Sexually transmitted infections STI

Sexually transmitted infections (STI). STIs, also known as sexually transmitted diseases (STD), are infections that are typically spread through sexual activity. Bacteria, viruses, or parasites can cause them. Here are some common STIs:

Chlamydia is an infection of the genital tract, throat, and eyes caused by the bacteria Chlamydia trachomatis. It frequently has no symptoms but, if left untreated, can lead to catastrophic problems.

Gonorrhoea is an infection of the genital tract, rectum, and throat caused by the bacteria Neisseria gonorrhoeae. It, like Chlamydia, may cause serious health concerns if not addressed.

Human Papillomavirus (HPV): HPV is a virus family that causes genital warts and has been related to cervical, anal, and throat malignancies. Many HPV carriers have no symptoms.

Herpes: Herpes is a viral infection that causes painful sores in the vaginal and oral regions. HSV comes in two varieties: HSV-1 (which frequently causes oral herpes) and HSV-2 (which typically causes genital herpes).
