Probably not HIV: Acute retroviral syndrome (ARS) doesn't normally cause nasal congestion or drip. Sounds like you had a cold, and it also sounds like your partner is at low risk for having HIV. But of course you should be tested to be sure. You can expect a negative result. Also get tested for other common STDs (gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis), which are far more likely than HIV in this situation.

Std (Definition)

This is a disease which can be transmitted from one person to another person through sexually related activities. 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

Is there an STD that causes a sore throat and gum pain?

Is there an STD that causes a sore throat and gum pain?

Yep: Syphillis is one std that causes sores. They are called chancres. They can be located anywhere in the mouth. Go see a doctor and a round of antibiotics could clear up the whole problem. Just don't have any physical contact with anyone until you are cleared. Not a nice "gift" to give to others.

If I do have an STD that causes feverish symptoms or sore throat, would the sore throat be consistent?

If I do have an STD that causes feverish symptoms or sore throat, would the sore throat be consistent?

Sore throat: Most stds cause urimary symptoms like drainage from the opening of the penis or painful urination. It is not very common to have sore throats from stds. You could get a sore throat from herpes but that would be uncommon without lip or mouth lesions. If you have throat lesions -whitish, you could have your doctor check a throat culture to see what is going on good luck!

Prostatitis from oral sex. All std tests negative. Did the oral sex cause this. Did ngu cause prostatitis? 1 month cipro (ciprofloxacin) didn't cure. Perennial ache

Prostatitis from oral sex. All std tests negative. Did the oral sex cause this. Did ngu cause prostatitis? 1 month cipro (ciprofloxacin) didn't cure. Perennial ache

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.

What STD has a red sore on penis with no itching. What could cause a red sore under foreskin of penis?

See Below: There are many potential causes of red spots on the penis, most of which are "not" STDs and "a picture is worth a thousand words." The STDs syphilis (painless ulcer) and herpes (tiny blisters) are usually self-limiting. Benign causes: balanitis (fungal); psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis, lichen planus, contact/allergic dermatitis, fixed drug eruption. Pre-cancerous: Erythroplasia of Queyrat.

Sore vaginal opening after sex no other symptoms. Have been tested for std's & had 2 occurrences of BV but treated. Cause? Treatment?

Sore vaginal opening after sex no other symptoms. Have been tested for std's & had 2 occurrences of BV but treated. Cause? Treatment?

Irritation: Tough to say without an exam and history. Sometimes, if your vagina is not properly lubricated form your natural secretions, it can get irritated and inflamed with friction during the act of sex. At times, you may need to lubricate and that could be the cure to your issues. But get an exam to be safe and properly diagnosed to be sure. Good luck.

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!

Can you get std's in your mouth that cause symptoms of inflamed sore gums that bleed constantly and receed from your teeth? Only started after oral.

Can you get std's in your mouth that cause symptoms of inflamed sore gums that bleed constantly and receed from your teeth? Only started after oral.

Possible: When we speak of std's we are referring to chlamydia, syphilis, gonorrhea, & hiv. Oral sex may result in sore throat which affects the nasopharynx. Any one of these diseases can produce symptoms of irritation associated with bacterial or viral infection. Bleeding gums are a sign of gingivitis or periodontitis which is in itself a low grade infection. You should be tested for std's.

Can an STD in your throat cause one side to be sore, one tonsil mildly swollen, with redness on the crown of your throat, and itchy?

Can an STD in your throat cause one side to be sore, one tonsil mildly swollen, with redness on the crown of your throat, and itchy?

Sore throat: It could be especially if there is alot of pus but it is much more likely to be from another bacteria. If it is on one side it could be an abscess and that needs drainage since antibiotics are less likely to work. All and all a trip to the MD is in order.

I have a mild, non-worsening sore throat for two weeks after one-time vaginal oral sex on HPV positive woman with no other STD. Can HPV cause this?

I have a mild, non-worsening sore throat for two weeks after one-time vaginal oral sex on HPV positive woman with no other STD. Can HPV cause this?

Here are some. ..: Generally speaking, HPV-related lesions tend to be asymptomatic and appears with a longer incubation than 2 wks. Therefore, it is reasonable to just watch and see if the current sore throat may slowly fade away like that resulting from viral upper respiratory infection. If not, seek professional evaluation and counseling in one week. Of course, see doc soon if the symptoms worsen.

What causes vaginal boils? I knowits not an std because have been having them since I started my period. They look like pimples but are sore pus filled

What causes vaginal boils? I knowits not an std because have been having them since I started my period. They look like pimples but are sore pus filled

Some people are: More susceptible to them and they are caused by either bacteria from the top of the skin getting under the skin and then causing the boils or spreading internally. They can start by irritation to the area, such as shaving. They are treated with warm compresses, but sometimes need an oral antibiotic or surgical drainage. Please see and discuss with your doctor.

Can worrying and stressing about weather you have STD or not cause STD sym? Stomach bug, cough, sore like paper cut both end side of lips, headach...?

Worrying: Worrying and stressing out will make one sick. This obsession weakens the immune system. But get this: none of the symptoms you describe are in any way indicative of an std! you are making yourself sick. Ang up the smart phone for one week and get on with living! Your life needs you!

STD cause drainage in throat? Days after sex got sore w red bumps back of throat still there 3 months later. Strep/mono/std neg. Spitting lots phlegm

Asked and Answered: First, has a physician examined you and confirmed that you do have red abnormal anatomy or 'spots' on the back of your throat? Second, there is no STD that causes your symptoms lasting for three months and you have been told this repeatedly. Third, this situation will not be solved on the internet. If your physician is not helping you in person you need a new physician. Perhaps an ENT or allergie
