STIs

I fingered a girl with genital herpes and immediately after sometime I touched my penis. Is it possible that I will get herpes? That girl was not having an outbreak. And I don't have any cuts on my fingers or on my penis.

Herpes is spread by contact with the herpes lesion. There does not need to be a break in the skin for it to be spread.    (There is some thought that the virus may be active a for a short time before the lesions appear. ) If there were no obvious lesions it is unlikey that the virus was spread.   

My bf had contact with someone with HPV, he said she had genital warts and he made her oral, should I be concerned that he might be infected since he cheated with this girl but had sex with me some days after

Genital warts are spread by direct contact.  If he contacted them on his month after oral, he can spread them to you.  

Last night I got oral sex from a girl that has hsv-2. As soon after it happened my body felt weird and so did my penis. My pee kind of burned last night considering I held it in while she did it. I stopped her no more than 5 minutes she was doing it but as good as it felt it kinda felt weird on my penis as soon as she did it . I'm so confused and kind of scared to symptoms show directly after am I at extreme risk getting oral from a girl with hsv-2?

In order for herpes to be spread there has to be contact with the lesion.  That means that the girl you got oral sex from would have to have a HSV-2 (genital herpes) lesion in her mouth to pass it on to your penis.  

Also symtoms typically take approximately 4 days to show up. Also burning when you pee does not sound like it is from herpes.  

If you develop a sore or area of discomfort on your penis please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner to have it checked.  If you continue to have burning when you pee you should also have it checked to make sure you do not have any other infection.  

My boyfriend and I (both gay) recently had oral sex. I didn’t insert any of his genitals inside me but he cummed on both my hand & on my face and it started to burn. When he cummed on my hand I had what appeared to look like red spots all over my hand which frightened me. I went to wash it off as soon as he cummed on me and my face was red and tingled for a few days. 2 days later I started feeling tingling sensation around my lips and then developed like a rash on right lip (this went away after a day but then came back slightly and then again went away). Then I had the rash reappear again but on the other side of my lip (this too went away after a day). The spots on my hand went away after an hour but it still very much frightened me as I’ve never had this happen before. I’m scared that he might have given me an STI or an STD.

What you are describing sounds like an allergic type of reaction.  

The other thing to consider when there is a rash is herpes .  But, herpes lesions  generally appear 3-6 days after contact with someone who has herpes.  The lesions are very painful .  It sounds very unlikly that the red spots you describe are herpes.  

One other bit of information.  An STI (sexually transmitted infection) is the same as a STD (sexually transmitted disease)

If this occurs again make an appointment to be seen by your primary care provider or Corner Health Center

which is the difference between an STD and a STI?

They are the same .  Some people refer to them as STIs ; sexually transmitted infections  and some refer to them as STDs ; sexually transmitted diseases. They both describe infections which are transmitted sexually.  Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Trichomonas, HIV, hepatitis, syphillis.

I recently found out that I have chlamydia, I’m getting cured for it right now, it takes a week. And my partner also has it and is also getting cured. Can we still have sex with a condom? And can we have oral sex without a condom? Will i be fine?

The guidelines say to wait 7 days for cure of the infection.  Using a condom will prevent the reoccurence of the infection.  Oral sex without a condom may cause oral chlamydia infection.  

If I have oral chlamidya and I kissed my boyfriend, will he get an oral chlamidya infection as well?

Chlamydia infection is spread through direct contact so if you kissed your boyfriend he is at risk of getting the infection. 

You both should be treated and avoid sexual contact for 7 days as that is how long it takes to clear the infection after taking the antibiotics.  

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

Hi, I have a potential STI and an incredibly busy schedule So I’m unable to plan days ahead for an appointment, would it be possible to make a same day appointment, or call ahead of time when I’m on my way?

Yes, we have same day appointments avaialbe. Please call the Corner first thing in the morning to schedule one of our same day appointments. We open at 9am every weekday morning except for Wednesday, we open at 1pm. 734-484-3600

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.
