Is it possible to catch an std through saliva contact ?

STIs can be a very real risk for people if they are engaging in certain types of sexual contact. It’s good to know that when it comes to STIs they are transmitted through..

  • Sexual Fluids (Semen and Vaginal fluids)
  • Skin to skin contact (or genital to genital contact)
  • Breast milk
  • Vaginal birth

In order for someone to contract an STI, they would need to engage in sexual activity with a person who already has an STI in which one or more of these modes would come into play.

Fluids like saliva, urine, sweat, and tears can NOT transmit STIs

So, if you engage in any contact where an STI could be a risk, it would be a good idea to get tested.
