There are several methods that are proven to help minimize
your risks of getting infected with an STD or STI.
Abstinence. Avoiding sexual intercourse, especially when you
are not ready, is the best preventive method.
Keeping to one partner and being faithful to him or her.
Your partner should do the same (mutual monogamy).
Vaccines against Hepatitis B and Human
Papilloma Virus (HPV) are available. HPV causes cervical cancer and genital
warts in women, and anal cancer and genital warts in men.
For Hepatitis B, a full course of vaccination consists of 3
doses, given at 0, 1 and 6 months. (Medisave – claimable)
For HPV, 3 doses are also required, given at 0, 2 and 6
months. (Medisave – claimable for women aged 9 – 26)
Vaccination is a safe and highly effective way to prevent
Use of latex condoms with spermicide. Use of condoms is
recommended for all forms of sexual contact, including oral intercourse.
HIV Post Exposure Prophylaxis (HIV PEP). Even HIV can be
prevented if appropriate measures are taken early. Medications are available
for use after potential exposure to HIV. The success rate is high if
medications are started within 72 hours.
Regular HIV and STD screening. The regular screening for STD
or STI, and treating infections we find serve to reduce the risk our partners
face. Since most STD or STI frequently do not display any symptoms – especially
in the early stages – doing screening tests could be the only way an infection
is picked up in time for treatment.
