Any time a person engages in sex or sex-like activity with a partner, there is a chance of contracting a sexually transmitted disease STD. Condoms and other barrier methods may help reduce the risk of contracting an STD, but these methods are only risk reduction, not risk elimination.
Many STDs show no s or symptoms; this is why it is important to be tested regularly. If a person has engaged in sex or sex-like activity, they are at risk for a sexually transmitted disease.
Many STDs are curable if they are caught early and have no long-term effects. But if left untreated many STDs can cause damage, which is sometimes permanent.

This is why testing and early detection is important. Even if you had sex but have no s or symptoms, you could still have an STD and you can still transmit it to your partner s. If your partner says they have been tested, there is no way to verify what they say. If you are engaging in sex or sex-like activity, you are at risk for a sexually transmitted disease.
Condoms and other barrier methods are risk reduction, not risk elimination.
If you are engaging in sex, abstinence is the only way to ensure against contracting an STD. This means not engaging in vaginal, oral, or anal sex. Some STDs are curable with antibiotics or other treatment methods.
Talk to your doctor and begin a treatment plan. Do not engage in sex or sex-like activity because it is transmittable.
