Disclaimer: The answers listed above are for general understanding of Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) and Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) topics, and are compiled based on available information on public health and clinical websites (references listed). Our focus is mainly on facilitating these discussions between partners before sexual activities. We do not focus on many other scenarios such as transmission with syringe use, treatment information, affect on reproductive system or affect on baby during pregnancy. Your local health provider should always be your first choice in understanding STIs/STDs, diagnosis, treatment, precautions, preventions, local disclosure laws, and other related health information. Past STI/STDs tests does not indicate the diagnosis today. Always get tested regularly under the guidance of your local healthcare provider. SafeMatch does not take responsibility of errors, if any, and will work to correct these errors when communicated.
