You are at risk of contracting an STD if you have:
Intimate contact, not just intercourse, can also put you at risk. Anal or oral sex just means the disease may be passed differently. Also, genital warts and herpes may be passed if you have skin-to-skin contact with a sore.
Sometimes, you’ll have symptoms such as genital warts or a vaginal discharge, but oftentimes, you’ll be asymptomatic. You won’t know you’re carrying the infection until it’s progressed. Regular gynecologic visits that include screenings can help you stay healthy.
Many STDs exist. Some of the most common include:
Come in for a screening right away. It’s much easier to treat an STD in its early stages than later. Don’t let embarrassment stop you. STDs are common and treatable. Half of all sexually active young adults will have contracted an STD at some point by age 25.
