endo saidcould you imagine one day being able to take a pill and not having to wear condoms?
Not unless that pill prevented every STD, but, yes, it would be very beneficial if it prevented HIV.
Many of the other STDs can be caught whether you wear a condom or not.
Whoa, no, only herpes can potentially be caught when you are *wearing a condom. And that is highly unlikely unless your condom is too small for you.. And to what Chainers was saying it's true the HIV is the one that concerns most people. That and herpes, because they are viruses. The rest are bacterial infections which can be cured with antibiotics. Just saying.
And I also don't think the whole pill thing could ever work. I mean it's a nice thought, but I don't buy it.
Wow, that is way wrong information. You can catch herpes, syphilis and HPV even if you're wearing a condom.
lol. Thats not true buddy, and I'm not talking about oral sex. I'm talking about anal/vaginal sex. There is virtually NO risk if you are using a condom properly that fits properly.
If someone dries themselves off with a towel and they have HPV.. and 5 minutes later u use that towel and it touches your ass / genitals, it can spread.
25% of people have HPV already. Most do not know it because 90% of cases do not show symptoms. Some strains cause warts, while others do not. The same strain may cause warts in one person but not another. People who show no symptoms can still spread it just as easily and the person that gets it could get warts when the person they got it from never would have.
Basically, you probably will get HPV in the next 5 years, if you do not already have it.
And that's not counting oral HPV transmission which causes throat cancer.
Yeah I was reading about HPV (more) last night. The good news is that your body, if healthy, can fight off many of the HPV infections, even the ones that are cancer causing.
I got the guardasil shot, which can help too.
So we're all gonna die of Throat Cancer, Anal Cancer or HIV. And even if we are virginal, and meet someone who we love and stick to that one person, if they have been with a few people (not a lot!) then they likely have cancer causing strains of HPV.
I'm not sure I'll ever have a sex life from here on out.........
