• Would you sleep with someone who has HPV ?

    Best answer: Yes. A person with HPV isn't a bad person or in any way 'dirty' (referencing the gross practice of calling someone STD free 'clean'), besides around 75% of people who are sexually active have/will have HPV in their lifetime - there's no reliable test for HPV in men and many people have no... show more
    Best answer: Yes.

    A person with HPV isn't a bad person or in any way 'dirty' (referencing the gross practice of calling someone STD free 'clean'), besides around 75% of people who are sexually active have/will have HPV in their lifetime - there's no reliable test for HPV in men and many people have no symptoms, so most people have had sex with someone who has HPV without knowing.

    If I'm at a point where I'm considering having sex with a person then chances are I plan on being with them for a long time, and I'm not going to dump someone I care about just because they have HPV - although I might dump them if they don't make me aware that they have an STD, that's a far bigger no-no than having an STD!

    Although condoms don't give 100% protection against HPV things like using condoms or dental dams and avoiding sex when there are warts can reduce risk, also if a partner did pose high risk of transferring HPV there is the HPV vaccine to reduce risk.

  • Can I get herpes from a straw?

    I am at a restaurant and the waiter brought the drinks out with the straws already in the drinks. Can I get herpes from that? Like if she touched the straw and I drank out of it?

  • Should I go to referred doctor after doctor said I have hpv?

    I went to the dr last year for a Pap and they said it came back abnormal and they’d test again in a year, so I just did my second Pap and got the results that I have hpv(not the warts) so I did research and read it can lead to cancer, etc. but I also read most people at some point in their life get it and it goes... show more
    I went to the dr last year for a Pap and they said it came back abnormal and they’d test again in a year, so I just did my second Pap and got the results that I have hpv(not the warts) so I did research and read it can lead to cancer, etc. but I also read most people at some point in their life get it and it goes away on its own. The doctor referred me to a gyno so they could look at it closer. Should I just try to see if it goes away on its own? Or is this something I should be super worried about? (I am with the same boyfriend, not sleeping around) I am 23 and still on my parents insurance but live on my own(I don’t want them to find out about this)

She basically laughed and explained that I was lying, so I asked to speak to someone else. I got basically the same response so really I just wrapped up the conversation and hung up. My mom pried and pried until she found out what had happened. I could tell she didn’t believe me, and I know no one else will, which is making me feel really shitty. I literally just turned 18, I’ve never had sex, or a girlfriend. The most contact I’ve ever had with a female friend is a hug, so what on earth is happening?

    Hello, 3 weeks ago I just had Oral sex. I did swallow some semen, unfortunately. Anyways, 3 days after it, I woke up with a sore throat, fever, fatigue and ache on my arms. I slept and woke up much better, no fever, fatigue or ache, I just had sore throat, which lasted for 3 days, then It no longer hurt. a week later, last week, I saw some blisters on my throat, I went to the doctor and started taking antibiotics, it healed, not completely, but it did. But today I woke up with some red spots on my hand, belly, feet and arms. (https://gyazo.com/85337f4c3e428d757f419c... and I am scared this is a HIV rash. Oh the guy promised he was clean. He said that he had done an exam before, and all. But he has had sex with a few more people after the exam.
