Get the Facts
Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs), also called Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs), are caused by bacteria or viruses that are transmitted through sexual or intimate contact. You can get an STD by having sex (vaginal, anal or oral) with someone who has an STD. Anyone who is sexually active can get an STD. You don't even have to "go all the way" to get an STD, since some STDs, like herpes and HPV, are spread by skin to skin contact.
STDs are extremely common, especially among young people, and they are difficult to track. Many STDs don’t cause any symptoms that you would notice, so many people who have an infection go undiagnosed. You can get an STD from having sex with someone who has no symptoms. Just like you, that person might not even know he or she has an STD. The only way to know for sure if you have an STD is to get tested.
With the exception of viral infections, i.e. Genital Herpes, Genital Warts, Hepatitis, and HIV infection (AIDS), most STDs can be cured. The key to treatment is the word PROMPT, since many STDs, if not immediately treated, can go on to cause serious medical problems. The Sexually Transmitted Disease Clinic helps to assure that the community has access to confidential testing, counseling, and treatment.
