This is true for all types of sex — oral, vaginal, and anal.
In order for these exams and visits to the doctor to be helpful, people need to tell their doctors if they are thinking about having sex or if they have already started having sex.
If someone is going to have sex, the best way to reduce the chance of getting an STD is by using a condom every time (or a dental dam when a girl is receiving oral sex).
People who are considering having sex should get regular gynecological or male genital examinations. First, these exams give doctors a chance to teach people about STDs and protecting themselves.
Guys may worry about bumps on the penis that turn out to be pimples or irritated hair follicles.
That's why it's important to see a doctor if you ever have questions about your sexual health.
