You and I are in the same boat, my dear. The men I've dated want "statistics"-- hard facts. The truth is, they CAN get it from us, but the risk is very, very, very small when condoms are used.

I have guidleines that I follow, and these have worked for me for 5 years now. No anal sex (protected or otherwise-- why take the chance?)... No receptive oral sex for me 3 days before or 2 days after my period... (I also take the pill to regulate my period so I KNOW when it's coming.) Also-- I don't brush my teeth immediately before giving oral sex, just in case my gums bleed. Also, I have my partners get tested 3 months after we first sleep together, and every three months thereafter.... for the rest of the time we're together. I even called an ex-boyfriend 3 months after we broke up to make sure that he got tested one more time. And you can make darn sure that wehn I get married, my husband will get tested every 3 months for the rest of our lives.

Be safe, be careful, and BE HAPPY.
