Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   Please proceed with your query.
Doctor :   Are you with me ?
User :   About a week ago, I was sexually active with someone who I had been with before, and as always, used a condom, however afterwards, I found out that when she was with her previous partner that she had unprotected sex and is not sure if he has any STDs
Doctor :   Ok
User :   She is getting an STD test today, and I am wondering if I should get one too.
Doctor :   Do you have any itching, rash, burning in the urine or pain in the testicles?
User :   No, neither one of us has symptoms
Doctor :   As you used a condom, it is unlikely, that you will have any infection.
User :   Ok. Thank you very much!
Doctor :   I suggest that you rest assured and in case she turns out to be positive
Doctor :   then you can think about a test and even then
