Question: I have been with a questionable girl whom gave me oral sex without protection. An escort to be exact. I was with here on Thursday night. On Friday night I was with my girlfriend. Could I have infected my girlfriend as soon as (1) day. This was the only sexual contact I have had other than my girlfriend in 20 years. Is s
he at risk if I this other woman had an unoticable infection after such a short period ?

Brief Answer:
Organisms not present in body fluids for 72 hours

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome to HCM.

Thanks for posting your query.

STDs are more than 30 in number. Certain STDs like gonorrhea can become infectious within few hours after the infection as it confined local area of genitals.
But infections like HIV, Hepatitis spreads through exchange of body fluids. In HIV, disease gets established only after 72 hours usually. Then only virus would be present in blood,semen or vaginal fluid. So theoretically your girl friend would not get infections that can spread through exchange of body fluids whereas STD affect local tissues of genitalia may be infectious from the hour one itself.
But Medicine is not Mathematics to get constant answers. Deviations can not be ruled out. I hope that you got the point.

Redness observed which showed up 3 days ago. No bumps sores, nothing. Just redness which is starting to disappearing today. I viewed the area thru a magnifying glass to make absolutely sure there were no very small sores or bumps. Nothing.

I know , I know, I am getting tested tomorrow. However should I worry at this point for the redness. Urin touches it at times and there is slight irritation.

Brief Answer:
Yeast or topical irritants cause redness of penis

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome back.

Redness of penis may be due to either mild abrasion, or due to some applications like antiseptics or due to soaps. Yeast infection is another possibility of redness without any sore or blisters.
Consult your Dermatologist. He/she will help you in this regard.
Get well soon,

I had unprotected oral sex with a girl I met at a party 5 days ago. She performed fellatio on me. The very next day I had a slight burning sensation at the tip of my penis. This got much worse the next day and so I sought out a doctor who suggested it was likely a fungal infection of the urethra caused by an infection in the girls mouth. I am booked to have an STD check after two weeks have elapsed just to check if it s something like chlamydia or gonorrhea. The burning sensation is nearly gone after two days of anti fungal medication and I have had no burning while peeling or discharge and my urine is clear. Does the diagnosis sound correct to you? Thanks

Hi I have the chills and nausea off and on. I also have vaginal pain and genital discomfort along with achy kidney. I do not have gonorrhea or trichanomonis or chylimidia or uti/kidney infection or stones as I have tested negative for them. What could be going on?

My 21 year old boyfriend was treated for chlamydia and gonorrhea about 2 days ago and still complains of stinging and itching after urination and I'm having an unusual amount of white discharge lately, no smell. What could be wrong? Could it be something other than chlamydia? Could it be warts or herpes?

I had unprotected sex 3+ weeks ago and since then have had an ongoing tingling sensation just under the head of my penis. I was tested for chlamydia and gonorrhea negative. The pain usually subsides when I sleep and comes back once I wake up. It seems the pain is mostly linked to when I am sitting. There is no burning sensation while peeing.
