Thanks for your answers
It's not a stupid question
STDs don't just develop out of thin air.. if there is no exposure, there is no STD. I have to say that I doubt you were tested for every single STD out there. Were you really tested for HIV, hepatitis, HPV, chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes, etc? (There is no test for high risk HPV in a man, by the way, so you have no way of knowing if your boyfriend is infected.) Also, you could have been tested too early for some diseases.. not everything gives a positive test result soon after exposure. My answer is yes, you could still catch something.
