Hello,

What symptoms are you having and what antibiotic are you taking?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
none but iv since learned that i have a swollen bile duct on my bladder i am taking Ciprofloxacin 250mg twice a day

THanks for replying.

Cipro won't help any of the STD's. We used to use it but there is a high resistance to it now.

Symptoms would include foul vaginal discharge, vaginal itching or pelvic pain for three of the STD's (gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichamonis) Can take 7-8 days to develop at the earliest.

ANother common one is Herpes Simplex 2. This can cause symptoms from nothing to burning, tingling, blisters and ulcerated sores. This can take 3-4 weeks to show up.

OF course, HIV testing is recommended at exposure, 3,6, and 12 months.

SO basically it would be wise to have an exam done with the above tests. This would also help to put your mind at ease as well.

Hello

I noted in you feedback that you asked a follow up question. You can continue on this thread or I won't necessarily see it. ALso don't click the accept button again as that will pay me twice.

Yes, you really should get an HIV test done. It will not be positive from this exposure but it is used as a baseline then if they are all negative at the 12 months, you can rest assured that you will not get HIV from this encounter.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
