See below: The most obvious would be apthous ulcers, which can be caused by stress. Have your dentist do a clinical examination and if this is the case, laser therapy may be able to lessen the duration. If you feel this is not the case, contact your MD for a complete workup. ...Read more

Orgasm : Orgasm both helps relieve the pain of menstrual cramps, but can also induce cramping (which lasts a short time). Clitoral stimulation may be inducing cramps in you if it is close to your period, but usually the effect is to make the cramps less painful. I would recommend taking Ibuprofen 600 mg about an hour before you plan to be intimate to help lessen cramping, unless you have been told by a doctor not to take Ibuprofen (issues with easy bleeding/bruising, gastric ulcer).

Hi. I had unprotected sex with a guy. I went 30 days after exposure and got a blood test for hiv and syphilis they came back - Should I trust this ?

Hi. I had unprotected sex with a guy. I went 30 days after exposure and got a blood test for hiv and syphilis they came back - Should I trust this ?

Retest at 3&6 months: For HIV, it can take up to 6 months after exposure to develop the antibodies that are detected by the test. So retesting is recommended usually at 3 and 6 months post-exposure. For syphilis, antibodies can take several weeks to be produced, so again, if you are concerned, another retest in the future may be indicated. Testing for other STDs such as chlamydia and gonorrhea is recommended also. ...Read more

How long after exposure should I get tested for syphilis? I am so angry and humiliated.

About 2-5 weeks.: Treponemal antibody tests, like fta-abs and mha-tp usually become positive two to five weeks after the initial infection. These tests stay positive, even after therapy. The vdrl and RPR probably become positive before then. The fastest test would likely be the darkfield exam, but that needs a sample from the chancre, or fist lesion, and needs to be done 10 minutes after getting the sample. ...Read more

I have all the symptoms of syphilis but the test results came back negative. What could I have?

Needs evaluation: The basic test for syphilis is calked an rpr. It is very sensitive meaning a false positive is rare. If you know you have been exposed then get retested. The symptoms of syphilis vary widely and can often be confused for other disease. Because of this syphilis is known as the "great imitator." see your doctor to evaluate what other tests for other diagnosis should be considered. ...Read more

I went to get tested at planned parenthood i asked her about syphilis she said that i would have symptoms should I believe this and that i don't haveit?

Syphilis: Nope. She is wrong. I don't mean to guess, but if your exposure is with men then you definitely need a test and maybe even testing every three to six months would be wise. If your sexual partner is female then testing once is fine and then only repeating the test is you change partners or have other possible exposure. The problem is that if your infection is in your mouth or anus no symptoms. ...Read more
