Sexually transmitted infections are quite commonly experienced by men and women who are sexually active.

Recent statistics indicate that the number of people suffering from sexually transmitted infections is increasing at an alarming rate.

These infections can be contracted through unprotected vaginal, oral or anal intercourse.

You can contract these infections by sharing your sex toys with an infected person as well.

Men and women who have multiple sex partners or frequently change their sex partners are at a greater risk of developing such sexually transmitted infections.

Those who have become sexually active at a very young age are at a greater risk of developing sexually transmitted infections.

What are sexually transmitted infections?

‘Sexually transmitted infections’ is a term that has been coined recently.

Until now, the infections that were contracted through sexual contact were referred to as sexually transmitted diseases. But there is a very thin line of difference between these two terms.

A person who is having an infection does not experience any symptoms of the infections as such.

An infected person can hardly experience or notice any signs that the virus or the bacterium causing the infection is causing any harm or discomfort to your body.

Sexually transmitted infections include infections such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, ureaplasma urealyticum or mycoplasma genitalium.

What are sexually transmitted diseases?

There is a very thin line that can be drawn between a sexually transmitted disease and that of a sexually transmitted infection.

A person can be said to be suffering from a sexually transmitted disease if he or she can experience any sort of sickness.

Basically an infection can be classified as a disease only when it is sexually transmitted and causes sickness or discomfort to the person, which is quite noticeable.

STD testing can help in diagnosing whether you have contracted an infection or not. For diagnosing this infection, you can either visit a STD clinic or order the required test through a registered online clinic.
