View Full Version : What happens when you're tested for STIs?

So I have an appointment at Planned Parenthood next week to get birth control and testing for STIs. But I'm not sure what to expect. Is it a blood test? I might also be getting a Pap smear, my mom said. What exactly is that? I might get pregnancy tested but by next week I should have already taken my at home test. I guess I'm just nervous and need some reassurance it's not that bad. For the Pap smear, I'm very nervous about being seen by someone in a non-intimate setting - I'm a very private person and after some traumatizing events I hate even being touched without permission. I'm not even sure why they're putting me on BC already since I'm likely to be pregnant, but yeah.
