Sexually Transmitted Diseases

What are STDs?

Sexually Transmitted Diseases are infections that people usually get by having sex with someone who already has one. Some STDs can be treated and cured with antibiotic medicine, while others cannot be cured. But many of the non-curable STDs can be treated to make them easier to live with.

 

STDs left untreated can:
  • Be painful and make you very sick. A few can even cause death.
  • Make it hard for a woman to get pregnant when she wants to.
  • Make a man unable to father a child.
  • Cause birth defects or other health problems for a newborn.

Millions of people have STDs. And most people who get them are under the age of 30.

  • STDs are common.
  • You can have more than one STD at a time.
  • You can get the same STD more than once.

What is PID (Pelvic Inflammatory Disease)?
Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is a serious infection in the upper genital tract/reproductive organs (uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries) of a female. PID can be sexually transmitted or naturally occurring. It can lead to infertility in women (unable to have children) or life-threatening complications. It's important to know PID because most std's lead to this in females.
