Doctor :   Hi
User :   Hello
Doctor :   How can I help you?
Doctor :   r u thr?
User :   2 Days back I had sex for the first time, I did not use the condom properly & it was only half way up the penis...
Also after the first time when I inserted the penis into her, I was struggling to maintain the erection, so I put the penis between her breasts, then put the penis back into her. I May have also kissed her there (breast area) after sex...
After the sex I washed up & had a shower & used a shower gel (but it was a general shower gel(Palmolive aromatherapy collection) & not an anti-infection soap). We did not have any oral sex.
(I had 60 ml of vodka 4-5hrs prior to the sex & dont think I ejaculated.)
Does that pose a problem in Terms of STI or HIV?

Can u also suggest a comprehensive safe sex guide, I have not found a comprehensive guide online & I have searched a lot.
Doctor :   ok
User :   I had also cleaned up the groin area wid dettol & cotton, after wich the groin area got a lil dry & was burning a little...
Doctor :   Ideally a comprehensive safe sex guide includes - have sex with only one partner - no polygamy,
Doctor :   using protection like a condom- and using it properly
Doctor :   for an actual guide about this the ideal person to help you out would be a sex- counsellor
User :   ok, wat abt my current situation...
User :   if it matters, i am 26
Doctor :   if you do not remember what you did and the condom was not properly put on- you might have a risk of STI/ HIV
Doctor :   cleaning p the groin area with dettol is not a good idea
User :   I only do not clearly remember if i kissed her in the area close to the breast, whr i had put the penis wid condom on it(after removing it from inside her)

User :   so wat shd i do next?
Doctor :   if you have done that- yes there is a small risk of having exposed yourself to a STI
User :   are all STI curable?

Doctor :   or HIV

Doctor :   not all
User :   ok

Doctor :   who was the girl you had sex with?
User :   she was a foreigner...wasnt a prostitute

Doctor :   ok- see there is no sure way of knowing whether you have exposed yourself- there is a small possibility- and

Doctor :   what you can do is just be careful in the future -
Doctor :   do you have any previous health problems?
User :   no long terms health issues

Doctor :   ok
User :   I want to get tested as a precaution
Doctor :   if you are worried and you feel that you might have exposed yourself- it is best for you to see a sexologist
Doctor :   see the test for HIV will take 3 months to show a result
User :   yes I am aware that HIV takes a min 3 mths to a max of 6 mths (even 12 mths at times) to show that test will be later, wat abt STIs
Doctor :   you do not need testing for STI's unless you have symptoms
Doctor :  
Pls see a sexologist for further assistance - if you are in Bangalore you can find them on our homepage - search doctors feature
User :   1 thing, my scrotum area/are beneath the penis has been very very dry (which is nt normal), this is after I applied the dettol ...wat shd i do abt that
Doctor :   as you have rightly said- it is because of the detol
Doctor :   detol is very harsh on the skin- don't use that again- you can use a regular moisturizer/ cold cream for soothing effect
User :   ok
Doctor :   on the affected area
User :   I fr the next 2 mths, do u hv any experrt list in mumbai?

Doctor :   Is there anything else I can help you with?

Doctor :   r u thr?
User :   yes
User :   gv me a moment to type
User :   thr is a slight irritation/itch on the head of my penis...
User :   its very slight
Doctor :   any whitish color - flaking or burning sensation?
User :   no burning sensation
Doctor :   did you use detol on your penis as well?
User :   no flaking also...but the scrotum area wich i said was very dry, maybe a lil dry skin which may be 1st signs of laking
User :   yes i did apply dettol ojn my penis
Doctor :   if you have slight itching only- just wash the area thoroughly with a mild soap after retracting the foreskin
User :   ok

Doctor :   if you do see any redness/ whitish flakes- it could be a sign of a fungal infection- for which you will need a physical examination

User :   alright
User :   will keep that in mind
Doctor :   the treatment for a fungal infection is simple- and this is a common occurrence - nothing to be very worried about
User :   this examination shd be done by a sexologist rt?
Doctor :   a dermatologist/venerologist will also do.
Doctor :   ok

Bye for now.
