"Can condoms prevent all STDs?"

"No. Using condoms decreases your risk of getting HIV, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and Trichomoniasis. Since condoms don’t cover all skin surfaces they are less likely to protect you from diseases spread by skin-to-skin contact (e.g. Herpes, Genital Warts)."

"Can a woman get pregnant while breastfeeding?"

"Yes. Even though breastfeeding may suppress or delay menstruation, you can still get pregnant. Ovulation will occur before you start having menstrual periods again, so follow your doctor's recommendation on the appropriate birth control method to use."

"Can I get a sexually transmitted disease (STD), including HIV from kissing?"

"No, the amount of virus transmitted through saliva in a kiss, is too little to infect someone else with HIV. BUT; if there are open sores in both mouths and blood is coming out, then there is a chance of HIV transmission."
