Hi, and thanks for your question. The window period (the time between when a person comes in contact with a sexually transmitted infection (STI) and when the STI will show up on a test) for HIV testing is 3 months, or 90 days.

Can I get pregnant through a guy wearing shorts but me wearing nothing?
Hi, and thanks for your question No, we really wouldn’t see someone getting pregnant this way. Pregnacy happens when there is direct contact of the genitals like penetrative intercourse of penis in vagina, or direct contact with ejaculate (semen) and the vulva or vaginal opening. Even if there is contact between genitals but one partner is wearing clothing, pregnancy is not a risk. We... Read Full Answer

So even if there was blood in her saliva, there isn’t really a risk for it to have... Read Full Answer
Hi, while having a relation an escort spit on the top of my penis and rubbed it as lubricant, an i at risk ? Thank you. Worried man.

Generally speaking, we don’t see STIs passed this way. HIV and different types of Hepatitis are passed through blood and body fluids like semen and vaginal fluid. Chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis are passed through... Read Full Answer
Do you get flu like symptoms and tiredness with every herpes outbreak ? I think i had my first out break and and i had all the symptoms but i am wondering if i will only get sores without flu for the secind time ? Type 2
Hi, and thanks for your question Most people do not experience the whole body symptoms of fever and aches with recurrent (repeat) outbreaks. Area-specific symptoms such as itching, tingling skin or sores are the most common symptoms. You may still feel a bit tired or unwell during a second or subsequent outbreak but it is unlikely to be as severe as the first time. Getting plenty of rest... Read Full Answer
