STIs

Quite literally asking this for a friend (I swear, gay here). What are the odds of transmission from male to female if the male was on the 6th day of treatment for Gonorrhea / Chlamydia? He is too embarrassed/worried to share that he got it from a guy (not me!) but his girlfriend made it impossible for him to abstain on the 6th day of his treatment. He is now worried he gave it to her. Thank you all!

It takes 7 days for the medicine to work in the body and cure Chlamydia/Gonorrhea infection. If he had sex without a condom during the 7 days after taking the medicine, he could still pass the infection to sex partners, even if he had no symptoms.

He should tell her it is important for her to get treatment for Gonorrhea/Chlamydia. 

He could also use the std.com to send an anonymous text to his girlfriend.  

Hi I'm 17 and I noticed small white dots at the top of my clitoris. I've masturabted quite frequently but I'm confused on what this might be. I'm sexually active and the dots are painless, I wouldn't know if they were even there.

They could be small skin cyst (epidermal or sebacous cysts) that occur from irritation.  

They should go away on their own.  

If they are painful or bothersome schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Center for to get it checked out. 

Corner Health Center is open and scheduling Televisits. 

Hello! I'm 28M. I was diagnosed with chlamydia and I'm already treating it with antibiotics. I date my girlfriend for 5 months now and had unprotected sex as long as we decided to officially date. I didn't have any sexual partner for a while (months) before her. The facts are strange because we indeed stayed on quarentine (COVID-19). I don't live with her, but we've been in touch almost always. My personal research found that Chlamydia transmission is exclusively by sex. As you may imagine, this made the situation pretty strange, of course. Given the context my questions are: - If I/she was already infected but asymptomatic: can she/I get infected but get the symptoms only 5 months after? - Is there any way to backtrack the transmission chain?

Many people are asymptomatic and have chlamydia infection.  

People can have it a long time and not have symptoms. 

There is not a way to backtrack the transmission chain

Both you and your partner need treatment for the infection.  

About a month or two ago I noticed a small red patch on the shaft of my penis. It isn't itchy or even noticeable aside from seeing it. It feels smooth and thin. What could this be?

It is unclear from your description of what this would be.  

Schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health to have it evaluated. 

Hi I'm 18 years old and never had sex before and my and boyfriend and I are about to do the deed but I'm nervous. Is that normal. And also I'm worried how it may feel and I'm worried it might hurt so and idk what to do.

All of those worries are normal.  Talk to your partner about them and  "do the deed" when you are ready.

Couple of things to consider:

If you do not want to get pregnant you need to find out what form of birth control/contraception is right for you. 

Also, you want to protect yourself from a  (sexually transmitted infection) . Using condoms will prevent sexually transmitted infections.  If your partner has been sexually active before he can get tested to make sure he does not have an infection. 

Please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or at Corner Health Center to get a birth control method that is right for you. 

Corner Health is doing phone visits during the Corona epidemic.  

So I recently was with a male. And now I have stuff in the back of my throat, and some discharge down below. I was wondering if I should get in to be tested? Also I was curious on how expensive testing is, and how much it would be to get medicine to help with this issue? Thanks.

What you describe sounds like you may have a sexually transmitted infection .  Please schedule an appointment for STI testing at your primary care provider or Corner Health Center or you local health department. 

You can get low cost testing and treatment is available also at low/no cost at Corner Health Center   

So i have a question, this guy I've been seeing for 6 months told me he once had an out break of the herpes versus but he hasnt had an out break in years. He said we are okay as long as he's not having an out break, and he said he can always feel it coming and knows the signs. Well here is some history about me. Im female, i have had cold sores on my mouth years ago and maybe here and there throughout the years as I've struggled with tough acne as well as psoriasis. I've also had cervical cancer cells removed years but I've had good paps since then. Oh i also have a dental fistula, from a poorly executed root canal procedure done a couple years ago, and it is an open wound at times, most days. We both do oral, and i let him do anal. So my questions are with his history is he still at risk for transferring to me at any time even though he said he could tell when he is going to have an out break? Next question, do i have a chance of getting cervical cancer/ cells / again? Doesn't it just lay dormant once you have it? And since I've had cold sores on my mouth, would going down on him trigger his herpes2? I know these are some extensive questions but im too embarrassed to ask any doctor's office here because everyone knows everyone and people talk, regardless of HIPAA, so i appreciate anything you can tell me,thanks

1) Abnormal cervical cells are most likely from HPV which is human papilloma virus. 

If you have regular negative pap smears that means you no longer have the virus which can go on to cause cervical cancer

 

2) HSV is herpes simplex virus.  There are 2 types.  Type 1 (oral) and Type 2 (genital).  

Both types are spread by direct contact.  Oral can be spread to the genitals via oral sex and genital can be spread to the mouth via oral sex. 

The virus may be spread when there is an obvious lesion and prior to that when people feel the virus coming.  However, it is also thought that the virus both type 1 and type 2 may spread when there are no signs.  

 

If you have further questions or concerns schedule a confidential visit with your primary care provider, at Corner Health or at your local health department adult clinic. 

My vagina burns when I pee, but just hurts when I move around or sit. I have never had sex with anyone so it can't be and STD or and STI. What do I do?

There are many things that can cause the discomfort that you describe.  It could be a uti art tract infection , there could be a cyst or skin irritation .  

Please schedule an appointment with your primary care provider or Corner health Center to have this checked

hi, i’m a teenager and i’ve had sex with 3 dudes over the past month, the first dude we didn’t use a condom, the second dude we used a condom, and the third dude we didn’t use a condom,and i masturbate frequently as well.Well after a week since i’ve had sex with the third dude i had this thick clumpy discharge and some discomfort (soreness feeling) around my labia when i wiped .. it didn’t smell bad though, it smelled normal! and i was about to be on my period so i kind of ignored it but so the first two days of my period i didn’t notice anything weird, the discomfort stopped.. only hurt when i pulled my tampon out but the thick discharge came out on the tampon. So i’ve been drinking a lot of water hoping it’ll just go away on its own and hoping my period will help clean whatever this is out but today while i was showering i noticed small tiny bumps around my vaginal opening & lips(not the inside of my vagina my actual skin) and my outside vaginal lips are swelling and i’ve noticed a slight fishy smell so now i’m definitely concerned and confused.. i searched my symptoms and i’m not sure whether it could just be some type of infection or any STD if you have any idea of what it could be please help!

What you describe may be an STI. Please schedule an appointment with your Health care provider or at Corner health for testing and treatment 

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.
