    Which males have had the tests for STI's?

    Which guys out there have had the test for a STI?

    I was chatting to my mate about it today and he said that for the test for chlamydia it involved a rather painful "scrape" type swob and that he wouldnt get it again

    I was sure that they could test for 99% off STI's by urine. He rather put me off ever getting tested for it!!!!

    Anybody wana confirm the test

    It's painful yeah but I've had it done 3 times cause I'm a real man, had the HIV test too once, which you have to ask for.

    Last time I went my man hood went down to the size of a walnut, said to the lovely looking nurse, "it's not usually this small" lol

    If you want to have kids though or have unprotected sex again with a future partner go get it done

    I have had it, they stick a swab down your "Jap-eye" but it doesn't hurt, just uncomfortable.

    yes, It hurts .....more the though of , youre gonna put that cocktail stick with a cotton bud on it ......where again ???????????????




    Its worth it obviously ....just makes you walk like john wayne and wince at people whove not yet been and hurts when you pee within 1/2 an hour ....but again ...if it prevents you being infertile . its worth it .....I would do it again ....had i been single and been about . just to be on the safe side ......

    Depends where you go.

    GUM will be very thorough and take a swab (not a scrape).....some over exaggerating there methinks

    Can have it done by urine test also, not quite as reliable

    PS have not been tested and am not male

    But GUM is the only place where you can have everything done, all under one roof......not just Chlamydia

    Exactly also thats a lot prefereable to some of the diseases you can catch. If your in long term relationship and wanna ride bare back very sensible for both partners to get checked out first

    It's urine test and swob, I don't think they will bother with you if you only have one. After all it's the NHS, they are testing you to make sure you are healthy and not going to cost them a bomb when you start dying or can't have kids.

    Ask for the blood test as well though, might as well it's just a simple blood test.

    In some ways i understand you but i was trying to let people know that such tests are quite simple and very straight forward and is such situations it's more about the state of mind that blokes have in so far as they are quite shy and silly about such things. And in what way would you say it's not comparable as i have to stick it down the same area

    Never had a "Tramp Stamp", and won't be having a baby anytime soon.

    It didn't hurt, it was the thought of it that was the worst part.

    Everyones pain threshold is different, what may feel like a slight discomfort to some, may hurt like hell to others.
    Gents..........if you havent had the test and its available to you, please get it done. :thumbsup:

    the saints right getting tested does not hurt, I had a piercing in my &^*% at the time so they brought other people in to have a look. Try getting a test with a room full of people armed with clipboards yiks. Oh the piercing was real pain

    What they said :thumbsup:

    I got tested, It stings a little, Best be safe than sorry with all the std's around.

    I suppose it could hurt more if you're manhoods below average unless they use different swobs for different sizes.

    The nurse who I seen was well fit, I was praying not to get a stiffy, I was embarrassed enough...!!!

    Luckily I remained relaxed...!!!

    I agree, I find it better to watch them do it as well, I think it only hurts if your tense.

    Last time I went the doctor woman grabbed the base of my ***** and yanked it really hard towards her, I've never been in so much pain in my life! "oh sorry" she said, reckon she did it on purpose to teach me a lesson for having unprotected sex.

    Quite right, down same 'ole but there is a huge difference. A catheter goes inside your bladder, a good few inches further than a swab. :w00t:

    A catheter is far more invasive and more complicated and in young fit men, would only be done if you were rushed in seriously ill e.g intensive care.

    Perfectly normal to be embarrassed getting a swab but just think what women have done on a regular basis getting a cervical smear. Not for the same reasons but not pleasant either:whistling:

    No tests done here, but i watched a docs programme a week or so ago and they were showing it, just a swab, uncomfortable but not that painful apparently!

    No its a slim cotton bud. One on the outside and one further in.

    It's a massive harpoon... That's the only way it could have looked so HUGE against my gentalia...

    And it hurt me more than any tattoo or piercing i've ever had, mind you the nurse was going at it like a sink plunger... thought it was going appear out my a**e at one point...
