Feb 20, 2012

I have a boyfriend. we undorgone sex without any precautions. I am still a vergin. Due to some reason I cant marry my boyfriend. Is there any danger of aids to me or my husband in future?

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

Anytime you engage in penetrative sex without a condom, there is a risk for HIV. Now that you sexually active, I suggest you get tested for HIV and other STD's every six months or at the very least, annually.

Condoms are the best way to protect yourself against HIV and many STD's. I would suggest talking about STD testing, and condom use with your sexual partners. Talking about your sexual history and behaviors is a part of being a responsible, sexually active adult. These can be tough conversations to have, but they are very necessary.

In health,


Neuropathy and false negative?
