    I had unprotected sex almost two years ago now, and although he said he was a virgin, I'm still slightly worried. I've been with my boyfriend a year and a half now, and we've never had unprotected sex. I just don't want to put him at risk because I know you can catch many of them through oral sex, which we have done. I've got no symptoms whatsoever, but is there a chance that I could have an STD/STI? I went to my doctor today, and she didn't seem too worried but referred me to a clinic. Thank you for any help or advice.

    It would be worth getting tested just to ease your mind.  I'm sure you have nothing to worry about though?

    Kerryy,

     

    I know it has been a while since you posted, but I was wondering how you are doing.  Did you ever get the opportunity to see the referred doctor?  I am not a doctor and can't diagnose you, but I think you probably didn't have much to worry about.  There are STD's that can develop symptoms after that length of time, but it is not common.  (HPV is one, for example.)  The visit to the doctor will have hopefully given you some peace from worrying.

     

    Please consider returning to the community to let us know how things are going.  I'm sure your experience could be a great help to others!

     

    Best of luck,

    James
