Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are infections transmitted through sexual contact. Blood, semen, vaginal fluid and other bodily fluids may carry bacteria, viruses or parasites that cause sexually transmitted infections from one person to another. While sexual contact is the primary method of transmission, this infection can sometimes spread non-sexually, such as when mothers give birth to their infants or when using shared needles or blood transfusions.
A British Medical Journal reported that 6 percent of adults in India are thought to have STIs. If you are sexually active, you’re also at risk of developing this infection. Only timely detection can help you treat the condition; thus, you should be aware of the symptoms of STIs.
So ladies, take this quiz to know whether you are at risk of STIs or not.
