Having unprotected sex (with an infected person) doesn't mean you are going to get infected; but you are putting yourself at high risk. If one continues to have sex (unprotected) with an infected person chances are the STD negative person will become infected. Most STDs are more easily transmitted than others.
People who are getting infected with STDs are people whose partner is unaware of their status (if they know they had an STD they would be treated for it), in cases like herpes not all sexual acts lead to infection.
I had an unprotected sex encounter a month ago with a CSW. I've tested for chlamydia (urethral swab), urine testing, Gram Stain, VDRL on the 4th week. Results came negative.
There are no visible symptoms that i can observe in my penis except for some patches of discoloration on the glans. It is not itchy nor painful. I observed it to be darker in the previous weeks and seems to be getting lighter. Would you have an idea on what is it? Or is discoloration normal?
Also, since i've taken those tests already, would you suggest me to take another round of tests? and when?
Also, what other tests should i take to ensure that im cleared from everything?
