Sex and Health

Even with 100% condom use, STI risk is not totally eliminated.

“When you have sex with someone, you are having sex with everyone they have had sex with for the last ten years, and everyone they and their partners have had sex with for the last ten years.” ~ C. Everett Koop, M.D., former U.S. Surgeon General


The Center for Disease Control recommends screening whenever you are exposed to:

  • A new sexual partner
  • Partners of infected people
  • Intrvenous (IV) drug users

Prevention
Abstaining from sex is the only way to be 100 percent confident that you will avoid a Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD).

“Prevention through avoiding exposure is the best strategy for controlling the spread of sexually transmitted diseases. Proper use of condoms with each sexual intercourse experience can reduce but not eliminate the risk of STDs.” ~ Center for Disease Control
