Question: Unprotected anal sex worried about HIV


 jo2dxb - Mon Oct 22, 2007 8:07 am

29yo male who had a history of STD for many times due to unprotected anal sex. i ve been self medicated with a shot of 500mg rocephin, 100mg doxycyclin twice daily for 2 weeks and proctoglyvenol suppositories. The doctor who diagnosed me for having STD was unsure what kind of STD i had before, but i remember that im having this lowerback pain, itchiness on my anus and whitish mucous on my stool, and when the time i start feeling the symptoms again, i felt ashamed to go back to him so i just thought of using the same medicines which he prescibe to me. At some point, it helped me, coz the symptoms disappeared. Im really scared for this. I even tried testing myself for HIV, with the use if HIV testing kit, and the result wa still negative. Not sure if this is 100% accurate. I know that i have a high risk of getting HIV because of the recurring symptoms, i really need help!

User avatar Hi Jo2dxb,

I would recommend you see your doctor for complete STD testing, including HIV. It is important to know if you have been effectively treated or if you need further treatment.

Best wishes.
