I experienced a severe condom breakage (found out after it

Hello,I experienced a severe condom breakage (found out after it that they not only expired, but were stored underneath a furnace), and the whole top part of the condom ripped during intercourse. I'll try to summarize my situation in the most effective manner:I have one consistent partner, andtook on another earlier this week, and last night was the condom breakage. Now with the consistent partner we no longer use condoms (both of us got tested, and I have the IUD), while promising to remain honest with our sexual activities to not endanger each other's sexual health. So far so good, as he told me of other partners, and got tested in the correct time frame, blah blah blah.Now with this new one, he got tested in December, but had protected sex with a women soon after. Here's the deal: I am contemplating just going to the clinic and getting treated for all bacterial STI's, and was wondering how soon after treatment (if I got anything) will I not have to worry about giving anything to the consistent partner? I know most places say 7 days, BUT those cases seem to be when both parties tested positive. The reason I am just wanting to get treatment, is due to the IUD that I have.New guy said he will go to the clinic so that he can continue sexual relations with me, but I don't know when that will be.So in your opinion:Should I even get tested? For what and when? When would those results come back?When will I no longer be a risk to my other partner (if I just get the treatment)?I try to stay on top of this, because I take my sexual health VERY seriously, and do not want to be that person to give anything to others.

About 11 weeks ago I had unprotected sex with a friend of

Hey! About 11 weeks ago I had unprotected sex with a friend of mine. I found out 5-6 weeks after the sex that she tested positive for syphillis. I got myself tested immediately at I tested negative. If I test myself now after 11 weeks and it still is negative, then I gotta be safe, right? Read somewhere that you should always wait 12 weeks, but one week shouldn't matter THAT much right?

I tested negative for STD's around 4 months ago. I have had continued unprotected sex with the same partner for 5 months. Is it safe to assume I am STD free still, if he has not had any other partners?

I had a tiny ulcer pop up on the underside near the base of my penis after anal sex with my girlfriend. I admit i hadnt taken a shower afterwards for over 2 days as i can be quite lazy sometimes and thats when it showed up. I've been tested using the swab and it came back negative. Also 9 weeks after the sore popped up I got a herpes 1/2 igg blood test and that came back negative . Are these results conclusive? Could it be something else?.
