…..then I had sex with someone different yesterday without a condom. Could I have something?
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
- 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.
Unprotected sex does cause a risk of STI transmission. It is always a good idea to communicate with partners about STIs, and to use a barrier method like a condom to reduce the risk of STI transmission.
The only way someone can know if they have an STI is to get tested. If you want to make an appointment at Teen Clinic for testing, you can give us a call at 303-442-5160
