Abstinence is the surest way to prevent STD's. Experts hold that condoms are at best 85-95% effective. Condoms don't 100% protect you from herpes, warts, and HPV, cervical warts (HPV) related to cervical cancer. The surest way to avoid transmission of sexually transmitted diseases, including HPV, is to refrain from genital contact.
Herpes can easily be transferred to the genital area, from a partner who is giving oral sex and has a developing cold sore on his/her mouth. You can be shedding the cold sore (herpes type 1) virus a couple days before actually visualizing the sore.
STD's can be spread by having oral sex.
