Question: unprotected sex witha very promiscuous girl a month ago

no past diagnoses
no surgery
Take ritalin occassionally


I had unprotected sex witha very promiscuous girl about a month ago; nothing happened, no signs of anything on my penis or anywhere else. A week ago I once again had unprotected sex with this girl. So far no signs of anything either. Can I rest a little easier? I plan to wait about a month to get a full std screening (if nothing shows up before that of course) do you think its a good idea? I'm particularly worried about hepes; I'm pretty freaked out about the whole thing.

Thank you

User avatar Hi Lewis10,

Unfortunately, no symptoms does not rule out STD's. It is common for STD's to be assymptomatic in men. If she is assymptomatic it is a little less likely there is an STD; however, some women are also assymptomatic.

The best thing for you to do is to be tested to make sure.

Best wishes.
