Quick Question

From what Ive been reading—-main ways I see is No condom production during intercourse vaginal/anal. I dont study medical or no much but what does iv mean? Does it mean the needle needs to be inside a vein like hospital gives those
Water bags solution?Does pokes not direct to vein still pose a risk?

IV means intravenous - directly into your vein.  The only people who really need to worry about intravenous infection are people who share intravenous drug needles - a needle with a syringe that injects something into your vein.
