I swallowed my boyfriends semen last night and he is a heavy heroin user. And I had to take a UA today will that cause my test to come up positive?

Unlikely: It is not likely that swallowing the semen of a heroin user will cause you to have a positive urine test. However, by having a heroin user as a boyfriend you are exposing yourself to many dangers, including HIV. Please reconsider your choice to have relations with a drug abuser.

Sounds like an addic: To me. It's not up to you to decide if he has a problem. This is about him. Sounds like he does. Suboxone is no panacea. He will not feel high. People fail therapy if not motivated. Drug addiction kills people. Every day. Support him and help him get help if he needs it. Go to meetings with him. Suboxone is a way to get off opiates. Then get off the suboxone. Get into a good life. Be well. ...Read more
