Std (Definition)

This is a disease which can be transmitted from one person to another person through sexually related activities. This does not limit these activities to heterosexual intercourse, but encompasses all modalities of human-to-human sexual activity. It does not include illnesses that may make an individual more susceptible to a condition because of a sexual ...Read more

It: It is possible that one of you were carrying the virus for an extended period of time. It does not necessarily mean anyone is cheating. I am so sorry that this is happening for you but there is safe effective treatment. Please have your boyfriend go get checked also. And if your depression is continuing then please also arrange counseling for that. I wish you the best. ...Read more

Can I have an STD for years without any symptoms?

Can I have an STD for years without any symptoms?

Latent Syphilis: I agree with the prior answer. Syphilis also should be mentioned. Syphilis has a primary stage with genital skin ulceration, then follows a secondary stage with more widespread skin rashes. But the following latent or tertiary stage is downright scary. It may last for years with gradual damage to may body systems, potientially causing severe neurologic damage, even death. Get tested. ...Read more

If you had any type of STD and symptoms then got tested 2 years after if you really had the diseasewill it still be positive?

If you had any type of STD and symptoms then got tested 2 years after if you really had the diseasewill it still be positive?

It depends: An std acquired and treated 2 years ago may cause a positive test result. Tests for syphilis usually remain positive after treatment. Antibody tests for herpes will also remain positive. If a test for chlamydia or gonorrhea is positive it is likely that either the std was not completely treated originally or re-infection occurred. Either way, treatment is needed. ...Read more

Are there STDs that would be late-onset and not show symptoms for 4 or more years?

Are there STDs that would be late-onset and not show symptoms for 4 or more years?

Yes: HPV is one of the more common STD's and the non-wart producing strains can arrive and stay in the recipient for years with no noticeable symptoms. In the pre-vaccine era as many as 70% of women in their 20's showed blood evidence of prior infection. Some strains are related to cervical cancer. ...Read more

After catching stds I know it takes years but how many years does it take long term illness such as pelvic diease to show syntoms?

After catching stds I know it takes years but how many years does it take long term illness such as pelvic diease to show syntoms?

Usually a few weeks: Some cases of PID never cause symptoms. A woman can have infertility or tubal pregnancy from past PID and not know until tests show blocked or scarred tubes. When PID does cause symptoms, which it usually does (pelvic pain, often with fever), they usually start within a few weeks of catching gonorrhea or chlamydia. But once in a while, PID symptoms may not show up for a few months. ...Read more

I was tested 4 years ago for all STDs and was clear except for bv. So was treated. Symptoms have never gone, could they have missed something??

No: You have to change few things with that Dx. Cleanliness, avoiding tampoon, /doching/Sauna, tub bath, sex toys and multiple sex partners. Avoid all sex during treatment. May need retreatment after testing. ...Read more

Can hpv cause fatigue and flue like symptoms? I have been diagnosed 2 years ago. I'm negative to all other stds and all bloodworks are normal.

Not HPV: HPV doesn't cause fatigue or any other systemic symptoms. Also, with 2 years having passed, it is likely your HPV infection has been cleared by your immune system and is now gone. However, if you (still?) have genital warts, see a doctor for treatment. ...Read more

Is it possible that I have rectal gonorrhea for 3 years without any symptoms? I regularly get urine std tested but never a rectal swab for the test.

Rectal gonorrhea: Gonorrhea at any location will generally produce unpleasant odor and/or discharge. It is "possible", but unlikely that "rectal gonorrhea" can exist for "three years", but almost always with symptoms. A rectal culture should prove one way or the other. ...Read more

Hiv may not give symptoms for years and may take 6-12 months to become positive on a test. In terms of how long does it take to catch and std? One act of unprotected se is enough. ...Read more

Warming sensation in penis which comes and goes for two years. Had 5 urine analysis/STD tests & cystoscopy all Negative. What else could this be?

Warming sensation in penis which comes and goes for two years. Had 5 urine analysis/STD tests & cystoscopy all Negative. What else could this be?

Nothing serious: No STD or other infection is a likely cause of such symptoms. It's good you were tested to be safe, but I would have stopped after the first negative results. The cystoscopy means nothing wrong with your bladder. Even if the symptoms continue and are unexplained, for sure you have nothing harmful. Some people just have to live with symptoms of unknown cause but do so easily once known not serious. ...Read more

I am a male 26 years of age I recently did blood work came back clean no std nothing however two bumps came up between the shaft and head of my penis?

Need more specifics: Without a detailed history of the specifics & relevance of the bumps + a direct look & palpation, it is hard to tell what these 2 bumps may be. At this point for a 26-yr man, the odd to have malignancy should be next to zero. Clinically, it could be sebaceous cysts or indurated sclerotic vein or Peyronie's disease.

What is painful bumps on your vagina filled with puss followed by blood once you pop them? What is this symptom called? I know its not a STD because I've been tested several times over the past 5 years of having this. I have been celibate for the past 10

What is painful bumps on your vagina filled with puss followed by blood once you pop them? What is this symptom called? I know its not a STD because I've been tested several times over the past 5 years of having this. I have been celibate for the past 10

You: You may be having a recurrent infection with boils. Boils usually start out as tender, red areas which become hard and then eventually develop a "head" of white pus. Once this drains, the area usually heals on its own. Most of these are caused by staphylococcus aureas, a common bacteria found on the skin. Occasionally, however, the can be caused by mrsa, the antibiotic resistent kind of staph bacteria.

Next time you develop one of these infections, start out by applying warm compresses to the area to help draw the infection out. Then, you should see your doctor so that they can drain it, test for what bacteria is causing it and be able to treat you appropriately - sometimes with antibiotics, sometimes just with drainage. If you ever develop fever, chills, or feel ill with this infection, call your doctor immediately. Don't be embarrassed about seeing your doctor - we see this kind of thing all the time and we're here to help, not judge.

You can try and prevent these infections by practicing good hygiene and using anti-bacterial soaps. Your doctor may have other suggestions for prevention. Good luck! ...Read more

Is it possible to have chlamydia for years without symptoms? Also, how long before it can cause infertility? A pap smear won't detect the std, right?

Pap smears: A pap smear very easily can detect chlamydia if the physician ordering the test asks for it. But, yes, untreated chlamydia is with you till it is treated. In females this is quite dangerous because pid and infertility can develop quickly. ...Read more

Curvature of penis for many years. Sometimes two streams when urinating. Oftentimes burning after ejaculation (no STD's). Can curvature cause this?

See Your Doctor: Your description suggests a condition called Hypospadias where the urethral opening is abnormally located on underside of penis; the abnormal anatomy may also cause 2 streams. Additionally Hypospadias can be associated w/ another condition called Chordee: an abnormal downward curvature of penis. Burning could be due to exposed urethra. Can be corrected surgically by a Urology Specialist. ...Read more
