STIs 101 (835 hits)

You may think you know all about STIs, but what you donít know could put you at risk. Take a few minutes and get the facts for a happier, healthier s*x life. If you are concerned about your s*xual health, discuss with your physician or doctor.

What is an STI?

STD stands for s*xually Transmitted Disease. These diseases are sometimes known as s*xually Transmitted Infections (STIs). An STI is any infection that is passed by body fluids during ******l, anal, or oral s*x. These fluids include semen (cum), ******l fluids (the wetness in the ******) and blood. A latex c*ndom acts as a barrier to prevent these fluids from being exchanged. But, an STI can also be spread by contact with the skin of the genital or anal area if infection is present. It can also be spread by contact inside of the mouth. If you are s*xually active, it is recommended that you are tested early and often for STIs.



Am I at risk for STIs?

If you are s*xually active you may be at risk for STIs. Remember, when you have s*x with someone, you are potentially exposed to STIs that anyone theyíve had s*x with before you may have had.

You may have heard them referred to by funny names, so to set the record straight, some common types of STIs, along with their associated symptoms and consequences, are listed below:

AIDS-HIV
(Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome/Human Immune-Deficiency Virus)
CHLAMYDIA
GONORRHEA
(Clap, Drip, GC)
HEPATITIS B VIRUS
(HBV)
(GENITAL) HERPES
SYPHILIS
(Syph, The Pox)
TRICHOMONIASIS
(Trich)
(GENITAL) WARTS
(HPV) Human Papillomavirus

If used properly, latex c*ndoms will help to reduce the risk of transmission of HIV infection (AIDS) and many other s*xually transmitted diseases.
