STD - very scared!!!
My bf told me over the weekend that his ex gf gave him an STD. and yet he said that he took medicatrion to clear it. and he said he never suffered from it again.
I did some research and from what he described - it looks like he had Chlamydia. now i am worried that i might get it. i have not shown any symptoms but i am still worried that i might have it.
When i met him, i was stupid enough to be under the impression that he was sort of clean and he never mentioned it to me that he had previously had an STD. Should i go for a test? What other tests should i go for?

I would suggets you do what is called a STD screening laboratory range of tests and then should you wish a HIV as well.

Chlamydia is tested on Urine - the test is called a PCR test.
