Questions About Genital Herpes

Genital herpes can be a confusing disease. Symptoms can look like other conditions, or there may be no symptoms at all. How can you to tell if you have it? These questions and answers will help.


Could I have genital herpes and not know?

Unless no one has ever kissed you, and unless you've never had sex, it is possible that you've picked up a herpes virus.

Oral herpes, usually caused by the herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1), shows up as cold sores or fever blisters on the mouth. Even a casual peck on the lips from someone with a cold sore can give you the virus. That's why it's so common: As many as 50% to 80% of adults in the U.S. have oral herpes.

Genital herpes, most often caused by the second type of herpes virus (HSV-2), is less common, but plenty of people still have it. Roughly one in five U.S. adults has genital herpes. But up to 90% of those who have it don't know they are infected. You could be one of them.


What are some signs that I might have genital herpes?

Often it's hard to tell by looking. The textbook symptom of genital herpes is a cluster of small fluid-filled blisters that break, forming painful sores that crust and heal during several days. Affected areas include the penis, scrotum, vagina, vulva, urethra, anus, thighs, and buttocks.

But many people don't get these sores. Some people have no symptoms at all, while others get symptoms that can be easily mistaken for razor burn, pimples, bug bites, jock itch, hemorrhoids, an ingrown hair, or a vaginal yeast infection.

After you're infected, the symptoms go away, but can flare up from time to time. Luckily, the first outbreak usually is the worst. And some people may have just one or two outbreaks in their lifetime.


Is there a test for genital herpes?

Yes. A doctor can take a sample from what appears to be a herpes sore and send it to a lab to be examined. You can also have a blood test. The blood test looks for antibodies to the virus that your immune system would have made when you were infected. HSV-2 almost always infects the genitals, so if antibodies to HSV-2 are detected in the blood, you probably have genital herpes.

A blood test that shows antibodies to HSV-1 means you could have genital or oral herpes. That's because oral herpes, typically caused by HSV-1, can be spread to the genitals during oral sex.


If I don't have herpes now, how can I avoid it in the future?

The only sure-fire way to avoid getting genital herpes is to abstain from sex or have sex only with someone who is also herpes-free. Short of that, a latex condom offers some protection if it covers the infected area. Remember, you can get genital herpes by receiving oral sex (fellatio, cunnilingus, analingus) from someone with a cold sore on the mouth. Likewise, you can get oral herpes from someone's genitals by way of oral sex.

If you know that a sex partner has genital herpes, you can reduce your risk by having sex (vaginal, anal, or oral intercourse) only when he or she has no symptoms. Nevertheless, genital herpes can be contagious even when there are no visible symptoms, so you should always use a latex barrier, such as a condom or a dental dam.

tudies are underway currently to investigate medicated gel products that can be placed in the vagina to reduce the transmission of herpes and HIV. These may be available in the near future.


What's the big deal? Can genital herpes kill you?

Genital herpes is rarely life threatening. But having herpes sores makes it easier for HIV, the virus that causes AIDS, to enter the body. Not only is there an increased risk for getting HIV if you have genital herpes, but having the two diseases together may also make each one worse.

A pregnant woman can pass genital herpes on to her baby, so it's particularly serious during pregnancy. If you get infected near the end of pregnancy, the risk is highest. At least 30% and as many as 50% of newly infected pregnant women give the virus to their babies. For moms who were infected long before delivery, the risk is much lower. Less than 1% of babies born to mothers with an older genital herpes infection get the virus. And if a woman has an outbreak at delivery, a cesarean section (C-section) is usually done.


Venereal diseases or VD's are sexually transmitted diseases, and in just about every case they are highly contagious. Infection normally occurs through sexual contact with another infected person. In this context sexual contact refers to oral, anal and vaginal sex. Most venereal diseases require the exchange of bodily fluids to be contagious, but in some cases skin-to-skin contact is all that it will take.
Depending on the disease, STDs can be spread with any type of sexual activity. STDs are most often caused by viruses and bacteria.
One reason STDs spread is because people think they need to have sexual intercourse to become infected. That's wrong. A person can get some STDs, like herpes or genital warts, through skin-to-skin contact with an infected area or sore.

Another myth about STDs is that you can't get them if you have oral or anal sex. That's also wrong because the viruses or bacteria that cause STDs can enter the body through tiny cuts or tears in the mouth and anus, as well as the genitals.

A medical examination may be necessary if a person believes he or she may have an STD or if he or she may have been exposed to someone with an STD. Being seen by a doctor as soon as possible after exposure to an STD is important; these infections can easily spread to others and can have serious complications.

Penis is too small to satisfy girl - Sex positions for men with a small penis

This is also a common problem affecting young male population. There is a belief that bigger the penis, more satisfied the female is. Generally boys, while passing urine, may see the penis of the person nearby or may see a macho man performing sexual intercourse in a porn movie. Sometimes people may brag about their penis size and sexual power. This can produce inferiority complex .Remember, people generally tell lies about their sexuality They shouldn’t be taken on their face value.

What is adequate size of penis to satisfy a female? 
Human vagina is about 3 inches long when not aroused. Its walls are very elastic and can even stretch to the extent of delivering a baby. It adjusts itself according to the length and girth of penis.Satisfaction is derived from the rubbing between the erect penis and outer one third of vaginal wall. If you have smaller penis, just enough to penetrate the vagina, you can satisfy a female as well as a person having bigger penis 

Micropenis is a condition when erect penile length is less than 7 centimetres or 2 inches. It can be due to genetic background or endocrinopathies. 

Sex positions for men with a small penis

Obviously the problem with having a small penis is that you can't get deep penetration as easily as men who have a large penis. But is this really a problem? Well, that depends on your point of view: deep penetration is very satisfying and can produce profoundly fulfilling sensations for men; some women like it, especially if they're stimulated by having your penis touch their cervix. (Though some women find this painful, for others it's the key to a powerful orgasm.) If you do want the pleasure of plumbing her depths, then there are several positions that can help you get deeper into her.

Doggy style or rear entry
There's no danger of falling out of her in the doggy position even if you have a small penis, provided you position yourselves correctly and comfortably. This means adjusting your respective heights (e.g. you stand on something, she raises or lowers her bottom) so you have easy and smooth access to her vulva. You get the enjoyable sight of her rear end, you get deep penetration, and you can good pressure on your penis if she keeps her legs together and/or lowers her head and neck onto a pillow while keeping her bottom raised.

Woman lies face down and man enters her from behind
The woman lies face down on her belly and keeps her legs together, as you kneel, your knees outside her legs, one on each side of her, ready to enter her. For you to get into her in the first place she may have to open her legs a bit more, but once you're in she can close them, which will produce good sensations for you both. It's often helpful if she places a pillow under her pelvis, so that her hips are raised. You'll find you can then enter her more easily.

She lies on her back and you hold her legs in a V-formation
The starting position for this is that she lies on her back and you enter her from a semi-kneeling position. Then you hold her ankles and raise them into a V formation, holding her legs up and apart. You can thrust deeply, but it does take some flexibility to do this.

She lies on her back and raises her legsIn fact, she may raise her legs right back so that her knees are on her chest, her ankles around her ears. This opens her vulva to your gaze, and allows you to penetrate her easily and deeply.

Man on top with her pelvis tilted upwards with a pillow under her bottom

This is a very good one for deep penetration and thrusting by the man. However, as in all these positions, it's important to remember that even though women may be turned on by the sight of a large penis, they often don't particularly want one inside them. The secret of sexual success is to get her really aroused before you enter her, and then to snuggle close and deep, kissing her as you penetrate her as deeply as possible. This s the ultimate romantic, sexy and loving embrace.

Although many women find big penises visually stimulating, most admit that they wouldn't like to have one inside them. So don't feel insecure if your penis is below average; there are so many ways you can make up for it as a lover.

  • Quit smoking.
  • Deal with any emotional or psychological issues such as stress, depression, and anxiety. Get treatment as needed.
  • Increase communication with your partner.

However, when the problems are persistent, they can cause distress for the man and his partner, and have a negative impact on their relationship. If you consistently experience sexual function problems, see your doctor for evaluation and treatment.

Diabetes and Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common problem amongst men who have diabetes affecting 35-75% of male diabetics.

Up to 75% of men suffering from diabetes will experience some degree of erectile dysfunction (erection problems) over the course of their lifetime.

Men who have diabetes are thought to develop erectile dysfunction between 10 and 15 years earlier than men who do not suffer from the disease.

As men facing diabetes age, erectile dysfunction becomes more common.
Over the age of 70, there is a 95% likelihood of facing difficulties with erectile function. 

What causes erectile dysfunction amongst diabetics?
Causes of ED are extremely complex, and are based around changes that occur to the body over time affecting nerve, muscle and blood vessel functions.

In order to obtain an erection, men need to have healthy blood vessels, nerves, male hormones and a desire to have sex.
Without blood vessels and nerves that control erection, ED can still occur despite a desire to have sex and normal male hormones.

Factors amongst men
Many other factors bear on erectile dysfunction amongst diabetic men.
These include:
  • Being overweight
  • Smoking
  • Taking too little exercise and other lifestyle factors.
Surgery can damage nerves and arteries linked to the penis, as can some injuries.

Many common medications (including antidepressants and blood pressure drugs) can produce ED.

Psychological factors also have an enormous influence. 

Anxiety, guilt, depression, low self-esteem and paranoia about sexual failure are estimated to cause between 10% and 20% of ED cases.

Which treatment is the best for diabetes and ED?
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a condition that many men will end up suffering from at some period in their life. While ED may be a sign of a more serious complication such as diabetes or heart disease and warrants a visit to your physician, sometimes, especially in younger men, it may be something simple that triggers it. Stress, cigarettes and excessive drinking (alcohol) have all been known to trigger ED. While pharmaceutical giants have tackled the problem of ED and have come up with extremely popular drugs such as Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra, there are many herbal and natural remedies out there that a man can use to treat his problem. However, if deciding to use a herbal remedy, be sure to still consult your doctor before doing so. While something might be derived from nature, it still could interact in a bad way with any prescription medications that you happen to be taking. Double-checking with your health care professional and reading all the information on the label of what it is that you are taking is always a good idea.

There are a number of different herbal remedies out there that claim to improve the condition of erectile dysfunction. In order to understand how these natural remedies work, it is important to understand how an erection is achieved in the first place. The first step is sensory stimulation (tactile or imagery) of the brain. Once the brain is stimulated, it sends signals down to the nervous system setting things in motion. The nerves surrounding the penis are vital in maintaining an erection. If they are not working properly the achieving and maintaining an erection becomes a difficult task. Once the nerves are stimulated, then the circulatory system kicks in, sending blood flowing into the shaft, causing it to become engorged and erect. As men age, the circulatory system does not function as properly as it once did resulting in poor blood flow to the penis.

All three of these stages of arousal can be enhanced with herbal and natural remedies. Natural remedies that promote a state of relaxation can help men who suffer from Erectile dysfunction.
