Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are infections caused by certain bacteria, viruses and other organisms passed on through unprotected sexual activity.
They can be passed from person to person through any form of sexual activity, including vaginal, anal and oral sex. Some STIs can be passed through skin-to-skin contact alone.
STIs are very common, but luckily most infections are easy to test for and easy to treat.
