STDs can be consi

Answer :

STDs are diseases or infections which are transmitted through sexual intercourse , they are also known as venereal diseases (VD) or reproductive tract infections (RTI).

Gonorrhoea, syphilis, genital herpes, chlamydia, genital warts, trichomoniasis, hepatitis-B and AIDS are some of the common STDs.


Though STDs can be transmitted unknowingly sometimes but most of the times STDs are considered as self-invited diseases because


i. Individuals have sex with unknown partners/multiple partners.


ii. Many times individuals do not use condoms during coitus thus, increasing chances of contracting STDs.


iii. When in doubt individuals do not go to a qualified doctor for early detection and thereby avoiding complete treatment if diagnosed.


iv. Individuals share needles with infected persons, which could also lead to STDs.
