Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), are generally acquired by sexual contact. The organisms that cause sexually transmitted diseases may pass from person to person in blood, semen, or vaginal and other bodily fluids. Sometimes these infections can be transmitted nonsexually, such as from mother to infant during pregnancy or childbirth, or through blood transfusions or shared needles.……….It’s possible to contract sexually transmitted diseases from people who seem perfectly healthy, and who may not even be aware of the infection. STDs don’t always cause symptoms, which is one of the reasons experts prefer the term “sexually transmitted infections” to “sexually transmitted diseases.”
……….Obtaining an STD is so easy to do. Casual sex these days is just stupid. Find yourself a partner and try to stick with him/her. That will lessen your chances of catching God knows what from God knows who. Sometimes STDs are a nightmare though experts claim they have a handle on curing just about all of them. I personally would not take a chance.
……….One time my boyfriend gave me something that had me smelling like rotten fish. I knew immediately that something was wrong. I kept asking my girlfriend if she could smell it and she swore she couldn’t (could have had something to do with her own stinky hygiene, she did not like bathing for some reason). I finally made my way to the clinic and the doctor verified that I in fact had Trichomoniasis. He gave me some pills which I took right away and another 8 for my partner. He said if he failed to take them that I would be re infected. All a male does is pass it from one female to another. It is much too risky to have casual partners without protection. It is not worth the risk. When Marcus came over I told him he had to take the pills and he declared “I already took them, I’m not taking anything!” I said “fine, there will be no more sex, ever!” He thought about it for less than a minute, went to the sink, poured himself a glass of water, asked for the pills and gobbled all 8 down at once.
