Stressed out!

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi there, so I'm stressing out in a big way as I had sex with a stranger last night and midway through the condom broke (but neither of us noticed). She said that she was clean but there is that thing at the back of my head chipping away and sending my anxiety in to overdrive! I'm planning to go to the sexual health clinic first thing tomorrow morning to get tested but I am freaking out at the moment! Am I just over reacting?

    Hi Troy,

    I don’t mean to increase your anxiety and make you worry more. You can surely visit the health clinic soon but lots off STDs will not show up the next day. You may go, come up clean and live happily ever after but. Recommend giving it more time.

    You’re worried about her being clean but also she may Be feeling the same about you. Think about the last time you got a full panel STD test completed since All don’t have symptoms.

    I understand you worries. I’m in a similar situation. I’m waiting for 16 weeks, half way there and at the same time I don’t even want to find out until I get intimate with someone. 

    But all the best mate!

    Hey Troy

    Thanks for the response, this was the first time since splitting from my wife (and we were both clean) so its given me a right scare! Oh well, I can only hope she was telling the truth. Hope things go well for you.

    It's a good idea to go to a clinic, they are professionals and make good decisions, but don't worry the chance of getting diseases are too low.

    Update,

    I had bloods taken but have to go back in a month to have another set done. The Doctor though my chances of catching something were going to be pretty low, the tests will find out for sure.
