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 Syphilis, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, and HIV are spread through body fluids, Herpes and other STDs are spread through skin-to-skin contact. Condoms can reduce the transmission of STDs, but they are not foolproof.
The most alarming aspect of current Stockton STD facts is that many sexually transmitted diseases exhibit no signs or symptoms. STD testing offers the only reliable way for San Joaquin County residents to determine their STD health status.
