What's the difference between STI and STD?


Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are infections which you can get mainly through unprotected vaginal, anal, and oral sex. When we say unprotected sex, we mean sex without a condom. 

Do you know the difference between an STI and an STD? You've got a sexually transmitted infection (STI) when you've been infected by a bacteria, virus or parasite through having unprotected sex. If the infection goes on to cause symptoms, such as unusual discharge from your penis or vagina, you've got a sexually transmitted disease (STD).

In a short word, the only difference between an STI and an STD is whether you've got symptoms. Either way, you still have an infection that you can pass on to someone else. To stay safe, use condom with your partner to keep safety. Email: linda@oemcondoms.com
