Ooo, #70 I love this game... the whole "I say I'm a major in this, so I know more!" Last I checked, they taught this stuff in high school health classes. And by the way, it doesn't take an English major to read this post and realize that OP said "STD" and NOT crabs. So maybe lay off the whole "I'm right, you're wrong" thing... m'kay? Because you don't really have enough information to be calling us all assholes.

arin2009 - For all that is good, I sincerely hope you don't have experience in the medical field if you can't even take the time to spell out the words "because" and "you". I wouldn't want you touching or treating me if my life depended on it.

And you can get herpes and lices without even having sex. But most STD's are really sexual transmittable. Or that's atleast what they tought me. Oh, Arin2009, I thumbed you down not because you are wrong, but because you are so aggressive.

It could easily be chlamydia. Most men have no symptoms at all. Maybe his last girlfriend cheated on him or didn't know she had it either. Try not to judge before knowing the whole story! And OP, be thankful you're finding out now instead of later. :)

66: just because it's a "sexually transmitted disease" doesn't mean that's how he obtained it. There's plenty of ways. That just means that's how it's most commonly transmitted. Chicken pox is sexually transmitted as well but it's just a contact issue. Doesn't mean he's dirty necessarily. Everyone takes shit so literally.

I don't really want to get involved but it is possible to contract certain STD's without sexual contact. Sex is just the primary means of infection for those ailments

If op was born with it, he'd know. If he was sharing needles well then there's not a whole lot of sympathy for him... And if it's crabs, he probably wouldn't post it here, he'd just shave

There is no reason for you to be so ignorant and cocky at the same time. Most common STDs like HPV & herpes can be contracted from skin contact. The condom only covers so much skin.

Skin and fluids. If he's performing well, the condoms not gonna keep the rest of the pubic area dry. I think something like 1 in 4 people have hpv; it's that common. And in males symptomless. Assuming he didn't use a condom is just as ignorant as having careless sexual encounters.

Condoms only reduce the transmission of the organisms that cause AIDS, genital herpes, cervical cancer, genital warts, syphilis, chlamydia, gonorrhea, and a few other STI's. Although a condom is effective in limiting exposure, some disease transmission may occur even with a condom. Infectious areas of the genitals, especially when symptoms are present, may not be covered by a condom, and as a result, some diseases can be transmitted by direct contact. The primary effectiveness issue with using condoms to prevent STDs, however, is inconsistent use.

Negative! Warts and herpes get through for 2 reasons: 1, the cells are very tiny and more importantly 2, the infections are spread through skin contact, and the condom is only covering the shaft.

Wow you people are poorly educated. 81 is correct. Condoms can only guarantee limited exposure not preventing transmission. If your skin don't touch, and the condom don't break how is it supposed to spread? Plus only a very few stds are through contact. They are typically spread by fluids from the infected person entering into some kind of orifice on their partner! Which can be there without them even realizing it.

63- reread your comment and explain to me how that makes sense. It can stop AIDS, but gl stopping anything else? ey, wut? Condoms are meant as a preventative means to stop the spread of STDS and Babies. There is never a sure fire guarantee, but at least you have that chance of not catching that pesky gingivitis.
