Because being well-prepared is being well-informed, that’s all you need to know about sexually transmitted diseases: mode of contamination, symptoms, treatments... let’s take stock!
If you do not use condom in a sexual relationship.
If you have unprotected oral-genital relationships – contact of the mouth with the genital organs of the penis, vulva or anus.
If you don’t use condoms with all your sexual partners.
If you share drug injection or inhalation equipment (seringues, straws etc.)
If you pick up an unsafe used syringe.
If you are tattooing or drilling with a needle that is not new, already used or not sterilized.
THE PARTAGE OF OBJECTS
If you share personal items like your razor, your toothbrush, your sex toys, etc. that may have been in contact with secretions or contaminated blood.
Don’t forget that the only effective means to protect yourself from sexually transmitted infection are male condoms and female condoms!
Regardless of the infection it is not easy to admit it, and it may sometimes take time to announce it to its partner, but it is very important to talk about it quickly in order to reduce the risk of transmission and create a climate conducive to a healthy and sustainable relationship.
