Think you’re safe from STIs if you just have oral sex? Think again!

There is no such thing as 100% safe when it comes to getting STIs.  Compared to other types of sex, oral sex is considered a lower risk activity but "low risk" does not mean "no risk."  Did you know that the majority of common sexually transmitted infections such as Gonorrhea & Chlamydia can be transferred through either performing or receiving oral sex? Also, STIs that are transferred through oral sex may have no visible symptoms.

Did you know that when a woman is pregnant – everything she eats or drinks affects the baby growing inside her body?

That's why it is especially important for pregnant women to avoid harmful substances like drugs and alcohol during pregnancy. If you are having unprotected sex, you might be pregnant and not know it. It is important to know if you are pregnant so you can make healthy choices to protect your baby.

Condoms always come in square packages, right?
