Why should I practice Safer Sex?
Having unprotected sex, or sex with many partners, makes a woman more at risk for getting an STI, including HIV infection. HIV infection can lead to death from AIDS. Untreated STIs can cause infertility, pregnancies in the tube, and miscarriage. Having many partners also makes a woman more at risk for developing pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) and cancer. Women and men can help prevent all these problems by practicing safer sex.
