A cicumcised man has less chances of getting HIV why?

I have just heard a cicumcised man has less chances of getting aids.Does that mean HIV can't be transfered through urethra to the blood stream. I know all you are talking about .can aids be transfered to the blood sream through urethra yes/no

A man uncircumcised can harbor the virus under the foreskin. If a mother choses not to circumsize she's told by the doctor when bathing the child to pull the skin back & clean the penis & skin. Look at it this way. A circumcized penis is exposed but once clean through urine or soap it's clean. But the virus can thrive in the moist, warm underskin of the foreskin & eventually can find it's way into the urethea. IN SOME COUNTRIES IN AFRICA where AIDS is epidemic, the WHO (World Health Organization) is now, after many medical studies, are urging MEN to get circumcised to help slow down the spread of the AIDS virus! Really! I couldn't believe what I was hearing! It was on the evening news out of France. According to new medical studies, If an uncircumcised man has sex with an infected partner and doesn't use a condom, the virus can live much longer under the foreskin because it is warm, moist, and more consistant temperature. If the guy is circumcised, then the virus dies off much more quickly because it doesn't have that warm moisture, therefore has less chance of getting into a bloodvessel on or under the glands. A note for swabbie. The mesh holes in a condom are 10x the size of the aids virus. Condoms only reduce the risk. So you're still talking risky business.

I had unprotected oral sex with a girl I met at a party 5 days ago. She performed fellatio on me. The very next day I had a slight burning sensation at the tip of my penis. This got much worse the next day and so I sought out a doctor who suggested it was likely a fungal infection of the urethra caused by an infection in the girls mouth. I am booked to have an STD check after two weeks have elapsed just to check if it s something like chlamydia or gonorrhea. The burning sensation is nearly gone after two days of anti fungal medication and I have had no burning while peeling or discharge and my urine is clear. Does the diagnosis sound correct to you? Thanks
