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.
Any kind of sexual activity may potentially transmit STDs from person to person. Other STDs (like herpes) are spread through physical contact. Condoms can minimize the risk of exposure, but they are not guaranteed to prevent the contraction of a STD.
The most alarming aspect of current Oakland STD facts is that many sexually transmitted diseases exhibit no signs or symptoms. If you are a Oakland area resident who is concerned 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.
