Is it possible to acquire an STD from sucking on a womans

Resolved Question:

Is it possible to acquire an STD from sucking on a woman's breasts or from touching the outside of her vagina? If someone were to engage in either of those activities, should they get tested?

Hello Stan,
I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.

Usually these activities may not warrant a STD screening. Genital warts and herpes may transmit / communicate with intimate skin contact. So this may be the only issue, which have theoretical possibility of transmission, but the incidence would be too low (especially if the woman was not a sex worker), with just a single incidence.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

Thank you, Dr. Arun. The woman in question was a prostitute, so technically, she is a sex worker. On the other hand, this was my first encounter. I was sober and very apprehensive and careful not to engage in any activity where there would be an exchange of bodily fluids. I briefly touched her clitoris and sucked on her nipples, but that was the extent of any use of my mouth. (Please excuse the rather graphic description).


 


I did not notice any warts or lesions on her body. I remained dressed during the entire encounter. It was stupid, really.


 


Based on the above information, does your opinion remain the same?

Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 10 months ago.
You are very welcome Stan.

There is unlikely to be a transmission. I would not be worried.

It is privilege assisting you.

Please stop sending me follow up emails. It is far too easy to click on your link and see the entire thread without any requirement for a password. Anyone could sit at my computer, look at my email and easliy see this communication, resulting in damage to my reputation and personal relationships.


 


It is unconscionable that this information is accessible without requiring a password.


 


1. Give me password XXXXXXXXXX


2. Stop emailing me NOW.


 


I have my answer, and I'm satisfied with it. I don't need you any more.
