What are STDs and how do I know I have one?
STDs or "sexually transmitted diseases" (you may have heard them referred to STIs or "sexually transmitted infections") are either viral or bacterial infections impacting the sexual organs and sometimes other parts of the body. They are passed through sexual contact. There are many different types of STDs, some have symptoms, some do not. Don't wonder. Know for sure.
