STDs & Symptoms
What is an STD?
An STD is a sexually transmitted disease and most people will have an STD in their lifetime. It's estimated that there are 19 million new cases of STDs in the U.S. each year. One of the reasons why STDs are so common is because they are often "silent." You can be infected without showing any sign of an infection. STDs are often passed through sexual activity but can be passed to an unborn child during pregnancy, through IV drug needles, skin-to-skin, or through breastfeeding.
