Sexually transmitted infection

Sexually transmitted infections (STI), also referred to as sexually transmitted diseases (STD) or venereal diseases (VD), are infections that are commonly spread by sexual activity, especially vaginal intercourse, anal sex and oral sex. Many times STIs initially do not cause symptoms. Symptoms and signs of disease may include vaginal discharge, penile discharge, ulcers on or around the genitals, and pelvic pain. Some STIs may cause problems with the ability to get pregnant.

Behind the mask: “Syphilis; poëme en quatre chants”, Paris, 1851.

Most people commonly lose their virginity between the ages of 16-18. Although this is a common way of contracting an STD or STI it is not the ONLY way. Diseases such as HERPES can be spread by sharing drinks or kisses. Not only that but sharing needles from a clinic or with recreational drugs. Many people have contracted HIV through intravenous transmission. Practices used to prevent contraction of STDs and STIs should not be limited to safe sex and keeping chaste. People should also never share needles (or do drugs in the first place) or share anything orally or intravenously.

Syphilis is transmitted from person to person by direct contact with syphilis sores. Sores occur mainly on the external genitals, vagina, anus, or in the rectum. Sores also can occur on the lips and in the mouth. Syphilis can be transmitted during vaginal, anal, or oral sexual contact. Pregnant women with the disease can pass it to their unborn children.... Its curable. So seek help soon.
