since you had unprotected sex, you can follow up with testing at the appropriate times. you can get tested for chlamydia, gonorrhea and trich any time after 1 week post encounter. syphilis after 6 weeks. herpes, hiv and hepatitis after 3 months.
did they do any testing for yeast and bacterial infections vaginally when you were seen?
I did get some testing done that day. My Chlamydia and Gonorrhea have already came back negative. I'm still waiting on Syphilis and HIV results. Herpes was not tested (I guess the policy is don't ask, don't test).
You know what, I have a constant yeast infection from my birth control pills. So regular that I just try to ignore it, but I think that might be my problem. Through more searching I found a forum of women who have the same symptoms as me and they've narrowed the reason down to candida bacteria. Supposedly the dry discharge causes dry skin and tearing around that area. So I'm going to look into some treatments for that.
it's only been a month since the encounter so it's too early for most testing.
if you are prone to vaginal yeast, have you ever tried taking femdophilus by jarrow? it's a probiotic that has been shown to replace "good" bacteria to help keep vaginitis minimal. also sometimes changing birth control helps too.
I have switched birth control once, but only experienced a slight improvement. I've never tried taking femdophilus but I am Googling right now.
I buy it from amazon myself. also store it in the fridge after you get it too :) you take it twice a day until you've been vaginitis free for a few months and then go down to daily to help ward off yeast over growth.
