How To Prevent STIs
Using condoms every time you have vaginal, oral, or anal sex – from start to finish– reduces the risk of STIs. If you or your partner tests positive for a STI, you should avoid having sex until you’ve both been treated and the infection is gone. The surest way to avoid transmission of STIs is to not have sexual contact of any kind (abstinence). You can reduce your risk of getting an STI by being in a long-term mutually monogamous relationship with a partner who has been tested and is known to be uninfected. Reducing your number of sex partners can also decrease your risk for STIs.
