Are you born with STDs, or do you have to catch them to have one? It's just, me and my boyfriend are each other's firsts, and we've only been with each other.

So I'm just checking, you can't be born with them can you?

By the way, we don't have unprotected sex often, but have in the past.

You can be born with STD's if one of your parents is infected or just carries an STD.

basically, seeing as you aint said bout any STD related problems before i wouldnt say your infected, but there is a chance you or your bf could be CARRYING the disease and given it to the other, but the chance is low. Quit the unprotected sex don't want to get pregnant this young.

''pregnancy is the worst STD.''

Stroller agony auntOk, so yes you can be born with STDs, but it's very rare - if you're each others' firsts then you're at a very low risk. Get yourself checked out, but don't worry about it too much.

Here in the UK every hospital has an STD - or GUI, as I think they call them these days - clinic. You can walk in off the street and get yourself tested - you need a spare couple of hours, but no appointment. Please don't feel embarrassed about visiting the clinic - they're nicely furnished these days, not too intimidating and no-one will judge you for it. They see hundreds of people all the time, most of them are perfectly nice people in the same kind of loving relationship that you are, so there's no reason for them to think a big deal over you.

PancakesYum agony auntIt is possible to be born with an STD. Some infections, like gonorrhea, herpes, HPV and HIV can be passed from a woman to the fetus during pregnancy or childbirth. You should always use protection having sex! Always remember to use a condom as it is the only form of protection that can protect you from becoming pregnant and getting an STD.
