Healthyhorns Tips for Playing It Safe

Protective Barriers

External condoms, internal condoms and dental dams reduce the risk of sexually transmitted infections (STIs). External condoms and internal condoms also prevent pregnancy. Use a protective barrier every time you have oral, anal or vaginal sex. Know where to get safer sex supplies and how to use them correctly.


Choose a birth control method that works for you and your partner(s).


Get the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine to protect you from genital warts and cancer.


Talk with your partner(s) about healthy sexuality, including STI testing, pregnancy prevention and consent. Learn how to build and maintain a healthy relationship.

Get Tested

If you are sexually active, you should also get tested for STIs regularly and make sure you get yourself tested before you become sexually active with a new partner. At UHS, you can get easy, confidential STI testing. There are also multiple off-campus STI testing locations.


Avoid using alcohol and drugs before having sex. If you use alcohol and drugs, you are more likely to take risks, like not using a condom. Plus, you are less able to give and receive consent.


Explore the other learning opportunities. Being knowledgeable about your sexual health can increase your comfort level around taking care of yourself and help you make informed decisions.
