very unlikely: Yes, some women have regular monthly bleeding during early pregnancy. But the home urine pregnancy test is very accurate, so a negative test- if done correctly- should reassure you. Have you considered effective contraception, like pills or iud, so you can have less worry/. ...Read more

No HIV risk: HIV is not transmitted by hand-genital contact and very rarely by oral sex. There has never been a scientifically proved case of oral to penis HIV transmission. And if your partner was HIV negative, then obviously no risk. If you were the one tested and testing was done at least a few weeks after the last exposure, the negative result is conclusive. Sounds like you should be having no worries. ...Read more

Hard to say: There are a variety of infections that can pass sexually.Not all are part of a routine screen, so I would have to say the answer depends on how thorough the testing went.Males are often not evaluated for HPV although they can shed virus off and on for years after primary infection.
