Thanks for your question! If you and your partner have tested negative for STIs/HIV and not had unprotected sex with other partners after getting tested, then technically you would not be at risk to share STIs. In general, however, using condoms every time you have sex is the best way to lessen the chance of getting or giving STIs. Many people follow this rule: Use condoms until you’ve been exclusively dating (not having sex with anyone else) for at least a year.
- Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs)
- Condoms: External (Male) Condoms
- I’m a bi male and plan to possibly have sexual relations with a guy, and I’m afraid of getting HIV/AIDS. When I turn 18, would PrEP be a good idea?
- I’m gay and had protected anal sex as the “bottom” and unprotected oral sex with a new partner two days ago. I’m planning on getting tested for STDs for the first time. How long should I wait before getting tested, and what should I expect?
- I am bisexual and want to know about gay anal sex. Is it bad to have anal sex or what?
