Ejaculation on chest

May 24, 2006

Is it possible to get an STD if a man ejaculated on my chest? I don't have a rash... just one pimple every once and a while. But I read every where that not everyone gets symptoms. Thanks so much for your time!!!

Response from Dr. Frascino


Ejaculation on your chest will not cause any STDs. In particular, HIV cannot permeate intact skin.

Instead of reading "everywhere" about symptoms, I suggest you spend some time on this site reading about STD prevention and HIV risk. To slightly change an old proverb, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of symptoms!"

Get informed. Stay safe. Stay well.

Dr. Bob
