Author Topic: GUM Clinic Question  (Read 2763 times)

Offline iName

I know this will make me sound bad but I was watching The Only Way Is Essex yesterday  :cool:


Basically one of the guys went to a GUM clinic and was asked a few questions, I expected most like did you use a condom, did you receive oral without and if you had sex with a man etc... but one question surprised me, the doctor asked if he paid for sex. Do they really ask you this in real life and what's that got to do with anything?

I have been asked that and a question they often ask me is do i punt in Africa where AIDS among other nasties is rife. Its to get as much info as possible. If bothered just say no, i always say i punt but always give a false name etc. They couldnt care less and have heard it all believe me.

Recently popped to a GUM clinic and got tested - all ok.

Yep - they ask you all those sorts of questions. I was honest with them - and to myself.

You get a load of test done (depending on your answers - so answer honestly) - usually the results are done within a week or so. They only bother contacting you if there is a problem.

I was offered Hep B protection (3 injections over 6 months) - it's highly recommended for us guys (and the girls). So I recommend all on here who divulge in WGs etc to get themselves down to the GUM clinic - you don't want hep B!

Of course  :cool:

And I give an honest answer- yes.

In fact my local GUM clinic aknowingly has Escorts/prossies who come in for monthly check ups and free condoms etc.

I also got tired asking about safe sex with strangers on the Internet- so leveled with my Doctor that I was fucking Escorts and went into detail about what was or wasn't safe sex.

As for the Police what I am doing is legal but even if it wasn't the NHS wouldn't give my details iof that's what you're also worried about.

Chill.  :drinks:

Yes they do. They want as much information as possible to help preventing and understanding the transmission of STDs. In my experience they do not put any pressure on you to answer if you don't want to - its up to you and as smiths says you can use a false name if you want to. I give my real name and address. :)

Did that quite a few years ago, tom. When I did it it was over about 18 months to make sure it took - maybe technology has moved on now. Highly recommended :)

Yes they do ask.

I told the truth about paying for sex, but admit (to you guys) I didn't use my real name & address.

Another lie I told was that I was not going to continue seeing pro$$ies, but to be fair, I really did mean it 100% at the time    :(

Off topic but why would you want to stop seeing prossies?

Lol - I said exactly the same thing. Thought to myself, got to try harder with the wife... was with a prossie within 2 weeks! Bloody addicted!

Yep - technology has moved on - the clinic even said that they would text me (in an annonymous fashion) when my final jab was due. Think the protection lasts 10 years or so.

It lasts for the rest of your life, my friend :)

Any recommendations for a GUM clinic in central London please?

Further to my last post, I decided to check on the NHS site:
Quote
Ask your GP or visit any sexual health or GUM (genito-urinary medicine) clinic for the hepatitis B vaccination.
For full protection, you will need three injections of hepatitis B vaccine over a period of four to six months.
A blood test is then taken one month after the third dose, to check that the vaccinations have worked.
You should then be immune (resistant to the virus) for at least five years. A booster injection is usually given five years after the initial injection.
It says at least five years but on Wikipedia it says:
Quote
It is now believed that the hepatitis B vaccine provides indefinite protection. However, it was previously believed and suggested that the vaccination would only provide effective cover of between five and seven years,[16][17] but subsequently it has been appreciated that long-term immunity derives from immunological memory which outlasts the loss of antibody levels and hence subsequent testing and administration of booster doses is not required in successfully vaccinated immunocompetent individuals.[18][19] Hence with the passage of time and longer experience, protection has been shown for at least 25 years in those who showed an adequate initial response to the primary course of vaccinations,[20] and UK guidelines now suggest that for initial responders who require ongoing protection, such as for healthcare workers, only a single booster is advocated at 5 years.[9]
I had mine done in North America and was told it was for life but will now talk to my GP out of interest :)

More importantly in my view why care what the GUM staff think.

Not sure if this is directed at me, but I don't care what the staff thought, though the nurse was quite cute  :rose:

However I had put my sudden urge to visit pro$$ies down as my midlife crisis, and the visit to GUM was to ensure I was clean before resurrecting a 'real' relationship.  :hi:

But, once a punter....  :wacko:

Not only was I asked if I'd paid for sex, but as part of a quick chat about it, was asked if this was (in the nurse's words) "with escort type girls, or street girls" - when I answered with escorts, I was told that was good, as they generally took good care of themselves, and that a number were checked out there on a regular basis. As others have said, I was asked if I thought I would pay for sex again, and I answered honestly that I probably would.

I was then offered a full batch of tests, the hep b vaccine and advice, and it was recommended that I pop back in occasionally to get checked out, and that I could get in touch any time if I had any questions or concerns.

I said before when writing about my trip that I didn't feel judged at all - the questions were purely to find out how to offer me the most appropriate tests, advice and vaccination. It was actually a far more positive experience than I'd expected, and nothing like as embarrassing as I'd feared.

I seriously doubt you'd have an STD just by visiting prossies- unless you went Bareback.

Plus did your "real relationship" do the same- get an STD check up or did she blow some guy in the toilet before meeting you for coffee?

Excellent - much appreciated thank you.   :)  :drinks:
No problem. They're 'walk-in' clinics, rather than by appointment, so you simply turn up. This usually means a waiting time of anything between 30 - 45 minutes, if it's a simple checkup for reassurance. They test for the usual things, including taking a blood sample to test against AIDS.

The results will take about two weeks, but if you're in the clear, they don't contact you back. If you're going with a partner, which I assume you're not, you can make a joint appointment for the results, as I've done with a couple of girlfriends in the past.

Very relaxed, chilled out and non intrusive, with regards to the questions. If you're nervous about being asked a question by the nurses, just say that you're getting into a new relationship and part of that requires that you both get checked out, to reassure one another.  :hi:

Sounds great.  :)

I once went to a walk in centre in Exeter where I seemed to be the only non-teenage patient - much to their amusement. Funny looks from the medical staff too. I think everyone assumed I was gay.  :unknown:

I expect London is a little more cosmopolitan and sophisticated than that.  :D

I went to one in St Albans and the waiting room was packed. After about an hour I asked how much longer it was going to be before I was called (I was busting to pee!) and she said probably another hour+ as there was only one doctor on. I couldn't wait as I had to get to work.

Went back the next day and was seen within 15 mins and was out in about an hour. Luck of the draw I guess.

They told me to phone 7 working days later for results.

I can well believe that and it's unfortunate! I can only go on my own personal experience of the clinics I've used and St Thomas's and Guys appear to be reasonably efficient in getting people in and out, in addition to having more than one nurse on duty!  :D

Been to St Mary's Paddington. I have a false name and DoB that I use there and they don't need to know your address, only what PCT area you live in. Very anonymous and you fill in a from saying how many sexual partners you have had recently, what part of the world they were from, whether you've done bareback or anal etc. No awkward questions face-to-face, just the tests. But on a good day it takes around 2 hours, mostly waiting.
