“Can you get an STD if you have sex but the guy pulls out?”
Yep. It’s possible to get a sexually transmitted infection even if your partner doesn’t ejaculate inside your vagina.
STDs can be transmitted through semen, but there are a lot of other ways they can be spread, including contact with vaginal fluid, pre-cum, open cuts or sores, and skin-to-skin contact. This makes the pullout method pretty ineffective way to prevent many STDs. 1 in 4 people that use this method will eventually get pregnant.
Condoms are a really good way to prevent the transmission of STDs. If you’re in Mississippi and you need free condoms, visit any MS Health Department Clinic.
