Hi Doc...Pls i had unprotected sex with a close friend (my first time sex), and became paranoid that i may have contracted an STD (particular fear was for HIV- i really dont know why), Two weeks later i went for tests in a lab. My blood was taken and examined but nothing was found. On the 12th week exactly (not a day extra) i went for another test (Heard it's called a rapid test). My finger was pricked, my blood was taken, a chemical was poored on my blood on a paper looking strip, and in less than 7mins the lab woman said i was negative (this was quicker than the first test). I'd like to know if i have nothing more to fear (apparently im still paranoid, even as i type this). I also want to know if i can trust the second test. (Mehn! it was easy, and quick)...THANK YOU
I also have had this burning sensation down there (since the sex) , but the diagnosis still picks nothing on that. Read about something they call thrush. Can it be?
