Sexually transmitted diseases like Syphilis, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, herpes, and HIV can be passed not only through sexual activity, but also during pregnancy, through IV needle sharing, skin-to-skin contact, or breastfeeding.
Any kind of sexual activity can potentially transmit STDs from one person to another. Although diseases such as HIV, Gonorrhea, Syphilis and Chlamydia are spread through body fluids, Herpes and other STDs are spread through skin-to-skin contact. Condoms are a useful resource for preventing the spread of STDS, but they do not completely eliminate the possibility of transmission.
Las Vegas STD facts reinforce the reality that many sexually transmitted diseases exhibit no signs or symptoms. If you are a Las Vegas area resident who is worried that you may have contracted an STD, the only way to determine whether or not transmission has actually occurred is through a simple STD test.
