Could I be infecting my partner with Mononucleosis? Am I ...

Hi there, My partner and have been together for a few weeks. I recently got an sti screen and it alll came back negative (gonorrhoea, chlamydia, syphillis, HIV, hepatitis C, LGV). I also got immunization for HPV. However, 2 weeks ago my partner was diagnosed with Mononucleosis. We did not have any contact for 2 weeks, until a few days ago when we met and kissed. He was not displaying any symptoms and felt 100%. I haven’t developed any symptoms, but he is started to have pain again in his throat. My question is, could I be infecting him? Am I at risk? What can we do? We are both foreigners and Helen temporary residents with shitty insurance that won’t cover test for us. Any assistance will be highly appreciated Thanks Peter



I am confused with my feeling for a friend

I am a 19 year old Lesbian and my best friend is 22 and I think she's straight or possibly bi. The problem is that I have never had very close relationships with really anybody-but over the last year we do everything together. I have never felt so close to anybody in my life and I am in love with her. I don't know what to do because I want to tell her but I am afraid of ruining our friendship. It's just really hard because I keep hoping that one day she will feel the same way about me. It hurts to be around her and it hurts to be away from her. I hate keeping things bottled up inside but it would kill me if I messed up what I have in her as a friend. Ahhh I am so confused and I don't know what to do or say.







I have been penetrated with a finger, could I have ...

Dear Alterheros team, I sent an email asking something that maybe sounds a little stupid but it is worrying me a lot. Last Friday, I was in a sauna and at a point I was flirting with someone older than me, someone I did not know and suddenly being close to him he put his finger through my anus, he did it very roughly and quickly as soon as I realise what was happening I pushed him away, after this incident my rectum was in pain for 3 to 4 days. I have never had any experience like that, so I got worried as soon as I left this place as I have heard that AIDs and other STDs can get into your body very easily. I did not have time to check if this man had wounds on his fingers, maybe not, may be for him this is normal but for me I got scared as never experienced anything like that. Could you please advice me what to do? Do you think I have risked my health with this incident? Thanks in advance
