Can you get a STD from just having a penis inside you? No fluids were exchanged or anything and there are no symptoms but I still worry. Should I get checked?


You can get an STD anytime there is genital contact without a condom, dental dam, or other barrier. Genital skin and pre-cum can carry STDs, and many people don’t get symptoms right away, or at all. So if a penis was inside of you without a condom on, you should get checked. You can get tested for STDs at your nearest Planned Parenthood health center.
