Sexual intercouse STIs (sexually transmitted infections) or STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) are infections contracted and spread through sexual intercourse, while some can also pass through skin to skin genital contact. If the infection modifies the regular function of the body it is then understood as a disease.

Risk of infections or diseases may not pass your mind while getting hot under the collar with a significant other. Though the dangers are certainly real and can cause a range of health problems from mild irritations to serious long-term illnesses.

Some STIs can be easily cured with antibiotics if detected early enough, while others can have permanent repercussions if left untreated. It’s vital to keep on top of your sexual health with regular tests.
