Had unprotected sex 3 weeks ago, he ejaculated in my vagina and mouth; I am just now starting to have a sore throat, is this an early sign of HIV? STD

Probably not: It is uncommon for HIV to induce symptoms this early. Your symptoms are more likely from a viral infection (not STD). But if symptoms persist over 2 weeks, be sure to see your doctor. ...Read more

What does it mean when I'm STD free but have a milky white discharge accompanied by lower abdomen pain back pain heartburn and headaches could this be a sign of early pregnancy?

What does it mean when I'm STD free but have a milky white discharge accompanied by lower abdomen pain back pain heartburn and headaches could this be a sign of early pregnancy?

Bacterial vaginosis?: We all have bacteria living in our vagina. Sometimes "bad" bacteria grow there, which can cause some discomfort (often not though) with milky, yellow, greenish discharge, sometimes with fishy smell. This happens more with multiple partners, douching, and smoking. Lower abdominal and back pain are more concerning for uterus or colon problems, and heartburn is unlikely related. Please see OB/GYN ...Read more

How long does it take to see the signs of an std?

How long does it take to see the signs of an std?

Depends on the STD: You could have an STD and be asymptomatic — without any signs or symptoms. In fact, this happens with a lot of STDs. Even though you have no symptoms, you're still at risk of passing the infection along to your sex partners. That's why it's important to use protection, such as a condom, during sex. And visit your doctor on a regular basis for STD screening. ...Read more

I have signs of an STD and need to be tested and treated. But i can't find anywhere to go to do it till Monday what should i do?

I have signs of an STD and need to be tested and treated.  But i can't find anywhere to go to do it till Monday  what should i do?

Sooner is better!: It varies from one STD to the next and with severity of symptoms. If only discharge, without pain, it's probably safe to wait til Monday. But even here there is risk of serious complications in the next 1-2 days. For sure don't wait if you are in pain or fever, or have open sores that suggest herpes, for which effective treatment has to start early. If necessary, find an urgent care clinic. ...Read more

I have a slit pain in my groan area. Could that be signs of an STD or i started a hard work out program last week could it be from working out?

I have a slit pain in my groan area.  Could that be signs of an STD or i started a hard work out program last week could it be from working out?

Could be either: It is more likely to be due to a hard workout. The answer lies in what the associated symptoms are. Most std's would present with associated urinary symptoms or a rash. A hard workout is more likely a hard leg or core workout. Evaluation is warranted with lab testing if you are at risk for std's such as having unprotected sex. ...Read more

Signs of an STD? And can condoms protect you from them?

Signs of an STD? And can condoms protect you from them?

Here are some ...: Using condoms still gives no 100-% protection, but that is the best that real life may come by. Remember most of STD-infected men/women have no symptoms and are just STD carriers. So, practice safe sex and maintain monogamy. Also, accept, in life, nothing is free and everything comes with a price. So, live and move with the best empathy and action you can deliver.
