Hello I am a 30 year old male and recieved unprotected oral sex for 10 minutes and gave unprotected vaginal for 2 minutes on July 24 and tested negative on September 12 (50 days) for gohnorea, chlamydia, herpes 1&2, syphilis, hiv, hepatitis a,b,c. I also got tested on August 16 for trichmonasas which also came back negative. One of my concerns is that some of these test may not be conclusive until 12 weeks. How soon can these stds be detected. Before these test I convinced myself that i had symptoms of each one and they felt real but I hadn't had any discharge, bumps, or ulcers since the possible exposure. The female is around 45 unknown married with children. Now I am starting to do the same thing after more online research because of the possibility of inconclusive test. I feel like I could have lymphnode pain in the groin but I really don't feel any swelling. I am healthy, active, take vitamins everyday so I feel my immune system is at the top of its game.

Thanks for writing in.

Hello doctor
The other day after mastirbating I discovered a white discharge on in the tip of my penis. Not realizing that there was an itchy and tingle feeling also. Everyday now I can feel it leaking out and caked up an sticking to my underware. I had sex a week and a day before without a condom with the same person I've been having sex with for the last month. I worried that it's could be an STD. I need to know what this can be and if it's an STD. Please help...

doctor1 MD

Hi,

Thanks for your query.

It is possible that you have uretheritis secondary infection. White discharge from the urethra, itching and tingling is associated with 'gonococcal' and other 'bacterial infections' (STD).

I suggest you to consult a doctor / urologist. Physical examination, urine...

Had light yellow fluid leaking from my ball sack. It itches constantly and has developed what looks like dried skin flaking off. My penis is swollen and excretes some of what appears to be the same fluid with red whelts. Also itches constantly. No chance of STD's.

doctor1 MD

Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The light yellowish fluid from the scrotum with itching and flakes are most likely suggestive of a fungal infection. The other causes can be gonococcal or chlamydia infection. All these have to be ruled out, hence get yourself examined by a Urologist or...

Itchy urethra relived by squeezing penis, home uti test showed positive leukocytes. Paid for micro and macro urine test. Showed leukocyte estarace trace and WBC 10-20 bacteria moderate hyaline cast 0-1 Urine culture was "no growth" Now today I believe I notice a stronger oder of the urine. I have had unprotected sex with three women I didn't really know. Had "the conversation" with the first prior to sex (3months ago) other two women were about 5 weeks and 7 weeks ago respectively. I didn't first notice the symptoms until about 3 weeks after the last encounter. I have contacted both of these women's and they both claim to be clean and recently tested. In the 3 weeks between the last woman and noticing symptoms I did start seeing and sleeping with my ex girlfriend. She has made no complaints of symptoms when I mentioned mine. I assumed I had a uti and treated with cranberry pills but it is not resolving. It's my understand that symptoms of chlamydia or gonorrhea will show up sooner than 3 weeks after contact. So I'm left with wondering if I have a uti, prostate infection (I'm 35) or if I picked something up std wise from my girlfriend... Also side note.. Couple of months ago I got a fungal infection on feet I assume from the shower at the gym it's getting better but I think I've spread it to my hands. Also Gettin better there with some OTC fungal. Cream and time. Is it possible I gave myself a fungal uti? I have no insurance for the first time in my adult life and first time ever with any of these issues

doctor1 MD

Hi,

Thanks for your query.

At first I would like to rule out the fungal infection being a cause here, as in fungal infection we see more RBCs(Red blood cells) than leukocytes.

The symptom you have described as relived by squeezing penis clearly indicates the infection has involved the urethra or...

Im 65 5'11 152lbs. I'm happily married in a totally monogamous
marriage for 30 years but I have developed an obsessive compulsive disorder over STDS. In this incident over falling backward onto
a public toilet exposing an area of the skin about 1 1/2 inches inside the crack in my buttocks at the top near my tailbone.
The seat felt damp. 1st I know that the skin was intact. No cuts cracks etc. 2nd Is this skin considered mucous membrane. I was told it is not. And finally to be specific could I have been at risk
for gonorrhea or chlamydia penetrating this skin under the conditions I mentioned. This is a second opinion doctor. I was assured by another doctor that I was at no risk.
My OCD rears its ugly head and I need reasurance if I can get it.

doctor1 MD

Hi,

I completely understand your mental state.

I reassure you as your doctor that there are nil chances of transmitting STD's (Gonorrhea) by using public toilet. Sexually transmitted Infections as the name explains are common amongst people with high risk sexual behavior and only transmitted...

Hi - I'm currently being treated for oral and genital thrush that is believed to be caused by 4 rounds of antibiotics I was recently on, most of which were Bactrim. I have been using Nystatin cream on my penis for the genital yeast infection and Nystatin oral suspension for my mouth, as well as 10 days of Diflucan that I finished last night. I have also had to take an antibiotic at the same time as all of this (Cipro) to clear up my original problem that forced me to take the antibiotics in the first place (prostatitis).

My problem is that after 2 weeks since first being diagnosed with oral thrush, I still have it. But, of course, I have been taking Cipro this whole time and I have one last dose of that before finishing it. Could that be causing the thrush to linger? I'm all out of Diflucan and have only a little Nystatin left. What would your advice be based on the photos?

Additional notes: my doctor HIV tested me and it was negative. I am not sexually active.

doctor1 MD

Hi,

Welcome to HCM,

Yes, thrush infection can linger due to concurrent administration of antibiotic.

You should continue treatment of thrush at least for a week after stopping Cipro.

You should take Pre & probiotic capsule also for a couple of days.

If you are not sexually active, there is no...

doctor1 MD

Hello and welcome to HCM,
The interpretation of high vaginal smear is as follows:
The smear shows presence of gram positive cocci in vaginal smears.
However, culture does not show growth of any pathogenic bacteria.
This implies that there is no evidence of pathogenic bacteria in the vaginal...
