What is a STI?
Infections transmitted through sexual activity
are referred to as Sexually Transmitted Infections
(STI), and are caused by infecting organisms. Some
STIs infect sexual and reproductive organs, while
others (HIV, hepatitis B, Syphilis) cause general
body infections. One may have an STI and yet have
no signs or symptoms, or the symptoms may go away
on their own. While some STIs can be cured, others
remain treatable for symptoms but cannot be cured.
