We help thousands of people get STD testing every day. Have questions about STDs? Here are some easy answers to your not-so-easy questions.
What is an STD?
An STD is a sexually transmitted disease and most people will have an STD in their lifetime. It’s estimated that there are 19 million new cases of STD’s in the U.S. each year. One of the reasons why STD’s are so common is because they are often “silent.” You can be infected without showing any sign of an infection. STD’s are often passed through sexual activity but can be passed to an unborn child during pregnancy, through IV drug needles, skin-to-skin, or through breastfeeding.
How do I know if I have an STD?
Often, STD s like Chlamydia and Gonorrhea have no signs or symptoms. You won’t see a bump or a rash or have an itch. That’s one of the reasons why STD’s are so common and problematic. You are probably reading this because you are worried that you may been infected with an STD. The only way to know if you have an STD is to get a simple STD test. It’s very easy.

Is oral sex considered “safe sex”?
In a word, no. You can get an STD from oral sex, both giving and receiving. It is a relatively lower-risk activity compared to vaginal or anal sex. But, to be safe, use a latex or polyurethane condom or a dental dam when giving or receiving oral sex. The main concern is cuts or sores in the mouth. Herpes is spread from skin to skin contact. You should know that condoms decrease the risk but are not 100% effective in preventing herpes transmission during oral sex. Syphilis is very easy to spread through oral sex. Bottom line? Oral sex is not safe sex.
What Are the Symptoms of STDs?
Frequently, there are no symptoms. If symptoms are present, they may include one or more of the following:
- Sores, bump and ulcers in the oral or genital area
- Discharge from vagina or penis
- Itching in the genital area
- Painful intercourse
- Painful urination
- Weight loss
- Pain in the lower belly
- Anal or vaginal pain
- Bleeding other than during your period
- Skin turning yellow
- Redness and swelling close to the vagina or penis
