Hi again, If I have clamydia then does this not make it

Resolved Question:

Hi again,
If I have clamydia then does this not make it easier to contract hiv? I have heard that hiv can use other STD's like a vehicle?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

welcome

Customer:

hi

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Actually, you are right but the main thing is that the infection causes inflammation and lesions or ulcers inside the vagina which is why it is said that when one has a sexually transmitted disease another STD can be acquired more easily.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

But in your scenario there is no chances of getting HIV

Customer:

so if say I caught clamydia from a momentary oral contact

Customer:

I mean it was 1 second no longer

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Have you had any symptoms suggestive of chlamydia?

Customer:

the only thing I have is a slight tenderness or very mild intermittent pain in one of my testes

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I would not worry since your contact was extremely low risk or having NIL risk

Customer:

so I took a single dose of anti-biotic last night and it seems to of subsided

Dr. Shahzad MD :

ok

Customer:

so if one were to contract clamydia via oral contact, it would not be possible to contract hiv yes?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Just to be on the safe side and for the peace of your mind you should be tested for all STDs but I am pretty sure you will be negative.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Your chances of getting HIV are very low indeed

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Even your symptoms that you have mentioned may or may not be due to chlamydia.

Customer:

ok, well I have had the full screening just pending the results.

Customer:

Thanks for your help

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You are most welcome
Wish you all the best.
