Lets talk a little bit about STIs. STIs can be a very real risk for people if they are engaging in certain types of sexual contact. It’s good to know that when it comes to STIs there are four modes of transmission. They are…
- Sexual Fluids (Semen and Vaginal fluids)
- Skin to skin contact (genital to genital)
- And Mother to Child (Breastmilk and Vaginal Delivery)
In order for someone to contract an STI, they would need to engage in sexual activity with a person who already has an STI in which one or more of these modes would come into play. STI transmission is a low risk in this situation, because sexual fluids would need to come into contact with the genitals for transmission to happen.
If you think you are having symptoms of an STI you should see a medical professional. Give Teen Clinic a call if you would like to make an appointment. 303-442-5160
