Don't assume any diagnosis based only on symptoms; get professional care. ...Read more

Pregnancy is the common cause of a missed period, if sexually active. ...Read more
Depends: This depends on which sti you are talking about. Gonorrhea and chlamydia come on quickly as does herpes. But not all herpes infections cause noticeable symptoms.

Best to consult with a doctor with experience in stis for proper testing. ...Read more

Penile edema?: This might be the result of minor trauma during sex. If painless and clears up within a day, probably nothing to worry about.

How long after unprotected sex should I get STD testing? I used a condom, but it broke so I just want to make sure I'm safe.
2-3 weeks and 3 mos.: There are many possible sexually transmitted infections, including syphilis, hiv, hepatitis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, herpes, trichomonas, and human papilloma virus (hpv).

Unlikely: If you are both telling the truth, then you should not have concern about sexually transmitted diseases.

My boyfriend is the only person I had unprotected sex with and my STD test came up positive and his came up negative. I got the treatment already.
STDs often are found: ...in only one person in a couple. They're not always transmitted. The tests aren't perfect, can give false results. Most STDs go away even without treatment, so bf's infection might have cleared before he was tested. Or he was treated but didn't tell you. Syphilis is only transmitted when early; maybe you're beyond that stage. If gonorrhea, chlamydia or syphilis, bf still needs treatment. ...Read more

Hi, I’m scared that I could possibly have an STD but the only “unprotected sex” i’ve had was from rape. A year ago & 2 years ago. Could I have one?
??? protected???: Condoms don't stop all STD's so if you are sexually active, you may have picked up one or more. Regular pap smears and STD's screens are a valuable resource to any sexually active woman. Some STI'S can have no symptoms but still make you sterile if untreated. ...Read more

I had unprotected sex with a virgin girl who had unprotected oral sex with 3 guys before and I'm worried. What STD tests to do and when? Is it needed?
Probably not needed: STDs are uncommonly transmitted by fellatio (mouth to penis), and mostly cause obvious symptoms. If in the next 2-3 weeks you don't have abnormal discharge from the penis, or penile blisters or sores, testing probably isn't necessary. Of course you can always get tested for STDs if you remain nervous and would like the reassurance of negative tests. ...Read more

I hv got an std/hiv test on the 12th aug & I hv had unprotected sex in june, 14th july, 23rd july wld this test cover those date or I have take another?
HIV: The recommended procedure is to test for antibody at 2-4 weeks, three and six months. If you want earlier info you can either get a p24 antigen (fairly accurate) or an RNA pcr, the latter being expensive. Hopefully you are being tested simultaneously for other stds, and learning not to have unprotected sex. ...Read more

A vaginal swab test for gonorrhea and chlamydia is accurate any time more than 4-5 days after exposure; that test can be done in the next few days. Syphilis and HIV blood tests need to wait until 6 weeks after exposure (unless whoever you see for gon/chl testing suggests earlier because esp high risk.) ...Read more
