Did you know?

STDs are caused by bacteria or viruses that are transmitted from person to person through oral, anal, or vaginal sex. Because of the high risk of reinfection, STDs are not considered to be fully treated until all exposed sex partners are treated.

If you are sexually active, using condoms is the best way to protect yourself from STDs and pregnancy.
