Hey! About 11 weeks ago I had unprotected sex with a friend of mine. I found out 5-6 weeks after the sex that she tested positive for syphillis. I got myself tested immediately at I tested negative. If I test myself now after 11 weeks and it still is negative, then I gotta be safe, right? Read somewhere that you should always wait 12 weeks, but one week shouldn't matter THAT much right?

I had a tiny ulcer pop up on the underside near the base of my penis after anal sex with my girlfriend. I admit i hadnt taken a shower afterwards for over 2 days as i can be quite lazy sometimes and thats when it showed up. I've been tested using the swab and it came back negative. Also 9 weeks after the sore popped up I got a herpes 1/2 igg blood test and that came back negative . Are these results conclusive? Could it be something else?.

I'm in a long distance relationship and have recently been diagnosed with trichomoniasis. My partner has been notified and we are both being treated but the problem is we are supposed to see each other Valentine's Day weekend. Would it be safe for us to have sex as long as we use condoms?

I have lichen sclerosus (not sure if it's related) and had

Hi,I have lichen sclerosus (not sure if it's related) and had pain with intercourse about a month ago. I went to the doc right away. They examined me and found two ulcers. They cultured them and did a blood test for syphilis. Both herpes culture and syphils were negative. The doctor did find yeast and fungus in the culture. He gave me antibiotics and send me home. I am still having pain with inter course a month later and can still see the ulcers. Though they are healing, they are still there. I went to the local planned parenthood because one seemed to develop some sort of blood blister on the edge of it. It's painless but the ulcers are painful. The dr examined me and said she didn't think it was std related. I now don't know what to do and just want them to heal.

I'm 52 yrs old. Haven't had sex years. I had

I'm 52 yrs old. Haven't had sex for 4 years. I had unprotected sex dec 18 and dec 22. Around dec 24th. I decided to shave my perineum. And I'm a very fair red head with sensitive skin. I didn't start to feel itching until 3-4 days after shaving. Then burning started. No discharge at all. And no open sores . I started. To panic about std. I took Z pack for 5 days. Then cipro because it burned a little when I urinated. Both did nothing! I used vaginsil, which was irritating. And aquaphor ointment. Which seemed to help. My Gyn called in Diflucan on Monday the 4th. That did nothing. I'm seeing him on Tuesday. I started Valtrex on the 7th. Seems like a little better, but not sure if this is from shaving or ??
