| | STD test,experiences.POST Having first exam and test soon. Quite paranoid.
Im 18, I havent been sexually active in almost 2 years.
I am scheduled to have my first gynocological appointment at the end of this month, while I am there I am going to request to have a STD test and screening for HPV/HIV pretty much everything possible.
I know I am healthy and clean and have not contracted anything but I want an official test to tell me so.
I have had 4 sexual partners
always used a condom, except I was with partner #4 for 1 year, and he was a virgin (I was his first) and we had had unprotected sex 2 times. That was over 3 years ago, and any sexual experiences I had since was protected.
I know my risk for contracting anything are quite low considering Ive always protected myself, but I've read and seen stuff on television regarding things such as HPV that are through basic skin/to skin contact and it has frankly made me quite paranoid about the whole situation.
How long does it take to get results back for STD tests/and exams (through pap smear, blood, or urine) and how accurate are they usually?
Can someone please share their experiences regarding STD tests..etc.
It's good to be educated regarding STD's becaue tehre are so many now but it's made the whole idea of sex (in the future) a paranoid/un fun experience/idea. I know I dont have anything, but Im paranoid that I do or something wont come through accuartely, I dont know.
comment, experiences, help-thanx.
