I'm currently away from home on overseas deployment. Three weeks ago I went to a bar, picked up a prostitute, and we had protected vaginal sex. The next morning, my penis really hurt. I figured it was down to being a little drunk and not fully hard whilst having sex, so that and the condom friction did some nerve ending damage. Anyway, three weeks later, it's still sore. I have no discharge, it doesn't hurt when I pee, there are no sores there, so I'm writing off an STD. I've taken 1g...
Hi, Thanks for writing. Without doing an assessment in person it’s hard to give you a specific answer, but I can give you some general information. If you used a condom (and there wasn’t any penetration before the condom went on, and it was still intact when you withdrew) then we would say the chance of getting an STI is very low. Did you receive unprotected oral the same night? It’s possible... Read Full Answer
Hey , me and my partner ' So I got treatment for a STI ' came back for one ' and we had oral contact ' is it possible I might have it again .
Hi I am not sure if I fully understand your question. I take it you were positive for an STI, had treatment and then had sex with an untreated partner. Let me know if I got that wrong. If the person you had sex with was not treated, depending on the STI it could be in their throat and could pass with oral contact. Given this it is possible that it could be passed back to you. I would suggest... Read Full Answer
My boyfriend and I got treated for chlamydia a week ago. I had this symptoms just like when you have a yeast infection. My down there was extremely itchy (I would scratch it here and there as the itchiness were unbearable), had a burning sensation and was secreting white cottage like things. It was one of the most uncomfortable moments of my life. I've felt better for the past couple days and plus our 7 day treatment is done. But why do I still feel burning discomfort during intercourse? Is it...
Hi there, Thanks for your question. I’m sorry to hear you have felt so uncomfortable lately. The symptoms you’re describing do sound a lot like a yeast infection. In women, symptoms include vaginal itchiness, dryness, pain and increased discharge that can be thick and looks somewhat like cottage cheese. It is very common to feel discomfort in your vagina during intercourse as well as on your... Read Full Answer
is it true that if you get chlamydia, you can cure it in the vaginal area but it still remains in the gut and can reinfect you? is there no way to get it out of the body completely?
Hi I have not heard of chlamydia doing that. Chlamydia is a common sexually transmitted infection (STI) that is caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis and is a curable STI (leave’s the body completely) when treated with antibiotics. It is common for people to have no symptoms when they have chlamydia. This means it is very important that sexual partners are treated for chlamydia as well... Read Full Answer

Hello and thanks for your question. The symptoms you describe are not HIV symptoms. If you tested for HIV at 3 months post exposure then your negative HIV test result covers the window period and is considered accurate. If you have been diagnosed with candida albicans or yeast, then at the pharmacy you can buy the recommended clotrimazole or Canesten treatment that includes an oral medication... Read Full Answer
