Sexually Transmitted Diseases in Adolescence


The term “Sexually transmitted diseases” (STDs) refers to a variety of clinical syndromes and infections that involve a great number of people all over the world and are caused by pathogens that can be acquired and transmitted through sexual activity. Symptoms related to the infection usually involve the genitalia and urinary tracts, but there are some conditions that may have systemic manifestations. The possibility of contracting an STD in young women is particularly high both due to the biological risks of the age group and due to the behaviour of adolescents.
