STD

STD means Sexual Transmitted Disease. With it come diseases that are mostly transmitted through sex. There are different causes for disease with an STD, but they can be found in the mucus of the vagina, but also in the sperm or behind the foreskin. When contact is made with a disease carrier, it can be transmitted to the partner. With some STD’s a little wound is needed for transmission, but in most cases it even works without that. An STD can also be transmitted in another way, like drug use, blood transfusions and intimate contact (not sexually).
