STD test next week please help

Posted , 4 users are following.

Dear all,

I had two encounters in the last two weeks, again a stupid mistake and hopefully I will learn this time. 10 days ago I had protected oral sex from a sex worker and we had intercourse for around 5 minutes with a condom. I still had the condom on as I didn't ejaculate and still have it with me. No holes. I was intoxicated but I remember the details 

Another time 3 days ago with another sex worker I received oral sex but now I'm extremely worried. I feel a little sore down maybe it's due to the oral sex pressure but will doing a full test Monday give me the necessary or will it be a waste of money as full tests do not come cheap. Would I get accurate results? I'm very worried

    Could just be an STI and not an STD. Some antibiotics should be able to clear you right up tho.. Other than being sore do you notice any skin abraisions or a rash? Urination feel different? More detail will allow a better understanding if you may or may not have contracted an STD.

      Thank you very much for your reply. For now nothing no rash or different urination. However one encounter was around 10'days ago and the other was three days ago. 

      Would doing the test Monday be a good idea or will it not determine much?

    It's not clear if you were using a condom with both encounters, but if you were, there's almost no chance you could have picked up an STI.  Even if you had oral sex without a condom, it's highly unlikely you'd have picked up an STI.  Depending on where you were, it's usually safer to have sex with a sex worker than someone you meet in a bar btw, since sex workers are usually very health-conscious and tested regularly.

    Personally, I wouldn't get tested in your position, but I wouldn't try to talk you out of it.  You could either see your GP, or if you're in the UK, you could go to a genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinic - google "GUM clinic near me" for details.

    If you do see a doctor, then if you could update this thread and tell us what the doctors say, it would be appreciated.  Good luck.
