No STD cannot be passed by swimming in a pool It can only be transmitted by infected blood,infected mother transmitting to the baby,by infected syringes.

It would be very rare to contract an STD through use of a swimming pool. The concern of trasmitting an STD in a pool setting would be through use of towels and other personal items where bodily fluids could pass from one person to another. A person that has open sores, of any kind, should not get in a pool.

Absolutely not. Pool water is highly chlorinated and contains many chemicals, thus prohibits the possibility of passing an STD to someone else.

No, no, no, and no some more! Transferring STDs requires physical contact between two people. You can not get nor pass on a sexually transmitted disease simply by swimming in a pool!
