Can You Get An Std From People That Are Clean
"Clean": You cannot tell by looking at someone's genitals if they have an std or not. Many stds, such as chlamydia and hiv, remain asymptomatic. For this reason, you should never assume someone is "clean" unless they have a recent negative std panel from their doctor. Always use barrier contraception, such as condoms, if you are unsure. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
This is a disease which can be transmitted from one person to another person through sexually related activities. This does not limit these activities to heterosexual intercourse, but encompasses all modalities of human-to-human sexual activity. It does not include illnesses that may make an individual more susceptible to a condition because of a sexual ...Read more
No: Only get it if involved with someone that is infected. The best solution is to be monogamous. ...Read more
Yes: Like at applebee's? No seriously, i believe you meant oral sex... The answer is yes! oral sex can transmit or acquire some stds. Gonorrhea can cause a throat infection and herpes is easy to transmit to the face and mouth as well. Others, like HIV are highly unlikely. Hpv, or the virus that causes genital warts causes 70% of all head and neck cancers and is spread though oral to genital contact. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Clean?: What do you mean "clean?" if you mean both are free from any std (which would require the both of you to be tested) or both of you are virgins, than using a condom can certainly assure you that an std is not transmitted. If you have oral sex, you can also transmit an std! know your partners past sexual hstory! ...Read more
Can you get syphilis If you are clean and you have unprotected sex with someone else who is also clean?
No: Syphilis is a bacteria spread from one person to another. Syphilis doesn't magically appear, which means a person must catch it from another person who already has it. The concern is, "How does one know his or her partner doesn't carry syphilis germs caught from a prior sexual encounter?" ...Read more
Define "virgin": It depends on what you mean by "virgin." someone who has never had any form of sexual activity can't have or transmit an std, with the exception of herpes type 1, which usually causes cold sores but can sometimes cause genital herpes. However, someone who has had sex but not intercourse can still have and transmit stds. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can you contract anything from saliva? If you come into contact with someone's saliva and they are infected with anything can you catch/ get it?
Is it possible for you to get aids from having multiple sexual partners and none of them are infected?
STDS: Five stds are potentially deadly, not just hiv. I try in my practice to have frank, open and honest conversations with my patients about the risks of stds. I want them to know which ones are of higher risk; which ones have a vaccine for; and how often to test when one is sexually active. Stds can, in general, be avoided with vaccinations and condoms. I feel that all sexual beings must know this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can you get toxoplasmosis from cleaning out cat litter trays and can it cause you to have mental health problems, as some reports are claiming?
Yes you can: Toxoplasmosis can be transmitted via cat feces, and from undercooked, exposed meat. The parasite can be carried as a cyst within the brain. It can induce the enzyme tyrosine hydroxylase necessary to make the neurotransmitter dopamine. Elevations in Dopamine may be associated with psychotic symptoms -- but toxoplasmosis is not the source of all psychosis. http://tinyurl.com/cftsn7. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
You are likely to get sick if close to sick people indoors, but what if outdoors, are you likely to catch infections or does the fresh air protect u?
Sunlight kills germs: Yes - when we are indoors - it's much easier to 'catch' something from someone else...especially if they are NOT covering their sneeze or cough properly. The great thing about being outdoors is the sunlight will quickly inactivate any germs sprayed forth from a sneeze or cough. Hopefully a fair breeze also can waft any surviving germ particles away in the other direction. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can you tell me what you suggest if both couple are clean, but always do anal sex without condom, until get an u.T.I. Can both of them get hiv?
How can a person get an std/sti if they have both been faithful to each other? Is this possible? Can an STD lie dormant from previous partners?
Low risk, be safe: Most STDs are passed through direct contact with body fluids and/or mucous membranes (the moist parts of the body, like mouth or vagina). If there is no exposure to body fluids (including small breaks in the skin), and good handwashing, then risk is low. However, warts, herpes, parasites can still be a problem even with intact skin. As always, risk is not zero, but quite low overall. ...Read more
