I received unprotected oral sex from a girl almost 4 weeks ago. She gave me oral sex for about a minute. I got scared about catching an STD and lost my erection (did not organism). I have no symptoms but am just scared that I got an STD. I have not had sex with my SO just in case I got something. How long should I wait before having a full STD testing session done? And when I go to my doctor, what should I ask him to test for (what was I at risk for when receiving unprotected oral sex for such a short period)?

Scared

Oral sex is low risk in general. It's up to you if you even feel the need for testing or not.

Chlamydia, hsv1, syphilis and gonorrhea are what you want tested for if you feel this was worth testing for. All are relatively low risk of transmission from oral sex but not no risk.

How long do I have to wait before taking these 4 tests? I've seen 12 weeks for HIV but looks like I don't need that. I don't have any symptoms yet which is a great relief but I just want to be sure about these 4.

Thanks
