How to Lower Risks by Using Safer Sex?

Safe sex using a condom eliminates the fear of unwanted pregnancy and STIs/STDs and results in uninhibited pleasurable sex. Condoms should be used for all forms of sex- vaginal, anal or oral. One way to have safer sex is to only have one partner who has no sexually transmitted infections, and no other partners than you.

But this isn't always the safest kind of safer sex. Because most people don't know when they have infections. So they can spread STDs without knowing it. And not everyone is honest about their STD status, either. This is the reason why it’s a good idea to get tested for STDs regularly. It’s even better to go with your partner and get tested together, so you know each other’s status.

Some STDs have specific things you can do to decrease your risk. Like you can get the HPV vaccine to protect against the types of HPV that most commonly cause cancer. If you are at very high risk for HIV (like if your partner has HIV), you can talk with a doctor or nurse about using Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP). This pill can lower your risk of getting HIV if you take it every day.

It's also important to consider other ways to practice safer sex. There are kinds of sex that don’t spread STDs. And there are kinds of sex that have a very low risk of spreading STDs. You may want to think about avoiding vaginal and anal intercourse which have the highest risk of passing STDs and sticking to other, safer kinds of sex.
