8 Safe Sex Facts Every Girl Should Be Knowing

1. You Got Yourself Tested for HIV?

If you think you’ve tested yourself and your man for various STDs, then let me tell you, doctors perform different tests for different STDs. However, there is a comprehensive test for Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Hepatitis, HIV, Herpes and Syphilis. But not every medical centre offer this comprehensive test.

2. Virginity has nothing to do with HIV

Even if a person has never had an intercourse can be a victim of HIV-AIDS. If you think that not having sex can safeguard you from HIV, then think about it again.

3. Get Yourself Vaccinated for HPV

Consult your doctor about the same if you’re physically active with your partner. The best way to steer clear of HPV is to get yourself vaccinated.

4. Pulling-Out Doesn’t Guarantee Safe Sex

It’s true that the semen doesn’t enter the vagina when he pulls out before ejaculation. But the pre-cum that enters your vagina unknowingly can make you prone to HIV if he’s infected. Plus, when the sperm is ejaculated just outside the vagina, it can swim through it and cause pregnancy. So, the best way to stay safe is to use a condom.
