If you are sexually active, it’s possible you could have an STI (sexually transmitted infection) or an STD (sexually transmitted disease). If left untreated, sexually transmitted infections can cause severe damage to your body.
You don’t have to have symptoms to be contagious; you can spread or contract the disease without even knowing.

How Can I Get An STI?

You can contract an STI through any type of sexual activity, such as vaginal, anal, and oral sex and genital touching. According to the Mayo Clinic, bacteria, viruses, or parasites that cause sexually transmitted diseases may pass from person to person in blood, semen, or vaginal and other bodily fluids.

Not even a condom is 100% effective. Some sexually transmitted diseases, such as herpes and human papillomavirus (HPV), can be transmitted by contact with the skin in areas not covered by a condom.

Get Regularly Tested

Only regular testing will keep you and your partner(s) safe. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), one in five people (nearly 68 million) has an STI.

Can I Be Pregnant And Have An STD?

Unfortunately, you can be pregnant and have an STD at the same time. In fact, having an untreated STD while pregnant can cause serious harm to you and to your pregnancy.

If you have had unprotected sex with a high-risk partner or shared needles, it’s important to get tested immediately.
