Can you get an STD?

Asked by on June 17, 2014

If you wear a condom can you still get an STD…if so which ones or can you get all of them?
also…if you’re younger is it easier to get one…and for a woman to get one?

You can get STD's at any age, 12, 32, 65 whatever.

Condoms protect you from all stds, but one's like herpes that can sometimes be on the skin rather than just genitals can be transfered. You can get std's from oral sex. Herpes can be transfered simply by kissing someone.

You can still get an STD with a condom. The risk is decreased dramatically though. The way you would get an STD with a condom is if the condom failed. I.e. a break, tear, or hole. Its important to be aware of the structural integrity of the condom during its use. If it may be ripped, it should be changed immediately.
