Extractions: Feedback Sexually Transmitted Diseases: Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are a group of various diseases that are spread by sexual contact. They are sadly very common with an estimated 65 million living with an STD and about 15 million annual cases in the USA. Most new cases affect teenagers and young adults under 25. Some STDs have either no symptoms or no early symptoms, making them often undiagnosed, such as: HIV genital herpes HPV chlamydia ... trichomoniasis , and gonorrhea . This means they can be spread further and also cause serious complications such as PID and infertility . This is especially unfortunate because antibiotic treatment of serious non-viral STDs such as chlamydia, trichomoniasis, and gonorrhea is usually simple and successful. Other less common STDs such as

Extractions: Contact Us Sexually Transmitted Diseases Sexually transmitted diseases are also called STDs, or are referred to as sexually transmitted infections or STIs. STDs/STIs do not refer to any one disease but include more than 25 infectious organisms. Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) are caused by bacteria or viruses. STDs are almost always spread from person to person by sexual intercourse, but STDs can also be spread through oral sex. Some STDs, such as hepatitis B or HIV infection, are also transmitted through blood-to-blood contact, through the sharing of needles or equipment to inject drugs, body pierce or tattoo. Highlights STD/STI Factsheets
Extractions: July 1999 An Introduction to Sexually Transmitted Infections Sexually transmitted infections (STIs), once called venereal diseases, are among the most common infectious diseases in the United States today. More than 20 STIs have now been identified, and they affect more than 13 million men and women in this country each year. The annual comprehensive cost of STIs in the United States is estimated to be well in excess of $10 billion. STIs affect men and women of all backgrounds and economic levels. They are most prevalent among teenagers and young adults. Nearly two-thirds of all STIs occur in people younger than 25 years of age. The incidence of STIs is rising, in part because in the last few decades, young people have become sexually active earlier yet are marrying later. In addition, divorce is more common. The net result is that sexually active people today are more likely to have multiple sex partners during their lives and are potentially at risk for developing STIs. Most of the time, STIs cause no symptoms, particularly in women. When and if symptoms develop, they may be confused with those of other diseases not transmitted through sexual contact. Even when an STI causes no symptoms, however, a person who is infected may be able to pass the disease on to a sex partner. That is why many doctors recommend periodic testing or screening for people who have more than one sex partner.
