AIDS is a sexually transmitted disease. AIDS is the later stage of HIV and can be spread by coming in contact with infected blood. AIDS weakens your immune system, making you susceptible to all manner of infections and other medical problems. It is important to note that AIDS is the result of having HIV. The longer you have HIV, the more likely you are to develop AIDS. While treatments using antiretroviral therapy are very effective in treating the infection, there is no cure for the disease.Book STD Testing
Gonorrhea, also commonly known as clap, can show no symptoms though often patients will have pain when urinating, develop a dry throat, and experience pain either in the pelvic area or the testicles.

This infection can be treated using antibiotics but if left untreated, it can cause damage to the brain, heart, eyes, and joints.Book STD Testing
