    ok basically i have been penetrated without protection and my bf has had unprotected sex in the past with a female. I like to think I trust my bf but it would be even better if I actually had a doctors certificate saying he was healthy. I don't want to die and I do want children one day.

    Just slow down a bit dont be so paranoid hun...take a deep breath your be ok...look the chances you caught something is slim and your proberlly fine..just go get checked out just incase you did get one.. as for what happens if u have got one im unsure your doc will guide you through it...

    Good luck and god bless ya

    go get checked out at the clinic. i went to the sexual health department in a hospital via my doctors so perhaps others could tell you where to go..like brooke or something.

    its painless with relatively little discomfort. its quite funny actually..i had to sit on this chair really high up inline with the docs head and my feet in stirrups.. anyway..all they do is take swabs and then you can have a blood test for syphillis etc. the results either take 1 or 2 weeks..can't remember.

    fortunately i got the all-clear but its better to be safe than sorry!

    Sorry i know this is serious, but the way you worded that really made me laugh. You made it sound so clinical!

    Hey there
    We've got tons of info right here on TheSite that will help you outthe sex info section has heaps of useful features.

    Why don't you and your boyfriend both go to the GUM clinic (or your GP) together - you can get tested for all the STIs at the same time and put both your minds at rest so you can enjoy having sex from then on.

    This feature will let you know what to expect when you go to the clinic.

    Finally, for confidential, reliable advice try either of the following:

    Brook Advisory Centres
    Advice, counselling and medical help around contraception, pregnancy, abortion and sexual health.
    Telephone: 0800 0185023

    Family Planning Association
    Information service on family planning and all aspects of sexual health.
    Helpline: 0845 3101334
