Sexually Transmitted Infections

(Service)
Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) are spread from one person to another by sexual contact. These infections cause Sexually Transmitted Disease (STDs), which are common, can cause pain, and can cause infertility and death if not treated. Some common STDs are gonorrhea, trichomoniasis, chlamydial infection and syphilis. Genital warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) and some subtypes of HPV are responsible for most cases of cervical cancer.
