Preventing the Spread of STIs

Certain activities increase your risk of catching and spreading STIs:

  • having unprotected sex (oral, vaginal and/or anal)

  • sharing sex toys sharing needles, syringes or other drug use equipment ("works")

  • having more than one partner

  • having sex while under the influence of alcohol or drugs

  • having anonymous sex partners (from the Internet, bathhouses or raves)

The only 100 per cent way to prevent an STI is to practice abstinence (not have sex). Practicing "safer sex" which means always using a condom (for oral, anal and vaginal sex).
