Sexually transmitted diseases like Syphilis, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, herpes, and HIV can be shared not only through sexual activity, but also during pregnancy, through IV needle sharing, skin-to-skin contact, or breastfeeding.
Norfolk STD facts illustrate the fact that all types of sexual activity can spread STDs. Syphilis, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, and HIV transmissions are passed through bodily fluids. Other STDs like herpes move from person to person through surface contact. Condoms can reduce the transmission of STDs, but they are not foolproof.
One of the most alarming aspects of current Norfolk STD facts is that many sexually transmitted diseases exhibit no signs or symptoms. The only reliable method Norfolk area residents have to assess their risk is through STD testing.
