Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

no, a mild fever would not be from an STD.

Customer:

Is it possible that i might have got hepatitis from this oral sex encounter?

Customer:

or something else

Customer:

i received oral sex only

Dr. David :

hepatitis would be unlikely

Customer:

hi dr. david

Dr. David :

you can always get blood testing for hepatitis.

Dr. David :

it sounds like you are letting your anxiety get out of control here.

Customer:

is hepatitis treatable?

Dr. David :

yes, hepatitis is treatable.

Customer:

ya maybe the anxiety is causing the mild fever

Customer:

i don't have any other symptoms

Dr. David :

yes,

Dr. David :

I agree

Customer:

i'd probably have more symptoms if i had hepatitis

Customer:

right..

Customer:

is it difficult to get hepatitis from receiving oral sex?

Customer:

like 1-1000 chance

Dr. David :

1 in 100000 chance.

Customer:

wow, okay i'm being highly anxious so

Dr. David :

yes

Dr. David :

too anxious

Customer:

does nay std cause a mild fever.

Customer:

does any std cause a mild fever?

Dr. David :

no.

Customer:

i nned to be more careful in future as this encounter has caused me to lose sleep etc

Dr. David :

no

Customer:

i'm very anxious

Dr. David :

you need to see your doctor about this anxiety and get some treatment for it.

Customer:

i ended up in hospital over a year ago

Customer:

because of stress, anxiety etc

Customer:

and alcohol makes it much worse

Customer:

need to get sorted

Dr. David :

yes,

Dr. David :

you should avoid alcohol

Customer:

i'm the guy that asked you the question about the white spot

Customer:

trying to rule out all of these things

Dr. David :

yes.

Customer:

...

Customer:

so stds are spread through unprotected anal and vaginal sex then... not oral

Customer:

or its very slim to spread stds through oral

Customer:

like 1-10000

Customer:

as you said earlier

yes.
