std 101 - herpesSexually Transmitted Diseases, commonly called STDs, comes in many shapes and form. This article will give you the low-down on some of the more popular STDs. Think of this as an STD 101.

STDs are diseases that spread by having sex with someone who has an STD. You can contract a sexually transmitted disease from sexual activities involving the mouth, anus, vagina, or penis as well as other bodily secretions. The causes of STDs are bacteria, parasites and viruses. There are more than 20 types of STDs, but among the most well-known and prevalent ones include:

  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhea
  • Genital herpes
  • HPV
  • Syphilis
  • Trichomoniasis

Most STDs affect both men and women, but in many cases the health problems they cause can be more severe for women. For example, if a pregnant woman has an STD, it can cause serious health problems for the baby.

If you have an STD caused by bacteria or parasites, your health care provider can treat it with antibiotics or other medicines. If you have an STD caused by a virus, there is no cure. Sometimes medicines can keep the disease under control. Correct usage of latex condoms greatly reduces, but does not completely eliminate, the risk of catching or spreading STDs.
