Find out How likely are you to get an STD.

STD is probably one of the most feared acronyms in the English language. Today we’re going to talk about STDs and or STI sexually transmitted infections and diseases so as much as the idea of STDs and STI scares everyone and sends people running for the hills.

The number one thing that you should know is that you actually probably know someone who has an STI or STD. There are over 20 million new infections in the United States per year as estimated by the CDC and that number is incredibly conservative that only includes eight common infections.

The World Health Organization says that there are over 30 sexually transmitted infections and diseases so that number that 20 million does not include things like pubic lice, scabies, mollusk, contagiosum and a number of others.

There are quite a few additional infections as well that doesn’t include the infections that are either undiagnosed or undetected because are not aware that they have STD because they don’t have symptoms and being asymptomatic.
