A Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD), also called venereal disease, sexually transmitted infection or STI is a term for infections acquired primarily through sexual contact. In most cases, the usual area of contact is the genitals, but other sexual practices such as oral and anal sex can also lead to cases of infection with an STD.
STD’s afflict an estimated 200 to 400 million people worldwide, including about 70 million in the United States, and the incidence of infection is rising. According to The Centers for Disease Control, more than 30 individual STDs have been identified. Each STD is unique, but they share similar symptoms.
Most STDs can be cured through timely diagnosis and proper medical treatment. STDs are most common among sexually active teenagers and young adults, especially individuals who have multiple sex partners but can affect anyone of any age. No one is immune to the risk!
