STD symptoms: Exposure to infectious agents with sexual activity is usually apparent with most STD's within a week or so. Chlamydia and gonorrhea can be detected sooner by vaginal culture.

Some stds cause symptoms such as penile discharge or burning on urination but others - such as HIV - may not cause symptoms for a long time. ...Read more

Irritating blister like sore on penis. Only had unprotected oral sex a year ago, no std symptoms. Could this be from frequent masturbation?

Irritating blister like sore on penis. Only had unprotected oral sex a year ago, no std symptoms. Could this be from frequent masturbation?

Herpes?: Genital herpes is the most common cuase of a "blister like sore on penis". Maybe infected a year ago and now having a recurrent outbreak? However, there could be other causes -- impossible to tell without more detail on appearance of the lesion, time course, other symptoms, etc. Masturbation alone is an unlikely cause. See a doctor for professional diagnosis. Good luck and happy new year. ...Read more

Can I have an STD for years without any symptoms?

Latent Syphilis: I agree with the prior answer. Syphilis also should be mentioned. Syphilis has a primary stage with genital skin ulceration, then follows a secondary stage with more widespread skin rashes. But the following latent or tertiary stage is downright scary. It may last for years with gradual damage to may body systems, potientially causing severe neurologic damage, even death. Get tested. ...Read more

If you had any type of STD and symptoms then got tested 2 years after if you really had the diseasewill it still be positive?

If you had any type of STD and symptoms then got tested 2 years after if you really had the diseasewill it still be positive?

It depends: An std acquired and treated 2 years ago may cause a positive test result. Tests for syphilis usually remain positive after treatment. Antibody tests for herpes will also remain positive. If a test for chlamydia or gonorrhea is positive it is likely that either the std was not completely treated originally or re-infection occurred. Either way, treatment is needed. ...Read more

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?

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

I only had sex with one person just one time and it was five years ago. For religious reasons I hadn't had sex since then. Should I get tested for std?

I only had sex with one person just one time and it was five years ago. For religious reasons I hadn't had sex since then. Should I get tested for std?

Probably not: Especially if you have no symptoms of a STD, there is almost no reason to be concerned or tested. But some people only call intercourse 'sex' and think of other physical acts between people like oral, anal or even hand contact as safe. They are not totally safe, so it might be a good idea if you've done those things recently. Probably, you are fine! ...Read more
