Question: contracting and STD from clean partners

 dal22 - Wed Sep 17, 2008 4:56 pm

My boyfriend and I had unprotected anal sex, and then continued with vaginal sex. We both have been the only partners with each other, and we both have tested clean for any STD's.
It occured about 5 days ago and I havent had any symptoms of anything, however I was wondering if it was still possible to contract some sort of disease or infection, and if I should go to the doctor. Thank you,

User avatar Hello,
If you are both verified without disease the only real risk is the possible infection due to the anus being a "dirty" site. Then fecal matter can be moved and caused other infections but you would likely have symptoms so without any cause for concern on your part you shouldn't need to see a doctor simply because you had sex in this way.

Best wishes.
