    How long until an STD test comes back? How quickly can I pass on an STD?

    I think I have a STD. I went for a test last week, and the results will be back on Wednesday. I was in a lot of abdominal pain and down below irritation today. I went to A&E, and now I'm on antibiotics. I'm scared now! If I have one, which it looks like I do, then my partner will find out pretty soon! I feel like such a fool, any advice? Will he definitly get it, too?

    I know it has been a while since you posted, but I hope you are doing well.  You don't mention a specific STD, so this question might be a bit difficult for people to answer.  I'm not a doctor and can't diagnose you over the internet, but most STD are easily passed on to a partner through sexual contact.  Many of them are transmitted in other ways, such as through saliva or cotnact with infected blood.  Of course, you may also simply have a yeast infection.  You could transmit that to your boyfriend in some ways (like a UTI), but you've already taken the right first steps in seeing a physician for an exam.


    Please do let us know how you are doing.  I'm sure your experience could be of great benefit to others on the site!


    Best of luck,

    Probably the right thing to do is to tell him. Otherwise, he may pass it on or treatment be delayed. Depending on what it is, he may not even realize he has it.

    I'm sure you know by now if you did contract an STD, and I hope it was not, but rather it was something easily identifiable and treatable by your doctor.


    If you had sexual relations with him, and you do have an STD, the chances of his catching it are pretty high.
