Jane did you get my Question about STD'S
smjpain posted:
Hi Jane I know you just responded to my question but I forgot to ask since he did ejaculate inside me this time should I get tested and why did it burn so bad to the point I had to go take a shower. I go to my GYN on wed. Why am I still so red and swollen and there is a strong fishy odor plus a little blood still what is going on with me also it wasn't very fun either it hurt very bad.Thanks for your Reply!
Jane Harrison Hohner, RN, RNP responded:
Dear smjpain: It seems like you have had one or two complete STD screenings (including cultures) after being with your boyfriend. Unless he has other lovers, those screenings should still be accurate. But your own GYN can help you with that decision to re-screen.

It's hard to know if the burning was related to the actual ejaculate (some women are sensitive to the proteins from the prostate-produced fluid)--or whether it was the chronic, super inflamed vaginal/vulvar tissues. Given the uncomfortable outcome you could consider condom use (STD insurance and protection from ejaculate proteins)--or even non-penetrative sex. Sometimes "pelvic rest" (no intercourse) can allow for tissue healing. Even the BV smell worsens in the presence of the alkaline pH of ejaculate.
