Is it possible to get an Std from doing this?

by Rachel on June 6, 2011

Can you get an Std if you only have sex with someone who doesn’t have an std? Also if you later after you have had sex with someone and you have sex with someone different who also has no std. Can you contract std’s this way if you have sex with many people but you never did with anyone who had an std.

If you are having sex only with people who do not have STD’s, there is no way to get one (they don’t come out of nowhere). However, the person you have sex with may be having sex (or had sex) with someone who DOES have one, and they may not have any symptoms so they THINK they don’t. Having sex with many people puts you at risk because STD’s are very prevelant, so obviously the chances of them all being completely clean aren’t all that great.

But most simply put, if your partner does not have one, you aren’t going to get one.

No. Wow. No.

Someone in the line must have an STD. They may not even know it or be showing any symptoms, but someone must have one to get one.

Are you 100% sure that they do not have an STD? Have they been tested?

A lot of the times people have an STD but don’t even know it because they have no symptoms.

Sometimes you dont even have to have sex. Even oral could pass along an STD like Herpes. Are you having symptoms or just worried that it could happen?

not all stds are from having sex.
but if you have sex with someone who doesnt have an std,…then there is no way of getting an std FROM SEX.
but if you have other sexual contact with someone with an std then you can get an std
or you can get crabs from a toilet seat.

sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) require actual sexual intercourse for transmission. For example, studies have found that oral sex can transmit HIV (the virus that causes AIDS), hepatitis B virus, herpes, genital warts, syphilis and gonorrhea. Other acts, such as petting, could possibly transmit some of these infections as well. Contact with infected body fluids (particularly blood, semen and vaginal secretions) is necessary for spreading HIV and hepatitis B. Therefore, touching and petting (without ejaculation) would not be likely to pass these viruses from person to person. However, the same is not true for genital warts or herpes. Only contact with the lesion is needed to spread these infections.

I am not sure what you mean by fooling around, but my definition would include some contact with the genitals. If you have been doing this, then there is some risk, depending on the circumstances. I hope that you understand an important aspect of disease transmission: If your partner is not infected with an STD, then you cannot possibly catch an STD from him, regardless of the sex act that you perform. If you are absolutely sure that your partner is a virgin, then he is unlikely to have any STD. Even if you had sex with him, you could not catch anything. (One exception to this is if a person’s partner contracted an STD that is also spread in nonsexual ways. For example, HIV and hepatitis B can be spread from mother to child before or during childbirth, or by needle-sharing among people who use intravenous drugs.)

No, it is isn’t ……But, how do you or the other person KNOW that they are clean and have no STD?

How do you know that your sexual partner is not lying?

Unless you ”Know”, then you are taking a risk. And, you only have to be wrong just once.

Yeah that’s exactly how i got herpes! I had sex with a bunch of people they all said they didn’t have STD’s and i got one. I think it must have been the friction.
