Question
Posted by: Disgusting | 2010/03/30

I am disgusting

Long story short
I had unprotected sex with 4 different males in in the space of about 18 hours.
How long before symptoms of a STD should appear?
When do I go see a doc?
This happened about 2.5 weeks ago.
When should I go see a doc?
What kind of symptoms should I be looking out for?
I feel ''fine'' physically (NOT morally of course)
I don''t want to have sex with ANYONE else and risk infecting them with ANYTHING. How long before I can be sure that IU''m clear. (NOT that I deserve to be, i know)
I''m asking because I need advise.
I am disgusted at myself and sincerely embarassed.
Any medical advise please?

Go see your GP immediately and go to a NEW Start centre.
Please take care in future not to be wreckless and use condoms, especially if you going to drink alcohol.

You need to go to your GP &  get tested and on ARV''s immediately. I don''t judge, you had your reasons.

Egg, so if you want a " pure"  woman, does that mean you are pure yourself? What''s good for the goose is good for the gander, you know. And if you''re so hung up on " purity, what on earth are you doing on a sexual health website? That''s not " pure"  at all. Shame on you, you''re casting the first stone here!

We are not here to judge you, however you should go see a doctor asap. Also go get tested for HIV immediately. Dont leave it for too long as there may be treatment available if you have picked up something.

I''m sorry you feel bad about yourself and hope you have not picked up anything nasty. Have you done this before and what were the circumstrances. I know I am being nosey but its not something one encounters on a day to day basis. 4 guys in 18 hours, wow, what prompted you to do it ? I don''t know what to suggst, but perhaps a visit to your GP would help ? Good luck.
