Hi,there On saturday 5th dec 2015, i was pretty drunk and apparently i received a fellation from a girl.I talked to her about it and she said i ad a condom on,however i dont remember having one on and she also told me that she doesn't have anything but her friends told me she's got some sort of sti but i dnt know what.I have been reading through the symptoms on your website and nothing of that sort has happened.But i noticed a decrease in my want for sex (my pennis doesnt rise that often anymore). On the internet it says even though a condom was used body fluids can also cause stds, i have had sex like 4 times before that but nothing like that happened.I dont know if am stressing too much or if something is actually wrong.Can i just go into one of the sti testing clinics and get tested.I also read that it was annonymous thatis they dont ask for care cards snd its free. ould you pleaseadvise me im only 18.....

Hi

Condoms will offer good protection against STI when having oral sex. Some STI can still pass with condom use in certain situations. For example if the person had a cold sore (herpes) on their lip and they had contact to an area not covered by the condom while performing oral sex.

Have a look at our “Know your chances” web page, it provides information on your chances of getting or passing an STI depending on how you are having sex.

A decrease in your libido (desire to have sex) is not a symptom of an STI, but it is common for this to happen when someone is stressed.

As this has been worrying you I would recommend going for an STI test.

You can get free STI testing at our Provincial STI clinic in Vancouver or any public health unit. You don’t need to show ID at these places either. All information is private and will not be shared with your doctor, but if you prefer to use a different name just make sure you write it down so you can get your results.

It can take a bit of time for an STI to show up on a test after it has passed to someone, this is called the “window period”. For STI testing accuracy we recommend that people wait 2 weeks after having sex before coming in for a test, if they have no STI symptoms. If someone had STI symptoms for example painful urination (pee), discharge from penis, sores on genitals etc… you should come in straight away.

Provincial STI clinic in Vancouver:

If you’re not in Vancouver have a look at our clinic finder for a public health unit in your area.
