how soon can I be tested??? NOT A PREGNANCY QUESTION!!!!!!!!

I had sex with my soon to be ex husband Sat. morning (it was unexpected- just happened), unprotected and he ejaculated inside me. ( I have an IUD) so pregnancy is not a concern, maybe just other things.
I have had suspions hes been seein someone (since he told me he wanted to leave me) but I dont know if they are having sex or not (or if hes with her) and anyways now I really regret this mistake... what if she has something and caught it??? Its not likely but I duno, and I dont know know that I can trust him (or that he hasnt cheated on me before).
I am stupid for having sex with him- BASH AWAY, I know it and regret it... I just really need to know when I can be tested for anything he MIGHT have.

  • I know you can be tested for syphillis and gonearrhea (sp) very quickly. Not sure about HPV, herpes. HIV takes awhile.

  • I would call the doctor in the morning and ask, maybe they can see you tomorrow. Good luck :)

  • You can be tested for everything and anything. The only test that may need to be repeated would be the HIV one due to the antibodies in the bloodstream still growing. Don't wait until you think you may have then it may be harder to treat.

  • you can be tested right away but somethings after the first test they will say come back at 3 6 and 9 months just to make sure that nothing is there

  • Many health departments offer free HIV testing as well as other STD's in teh family planning department. Most people who contract HIV will develop antibodies at detectable levels 2-8 weeks after exposure; with the majority of cases being fully detectable within 3 months. To be safe, most practitioners advise you to text again at six months after potential exposure since in very rare cases it may take this long to show up. Other STD's will generally show up within a month. If you are super worried, beg HIM to be tested since more than likely he will already be detectable.

  • I agree with all but I wouldn't worry too much unless you start showing symptoms. It's true that it's possible to not have any symtoms but still be positive, however most likely symptoms would occur within a week of exposure.
