Part 11 Sexually Transmitted Infections

The more effective the contraceptive at preventing pregnancy the higher your risk of getting an STI. There are approximately 30 STIs, some are caused by viruses, others by bacteria. Bacterial infections can sometimes be cured with antibiotic therapy but both partners must be treated at the same. Viruses cannot be cured. Increasing numbers of sex partners a person has in his or her lifetime increases exponentially his or her exposure and risk or STIs.
