Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs), also known as Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) or Venereal Diseases (VD) are diseases that are passed on from one person to another through sexual contact, and sometimes by genital contact – the infection can be passed on via vaginal intercourse, oral sex, and anal sex.
Some STIs can spread through the use of unsterilized IV drug needles, from mother to baby during childbirth or breastfeeding, and blood transfusions. STIs have been around for thousands of years.
The genital areas are generally moist and warm environments – ideal for the proliferation of yeasts, viruses and bacteria.
Examples of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) include: Chlamydia, Chancroid, Crabs (Pubic Lice), Genital herpes, Genital warts, Hepatitis B, HIV/AIDS, Human Papillomavirus (HPV), Trichomoniasis (parasitic infection), Molluscum Contagiosum, Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID), Scabies, Syphilis, Syphilis, gonorrhea, Trichomoniasis (Trich), Yeast infections.
