Last night I was dry humping with a girl, but there was a short period of time (5-10 seconds) of skin to skin contact in our genital areas, with no penetration. Should I be worried of any STD or am I just over worrying myself?? How long does it take for most symptoms to arise in STD's? I am very scared and am usually very cautious I just had this minor slip up. Can HIV be transmitted through this? Thank you
The main STDs that can be transmitted by mere skin-to-skin contact are herpes, genital warts and molluscum. If the girl didn't have any warts or sores in the area of skin you came into contact with, you are more likely, but not certain, to be OK. The latency period for genital warts can be months or years so the only way to tell for certain at this stage that you have not been infected is to get tested, but unless you get warts or sores yourself there would be little that could be done anyway.
HIV however is not transmitted by simple skin-to-skin contact.
Thank you, the reason I ask is because she was wet and my penis was in that general area, although never actually inside of her.... Also, this happened last night, and today I masturbated, and seemed to feel a slight discomfort at the tip of my penis during ejaculation, but part of me thinks its all in my head because i'm worrying. If it's not in my head, and it is an actual STD, is it normal to show signs 10 hours after my incident?
That's probably just worry.
