Sexual promiscuity is the most common cause for HIV spread world wide.
Anal sex also causes HIV. Condoms are not 100% percent protective.
If there occurred some exchange of body fluidsy, there are chances for hiv infection.
With standard tests , u can get a false negative result if test was...

Hi there.
Firstly, it is unclear whether you had the 'sores on your balls' before this drunken sexual episode or did they occur following the contact. I do understand the liquid squirting out of these sores with the 'chicken smelling liquid' occurred after the contact.
It is very possible that you...

My wife is 73 and has dementia and I am applying the estrace crème every day at the request of the GYN for vaginal atrophy and constant burning during and after urinating. Her behavior changes and she becomes more aggressive so I have lessened application to every other day. We go back to the GYN on Monday. Any suggestions as to how to proceed. The DR has tested for various STDs which turned up negative.

im 18 years old, 5'7", 156 pounds, i had unprotected sex with a woman and got staph aureus. i went to a private clinic that isnt very expensive because i dont have a medical insurance. i have no clinical record, allergies or anything, im an athlete for my college. in the clinic i got laboratories for STDS for about $500, and the results showed staph aureus. ive been taking ciprofloxacinfor more than 3 weeks, and the doctor from the clinic isnt an specialist so he doesnt really know whats going on and what to really do. the infection should be out of my body already, but today in the morning i noticed that the head of my penis is wrinkled as when u're in the pool for too long and you finger tips get wrinkled, also, it has a kind of discoloration, and well the color of it isnt the same as before, its red as if it was irritated. what does all this mean, in what stage of the infection am i in or what is going on?

Four years ago I had protected sex with a woman (I am male) and 3 days later had a terrible burning sensation on my penis and testicles. No rash or discharge, just terrible skin burning. Since then, it has come and gone, but always been slightly present. Sometimes, however, it becomes intolerable. I have been tested for all STDs several times, prostatitis and herpes four times - always with negative results. In fact, the most recent herpes blood test was done in December 2010, with negative results for both HSV1 and HSV2. I have also visited a urologist who did no tests and told me it was probably not a urology problem. A neurologist did some minor tests but found nothing. There are no marks, no lesions, no spots, no discharge, no bumps or anything other than an incredibly painful penis and testicles. Occasionally it "feels" like there are cuts or tears, but there has never actually been any. Sometimes, when I am standing it feels a little less painful. When I am sitting, the burning can also be felt in the thighs. Do you have ANY idea what this might be or what I could try to alleviate it? It has been many years and I am at my wits end. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
