STIs are infections that people usually get by having sex (vaginal, anal, or oral) with someone who already has a sexually transmitted infection or disease.
According to the latest CDC numbers, the CDC estimates that 20 million people are infected each year!
79 million people are infected with HPV; over 7 million Americans became newly infected in 2020 with sypillis; and at least 50% of sexually active individuals will acquire an HPV infection at some point in their lives. Almost half of these new HPV cases are from people ages 15-24. HPV has caused 26,800 new cancers found where HPV is usually found in the body (mouth, throat, vulva, and cervix and others).
Not all STIs are curable. Bacterial STIs can be cured with antibiotic medicine, but viral STIs cannot. There are over 20 types of STDs!
