My partner and I carry the oral herpes virus, but ...

Hi! I want to have unprotected oral sex with my partner, but we've both had cold sores before at some point in our life, therefore, we carry the oral herpes virus. I know that having oral sex during a herpes outbreak is an absolute no-no, but I was wondering, how high (or low) is the risk of giving my partner the genital herpes virus when I don't have any oral outbreaks (or vice versa) and we have unprotected oral sex? FYI: my partner and I are monogamous and long-term.

Okay so I have this lump that hurts when I touch it on my vagina. I have been on testosterone for almost 3 years now. I also experienced appetite loss and a little bit of bleeding when I pee. I am freaking out. I am seeing my doctor on the 26th which is almost a month of waiting. I don’t want to go to the clinic because I’m trans and the ressources are pretty horrible outside of Montreal and I have generalized anxiety. I now it’s too quick but I think it might be ovarian cancer so double the freaking out. Have a good day!






Are my breasts normal in shape?

I am a 14 year old who is fairly athletic and thin and wears a 34b cup. I got my period at age 13. My nipples are not inverted but flat. Although you have assured other girls that with maturation they can stick out, I have many friends who are my age and do not have flat nipples like mine. Also my breasts tend to look pointy and not really round in shirts without a bra. Is that normal?


My sperm is sometimes transparent; does this mean I am ...

I have noticed that my sperm is sometimes clear, almost transparent. I have been on risperidone consta injection for 6 months: is this to be expected with this medication? My partner and I are trying to have a baby; does the colour of my sperm indicate that I am infertile?
