Even though this forum is also currently labeled "sexual conditions", it's really just std related. If you have something that isn't std related like erectile dysfunction, general sex issues ( masturbation, vaginitis, pregnancy risk etc ) or lack of sex drive - there are more appropriate forums specifically on those you'll get better answers at so it's best to post there.

when you post, it's helpful to tell us your gender, the last time you had sex and any testing you've had done so far.

it's easiest for us to help you if you just keep adding to your post instead of making multiple new posts. it's hard for us to hunt down prior posts on this new format webmd recently changed to plus it really uses up a lot of our time when we have to hunt for prior posts. It really does help us help you better

Also anonymous posting certainly has it's place, especially if you are a regular here on other exchanges and don't want the folks in your healthy eating exchange for instance to know that you had std concerns but if you are only posting on this forum, picking a name and using it is most helpful for us. Hard to keep track of who is anonymous3456 and who is anonymous3457 whereas we stand a better chance of remembering who cupcake93 is

also please keep in mind, everyone, including Terri , is volunteering their time here. Please be polite and patient and we try to do the same for you

thanks !

also if you are searching for prior posts on a particular topic and come across one that is 40 posts long, it's best to read it and then ask any questions you have in a new post. when posts get that long, they get really hard to follow and your concerns tend to get lost in the other posts

Talking about std testing is NORMAL and something we all should be doing EVERY TIME before we have sex with a new partner :)
