This does not limit these activities to heterosexual intercourse, but encompasses all modalities of human-to-human sexual activity. It does not include illnesses that may make an individual more susceptible to a condition because of a sexual ...Read more

Got oral from a lady with hsv2 had protect sex She orgasm fluids around my protect penis Should I b worried of getting a std? what odd of oral Sex std

Low STD risk: Oral sex can be considered safe sex: not risk free, but much safer than unprotected vaginal or anal sex. Low risk for all STDs and virtually zero risk for others. There is no significant risk for HSV2 in this situation, even with genital fluids around penis. ("Orgasm fluid" in women is a squirt of urine, and urine doesn't transmit STDs.) No worry and no need for testing after this exposure. ...Read more

I am young and afraid to go a doctor. I have had oral sex. What STD's could I possibly have? Please help.

Oral: the main ones from oral sex (female performing on male) would be HPV, Herpes and gonorrhea. Fortunately we don't see very much genital herpes of the throat, nor gonorrhea. HPV should be enough reason to use a condom during oral sex. Your partner will still have fun if a condom used. ...Read more

15 week after oral sex unknown STD status. Right side face swollen. Dr says sinusitis. All STD test negative. Any suggestions?

STD unlikely : Sinusitis is much more likely explanation. A sexually transmitted disease should have shown up a lot sooner and would be more likely to cause a sore throat. Sinusitis is more common in smokers and can cause facial swelling ...Read more

Persistent ngu: Oral tetracyclines and erythromycin are well established choices of treatment. Despite adequate treatment, about 30-35% of NGU persist or recur. The cause of persistence or recurrence remains unknown. Prostate gland involvement has to be ruled out where indicated. A 4 to 6 week course of tetracyclines or erythromycin is suggested for persistent or recurrent NGU. See a urologist. ...Read more

CPPS?: Your second question. Oral sex doesn't cause prostatitis. Even if it started with NGU, no help w/ cipro (ciprofloxacin) is strong evidence you have no infection now. I'm betting on chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS), sometimes called non-bacterial prostatitis but perhaps not really involving the prostate. Google it, read the excellent Wikipedia entry. You'll probably see a lot in common w/ your symptoms. ...Read more

I have had unprotected oral sex, and have had 2 small red scab appear on the shaft of my penis, however I had one of these before oral sex. Is it STD?

I have had unprotected oral sex, and have had 2 small red scab appear on the shaft of my penis, however I had one of these before oral sex. Is it STD?

Genital herpes?: Oral sex is safe sex -- not completely free of risk, but with low risk for all STDs and virtually zero for some. This could be herpes, especially if the "red scabs" start out as blisters and/or open sores before scabbing over. Whatever it is, since you had an episode before the oral sex exposure, almost certainly this has nothing to do with that event. See a doctor if/when the problem reappears. ...Read more

Probably not NGU: Maybe you don't have NGU at all. If you did, doxycycline or azithromycin (and certainly both of them) would have cleared your symptoms. When NGU (with discharge almost always the main symptom, not irritation or discomfort without discharge) really occurs from oral sex, it might not be an STD in the usual sense, just the normal adjustment to a different mix of bacteria. Best to have no more Rx. ...Read more

I have a sore throat a day after performing oral sex. Can an STD cause a sore throat within one day? I'm scared to get tested.

I have a sore throat a day after performing oral sex. Can an STD cause a sore throat within one day? I'm scared to get tested.

Probably not an STD: One day is too soon for an STD or any other infection to cause symptoms, and most oral/throat STDs don't cause sore throat anyway. This is pretty common after oral sex. Maybe minor trauma if the exposure was vigorous and deep, but for the most part the cause is unknown and should clear up in a day or two. If not, see a doctor. You know it's silly to avoid testing for fear of the result! ...Read more

How common is getting syphilis through oral sex? And what other STD are passed on through oral sex? is it common to catch STD through oral sex?

Any STD can be: transmitted through oral sex, including syphilis, if the other person is infected (which they may not know). Gonorrhea, chlamydia and HPV(human papilloma virus) are more common than syphilis these days and can be transmitted this way, This is why use of condoms for oral sex, as well as anal or vaginal sex is so important. ...Read more

I am a 20 year old male. I have been having very frequent urination, but NO PAIN and had unprotected oral sex. I got an STD test but it's a long wait.

I am a 20 year old male. I have been having very frequent urination, but NO PAIN and had unprotected oral sex. I got an STD test but it's a long wait.

Not an STD: No STD causes increased urinary frequency. And oral sex is safe sex -- not completely risk free, but with much lower chance of infection than vaginal or anal sex. You can expect negative STD test results, which will be conclusive. The only likely relationship of your symptoms to the oral sex exposure is anxiety about it. No infection causes this. ...Read more

I wanted to know when you give a man oral sex do the possible STDs only affect the throat and mouth area?

Not Just Local : Several stds are infections that can get in the blood and become a total body infection. Hiv, syphilis and hepatitis can arise other than just orally after oral sex. Hpv is a little more complex, as a partner can have the virus without obvious symptoms. It is possible for the receiver of oral sex to get warts if the partner has oral hpv. ...Read more
