Did you know? STIs are really common. Many have only mild, few or no symptoms. One in two sexually active young people will get an STI by the age of 25, however most will not know it.
STIs can affect people of all ages, backgrounds, and from all walks of life.
Most STIs are curable, and the rest are manageable with good treatment and care.
Some STIs can cause serious health problems though, so it can help to know the facts so you can protect yourself:
STIs are usually spread through sex - vaginal, oral or anal.
STIs can be spread through any type of sex: from a male to a female, a female to a male, a male to another male or a female to another female.
Some STIs can be spread through any contact between the penis, vagina, mouth or anus, even if there is no penetration. For example, genital herpes is transmitted through direct skin-to-skin contact, and can be transmitted even if there is no penetration.
Some STIs can be spread in other ways also. For example, HIV and Hepatitis B are spread through sharing needles for injecting drugs or medicines.
