STIs

Hi, teenage male: a month and a half ago I went on a trip and stayed in a bed for about a week, 3 days into it I discovered a cut/bite/ulcer, (couldn't tell really) and over the next few days discovered about 4 major ones the biggest was no bigger than the circumference of a pencil, and a few smaller just dots (not a lot tho and only on the left side of my penis, around the groin muscle and mid-inner thigh. These went away when I got home and I have had no reoccurrence or issues since then, I have no rashes anywhere else on my body and no signs of wight loss, fatigue, itches or anything else. However, the week before I left I made out with someone (we were naked and I did finger her and put my mouth on her vagina, and she did suck my penis) but we had no penis-vagina connection. Should I think this is some sort of STI or just bed bugs?

What you describe could be a number of things including bed bugs and possibly herpes.  You do not say if the lesion was itchy or painful.  Did/does your partner have any sores on her vagina or mouth?

If the sores reappear , please schedule an appointment ASAP with your primary care provider or with Corner health for diagnosis  and treatment

Hello, I am a 21-year-old woman and I have a few questions about sex. When should I have sex? A few days or weeks before my period, or right after my period is finished? Is it okay if I can have sex without my partner not using a condom? What are the chances of getting sexual transmitted diseases?

Anytime you have penis-vagina sex without the use of birth control you are putting yourself at risk for unplanned pregnancy unless you are aware of the exact time of ovulation which is very difficult to know. 

Anytime you have sex without a condom you are putting yourself at risk for a sexually transmitted infecton unless you absolutely know that your partner does not have an sexually transmitted infection. 

Please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner health center to have further discussion about these important questions. 

I’m a 17 year old female. I recently discovered a lump on the right side of my lower bikini line which I’ve been extremely concerned about. After googling it, I discovered a number of things it could be related to, some of which included STI’s, cysts, and even tumours. I have never been sexually active, so I don’t think it’s an STI, but I am concerned that this may be linked to cancer? It is a little more than 2 centimetres in size, is hard, under the skin (near the bone) and pretty much painless. It’s only on the right side. It’s a little hard to tell because I just noticed it recently, but I don’t think it has grown since I found it. So far, I have not experienced symptoms of any sort. I’d just like to know if this is something very serious before I consult my doctor about it. (I don’t want to have someone check ‘down there’ if it is not completely necessary). Please help me.

What you describe could be an infected hair follicle, perhaps from shaving or a small cyst.  You can try warm compresses to the area.  Apply warm water to a washcloth and towel and apply to area. 

If the lump continues schedule an appointment with your health care provider or at Corner health

I’m a male of the age of 21. A girl asked me for unprotected sex and I did I ejaculated inside of her and informed her of this she said it would be okay. Unfortunately me being drunk I didn’t ask for her contact information or if she was doing any form of birth control how worried should I be?

Unprotected sex can lead to unplanned pregnancy. 

From the information provided it is unclear if she uses any type of birth control which would  prevent unplanned pregnancy.

You may also consider getting tested for sexually transmitted infections.

Are your STI tests free and do I need anybody with me?

If you do not have insurance or you choose not to use your insurance then we are able to provide the lab costs free of charge.  

If I was tested for an STD and found positive, would I need my parents/ insurance/prescription or can I pay on site for the corresponding medication discreetly by myself

If you are a minor you can get confidential sti testing and treatment without your parent's permission.  No bills will go home for the visit.  Please schedule with Corner health 734-484-3600 

If I had chlamydia and was going under treatment for it, and gave my boyfriend a handjob with my saliva, is there a chance he might have contracted it?

It takes 7 days for the antibiotics to completely work to cure a chlamydia infection.  If you had oral chlamydia (in your mouth) it is possible it could be transmitted.

If you had vaginal chlamydia and there was no contact with the vagina then it would not be transmitted

Hi, my boyfriend fingered me a few months ago (give or take 5 or 4 months ago) he had sores on his finger and did not wash his hands before he went down there. I am struggling with a green vaginal discharge since that day, what could this indicate ?

It is unclear if it could be related to the sores.  Please schedule an appointment at Corner Health or with your primary care provider to have it checked out.
