Anyone who is sexually active can get a sexually transmitted disease (STD). Most STD’s are treated easily with medication. These STD’s include syphilis, gonorrhea, genital herpes, chlamydia, and genital warts. However, with HIV/AIDS there may be no symptoms, but IT IS DEADLY. If you have had sexual intercourse without a condom, you should be tested for all STD’s. Since STD’s are contagious and can result in permanent damage, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU GET IMMEDIATE MEDICAL HELP.
