I'm 20 and been sexually active for 3 years and been with my partner for 2 years. I'm extremely sexually attracted to him and love having sex but I have never reached climax and after a while I become extremely sensitive. After having sex it is quite painful to go toilet as well. Thank you for your help.

Please make an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner health center for further assessment.  There are many possible explanations for your situation. 

hi! i’m a 17 year old girl and i have some concerns. let’s just get straight into it.. so me and my boyfriend have been together for a while now and he is the first person i’ve had sex with. it hurt the first time and the second time.. and so on. we have had sex maybe about 10-15 times now.. and i still don’t feel anything. it doesn’t hurt that bad, it’s just discomfort. we are always lubed so that it goes in, but it doesn’t feel good.. is something wrong with me?

It's not unusual for people to have questions and concerns such as yours.

The best thing to do is to schedule an appointment with your primary care provider, a gynecologisy or come to the Corner Health center to discuss further. 

What is a safe, fragrance free way to keep the rear dry? I shower daily With fragrance free antibacterial soap but never feel like my bum is clean enough. Even using wet wipes just brings more moisture to the area! I know baby powder (talc) can cause cervical cancer, so I’ve been using corn starch. It doesn’t work very well. I’m not a fan of the feminine hygiene sprays, they are so perfumed, is there something I’m missing? I’d really like to be more comfortable.

Use good bathroom hygiene, shower regularly, use mild soap and towel dry.  Your body will take care of the rest.

Hi I got my first depo shot late May 2019. My next shot was due August 2019. I didn't get the shot as i did not like the side effects of the shot (i bled for 5 weeks). After not receiving the shot i got a 7 day period. I have not seen a period for this month and i took a pregnancy test which was negative. Is this normal or is it possible for me to be pregnant?

When starting and stopping depo shots it is not unusual to have irregular bleeding and changes in time of period.

Also, if you have had sexual intercourse without birth control you are at risk for unplanned pregnancy.  

Please schedule an appointment at Corner Health or with your primary care provider to discuss further and talk about other effective types of birth control.  

I'm a 24 year old male. Sometimes I look at girls and pretend it's me wearing what they are wearing. Why am I doing that? Also really want to have sex another man instead of my girlfriend.

Sounds like you are questioning your sexual identity and possibly gender. 

It would be helpful to schedule an appointment with a therapist to discuss these issues. 

Contact Corner Health or ask your primary care provider or insurance company for referrals. 

Hi, I live with an old women much elder than me. She's in her late 80's. She insists on having anal sex which I have never attempted before. What is your advice to me? Can i go ahead?

That is a personal choice

Hello, I’m 23 and I absolutely love having sex with my girlfriend, it just seems that even after I ejaculate I want more and more no matter how many times I ejaculate it’s gotten to the point where we will do it for a few hours and I will still not be satisfied and want more.

People have varying sex drives and desires.  I do not see a question in your statement.  If your need for sexual satisfaction is interfereing in your relationship or other aspects of your life then you may consider speaking with your health care provider or a therapist who may specialize in sexual health

Hi, I know i'm late to the party but I was never taught self penis care growing up. I'm 19 years old and have only recently started retracting my foreskin fully. I can pull it back fine and everything seems fine - It's a little tight when erect but over time i'm guessing it should loosen up. My question is, my gland and bell end are EXTREMELY sensitive. I very much struggle to touch them let alone properly clean myself. How do I desensitise the head of my penis? It's becoming a real problem for me! Thank you in advanced for your help

If you have questions or concerns about your penis you should schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner health center.  If needed they would refer you to a urologist who is a specialist in male reproductive organs

If i have unprotected sex and idk if he precummed in me but i do know he didnt cum in me and then i took a plan b (just in case he precum in me)48hours or maybe a couple hours less than that whats my risk of pregnancy

Research shows that if Plan B is taken 25-48 hours after sex, the effectiveness at preventing pregnancy is about  85 percent.  That means that if 100 people took the pill between 25 and 48 hours then approx 85 will not get pregnant and approx 15 will.  

My wife has dense hairs in the pubes, butt and underarm. She doesn't like to get it trimmed or shaved. Is it hygienic to have hairs in the private parts?

Routine hygiene in those areas is recommended.
