Customer Question

Hi I actually had a question, my ex was usign methamphetamines while we were together. Is it possible that he got an std from just using meth or would he have had to have sex with somebody that had it in order to get it. He never injected it he snorted it.

His use of methamphetamine would not cause transmission of any STD. As you point out he was not injecting so that potential of sharing a dirty needle is not there. He would have to have sexual contact with someone in order for him to contract an STD.
