I only have two partners, righty and lefty, I know that it is dangerous to not be monogomous, but I keep a close watch to make sure neither of my bitches stray from me.

Six partners. Mrs. Palm and her five daughters.

Is it murder if you knowingly give AIDs to somebody?

"For sexually active women not in a mutually monogamous relationship, limiting the number of partners may also help to reduce the risk", Morrison added.


Thank god for these experts, I don't know what we'd do without them.

If it ain't, it should be.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAH
That's the funniest shit I've read all week. You sir, get a prize from the $.99 porn rack.

On a more serious note, is it possible that they're more at risk for std's because they become alot more promiscious since depo is pretty safe against pregnancy?

I saw that report. I thought it was kind of stupid to say depo increases the chance. Depo and other hormone types birth control increase your changes of contracting an STD. Why? Because people aren't using condoms with them.

DUH

Just say NOT USING A CONDOM incrs your chances.

Sex is a wonderful experience. I understand it's fun to do it with someone else, too.

There are two stages in a divorce:

1. Bitter and depressed.

2. Bitter and no longer depressed.

You know what they say:

If she ain't happy, you ain't happy.

If she ain't happy long enough, you ain't happy with less than half your stuff.

I think the report (I will have to read it again) was saying that even taking into account those factors,
i.e. without protection the rates were still higher.

So yes it is good advice but this report doesn't fall fully under the "well no shit" category.

checka checka check it out.

"More study is needed, but it is possible that Depo-Provera itself causes a susceptibility to STDs, said Charles Morrison of Family Health International in Research Triangle Park, N.C., who led the study.

“We did adjust for differences in condom use, differences in multiple partners, differences in the number of sexual coital acts,” Morrison said in a telephone interview.

Inner-city and younger women also had a higher risk of STDs, but using Depo-Provera added to the risk, study study found."

We used depo provera for about 8 years. It had a LOT of bad side effects that were not publicized. Getting me snipped and getting her off the shots has been the best thing we have done.

Well the team members now know why I don't have that to worry about

Actually they took condom use into account:


This holds true even when behavior and other factors are taken into account, the research team at the National Institutes of Health, University of North Carolina and Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore found.

More study is needed, but it is possible that Depo-Provera itself causes a susceptibility to STDs, said Charles Morrison of Family Health International in Research Triangle Park, N.C., who led the study.

We did adjust for differences in condom use, differences in multiple partners, differences in the number of sexual coital acts,” Morrison said in a telephone interview.



Looks like they believe playing with the woman's hormones is what makes her more susceptible. Perhaps a body who's hormones aren't tinkered with has a better chance of fighting it off before an infection can occure?

As a contraceptive, condoms are 96% effective. So, condoms are 96% effective in the transmission of the human pregnancy germ. How much less effective are they in preventing the transmission of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus?

The human sperm cell is 25µm v.s. the HIV virus that is 0.1µm. If there is an escape of seminal fluid to allow the transmission of the sperm cells in 4% of the cases to cause pregnancy, then there is enough seminal fluid to allow the movement of HIV virii in at least the same % of the cases. I will say by logical extension due to their smaller size, a smaller amount of seminal fluid escaping would allow the successful transmission of the virus.
