||Practising ‘Safer Sex’, by wearing a condom is
the most effective way of preventing sexually
transmitted infections (STI’s). It is important
to understand that there is no such thing as
‘Safe Sex’, using a condom each time you have
sex is the only way to ensure you are practicing
‘Safer Sex’. Also, it is not possible to be 100%
sure that a prospective sexual partner does not
have an undiagnosed or symptomless STI. The more
sexual partners that you have, the higher the
risk you run of contracting any STI’s.
Therefore, when you have a new partner, it is
always advisable, for you both to be tested for
STI’s before having sex.
