    I listed these STDs below (along with others). I was wondering if anyone on this site has contracted anything after using condoms? Care to share your experience or someone you know?


    SYPHILIS
    Living With It: Itchy. Then 15 years later you go insane and kill yourself… (no, seriously.)
    Curable: Yes
    Condom Protects: No


    HPV (HIGH-RISK STRAINS)
    Living With It: A nuisance. A few years of awkward conversations.
    Curable: No, but it typically leaves on its own after a few years. There is also a vaccine.
    Condom Protects: No


    GENITAL HERPES
    Living With It: There’s a good chance you already have it.
    Curable: No, but who cares?
    Condoms Protect: No


    CHLAMYDIA
    Living With It: Uncomfortable… especially when they stick a cotton swab up your peehole. Then you take some pills and it’s gone.
    Curable: Yes (2-4 Weeks)
    Condom Protects: Yes


    GONORRHEA
    Living With It: Painful. Hope for no pus. Then you take some pills and it’s gone.
    Curable: Yes (within a month)
    Condom Protects: Yes


    HIV
    Living With It: You may become decrepit and bankrupt. But you’ll probably live.
    Curable: No
    Condoms Protect: Yes

    There are only 6 STDs?! And condoms protect against the worst three?!

    Who cares? No, we probably don't have it, And I care. What a ridiculous thing to say.

    That's exactly what I was thinking. A lot of people have oral herpes (or cold sores), but most of us don't have genital herpes.

    Actually, one can contract genital herpes (HSV-2) or oral herpes (HSV-1) in either area and they present the same types of symptoms. Also, condoms may not 100% protect you from contracting HSV, it does reduce the risk of infection significantly especially if the infected party does not present with sores (outbreak) during a sexual encounter. Also, the CDC states there are a large number of people in the U.S. that has this virus and do not know it because they've never had an outbreak. A little known fact is the only certain way to ascertain if someone has it is if they're tested during an outbreak. Blood tests are inaccurate at times and results in false positives or negatives.

    Yes, and point being, from your own link even, is that less than 1/5 people have genital herpes. So my point remains - most of us do NOT have it. I also don't want it and saying "who cares" is ridiculous (pertaining to the OP).

    I wouldn't say condoms don't protect against HPV. HPV is contracted by skin-to-skin contact - an infected area of skin comes into direct contact with an uninfected area of skin. A condom will protect the areas of your penis that it is covering, so in that sense a condom can protect you. But the base of your penis and your general crotch area are still fair game for infection if they're not covered.

    Some strains of HPV cause warts. They're highly contagious and very annoying to get rid of. Some strains of HPV can cause cervical cancer in women and can cause anal cancer in MSM (men who fuck other men).

    HPV is so common among sexually active people (something like 80+% of sexually active people will have it at some point in their life) that many STI testing clinics assume you already have it. Or they aren't overly concerned that you have it unless you have an outbreak of warts or they have some reason to believe you're at risk for cancer...at least that's been the attitude of the clinics I've been to for my regular testing.

    i would also add that you can get gonorrhea of the throat from oral sex. so unless, you're using a condom during oral sex icon_rolleyes.gif, you still have to worry about it.

    I don't think it was very serious when it was said... It meant it was fairly common and not that it was literally more than half the population.

    I'm not quite sure if you are saying that HPV and HSV are the same thing. Clearly they are not. Even among HPV, there are a variety of subtypes, some can lead to cancer, others not so much.

    On the broader issue of condom use: Let's face it, most folks don't use condoms for oral sex, but several of these can be spread orally. Ever heard of oral gonorrea? Didn't think so...

    Agreed. Neither of us were arguing anything that you were saying, blasian--although that was good info. We were arguing the OP's assertion that most people have genital herpes, which is entirely false.

    Yes I agree, the "who cares" commit was/is ridiculous. However, 1/5 is high (and remember, that 1/5 are those reported.)
