Safer sex tips: kissing
Below are some tips on how to perform different sex activities safely.
The risk of getting an STI from kissing is very small but cannot be excluded.
- Avoid kissing others when you have cold sores as you can transmit herpes. Someone who has cold sores on his/her mouth can pass on herpes when kissing you.
- Be careful. You run a greater risk of contracting hepatitis B if your gums are inflamed or if you have mouth sores. Violett can give you a free vaccination.
- Good oral hygiene reduces the risks.
