After a busy day that ended in a bar or a party to celebrate a new business deal, you woke up in an unfamiliar bed with someone you barely knew. A one-night stand. This is how it works. Several drinks or a naughty surprise from your friends has brought you to this point, and it seems you had unprotected intercourse with a person of unknown STD status. Worrisome, right? The risk of acquiring specific STDs from one instance of protected homosexual sex. Condoms are highly effective in protecting against HIV, gonorrhea, and chlamydia STDs that are transmitted through body fluids. Condoms are somewhat protective against HPV, syphilis, and herpes, which can be transmitted through skin-to-skin contact.
Accordingly, you had sex without using a condom or other barrier method. Perhaps you forgot about the whole condom thing in the heat of the moment, or maybe the condom slipped or broke. These things happen, after that they can be scary AF. You might be worried about pregnancy before a sexually transmitted infection STI before both. In the moments after femininity without a condom or other barricade method, understandably you might be anxious about having acquired an STI before unplanned pregnancy.
