My genitals have fishy odour discharges

Sometimes these changes are part of your normal hormonal cycle, sometimes they are related to an STI, or sometimes they can be because of a yeast infection or an imbalalance of your normal vaginal...

I just had protected vaginal intercourse for 30 seconds about a month ago and I didn't have much skin to skin contact. It's been a month and I haven't had any symptoms. What are my chances of getting genital herpes or syphilis?

Before i left she said "it might or it might be not.. " Then the results came back, they only told me i had chlamydia and gohnorrhea, but said nothing about the herpes? Can those stis cause sores having it at the same time? Its been 2 years since those sores broke out, ive never had the same thing since.
Hi,Thanks for your question.Were you tested for herpes at the time you tested positive for chlamydia and gonorrhea? Because they should have done a swab on your genital sores, and if they had a positive result from the swab they would have told you. It's very likely that it wasn't herpes.As far as your past symptoms of the sores... we don't usually think of sores associated with chlamydia... Read Full Answer

Hi It’s not possible for someone to say that someone has HIV because of a low percentage of lymphocytes and the symptoms you described, as this can be caused by other medical conditions and is not specific to just HIV. But I could see why someone would be concerned especially after a sexual risk that could have passed HIV. A HIV test is really specific for HIV and since you did the test... Read Full Answer
