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!

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

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?

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

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
