There are over 50 STD’s some can be treated and some can’t. There are about 3 to 4 that are commonly contracted. Please practice safe sex!!! Click below to find out which is the most common STD amongst Americans.
An STD is any disease that is spread primarily by sexual contact. One partner transmits the disease-causing organism to the other partner during sex (oral/vaginal/anal/etc.). Not all diseases that affect the sex organs are STDs. Some are not at all connected with sex.
Chlamydia is the most common curable STD. It infects the cervix in women, and the penile urethra in men. Its most frequent symptoms are pain during sex, and discharge from the penis or vagina. However, the reason chlamydia is so common is that most people who get chlamydia don’t have symptoms for weeks, months, or even years. Despite the lack of symptoms, it’s important to get screened and treated if you think you might have been exposed to chlamydia, because it can do a lot of damage to your body in the long run. Want to avoid getting chlamydia? Latex condoms are effective at preventing the disease.
