IndianapolisSTD facts make it clear that STDs can be contracted in a variety of ways. Syphilis, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, herpes, and HIV are often passed through sexual activity, pregnancy, 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 Syphilis, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, and HIV are spread through body fluids, Herpes and other STDs are spread through skin-to-skin contact. Condoms can minimize the risk of exposure, but they are not guaranteed to prevent the contraction of a STD.
Many STD cases exhibit negligible signs and symptoms. STD testing offers the only proven way for Marion County residents to assess their STD health status.
