I think I may have a std, my vagina area was red for a couple days after sex and hurt. Then 2 days later I kept getting white discharge, then I used a pad and it turned green. I later noticed blood in it though and realized I was getting my period. I want to get tested tomorrow but am not sure I can because of my period. If I have this Trichomonas is it curable? Or is it something I will live with for the rest of my life?

Most STD/STIs are curable (including bacterial and yeast infections), but you need to see a doctor to get it identified and treated as soon as possible. Call the place where you'd go to get tested and find out if you should come iin while you have your period or not.

Umm, I went to get tested and they couldn't do the proper test but told me they were going to assume it was clamidia, I think. They gave me some 4 pink pills which I took this morning. I felt sick with them but didn't throw them up and now it's around 9pm here and my period is down to a spotting. What's up with this?

Please, can someone tell me what's going on... I am still bleeding, but it's like spotting right now pretty lightly. Is this normal? This happened the 2 and 3rd day of what I thought was a period. Does this mean I did have the std?

Without knowing what medication they gave you, we can't know if spotting is a normal side effect. Your best bet would be to call the clinic and ask them all your questions. (Personally, I would also ask what makes them assume that it's chlamydia, and how they can be certain without tests. I find it a little strange that they just assumed that's what it is, and gave you something to treat it.)
