It is very unlikely for someone to have STD without sexual contact. It is possible for a baby to be infected with STD when it's in a woman who currently is infected with the disease and unfortunately it isn't a pretty site. No, because STD, stands for Sexually Transmitted Disease, thus it is transmitted through having sex, hence the name, you must have some sort of sex to transmit the disease. You can, however, get a virus that is a std that is transmitted in a way other than sexually, however. HIV and HPV can both be transmitted with out having any kind of sex for example.

Then it is next to impossible to catch S.T.D. without being active sexually.It would be almost impossible to contract any STDs without being sexually active.No, the only ways to get an STD is by being sexually active. They however can be caused by cold sores from kissing someone, or obviously having unprotected sex.Other causes can be from having oral sex or anal, if you believe you might have an STD for example pimples on a penis, but you have not had sex then it's probably not an STD as pimples are natural anywhere. However if you are still very unsure then you should check with your doctor.

Can an STD affect the accuracy of a pregnancy test?

An STD does not affect the accuracy of a pregnancy test. The negative or positive result will come out the same with or without an STD.An STD will not effect the results of a pregnancy test. A pregnancy test detects a growth hormone released by a woman's body to help the fetus begin to grow. An STD would not interfere with that hormone, or release any hormones of its own to alter a pregnancy test in any way.
