Question: I had protected sex (latex) about 48 hours ago. I received a call from the other party asking if I had a yeast infection as he has had a burning sensation that started a couple of hours after. What could possibly be going on?

Brief Answer:
hi and welcome to XXXXXXX

Detailed Answer:
I dont think this can be yeast or any other std infection if his/her symptoms started after few hours already. This is more likely latex allergy or iritation. So you should both wait for few more days and see will some rash,bumps,discharge or pain in genital area occur. If does,you should do std testing and then it can be easily treated. Burning sensation can be caused by uroinfection or std which is not related to sexual intercourse. Wish you good health.feel free to ask. Regards

Hi Dr. About 6 months ago, I noticed a white, sticky, fluffy discharge from my anus when I go to the toilet in the morning. The discharge is usually attached to my stool and the amount varies. It is not painful at all. I visited my local Health 4 Men clinic. I was treated for STI’s with an antibiotic. I was also treated for a possible anal fissure with suppositories. However, the discharge is still present in my stool. Lately, my anus is often itchy and the past week the tissue around the anus was tender and red. I treated it with an anti-fungal cream and it has now cleared up. For the past 2 weeks, I have been experiencing some slight abdominal pain (just below the left rib cage). This said, I was wondering whether I don’t perhaps have a Candida infection?

I urinated and wiped, from front to back, earlier today. There was a few pices of tissue that came out. One looked like a small pink string. Then an off white colored clump. And then a flat sack looking piece of tissue about the size of a dime. My cycle is supposed to start tomorrow. I have no symptoms of yeast infection. No odor or itching. When I had sex yesterday, it was creamy white, but no discharge all month. I have sore breasts and migraines, nauseous and very tired. What could this possibly be?
