Protecting your partner from sexually transmitted diseases is like protecting yourself. Here are some precautions you can take to avoid STIs.
how to Have safe sex?
Sexually transmitted diseases known today as sexually transmitted diseases (STIs) are diseases that affect the male and female reproductive organs. These are diseases that are spread through unprotected sex between an infected person and a healthy person. Venereal diseases are very common and some of them can be very dangerous if not treated properly and in time. These diseases are caused by microorganisms that enter the body through sexual fluids. Among these microorganisms, it is possible to name bacteria, viruses, parasites, or even fungi.
The most effective way to protect yourself from STDs is to use a condom. The condom can be male or female. They are usually made of latex, a water-resistant material that allows sexual fluids not to mix and thus not to transmit germs that cause STDs. Condom use also protects against unwanted pregnancy. However, you should be careful about using condoms. This is because condoms that are past their expiration date can become porous. The deteriorating state of the condom deprives it of its protective capabilities and its use becomes unnecessary. Porous condoms and condoms of the wrong size can also tear and allow sexually transmitted infections to be transmitted. It is important to note that intercourse must be responsible actions in order to protect the partner(s).
There are more than 30 STDs listed. Some are more common than others and some can be very serious. For example, chlamydia is an STD that can cause infertility in an infected person. Even more serious STDs such as AIDS can directly affect the immune system and cause death. This is why it is necessary to get tested for STDs.
Getting tested regularly allows you to protect yourself and your partner. Testing is recommended if there are multiple partners. It’s also best to get tested before you stop using condoms for unprotected sex with a regular partner.
STD screening does not treat STDs. However, the examination of these diseases can reveal their presence in the body and immediately start appropriate treatment.
You have to Follow the treatments prescribed by the doctors
In the case of an STD, the doctor prescribes treatment for the affected person. This treatment should be taken literally and not deviated. In fact, some of these diseases have few or no symptoms. It may be natural to think that the disease is no longer present in the body. This error should be avoided. Untreated or poorly treated STIs can develop quickly. The effects of an STI can be immediate or delayed. However, treatments prescribed by doctors such as antibiotics or vaccination are necessary to completely get rid of all germs that could be responsible for STIs.
You have to Warn your partner about the dangers!
By having unprotected sex, everyone is at risk of contracting an STD. In the face of these diseases, protecting yourself is protecting others. Conversely, protecting others is tantamount to protecting oneself. That’s why it’s always best to tell your partner about the risks of STDs.
Communication between sexual partners is essential to maintaining good health and avoiding all risks of infection. It is also essential to take responsibility and empower others by getting tested and urging your partner to do the same to remove all doubts, or if this is not the case, to start treatment quickly.
