Difference between an STD and STI

By STD Concern

There is basically no difference between an STD and STI just small technical ones. STD stands for Sexually Transmitted Diseases and STI is Sexually Transmitted Infections. They are both umbrella terms for conditions that are passed from person to person through unprotected sex.

Venereal Disease

The old term VD (Venereal Diseases) had more stigma attached to it and was less defined, so it was changed to the more politically correct and specific term STD and STI.

Perception

When you tell someone they have a STI it often sounds less threatening then an STD. When you say STD, it always will connect to a disease. Most of these infections are diseases, but something like Pubic Lice which are a Parasite can cause an infection from their feces are listed as an STD because they do spread by sexual activity.

Can STDs be Cured

Some of these STDs can be cured especially Bacterial or Parasitic infections like Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Syphilis and Trichomoniasis. But when if comes to Viral Infections like Herpes, HIV, HPV and Hep C they can only be managed symptomatically. The only way to get proper treatment is to get tested. There is treatment available for all types of STIs.

Symptoms & Untreated STDs

If you have an infection, you might not no it because some STDs are symptomless or have overlapping symptoms with other STDs. Unfortunately, some of these STDs will cause problems with your health like Infertility, Pregnancy Complications and certain Cancers. Read More >>



Conclusion

If you have been sexually active with multiple partners, testing is the only way to find out if you have a Bacterial, Parasitic or Viral infection and that would entail getting tested for multiple STDs at one time. If your partner has tested positive for an STD, you should probably be tested as soon as possible for that STD.
