Past Activity: Need opinion for test and medication related to STIs.
I had unprotected sex with a women on Friday 30/11/18... Just wanted to know when I should get myself tested for STD's or STI's and what tests are required. Presently I dont have any symptoms. Please let me know what to look out for or should I take some precautionary medication. This was my first time I engaged in unprotected sex and don't have any history of STD's.

Reply: Dear Sir,
Some of the common STD’s include Chlamydia, Syphilis, Genital Herpes, Hepatitis C/B,HIV, Trichomoniasis, HPV, etc. There is no specific time when you can get tested for all of these, as time for each infection to manifest varies. Symptoms may or may not appear and you may still be having the infection. If they do appear, it may be as early as one week or months or even years later and may include discharge from penis, irritation/itching or blisters/sores in/around genital area, rashes, painful urination, etc. As explained, each infection takes varying amount of time to show up in lab testing sample so you would have to get the tests done at varying times, for eg. 1-2 weeks: gonorrhoea and chlamydia; 3-6 weeks: syphilis; 6 weeks to 3 months: HIV, hepatitis C and B, herpes. You may also consult a doctor locally for check up and take appropriate treatment if any infection is detected. There is no precautionary medication to be taken but you may take care to use condom in case you engage in sex anytime in between to prevent transmission of infection, if any, to your partner.
