Hello,

My boyfriend and I always use condoms when we have sex, we were messing around the other night naked and we started rubbing on each other. I know that he didn't ejaculate in my vagina but he could have pre-ejaculated around it. What STI's am I at risk for if there was no actual intercourse?

Sincerly,

Unprotected sexual activity, in which ejaculate or pre-ejaculate comes into contact with the vulva, poses both high STI risks and moderate pregnancy risks. You don't need to have penetration or intercourse to constitute a risk.

So, both of you should schedule to have a full STI screening about a month from now, and a second screening about 6 months after that.

In the future, be sure you both also make sure you use condoms for ANY sexual activity, so you can be sure you're greatly minimizing any risk.
