I’ve have oral gonorrhea I’ve had it for over a year but i wasn’t sure what it was and was to embarrassed to talk about it my throat is really bothering me and is swollen can my symptoms be reversed?
Hi there,Thanks for writing.Gonorrhea is curable with antibiotics. Did you get treatment for it? You should have been given treatment from the place where you got your gonorrhea test. If you have not returned to pick-up the medication since getting your results, then I would recommend going to get the treatment.The antibiotics are very easy to take, and the infection will be gone in seven days...

What is the cost of Pap screening test which include all Hiv aids Sti and other sexual infections
Hi, Thanks for your question. HIV, STI, and PAP screening is free in BC, with the BC Carecard (aka MSP). If you have a BC Carecard you can go to your family doctor, or any walk-in clinic, to get free testing. If you do not have an BC Carecard (for example, if are not a permanent resident, or if you don't have MSP), then you can still get free testing at these STI clinics: Bute St... Read Full Answer
i broke out in red bumps, sores down there like last year. I went to go get it check out and the nurse said it might've been herpes. i got soo scared and depressed. 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. I had possible exposure on 17th July condom broke with someone tested HIV positive at 2nd August and I tested negative on the sameday after 60day I tested am value number was 0.9 non reactive at 85days I did alert determine ag/ab combined test was negative again at 14week alert determine (ab) negative my question is what are chances of being positive at another 12weeks?
Hi, The HIV antibody test, and HIV Antigen/Antibody test, are both conclusive after 12 weeks (3months). If you've had a negative result from an AG/AB test at 14 weeks, we would say that is a conclusive result and there is no need to re-test. Hope this helps, Please feel free to submit another question as needed. Health Nurse
I went to a massage parlor, where the lady got naked and gave me an erotic massage. Firstly she gave me a massage with her hands , then she used her whole body to rub against me. She kissed my face, neck and my body-though there was no french kiss, oral or penetrative sex. I have touched her vagina a bit and also the vagine might have rubber over my body including penis during massaging. The massage ended with she giving me a handjob. shes also sick and was coughing in between while massaging...
Hi, The activities you describe would not put you at risk for HIV. HIV is passed when blood and/or body fluids enter into your body through a vein or orifice. Since you describe no oral or penetrative sex, there is no risk for HIV. Other STIs, such syphilis, herpes, and the human papilloma virus are easily passed through skin-to-skin contact. It's difficult to say what's causing your... Read Full Answer
