Question: Hello doctor..

I've had certain partners in the last year till last week ( three women and two TSs ) that happened in different periods of time. All of my sexual relationships were protected by condoms. However, I've given and gotten oral sex with some of them. Even thought, I haven't had or felt any symptoms so far, I decided today to check up just to make sure. I did check up and I'm HIV negative, but the other STD infections' results, included Hepatitis B and C will be known in 7 to 10 days. So my question is/ Can I get any STD infections or any type of Hepatitis while I'm an HIV negative?
I know that everyone could say with full confidence just wait till you receive the results except you doctor because you're the only one who is informed about how this wait is extremely harsh.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for writing to us.

With protected penetrative exposures and unprotected oral sexual intercourse the possibility of HIV, Hepatitis and other STDs are rare. So far, you had no symptoms of STD in the form of ulcers, sore throat or vesicles, so you need not worry about Major STDs.
You didn't mention whether someone ejaculated in to your mouth. If it is so, there is a possibility of Hepatitis is there. Also, if you had oral sex near anus, then also hepatitis is possible.
But the chances are very little.
Let me know if you have more questions
Wish you good luck.

Thanks doctor for your responding, which made me a littlte bit comfortable. I didn't mention about ejaculation and oral sex anus because these activities didn't happen.
So how percent to get Hepatitis in this case?
Answered by Dr. S. Murugan 6 hours later

Welcome back with follow up questions.

Very nice to hear that oral ejaculation and anal sex did not happen. The chances of getting Hepatitis of all types are also almost nil.

Be cheerful. You will not have any type of STDs, HIV or Hepatitis.
Once again good luck to you.

If you do not have any more questions, please do close the discussion and write a review.

Thank you very much Dr. S. XXXXXXX I am %100 feel happy after your responses. I only have two questions now and I promise you that they will be the last.

1/ Do you think it's enough to be tested for an HIV, which I did as I mentioned in the first question, after 5 days from my last sex relationship? Do you have any doubt about result accuracy, or I should take couples month or more to make a confirmatory test? I got the result immediately after 10 minutes from taking my blood ( I don't know what type of an HIV test is this ) but it could be the rapid test.

2/ Let's imagine that the result for an STD or Hepatitis is positive, how long do you think the medical treatment will be, specially, if one of those infections were detected in the beginning/earlier?

Thanks and I'm sorry for my multiple questions.

You are welcome to come with new questions.

1.Actually HIV test done after 5 days of a risky contact will not be sufficient even if it is antigen test. Better to be repeated after 3 weeks with an antigen test, if not 3 months after with an antibody test. If you are 100% sure that you had all your contacts with protection, you can skip these test with confidence. If you have little doubt it is better to have repeated.
2. STDs and Hepatitis are many in number. With some a single statum dose may be sufficient while with others it may need a week, 3 weeks or more according to the disease and its severity. As these possibilities are very remote,you need not worry and it is better consult your physician and he will guide you in this regard.

I hope that all your doubts cleared. All your test results will calm you with negative results.

I had an Adenopathy in October with fever (39 max) for about 5 days, I did blood

tests back then for CMV, EBV, Hepatitis A IgM & HBs, they were negative whereas

results for SGOT, SGPT, Phosphatases alcalines & GGT were respectively 78, 101,

240 & 67. They were high. The doctor asked me to redo the liver tests this month

and the levels are now even higher with no fever or any specific symptoms. The

new levels are: SGOT: 145, SGPT: 241, Phosphatases alcalines: 222 & GGT: 62. My

doctor asked me today to visit a gastroenterologist to diagnose the problem. I

have an appointment next week but i'm terribly concerned now. What can really be

the problem? Can it be hepatitis? HIV? An STD? I did my Pap test 2 month ago everything is normal.I take lots of ponstant forte during period. I've also been taking pills to lose weight (forte pharma minceur.It's worth mentioning that I had

an unprotected sexual relation more than 2 years ago and I had hepatitis B and

HIV tests twice, 5 month and one year and a half after the potential risk, but

they were all negative. Please advise!
