Can I get an STD by masturbating anally, using my vaginal discharge?
Dec 21, 2012

hi, I'm a 14 year old lesbian... I have been masturbating since I was very young... I recently started masturbating anally... tonight, I decided to do it because I was... well, horny... I didn't have any lube, so I used vaginal discharge from myself, since I was very wet...(forgot that I hadn't washed my hands in an hour when I was masturbating...) so basically I had dirty fingers, and was masturbating with my vaginal fluid. I was very scared... can I get an infection or std from this!? please help!

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi You cannot get any STI from yourself! It's best practice for future times you masturbate to always wash your hands before.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
