if one accidentally began to put on a condom the wrong way (just the tip) and then stopped and put it on the correct way, is there any risk of stds?

Too Nit Picking: There really is no way to answer these type of extreme situation questions. If you have symptoms after the encounter of an std then it is probably prudent to be tested for it.

STD: If the condom was exposed to your partner's body fluids that are infected and you come in contact with those through the condom, then you may get infected.
