Protected Sex With Prostitute,Scared of STDS!

Nov 10, 2003

Hi Dr.Bob.I recently attended a bachelor party where I got very drunk and against my better judgement had sex with a hooker.Of course I used a latex condom,but still I'm petrified I may have caught something! Especially since 2 days later I have soreness in my inner thigh area.Not my balls or penis,just thighs.Is that a precursor to an STD? What if anything am I at risk for? The condom stayed on the whole time.I've also heard that prostitutes are carrying a degenerative muscle disease these days,have you heard of this? Please respond A.S.A.P. as everyday my stress level increases to the point of not being able to function at work.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Prostitutes are carrying a degenerative muscle disease??? Where did you read that? The Sunday church bulletin?

A properly used latex condom will prevent the vast majority of STD's. Sore inner thighs are not a symptom or precursor to any STD. Maybe you strained a muscle while thrusting or playing naked twister with the call girl? Or maybe the hooker was a big-boned full-figured gal (or guy) who bounced on your thighs a bit too vigorously? In any case, STD screening is readily available at any physician's office or neighborhood clinic. Why stress when help is so readily available? Do I think you have anything to stress about? No, not really. But, I can't really examine you over the Internet either. So, if you continue to be worried or develop new symptoms, go get checked out! It really is that simple.

Stay well.

Dr. Bob
