Please don't worry, there is no risk for HIV.

Hello,
Thank you writing in healthcare magic.

Based on your history, just shaking hand, I think you shouldn't worry because there is no risk for HIV infection, even if you have a sore in your thumb.

I sfepped over something at work I believe it was plastic restrain not certain in the garage but it made a sound though honestly if a person stepped on a needle but they have shoes on can it make a noise when that person steps on on it thanks all I know it was black

I just a bag of chips and few fries drank 3 20 ounces soda like fast now plus meatball sub with hot peppers I feel like burping but can’t cheat hurts around where the heart is pins and needles on feet and hands and like middle of chest hurts pins and needles on face can stress lead to this or the indigestion thanks

Brief Answer:
This could be just from stress.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,


Yes even the male can have the same pleasure.
If you have shoes on there even if it was needle there is no risk for infections.

This situation could be related just with stress but I think that you should do an electrocardiograme just as a precaution.

I hope my answer helps you.

Hi, I went to a Massage center last week and had Oral Sex with the worker over there. She performed annilingus on mine and also Fellatio on me but with food plastic wrap in between her mouth and my penis. I m worried that I got HIV or some other STD s because I m now experiencing minor Aches, pain in fingers of my hand and tingy ness and numbness sometimes. I did in-home Ora quick test and it resulted in negative but still worried as I m in Window period.

uhm, Heya... i find it hard to believe i'm doing this, but: I'm an 18 year old male, about 1.90m tall.. today my girlfriend came over and had condoms with her, thinking that we could do something that none of us have done before (if you catch my drift), normaly i have an errection everytime we're kissing and getting a bit "kinky", but when i tried to put the condom on, or even reach for it, my errection just vanished, each time... is it all in my mind or is there something i can do to overcome this shyness problem? (ps. this took me completley by suprise and everything)
