Doctor,

I had unprotected sex a few weeks ago. I received a call from my partner and she informed me that her IUD broke and went to see a physician about it. She had a full blood spectrum test and the doctor told her she should be fine at that point. She is still not feeling well and the antibiotics does not seem to be working. Should i be worried about her being pregnant or one of us having a STD? she said the pregnancy test came out positive but its too soon to tell. I do not have any symptoms of any stds other than canker sores inside of the mouth.

Thank you

Dr Brims :

Okay, has she taken a pregnancy test?

Dr Brims :

The pregnancy test was positive?

Customer:

yes that is what she claims. but for some reason she believes its too soon for that

Dr Brims :

It is not too soon

Customer:

Also i did not ejaculate inside her. we had sex only twice

Dr Brims :

ok

Customer:

so i feel she might be misleading me

Dr Brims :

That is very possible

Customer:

my question is would her IUD make her feel sick?

Dr Brims :

It can cause an infection and make her feel sick

Customer:

she went to see a doctor. Her IUD broke. So she had a full blood spectrum test and some antibiotics. Doctor said she should be fine at this point

Dr Brims :

ok

Customer:

She is still feeling sick. Now she says shes positive on her pregnancy test

Customer:

but she doesnt think its that and wants me to get a std screening

Dr Brims :

Okay, can you please clarify what you are asking so I can best answer?

Customer:

i did not ejaculate inside her and we had sex twice

Customer:

question is

Customer:

what is the posibility of her being pregnant or IUD infection or STD symptoms.

Dr Brims :

It is unlikely she is pregnant, it is possible it is an IUD infection, it is unlikely an STD

Customer:

even thought the pregnancy test came out positive?

Dr Brims :

If the test is really positive then she is likely pregnant
