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.

Can men get false positives for STD?

Can men get false positives for STD?

POSSIBLE: Men and women can get false positives for std testing. For example: the specificity rate for enzyme immunoassay HIV screening tests indicates that, in 1, 000 HIV test results of healthy individuals, about 15 of these results will be a false positive!

How long men can have STD without noticing it for?

How long men can have STD without noticing it for?

Depends: Which std are you referring to? Syphilis and HIV can exist without being symptomatic for very long periods of time. Carriage of some organisms without their creating clinical disease is another possibility. The question must be more specific and delineate the particular infection and why you are asking the question.

Are STDs more common in men?

Are STDs more common in men?

Not overall: Overall, there are 3 times the number of stds found in the us in women than men. However, much of that could be because women are screened far more often than men because of gyn appts and testing. Others like syphilis are 6 times more likely in men than women. Just depends on the std discussed and the person.

Do STDs effect men similarly to women?

Do STDs effect men similarly to women?

No: The male reproductive organs are external and there is no connection from the exterior of the body to the inside such as is provided by the female cervix which literally provides an access point for infection to ascend into the peritoneal cavity, the inside of the abdomen. Infection there can potentially cause much more damage.

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

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.

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?

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.

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. Probably it is usually sexually acquired, but not always. It's more common in women at risk for STD and other STDs (gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomonas) often are present at the same time. It causes no symptoms in men. Condoms are good prevention.

Twitching in the urethra for men, std?

STDs: Don't know what you mean by urethral twitching and would need far more info to try and answer your question. My suggestion is that if you feel you were exposed to an std go and see a doctor, be examined and tested thoroughly. Good luck.
