Disease prevention and treatment

18+ if you ever made love without protection, this is for you

Please if you are not married and you still sex without a condom please its very dangerous because you may never know your sex partners too well and how many people aside you also have sex with them.

Please Read this

1. The risk of STI transmission is higher with condomless sex

Using condoms during sex reduces the risk of transmission of most STIs, including HIV, gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, and certain types of hepatitis.


2. STI risk varies with number of sex partners

The risk of contracting an STI is higher for people who have multiple sexual partners. Individuals can reduce the risk by using condoms consistently and by getting tested for STIs before each new partner


3. Having an STI increases the chances of contracting HIV

The risk of contracting HIV is higher for people living with an STI, particularly syphilis, herpes, or gonorrhea.

STIs cause inflammation that can activate the same immune cells HIV likes to attack, and allow the virus to replicate more quickly. STIs can also cause sores that make it easier for HIV to enter the bloodstream.


4. The risk of HIV transmission is higher with condomless sex

HIV can be transmitted via the mucous membranes of the penis, vagina, and anus. It can also potentially be transmitted through cuts or sores on the mouth or other areas of the body

5. Some types of sex carry a higher risk of HIV transmission

The likelihood of HIV being transmitted during sex varies depending on the type of sex involved. For example, the level of risk is different for anal sex compared to oral sex.

HIV is most likely to be transmitted during anal sex without a condom. That’s because the lining of the anus is more prone to rips and tears. This can allow HIV to enter the bloodstream. The risk is higher for the person receiving anal sex, sometimes called “bottoming.”


6. For some, pregnancy is a risk with condomless sex

For couples who are fertile and engaging in “penis-in-vagina” sex, having sex without a condom increases the risk of an unplanned pregnancy.

7. Birth control pills don’t protect against STIs

The only forms of birth control that prevent against STIs are abstinence and condoms. Birth control methods like the pill, the morning-after pill, IUDs, and spermicide don’t prevent the transmission of viruses or bacteria.

So if you are not married and still have sex without a condom you might be exposing your self to danger because you might not know the state of health of your sex partner. So many people out there sleep around and transfer diseases from one person to another, dont be a victim, always practice safe sex, use a condom.
