    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    I Got Bump But Do You Think Its STD?
    ViciouzBarbie posted:
    this happened after i brushed my teeth and toothpaste/saliva splashed a little into nostril. if i had something inside my mouth, would it transmit into nostril? do u think its std or might be something else not related?
    ViciouzBarbie responded:
    for example lets say if inside mouth was type of std and splashed into nose, the saliva and toothpaste. would that transmit or no?
    Elle0317 replied to ViciouzBarbie's response:
    I'm sorry but how can you transmit an STD to yourself, if you already have it? STD's are Sexually Transmitted Diseases, brushing your teeth is not a sexual act, so you therefore you cannot contract an STD while doing that.
    ViciouzBarbie replied to Elle0317's response:
    lets say if someone else had std not me for example and had std or warts or some type of std inside his mouth. if his saliva got into my nose, it still wouldnt get transmitted?
    betsyo1967 replied to ViciouzBarbie's response:
    this still isn't a risk for you.
    Talking about std testing is NORMAL and something we all should be doing EVERY TIME before we have sex with a new partner :)
