Yes: You may, or may not, have symptoms with a sexually transmitted infection (sti; used to be std). If you think you could have an sti, you must have a culture done (with an exam).

I think i might have an ulcer?

Go see your doctor: Ulcers can occur anywhere & everywhere. I suspect that you may be referring to a peptic ulcer which can cause abdominal (stomach) pain. Best to go see your family doctor for evaluation, diagnosis & treatment. In meantime, you can try over-the-counter antacids (like rolaids & tums), h2 blockers (like zantac, (ranitidine) Pepcid & axid) & even ppi (like Prilosec & protonix). ...Read more

I think I may have an STD and want to be checked, can I still get a pelvic exam while menstruating?

I think I may have an STD and want to be checked, can I still get a pelvic exam while menstruating?

Yes and no: Many women hesitate to have pelvic exams during their periods, but their docs generally don't care. The main STD tests (e.g. gonorrhea and chlamydia) and exam of sores are fine any time. However, infections that depend on tests of vaginal fluid (trichomonas, yeast, bacterial vaginosis) are best at other times. If your symptoms are severe, disregard your period and get seen ASAP. Otherwise wait. ...Read more

My throat has been dry and a bit sore for 2 weeks. Slight blood in the mornings. It started after unprotected, rough oral sex. I'm worried I might have caught an std/throat cancer? It's dry/bit sore.

My throat has been dry and a bit sore for 2 weeks. Slight blood in the mornings. It started after unprotected, rough oral sex. I'm worried I might have caught an std/throat cancer? It's dry/bit sore.

Get tested: If you have had unprotected oral sex, then there is a real possibility of a STD. You should definitely be tested. Don't worry about throat cancer which is extremely unlikely in a woman your age. It is most likely related to the sex, but even very rough oral sex should not cause soreness that lasts for 2 weeks. Get checked, get treatment if needed, feel safe, protect yourself in the future. ...Read more

I never had any STD . What caused me to have an ectopic possibly?

Ectopic pregnancy: While scarring in your fallopian tubes from sexually transmitted diseases is a common cause of ectopic pregnancy, about half of all cases occur by random chance alone. Only 1 out of millions of sperm makes it to an egg. Of all the eggs that get fertilizes round the world in a day, some go the wrong way and miss the tube or don't get all the way in. Nature isn't perfect. Random events are natural. ...Read more

Could I have a std?

Maybe. Maybe not.: A woman who's been having "s" with another person, might have allowed the other person to "t" some sort of "d" to her. So, a woman who has had sex (even once) with another person, indeed could have a sexually transmitted disease... But only if the other person had an std at the time of sex. ...Read more

What do you suggest if I may have an STI or sore throat?

What do you suggest if I may have an STI or sore throat?

Probably no STI: Sore throat is rarely due to STI; it's more likely you just have a cold virus. Gonorrhea is the most common STI that can do this, but most oral gonorrhea causes no symptoms at all. A first oral herpes infection can cause severe sore throat, but usually there are other symptoms as well, i.e. blisters/sores of lips, inside the mouth, etc. In any case, see a doctor if you remain concerned. ...Read more
