The diseases that occur in males and females due to unethical sexual relations and not regularly cleaning their genital organs are called sexually transmitted diseases. These are diseases that are highly likely to spread due to sexual contact in humans or animals. The full name of STD is sexually transmitted disease. These infections are mostly sexually transmitted and common symptoms usually include rashes, pain during sex or urination, itching around the vagina in women, vaginal discharge, discharge from the penis in men, and boils and blisters, etc. However, this does not mean that STDs are only transmitted through sex. Some of these diseases can also be transmitted through other means, such as using the bed or towels of an infected person, through open wounds or peeled skin, etc. STDs are often deadly and dangerous, which can lead to death if not treated properly. AIDS is still an incurable disease, but the rest can be successfully treated.

The main causes and prevention of STDs are as follows:


  1. Having sexual relations in an unethical manner.
  2. Not regularly cleaning the genital organs.
  3. Having intercourse with an infected male or female.
  4. Having intercourse during the menstrual cycle.
  5. Children are born to infected parents.
  6. Injecting multiple individuals with the same needle, etc.


  1. A woman should have a relationship with only one man, and a man should have a relationship with only one woman.
  2. Use a condom during intercourse.
  3. An infected person should not reproduce.
  4. Regularly clean the genital organs.
  5. Avoid intercourse during the menstrual cycle.
  6. Use a needle to inject only one patient.
