Made a mistake! I lied to GUM clinic about when I last had sex! What do I do now?

Posted , 2 users are following.

I told them I had sex 4 weeks ago but I only had sex 1 week ago! I only lied because I wanted to be tested & not be turned away!

I got tested for gonorrhea & chlamydia. I want to get tested for everything in a few weeks to be 100% what can I say to them?? (Please do t say you shouldn't have lied, I know that)

Thank you

    I don't see the problem. I think you did what you had to to get tested. I don't think at this stage an HIV test would be accurate. The other tests should be fine. Why feel bad about it. I don't know what country you are in, but in the USA we can go see a doctor and voice our concerns at any time. There shouldn't be a waiting period for this. I don't understand what difference it makes as to one week ago to 4 weeks. So don't feel bad.

      Thank you for understanding smile they say there's a window period for the STI to show up in your system or something!

      If I go back in a few weeks are they going to test me again tho?

      Well, I don't know. If you need to lie again, but it just keeps getting worse the more you have to lie. I would be honest and tell them why you did this.In the future try to use protection for STD's it is the best way. That way you have little worry.
