Anytime you have unprotected sex, bodily fluids contain the virus for HIV and bacteria for STD'S. Bleeding gums or open sores allow the spread of diseases more easily. Look for any symptoms or signs of changes in your health, if so get tested. Never trust anyone about their health history, and practice safe sex so you won't be worried.
