Newly divorced, ex cheated a lot, partial hysterectomy & wanted full std screen Dr. Said unnecessary b/c some I couldn't get. Right? Or 2nd opinion?

Newly divorced, ex cheated a lot, partial hysterectomy & wanted full std screen Dr. Said unnecessary b/c some I couldn't get. Right? Or 2nd opinion?

Get the STD screen: In my opinion to be on the safe side you should have a full STD screen done as soon as possible at a local clinic. Also this seems like a very traumatic emotional experience and so if you would like some counselling to help you deal with this I can offer you that. If you feel this would help you please set up an appointment with me on HealthTap: www. Healthtap. Com/drharoldmandel ...Read more

If I had a hysterectomy can I spread an STD to someone?

If I had a hysterectomy can I spread an STD to someone?

STDs: There are twelve stds. Not one of them is less likely if you have had a hysterectomy. That being said, leaves me to wonder what you are really specifically asking about. Having had a hysterectomy will not change your risk of carrying or being infected with any of the twelve common stds. ...Read more

I've had a vaginal odor since my partial hysterectomy with no std diagnosis or exposure. Is there something I can take to re-balance my environment?

I've had a vaginal odor since my partial hysterectomy with no std diagnosis or exposure. Is there something I can take to re-balance my environment?

Bacterial vaginosis?: The main cause of strong vaginal odor, sometimes with discharge, is bacterial vaginosis, an overgrowth of mostly normal vaginal bacteria. Hysterectomy might trigger it. The doctor who did your hysterectomy undoubtedly has a lot of experiecne with BV. Contact her for advice on diagnosis and treatment. It is unlikely you can accurately sort this out without professional evaluation. Good luck! ...Read more

After a hysterectomy, can blood tests for std's be performed at a STD testing site that is not the physician's office? Is it common enough?

After a hysterectomy, can blood tests for std's be performed at a STD testing site that is not the physician's office? Is it common enough?

Yes.: Today full std testing can be done via blood test only, there is no longer need to obtain any genital swabs or even urine samples. The hysterectomy would make no difference in any case. You can ask your regular family physician to test you, for peace of mind, or possible exposure, and ask them to draw the blood for the test. It's that simple. ...Read more

Divewrticular dis: The two issues that cause pain in abdomen are bleeding from ovarian cyst or inflammed diverticular disease. The pain of transient bleeding is short lived.

Severe vaginal burning, ll quad pain, not uti, std, yeast, products or sex. Painful/difficult urination. Long endo history/ hysterectomy. Kidney stone?

Severe vaginal burning, ll quad pain, not uti, std, yeast, products or sex. Painful/difficult urination. Long endo history/ hysterectomy. Kidney stone?

Atrophy?: Atrophic vaginitis or desquamative vaginitis can cause the vaginal symptoms, as can other infections besides yeast, like bacteria and viruses. The treatments are all very different, so you'd need a gyn specialist to sort it out. As far as the llq pain, it may or may not be related, but it could be caused by a stone, or an ovarian cyst. But a kidney stone wouldn't cause vaginal burning. ...Read more

Can you get stds from sharing soaps?

No, but...: No is the real-life answer. That's because although there's a finite theoretical risk everywhere on Earth... we in real-life don't worry about catching sexually transmitted diseases from soap, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, etc. To be safest in public bathrooms, one can rinse off after touching soap dispensers or faucet handles, dry hands with a paper towel, grab the door handle with the towel. ...Read more

No, but...: No is the real-life answer.

Can you get ovarian cancer after a hysterectomy?

Yes: "hysterectomy " technically means removal of the uterus, not the ovaries and the uterus. A bso (bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy) means removal of both ovaries and fallopian tubes. Even if the ovaries have been removed, there is a very small chance that ovarian cancer can develop from cells that line the abdominal cavity. This chance is much less than 1 in 100. ...Read more
