Hello MedHelp team
Last week, I met up with another gay man and I licked/sucked the guy's ____ through his underwear for about 10 seconds.
Now I am scared to death that I might catch something. Can i possibly get an STD?/HIV from this act?
Also, would you recommend that I get and HIV/STD test?
Thank you for responding to my question. I will admit that I am ill-informed about STDs and their transmission - hence the numerous questions this week. I do appreciate the link to the ASHA website.
Also, I have not had a gardasil shot but will investigate where to get one. Do you recommend one to everyone?
Again thanks for calming my irrational fears.
gardasil is a series of 3 shots. it helps to prevent infection with 4 of the most common types of genital hpv infections - 2 that are associated with most external genital warts and 2 that are the most common causes of genital cancers and oral cancers. It's well worth getting whether you are male or female.
