STDs are part of a broader group of infections known as reproductive tract infections. Some RTIs are not caused by sexual contact, but may be the result of an overgrowth of the bacteria and other organisms that normally live in the vagina. The presence of any infection that causes irritation of the skin in and around the vagina increases possibility of infection with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. Viruses can enter the body through damaged skin more easily than through healthy skin.

Remember that not all infections of the genitalia or reproductive tract are the result of sexual contact. Telling a client he or she has a sexually transmitted disease can have serious negative consequences for the client and his or her sexual partners. Before doing so, the counselor must be sure of the diagnosis.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
