Am I at Risk?
Ways that infections are transmitted may vary with disease, but generally, transmitting body fluids in the form of saliva, semen, blood, urine, or feces can increase the risk of infection. Anyone who is sexually active can be at risk for sexually transmitted infections, but some factors that raise that risk are as follows:
Being sexually active, especially with a new or multiple partners (male or female) in the last 12 months
Any IV drug use since last being tested for STD
Being a sex partner of an IV drug user
Being a sex partner to someone with different or multiple partners in the last 12 months
Having a parent, especially a mother, who was HIV positive
Being a blood or organ recipient at any time in your life
Been a victim of sexual assault
Obtaining tattoos and piercings
Are symptomatic: with suspicious sores, chronic fatigue, or itching, burning, or discharge in the genital or oral areas
Occupational exposure (healthcare, personal care, environmental services)
