  • STD Testing

    Hello Doctors,

    Recently, I've met a partner with unknown status and she gave me a handjob. During the handjob, she spit on her hand to lubricate my penis.

    What are the risks of STD infections? Do I need to get tested? If so, how long do I need to wait before getting tested?

    Hi peterlow0775,

    This risk is very very low.

    If you are still keen to get tested, the window period for STDs is about 1 month, so get tested 1 month after exposure.

    Regards

      Hi Doctor,

      Thanks for your reply. What are the STDs that I am at risk of? Which STDs should I test for one month post exposure? I understand that a Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea test can be done with no window period?

        Hi Peterlow0775,

        It's probably very low risk for all STDs, maybe slightly higher for Herpes.

        You might want to discuss that with your doctor instead of asking over the forums.

        Regards
