Doctor :   Yes, there are chances of STD's.
Doctor :   The chance of HIV infection is low to almost negligible though.
User :   there was no ejaculation.
User :   The woman had no sores on her mouth.
Doctor :   Ejaculation is not the criteria.

Doctor :   The following details are only for information.

Doctor :   burning sensation/pain during urination
Doctor :   discharge (foul smelling) from the urethra,
Doctor :   ulcers, rashes, sores developing over the shaft/glans of the penis.
Doctor :   These symptoms can indicate an infection.
Doctor :   If you notice such symptoms, then you need to report to a doctor.
Doctor :   2. An alternate means of ruling out,
User :   I have not had any of those symptoms. Do you recommend I go see a doctor ?
Doctor :   is by getting the tests for STD's at the STD clinic.
Doctor :   The chances of infections are low when you don't have the symptoms,
User :   Will the STD clinic give the information to my Primary care physician?
Doctor :   but as I mentioned to you, you may not have the symptoms now, as the history of exposure has been very recent one.
Doctor :   Hence, if you develop the symptoms in the future, then you need to report to your doctor.
Doctor :   The details given at the STD clinic are usually kept confidential.
User :   Should I go to the STD clinic tomorrow just to be safe?
Doctor :   Unless without your permission, details are not shared,
Doctor :   I would suggest you to consider visiting the STD clinic after a week or 2 and get the tests.
User :   pee in a cup? Blood work? what should I expect at the clinic?
Doctor :   Have you followed what I have suggested?
User :   i follow
Doctor :   You will have a physical examination, and couple of test.
Doctor :   Since your exposure was a very short one, the chances of infection when compared to others are low,
Doctor :   I suggested the test as this is the only means of ruling out the infection.(not to scare you)
Doctor :   Do you have any other query
User :   Which STD can be passed to male in this situation?
Doctor :   Based on research, the chance of HIV is close to impossible,
Doctor :   but the rest of viral and bacterial infection can occur via this route.
User :   Would penicillin kill it because I can get a penicillin prescription
Doctor :   The chances are higher, if your partner had the infection, and if the time of exposure was a long one.
Doctor :   Pencillin are effective against bacterial infections.
Doctor :   Hence, without the help of the test, I cannot predict the effectivity of pencillin against the infection.
Doctor :   Are you there?'
