Liiviin, did you ever get examined for an infection, like a yeast infection or BV, or something like an allergy? I ask, because pimples and itching are more likely to be due to that, than an STI.

So by all means, getting tested for STIs regularly is a very smart thing to do. But it sounds like, in this situation, you're due for an exam with your gynecologist so you can discuss those concerns with them.

He gave me medicene for yeast infection and he tested me for it but I didn't get a call back he gave me the pill prophylacticly cuz he didnt think I had it and I took it sometime in April, so u don't think its an STD?

Well, if you went to see a doctor about this in April, you did not get any results, and the itching still persists, it's time for another visit to the doctor.

When you are there, you can bring up your concern about STIs again, as well. We can't diagnose you or rule anything out over the internet, so you'll want to just tell the doctor what your concern is, and get a thorough exam done.

If they did a STI screening and everything came back negative that is a good sign.

Since the yeast treatment didn't help the itching though, it sounds like it is time to go back and have them take another look.

Right now, your options are to wait for your results, and/or be seen again about the itching.

Perhaps in the meantime, though, we could talk about how to help you change your sexual habits so that you are protecting yourself from STIs as you can be?

What do you think you need in order to be able to insist on condom use, always, for intercourse and oral sex, and to walk away from sex with someone when and if they don't want to have sex safely like that?

Most STIs show up in test results after a month or two. When you get the results the doctor will let you know if it's advisable to retest after some more time has gone by. Even if it isn't mentioned, that is a question you can ask. In fact, all of these questions are good questions to ask the doctor or nurse you speak to.

Have these breakouts been examined by your health care provider? That's really the only way to diagnose what they are and whether they are of any concern.

Sounds good. It's probably a good idea to get an examination if the spots don't go away. Perhaps mention it to your PCP and see what they advise?

I still really think it's important not to get stuck just talking about another crisis and avoiding a conversation about how to better prevent them in the future. I'm actually pretty uncomfortable with how you just ignored that suggestion, especially since I think avoiding that is going to assure you keep winding up in this kind of spot, which I assume you don't want.

But I also think you can trust your healthcare provider and what she said here.
