Can you get HPV by getting a blow job from someone who has HPV?
Hi It’s possible for HPV to pass when having oral sex. If you are receiving oral sex, the person performing oral sex would need to have a HPV infection in their mouth for this to have any chance of happening. Currently we have no test available at the clinic level to see if someone has a HPV infection. Most people who have a HPV infection show no symptoms. Some people with a HPV infection will...

I got squirted by women by her liquids by mistake. It hit my eye and little in mouth. What are the chance I can catch something if she had something. Like any blood virus
Hi, thanks for your question. The scenario you describe is not a common way to get a blood virus like HIV or Hepatitis. It is possible to get chlamydia and gonorrhea this way with direct transfer of infected sexual fluid into your eye. If you had been exposed to chlamydia and/or gonorrhea this way, you may notice your eye becoming red in a couple days and a yellow discharge collecting in... Read Full Answer

Hi, Thanks for writing. We do not see HIV passed through french kissing (or deep kissing). HIV is not passed through saliva. HIV can be passed through blood, but when blood is in the mouth it becomes so diluted with the saliva that it would not be passed. You are not at risk for HIV from deep kissing, even with canker sores. Hope this helps. Please feel free to submit another question as... Read Full Answer
I was raped last year and never had sex before that. The day after it I had greenish secretions. The area was itchy, very red, and very obvious change in anatomy. Then the secretions turned yellowish. I would wake up to a lot of secretions from there and this was greyish and fluidy. I only went to the clinic a month later but they only found vaginosis and maybe yeast. I was treated for vaginosis. However the yellowish secretions kept coming back. I'm not sure what it is. The nurse I saw at 3...
Thanks for writing in with your concerns. It is very normal for something like this to remind you of what happened. If you have not already been able to talk to someone anonymously and privately about being raped, then I can recommend WAVAW ( Women Against Violence Against Women) as a safe organization to talk to someone about what happened to you. In British Columbia they have a 24 hour phone... Read Full Answer
