Prevention of STIs

Sexual health guide - condoms
Condoms

The most effective means to avoid becoming infected with or transmitting a sexually transmitted infection is to abstain from sexual intercourse (i.e., oral, vaginal, or anal sex) or to have sexual intercourse only within a long-term, mutually monogamous relationship with an uninfected partner.

 

Male  condoms, when used consistently and correctly, are highly effective in reducing the transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections, including gonorrhoea, chlamydial infection and trichomoniasis.

 

A female condom is a thin sheath or pouch worn by a woman during sex. It entirely lines the vagina and helps to prevent pregnancy and STIs.

 

A Dental Dam is a latex barrier is an approximately 10 x 6 inch silky think sheet of natural latex.  When properly used dental dams may help reduce the risk of catching or spreading sexually transmitted infections (STIs) such as syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, genital herpes, genital warts and HIV. However they do not completely eliminate the risk.
