Safe sex as a woman

Practice safe sex

As a woman, you shouldn’t be afraid to take control of your sexual health and safety. Being prepared, being ready, and being safe is better. Preventing getting or spreading sexually transmitted infections, such as HIV, gonorrhea, or syphilis, helps both you and your partners stay disease-free. Plus, the smart use of birth control can help you avoid an unplanned pregnancy.

Use protection

Using a condom can already improve your health against any sexual diseases. Being on birth control can also help you prevent unwanted pregnancies. There are many different ways to getting birth control. The two popular ones are the birth control pill and the depo shot. With the birth control pill, you have to drink it every day at the same time without missing any day. The depo shot is only needed to be injected every 3 months.

Limited your number of partners

If you limit your number of sexual partners you sleep with, you already have a lower chance of getting STI.
