Re: i think im allergic to sperm

Hi - Semen allergy is a genuine, relatively rare but exceptionally distressing & inconvenient condition with no obvious or clear treatment pathway. A tiny minority of women get acute anaphylaxis to sperm (where you get a severe skin rash, swelling of the throat & difficulty breathing) - but ...

Re: Genital Herpes

Hi - there are lot of things going on here, so I'll try to sort them out one by one. 1. If your HIV & Syphilis tests were negative 4 months after your assault (I assume that was the terrible experience) then you can be completely reassured that you didn't catch either of these infections. 2. Myc...

Re: 12 year old starting periods

Hi - you have slightly misinterpreted my note about PCOS - I meant to say that the subfertility caused by PCOS is the easiest form of subfertility to overcome by hormonal treatment to help conception.

Re: Getting checked out

Re: bleeding for 3 months

Hi - This is a difficult problem to advise on (and to suffer from) as you're already been to several different doctors, who haven't been able to find out what's wrong. We can be confident you don't have (extremely rare at age 19) cervical cancer,as the gynaecologist has excluded this. If you are sti...

Re: Strep B

Hi - Strep B is a naturally occurring bug which is found in the vagina in about one third of normal healthy women. It rarely causes any discharge, and most specialists in the UK do not test for it in pregnancy for this reason. Very rarely it can cause infection in a newborn infant, and the policy is...
