What happens if you give head to someone with an STD like gonorrhea?

Infection: You will likely contract an oral std (...Or more than one, gonorrhea & chlamydia are often found together...And increased likelihood for hiv, etc.). About 1/2 get sore throat and/or flu-like symptoms. If worried about this possibility, need to admit it to dr, as routine throat culture often won't "grow" these, and antibiotic selection needs to cover them as well.

It happens in response to trauma, viral or bacterial infection, or irritation (some spices). Either way, you should seek a consult to be sure. Until then, treat it as an std and be responsible to your sexual partners. ...Read more

I got checked by an OB for STD and such, she says I'm safe but my partner was diagnosed with Gonorrhea and later on Molluscum? Now I'm afraid!

Treatment needed: Having a partner with gonorrhea, you need treatment for it, and for chlamydia, even if your own gonorrhea and chlamydia tests were negative. You MUST be treated to prevent complications and possibly reinfecting your partner. For molluscum, just keep your eyes out for typical lesions like your partner's; it's harmless, just inconvenient. Check back with your doctor. Good luck! ...Read more

How quickly to you get symptoms from an std? Gonorrhea specifically?

Within 3-14 days: Gonorrhea's incubation period (meaning the time it takes from exposure to signs of clinical infection) can be within about 1-2 weeks. If you know you've been exposed or you know your partner has been recently exposed and there has been intimate sexual relations between you even in the form of kissing only you may be infected.

What is the liklihood of getting gonorrhea or another std from a single time receiving of cunnilngus?

What is the liklihood of getting gonorrhea or another std from a single time receiving of cunnilngus?

No significant risk: STDs are difficult to transmit by cunnilingus; even the busiest STD clinics almost never see infected women in whom this has been the only possible exposure. The main exception is that if the oral partner has oral herpes (cold sores, fever blisters), genital herpes could result. But no measurable risk for gonorrhea or chlamydia. ...Read more

Recently diagnosed with gonorrhea this month and me and my partner got treated she was clean. How long can the STD be in my body before I realise?

It depends: Gonorrhea in chronic form, that is without overt symptoms, can exist in females for a significant period of time. Chlamydia is best known for this action, but Gonorrhea can also do the same. Make sure that you get re-tested after completing the appropriate antibiotic treatment to be certain that the treatment was effective BEFORE you begin again any at risk sexual behavior. ...Read more

I've had one abortion and four miscarriages one due to a STD called gonorrhea which caused the first miscarriage is that why I keep miscarring now

No. See a specialist: The gonorrhea should have been treated after your 1st miscarriage. After 2 or more miscarriages we do tests to find out why. Possible causes include autoimmune conditions like antiphospholipid antibodies, blood clotting disorders, low egg supply, problems in the uterus like fibroids or a uterine septum, hormonal problems, or male or female genetic problems. Get checked out by a rei specialist. ...Read more

Can infertility caused by gonorrhea or chlamydia be treated or is it permanent? I don't have an std, just asking.

Can infertility caused by gonorrhea or chlamydia be treated or is it permanent? I don't have an std, just asking.

Possibly: Chlamydia or gonorrhea can infect the delicate linings of the fallopian tubes and lead to blockage or scarring. A tubal pregnancy or infertility might result. Untreated disease is more likely to cause such a problem but even brief infections with this germ can do it. Some seem to avoid the complication in spite of the infection. If damaged, the tubes could be bypassed during ivf to get pregnant. ...Read more

Penile discharge with 2 days ago negative std results. I'm a bit confused because it smells and looks like gonorrhea. What can this be? Retest?

Penile discharge with 2 days ago negative std results. I'm a bit confused because it smells and looks like gonorrhea. What can this be? Retest?

Probably NGU: Probably tests for gonorrhea and chlamydia, which are very reliable. That means you have nongonococcal urethritis (NGU). About a third of NGU is due to chlamydia, the rest to other (often unknown) causes. It's still an STD that needs treatment. So do your sex partners. Odor means nothing. Gonorrhea has no special odor. Maybe that was overgrowth of other bacteria under the foreskin. Good luck! ...Read more

Can I get chlamydia or gonorrhea by sharing towels, soaps, or toilet seat? Worried since I live and share bathroom with someone who had those stds.

No: Gonorrhea and chlamydia are transmitted via vaginal, anal, or oral sexual contact and cannot survive outside the body, so you cannot pick them up from shared towels, toilet seats or soap. However, other types of std like trichomonas, crab lice, and scabies mite can potentially be transmitted via shared towels. ...Read more

I am experiencing slight urethral tingling after being treated for gonorrhea/chlamydia 2 weeks ago. Std tests were negative, no other symptoms since.

Here are some...: The pace of symptomatic improvement under effective treatment may widely vary among the people. It is okay as long as getting better slowly but surely day by day. If no more symptoms, that is good. But, make sure that the partner is treated and tested simultaneously and keeping on a one-to-one relationship + counseling for safer sex are advisable.

Can a STD such as gonorrhea or chlamydia cause a dry orgasm or blockage?

Can a STD such as gonorrhea or chlamydia cause a dry orgasm or blockage?

No: Is your anejaculation lifelong or recent event? If recently, it is usually caused by drugs, e.g., alpha-blockers, diseases, e.g., diabetes, surgery, e.g., TURP/PVP. Clinically, STD would very unlikely cause complete obstruction in ejaculatory ducts of both sides. So, I gave "no" to your question. Of course, see experts for detailing timely. ...Read more

What is the likelihood that std's like gonorrhea could be transferred from saliva alone with deep kissing? How would oral infection be treated?

No risk, no worries: Gonorrhea and other STDs are not transmitted by saliva or by kissing, even prolonged or "deep" kissing. Oral STDs are caught only by performing oral sex on an infected partner. (Oral herpes due to HSV1 can be transmitted by kissing, but isn't considered an STD.) Oral gonorrhea and other STDs are treated with the same antibiotics as genital infections. ...Read more

Dr. Dan fisher said except hepatitis b & c all std's are curable. Is it true? I've heard syphillis, gonorrhea, HIV can't be cured. They are only treatable.

Most, not yet HIV: Syphilis is curable with antibiotics if diagnosed early, i.e. Primary or 2ndary. Tertiary syphilis with neurologic deficits can never be cured, only stabilized & germs eliminated. Similar for gonorrhea, must be treated promptly to eliminate bacteria, complications of of urethral strictures in men can be cured. Infertility in both sexes frequently incurable. Hiv can be stabilized by meds, not cured. ...Read more

If I have an std, like gonorrhea or chlamydia, and happen to be allergic to penicillin, what antibiotic can I take?

or spectomycine can be used 2gm single doseim. But specticomycine is not available in us
for chlamydia we use single dose of zithromax 1gm or vibramycine for 10 days. ...Read more

He has discharge, mild irritation during urination and sometimes itchy. He tested for std chlamydia gonorrhea all negative. What else can it be?

He has the STD NGU: Any discharge from the penis almost always is an STD. The most common cause is nongonococcal urethritis (NGU). Chlamydia causes about 30% of NGU cases, so your partner is in the 70% for whom the exact cause is unknown. He still needs treatment, and you need to be examined, tested for common STDs, and treated. Same for any other recent sex partners he might have had. Good luck! ...Read more

Orgasm: Orgasm both helps relieve the pain of menstrual cramps, but can also induce cramping (which lasts a short time). Clitoral stimulation may be inducing cramps in you if it is close to your period, but usually the effect is to make the cramps less painful. I would recommend taking Ibuprofen 600 mg about an hour before you plan to be intimate to help lessen cramping, unless you have been told by a doctor not to take Ibuprofen (issues with easy bleeding/bruising, gastric ulcer).
