if it's sti's then you just should. what's worse than knowing you have a problem is not knowing about it and still having it. gah
It ain't pretty but you'll feel better for it afterwards (if you're clean, that is).
use that as motivation to get the test and hopefully put it behind you.
I recently had to wait a week for tests on a lump. It was the worst week of my life.
might feel weird to just walk in to the doc's and say so.
They get asked all the time. They won't bat an eyelid.
It won't be the slightest bit odd for anyone in the medical profession to hear it
i will also need to tell the girl that (maybe) gave it me. how rubbish.
could be going to a Family Planning Clinic saying that you're partner is thinking of going on the pill and you wanna be tested first to make sure.
They will then refer you to the hospital/clinic for all the major tests.
Nothing to be ashamed of in making sure that you're healthy and not passing it on.
It was pretty freaky as its horrible waiting for results but it was all clear.
its their job and they will put you at ease as its their job. Still a bit embarrassing of course but just go get it done, the sooner the better!
No appointment needed.
I won't lie to you, it wasn't terribly pleasant but it was better than the alternative by a long stretch. Do it.
now how to tactfully tell the girl....?
in the event that results are bad of course
and fingers crossed they ain't. Will be really tough but you just need to get on with it.
Hope it all works out well for you!
i guess it would be fair enough, nowhere else i could have got 'em.
You may just have an NSU which essentially means you have an infection in your penis but the cause isn't an STI so it's not actually doing anything more than giving you some discomfort. You could have got that from using a different soap but it could just be your girlfriend has a touch of cystitis and it's reacted badly with your willy.
Or you may have a big bad disease. Yes.
Hopefully, they'll just give you some cream and you'll be sorted in no time.
At least... that's what my mate said, innit.
Don't do it out of a curiosity to kill time and get a free cup of tea.
Yes, you get reassurance.
But no tea.
