Can you get an STD even if both partners don't have one?

Yes, it is possible to contract a sexually transmitted disease (STD) even if both partners have no known STDs. This is because many people with STDs do not show symptoms, so they may not be aware that they have an infection with asymptomatic STDs (Mayo Clinic). Even with no symptoms, however, you can pass the infection to your sex partners.

Here are some reasons why this can happen🔍:

  1. Incorrect assumptions about STDs: Just because a person does not have any symptoms does not mean they are free from STDs. Many STDs can be asymptomatic, meaning that a person can carry and spread the infection without knowing it.

  2. New infections: A person can contract an STD from a new partner even if they have not had any previous STDs.

  3. Lack of protection: Engaging in sexual activity without using protection, such as condoms, can increase the risk of contracting STDs.

  4. Multiple partners: Having multiple sexual partners increases the risk of exposure to STDs.

Importance of safe sex

It's important to practice safe sex, such as using condoms, to reduce the risk of contracting STDs. Regular testing is also key to detecting STDs early on and reducing the potential for long-term health problems.
