Unprotected sex: Go see your doctor, planned parenthood (yes, even for men) or county health/std clinic for testing. Get tested as soon as possible if you have symptoms. Then get repeat testing as sometimes it takes a while to turn positive if you don't have symptoms. All depends upon which std you have. Check out http://www.Cdc.Gov/hiv/topics/testing/resources/qa/index.Htm & http://hivtest.Cdc.Gov/stdtesting.Aspx.
