I tested negative for std's nine months ago and I have had the same partner for ten months. Could I have a STD that didn't show up? My dr was thorough

Std checks: The answer is almost always yes. There are 2 main reasons for this: (1) none of the tests that doctors do for sexually transmitted diseases are 100% accurate; you can miss up to 5-15% of infections. (2) you have to be absolutely certain that your partner has never been exposed, and generally, while you can feel quite confident, if you trust him/her, you cannot be 100% sure. ...Read more

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

There is no one test that tests for all possible STDs. If your symptom(s) persist, follow up with your doc. Good luck! ...Read more

Tested negative 4 STDs. Iv had a small white lump at BOTTOM of my dicks head where it forms a "V". I just poped it with a needle. Should I worry?!

Tested negative 4 STDs. Iv had a small white lump at BOTTOM of my dicks head where it forms a "V". I just poped it with a needle. Should I worry?!

Self-treatment: It is most likely Pearly Penile Papules (that really is the name!) and they are not serious. I would recommend NOT poking needles in your penis, or any other lesion. You are more likely to create an infection than to solve one! Self-surgery (poking at pustules or other skin things) is not usually a good idea. If you are bothered by something, see your doctor. ...Read more

Hi docs I have tested negative for STDs and prescribed ofloxacin for 2 weeks due to orchitis. I have finished the course but still feel a slight sche?

Here are some ...: A 2-wek use of ofloxacin should be long enough for most infection-related epididymitis - epididymoorchitis. Clinically, it sounds ofloxacin has helped you, but does not necessarily rid of pain / ache completely, which may take time to resolve; how long does it take to disappear? It widely varies. Detail? Ask Doc timely. Besides, orchitis is less common than epididymitis-epididymoorchitis in men. ...Read more

If i already tested negative for std's what is this rash on my penis?

Blood tests?: If you are referring to just blood tests, you may realize that blood tests often do not detect problems on the skin. You may be allergic to the latex in the condom, too much irritation from too much sexual activities ( i guess you are asking the question on behalf of your partner), a yeast infection (often transmitted from the female partner especially when uncircumcised).... ...Read more

My new boyfriend says he's tested negative for std's. Should I require him to use a condom although i'm pregnant?

Ive only had sex once & the guy said hes tested negative for STDs  I took a vaginal health test & it said my pH was normal. Could I still have an std?

Here are some ...: Normal pH in vagina doesn't guarantee no STD. To definitely help you, bring the detailed info on your sex life to seek professional evaluation and counseling so to confirm your current status of concerning STDs and gain more knowledge in practicing sex life. At 16, it's still advisable to do so at the company of your parents or legal guardian. ...Read more

May need to . .: . . . wait to see if comes back again. We would never want to give you a diagnosis for something that we cannot prove.However, if you are sexually active, and if the sores were painful, and if they drained some clear fluid before they scabbed over, you may need to consider Herpes. Sometimes, if the virus culture is performed after the fluid has drained, the culture will be negative.CONDOMS please ...Read more

What causes a barlothin cyst my pap tested negative for STDs ,should i still be worried i may give my partner any std? I guess im going crazy

Bartholin duct cyst: The Bartholin's glands are small fluid secreting glands that moisten the outer vaginal region. They connect to the surface via small ducts. If the duct becomes blocked, the fluid backs up and a cyst forms. Bartholin's cysts can become infected, sometimes from an STD. The cysts themselves do not cause the infection, and an uncomplicated Bartholin's cyst is not infectious. ...Read more

I'm 19 and found a painful red lump directly next to my clitoris on labia minora. Partner and I just tested negative for STDs. Could this be serious?

Tests, tests, tests: It depends just exactly what was tested for. You may have an inflamed Bartholin's cyst from your brief description. Why don't you visit your doc and discuss that with him/her and get it dealt with, whatever it is.

I had anal sex without protection when i took my penis out i realized i was bleeding we had both tested negative for STDs before should I be concerned?

Yes!: Bleeding suggests visibly broken skin which then allows for bacterial & viruses to get into your body & cause an infection. Just because you both tested negative before doesn't mean that you're both negative at the time you had unprotected sex. It's possible to get infected a day or so before a blood test that subsequently returns negative (since down too early). That's why you need serials tests. ...Read more

What can look like pid to doctor but test negative.Doctor seen lots of green discharge when examining but tested negative for std.Having a lot of pain?

Quite common: Lots of PID is not caused by the common STDs like gonorrhea or chlamydia, especially in somewhat older women like you (over 30). In other cases, the tests miss them. If the doctor diagnosed PID, that's almost certainly what you have. Take the antibiotics as prescribed. Also make sure your sex partner(s) are examined and probably treated. Good luck! ...Read more
