What are sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)?

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are one of the most typical infectious illnesses in the US today. Over 20 STDs are already identified and they have an effect on approximately 19 million males and females in this particular country every year. The annual treatment cost of STDs in the US is estimated to be in excess of $14 billion.

How do STDs affect women?

Health issues due to STDs tend to be severe and much more frequent for females than for men, in part because for females there are often no visible symptoms, so they do not seek care until critical issues have developed.

Some STDs can spread into the uterus and fallopian tubes to result in pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), which is a reason for both infertility and ectopic pregnancy. Ectopic pregnancy can be fatal. STDs in females also may be related to cervical cancer. Human papillomavirus infection (HPV) might cause genital warts and cervical and other genital cancers. STDs can be passed from a mother to her baby before, during or right after birth. A few of these newborn infections is often curable easily, but others might cause a baby to be completely disabled or even die.
