Gonorrhea and Chlamydia from blowjob

I received blowjob from a CSW around a month ago. The blowjob act was unprotected. However, there was no cunnilingus or penetrative sex involved. I know that transmission of HIV in such a case is quite unlikely, however, I am concerned about other STIs, more specifically Gonorrhea and Chlamydia. What I know is that the symptoms for both of them usually appear approximately within 10 days of contracting the infection, for males. Since, it has been more than a month now and I have not experienced any symptoms, except for some rashes around the genital area, which I think is not a classical symptom of these STIs, I wanted to ask:

1. What are chances of contracting Gonorrhea/Chlamydia through unprotected blowjob, with no other type of sex involved?

2. Since these infections are usually treatable with antibiotics, I wanted to ask that what happens if these infections remain untreated for around 6 months or a year? Are these infections treatable a year after contracting them?

3. Considering that no other specific disease is present, can a CBC or urinalysis somehow indicate the presence of these infections?

TIA.

Had sex with CSW and Breakage of condom.

Thanks a lot team for the work you people are doing.

I had a sex with CSW . She looked healthy . While having sex the condom got punctured and she was the one who said the condom is broken . So then we changed the punctured condom and After we were done everything was ok . But after 3-4 days when I was masturbating i felt the slight pain on my penis and with in next 2-3 days I got some white substance coming out of Penis and I felt burning sensation while Peeing . So the next day I went to the Doc . HE gave me Disodium Hydrogen Citrate syrup for UTI and Fluconazole 200 Mg tab and Eberconazole 1% for Fungal Infection he diagnosed . He also asked about if I had any Sexual contact and I said yes. He was ok with it .
After 5 days there was a much of improvement . But yeast was still seen at my Penis . So I thought to change the doctor . My new doctor said that I am suffering from Balanoposthitis and he changed my pills and said me to come after 4 weeks with test of HIV . I am very scared and I don,t know what to do . I have read alot about the symptoms of HIV on net . I am in my 3rd week of the sexual exposure . And i feel like I have been suffering from symptoms like Sweating in Palms and in body at night and 3-4 rashes on my body including two on my hand and there is alot of back ache rest I dont see any other symptoms . Please help me I am very depressed

Thanks in Advance

Please Help!

Dear Volunteers,

I would first like to thank you all for the amazing work!

I am an Indian Male and I had a sexual encounter with a woman of unknown HIV Status. During the intercourse I used 'Thril' Premium Condoms which were bought from local Medical Store. On the back side of the condom pack I found the details i.e., Batch No.: 5616 TH, Mfg. Date: 08/2016, Exp. Date: 07/2019. Manufactured By: JK Ansell Privited Ltd. Marketed By: Population Health Services (India).

But, there is no information about the product made of material. Therefore, I am confused about the certain things about the product mentioned below:
1) The “Thril” Premium Condoms made of which material ? (Latex/Polyurethane/Polyisoprene/Lambskin)
2) These “Thril” Premium Condoms come with Spermicides?
3) Are these “Thril” Premium Condoms protect from STDs and HIV?
4) Can I consider this intercourse was Safe ?

For these queries I searched in net and manufactures website, but didn't get any information. I am trying to contact you through your emails : helpline@aidsvancouver.org and contact@aidsvancouver.org. But your bulk spam firewall system blocking my mail to reach you. The sent mail is being bounced back. Please provide your email details and look in the matter of Spam firewall.

With regards.....

Syphilis Diagnosis

3 Months ago i started having a reddish rash (no warts or sores) on my face, over the cheeks area. I went to the doctor and he suggested getting some exams, i got tested for HIV, Chlamydia and Syphilis and the last one came out positive (1:32)

After the exams i got 3 shots of penicillin with the last one being applied by January 2nd. After that i haven't had any follow up exams until last week that i took the VDRL and it came out (1:32) reactive again.

Does that mean the penicillin didn't work?

PS: i haven't had any sexual activity in the past 4 months

HIV and Other STD Testing Window Period

Hello,

During my last sexual encounter which was due to fantasies with a pre op trans woman, received protected anal, but I got anxious that the condom could have been broken, I have made the following tests:

1. HIV PCR and VDRL at day 8, All negative
2. HIV 1/2 COMBO/DUO Test at day 28, All negative
3. HIV COMBO/DUO , VDLR, Hep B and Hep C at day 94, All negative
4. HIV COMBO/DUO at day 101, Negative.

So basically all is negative, but I still have anxiety that I could have messed something with the window period.

Are HIV and VDRL conclusive after 3 months period?

I would appreciate your kind support in this matter.

Regards,

STD after receiving unprotected oral sex - HIV risk?

Hello,

I received unprotected oral sex from a sexworker a few days ago and was a infected with a STD. I went to see an urologist today and was prescribed antibiotics. The urologist said, that the risk to get infected with HIV by receiving oral sex is very low and as stated in many threads in this forum, it may even be a negligible risk activity. However, I am still very concerned if the presence of a STD in the sexworkers mouth or throat increases the risk of a transmission.
The oral sex was performed for about 3-4 minutes and I did not see any blood on my penis afterwards. The only thing that I noticed afterwards was a strong and very bad oral smell which I did not notice before. I assume the sexworker had a bad oral hygiene.

I feel very concerned and guilty because of this situation. It would be great if you could provide me information on how an STD or bad oral hygiene could increase the risk of HIV transmission in receiving oral sex and how you would evaluate this situation based on your experience.

Sorry for my poor English, I am not a native speaker. And thank you for the important information you provide here and your commitment to help people like me!

Best regards,
F

Oral sex- please help

Dear Team,
Please I need your advise, yesterday I had oral sex with massage worker, she put my sex in her mouth for one or two mins, Also she was using baby oil on my sex while she mastrbiting me with her hands.

Today i have pain on my throat, without any fever or any other symptoms.

I understand the oral sex is low risk, however i still need to hear from your side the chance of getting HIV.

HIV risk

hi, my gf and i got tested for chlamydia and other stds, and we came out positive for chlamydia, and negative for every other std (HIV, herpes, etc).

We got treated for chlamydia and couple days later we boh came back negative for chlamydia. couple days later, she gave me a hand job that led to me getting a scab on my shaft. the next day we had unprotected sex and noticed the scab fell off and very minor cut where the scab used to be. we had unprotected sex about 4 times when my scab fell off and noticed that she was on her period for the last sexual encounter (blood while having sex on my penis from her period). We always wash up after having sex.

MY question is, is it possible to get some type of STD or HIV due to the fact i had a small cut on my penis while she was on her period while we had sex? we both tested negative for all std's including HIV, herpes, syphillis etc. We tested positive for chlamydia, but got treated and then we had sex when tests came back negative. What is my risk for HIV? or any other STD?

Reused condom

I had anal sex in a threesome. Two guys were having sex, one came, so the other came to me and had sex with me (me as a bottom) with the same condom he used with the other guy (like three minutes after). What are the risks of contracting HIV from this situation?
