If you are going planning to have sex of all types with a new partner, oral, vaginal, and anal, is there any way of examing that person to determine they are disease free? Or do you just say I see no sores anywhere I will take my chances?

The only way to know for sure is to have that person get a full STD testing including a type specific igg blood test to know what there herpes status is.That is the only way to knowfor sure. Otherwise you could open yourself up to all kinds of STD'S

Well, one could could consider a full body condom but realistically, appropriate testing is the only way to know ones status in regards to these matters....along with adequate latex condom use for STD's that do not have adequate testing methods (HPV testing in males, for example).

If you have never hdd any sexual relationships then you do not need to get tested. But if you have been sexually active fefore this person you need to get a full STD testing including testing herpes for both types as most DTD testing does not include these. So if you and your partner should go together to get tested. That way both of you will know your full STD status.

Tjanks Gail... A full body condom does not sound like fun at all.
