In brief: Yes

Any exchange of bodily fluids can increase your risks of acquiring a sexually transmitted disease (i.
e. Oral sex). Certain viruses out there are dna virues (herpes, hpv, etc.), which means once you have it, you have it for life; we can treat them...But we cannot cure them. If you've had an intimate encounter with a high-risk individual, play it safe and see your doctor so you don't lose sleep.
