If A Condom Breaks Can I Get An Std
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
Can I get an std from licking my bf's penis? I only did it once because I was nervous (and he didn't have a condom on too).
Yes: If he carries STD's like gonorrhea and others licking his genitals exposes you to those germs. The likelihood of transfer is increased with duration of exposure and amount of germs present. The exposure you describe seems unlikely to pass an infection but there is always risk with sexual contact. ...Read more
Is 3 weeks after condom breaks, too soon to get checked for stds? Or what STDs need at least 6 weeks to test for and get accurate results?
STDs: Go and get seen, examined and tested now and again in follow-up as directed by the doctor. Preferably in a clinic that deals primarily with STDs. Best wishes for a negative outcome. ...Read more
Can u get an STD if your parent does not have it or has never had it and if you use protection (condom all the time during sex)?
? Parent?: What would your parent have to do with it? Do you mean partner? Condoms reduce but do not prevent all transfer of potentially infected fluids and do not protect skin not covered by the condom. They are a good basic form of protection, but not 100% protective. ...Read more
My bf use two condom an one break an the other did not an was fill with sperm I am scared I wanted to know if I can get pregnant or expose to any STD?
Not likely: As long as one remained intact, then should not be a problem. ...Read more
Possibly: But the odds are dramatically reduced compared to no condom. Warts can appear at the base of the penis where the condom did not cover for example. Urethral infection with organisms such as gonorrhea and chlamydia are less likely to be contracted unless the integrity of the condom was compromised. Abstinence is the only certain way to avoid std, but condom use is the next best thing. ...Read more
Never say never...: Yes you can.Get a more detailed answer ›
I stepped on a used condom today. Can I get an std? I had shoes on but from the cold weather have open cuts on my hands. How about when I wash my feet
No: You cannot catch an std this way. Take care! ...Read more
Much less likely. The cheapest route to prevent stds. But they break, and do not necessarily cover the penis base well. Herpes can get through there as well as other stds.
Boest regimen: know your partner; avoid getting intoxicated, and use a condom! (also to avoid unwanted fatherhood!). ...Read more
Unlikely, but...: Many things are possible in life. You can die in a car crash even if your airbag works every time. Condoms are great. They prevent STDs, prevent pregnancies, are relatively inexpensive and free in some places, easy to use, etc... Of course, a condom doesn't cover the entire body. That means an unlucky person could get herpes or syphilis on the skin outside the condom. Pubic lice could travel also. ...Read more
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
Still possible.: The behavior is risky no matter how you look at it. ...Read more
If I am a heterosexual male that ALWAYS use condoms for protection and never had symptoms. .. do I still need to get checked for STDs every 6 month?
Risk?: Your health and sexual behaviors will play a role here. If you were to tell me you were in a monogamous relationship, STD testing this frequently may not be necessary. If you are having multiple sexual partners, potentially with high risk partners like prostitutes or drug users, then STD's including HIV are more likely. Shoot for that monogamous relationship! ...Read more
Follow up with a doc: Unfortunately there are quite a variety of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and depending on various factors (both the germ and the patient), the incubation period (s) could vary. It's best to A) protect oneself at all times and B) get plugged into a doctor's care so you can get the advice and treatment u need. Looking at the 'numbers' of new STDs per year in the US is quite worrisome. Be safe! ...Read more
Is it still possible to get an std/sti even if you've used protection, such as a condom during sex?
YES: Std is a term for many diseases, some can be from touching prior to penetration or secretions. ...Read more
Sex with female with expired condom did not break sex wasn't for long did water test no holes major risk of std?
You were protected: Welcome to HealthTap. Thanks for your question. The expiration date indicates when the chance of breakage might increase. And it's only how long the manufacturer tested for, not how long it actually might last. If it doesn't break, protection is complete. The idea of microscopic leaks or pores in latex that can let infection pass through is an urban myth. The "water test" is meaningless. ...Read more
I received oral and vaginal sex with a condom. I washed and used alcohol immediately afterwards. Is there any chance I could get any STDS?
Of Course You Can...: Any unprotected intercourse can transmit an std. If this occurred, you should have an std exam done with your doc especially if with a new partner and especially if sexual history is unknown. Better safe than sorry. ...Read more
Yes, it is possible: Depending on proper use of condoms and sexual practices. Condoms do not guarantee 100% protection. ...Read more
Yes: No method (besides abstinence) is 100% effective at protecting against sexually transmitted infections, including hiv. However, using condoms correctly (see box for instructions) is a great way of dramatically lowering the chance of catching something. It is always best to ensure your sexual partners have had a recent negative std check. ...Read more
I'm concerned because the condom looked like it didn't break. When does HIV or STD show up in a test?
I am not sure of your concern if the condom functioned perfectly. Condoms are very good barrier protection against the risk of hiv. If the condom did not fail, why are you concerned?
If you feel the risk of HIV is high then a good and experienced physician can help you prevent infection after exposure if you act within 72 hours.
There are various tests and experts can guide you in person. ...Read more
If you only have 1 partner in sex & you don't use a condom is it still possible to get STDs or aids/ HIV just curious
Sex with expired condom on after took it off fngered her touched penis condom did not break sex was for 5min tops major risk of STDs?
During sex the top of the condom rolled down. The semen was still in the tip. Should I still be concened about std? How long should I wait to get tested
Yes: You can occasionally get std's even with an apparently intact condom, just as you can become pregnant. If there was no gross obvious exposure to semen it is less likely that you were infected, but it never hurts to check, if only for your mental state. You should be tested now and then again in 6-8 weeks and possibly several months later. ...Read more
How high of a risk to give stds from oral. I have sex with an ex and then sex within a couple days with a new guy. Ex didn't wear a condom, on oral or sex. New guy, wore condom but I did oral to him. And in worried. And can't get tested for 2 weeks.
Possibly risky: Oral sex is lower STD risk than vaginal or anal sex, but not totally risk free. Since both of you apparently had other partners recently, you both should see a doctor or clinic for exam & testing. The main risks for oral sex are herpes, gonorrhea, and nongonococcal urethritis. Don't wait: if your own doctor can't see you for 2 wks, go to the health dept or Planned Parenthood. ...Read more
Yes: The barrier (condom) does reduce the risks of both, but is not a 100% protective. The effectiveness can be compromised by the timing/method of use. ...Read more
These are mostly closed end tubes of latex and occasionally other materials to cover the penis during intercourse and prevent pregnancy and disease transmission. A wise person uses them when the history of their partner is unknown. There are some available for women's use ...Read more
