    So lately I have been extremely paranoid for good reasons about STD's, and I think I should really go get checked out. I have never done this before and dont wanna ask anyone I know personally. I live in a big city but dont know what kind of clinic or where I would go to do this. What about getting like an 'inspection', what kind of doctor would do that for aguy? Are the test results given to you at the clinic or mailed or what? How much does it cost?

    Clinics would be anonymous. I'm sure they are setup for confidentiality on results.

    All cities have a free clinic. Look at the county hospital websites. Also the State department of public health. There should be a general info line for the county in the phone book.

    Planned Parenthood, university health centers, or the state health department clinics, all do free/low cost and confidential STD testing. Anything you say to a doctor and any test results are absolutely confidential. When I had an HIV test done it was done for free at the local health department office. Look in the blue section of the yellow pages, or look online. Good luck!

    Most cities have clinics set up & run by your local Health Dept . They are low cost or even free & totally anonamouse . Go get checked out , even if you do have something (which I dearly hope you dont) knowing is 100% better than not knowing & worrying about it constantly . That'd drive me nuts >:\
