Well, generally, most doctors, even general physicians are knowledgeable enough to treat STD's. You just have to be honest with your doctor when he/she asks you questions.
Generally, male patients are more comfortable going to male doctors. Women, likewise, go to female doctors.
Its important that STD's be treated as early as possible. There are a lot of possible complications, not to mention spreading it to other people, that may arise from untreated STD's.
If you're really very particular though, a male patient can go to a urologist, and a female patient can go to a female urologist (although there are still very few female urologists in the country), or to an OB-GYN.
Believe it or not, I don't think I've ever gone to a doctor/set an appointment by myself. Do I just pick a clinic, head for the front desk, then ask for an appointment with a (male) doc? Or maybe just do it over the phone?
Go to an internist who specializes on infectious diseases. He or she will take your history how you acquired the disease. She or he will do physical examination on you, request for blood test to confirm the microorganism. Afterwards, necessary treatment will have to be taken. Do this ASAP to avoid complications. I hope i answered your questions.
well, I don't know if what I saw on Sex and the City is accurate, but when Samantha had herself checked, the doctor asked her a bunch of questions about her lifestyle and stuff aside from getting her blood.
For the females, I think they do the qtip down there. Whereas the guys (I went through this myself), they get a fair amount of blood... ....through a syringe that looks like for horses (and at the same time, they injected me with something that's for checking TB). Buti na lang, naka-labas ang cleavage ng nurse na sexy.
Go to your ob-gyn. For some STD, she/he will take a vaginal sample. The process is very similar to when you get a pap smear, which is not painful at all. For other STDs such as HIV, a blood sample is required. My ob-gyn usually sends me to the lab for this.
I just got back from the hospital after suffering acute tonsilopharyngitis... and im still in recovery.. but after a day at the house, i urinated twice and in both ocassion, there's this mild pain on it. Is it std?? I dont have rashes or any other symptom, just this mild pain i felt... I'm paranoid to the idea because i have multiple sex partners.. err.... hehe...
It could be a urinary tract infection. The causative agent that has caused your tonsillopharyngitis (Streptococcus sp. has this tendency to cause an infection someplace else in the body, particularly the kidneys. Aside from the pain from voiding (aka dysuria), do you also have difficulty in starting or stopping peeing? Or is there blood in your urine? These are just some that i recall from med school, but to be on the safe side, better have yourself checked by an Ob-Gyne to be sure.
