STD Information

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are infections that you can get from having sex with someone who has the infection. The causes of STDs are bacteria, parasites, and viruses.

There are more than 20 types of STDs, the most common of which include chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes simplex, HIV/AIDS, HPV, syphilis, and trichomoniasis.

STDs affect men and women. In many cases, the health problems they cause can be more severe for women.

STDs caused by bacteria can be treated and often cured with antibiotics. Some bacterial STDs include chlamydia, gonorrhea, trichomoniasis, and syphilis.

STDs caused by viruses can be controlled, but not cured. If you get a viral STD, you will always have it. Some viral STDs include HIV/AIDS, genital herpes, genital warts, human papilloma virus (HPV), hepatitis B virus, and cytomegalovirus.

When diagnosed and treated early, many STDs can be treated effectively. Some infections have become resistant to the medicines used to treat them and now require newer types of treatments.

Correct usage of latex condoms greatly reduces but does not completely get rid of the risk of catching or spreading STDs.

Approximately 19 million new infections occur each year, almost half of young people ages 15 to 24.

 

STD Diagnosis

STD Treatment

The treatment depends on the type of STD. For some STDs, treatment may involve taking drugs or getting a shot. For other STDs that can’t be cured, like herpes, there is a treatment to relieve the symptoms.

STD Prevention

The only way to ensure that you won’t get infected is to not have sex. This means avoiding all types of intimate sexual contact. If you are sexually active, you can reduce your risk of getting STDs by practicing safe sex.

Using a condom for vaginal, oral, and anal intercourse every time
Knowing your partner and his/her STD status and health
Having regular medical check-ups, especially if you have more than one sexual partner.
