I posted on another board and the response was disheartening and not at all helpful.

Hi again! Ok, deep breath. I know its natural to worry about these things and analyze to death. I do it too! Take a step back and breath. I have certainly had my fair share of unprotected sex. Stupid, yep. I was lucky and only got HPV which was removed and Ive been fine ever since. HPV isnt protected by condoms so I would have gotten it anyway. Most STDs can be cured pretty easily. Really, try not to worry. It will be what it will be. Just use this as a lesson going forward. Before you have unprotected sex again, make sure he gets a battery of tests as well. If he is a good guy, he wont mind at all!

Come back and let me know how your appointment goes. Have you decided what you are going to do about the IUD?
