Question: Hi! One week ago I had unprotected sex for about 30 seconds of vaginal penetration. He didn%E2%80%99t ejaculate on me, nevertheless I%E2%80%99m worried about STDs. One doctor told me that if he didn%E2%80%99t had any open sores I shouldn%E2%80%99t get worried because chances of contracting an STF would be low, is this true ?

Brief Answer:
Yes, to some extent, it is true.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Thanks for trusting us about your healthcare.
I have gone through your query and understand your concern.

As he did not ejaculate and had no sore on it, the chances of STD are very low in your case because chances of contact through semen is very low.

But there is still a chance of STDs due to precum.
So, to be absolutely certain, I'd suggest getting yourself tested for STD panel and HIV testing.

Hope you found this useful, feel free to ask for more information.

Good luck
Regards
