Hello and welcome to HCM.

There is a chance of the spread of a sexual transmitter infection only during direct contact, although there have been reported cases of transmission of infection through just the exchange of bodily fluids or shedding of skin from the affected area coming in contact with the genitals of a healthy individual (although extremely rare and unlikely).

It would be best to get yourself tested at regular intervals for the first 2-4 weeks. Please report any new symptoms to the doctor at the earliest.

Best wishes.

i dont think you could catch anything with just having had switched undergarments. to be sure you should get checked within 2weeks jus to be sure. If you start to feel a drip of discharge drip out the vagina unnormally, or have a wierd greyish, greenish, reddish odor or puss when you whip to go pee you may have one of those. Also pain as in burning, itching, swelling you may for sure have one... if none of those occur you should be fine...although some men and woman do not have symptoms ever
