What kind of intercourse is unsafe?
- Having vaginal, anal or oral intercourse without the use of contraceptives is termed as unsafe sex; unsafe intercourse is likely a factor of infectious disease transmission.
- Unsafe intercourse occurs if a susceptible person has sex with at least one partner who has Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI), without taking measures to prevent infection; this makes you more likely to get Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) or other sexually transmitted disease.
- Intercourse with multiple partners also increases the risk of getting HIV or another STDs.
- Anal intercourse is also unsafe and riskiest sex for both men and women because the lining of the anus is much thinner than vagina. Thus, it can be damaged much more easily and are vulnerable to infections.
- Intercourse with a partner who has ever injected drugs is also risky for both the partners. If the person intercourse or shares equipments with someone who is HIV positive, it can contract the virus because of the needles or even cotton filters which can all expose him to someone else’s HIV-infected blood.
- Trying to re-use a condom or using a condom that is past its use-by date while during intercourse.
- Withdrawing the penis before ejaculation instead of using condoms (pre-ejaculatory fluid may be infectious and can also contain sperm resulting in pregnancy).
