Sexually transmitted diseases like Syphilis, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, herpes, and HIV can be passed not only through sexual activity, but also during pregnancy, through IV needle sharing, skin-to-skin contact, or breastfeeding.
STDs can be spread through any form of sexual activity. Current STD facts indicate that Syphilis, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, and HIV are most commonly passed through body fluids. Although diseases such as HIV, Gonorrhea, Syphilis and Chlamydia are spread through body fluids, Herpes and other STDs are spread through skin-to-skin contact. Condoms are an effective resource for preventing the spread of STDS, but they do not completely eliminate the possibility of transmission.
The most alarming aspect of current New York STD facts is that many sexually transmitted diseases exhibit no signs or symptoms. If you are a New York area resident who is concerned that you may have contracted an STD, the only way to determine whether or not transmission has actually occurred is through a simple STD test.
