Hi, I have been feeling really funny lately down below I got my period last week but it only lasted 1 day. I have had chlamydia in the past so I am worried it might be back. I am just back from a holiday in where a man tried to have sex with me even though I refused! He managed to penetrate me one time then I got him off me. I am so worried and don't know how to tell my boyfriend. please help.

Hi there, thank you for posting your question on Ehealthforum. This is not intended as a substitute to visiting your own doctor.

It's difficult to know how to advise. But if only for your own peace of mind I think you are going to have to have an STD screen and a pregnancy test. In the meantime it would be as well if you boyfriend used condoms. You will be fine.

Dr Andrew Rynne.
