Sexually transmitted diseases and infections are spread through any kind of sexual contact (vaginal, anal, oral, outer-course, and genital touching). These infections can be spread very easily and are among the most common in the United States. STDs and STIs affect both men and women of all age groups. If you and your partner are sexually active, you are at risk of contracting an STD or STI.
Some of the most common bacterial infections include Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and Syphilis. These infections result from direct contact with the infected area. Symptoms for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea often include abnormal discharge in women and any discharge in men. Also, burning and or an unusual feeling during urination are indications. Syphilis symptoms occur in three stages: sores, skin rash, fever, fatigue, and swollen lymph nodes will occur. These sexually transmitted bacterial infections can cause you to have permanent health problems and for some, there is no cure. Women can also suffer from Vaginitis, which is a bacterial, or yeast infection that causes increased vaginal discharge and burning, and itching.
Regular STD testing and early detection are key to successful treatment and keeping your overall healthcare costs low. Untreated STDs in women can lead to cancer in their reproductive system, infertility, and pelvic inflammatory disease. In men, an untreated STD can lead to cancer, sterility, and other medical complications.

What You Should Know
Many people have no signs when they have contracted an STD or STI. Some STDs can be fatal for both you and your partner. Getting tested is often the only way to know if you have been infected. By getting tested early, and receiving proper treatment, you can prevent problems that might not be reversible later.
There are steps you can take to help prevent yourself from getting an STD and an STI. Choosing not to have sex is one of the most effective preventative steps. Do not have unprotected sex with anyone. Not having sex with multiple partners is another way you can reduce your risk of exposure. Open and honest communication with your sexual partner at all times about STDs or STIs and being willing to get tested is vital.
