STD Infomation

Sexually transmitted diseases like Syphilis, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, herpes, and HIV can be shared not only through sexual activity, but also during pregnancy, through IV needle sharing, skin-to-skin contact, or breastfeeding.

Any kind of sexual activity can potentially transmit STDs from one person to another. 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 reduce the transmission of STDs, but they are not foolproof.

One of the most alarming aspects of current Austin STD facts is that many sexually transmitted diseases exhibit no signs or symptoms. If you are a Austin 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.
