Infertility? Too Much Laser Exposure?

Dec 14, 2015

I had IPL laser hair removal at a local salon. The technician gave me 5 sessions (each which included a free retouch session meaning a total of 10) with an interval of two weeks. Obviously i hadn't done my research well and it didn't work. I am going to the leading laser hair removal in my country concern is that too much laser exposure to my area and my ovaries? Would this cause infertility or anything of that matter? It's not about the laser itself but to the amount of exposure that i am being exposed to.

Syphilis Or HIV Exposure?

I am a 26 usually healthy male. Almost four weeks ago had sex with a 37 year old woman, condom broke unnoticed for we don't know how long. I panicked. 48 hours later was started on pep treatment for possible hiv exposure for 28 days.

10 days later an open sore emerged on the bottom of my penis along with swollen non painful pelvic lymph glands on both sides. Went to an std doctor who said it doesn't look like syphilis but i should get tested in a month. Got tested on 14 day after exposure blood and urine for all std, all negative. Today is 25 days after exposure and i have a few questions :

1. Are 4 weeks after exposure enough for blood and urine tests to show std infections such as syphilis? By the way the sore didn't hurt and was gone after a week.

2. If it is syphilis what are the chances she gave me hiv along with it.? i read a lot and am petrified about this.

3. What are the chances that pep would work if taken 48~50 hours after incident?

STDs :: Precum And Exposure

I received a lap dance in an adult bookstore.

There was no touching (of me) but by me, save rubbing the legs of my jeans or me touching/ untangling some jeweled thingy from her lingerie.
BUT I did masterbate and at one point even rubbed the tip of my penis head which was soaked with precum, with my hand.  She had touched herself a few times but never touched me and never anywhere near my penis.

My specific question is this.  

Because of the fluid from my penis is there a "way in," for any stds?  Or is Precum something that only goes out not back in.  Does Me touching my penis especially the Precum make me at risk for any stds?

Unprotected Sex :: Fearing The HIV Exposure

I'm a female, had unprotected vaginal and oral sex 4 weeks ago. Two days after that a guy told me he was sick (sore throat and lite fever). A week after that I got sick (sore throat, stuffed nose and cough), which passed in about a week and felt like a usual cold. However, I am fearing the HIV exposure. Had two negative oraquick tests (3 and 4 weeks), had complete blood work at the doctors (including NAT) 5 days ago, but the results are not in yet. I have bouts of panic and anxiety over this. Why does it take such a long time for the results to arrive (I did the whole STD panel, some results are in but they won't tell me which ones)? Does it mean that I tested positive and the lab is confirming the results which takes additional time, or is it normal to take that long? How reliable is the negative oraquick test at 4 weeks? Please help!

P.S. The guy says he's clean, supposedly he's just got off the LTR and his ex has recently tested negative for everything. I know for sure I was clean too, haven't had sex for almost a year prior to that and donate blood regularly.

P.S.2 My only symptoms were sore throat, cough and runny nose. I didn't have rash, swollen lymph nodes, fever and all that... I understand this is consistent with the common cold, but yet don't know how to survive till Monday. How do I stop myself from compulsive oraquick testing?

Gonorrhea From Oral Exposure Only? Chlamydia?

Has anyone here ever gotten positive gonorrhea after unprotected oral sex ?

There seems to be conflicting information. For chlamydia and trichomoniasis it is said that these bacteria do not survive in mouth. Gonorrhea affects the back of throat and can be acquired more easily with deep-throat only.

So my question is , has anyone here caught gonorrhea from oral exposure only ?

HIV :: Sore Throat After 4-5 Days Of Possible Exposure

I had a non sexual encounter with a bar girl some days back. During the process she gave me a hand job and we had smooched for a couple of times. After 4-5 days of this incident, I got some sore throat which got aggravated to running nose and some light cold as I was sleeping in air conditioning environment. Since then I have been extremely worried if there is even a slightest possibility that it is due to the transmission of HIV virus. I am not able to correlate the occurrence of sore throat and extremely worried because of that.

HIV Risk Assessment :: Oral Sex, Pre-Ejaculate Exposure

I know my question may have been asked a million times before but I want to get a first hand assessment of my potential risk with HIV based from the series of events that acquired during that night. I was firm to believe that oral sex is safe - up until I read some articles on the internet. Some websites say it's low-risk. Some say it is moderate risk. I do not know which claim is more true than the other

So how this is my last sexual encounter went:

- So I met guys
- I did brush my teeth lightly.
- We basically did give and receive oral sex. No anal sex was done .
- One of the two guys did finger me.
- The whole act last around 30 - 40 minutes
- he ejaculated 5-10 minutes after through masturbation. He "unleashed" it in my legs or in my chest.
- About a minute or two, I gargled water
- We had a small talk after the deed. I was kind of hesitant to believe that he was negative although that's what he did told me. Aside from that, he told me that what we did was a low-risk activity.

Now for my questions:

- Let' say he was indeed positive, what are the chances of him passing the virus on this one time incident?
- From what I have read over at the internet, saliva has a capability to deactivate the virus once any fluid comes contact to it. Is this accurate? Does brushing one's teeth lessen this saliva's capability?
- Is pre-ejaculate just as infectious as semen or blood?
- Would brushing my teeth before or after the act really create cuts/bleeds deep enough that some pre-ejaculate may come in contact with my bloodstream?
- What about deep throat oral sex. What are the risks say he had pre-ejaculate if I was doing it to him?
- Let's also assume that he had a soaring viral load, will this affect my chances? Again, some websites argue that the higher the VL, the higher the risk one is exposed to.
- What are your thoughts about fingering. Is this safer than say, oral and anal sex?
- where I live we have Rapid ICT for testing. How conclusive is it on 6, 8, 10, 12 weeks of testing? Should I be tested after 12 weeks for it to be definitely conclusive or 12 weeks is more than enough?

I know that the only way to know my status is to get tested. It was only been six weeks since the act happened and my anxiety has been killing me to death regarding this incident. I do not want to be the first person documented to have contracted the disease through oral sex.

HIV :: Oraquick Test Reliable After Years Of Exposure?

I am struggling with a concern I have been having for about two weeks. I have taken the oraquick at home oral swab 4 times And tested negative 4 times.. I feel as though my first result wasn't completely followed as directed so really only 3 negative results.. It has been 3 years since I would have came in contact with HIV.. So I guess my question is..Can I trust these results?

HIV Exposure A Week Ago :: Tender Lymph Nodes, Fever And Sore Throat

Exactly one week and 1 day ago I received unprotected oral sex from a sex worker in South Africa (known for HIV). It lasted for about 30 minutes. I know I made a major mistake. Statistically she had HIV as 70% of sex workers are positive. She had false teeth in her mouth and removed it for the purposes of the ******* which means she definitely had blood in her mouth and there was deep throating involved. I am more than certain I got the virus and don't know how to deal with it. I know many people experience phantom pains but I definitely have tender lymph nodes in my face and neck, fever, sore throat, all the typical signs I contracted the virus. I took a test 2 days after and of course it was negative due to the window period and no prior sexual experience (NONE). I am considering taking my own life due to this issue. I come from a VERY conservative family and they would never be able to deal with this. What should I do?

Infertility :: Infertility

I have been dealing with infertility for going on 8 years. I am young but it is still very hard. I found out yesterday that my 21 year old sister is pregnant by a man who lives with his girlfriend. She wasn't trying yet she got pregnant. It hurts SO BAD! I want to be there for her but I can't even look at her right now it is so hard.

I haven't had a period since October. When I was living in Michigan my Gynecologist put me on Clomid. I was on it for a year but it never worked. I don't ovulate properly and obviously don't have my periods on a monthly basis. I was just wondering if anyone has or is going through this and what you did to get through this/solve this?

Any suggestion would be great. I feel horrible right now and I need some uplifting news.

Depo-provera And Infertility

I'm nearly 16 years old and I found out some pretty horrible news about 3 months ago and it's been playing on my mind.

When my mum was younger she went to her doctors for her first depo contraceptive injection, her doctor didn't give her a pregnancy test but little did they know she was pregnant on me (my mum clearly didn't know either).

2 injections down the line and my mum was having problems and her stomach was swelling the doctors said that it was a stomach ulcer (it was me aha) after a while my mum insisted on having a pregnancy test and found out she was having me.

They said it could lead me Into having fertility problems.

They have said in the future if I try before I'm 25 and I am infertile that I will get ivf and any other treatment for free but..

I just wanted to know if this has happened to anyone else and if they have had problems with getting pregnant or of there is any advice in knowing if I am infertile like symptoms and stuff like that

I know I'm young and won't be having children yet it just worries me.
