User :   Hi, I masterbated with my friend and he touched the tip of my penis after playing with the tip of his. He had precum on his fingers when he touched me for only about 10 seconds. Should I worry that I could have gotten exposed to an STD?
The problem is that I am married, and I don't want to expose my wife to anything.
Doctor :   Hi
User :   Hi
Doctor :   let me read
Doctor :   when did this happen ?
User :   Last Thursday
Doctor :   after that do you have nay urinary symptoms ?
User :   I have had a prostrate issue off and on for a year. I have a slight burning sensation when I urinate sometimes. After this incident, I have noticed a slight burning sensation at times.
User :   That is the only thing that I have noticed.
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   the behavior is definitely risky
User :   I should mention that he claims he is faithful to his wife and has not had an std. I know that i have never done anything like this since I have been married.
Doctor :   it can cause transmission of any std or hiv if the person is infected
User :   Is it too early to get get tested for an std?
Doctor :   std will come up with symptoms
User :   Would the symptoms show up in a few days or would it take several weeks?
Doctor :   if you don't have the symptoms developed with in the week probably you have very little chance of the bacterial STD
Doctor :   viral like herpes and hiv cannot be tested in such short period
Doctor :   do not get panic
User :   I guess Gonahrea (SP?) would be a concern too. Does that show up in a week?
Doctor :   gonerrhoea is a bacterial and will show up in a week
User :   so, I should not panic and just wait a week and see if I get any symptoms. I learned a valuable lesson. He was not suppose to touch me and it happened really quickly.
Doctor :   it happens at that time
Doctor :   if he is clean you escaped
Doctor :   if not what ?
Doctor :   it is a risky behavior
User :   I will go get tested if I have any symptoms, and hopefully the medicine will work. And, i might have to tell my wife.
Doctor :   better to avoid such behaviors in future
User :   I plan to not be stupid. We were watching porn, and both our wifes are not very sexual.
Doctor :   for all the STD we have medicines and it will work
User :   That is no excuse and I learned a very valuable lesson. Thank you for your help.
Doctor :   thanks for consulting health care magic
Doctor :   bye for now
User :   You have a great service. Take care. Bye!
