STD Infomation

There are many ways that Syphilis, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, herpes, and HIV can be transmitted from one person to the next. In addition to sexual activity, STDs can be communicated through pregnancy, needle-sharing, skin-on-skin contact, and even breastfeeding.

Any kind of sexual activity may potentially transmit STDs from one person to another. Although diseases such as Syphilis, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, and HIV are spread through body fluids, Herpes and other STDs are spread through skin-to-skin contact. Condoms are an effective resource for preventing the spread of STDS, but they do not completely remove the possibility of transmission.

The most alarming aspect of current Houston STD facts is that many sexually transmitted diseases exhibit no signs or symptoms. STD testing offers the only proven way for Harris County residents to assess their STD health status.
