Don’t fall for fake news. Here’s five myths that we’ll POFMA right here.
Myth: Only people who are promiscuous or have multiple partners get STIs
No! Anyone who is sexually active can get an STI, regardless of the number of partners they have had.
Myth: All STIs are visible
No! Many STIs do not have visible symptoms, so it is not possible to tell if someone has an STI just by looking at them.
Myth: You can only get an STI from vaginal sex.
No! As long as there’s genital-to-genital contact, you can get STIs.
Myth: Using two condoms at the same time provides extra protection.
Don’t do this. Using two condoms at the same time can actually increase the risk of condom breakage and decrease effectiveness.
Myth: STIs can be cured with antibiotics.
Not all of them. Some STIs cannot be cured.
