Question:

"If two men both test clean for STDs, can they have sex without condoms without worrying about getting an STD?"

Response:

Thank you for the question. Let's discuss a few scenarios here.

In the scenario you describe, both of these men can probably practice unprotected sex without having to worry about spreading or contracting STDs. However, there are some things to take into account.

First of all, how long ago were these men tested? The results of an STD test can change during a person's next sexual encounter. If both men have abstained from sexual activities since their last test, then they can likely engage in sexual activities with each other without having to worry about health implications.

The second thing to consider is what all they were tested for when they got their STD tests. A lot of people just get tested for chlamydia and gonorrhea. This is because they are the two most common STDs. However, there are many other STDs out there that they may have tested positive for if they had gone in for a more in-depth test.

The best idea is always to practice safe sex.
