QUESTION: hi i had an unprotected sex with my girlfriend 2 weeks before. now i got an itch in skin of urinary bladder . daily its itching. and i itch it for few seconds and leave it . i m feard whether its an std disease .  so plz clarify me .

ANSWER: Hi Adan,

It takes approximately 3-4 weeks for your body to create antibodies to a possible STI. As its been 2 weeks, it might be to early to do testing, but you can get an STI panel at your primary care providers office or with the local health department. Panels test for 7 of the most common STI's, so if you come out clean for all of those, then its likely to be related to a fungal infection. If you feel that you cant hold out until then and if you have profuse inflammation and swelling, then you should see someone now and see if you can get treatment for it. I'm just curious whether or not you used lubricant or not when you had sex. Was this your first time having unprotected intercourse? If so, then the inflammation and itching can be easily explained. You're likely having friction abrasions and those are caused by sex itself, which is why a water based lubricant is always helpful to cut down on the discomfort of sex for both partners and the after effects. If you have follow-up let me know.

QUESTION: hi john,i just had an vaginal sex and this is my first time of intercourse and i did not use any lubricant .actually thter is an itching on the scrotum area. and i have an another doubt ,after 3 months what and all the test i should take ? and i have planned to take test for styphills ,chalamida,ghoneereha,hiv . is this enough or any other test i shoula take ?

I just talked about that in my previous discussion with you. If you do the standard STI panel, it tests for practically everything. It tests for HIV, Syphilis, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Herpes 1 and 2, HPV, and Hep B & C. So whatever health clinic or doctor you go to, you can ask for a check up about your chief complaint (which is itching or whatever) and also ask about STI testing and they should be able to give that to you.

Best wishes,
