Non-Genital STDs: Your main risks for std transmission without intercourse or performing/receiving oral/anal sex is from kissing. Herpes type i, mononucleosis or cytomegalovirus are most common. CMV is not a concern for healthy individuals and mono usually causes a prolonged, fatigued illness. Herpes, as they say, is forever. Talk with your doctor about your test results. False positives do occur.
