Please Could you list all STDs to get tested after 7 years of sexual exposure? I want to ensure about STDs because I'm going to get marry

Only a few...: Have a urine test for gonorrhea and chlamydia and blood tests for HIV and syphilis. You could consider a blood test for herpes, but if so, have only an IgG test for HSV2, not an IgM test, which often is misleading. Nothing else is necessary. Best wishes for a romantic, rewarding, and successful marriage! ...Read more

Never heard of the STD lgv - how rare/ common is it? Not usually one that is screened for.

Never heard of the STD lgv - how rare/ common is it? Not usually one that is screened for.

Chlamydia: Lgv is a type of chlamydia. It isn't common, but is being seen in some groups, especially gay men, in whom it can cause severe proctitis (anorectal infection). Chlamydia tests will pick up lgv, but you need specialized tests to tell you whether it's lgv or not. The difference is that you treat lgv with a 21-day course of doxycycline, which is what I would use in a gay man with proctitis. ...Read more

I have white bumps that go away and reoccur on the inside of my cheeks. Any help? Is it an std? Can you get an STD in there besides HSV 1? Is it rare?

I have white bumps that go away and reoccur on the inside of my cheeks. Any help? Is it an std? Can you get an STD in there besides HSV 1? Is it rare?

Probably not an STD: It does not sound like you have an std from the way you describe the condition. You may want to have dentist or oral surgeon look at the area in question. These spots could be a normal variant of sebaceous glands that are in skin but are called koplicks spots. The only way to know would be to have a dental professional check it out. ...Read more

I had a cold prior protected sex & afterwards, cough since. Is a month-long dry cough with rare productive clear, white mucus symptomatic of STD/HIV?

I had a cold prior protected sex & afterwards, cough since. Is a month-long dry cough with rare productive clear, white mucus symptomatic of STD/HIV?

Not HIV or other STD: No STD causes cough, nasal congestion, or other cold symptoms. Neither does HIV. Acute HIV symptoms, when they occur, are sore throat, headache, muscle aches, inflamed lymph nodes, and rash -- but not cough, runny nose, sinus symptoms, etc. Almost certainly you just have a cold or allergy, not related to any sexual exposure (unless your partner also had a cold). No worries, no need for testing! ...Read more
