Sexually Transmitted diseases are also known as venereal diseases (VD) or sexually transmitted infections (STIs) that are passed from one person to another through sexual contact, by semen, vaginal secretions, blood during sexual intercourse, use of unsterilized drug needles, from mother to infant during childbirth or breast-feeding, and blood transfusions. Symptoms of this disease include penile dischargevaginal discharge, ulcers on or around the genitals, and pelvic pain. Each year, there are an estimated 357 million new infections with 1 of 4 STIs: gonorrhoeachlamydiasyphilis and trichomoniasis. Drug resistance, especially for gonorrhoea, is a major threat to reducing the impact of STIs worldwide. Antibiotics can treat STDs caused by yeast, bacteria, or parasites and also safer sex practices decrease the risk. Comprehensive sex education during school is also useful.
