Classification and Terminology

Prior to 1990, commonly known as sexually transmitted diseases sexually transmitted diseases: Veneris is the Latin genitive of names of Venus, the Roman goddess of love. Social disease was another euphemism.Health workers initially the term sexually transmitted infection that doctors will increasingly find that the term sexually transmitted diseases, in contrast to the first. According to the Ethiopian AIDS Resource Center for questions and answers, "Sometimes the terms STI and STD are used interchangeably. Used This can be confusing and not always accurate, so it helps first difference between infection and disease to understand. Infection simply means that the germ-virus , bacteria or parasites that cause illness or disease in humans infected person does not necessarily have any symptoms or signs that a virus or bacteria is actually hurting his body;. they do not always feel sick disease. means that the infection results in really feel infected patients, or notice something is wrong. For this reason, the term STI that has to infection with the germ, which can lead to STDs, even if the infected person has no symptoms of a much broader view than sexually. " [1] made a difference, but closer to that in the period of colonization and infection, and not between infection and disease.In particular, the term sexually transmitted infection only causes symptoms. Since most of the time people do not know, until they begin showing symptoms of the disease that they are infected with venereal disease, most people use the term STD, even though the term STI is also appropriate in many cases.Moreover, the term sexually transmitted diseases are sometimes used because it is less restrictive in light of other factors and means of transmission. For example, meningitis, sexually transmitted, but not marked as an STI because sexual contact is the main tool cause meningitis. This discrepancy is considered likely to be infected by means other than sexual intercourse. In general, the STI, which is negligible probability of transmission by means other than sexual contact, but a realistic means of transmission is through sexual contact (more sophisticated means of blood transfusion, needle exchange, are not considered). Thus, we can assume that if people with STIs, including chlamydia, gonorrhea, genital herpes is infected, it was passed to it through sexual contact.Diseases, usually will be sent only to sexual activity in this list. Many infectious diseases, including colds, flu, pneumonia, and most others that can be transmitted from person to person through sexual contact, when a person becomes infected through close contact is involved. Although these diseases can be transmitted during sex, they are not considered sexually transmitted diseases.
