How do i know if someone has a sexual transmitted disease?

They tell you

Sex
Most often, the people need to be tested for STD's and then it is really there moral and ethical obligation to tell you they have an STD if you are a sexual partner of theirs. Simple clues of course could be lesions on the genitals, a foul smelling discharge, etc. but you would only suspect it, and then should avoid sex until you know what your getting yourself into. Best wishes.

Might a sexual transmitted disease show up on a blood test?

STD

Blood
STDs do show up on blood tests--if they are tested for. Syphilis, HIV, Hep, can be revealed in blood, as some Herpes. The others like chlamydia and GC are done with swabs. But "routine" blood tests don't "screen" for these diseases

How safe is a condom to protect against a sexual transmitted disease ?

Helps

Condom
Condoms are very effective at preventing STDs that are transmitted by fluid like gonorrhea, chlamydia, HIV and trichomoniasis. They are still helpful but less so against disease passed by skin to skin contact like herpes, HPV and syphilis. If these infections are in areas where the condoms are not covering the transmission is possible.

Dr. Martin Raff answered:

I am wondering can you get a std or a sexual transmitted disease by going to the restroom or to the bathroom?

STDs

Condom
Every time a patient has told me that they acquired a sexually transmitted disease from a toilet seat, my response has been "That is a strange place to be having sex." The answer is no, although nothing is 100%.

I've seen a lot of sites encouraging oral sex, what are the side effects? Can you get a sexual transmitted disease?

Bad info

Sex
There is some really bad information out there about sex. Oral sex is a likely way to transmit STD. HIV and herpes are commonly transmitted in this fashion. Unfortunately, in this day and age, talking about sex and getting some sexual history from a potential partner is more important than ever. There are ways to have a healthy sex life with someone who has an STD, but communication is key.
