You won’t get pregnant, but you could still get an STI or HIV if you’re not careful. For example, herpes is transmitted primarily through skin-to-skin contact, and it stays with you for the rest of your life. And you might not even know you have it for a long time.

The best way to be totally safe is to always wear a condom every time you have sex. Go to a health center and get tested. That will ensure you’re not passing on or receiving any unwelcome visitors. Also, if you ever have female partners, use a condom and make sure she’s on birth control.

You can get STI testing at a clinic near you.
