Question Asked:

"About 4 years ago, I had random sex with someone who seemed to give me some sort of infection, even though I used a condom. There were red lacerations in my groin area and they hurt a little. After a while, they disappeared and I didn't think much of it. Earlier this year I did an HIV test and I was confirmed negative. I am now in a serious monogamous relationship and somewhat sexually active. However my woman thinks I may have given her an infection due to itching in her private area. I told her of my experience years ago and she suggests I get tested. What kind of test can I do? She is a bit more experienced so she also noticed that my semen is weirdly light brown coloured and a bit watery. Is this something to worry about? Thanks "

    Good afternoon, the itching your partner has might not necessarily be sexually transmitted, is she having whitish vaginal discharge as well. This could be Vaginal candidiasis. Shé needs to avoid douching and avoid use of nylon pants also avoid unnecessary use of antibiotics. Secondly, semen should be whitish in color and shouldn't be brown as you said. You might have to go to the hospital to have a semen analysis done also you might have your urine tested to rule out any urinary Tract Infection and get treated appropriately if there is any. I'll advise you go with your partner so you can get both tested and treated together to avoid reinfecting each other. Take care now.
