  • Don’t share needles and syringes used to inject drugs, steroids,
    vitamins, or for tattooing or body piercing. Also, don’t share
    equipment ("works") used to prepare drugs to be injected. Many
    people have been infected with HIV, hepatitis, and other germs
    this way. Germs from an infected person can stay in a needle and
    then be injected directly into the next person who uses the needle.
  • The surest way to avoid transmission of sexually transmitted
    diseases is to abstain from sexual intercourse, or to be in a
    longterm mutually monogamous relationship with a partner who has
    been tested and you know is uninfected.
  • For persons whose sexual behaviors place them at risk for STDs,
    correct and consistent use of the male latex condom can reduce
    the risk of STD transmission. However, no protective method is
    100 percent effective, and condom use cannot guarantee absolute
    protection against any STD. The more sex partners you have, the
    greater your chances are of getting HIV or other diseases passed
    through sex.
  • Condoms lubricated with spermicides are no more effective than
    other lubricated condoms in protecting against the transmission
    of HIV and other STDs. In order to achieve the protective effect
    of condoms, they must be used correctly and consistently. Incorrect
    use can lead to condom slippage or breakage, thus diminishing
    their protective effect. Inconsistent use, e.g., failure to use
    condoms with every act of intercourse, can lead to STD transmission
    because transmission can occur with a single act of intercourse.
  • Don’t share razors or toothbrushes because of the possibility
    of contact with blood.
  • If you are pregnant or think you might be soon, talk to a doctor
    or your local health department about being tested for HIV. Drug
    treatments are available to help you and reduce the chance of
    passing HIV to your baby if you have it.
