STD and HIV Infection

sexually transmitted disease is referred to as an STD. An alternative name for STDs is sexually transmitted diseases (STIs). STDs are sexually transmitted infections that can spread from one person to another through anal, vaginal, or oral intercourse. STDs are caused by viruses, parasites, and bacteria. Blood, sperm, vaginal secretions, and other bodily fluids are all ways that the bacteria, viruses, and parasites that cause sexually transmitted illnesses can pass from one person to another. The transmission of these illnesses from mother to child can occasionally occur outside of sexual relationships, such as during pregnancy or childbirth, blood transfusions, or the sharing of needles.

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a virus that impairs the body's immune system, increasing a person's susceptibility to various illnesses and infections. The virus is communicated through contact with specific body fluids of an HIV-positive person, most frequently during unprotected intercourse (sex without the use of a condom or HIV prevention or therapy), or by sharing injectable drug equipment. HIV can develop into AIDS if it is not treated (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome).
