Sexually transmitted diseases, commonly called STDs, are diseases that are spread by having sex with someone who has an STD. You can get a sexually transmitted disease from sexual activity that involves the mouth, anus, vagina, or penis. STDs are serious illnesses that need treatment. Some, like the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), cannot be cured and can be life-threatening without treatment. Anyone who is sexually active is at risk for an STD. Drug use and using other substances can increase the likelihood of catching an STD. Shared needles can spread STDs.
STDs develop when various bacteria, viruses or parasites infect your body. People share these microorganisms through bodily fluids during sexual activity — usually vaginal, oral or anal sex. STDs like syphilis can be transmitted to an unborn child. Some STDs may be present in infected blood. People who share infected drug needles can pass on STDs.
You might not have any symptoms with an STD. However, If you do have symptoms, they may include:
Bumps, sores or warts on or near the penis, vagina, mouth or anus
Swelling, redness or severe itching near the penis or vagina.
Discharge from the penis.
