    Me and my boyfriend have recently become sexually active. It is our first time for everything (first kiss, sex, oral). Could I get an STD from him even if it's his first time too?

    You can orally transmit numerous types of STIs. Of you're concerned then get checked.

    While more unlikely, yes. You should use a condom, male or female, to help protect yourselves. Some STDs and STIs can be contracted in ways that aren't sexual, too. It's recommended that you use condoms for the first 6 months of your sexual relationship and you both get fully tested in that time, and if you're both clear at the end of that 6 months then there is a low risk of transmission and, if you like, you can consider going without the physical barrier (although I'd personally recommend using it continuously anyway)

    I just took the chance in mine :3 it was my first time, and although it wasn't hers she'd been careful in the past so chances should be low... ah well it's been 2 and a half weeks and I haven't died yet we'll wait and see :lol:

    Chances are very less that it will happen but you should be careful and use protection and if you are still concerned about it, get yourself checked.

    You can't pass on anything you haven't got. So unless you've got something like HSV non-sexually - plenty of children get it, from things like being kissed by (grand)parents - you're fine.
