eg. What are ways to avoid getting all types of STD?

Oral sex STD, 16 please help?

Asked by on April 16, 2014

Long story short, two days ago I gave a guy oral sex, and he returned the favor. He told me hes been with 5 girls and that they were clean besides two that he didn’t know very well. My question is:
Can you get an STD from giving head?
Can you get an STD form receiving oral sex?
I’m 16, kinda nervous. Also can I get AIDS?

Yes you can get an STD from giving head, which is oral sex, so, yes you can also get an STD from receiving.

For example, Genital herpes isn’t typically caused by HSV-1; it’s caused by another type of the herpes simplex virus called herpes simplex virus-2 (HSV-2) and is spread by sexual contact. But even though HSV-1 typically causes sores around the mouth and HSV-2 causes genital sores, these viruses can cause sores in either place. In other words, if you had an open cold sore and give head, your partner has a chance at contracting the virus down there. Yum.

You can also gets AIDS, yes, but keep in mind, it doesn’t just…appear, it needs to be carried by a person or an object, i.e. needles, etc

You should look up the different types of STDs and how to prevent contracting them.

Also, if you’re ever worried you may have contracting something, please make an appt. with your doctor, they can provide tests. Even if you want peace of mind. And be safe any time you engage in any sexual activity.
