Sexually Transmitted Disease
What is a Sexually Transmitted Disease?
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are infections transmitted through sexual contact. They can be passed through the exchange of bodily fluids and through shared needles. Many STDs can be asymptomatic, leading to undiagnosed infections and unknowing transmission.
STDs encompass a wide range of infections, and millions of new cases occur annually. Regular STD testing is crucial since some infections may not cause symptoms. Fortunately, there are treatments with medication and there are even cures for some.
