Can you get an STD from a virgin?
The word "virgin" is not a medical term, and is not very
descriptive. The real question is what kind of intimate contact can
spread STDs. Since some STDs spread by skin-to-skin contact, a
person who has not had vaginal sex can carry an STD like herpes,
genital warts/HPV, syphilis, molluscum, and pubic lice.
Yes...they may still be virgins but may have performed oral sex at
some point or another on multiple partners
Yes, HiV can be transfered from the mother and as for infections
theres also e-coli which is from many things. E-coli causes regular
appearances of Cystitis, also agree with the point made above. You
should always get checked out or use a condom, Genital Herpes is
also one which you cant protect yourself from and they can be
contracted in many different ways, including oral sex
Gonorrhea is another disease that can be contracted by giving or
receiving oral sex (between any two or more people of either sex).
Since some girls still consider themselves virgins after oral sex,
you have to be sure of what those other girls think the definition
of "virgin" is.
I'd like to get away from the doom and gloom posts above and
congratulate you on being responsible enough for your own health to
ask the question in the first place. Well done! As others have
pointed out, it depends on the girl's definition of virginity. I'd
also like to point out that you are relying on her sense of honesty
If you and your fella are intimate enough to have had the
'previous partners' talk and are far enough into your relationship
to be thinking about not using condoms any more (you'll need
another method of birth control) then you are obviously close
enough for you to suggest that you both get tested for STIs. Go to
the clinic together.
If, however, your man is trying to persuade you to forego the
condoms, because he 'knows' he's clean because his previous
partners were all virgins, and won't go to get tested because it's
pointless, it's not good. He's trying to bully and manipulate you.
It will be really tempting to give in so you can prove to him how
much you love and trust him, but, please, ask yourself this
question; if he loved and trusted you he'd get himself tested,
Until you both get tested, use condoms. After your tests come
back clear, use a different form of birth control and have lots and
lots of fun x
Remember to concider the point that men and women do stray so,
unless you trust each other 100% and are willing to take the risks
involved if s/he does stray and doesnt use a condom, it would be
best to carry on using them. I myself have the same agreement with
my boyfriends and have only had 1 stray and ended up with a STI
which was LUCKILY treatable...
A person whom has not had sexual intercourse can in fact transmit
an STD if the person is infected. Many times STDs are passed down
from a person's parents. If the subject is not infected they cannot
spread the disease unless they become infected with an STD.
Sure, a sexually transmitted disease can be transmitted by other
means. A man recently contracted an HIV infection from a kidney
