• Take These Steps to Reduce Your Risk of Contracting an STD

    Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) can be transferred from person to person during any type of sexual intercourse, including oral sex. Although abstinence is the only foolproof way to avoid STDs, there are precautions you can take to safeguard your health while being sexually active.
