Women who only have sex with other women are still at a risk, albeit lower than heterosexual women, for contracting certain STDs. Obviously, the risk of pregnancy is eliminated. However, bisexual women should use birth control when they are having sex with men and be consistent. The risk of transmitting certain STDs such as HIV is greatly reduced in sex between two women. Keeping your partner’s body fluids out of your body is the best way to practice safe sex. You should be careful about menstrual blood, vaginal fluids and discharges from sores caused by STDs. Barrier methods for oral sex, including dental dam, are helpful for preventing the sharing of body fluids. And the use of condoms and latex gloves for other stimulation is also a safe alternative.
