Gonorrhea

Hello. My question may sound naive but makes me anxious. It is about std's. I got into an unwanted situation with guys I did not know. To keep it short, there were seconds of kissing and my penis was taken into someone's mouth also for a second or two. It was that short because I said it was unwanted and after all this I managed to leave. It wasn't really sexual act, I would consider 'only' physical contact... Is there a realistic risk that I may be infected? if yes which disease can be spread this easy? And after how many days should I have a test for it? Certainly I do know that I can be 100% sure if I get tested, sure, but I'd like to know if there is a real risk for me.. Thank you very much...

I someone's mouth is infected wth gonorrhea or chlamydia or herpes  it can be spread through oral contact to the penis. 

If you are concerned or if you develop any symptoms such as burning, pain, or sores, you should see your health care provider to be tested or you can schedule an appointment at Corner Health Center. 

I want to start having sex, with a guy I just met. I don't know him very well. What are the question I should ask him and what steps should I take to not get pregnant?

Before starting a sexual relationship with a new partner, it is smart to ask to see their recent test results for sexually transmitted infections. The most common infections we see at Corner are gonorrhea and chlamydia, and can be run through a simple urine test.

To avoid pregnancy, we recommend chosing a reliable method of birth control and also using condoms for STI protection.  The Corner offers several long acting, reversable contraception options including Nexplanon (the implant that goes in your arm) and IUD's. 

If you have more questions or concerns you and your new partner can come in to Corner and we can talk more about your options.
