In my school, I had a presentation about STDs and the serious effects of them and how to prevent them. The presenter said that condoms do not guarantee 100% protection from STDs, is that true? Also should I get tested for STDs before becoming sexually active?

About a year ago i starting getting very back acne, from then and until now ive had a slight picking problem, but about 4 months ago i started picking at what i though was acne but were the genital sweat glands. When recently picked at they bleed, and when they stop bleeding its about 1/4th Centimeter open mark, ( can vary ), and a very little amount around the injury is swolen, over time they heal, though sometimes the sweat gland or hair folicle doesnt heal correctly, and heals over with a whitish tint, should i be worried that it could be an STD i got from school maybe via restroom?. ( I am a male and just had sex about a month ago, under the age of 21, though she did not gain anything like i have... Im worried that I will get bullied if someone finds out, and is too embarassed to go to the doctors or tell a guardian. Please if any of you friendly doctors can help me, please help. ) - An anonymous Teen.

I have bumps on my penis and base of the penis that appear to be ingrown hairs and a friend in med school thought it was the same thing. I am sexually active and but have no history of stds. Could it just be ingrown hairs from the pressure of having sex. Is there something else that this could be? I used to get pimples on my neck when I was stressed out and this month has definitley been stressful.

Please suggest that i need to take any other test for sure or even blood cell count results is enough to confirmed that i am safe?
