I am a virgin, but I have had oral sex with my boyfriend. Is it possible for me to get an STD this way?

It is possible to contract an STD via oral, anal or vaginal sexual intercourse. Even though a woman has not had any penetration of the vagina or anus, there is a still a chance for her to get infected. The best advice is to use condoms for any mouth-to-penis contact and a latex dental dam for any mouth-to-vagina or –anus contact. It will act as a protective barrier and make sure that moisture from the vagina or anus does not get in contact with the partner’s mouth.
