Posted on Mon, 15 May 2017
Question: My question is a bit personal. So if my previous partners told me they had no type of STD and had unprotected sex am I at risk of getting an STD If I had unprotected sex with different people who said they were STD clean?

Detailed Answer:
Hello! I have been through your question.

Related your concern I think that there is no risk to get STD from unprotected sex with partners that have not STD (confirmed by the tests).
But this depends all in their honesty and if they don't know for some STI (if they have not been tested) that sometimes have no symptoms like HSV2, HPV and HIV etc.
So, I suggest to see your STD tests results to be more confident to say that you are free of STD.

I hope my answer helps you.
Regards.
