Sexual health clinics in Phnom Penh?

Post by MidlandsExpat1 » Sun Mar 01, 2020 3:20 pm

Hi all,

Had an issue of a rubber splitting on me last night, and I'm panicky about the STI's etc. She wasn't a working girl, but seemed a bit ropey.

Does anyone know where the cheapest clinic is in Phnom Penh that offers PEP to stop HIV risk? Any open on a Sunday or in the evenings ideally.

Cheers!

I always use Calmette for STD checks - they aren’t cheap but seem to have a good reputation.

You probably want to worry more about something else emerging in 9 months surely?

Try Rihac, or just go to a large pharmacy and try your luck. Don't waste any money on tests at this time.

Do not go right away. most STI have an incubation period and you could well test negative if yo go to early. Idealyy you should wait unitl you have symptoms or a week at least, and retest after a month if it was negative. When you contract an infection or a virus it takes some time for it to reach the point where it can be detected. Depends on the individual STI and the testing method.

I'm not looking for tests as such, just a referral for the post-exposure prophylaxis tablets that I've read are fairly (not completely) reliable.

Probably panicking over nothing, but I'd sooner pay for them than 4 weeks of worry.

The prophylaxics are basically abig dose of various antibiotics to kill off the virus/bacteria before thye have multiplied enough to prestn a threat. Some also include retrovirals to try and eradictae aids, again before it can mulitply. the quaity of the medicine is dubious in Asia and in most cases they need to be taken within 24 hours to have full effect, and even then the outcome is dubious. You might protect yourself, you might not, but anyone you have sexula contact with will still be at risk, so you should still refrain from sexual activity and until you have tested clear after 2 weeks nd again after a month. BTW the prophylactics you are liley to get here will make you very sick as thye are massive doses of antibiotics

You should gouge Tiger Balm into your knob with a bottle top. I know a lot of people joke about Tiger Balm but the science behind it is solid. If you can poke enough Tiger Balm down your Jap's Eye this will prevent 75% of disease. Definitely worth trying with those kind of statistics.
