Two weeks ago I had a sexual experience with another man, my first and only not that that matters, and we engaged in unprotected oral sex, and I allowed him to penetrate me anally while wearing a condom.
Today, I went to the county health deparment and the nurse practicioner didn't see anything she considered even suspicious for STDs on my genitals or lips. They also had me provide a urine sample to test for gonorehea and chlamydia. Lastly, the drew blood to test for syphilis specifically an FTA-ABS. I'm supposed to get the results in two or three days.
Can anyone help regarding whether I should feel relieved and leave this matter alone or should I retest in a few weeks. Also, I know I need to test for HIV in another ten weeks.
