How to prevent STDs

1. What is an STD?

STD stands for sexually transmitted disease.

An STD is a disease you can get by having sex with someone who has one. You do not have to have sexual intercourse to get an STD, either. You can get STDs from oral sex, anal sex, or from rubbing naked against someone who is infected. STDs include:

· Gonorrhea

· Chlamydia

· Genital herpes

· Genital warts (HPV)

· Syphilis


2. What Are the Symptoms of STD ?

Sometimes, there are no symptoms of STDs. If symptoms are present, they may include one or more of the following:

· Bumps, sores, or warts near the mouth, anus, penis, or vagina.

· Swelling or redness near the penis or vagina.

· Skin rash.

· Painful urination.

· Weight loss, loose stools, night sweats.

· Aches, pains, fever, and chills.

· Yellowing of the skin (jaundice).

· Discharge from the penis or vagina. Vaginal discharge may have an odor.

· Bleeding from the vagina other than during a monthly period.

· Painful sex.

· Severe itching near the penis or vagina.

3.How Do I Know If I Have an STD?

Talk to your doctor. He or she can examine you and perform tests to determine if you have an STD. Treatment can:

· Cure many STDs

4. How To prevent getting a STD?

· No sex or sexual relations (abstinence) is the only sure way to prevent STDs.

· Use a latex condom every time you have sex. (If you use a lubricant, make sure it is water-based.)

· Limit your number of sexual partners. The more partners you have, the more likely you are to catch an STD.

· Practice monogamy. This means having sex with only one person. That person must also have sex with only you to reduce your risk.

· Choose your sex partners with care. Don't have sex with someone whom you suspect may have an STD. And keep in mind that you can't always tell by looking if your partner has an STD.

· Get checked for STDs. Don't risk giving the infection to someone else.

· Don't use alcohol or drugs before you have sex. You may be less likely to use a condom if you are drunk or high.

· Know the signs and symptoms of STDs. Look for them in yourself and your sex partners.

· Learn about STDs. The more you know, the better you can protect yourself.

5. If I were infected, how do I prevent spreading the disease?

· Stop having sex until you see a doctor and are treated.

· Follow your doctor's instructions for treatment.

· Use condoms whenever you have sex, especially with new partners.

· Don't resume having sex unless your doctor says it's OK.

· Return to your doctor to get rechecked.

· Be sure your sex partner or partners also are treated.
