What is an STD?
Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) are diseases that are spread through direct sexual contact. You can get more than one STD at a time and you can get the same STD more than once. Some STDs can be treated and cured with antibiotics. STD’s are a serious issue that if left untreated, may lead to serious outcomes such as infertility, pelvic inflammatory disease, ectopic pregnancy, or cancer.
The most common STD’s in the United States are Chlamydia, Gonorrhea and HPV. The health department provides education, counseling, and testing for HIV and other STDs. With prevention and early diagnosis, medical care can begin sooner and help you to live a longer, healthier life.
