DetroitSTD 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 HIV, Gonorrhea, Syphilis and Chlamydia are spread through body fluids, Herpes and other STDs are spread through skin-to-skin contact. Condoms can decrease the risk of exposure, but they are not guaranteed to prevent the contraction of a STD.
One of the most alarming aspects of current Detroit STD facts is that many sexually transmitted diseases exhibit no signs or symptoms. The only reliable method Detroit area residents have to assess their STD status is through STD testing.
