Can cancer be sextually transmitted?

I am almost 100% sure the answer to your question is "no". However, Im not sure about cervical cancer, if it has anything to do with any of that. If you know what cancer is, you will see why you cannot spread it. Basically, cancer is something that changes your cells and the way they work. Its really hard to explain, so if your really interested I would first search the internet to see what cancer is itself. I do know that cancer does not spread and just affects that person, its host(The one with cancer that your speaking of). Answer: Not directly ... but (there's always a but) the human papillomavirus (HPV) is a papillomavirus that is transmitted sexually. Some types of HPV may cause genital warts. Genital warts may lead to cervical cancer. Luckily a preventative vaccine for HPV has been developed and is available through most doctors/clinics.

If you have herpes while you're pregnant can the baby get it?

It is crucial that pregnant women infected with HSV-1 or HSV-2 go to prenatal care visits and tell their doctor if they have ever experienced any symptoms of, been exposed to, or been diagnosed with genital herpes. Sometimes genital herpes infection can lead to miscarriage or premature birth. Herpes infection can be passed from mother to child resulting in a potentially fatal infection (neonatal herpes). It is important that women avoid contracting herpes during pregnancy. A woman with genital herpes may be offered antiviral medication from 36 weeks gestation through delivery to reduce the risk of an outbreak. At the time of delivery a woman with genital herpes should undergo careful examination. If herpes symptoms are present at delivery, a cesarean delivery (also called a 'C-section') is usually performed.

If you have hurpes can you still get pregnant?

Absolutely YES! Genital herpes may be passed from one person to another through close physical contact. This means sex and practically anything else that can lead to sex. This includes kissing, oral sex, anal sex, etcetera. Genital herpes does not keep you from getting pregnant. In fact, if you or your partner have genital herpes you should see a doctor immediately. The doctor can show you how to use safer birth control so you don't pass the herpes virus to each other (or anyone else) and do his/her best to make sure you don't get pregnant. Babies born to mothers with Herpes generally contract herpes when they are born from the vagina. Many times, women with genital herpes are forced to have a caesarean delivery (when they cut her tummy open and get the baby out) just to protect the baby from getting Herpes. This is VERY SERIOUS! See a doctor and learn what to do to protect yourself and your partner and NOT get pregnant until you learn more.
