Well okay--I have read lots of the boards and i have read many of the ones concerning blow jobs. They all say to use a condom and to not swallow. Well I didn't follow those guidelines. My boyfriend and I have never had any other sexual parteners. So could i still have gotten any stds or diseases? I am starting to get worried, but now there is nothing i cna do to change the fact, because I have given him a bj more than once. But I don't understand how i could have gotten any stds if none of us have ever been sexually active before--and we have not had sex either. So is there a chance I could have an std??
The thing about saying that you both have never been sexually active before, is that you can't know that for sure. It's nice to believe the person that you're in a relationship is telling you the truth, but until you have those test results -- twice --you really can't tell for sure (and even then, some doubt remains). Yes, it's possible that you picked up an STD or disease (incidentally, those are sort of the same things -- the 'd' in std stands for disease), yes, you should probably get yourself tested, and yes, you might want to avoid doing this sort of thing in the future. If neither of you have been sexually active before, there are still other things that one of you could have done to pick up a disease somewhere along the way. But, frankly, I think that if you both have never been sexually active before, it's somewhat unlikely that either of you have that much to worry about. Still, you can't be sure, and you might wat to take steps toward being sure, by getting a test done.

Remember not all STD's are transmitted sexually. Like HIV and such, some can be there from birth, y'know? But if you KNOW that you and your partner don't have STD's then there isn't anything you can get. But to know you'd usually need at least 2 STD tests.
Hey, take Mz Scarlet for an example. She and her HUSBAND have both tested clear and they're monogomas and married and they still use condoms. Better safe then sorry!

Well I know that none of us have been sexually active for sure. Cuz we were each others first kiss. And none of our parents have any stds. But is there still a risk??

While STDs can be transmitted by sexual activity, there's also other ways that they can be transmitted. They're just called STDs because the most common way that they're trasnmitted is through sexual activity.
For example, herpes ximplex (either oral or genital herpes) can be transmitted through skin to skin contact, particularly if it's mucous membranes or if you have broken or infected skin (like a small cut.) YOu can also transmit yeast and bacterial infections through skin to skin contact.
