I could never live or go on if i got something. I have called a state dept of health here free testing site the man asked me when i explained what am i worried about.He said you didnt even have sex.well should i worry i had a test done about 5 days later im not sure what it was it had to do with dna and its been about 25 days now and im gonn atake another one at 30 days what do you think please answer me this time help me.There was no sex at all.Just deep kissing,fingering.i licked his fingers aftrer he had them in me and then i touched him and he did have precum but nothing else at all.Please respond please,please,please.I suffer from panic,anxiety and ocd so please help me out here.I am in therapy already and my therapist says i have nothing to worry about it takes more than what i did. But im still not convinced.I have had a few different docotrs tell me the same that i am fine and i have nothing to worry about.Please answer.Thanks so much for your time.

What do I think?
Well, your therapist told you you have "nothing to worry about." You "have a few different doctors tell you the same, that you are fine and have nothing to worry about." I think you should add me to the rapidly expanding list of health professionals all telling you exactly the same thing. Which part of "you're fine and don't have anything to worry about" don't you get?
Stop testing. Continue counseling. Stop worrying!
