Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

you used a condom, that was the best thing you did.

Dr. David :

that decreases risks of HIV, gonorrhea, chamydia, trichomonas to basically close to zero.

Dr. David :

washing and taking a bath afterwards is a good idea as well.

Dr. David :

you are really only at risks for herpes and HPV virus.

Dr. David :

and there really isn't anything you can do to prevent herpes or HPV virus.

Dr. David :

the more sex partners you have, the higher the risks for herpes or HPV virus.

Customer:

I m just a bit worried . It was my first time and scared. Regretting what I did. Will never do again

Dr. David :

I understand you are worried.

Customer:

What are the symptoms of hpv or herpes.. Are these curable?

Dr. David :

herpes causes painful blisters in the genitals

Dr. David :

but the herpes virus can stay dormant in your body for years before it manifests as painful blisters.

Dr. David :

once you get herpes, there is no cure, but it can be treated with anti-viral medications.

Dr. David :

your immune system can get rid of HPV virus which causes genital warts.

Customer:

What are things I should watch for in the next couple of weeks just to reassure myself mentally that I didn't catch anything . Do's and fonts

Customer:

Donts*

Dr. David :

there are no signs for when you contract herpes.

Dr. David :

herpes is an invisible virus which can lay dormant for years.

Dr. David :

there are really no dos and don'ts

Dr. David :

just keep bathing regularly and washing with soap once a day.

I need not be worried about hiv right? Do I still need to take a test? If yes then probably after how many days should I take one?

you can take a test, but it will be negative if the condom didn't break.
