Frequently Asked Questions
Below outlines some of the key questions asked by people around STD's
Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs), or Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs), are both infections. They can be passed from person to person through sexual contact (vaginal, oral, or anal sex). Sometimes they can spread through skin-to-skin contact.
Sometimes STDs only cause mild symptoms. This makes it possible to have an infection and not know it. If this is the case you risk passing it on to others.
Symptoms could include:
- Unusual discharge from the penis or vagina
- Sores or warts on the genital area
- Painful or frequent urination
- Itching and redness in the genital area
- Blisters or sores in or around the mouth
- Abnormal vaginal odor
- Anal itching, soreness, or bleeding
- Abdominal pain
Antibiotics can treat STDs or STIs caused by bacteria or parasites. There is no cure for STDs or STIs caused by viruses such as HIV. However, medicines can help treat the symptoms and reduce the risk of you spreading the infection.
Using latex condoms correctly reduces the risk of catching or spreading STDs.
There are vaccines you can take to prevent HPV and hepatitis B.
Oral sex is involves using your mouth to stimulate the genitals. It is the most frequent ways that sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are passed on.
The STIs most commonly caught through oral sex are:
- genital herpes
- human papillomavirus (HPV)
You can also catch some STIs through oral sex:
- hepatitis A, hepatitis B and hepatitis C
- genital warts
- pubic lice
Cervical cancer occurs in the cells of the cervix. The cervix is located in the lower part of the uterus that connects to the vagina.
Most cervical cancer is caused by strains of the human papillomavirus (HPV).
By taking screening tests and taking a vaccine for HPV reduces your risk of developing cervical cancer.
