Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are infections that you can get from having sex with someone who has the infection. The causes of STDs are bacteria, parasites, and viruses. There are over 20 kinds of STDs that can affect women and men, including Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Herpes Simplex, HIV/AIDS, HPV (genital warts), molluscum, Syphilis, and Trichomoniasis. If a pregnant woman has an STD, it can cause serious health problems for the baby.
