Sexually transmitted diseases are a serious problem in many parts of the world. They can infect anyone --- young or old, male or female. In the United States alone, about 25% of teenagers contract an STD every year. In addition to that, approximately 50% of adults get infected with an STD each year.

Some common STDs

Because of how easily transmittable STDs are, it is important that everyone becomes aware of what these STDs are and what they can do. There are many types of STDs that are widespread today, and here are just six examples:

Genital Warts - These are pinkish or reddish growths that pop up around or in the genitals. They are very tiny and sometimes very hard to see. They usually grow in clusters and can spread fast.

Gonorrhea - Also usually referred to as the drip or clap, gonorrhea is a very contagious STD that is caused by the Neisseria gonorrhoeae bacteria. It thrives in the moist areas of the body. It can trigger several symptoms and complications, so it must be tested, diagnosed, and treated right away.

Syphilis - This is another very contagious STD that is caused by the Treponema pallidum bacteria. It is frequently transmitted via sexual contact and not by casual contacts such as shaking hands or sharing clothing and utensils.
