An STD, or a sexually transmitted disease, is an infection that a person can acquire through sexual contact. The causes are bacteria, parasites,  and viruses.  Unfortunately, many individuals are unaware of what sexually transmitted diseases are along with the  symptoms. This is something that anyone who is sexually active should be aware of. Everyday, more people (teens especially) despite the information that is available, seem clueless as to what STD's are and how they could contract one. There are 20 common STD's provided below (All links are clickable for additional information).

  1. Chancroid
  2. Chlamydia
  3. Genital Warts
  4. Gonorrhea
  5. Hepatitis
  7. HPV
  8. Lymphogranuloma Venereum
  9. Molluscum Contagiosum
  10. Mycoplasma Genitalium

  12. Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
  13. Pubic Lice
  14. Scabies
  15. Syphillis
  16. Trichomoniasis
  17. Vaginitis Symptoms

If you think you may be infected with any of the previous on the list, please contact your nearest healthcare provider. Many of these can be treated if caught in the early stages. However, not getting treated can lead to spreading the disease to other people, infertility, harm to an unborn baby or death. If you are thinking about engaging in sexual activity, please protect yourself and use a  condom.

14 Do all things without complaining and disputing, 15 that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, 16 holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain (Philippians 2:14-16).
