STD Symptoms

Sexually transmitted diseases, or STDs, are actually a lot more common than people think. One of the main reasons that they keep spreading is because the carrier often does not know he or she is infected. Many STDs do not show any symptoms, and the infection can go undetected while still being passed to others. If you are sexually active, it is important to get tested for your own health. STDs are often passed through sexual intercourse of any kind, but in some cases can be passed through skin-to-skin contact and needle sharing. Symptoms vary for each infection, so get tested and treated as soon as possible if you think you may have an STD.
