  • 2. What is a Sexually Transmitted Infection or STI?• STI’s are infections that are spread from person to person through intimate sexual contact.• STI’s are dangerous because they are easily spread and it is hard to tell just by looking who has an STI.• 1 in 4 sexually active teens has an STI ?.1/12/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 2
  • 3. STDs• STDs are diseases and infections which are capable of being spread from person to person through: – sexual intercourse –oral-genital contact or in non-sexual ways. –IV drugs1/12/2013 Dr.T.V.Rao MD 3

  • 36. Chancroid• A sexually transmitted disease caused by a bacterium. More commonly seen in men than women, particularly uncircumcisedmales• Chancroid is spread by having unprotected anal, vaginal or oral sex.• Some symptoms include: – sores or raised bumps on the genitals which eventually if untreated, becomes filled with pus and eventually ruptures leaving a painful sore/ulcer. – The bacterial may also infect the lymph glands in the groin. These glands may become enlarged, hard and painful. – In Women, ulcers appear on the genitals, painful urination and painful intercourse• Chancroids are contagious as long as the person as open sores.
