More Information about Sexual Health


Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are potentially serious infections that are spread through sexual contact with a partner. Many infections may not show any noticeable symptoms, which is why STD testing is crucial. Medications for most of the diseases are available and effective, but if left untreated STDs can cause serious physical damage and infertility. Anyone who has unprotected sexual activity outside of a mutually monogamous relationship is at risk for an STD and should be examined.
