What is STD

The terms “STD” and “STI” are sometimes used interchangeably, they are not the same. A “disease” is typically a visible medical issue with noticeable signs and symptoms. An STI “infection” may or may not result in illness. Because most people with STIs have no symptoms and hence are unaware that they can transfer the virus to their sexual partner, many individuals and organizations working in the health field are switching to the term “sexually transmitted infection” rather than “sexually transmitted disease” (s).

It’s possible to be infected and not notice it because STDs don’t always or only cause mild symptoms. As a result, you should be examined if you are having sex. If you’ve been diagnosed with an STD, keep in mind that virtually all of them can be treated with medicine, and some of them can even be cured.

STDs are spread by sexual activities such as vaginal, oral, and anal intercourse. They can also be transmitted by close physical contact, such as excessive petting, however, this is not particularly common.
