i had unprotected sex (mistake #1) with a guy that i don't know at all (mistake #2) but we only did this for 25 seconds, if that, and he didn't have any sores on his penis and he did not come in me. i am concerned about an std, he told me he didn't have one, even after intercourse, but i still don't trust him (i don't know him). so my question is can i get an std from intercourse if he didn't come and didn't have any sores? and how long after this incident should i wait til i get a pap smear; i want accurate results, but soon! please help

Yes, you have had a STI transmission risk - all STIs can be transmitted through unprotected sex, even if it's brief, as some STIs are transmitted through just genital contact, and others can be transmitted through pre-ejaculate.

You're going to want to get a FULL STI screening (not just a pap smear) in about a month, and one about 6 months after that, or get into your gynecologist or doctor if you start experiencing any sort of symptoms of infection before that (sores, a change in discharge, pain, etc.).

Yes, unfortunately- some STIs will not show up in tests until at least a month after exposure, so you'll have the most accurate results if you wait a bit to get tested.

(Also, please do not double post- it's against the guidelines of the boards, and it makes it hard to keep things organized.)
