User :   i had around 6 six years back bitten a lady on her hand. This did not lead to abrasion nor blood coming out. is there a chance to get sexually transmitted diease now or HIV. Last year i had done Rapid Test for HIV before Piles operation and the result came as non reactive. Pl adivse I am scared.
This i am asking now as my wife has been recently diagonised with pelvic inflamatory diease. We do not have any other partners                                                  
Doctor :   Hi

Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   That is not related to your wife's condition as such
Doctor :   and also through biting
Doctor :   there has not been a case reported
Doctor :   till now
Doctor :   through that route
Doctor :   so it is less likely
Doctor :   and last year you have got the test repeated
Doctor :   so there is no issue
Doctor :   Are you with me?
User :   yes
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   Are you getting it?
User :   i am very afraid of late i having some oozing from penis ie there is some slight stain in the underwear and have little pricking pain in the penis end and have light irriatation during urine do i have sexually transmitted diease
Doctor :   that is not a specific symptom for HIV as such

I am very scared whether i got AIDS from that lady though i did not have sexual intercourse and just had bit her hand hard. pl seek your advise
Doctor :   Ok

Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   then it has no correlation in your case
Doctor :   and cannot be attributed to do anything
User :   is it possible for one to contract sexually transmitted diease even with one partner and when both did not have sexual relationships with other except husband and wife
Doctor :   Yes, but not HIV
Doctor :   but other bacterial infections
Doctor :   not sexually transmitted
Doctor :   but infection of the private part
Doctor :   for example if your wife has bacterial infection
Doctor :   in her vagina
Doctor :   which could be due to some contamination around her private part
Doctor :   and it gets transmitted to you
Doctor :   if you have intercourse with her
