If cuts on your freshly shaved pubes get infected, can you get an STD?

Patient: So I’m still a virgin. I’ve never been sexual before, but I was interested in feeling ‘smooth’ downstairs so I shaved my dangly bits. I nicked myself here and there.I’m curious – if I’ve never been sexual and don’t plan to be, can these cuts getting infected cause me to get an STD or STI?

 

 

Symptoms: bare, shave, shaving, STD
