I recently had unprotected sex and immediately after I was sore. Within 5-10 hours a developed a thicker yellowish/green discharge and it became uncomfortable to urinate. I’m wondering if it’s possible to have symptoms of an STD this early? And can an std be passed from my fingers to a mans genetalia? Thank you.
Hi, and thank you for your question It would be pretty unusual to develop symptoms of an STI that quickly after possibly being exposed. A very likely culprit of the soreness you felt might have been due to friction and not enough lubrication during insertive sex. Sometimes adding some extra lubricant can really help with comfort and with preventing damage to the skin such as small tears.... Read Full Answer
My hand get quite deep cut and was bleeding. This cut was dressed with plaster. After that I had contact with some guy. During our meeting the plaster slid down from the cut. Is there any risk when my bloody skin get contact with his penis after ejaculation or his bleeding scratch on the body? This contact was quite short (when I noticed it I take hand from him), but it leaves some blood stains on his skin. Could you let me know your comments, please?

We typically don’t get these infections simply by... Read Full Answer

If you have sex with an ongoing partner that has not been treated for the infection, you will likely get it back again. Let us know if this does not answer... Read Full Answer
5 months ago I broke out in a rash on the head of my penis and my testicles became red and burned. For a short period of time it burned to urinate. I went and got tested for the standard std's at the 1 and 3 months mark and all clear. I am wondering if there are any std's that are not included in the standard tests that this could have been? I believe I was tested for chlamydia, ghonorea, syphilis, Hep abc, HIV, and Herpes. So, it can't have been any of these as the tests were negative. I...
Hi, and thanks for your question It sounds like you got a very thorough set of testing done. With negative results at 1 and 3 months, you can be reassured that the tests are accurate as the window periods for any infection have passed. The window period is the time between when a person comes in contact with a sexually transmitted infection (STI) and when the STI will show up on a test.... Read Full Answer
