SO I made out with this one dude for like 10 mins... I am a guy too. Pretty sure the guy didn't have any diseases. It happened on Friday afternoon. Anyways, Saturday night and all day yesterday and today, my stomach has been hurting! I have gotten and Hep-B vaccination when I was younger, so I know I didn't catch that... uhhh Can't get a blood test. My parents will find out and kill me. But what can I catch from making out with another guy? My stomach hurts, what does that tell me?

  • I am still in pain. I think I may have gotten something. I am always tired, my stomach is killing me, and I feel like I am ready to throw up sometimes...What could this possibly be? :confused:

  • You can *never* be sure just by looking at them that someone doesn't have any diseases. FYI. Could be just a stomach bug. Or anxiety. However you need to get checked for STDs if you had intercourse. "Made out" has different meanings for different people.

  • If you truly only made out (kissing, snogging, whatever you wish to call it) then the chances of contracting an STD are very low unless the two of you had open sores or cuts in your mouths. Having said that, there are many illnesses that can be contracted by oral/oral contact. Although not a common symptom stomach pain can be present with the common cold and flu. Another possibility is mononucleosis (mono, the kissing disease). There are many very common illnesses that you could have picked up. My suggestion would be to see a doctor if your throat pain worsens, a fever is present or you begin producing phlegm or bloody discharge. If worse comes to worse get an appointment with your doc and let your parents know that you're 'big enough' to be seen without them standing over you. It's completely normal for teens to start showing independance and wanting some privacy especially with doctors. I'd go ahead and tell the doc that you were making out with someone before the illness started although I see no reason that you have to have to tell them it was someone of the same sex. G'Luck and hope you feel better!

  • Probably just nerves but could be the flu. If you have sex (which it seems like you didn't), it is hepatitis C that you don't get shots for...and it is probably number 2 on the list for worst diseases to catch. Always use a condom.
