Chlamydia and gonorrhea are just two of the many s£xually transmitted infections (STIs) that can be avoided by using condoms. Condoms have an effectiveness rate of roughly 98% when used properly, which indicates that only 2% of couples fall pregnant each year.
Although a condom can help prevent the spread of HIV and other s£xually transmitted diseases, some diseases can still be transmitted through skin-to-skin contact. You now understand that even if you use a condom, you could catch these three STDs.
The bacterium that causes syphilis can be transferred through oral, vaginal, or anal s£xual contact. The first symptom of syphilis is an open sore (chancre) at the site of infection, which is transferred through sexual contact.
If the chancre can be maintained clean, using a condom can lower the risk of getting syphilis. However, if a condom is not used, the virus can be transmitted.
2. Herpes simplex.
The herpes simplex virus can be transmitted through direct oral, vaginal, or genital contact (HSV). The virus causes painful oral and genital sores, as well as a nuchal rash. HSV-1 (Herpes simplex virus) causes fever blisters and cold sores on the lips and mouth. Herpes simplex virus type 2 causes painful blisters and ulcers in the genital area.
It is recommended that you refrain from sexual activity during an active outbreak to reduce your chances of transferring herpes to a partner (when you are at your most contagious).
3. Warts on the genitalia.
More than 140 distinct strains of the Human Papillomavirus cause genital warts (HPV). A low-risk viral strain causes genital warts, while more harmful variants have been related to certain malignancies. HPV can be transmitted by unprotected genital skin-to-skin contact.
