If you choose to be sexually active, be smart. Stay healthy, be responsible, communicate with your partners and practice safer sex.
UHS' Peer Health Educators are students sharing what they know with others. Learn from them, or be one yourself!
Sexually transmitted infections
Sexually transmitted infections (STIs), also referred to as sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), include the various infections spread through sexual contact involving the penis, vagina, mouth or anus. Some STIs are more communicable than others and some cannot be cured, but all can be transmitted even if a person has no detectable symptoms.
Sexual health and GLBTQ people
Regardless of how you identify or who you have sex with, every sexual behavior carries with it some risk. Check out these resources or visit the Center for Health Promotion for information.

Condoms and dental dams can help protect your sexual health. Both are available in many locations across campus, including the UHS Pharmacy, your RA, and at events and information tables sponsored by the Center for Health Promotion.
