Women who have never had sexual intercourse may also be affected by BV, and it is common in pregnant women.
Chlamydia is the most commonly reported STD in the United States.
If they occur, symptoms in men and women vary depending on what part of the body is infected: Gonorrhea can affect the anus, eyes, mouth, genitals, or throat.
You can get genital herpes even if your partner shows no signs of the infection.
It is the virus that can lead to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, or AIDS. Unlike some other viruses, the human body cannot get rid of HIV. That means that once you have HIV, you have it for life.
There are more than 40 HPV types that can infect the genital areas of males and females.
PID occurs when certain bacteria, such as chlamydia or gonorrhea, move upward from a woman's vagina or cervix (opening to the uterus) into her reproductive organs.
Signs and symptoms of syphilis include a firm, round, small, and painless sore on the genitals, anus, or mouth, or a rash on the body, especially on the palms of the hands or the soles of the feet.
Without treatment, trichomoniasis can increase a person’s risk of acquiring HIV.
