Yes. Anyone who is sexually active should be tested for STDs, even if you do not experience symptoms. Many STDs can be mistaken for other conditions or do not present symptoms. And, while sex using a condom or dental dam can diminish the risk of getting an STD, no sexual activity is completely without risk.

All sexual contact--whether it’s oral, vaginal, or anal sex--can result in the transmission of an STDs. Making regular STD testing part of your health routine is a good practice to ensure the health of you and your sexual partners.
