Social anxiety kissing

Common Questions and Answers about Social anxiety kissing


Avatar m tn One evening a male friend gave me a brief peck on the lips (not vigorous or French kissing. Nothing else physical occurred that evening. The next evening (a day later) and into the next morning, I felt like I was coming down with the flu (body aches, slight fever, fatigue). My anxiety level did escalate, so that afternoon, I went to a walk-in clinic, they tested me for the flu strain which came back negative.
Avatar n tn It is possible that your granddaughter is suffering from social anxiety. You might wish to google phrases as "childhood anxiety" or "social anxiety in children" or similar words/phrases to read more about this issue. One question - does she speak to strangers or just "hide behind someone's back"?
Avatar m tn Yesterday I decided to put an end to my paranoia and I met up with a guy I talked to on gay social media app. We got along great and one thing lead to another and we started kissing like animals for an hour or so. The kiss got quite agressive and intense at times and at one point he bit my lip a little (just that once). We were fully clothed but I dod touch his penis while him wearing underwear and dry humping a little.
Avatar n tn This is what I found at the CDC web site and the date of this information was from 1999. Casual contact through closed-mouth or "social" kissing is not a risk for transmission of HIV. Because of the potential for contact with blood during "French" or open-mouth kissing, CDC recommends against engaging in this activity with a person known to be infected. However, the risk of acquiring HIV during open-mouth kissing is believed to be very low.
Avatar m tn Welcome to the STD forum. Dr. Hook and I take questions interchangably. We have worked closely together for 3 decades and for practical purposes our opinions and advice are identical, although our wording and styles may differ. Reacting first to the opening paragraph: Although technically correct that oral HSV-2 can be acquired by oral sex, the "tone" of your comment is wrong. As you were told by Terri Warren on the herpes forum, oral HSV-2 is very rare.

Realizing my zilch appetite for all forms of STDs, I engaged in unprotected oral sex ( there was no ejaculation). After this encounter, I did not went for further test since oral sex, protected or not, was not deemed a risk exposure. I have no further exposure to any form of intimacy ever since.
Avatar n tn Hello Dr., and thanks in advance for your time. Here's my situation: Around the end of June 2005, I (younger, male) fooled around with another (older) male whom I had been dating. He performed unprotected oral on me(very briefly, probably 1 minute max), I performed oral on him (extremely briefly, probably 3 second max), and some "deep" open-mouth kissing (which has me most worried, but no blood present that I know of).
Avatar f tn I have had unprotected encounters (or should I say encounter) some years ago and that is what triggered my anxiety over the disease. During this time, I have had two full STI's tests including HIV and they both have come back negative and each were when I was out of the window period. I guess my question is, is there a chance that I could still have HIV? Perhaps the tests were done wrong both times and I got a false-negative test back each time.
1430466 tn?1291997896 Hello all! Lately, this past month I have been overcome with paranoia and anxiety about my sexual health. I have hpv..possibly more than one strain for over 5 years (diagnosed around 17, am now 22) and it's upsetting that my body hasn't been able to control it completely yet. Onto hsv1 I've been tested for hsv2, twice in the past yr. Results are negative. Now, hsv1 scares me because I read it's very contagious and can be caught simply by sharing drinks...cigarettes, etc.
Avatar m tn It involved deep kissing, protected fellatio, unprotected cunnilingus, and protected sex. I did notice a certain amount of redness on her lip (mouth) and asked her afterwards if it was, in fact, herpes. She said no, just acne. Should I now consider myself at risk for anything? A lot of my anxiety has to do with the redness on her lip. Understand, that I don't, at all, consider her some harbinger of disease. She's a human being just like all of us and deserves as much respect.
Avatar f tn I was just wondering if anyone has been on birth control pills and have suffered from anxiety or depression issues? I have been on the pill for 11yrs now and cant take how I am feeling anymore. I went on the pill for irregular periods, but since then I have been feeling blah, libido has decreased severely, I have sinus problems- I found out I have no allergies- so I think it is related to axiety, I worry constantly about everything; I get so nervous I get light headed sometimes.
Avatar n tn In one moment we are kissing or holding hands, and the next moment it's me throwing up the minimum quantity of food I had eaten. It's horrible, it had made my life HELL. I am so tired of this problem, it ruined my social life and the way i feel about myself. It's a circule of guilt, starvation, love, hate, and depression. I hope one day I can get a healthy relationship / date and enjoying it. Like truly, deeply. I am 25 years old, and never enjoyed a date.
Avatar m tn For a good year my head pounded with this fear, i have never been attracted to guys before i have always been turned by girls never guys, i have had anxiety attacks and depression feelings. I have never seen myself dating a guy or kissing one. One day it finally went away and didn't come back for about 3 years. Last week the feeling came back, same old head pounding and anxiety, the other night i read about HOCD and realized that was possibly what i had.
Avatar n tn I had a contact with a lady in Indonesia on social media. I am not aware of her HIV status, may be not a prostitute as she never asked money. We had oral sex (she sucked my penis without condom) and deep kissing. Before she came I had brushed my teeth and there was blood from one of my gums due to flossing. What kind of risk I have now as I am worried and my thinking has got numb. 1, Insertive blow job without condom. 2. French kissing, in case she is HIV and I had bleeding gum.
Avatar n tn I urged him to see a psychiatrist, but he went to his regular doctor, instead. He has had constant anxiety, panic attacks, eye twitching, not sleeping, etc for years. He says the meds are working great and he has never felt better. However, he has NO sex drive. Not even interested anymore. So now he's happier than he's ever been, but now I'm the one who feels down because he doesn't want me sexually anymore.
Avatar m tn I know this kind of question has been posted a few times before but i am slightly different. Unfortunately due to my severe anxiety conditions (OCD, Social Anxiety Disorder, Body Dysmorphia and Hypochondria) i have found it very difficult to form any kind of relationship with the opposite sex. I have been addressing my anxiety conditions with SSRI's and CBT.
Avatar n tn I was wondering if highly contagious STD like herpes and hpv which can transmit through just physical contact transmit in daily activity such as sharing food, dinning utensils, using the same bathroom or just coming into physical contact with a person who might have touched a infected part before touching you? Also because i know that these two STDs can be transmitted through kissing, does that make saliva of a infected person dangerous?
Avatar f tn I have always thought I was straight until a few months ago. I think it started because I saw a woman kissing another woman and I thought " what if I'm not straight???? " and it went on and got worse from there. I started getting really bad anxiety, to the point where I wanted to kill myself and just cry all day long. I stopped having so much anxiety from it and I stopped getting the thoughts for a few weeks and now its back.
Avatar m tn (Especially since in this part of the word, non-social kissing, at least publicly, isn't as prevalent as in the west where I have read kissing by a relative with a cold sore is what transmits the virus to kids) I am not sure what the implications of this are on future marriage, do we just assume this is a non-issue. Thanks once again.
Avatar n tn Sure, you might have been at risk from kissing an infected person, but that could include social kissing of friends just as well as sexual (open mouth) kissing. The lesions you describe on your lips don't sound like herpes. Anyway, half of all people have oral HSV-1, mostly acquired in childhood -- so you might already have it, unrelated to the events described here. Of course if you continue to have oral lesions that concern you, visit a health care provider for diagnosis.
Avatar f tn As an adult, oral herpes is almost exclusively transmitted thru romantic type kisses, not social kisses. You really don't have to worry about this is by chance you don't already have hsv1 yourself.
Avatar n tn In addition, you might wish to discuss this anxiety with your daughter's doctor as anxiety does not go away nor will your daughter outgrow it. The good news - anxiety responds well (and usually quickly) to proper treatment. Hope this helps ...
Avatar m tn It is silly to be worried about oral herpes from a single kiss -- and it sounds like your lips barely touched hers anyway. Considering normal social kissing (a peck on the cheek with friends), you undoubtedly have had many other potential exposures without catching HSV-1. There is just as much chance your friends and relatives have oral herpes as the dancer does. Accept the reassurance you have been given and stop even thinking about this event. That's all for this thread.
Avatar n tn SM (short form for selective mutism) is a severe form of anxiety (usually social but could be separation, generalized or any combination). Children with severe anxiety usually are able to "hold it together" in social situations (eg. school) but "fall apart" when they return to a safe and comfortable place (eg. home). This, I suspect, is what you are seeing. Treatment for sm is a multi-modal approach involving intervention, therapy and. if necessary, medication.
Avatar n tn You cannot catch HIV from the exposures you describe--the risk is lower than the chance you will die of some unexpected accident or illness (not HIV!) in the coming week. The level of anxiety and fear you express is truly irrational and abnormal. Australia has the world's best network of STD clinics, called sexual health centers. There are SHCs in all major cities. Visit one for personal evaluation and reassurance. They also can tell you what specific HIV tests are done there.
Avatar n tn I am having trouble finding people who do more than just read the DSM-IV. My son clearly has issues of anxiety, social skills, does innapropriate behaviors to kids at school (hugging, kissing, grabbing) and has difficulty with school (he hates it.) He also has fears and trouble getting thoughts out of his mind. But he still is in main stream school in second grade. How did the diagnostic process work for others of you?
Avatar m tn Hi, i have posted a few questions on other forums but have had so may things told i don't know what the difinitive answer is 1) I had unprotected oral sex with a man about 2 months ago. Am I at risk of contracting Hep B from his saliva? 2) He was also kissing me but i stopped after about 5 kisses. 3) He also fingered my anus, quite sure there was no pre *** on his hand 4) If i was positive for it, but only had acute infection, could my body get rid of the virus?
Avatar m tn Hello, I hope you can help me. I am a 23 year old guy. I admit having severe anxiety issues and I am diagnosed with OCD. I decided to stop being "paranoid" and met up with a guy from a gay social networking site. Earlier that day (morning) I bit my lip a little while eating.
Avatar m tn I have only ever had crushes on girls but in the long run have failed miserably I also have insomnia and social anxiety as well as an extremely low self esteem I did have occasional gay fantasies but so little i can count them on my hands and they were mainly out of curiosity. Anyway heres the thing, one night I had a dream that I was gay (all my previous dreams were definitely heterosexual although this dream wasnt sexual in any way).
