Everytime my bf and I have sex I have a weird smell after. I never had this with anyone else can this mean he has an infection or me? Or can be normal

Bacterial vaginosis?: Strong vaginal odor after sex usually is from bacterial vaginosis, which is an overgrowth of mostly normal vaginal bacteria. It might just be a coincidence you're noticing it with your current boyfriend; BV is associated with sex, but not necessarily an STD. However, other STDs (gonorrhea, chlamydia, etc) are more common in women with BV. See a doctor for STD testing and probable BV treatment ...Read more

I have an important question if I don't have itch or burn but the doctor still gave the "fluconazole" just cus I have mild discharge can I still have sex?

No sex for a while: Your doctor apparently suspected a yeast infection, the only thing treatable with fluconazole. However, yeast usually causes itching, irritaiton, etc and not discharge. Best to avoid sex until you know the cause of the discharge. If at risk for STDs, gonorrhea, chlamydia, or trichomonas might be possible. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

I have had diarrhea for 8 months which has caused me to feel like I have an anal fissure. How would I know for sure if I have an anal fissure?

Anal Fissure: The only way you can know if you have an anal fissure is to be examined by a doctor. Pain, bleeding, and rectal irritation can all be signs of various rectal problems. An anal fissure can lead to a peri-rectal abcess, so it is important to find out if that is your problem and if so, have it treated. ...Read more

DEPENDS: You might have an infection, usually bacterial which has a fishy or foul smelling odor. This odor can intensify after the introduction of sperm in the vagina after intercouse. The other possibility is that this is just related to intercourse especially if it resolves after a short period of time. As always, if unsure get it evaluated by uor doctor. ...Read more

If I have an infection why don't i know about it and how can I get an infection if i'm not having sex?

Genital infection?: Presumably this concerns a genital infection, many of which aren't STDs and not caused by sex. For example, most women get vaginal yeast infections from time to time. Bacterial vaginosis (an overgrowth of mostly normal bacteria) can be triggered by sex, but not always, and is not considered an STD. Plenty of other possibilities as well. See MD if you think you have a genital infection. ...Read more

Could I still have an immunisation if I have a cold?

Could I still have an immunisation if I have a cold?

In general,: a person would normally not get immunizations if there is a fever. If you have a viral infection - in general it is best to wait for an immunization until you are feeling better. Regarding having a cold - if you need the vaccine asap - it is variable depending what the immunization is. I would call the immunization clinic regarding the specific shot you are to receive. ...Read more
