After catching stds i know it takes years but how many years does it take long term illness such as pelvic diease to show syntoms?

Usually a few weeks: Some cases of PID never cause symptoms. A woman can have infertility or tubal pregnancy from past PID and not know until tests show blocked or scarred tubes. When PID does cause symptoms, which it usually does (pelvic pain, often with fever), they usually start within a few weeks of catching gonorrhea or chlamydia. But once in a while, PID symptoms may not show up for a few months. ...Read more

Can an STD leave a long-term scar on lips? I kissed a woman w/ one on her btm lip. She seems to have the scar in her old photos. It bled upon kissing.

Can an STD leave a long-term scar on lips? I kissed a woman w/ one on her btm lip. She seems to have the scar in her old photos. It bled upon kissing.

Not an STD: On one hand, a scar alone will not bleed. So it would seem your kissing partner had something else as well. No way to tell whether it was an injury or some sort of sore. However, no STD is a likely cause either of a scar or new sore. Oral herpes comes closest, but isn't considered an STD. Even if some STD caused the scar, by definition a scar is healed and connot transmit infection. ...Read more

Can chalmdyia cause any long term issues to a male penis once it is treated?chronic inflammation such as mild string after peeing.two negtive STD test

No: If appropriately treated no long term issues. Not sure what you mean by mild "string" after peeing. Mild sting? Suggests some form of irritation to the urethra (tube pee travels through inside penis) or meatus irritation (opening at tip of penis). Are you washing vigorously with soap down there? That can cause irritation. If still symptoms after treatment need urology eval. Best of luck. Dr. R ...Read more
