During sex, you may get or pass on a sexually transmitted infection (STI). STIs do not always cause symptoms. That’s why you may not notice your infection. If you have an STI, you are more likely to infect yourself or others with HIV or another STI during sex – also called ‘piggyback infection’ or co-infection.
The risk of infecting others with HIV increases with untreated HIV infection (or when viral load is not below the detection limit) and concurrent infection with another STI.
The earlier an infection is detected, the easier it can be treated. You will never be able to completely eliminate the risk of infection, but there are things you can do to reduce the likelihood. On this page, you will learn what you can do to manage your risk.
- Pay attention to your body. Have changes in your cock, ass, clit, front hole and surrounding skin examined by a specialist immediately.
- Always use only your own utensils when consuming substances.
- Test yourself for STIs regularly. Here you can find a list of test centers in Berlin.
- Condoms, internal condoms, gloves and greaseless lubricants provide protection during fucking.
- PrEP gives you additional protection against HIV and can be prescribed by specialists.
- Check your vaccination status against hepatitis A and B. Have your vaccination refreshed regularly.
- Be fair: inform your sex partners in case of an STI infection. In this way, chains of infection can be broken.
- Abstain from sex until the end of treatment!

The most important STI are:
HIV / AIDS
HIV is an acronym meaning "human immunodeficiency virus". This means human immunodeficiency virus. HIV damages the body's defenses, also called the immune system. (This link takes you to the website of Aidshilfe.)
Syphilis is a bacterial infection that, if not treated, can cause serious health problems in later stages.
Gonorrhoea is - together with chlamydia - one of the most common sexually transmitted infections. The gonococcus bacteria can be easily transmitted and usually affect the mucous membranes of the throat, rectum or urethra.
Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver. It can result from alcohol and other substance use or be triggered via viruses. There are several variants of viral hepatitis with different consequences. Some types can heal on their own (hepatitis A), while others can become chronic and lead to long-term health limitations.
Chlamydia is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections (STI) and is very easily transmitted. If left untreated, the infection can lead to inflammation of the urethra, rectum and genital area.
Nubs on the glans, nubs on the butt. Genital warts are among the most common sexually transmitted diseases. (This link takes you to the website of Aidshilfe.)
Public lice are one to three millimeters in size and cling to the pubic hair with their six mostly red legs, close to the skin. (This link takes you to the website of the NHS.)
Everyone knows cold sores - unpleasant blisters that ooze. The same in pale pink you can also get on the penis or ass... (This link takes you to the website of Aidshilfe.)
