    I had unprotected sex with my girlfriend & she later told me a couple weeks after that she has a yeast infection (she had known before we had sex). Is it possible that I can get this infection too? If so what are some of the symptoms and is it life threatening? She later told me that her doctor told her, she will always develop this infection before/during her period. Is there a way she could put an end to this recurring infection? I appreciate a response at your earliest convenience.

Since l was struggling to maintain an erection l had difficulty in actually....

    Is it HSV or a bad BV ?

    I have recently been with a partner sexually for a while now, have never had any issues. Well we had intercourse last Friday and then I started my menstrual on Saturday. I was having some pain but believed it to be due to the menstrual cycle. While come Tuesday I notice a sore and immediately went to the ER. Doctor said I have an UTI and BV and herpes. He didn't run a panel for it or swab the area. Myself nor my partner have never been exposed to HSV. I know you could carry the virus and be asymptomatic....
  • UTI or STD??

    Hello. i am a 19 yo male and i went to the doctor yesterday concerned about a possible UTI, as i am feeling a slight burning sensation when i urinate. they prescribed me with 3 medicines - all to cute gohnerrea, chlamydia and trich. the only reason he did is because he found it hard to believe a 19 year old male would have a UTI. so he sent the tests away - i got the first half back today and i have 25 leukocytes in my urine and 0 nitrates?? what could this mean? either way i am cured now.. but i....

    UTI after intercourse

    I am a 44 year old woman, I have had intercourse twice in the past 4 years and after each time I have developed a UTI. I have good hygiene, the area was clean before and after intercourse. Those are the only UTI's I have ever had. Could this be a common issue when one has been sexually inactive for a long period of time? I'm just starting to date again, and am wondering if this is somewhat normal? I find it a little disheartening at the moment.

    Bleeding after orgasm

    I’ll try to make this as short as possible. I’m 28 years old and have recently had some issues with vaginal bleeding outside of my normal period. I’ve always had regular periods but in 2014 I started to bleed quite heavily and for a few weeks so I went to be seen. The dr performed a Pap smear and it came back abnormal. They told me to wait it out and do another in 6 months. 6 months later it was still abnormal so the next step was a colposcopy. I had that scheduled but soon found out I was pregnant....

    Do I have oral herpes?

    3 nights ago I was forced into giving oral sex. The day after (about 10 hours later) I felt a sore spot in my lip. Yesterday a red lump started growing on my lip. I squeezed it and clear liquid came out. It doesn't hurt at all and there is only one big lump (not many tiny ones). Can you please tell me if I have oral herpes and if I should be worried?
