Hi and welcome to the forum! I am glad that I can help you.

You want to know what doctors recommend to men who had unprotected intercourse.

Unprotected sexual intercourse is a way of possible transmission of sexually transmitted disease (STD) such as gonorrhea, syphilis, chlamydia, hepatitis B, C or D virus, HIV, etc. These bacteria may cause infertility such as in cases of gonorrhea and chlamydia. Syphilis may cause damage to the nervous system over a long period of time. The hepatitis B, C or D virus can cause hepatitis which in some cases may be severe and fulminant (fast and fatal). HIV can cause weakening of the immune system and individuals start to experience opportunistic infections and certain kinds of cancer. If men experience symptoms such as itching in the genital area, colored discharge at the end of urination or a frequent need to urinate, they should be tested for STDs such as gonorrhea or chlamydia. If painful ulcers with solid edges appear on the penis, they sould see a dermatovenerologist to exclude syphilis.
