I have an active sexual life and have multiple sexual partners. Is there a discreet way to get tested for stds?

If you see a physician and you have hiv, your physician may feel obligated to inform your sexual partners that they have had sex with someone who is HIV positive, but they are not allowed to name who that is. It's very important, though, to be tested for all std's for your health and for the health of your partners. Please use condoms. ...Read more

Is there any way to get STD's if both you and your partner have had no previous sexual partners/don't currently have STD's?
Nope: STDs don't appear out of nowhere. They have to be caught from an infected sex partner. However, there are some infections that are not sexually acquired, but which can then be transmitted to a partner. In that way, an apparent STD can appear in a monogamous couple. Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV1) is an example. Also hepatitis B, which could be caught by blood exposure then sexually transmitted. ...Read more
How often do you need to get STD testing if you are sexually active? What counts as "sexually active"?
It varies a lot: "Sexually active" can mean anything from mutually monogamous with one uninfected partner to multiple casual sex partners (perhaps without condoms) every week. The first doesn't need STD testing at all, the second as often as once a month. Sex of partners is important -- higher risk for gay men than straight men and women. For most hetersexual singles, every 6-12 months probably is about right. ...Read more

Sex with a condom is less likely to pass a STD but doesn't stop them all. If he thinks he was, get tested. Some will just make him uncomfortable for a while but they may make you sterile, forever. ...Read more

Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted disease (std) caused by the bacterium, chlamydia trachomatis. Chlamydia is known as a "silent" disease because you may be unaware that you are infected due to lack of symptoms. Chlamydia is reported to present with no obvious symptoms in up to 75% of women and 50% of men. An untreated person might be asymptomatic years without knowing it and be capable of spreading the bacteria to someone else.
According to the cdc, modes of transmission for chlamydia include: vaginal, anal, or oral sex with rare instance of chlamydia being be passed from a mother to her baby during childbirth. The bacteria would only be able to live for a short while on a hard surface. I know that people, say you get chlamydia off a toilet seat or in a sauna. That would be really hard to do. Fresh, live bacteria from a toilet seat would have to enter your body through your urethra or your vaginal area. Since most people donâ€™t rub genitalia against the toilet seat that would be a very unlikely way to get an infection. If you had an open skin lesion and rubbed it against bacteria that was still alive, I guess that might technically be feasible.
I hope this is helpful. ...Read more
