How to identify whether a woman has STD without medical tests?

by Rachel on April 7, 2011

If come across a woman you don’t know her very much and you wanna have sex with her, how can you determine whether she has STD or not, especially HIV-AIDS?
It is said that if there is a bad smell there, then she may go down with some sort of inflammation, is it right?

In general the answer is NO, there is no way of telling, especially if she has HIV. There maybe some visual signs of STD including open sores or warts around the vagina and lesions on the forehead for AIDS, but Its always safest to practise safe sex, use condoms and dental dams.

Not sure why you give me the thumbs down, do you say you’ve got Hepatitis in another question? If so, the girl should be just as worried about you…..

well if you really must have sex with her obviously wear a condom NO MATTER WHAT even if she says she is a virgin Who cares! wear one …. anyways but like i was saying if you are planning on having sex you might want to have a visual examination of her privates, i mean not like in an obvious way or anything, and if you see anything WEIRD then thats probably a sign… BUT obviosly you just should ask her if she has ever been tested, but people lie sometimes and say they have and say they are clean when in reality they have never been tested and dont even know for sure if they have something or not….. Well good luck, whatever you do be smart! and remember a few minutes of pleasure are not worth a lifetime of having something unwanted like HIV, herpes, or warts….. (not saying she has any of that but you get what im saying)

The reason why doctors have to use blood tests and pap smears to know if someone has an STD is that even a trained doctor can’t just look and tell. If a doctor can’t, you can’t either. So always use condoms, get to know a woman first, and don’t have sex with prostitutes.

Without blood tests and open communication you wont know, and neither will she about you.
As for the ‘smell’ it could be any number of things…. she’s just finished or is about to start her period, a UTI, yeast infection or even medications that she is taking. So that alone will not tell you anything.
And remember… no glove= no love.

There is NO way to know if a person has any STDs just by looking at them (except for obvious signs like sores).

Most STDs have no signs or symptoms. I personally have both genital herpes and HPV. If someone took a look a me they would have NO idea I have either virus.

This is why it is so important to know your STD status, as well as your partners, and to ALWAYS use condoms. Good luck to you!

no… you can not always tell that someone has an STD unless they are having a herpes break out or something…some STD’s can go with no symptoms for months and months… including HIV/AIDS….so be smart about who you sleep with… always get tested and make sure the girls you sleep with get tested too….

There is no way to be sure…and even with tests, unless she shows you the actual results you can’t be sure. If you are going to have sex with someone you should be comfortable enough to ask about their sexual well-being.

The is no way to identify whether or not a woman has a STD other then them being tested.
Some STDs have symtoms for example abnormal discharge, unpleasent odour or even visible signs such as worts. Wheres as HIV-AIDS has no symptoms whats so ever and can only be detected with a blood test.
So either you find out abit more about the woman you are sleeping with to ensure they havent a sexual transmitted infection or you use comdoms, either way there is no safe way to tell.
