Hello I had protected oral and touched a girl's clitoris for a few seconds. Im pretty sure the condom didn't break, I've had condoms break before and it's pretty obvious when they do. My two questions are can I get any STI through these activities? I had a two week 4th gen HIV test that came back negative and a 3 week rapid test that came back negative. How accurate and dependable is the two week 4th gen test? I suffer from extreme anxiety and my doctor has me on meds to get me to my 6 week...

I had been tested for STD's, and while chlamydia, gonorrhea, and hep B show negative, the likes of syphilis, HIV, and hep C were sent to BCDC. If one does test positive for the latter three, will they be contacted by a health care provider?
Hi, thanks for your question. If something went wrong with the testing, if you need to retest or if any of the test results for HIV, syphilis and Hepatitis C were positive, then you would be contacted by a nurse from the BCCDC. There is a responsibility to inform you that there is an infection detected, to offer further testing and to arrange for treatment and follow up care. Health Nurse

The most common early symptoms of burning when urinating and pus discharge from the penis will occur with gonorrhea within 3-5 days of the sexual contact. However if you have had unprotected sex prior to this encounter, it is possible for symptoms to be reflecting that past contact and would be best to... Read Full Answer
i had sex with a pronstitute 3 weeks ago i had a protected sex as I was wearing condom . i never touched her breast or anywhere else but touched her outer part of vagina I had no cuts on my fingers . my question is that can i be hiv + after this .
Hi, thanks for writing in with your concern. HIV is not transmitted by touching someone’s outer vagina with your hand. HIV is transmitted in two main ways 1. through direct contact with HIV positive blood and 2. through exposure to HIV positive sex fluids like vaginal fluids, rectal fluids or semen ( this happens when no condom is used so the tip of the penis is exposed). It sounds like you had... Read Full Answer

Hi I would not be concerned about HIV with what you have described. Performing oral sex on someone can pass HIV but the chance of this happening is low. The main reason I wouldn’t be concerned about HIV is because your HIV tests have been negative after the window period has finished. The symptoms you and your girlfriend are experiencing can be caused by many different conditions. I would... Read Full Answer
