Testing: You did not list symptoms or exposure history. Even if you did, you need a local evaluation to confirm or exclude this collection of diagnoses. Only with a review of exposure history, exam and testing can this be answered with confidence.

A 34-year-old member asked:

Can one get infected by a sexually transmitted disease if one ingests bodily fluids from an infected person?

Yes.... sort of: Oral sex is one way to pass std. Herpes, hpv and syphilis are passed by mouth to skin contact. Gonorrhea, chlamydia and HIV are examples of disease passed by fluids. Ingesting the fluid though is not the issue. The fluid coming into contact with the tissue of the mouth and throat are how infections occur.
Dr. Hunter Handsfield
Infectious Disease 53 years experience
Dr. Livingston is correct. But there is never any STD risk from things like shared eating utensils, glasses, or foods. Even if somehow contaminated with an infected person's body fluids, there would be little or no risk. They're called sexually TRANSMITTED disease for good reason!

Get tested...: Get tested and get an exam by your physician. You can't tell for sure by guessing, 'googling' or asking on a question board. See your doc and get tested. Then follow that up with recurrent and consistent medical care for guidance and testing as long as you are sexually active...

Signs symptoms test: Depends on gender. Discharge, bloody mucous, pain, irritation, burning on urination, known exposure to an std, or a positive test. Some std may not have signs or symptoms. If you suspect you've got one, see your doctor for proper evaluation.
