It's incredibly unlikely you could contract an STD from sharing shisha. From here https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/e...someones-drink : "If you're concerned that you've swapped spit with someone who has an STD, you can probably rest easy. Saliva itself has antiviral properties, Handsfield notes, and you probably wouldn't be exposing yourself to high enough quantities of microbes to put yourself at risk. Even when it comes to oral herpes, Handsfield says you're likely in the clear. "With emphasis on 'theoretically,' maybe [transmission] could happen," he says. "But it is exceedingly unlikely, maybe no risk at all. If mentioned at all, the main point should be 'don't worry about it.'"

So I really wouldn't worry
