Protected sex: You answered your question. Protection is key. I trust you had a condom in place before and took it off afterwards. You avoided genital to genital contact which is your protection from her. Hopefully she will get an exam to evaluate her status. ...Read more

Few days past I had signs that my period is coming. Today I had protective sex and now I have my period. Was that wrong to do?

No: You are smart to have protected sex but there is no reason not to enjoy this in any part of the cycle as long as you are comfortable. There is nothing wrong here. ...Read more

Is it possible to have chlamydia & un-protective sex for 9+months, and not pass it on until now. Or did my partner get it from someone else?

Is it possible to have chlamydia & un-protective sex for 9+months, and not pass it on until now. Or did my partner get it from someone else?

Probably: You should be symptomatic if you have had chlamydia for that long, although a significant number of people may be asymptomatic. If you not had sex with anyone else, then my bet would be on your partner having sex with someone else and getting infected that way. In either case, both of you should be treated as well as the other person involved. ...Read more

I have protective sex every time but before doing it, it goes in for 10 secs or so without one. Can I still get pregnant? Condom is never broken. Safe?

I have protective sex every time but before doing it, it goes in for 10 secs or so without one. Can I still get pregnant? Condom is never broken. Safe?

Not safe: Any act of penetration, even for a second, can cause a pregnancy. And I typically advise my patients that there are no 'safe' days in a cycle. If you aren't ready to become a parent, then it's best to use 2 methods of birth control. Condoms prevent pregnancy about 70% of the time, so over the course of a year, 30 couples using condoms will become pregnant. Not great odds if you're not ready. ...Read more

Irregular periods: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections ; hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test. There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit. ...Read more

I came of my period about 2weeks ago and I'm in a lot of pain (we had protective sex) any suggestions what it could be?

I came of my period about 2weeks ago and I'm in a lot of pain (we had protective sex) any suggestions what it could be?

Reason for exam: We can find a silver lining in the pain cloud if we take it as a warning to seek Dx and Tx. That's the evolutionary function of most pain. Stop the behavior that hurts (if possible) and seek help. Your Dr can tell you the possible causes after a good exam. Guessing will do little or nothing to help. Best! ...Read more

My period is 4 days late as of today (12/24/17). My last two periods came and went. (Oct & Nov.) Is it stress? I had protective sex on 10/19/17.

My period is 4 days late as of today (12/24/17). My last two periods came and went. (Oct & Nov.) Is it stress? I had protective sex on 10/19/17.

Some thoughts...: In a woman with regular periods, some causes of a late period include: excessive weight loss or weight gain, increased exercising, emotional stress, having an illness, traveling, medicines (like birth control pills), hormonal imbalances, etc… Pregnancy is the common cause of a missed period, if sexually active. Home urine pregnancy tests are very accurate 3 weeks after sex. ...Read more

I had protective sex with my partner on 9th of Oct and took Postinor 2 the next day. My period was due yesterday but it didn't come. Am I pregnant?

Tests for that.: Cannot say in your particular case, but generally, protection lowers risk about 90%, postinor also lowers it and 1 day late is not significant. But there are tests for pregnancy. they are borderline accurate at ONE day late and get more accurate the later you are. ...Read more

Your hormones are in: .. flux for some reason, so hang on for the ride. Irregular periods and spotting could mean you may have some hormonal imbalance that could be affected by many different factors, including age (if approaching menopause?), nutrition, illness, exercise (or lack of it), body girth, psychological well-being, stress, season, or simple fluctuations of other related hormones (thyroid for example). ...Read more

If I had un protective sex and my period is a week late, nothing in my life has changed like stress or diet, and I had white discharge, am I pregnant?

If I had un protective sex and my period is a week late, nothing in my life has changed like stress or diet, and I had white discharge, am I pregnant?

Late period: If you had a unprotected sex and now having a late period there is a great probability of being pregnant but not necessarily. If you are having a vaginal discharge it could happen in pregnancy but also it could be an infection. Sometimes an infection could also affect your periods. In any case, I would start getting a pregnancy test and getting checked by your gyn provider. ...Read more

I have had un protective sex with two girls and both took STD test and came back negative but I'm itchy in genitals and there isn't pain or discharge.

Itchy genitals: They may not have been tested for pubic lice. You could have that. You could also have a fungal infection unrelated to the sex. The best thing would be for you to be evaluated by your own doctor, and to STOP HAVING UNPROTECTED SEX!!!! ...Read more

I had protective sex Jan 1 when I got off my period I have had brown discharge off & on 3 days & sore boobs, I took 2 home test both neg. Am I preg?

Maybe not, but...: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

If none of the lymph nodes enlarge in the body. No generalized lymphadenopathy, is there a chance of hiv? Maybe headache. H protective safe sex to add.

Yes: Hiv can be present without any overt signs and symptoms until the profound immune suppression creates opportunistic infections or tumors. If you think there is any chance that you may have been infected please get tested. The earlier the diagnosis is made and treatment begun, the better the outcome. ...Read more
