So kind of gross post but I am fu*king terrified of getting an std. my friend works at a women’s health center and tells me it’s crazy how common stds are, like people would be shocked. Also heard horror stories from my friends/parents about people they know who had the same partner since HS and then broke up, slept with another person once and BAM gential warts for life. I am so afraid that I’m 24 and haven’t ever had sex. Does anyone else have this fear?

Good to be wary of it but just always wear protection and in the event you take it off, make a good judgement call but be prepared for the worst. I’ve had a ton of sexual partners (60+), i mostly wear condoms depending on the lady but I’ve sometimes let my lust get in the way and slept with many women without it. Never had an std. it’s pot luck.

On a side note; I’m clean and Have test results in case you want to explore. NY based.

Keep in mind that genital warts are easily treated, and although it’s true that they can recur, many people have only one outbreak. So do take all sensible precautions, but if it happens, it’s really not the end of the world.

Just practice safe sex and sleep with people you trust.. no need to have one night stands if that’s uncomfortable for you. If you get into a relationship just ask them to get tested before.

While they’re all STDs or STIs, things like chlamydia and gonorrhea are treatable and are just antibiotics whereas herp and some warts are recurring.

Be safe but don't be too scared to never try! I have been with over 20 people and never an STD. Use common sense and you should be ok 😊 also if you've had the gardasil vaccine that protects against some strains of HPV. they pitch it as an anti-cancer vaccine but I think they should advertise its anti-genital warts properties too 😂

I’ve had sex with somewhere around 40-50 people. (Not entirely sure because I stopped counting.) I was inconsistent about using protection because I hated the way condoms felt. I got HPV along with 80% of sexually active people. The only reason I know about the HPV is because it came up on a Pap smear. Other than that, I have never gotten any STDs.

It’s a risk of being sexually active, but i don’t think it should prevent you from having a sex life. Use protection. If you want to be extra cautious, have your partner get tested before you have sex.

My friend got herpes from her boyfriend, who insist he doesn’t know he has it (has no symptoms). She was devastated.
She had a breakout and it was so miserable she wanted to die (multiple huge sores inside her vagina and her period came). She confessed to me she never wanted to date again if her and her boyfriend breaks up. She cannot imagine giving it to someone else and don’t think anyone will even want to be in a relationship with her if she tells them.
Please use protection. It’s a very reasonable ask.

Wow that must have been horrendous and so messy . Poor girl
