Everytime I have sex I end up getting sick. What's going on?

Posted , 3 users are following.

The first time I had sex, it was around November 2014. My partner used condoms so we would be safe. I came on my period the day after having sex. After I got off my period, I noticed that I was having abnormal discharge. I went to the doctor to be tested for STDs and everything came back negative and I was sent home. I was still experiencing discharge so I returned to the doctor a week later and I was diagnosed with bacterial vaginosis and a yeast infection. I was prescribed medication for both of these conditions and I got better.

The second time I had sex was around Feburary 2015. Comdoms were used this time as well. After having sex, a few days later I was experiencing a slight burning sensation when I would urinate. It almost felt as if I had an UTI. I also had spotted tonsils that were red. It looked like I had tonsilitis. I went to the doctor about this and my UTI test came back as negative. I was prescribed a medication for my condition. The medication helped my throat, but it did not fully cure the burning and heavy sensation while uriniating. I decided to go to the doctor again a week later because my symptoms had gotten slightly worse. My lympnodes were swollen in my neck and I was begining to think I had a STD. I went to the doctor to be tested for STDs and my doctor prescribed me medication just in case I came back positive for gonorrhea. My STD test came back negative and the medication cleared me of my symptoms.

The last time I had sex was in April of 2015. As usual my partner and I used condoms. A few days after having intercourse, I stared to develop tonsilitis and I was suspecting some abnormal discharge. I went to the doctor to be tested for STDs and I was prescibed an antibiotic for my tonsilitis. My STD test came back negative, but the doctor said that I had Bacterial Vaginosis. I was prescribed medication for this as well and I eventaully got better.

I noticed that I did not start having problems with bacterial vaginosis until I started having sex. Each time I had sex, my partners did give me unprotected oral sex. I'm wondering if unprotected oral sex is contributing to the bacterial vaginosis? Also, I gave my last two partners oral, but they were wearing a condom while doing this. I don't understand why I always get tonsilits after having sex. Can someone please help me? This is really taking a toll on my sex life. I don't want to be on antibiotics after each time I have sexual intercourse.

    Ibeoukd recommend using non-latex condoms. The same thing happened to me and it was due to being allergic to the latex. However, w that said, it doesn't explain the throat situation and youentioned he had cold sores. When you got to the docs and request to be tested for everything, herpes is not included in the fill panel. If the sentence I want to be tested for herpes 1 & 2 doesn't come out of your mouth, they will not test you. Make sure you request IgG.

    i was just going to suggest the same, use non latex condoms as you may be allergic to them with out knowing... So give them a try, and also just go get tested for the herpes it may be nothing but just to be on the safe side aye smile 

    being diagnosed with bacteria vaginosis is bad is bad I think every girl will get it at least once in their life time... Are you using scented shower gels or soaps to wash your vagina? Because if you are that fights the good bacteria we have in our vaginas. Because that's what I was doing, I was never told by anyone that you couldn't use smelly stuff to was down there.... 

    Have a a read on this if you haven't already smile https://patient.info/health/bacterial-vaginosis-leaflet

    hope me this helps smile
