Gyno Didn't Change Gloves

Jun 18, 2014

Just got back from a gyno appointment. She put on gloves, examined my genital area, then rifled around in some cabinets, went outside, and came back a minute later with whatever it was she was looking for. She then proceeded to give me a pelvic exam with those same gloves. I'm paranoid that she has given me some kind of STI or STD through contamination of the gloves. Is that possible? What should I do?

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there,

You were not at risk for any STD in this situation.

In health,
