  • Using condoms correctly and consistently to greatly reduce the exchange of body fluids.
  • Reducing the number of sexual partners.
  • Avoiding the use of intravenous drugs or sharing needles.
  • Abstinence.
  • Communicating with sexual partners before having sex about being tested for sexually transmitted infections and protection.
