  • So, who here has never had a sexual health screening?
  • …and I don’t mean that time you watched Basic Instinct when you were 12 and discovered that your spam javelin definitely worked.

    We were discussing this at work earlier as a load of NHS types were hot-desking in our office. Turns out that a good 80% or so of my colleagues never had. Is this representative at all or do I just work with a bunch of maverick wildcards who play by their own rules?

    Better not get banned for this, probably will.

    if they only have sex with themselves, or over a computer screen there really is no need as computer viruses cant infect humans.

    Not me, regularly checked at least once a year.

    People shouldn’t be afraid/ashamed/embarrassed about it. It doesn’t hurt, it’s not awkward and if you get a good nurse it can be a laugh

    Edit

    The nurses at the clinic picked up a prostate infection I had (not an sti) that Drs missed

    Never gave it a thought TBH.

    yep when I was a bad dirty boy I used to go on a regular basis. HIV scare kinda makes you very sensible about such things

    I used to get them fairly regularly before I settled down..

    I remember my first very clearly.. after filling in the questionnaire about any risks that I may have exposed myself to, I was handed my results by an exasperated nurse with these kind words..

    ‘somehow, and I have no idea how, but somehow you have a clean bill of health’

    Nope. I’m just a maverick wildcard who plays by my own rules.

    Never considered it when I was playing around, been married for a long time now.

    Although the more time I spend here the more I realise the huge differences between the way different people assess risk.

    No, Can’t say I have. Maybe I should.

    I went out with a girl who wanted me to have one. It was post uni and even though I had no symptoms I went along with it as it wasn’t the worst idea ever.

    I got the results by text and was a bit disappointed when I changed phones as a “100% disease free” message from the NHS could raise a chuckle at the right moment.

    I’ve been twice, after coming back from travelling. Pissing needles for a month in Thailand after the four months on the Gold Coast in Australia.

    Then after 4 weeks in Plymouth working.

    Now try and go every year.

    Yes, about 10 years ago. Not as glum an experience as I expected actually. Worst bit was having to ‘summon’ my missus for an appointment so she could get checked out. To say I was in the dog house for a couple of weeks is an understatement.

    Sharing desks…it’s corpo-speak for insufficient office furniture.

    my cock, my balls, my asshole and everything inbetween is as pure as the driven snow. That’s kind of boring right? I’ve not had a check though.

    I have, when asked to be an IVF donor for a friend. Came back clear, which was no surprise to me. Only went out with good girls, see.
    Well, at least one said, “mummy told me to always be good; was I?”
    Boom, tish!

    That swob thing they poke up your cockerel, they don’t actually have to do that. Other countries just take blood and urine. I think it’s cos were Brits.

    I went with my gf a couple of years ago. My little fella clearly knew what was happening as he was shrivelled up like it was -20. Cue me having to stretch him out to a more regular size in front of the nurse so I could open up for the swab. She then proceeded to to jab me with it in a ‘shut up and deal with it’ kind of way, clearly getting the angle wrong and causing sharp discomfort. Hurt to pee for a couple of days.

    Got the all clear. Worth it for peace of mind.

    The last time I had any kind of check up for anything from the doctors was in 1994 when I had induced arthritis for a couple of months. I assume that I’ve been forgotten about.

    I don’t think your brave and macho attitude is appropriate in this case is it..?
