  • 7. Journal
    • I don’t know anything from my assigned STD. I do know that STD are bad for your health. I know that some can’t get cured and if not treated in time some can be deadly. You can get them by oral, and vaginal sex. You can sometimes get them by kissing. I also know that some can be treated and cured.
    • I learned that it is the most common sexually transmitted disease in the United States. I think that people should be more careful when it comes to the STDs.
