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



Do I have herpes?

Hi....quick question. I have this spot on my tail bone. I noticed it about a year ago. It was a little bump that was very, very itchy. It went away, and because of the location I never questioned if it was an STI. Occasionally it will pop up again and itch, only this time I noticed that now there are two bumps. I started looking online, and am now wondering if it could possibly be herpes. What has me wondering though is that I have never had any sores or itching anywhere else. Also, I have been tested for STI's because of some surgery I needed, but do the doctors usually include herpes in the tests? And one last thing...I accidently touched my eye after touching the bump, and although the bump was almost healed, what are the chances of spreading it if it is herpes? Thanks so much...




What do we know about the history of AIDS in ...

The official scientific history regarding AIDS began in the summer of 1981. Scientific journals noted cases of a rare type of pneumonia (PCP) and Kaposi's Sarcoma (KS) amongst several groups of gay men living in large cities. These diseases are normally non-existent since a healthy immune system is able to protect people from them, yet their appearance in these gay men, who seemed to be in perfect health, suggested that something about this specific group contributed to a reduction in their immune system. This syndrome was subsequently named GRID (gay-related immune disorder).
