If you are wondering if you should be tested for STDs, the answer in most cases is yes.
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are infections that spread through sexual activity. STDs may be bacterial, viral, or parasitic. Some are curable, but others can only be treated. They vary greatly in type and may not even produce noticeable symptoms. They can, however, create serious problems for women, developing babies, and breastfed infants, including infertility and death.
