Do pap tests check for stds?

Do pap tests check for stds?

Indirectly for some: Pap smears test for abnormal cervical cells— dysplasia or metaplasia—which lead to biopsies. Any std that causes such changes in the cervical cells, such as hpv, will thus be indirectly tested for. Generally, there are other tests for most stds: culture, wet prep, smear of discharge, blood tests. ...Read more

Bloods done for HIV at GUM clinic. Would this test for antigens or antibodies or both? Tested 15 months out.

Bloods done for HIV at GUM clinic. Would this test for antigens or antibodies or both? Tested 15 months out.

Doesn't matter: At 15 months, it doesn't matter. Any and all HIV tests that exist will detect HIV infection. If the results were negative, for sure you don't have HIV. That said, my understanding is that most UK GUM clinics routinely use the duo test (for antibody and antigen). But why don't you just call the clinic and ask? ...Read more

Do free condoms work for hiv/aids prevention?

Do free condoms work for hiv/aids prevention?

Yes: Condoms and other forms of barrier protection (i.e. A dental dam) prevent transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases from one person to another. They must be use properly. If they break, then they have little benefit. Never use "two condoms" on top of one another. Free condoms work well, and are often identical to condoms you buy. ...Read more

I see urine resting at opening of meatus. Tested at clinic & doctor STD free. Precaution UTI meds given. Still see same. What could be wrong?

I see urine resting at opening of meatus. Tested at clinic & doctor STD free. Precaution UTI meds given. Still see same. What could be wrong?

Probably, okay...: How long have you seen such? Have you hurt in voiding at all? Any urethral discharge? If just having dripping after voiding, called postvoid dribbling, do "urethral milking" x 2-5 times by "pressuring and swiping" urethra from the perineum (behind the sac) toward urethral opening until no more drip before sending penis into pants. That would help most & you do not have STD or UTI. More? Contact me ...Read more
