How common are STDs?

Every year, around 20 million new STD infections occur. About half of them happen to people ages 15 to 24. Gonorrhoea, chlamydia and syphilis are the most commonly discussed STDs and syphilis in pregnancy may lead to congenital syphilis if left untreated.

Is an STD contagious?

Yes, if you have an STD, you can pass it on through contact. That's why it's important to see a healthcare provider and get treatment right away. Once the STD goes away, you can resume your life. You don't have to worry about passing an STD through casual contact. Shaking hands or sharing a bathroom won't lead to STDs.

Can STDs be cured?

Many STDs can be cured. But some, like HIV, require lifelong care and treatment. And you can get an STD again. If you engage in risky behaviour (multiple partners, not using condoms), you risk getting re-infected.
