Ask Dr. K
STD FROM A VIRGIN?

QUESTION
I've been having unprotected sex often with my partner, but both of us were virgins when we started having sex. We have no sexual history with other partners. Is it possible to get an STD from a partner with no previous sexual experiences?

ANSWER
The answer is no. In order for you to get an STD, one of you must have had sex with someone else who has an STD and contract it during that sexual episode. If you are only having sex with each other and you are each other's first partner, then there's no way you can have an STD. Click here for more information on how STDs are spread.

To your health,
