Can someone transmit an STI through sex (protected or unprotected), if neither the person nor their partner has an STI? Both parties have been tested and given the "green light."

Let's look at this logically.

STI's are sexually transmitted diseases. One has to have an infectious disease to be able to pass it on to another person. If neither partner has an STI/STD, they cannot pass something on that they themselves do not have. The diseases don't just magically appear because a couple is having sex.

So the answer would be "no".

So, diseases such as: HPV, Trichomoniasis, Epididymitis?
georgiagail replied to xman2007la's response:
Epididymitis can be caused by a bacterial infection that is not linked to an STD.
