Question: HELP ME! wierd question

 bob33 - Thu Dec 23, 2004 12:08 am

I wanted to know if you could get STD’s by everyday contact with people or by contast with another persons blood? Also, I know this is kind of weird but... I was wondering if you could get STD’s by wearing your girlfriend underwear right after she used them :wink: ? Could anyone tell me the other ways you could catch STD’s? thanks.

You could contract AIDS from infected blood....and you probably could get a STD from someone elses undergarments if they were infected with a virus like warts or a bacterial infection, especially if you have a cut or tear on your penis.

It sounds like you are concerned that you may have contracted something. It's always best to go to a doctor and get examined. Better to put your mind at rest that way.
