Genital and Sexually Transmitted Infections

by John Fisher, MD

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are disease processes which are spread by close contact and sexual activity. They affect all types of people and can be prevented with proper education and barrier control. A wide variety of bacteria, viruses, and parasites can cause STIs. Different infections can be present or be transmitted simultaneously, and the presence of any such infection increases the risk of contracting other types of STI.

Though these diseases are often oligo- or asymptomatic, and a number of diagnostic strategies and tests (of varying quality) are available for individual pathogens, they can cause severe fetal and neonatal damage, genital neoplasia, and infertility.
