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.
Sacramento STD facts illustrate the fact that all types of sexual activity can spread STDs. Syphilis, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, and HIV transmissions are passed through bodily fluids. Other STDs like herpes move from person to person through surface contact. Condoms can reduce the transmission of STDs, but they are not foolproof.
The most alarming aspect of current Sacramento STD facts is that many sexually transmitted diseases exhibit no signs or symptoms. If you are a Sacramento 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.
