my personal health

Aug 31, 2013

Hi Doc. I have been masturbating using cucumbers and banana greasing them with shower gel. I`m I at any risk of getting any infection? Also I had oral sex with my boyfriend and kissed. My tongue has been itchy and uncomfortable, can it be am sick or something? Also can someone receive their menses when they are pregnant?

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi Masturbating does not carry any risk of HIV transmission. Oral sex carries the lowest risk of HIV transmission. Kissing poses no risk of HIV transmission. Yes someone can have bleeding during their pregnancy but not menses. Sometimes women may spot during their pregnancy, this is definitely something to inform the OBGYN regarding.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

Pregnant and concerned, PLEASE ANSWER MY QUESTION! PLEASE.
