I've had unprotected sex twice in the last month with 2 girls.

This answer was rated:

I've had unprotected sex twice in the last month with 2 girls. One girl I was in a long term relationship with. The other, a one night stand (complete mistake). I was wondering if I should get a Sti test?
FYI - I'm currently taking Penicillin for Laryngitis.
Hi and thanks for the query.If you do not have any symptoms of an STD like discharge per urethra, burning in urination, increased frequency of urination, sores on the genitals, fever etc. then there is really no need to get an STD test. However, if you want to get it done for your own piece of mind then it is your call.Hope this helps.Please do leave a positive rating for the service.Best wishes.

Thank you Dr Uzair.The only thing above I have is the fever, but I think that may be down to the Laryngitis.With me being on Penicillin, would that treat any STDs if I did have any, and the symptoms were not present?
Hi and thanks for replying.Yes, the fever is most likely a symptom of the laryngitis. Fever is never present in isolation with an STD, there are always more symptoms as well. And yes, penicillin does work for many of the common STDs as well.Please leave a positive rating for the service.Best.
