If you've seen my recent post about wondering if I had herpes or not, I was told that it's normal to have pimples near the hair that i shave, but i just noticed that there are some like at the upper end of my shaft where there is no hair to shave. Could it still be pimples?
Also I found out that my girlfriend went to the doctor's today to get STD shots, and it isn't her first time. But she tells me not to worry, she doesn't have any STDs. Is that true? Can people get shots for STDs if they dont have them? If not, what STD's need shots and how can you get those STDs? I am very worried.
It could still be a pimple even if there appears to be no hair there. After all, girls get pimples on their faces even though there isn't really any hair there. We still have tiny hair follicles and pores that can get clogged over our whole body even if you don't see any hair there.
It is possible that she is getting a vaccine then. I do not know a whole lot about STD vaccines, but I believe the FDA approved an HPV vaccine about a year and a half ago.
I understand why you would be curious, confused, and concerned, but why not ask her? She would know exactly what she is getting shot for and why better than we would. Communication is pretty important in relationships, especially when you're dealing with sex and possible STDs. Some of that can be life or death stuff. If she tells you exactly what she is getting and why, then you could even ask her to bring home a pamphlet from the doctor or look it up on the internet if you want to know more about it.
About 75-80% of the population will have HPV.Most people show no symptoms.Men are often carriers of the virus with no symtoms(there is currently no test for hpv in men).There is over 100 types of hpv.
The shot that your girlfriend is getting is the vaccine to prevent the HPV strains that could give her cervical cancer.The company that made the vaccine avaliable is Merrick.
The fact that she is getting this vaccine should make you happy!
