I recieved oral from a man, and then within 4 hours later had sex with someone else. I think the oral gave me a yellowish discharge. is it contaious within the 4 hour window? Both people claim they have no symptoms. Is it possible its not an std?

I recieved oral from a man, and then within 4 hours later had sex with someone else. I think the oral gave me a yellowish discharge. is it contaious within the 4 hour window? Both people claim they have no symptoms. Is it possible its not an std?

Get tested: It is unlikely that an std would show symptoms in 4 hours, generally it takes days to weeks for them to take hold once you have been inoculated. The discharge if it is an STD came from before the oral sex. As to what the discharge is, get checked. And yes, you probably may have passed it on to the other person you were having sex with if no protection was used. ...Read more

I briefly licked a man's shaft and scrotum. Which std's can I catch and will I see symptoms on genitals or mouth first?

I briefly licked a man's shaft and scrotum.  Which std's can I catch and will I see symptoms on genitals or mouth first?

Little or no risk: You are at little if any STD risk. Even with the head of the penis in the mouth, oral sex is generally safe, with low risk for all STDs and zero for some, much safer than unprotected vaginal or anal sex. There could in theory be a small risk of herpes or HPV from this exposure, but it would be extremely low. Any symptoms would be oral only; STDs don't travel through the body to unexposed sites. ...Read more
