How can I reduce my risk of getting an STD?

Here are a few things to help reduce your risk.

  1. Abstinence, which means not having ANY vaginal, anal, or oral sex.
  2. Use condoms or dental dams the right way, every time you have sex.
  3. Have one un-infected partner who only has sex with you.
  4. Avoid alcohol or drug use because they may lead to risky sexual behavior.
  5. Talk to your partner(s) about their sexual history.
