom each/every time. ...Read more

Low risk, no PrEP: The tests for STDs and HIV are very accurate, so you can be pretty sure your partner doesn't have any of the infections for which she was tested. And this sounds like a low risk situation for HIV, which remains less common ithan you might think among straight singles in the US. You don't need PrEP and most doctors wouldn't be willing to prescribe it in this situation. But get in the condom habit! ...Read more

How accurate is 12 weeks negative stds blood test after exposure with unknown status men? HIV Elisa, rpr, hbsag, hcv, herpes. Can I stop worrying

No more exposures?: If a woman is a worrier, she will worry until she stops exposing herself. So, at this time she can stop worrying and stop exposing herself. If she decides to expose herself again, she will worry again. It's a choice to expose or not to expose; thus, the worrying is her own consequence within her control. ...Read more
