    I was with my boyfriend for a year before we had sex. We were both virgins and had discussed sex before so it wasn't a spur of the moment thing. I then went on the pill so we stopped using condoms. We broke up six months ago which was hard but I got through it. However, I recently found out that he was sleeping with another two girls while we were together. This is bad enough, but one of the girls that he slept with openly sleeps around without protection. I am devastated. As it has been six months and no sign of STDs, I guess this eliminates stuff like genital warts and gonorrhea, but what about chlamydia?
    I have looked some stuff up online but I really want to hear from someone who has had chlamydia.. how do you get tested for it? and are the results discreet? I'm really scared

    You go to your GP or a GUM clinic and pee in a cup.

    Depending on the GUM clinic/GP, the results can take between a few hours and two weeks.

    If you're a university student, the chances are your University medical service or union provides an anonymous, text based service where you drop off your sample and they text you the results within 24 hours. Failing that visit a GP or sexual health clinic.

    The only way to know if you have this infection is to get tested- I'm sure you don't need telling this. It's quick and easy- it'll be worth getting a full screen from an STI clinic or the GP just to make sure. A full screen involves a vaginal swap, which can be a little uncomfortable when a speculum is used but it doesn't hurt. The worst thing is the blood test! Better to nip it in the bud if there is a problem.

    Personally I was more worried about HIV.

    Chlamydia is the red-headed step-son of STDs. For men anyway.
