What is an STD?
An STD, also referred to as a sexually transmitted infection or STI, is a bacterial, parasitic, or viral infection that develops as a result of sexual activity. It may spread through contact with vaginal fluid, semen, blood, or skin. There are many types of STDs, and symptoms can range from genital rashes, itching, and discharge to no symptoms at all. Because of this, it’s important to take a proactive approach to your sexual health by receiving STD testing on a regular basis or quickly after potential symptoms develop.
