A sexually transmitted infection (STI) is an infection that is passed through close body contact or the exchange of bodily fluids.
STDs and STIs are more common than you may think. More than half of all people will contract an STI or STD at some point in their life, and 1 in 2 sexually active people will get an STD by the time they are 25.
There are an estimated 30 types of sexually transmitted diseases and infections, but some are much more common than others. There are two major causes of STIs/STDs – bacteria and viruses.
