A female Canada age 22-25, anonymous writes:

So I have 2 sex partners and both are clean ( before you question how I am sure, I have had both men take std tests as well as taken one myself so everyone is safe) but I’m curious if I can still get an std from either of them from unprotected sex? I don’t see them back to back. More like each person gets a week.. but either way am I at risk

CindyCares agony auntYes, you are at risk. Isn't it obvious ? Your two partners may be clean, but not necessarily THEIR other partners , present and / or future, will also be clean. Or, their partners' partners.

Maybe you know, or assume, that for both guys you are being their only sexual partner. But this is a highly risky and unwarranted assumption in the context of a casual physical relationship, and something that, even if true at the present time, could change any moment. After all, why should you be the only one who is allowed to play the field ?

You don't know another person's interim-activities when you're not around.

You can transfer chlamydia or yeast infections within hours of sex. You can kiss someone with Hepatitis B right after he kissed an infected-person; or swapped bodily fluids. It may be days before symptoms show-up. You can get crab-lice within minutes after he had sex with a person with an infestation.

Unless you walk into a clinic together and share your full panel test results; you only have his word he's clean.

Minimize your sex-partners, use condoms, get tested, and you minimize your risk of STD infections.

With every std there is an incubation period where it will not show up on testing - so even with a test done you are still very much at risk . I'm medical

As every aunt and uncle says ..use your head ..Keep and be safe sweetie .. And use protection

Andie's Thoughts agony auntOP, you're really young, but that's no excuse to be naive and irresponsible. You shouldn't be having unprotected sex.

Why aren't you worried about PREGNANCY?!

I don't care how many sexual partners you have at once, provided they all know you're sleeping with others and you ALL get tested every few months. However, you could get pregnant because of "your" collective stupidity (you and the men). Seriously, OP. No point risking pregnancy and STDs for a few fun times with a couple of guys.

mystiquek agony auntOf course you can because that was just for that period of time. If both of them are having sex with others then they could easily pass something on to you. Why on earth are you having unprotected sex anyways? Not too smart missy. Use your head and protect yourself from sexual diseases and an unwanted pregnancy!

A female reader, Honeypie United States + , writes (12 April 2018):

Honeypie agony auntYes, men can carry HPV for instance and unless they have the "warts" type it doesn't show up on a test. Also... a STD panel doesn't test for EVERY STD. and if they have the "non-warts type" it puts YOU at risk for a the type that can cause cancer. So yeah... YOU can catch stuff.

Why are you having unprotected sex?

Using condoms is NOT that hard. (pun intended)

It makes absolutely NO sense to not use protection. Not just for YOUR sake but for theirs as well.

Are these men having sex with other people too?

A male reader, anonymous, writes (12 April 2018):

You can get an STD from anyone, and you can transmit an STD from one sex partner to another.

Are each of your partners aware of the other's existence? They both certainly have the right to know if they are having unprotected sex with a partner who is not monogamous.

aunt honesty agony auntOff course you are at risk. Just because they had a clean bill of health doesn't mean that they are not having sex with someone else unprotected at the moment. You should always use protection for your own health. Also if you are being passed around between them both like a piece of meat what will you do if you get pregnant?
