The other week, me and my girlfriend had unprotected sex for the first time - she had never done this before, and neither had I. My question is that is it possible to get an STD if it's both your first time having unprotected sex ever? She's on the pill, and this was also a one off. But any information would be of great help if I may be at risk of an STD/STI. Thanks.
okay, if neither of you have ever had unprotected sex with any one else then the chance you have an std or her are slim to non.
although protected sex is protected there is a slim chance for skin to skin transmitted STDs such as HSV, syphilis and HPV... but if niether of you have had any signs or symptoms of those I wouldn't worry... However if either of you have ever had unprotected sex with any one else I would suggest testing.
Thanks! We haven't ever had unprotected sex with anyone else before, and the day we did with each other was Sunday 2nd of January - is it too early for signs or symptoms as it's now the 5th of January?
well again you only would have been at risk for HSV syphilis and HPV... This is a low low risk... BUT if you did get one of those it could take a couple weeks to develop symptoms and HPV could take years to even become active. I honestly wouldn't worry about it. If you really are I would just get tested the both of you.
