    Just go to a Dr. and get checked since it was unprotected and with someone you obviously dont know if their std free or not.

    Chapped lips and a dry mouth are not symptoms of an STD.

    Your body is not going to be dehydrated by drinking lots of water. Water hydrates much better than soda does. Chances are you just have a cold coming on... or something similar.
    There's nothing inherently dirty about sex, but if you try real hard and use your imagination you can overcome that.

    As seasons change many people experience dry nose/mouth. Saline drops or rinse helps the nose. For the lips, any lip balm can be helpful. You may be more aware because of the recent encounter.

    Sometimes our thoughts makes us worry. Sometimes when we think we have done something wrong ! We start thinking the worse, or I do I should say. I myself start thinking of all these things can go wrong and usually none of then even happen. I have even gone to the doctor before because I thought something had to be wrong. Just to have the doctor tell me..You worry to much and sometimes think to much.lol.
    She was right, I do. I just try and make sure what I do anymore isn't something that I will have to worry about.
    Make sure you know who you are with and if need be, go to the doctor, but don't just sit and make yourself sick from your own thoughts. Enjoy life and always try to do what is right.
