    sorry if this is going to sound vulgar... but about a year ago i was seeing someone, and i was going to have sex with him. Anyways, so as we were getting down to business he didnt want to wear a condom and put his ermmm, bits shall we say? at the entrance of mine. I said that if we were going to have sex it would have to be with a condom, and he refused, so we didn't end up having sex.

    This is going to make me sound like a total retard, but it just kinda occurred to me now, that i should get a sexual health check? because even though nothing happened, there was skin to skin contact at the entrance? I haven't had any symptoms... i don't know if im worrying about nothing or whether to get checked just in case?? Any advice would be appreciated! thanks

    Definitely go and get checked, just in case. Better to find out if there's something wrong now when you can get it all cleared up, than after you've had another partner.

    The tests will be simple - the chlamydia one is just a swab that you can take off to the loos and do yourself. Tests for other things can't be done by yourself, so a doctor will need to have a look at you (which seems embarrassing, but it really isn't! They look at vaginas all day, nothing could shock them ), visually check for any signs of STIs, take some swabs from near your cervix, and that's it! The results should be through in a couple of weeks, although they'll usually be able to tell you straight away if they think you've got something or are clean. They'll also do a blood test if you want to get checked for HIV too.

    Also, kudos to you for refusing to have sex without a condom!

    Your local hospital should have a sexual health clinic somewhere. Google "sexual health clinic" and your postcode, and there should be a few in the area
    They'll be completely free - all birth control and STD tests/treatments are free.
