Could I have a std?

Maybe. Maybe not.: A woman who's been having "s" with another person, might have allowed the other person to "t" some sort of "d" to her. So, a woman who has had sex (even once) with another person, indeed could have a sexually transmitted disease... But only if the other person had an std at the time of sex.
