Can I get an STD giving oral?

Yes, it’s totally possible to get an STD from having oral sex. Many STDs can be passed through fluid and skin-to-skin contact like herpes, hepatitis B, HPV, gonorrhea, and chlamydia.

The best ways to protect yourself against STDs are to use condoms and dental dams, and to get tested for STDs regularly. You can get tested at your local Planned Parenthood health center. Learn more about safer sex.
