Hi Anon

Thank you for your post! 

HIV is transmitted via bodily fluids like semen, vaginal secretions and blood. It is also transmitted via infected needles. 

It can remain undetected for up to 3 months. 

Other STIs and STDs can be transmitted via bodily fluids like chlamydia and gonorrhea and HPV, the virus that causes genital warts, happen via skin to skin contact, not sexual intercourse. 

Many men have no signs of having HPV or other diseases but they can still transfer them to their partners. 

You can read all about STI's here:


We cannot tell you if you have been infected with anything - just that the risk is there. 

I hope this helps!
