WOOOOOHOOOOO!!!!!!!

Question

Hi Dr. Bob

I just wanted to let you know I had an HIV Test done 2 weeks ago and just got the results and they were all normal!!!!!!!(6 months after exposure) Unprotected oral and protected vaginal. WOOOHOOO!!!!!! Thank you for keeping me sane through my worried time, I've learned a big lesson and will never have sex with anyone again untl I know them and trust them completely.

Also I am being treated for possible prostatitis, I'm on 21 days of antibiotics (cipro), how long will it take for the pain in my penis to go away? I've been on the antibiotics for a week and a bit now but I still have some pain in my penis.

Thanks for all your help

Scott

Answer

Hi Scott,

Congratulations! And WOO-HOO!

I am a bit concerned about the lesson you learned. Knowing and trusting are all fine and good, but only a latex condom will keep you safe and well.

The discomfort in your Mr. Happy may persist for a bit longer, but 21 days of Cipro should take care of your prostatitis. Follow-up with your doctor if the discomfort persists after you've completed your Cipro.

Stay safe (condoms!). Stay well.

Dr. Bob
