Hi A week after taking the medication you should be fine with the chlamydia in terms of it being gone and not passing it on. There are a couple possibilities that could be happening. The first one is that it is really common for people not to have symptoms of chlamydia. Is it possible that you could have had sex with an untreated partner during the week after you were treated for chlamydia (I... Read Full Answer
I have penile discharge and my private part burning is it gonorrhea
Hi It’s possible that it could be gonorrhea as it is common for this to cause discharge from the penis and pain when urinating. There are also other STI that can cause similar symptoms as well for example chlamydia. I would recommend going to a clinic to have it looked at. They will do some testing for you as well as probably offer you some treatment given the symptoms you are experiencing,... Read Full Answer
Hi, I am gay and gave unprotected oral sex to another male twice in June: one was on June 4th and the other is on June 19th. My question is whether I had high risk exposures to hiv. What I could make sure are that I didn’t have ulcer, gum bleeding or sore throat. But I didn’t know whether I had other cuts in my mouth which I never realized. The first oral sex was pretty short and he didn’t jerk in my mouth. The second one is longer but did not jerk in my mouth either. However I know pre cum can...
Hi, Thanks for writing. Unprotected oral sex is low-risk for HIV. If the oral sex you describe is your only risk factor for HIV we would not recommend re-testing at this time. While it’s possible in theory for HIV to be transmitted through oral sex, it is very rare. Even if you had ulcers in your mouth, the risk is still low for HIV. The fact that there was no full ejaculate (only exposure to... Read Full Answer
Hello, about 1 week ago I had a very drunk night and I had sex with 8 girls and a friend of mine told me about one of the girls and how she might have aids or an sti because she’s a sex worker. I’m a teenager and I’m so afraid. I haven’t been checked yet because I am on a vacation with my family and I’ve litterally had no physical contact with any of my family members. I’ve read for hours on symptoms and sti’s. I have a metallic taste in my mouth. Tastes like blood and one time the very tip of...
Hi It can certainly be a stressful time waiting to get tested when someone is worried about what happened. It can be difficult to go off the symptoms you are experiencing as these can be caused by many different conditions or things that you have had before, but did not pay much attention to them because you were not worried about anything. Symptoms to be concerned about would be if you start... Read Full Answer
Hi Sir, I had received oral sex from a transgender. She had used condom. But I am not sure, whether that condom is teared, That transgender is HIV affected, and She had enough bleeding on her mouth. From the next 2 days onwards, I have body pain and tiredness, even my joints are paining little bit. So I am afraid of this. Could you please advise me if there is any chance of HIV infected and any tests that need to be taken. Thanks a lot if I receive a reply from you.
Hi, Thanks for your question. We do not see HIV passed to people receiving oral sex. Condoms protect against HIV, and it is usually very noticeable when condoms break or tear. Even if the condom was torn, the chance of getting HIV from that experience is still very, very low. Any blood in the mouth would be diluted by the mouth saliva. Also, if you were exposed to HIV the symptoms would not... Read Full Answer
