Customer Question
I had a possible...

I had a possible exposure about 3.5 weeks ago. I would like to test soon, how much longer should I wait? I'm willing to test multiple times.

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

I was given antibiotics the day after my exposure because I was scared of catching a bacterial STD. I now have Prostatitis and I'm on a 10 day course of Keflex

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I had protected sex though and I don't know how this all happened Could yeast possibly penetrate or inflame the prostate?

Doctor's Assistant: Is this your first time reaching out for information about this? In general, how would you describe your overall health?

I'm pretty healthy but I now have prostatitis and my enlarged prostate pushes on my sciatic nerve

I was given Metronidazole (4 pills), Azithromycin (2 pills) and a shot of penicillin. I now have prostatitis and urtherithis.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I am now on a 10 day script of Keflex. (on day 2)
Doctor: Dr Uzair, Doctor replied 8 months ago

With protected sexual intercourse, the risk of transmission of any STD in men is very low.

You can get an STD panel 1 to 2 weeks after exposure. If you are worried about HIV, then getting tested 6 weeks after the exposure will be ideal. The prostatitis should settle with the antibiotic course.

Hope this helps.

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.

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.
