  Today, during an unrelated appointment with my GP, he offered me a free check for chlamydia. Despite me reassuring him that I was STI free, he insisted that I should undergo the test. I ended up agreeing, only because I was too embarrassed to admit that I'm still a virgin. FML

Exactly what I was going to say. I'm a 20 year-old virgin, and although I joke about it often, I really don't mind it. It gets frustrating sometimes, but it's definitely nothing to be embarrassed about.

I am in the same boat. An interesting story about that is I had to hold an event about sexual health even though I've never done anything nor will I for a long time. I also had to buy condoms for the event and hand them out.

uhm? Tf she doesn't. it may be a "sexually transmitted disease" but all it takes Is a drop of saliva to catch one. (Idk about chlamydia, but in general.)

What does being from Canada have anything to do with this? I am from Canada and get my STD/STI tests every 3 months for free, whether I'm in a long term relationship or not. Better safe than sorry. And that's awesome that the OP was able to get the test for free regardless if they are a virgin or not. It's a step in the right direction since most places have to pay for anything medical related.

All sexual health screening is free over here, there are loads of places where you can just pick up free postal chlamydia/gonorrhoea tests without even having to speak to anyone. Makes sense to me, preventing spread is the best way to deal with it

It's important to feel comfortable talking with your doctor honestly about your health. Keep in mind that they probably would agree that from a health standpoint, virgin is no bad thing as it guarantees you are disease free. Nothing to be embarrassed about.
