Potential Transmission Of Venereal Disease After Petting With Complete Clothing?
Good morning a doctor’s style. U003cbr u003eI am a 25 year old woman. I once made a mistake doing something out of bounds with my girlfriend. Several times we kissed until we did petting, but not until penetration, and we were still dressed, not directly touching the genitals. Now I am sorry, and determined not to do it again. I am worried, and what I want to ask is whether our actions can cause us to become infected with venereal disease? Please answer.
Good evening MJPLG, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Basically, transmission of sexually transmitted infections can only occur if there is sexual contact (or it can also be genitals with the mouth or anus) without being obstructed by anything, including clothing. Transmission can also only occur if one of the partners or both of them has been infected with the disease first. Based on your statement above, then you and your partner will not be infected with sexually transmitted diseases because even though you say you have sex contact, these contacts do not occur directly. Please note that bacteria or viruses that cause sexually transmitted infections cannot penetrate clothing to cause an infection.
Henceforth, although this does not cause a sexually transmitted infection, it is advisable not to do it again if you are not ready for the consequences that can occur, especially if there is direct genital contact without any protection, because this can lead to transmission of venereal disease and even can also cause a small possibility of pregnancy even though there is no penetration.
