My boyfriend and I have had sex for about a year (and have been together for a year). I have had unprotected sex with four other partners in the past…

…My boyfriend has been tested for STDs and doesn’t have any. Can I have the possibility of having one or no since he’s clean?

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.

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

It’s good that your boyfriend got tested, but it would be a good idea to get tested as well.

If both of you don’t have any STIs, and are not having sexual contact with other people, STIs would not be a risk.

Using condoms and/or dental dams can help reduce the risk of STIs.
