My friend had sti so doctors had to "pull" it out using this thing that goes in penis. Would this sti treatment only happen from vaginal sex?
Confusing question: I really don't understand what you are asking; I think you have misunderstood something your friend said. No STI is treated by "pulling" something from the penis.

Harmless, not an STD: Mycoplasma hominis is a normal bacteria in the genital tract. It can be shared among sex partners, but causes no disease and is not considered an STD.

Discuss with your doctor, or see a genitourinary medicine specialst, e.g. maybe visit your local GUM clinic. Good luck! ...Read more
What's the treatment for cervicitis, not caused by std/sti? I think, i may have had this for years.
How do you know if you have an STI before you go for testing? Id rather go to boh for treatment before my gyn sees me.
You can;t: Std's require vaginal and blood testing. Many are without symptoms and must be treated to avoid serious medical problems now and in the future. Many states also require notification of any and all sexual partners as well to prevent spread of the disease. ...Read more
