STDs are sexually transmitted diseases. This means they are most often - but not exclusively - spread by sexual intercourse. HIV, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Herpes, Syphilis, Trichomoniasis, and some forms of Hepatitis are STDs. STDs are serious illness that require treatment. Some STDs, such as HIV, cannot be cured and can be deadly. By learning more about STDs, you can learn more ways to protect yourself.
All men and women who are sexually active should have regular checkups for STDs by a health care provider. Having a new partner, many partners or a partner who has multiple partners increases your chances of getting an STD.
If you think you might have been exposed to an STD, see a health care provider or go the public health department for testing and/or treatment.
