[Question #1395] Can You Get STD if your touch tongues tip on finger that has sperm afterhandjob?

46 months ago
Hello..three months back I gave my husband handjob then after few seconds I went to bathroom and here was sperm on my fingers and I touched my tongue's tip on my finger to know the sperm's taste but I immediately spit it out and then washed my mouth with anti bacterial handwash thoroughly many times...My question is is there chance of getting STD like HPV or any other?..
I'm worried and husband says nothing to worry..he says you cant get std like this because sperm was on finger before my tongue touched it so it was indirect contact..What you think Doctor? my husband never had any other sexual partners before me..and I have no symptoms of any stds

Welcome to our Forum.  I'm not sure of the basis of your question.  Are their other concerns or details that you have not mentioned?

This was a virtually no risk event.  First, I presume that there is little risk that your husband has an STI, thus there is little risk of acquisition.  Further, most STIs, when present are spread by direct contact and indirect contact such as transfer of genital secretions from one person to another on the hands (including to their mouth) is considered safe sex, i.e. no risk.  This is due both to the mechanics of the transfer process which result in less material being transferred at each step as well as the fact that the organisms which cause STIs become non-infectious almost immediately upon exposure to the environment.  Finally, STIs do not infect the surface of the tongue but rather the cells at the back of the throat.

For all of these reasons I would suggest that what you describe was a no risk event which should not concern you.  I see no need for STI testing related to the events you describe.  EWH

So no need to worry of std risk if ejaculation passes to finger and then directly to mouth?  also I kissed his penis through his underwear is that a risk? Thanks a lot for taking to answer Doctor and thanks for easing my worries of std

Final Question is it safe if he had ejaculated on my breast? i already had  very small pimple on my chest...so, can sperm enter through the pimple or skin crack to cause std? that was the final question thank you for your time..have a nice day kind doctor..

No getting your partner's ejaculate on your breast even with a pimple present would not put you at risk for STI.
