    Quick question I have a routine GUM clinic appointment on Tuesday but the OH is here Monday night, is it ok going for a check up if you've had sex within the last 24 hours, as I know its not really advised when you go for a smear.

    anyone know?

    I'm sure that it will be fine occhiverdi, I can't see how it would affect any test results x

    I hate it at clinics when you feel like the person who you see is looking down on you in some way

    Yeah nothing there. I'll go and act dumb.... if they make me go back they make me go back. I'll probably get a lecture on only using the pill as protection with my OH too.... can you tell I'm looking forward to it!

    When I saw the GUM clinic the women was nothing but helpful and lovely. No lectures, just plain old good advice. I shouldn't worry - and if they *do* make you feel uncomfortable, consider complaining.

    I don't either but if I was a doc I'd rather not go poking people in old cum, perhaps that's why they tell you not too!

    If he makes you then you don't ever let him cum near you again.

    It's ok to have sex within 24 hours of a smear test unless you're using spermicide, barrier methods of contraception (condoms or diaphragm), or jelly lubricants ... there are chemicals in these that can interfere with the test

    So my theory that docs just don't want to wade through old cum is true?

    Hahahaha then they would be encouraging barrier methods not suggesting you don't use them!

    Medical folks just generally don't get that squeemish really. I've seen smears with sperm on, it's not that much of a problem - it's easier to see what's going on if there aren't any though.

    occhiverdi I'd probably just avoid PIV sex for one night to be safe. You only have smears every couple of years so it's not too harsh to miss one night of PIV for it ... plenty of other stuff you could do like oral!!!

    I think the sooner you go the better, i've been there twice and i'm a lad..even had an aids test to once cuz i was scared..didn't like the blood coming out of me for that aids test ¬_¬ i use protection all the time but i just get a lil scared after cuz i've only had sex a few times me. But now in future I'm going to book an appointment if I need to, waiting takes way to long and it makes me feel like an idiot, but it makes me feel good knowing i'm clean.

    I've never been to a GUM clinic, is there any reason i would need to go?

    aside from an STI test because i've only ever been with my partner so no chance of catching anything =/

    VW x

    Good to have routine check ups even if you've only ever been with the one partner and him with only you.

    Certain STIs don't have to be sexually transmitted. It's always good for piece of mind to have routine check ups.

    I tend to have one text per year at least even though I've only ever been with WandA and him only with me. It's just a good habit to get into...like getting your teeth or eyes checked!
