Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDS) are diseases acquired from one person to another through the transmission of blood, semen and other bodily secretions during sexual activity. While some STDs can be cured with specially designed antibiotics, most others such as the HIV, genital herpes, and human papillomavirus are incurable, and imply further diseases and medical conditions such as AIDS from HIV, and other STDs causing infertility or pelvic inflammation.

STDs are a long-standing and increasingly prevalent health concern worldwide and anyone can get it. Needless to say, one can never be too careful when it comes to having protected sex all the time.

Abstinence from sex remains the number 1 prevention against STDs. However, people who have active sexual lives can still do it and be safe. The following points are very important regarding protection from STDs.

Know Your Partner. Before having sex with anyone, whether or not you have known him for a long time, it is most practical to know whether or not he has an STD in whichever stage of the disease. Until he gets it cured (if he does have one), you should not have sex with this person.

Know Yourself. Whether or not you have sex within a monogamous relationship, you must always check your body for signs and symptoms of STDs. If you do have one, you must get professional attention immediately and abstain from sex with anyone until you are sure not to infect them and further spread STDs.

Engage In Sexual Relationships With Only One Person At A Time. When you have more than one sex partner at a time, your chances for acquiring STDs are higher, as well as you spreading infections you may not be aware of. But when you and your partner are exclusive, you can be more secure that you won’t get any STD.
