stupid question but is it possible?
May 14, 2006

i was just wondering since it has been bothering me is it possible to contract an std by having unprotected anal sex with someone who is clean of all std's? The reason for me to ask this is that my lips are constantly getting dry i don't have bumps around or on my lips i'm just worried thanks in advance

Response from Dr. McGovern

If your partner is free of all STDs then you cannot contract one.

However, I think the best message I can emphasize is that protected sex is the way to go all the time - 100 percent.

Then you will not have these nagging worries...EVER! Also I have seen too many people who have changed partners and have trusted the new partner and then regretted it.

Safe sex never lets you down when it comes to HIV, STDs, or hepatitis viruses.
