I had fear of HIV then i gto tested and it was negative. then i got tested for pap smear test for cervical . that was also perfectly fine.. no inflamation and nothing. again now from past week I am thinking about other STDs. last time i had unprotected sex was one and half years back and from past 10 months I havent had sex. I am single and happy. I have developed this phobia for STDs. Kindly help. I do not see any symptom. I am fine just unable to concentrate.

Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic

It appears that you could be having an anxiety disorder, which could be causing you excessive worrying and fear of having diseases. Since this anxiety is causing you significant problems like inability to concentrate and excessive guilt, you may need professional help. There are effective treatment options - in the form of medication or counselling / psychotherapy which will help you overcome these fears and negative thoughts. So, I would advise you to consult a psychiatrist for a detailed psychological evaluation and further management.

Best wishes,
Dr. Sheeba Stephen
