  1. Use a condom every time you have sexual intercourse.
    • Latex condoms offer the best protection against sexually transmitted infections for people having sexual intercourse.
  2. Talk with your partners before the heat of passion.
    • Partners should care about each other and be interested in one another’s pleasure, comfort, and health.
    • Be open. Let your partner know your health concerns and sexual health history, and encourage your partner to be open, too.
    • Be direct. Talk about your sexual needs and expectations.
    • Be persistent. Don’t let your partner remain silent on these issues.
  3. Keep medically fit.
    • Have a checkup for sexually transmitted infections every year.
    • Protect your immune system. Eat well, get enough rest, and limit your use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs.
  4. If you think you or your partner has a sexually transmitted infection…
    • See a clinician for testing, diagnosis, and treatment.
    • Find out if your partner(s) need to be examined and treated, too.
    • Use all the medication that is prescribed-symptoms often disappear before an infection is cured.
    • Do not take anyone else’s medicine, and do not share yours.
    • Do not have sex until your infection is under control.
  5. Stay in charge.
    • Alcohol and other drugs weaken good judgment and self-control. Don’t let them jeopardize your self-control.

Remember: Protecting yourself against sexually transmitted infections can reduce anxiety and make sex a lot more enjoyable. Reduce Your Risk…Use a Condom Every Time!
