How Can I Get An STI?
You can contract an STI through any type of sexual activity, such as vaginal, anal, and oral sex and genital touching. According to the Mayo Clinic, bacteria, viruses, or parasites that cause sexually transmitted diseases may pass from person to person in blood, semen, or vaginal and other bodily fluids.
Get Regularly Tested
Only regular testing will keep you and your partner(s) safe. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), one in five people (nearly 68 million) has an STI. In 2018 alone, there were 26 million new cases.
Can I Be Pregnant And Have An STD?
Unfortunately, you can be pregnant and have an STD at the same time. In fact, having an untreated STD while pregnant can cause serious harm to you and to your pregnancy.
If you have had unprotected sex with a high-risk partner or shared needles, it’s important to get tested immediately.
