STD – This is how you get tested

DSC_3160

(Svenska) It’s important that you get tested for STD on a regular basis! In Sweden its for free and you don’t pay anything. In most cases you make your reservations via a homepage. In my case “Centrum för sexuell hälsa” in Malmö. If you have symptoms, you should call for faster service.

i didn’t have HIV, and we went on with the rest of the tests.

I wanted to know my resistance to hepatitis. I also wanted to get tested for syphilis, and that is made by blood sample.

The last tests for chlamydia and gonorrhea is made from urine sample, saliva and rectum sample. I got two test tubes and small plastic cup and went to the loo.

The sound is bad and it is in swedish. But I don’t say much and it is all about the final urine and rectum test. I test myself often and hope for your sake that you do too. It’s allways better to know. 😉

It take up to 10 days for the results, and I didnät hav anything this time 😛
