How to Calculate the Risk of STD?

The risk of acquiring a sexually transmitted disease, or STD, is one of the most common concerns for people who have not yet been tested. While it is true that some STDs can be cured with medication, others can be life-threatening.

It is a common misconception that one may get an STD only from intimate contact. Some STDs may be transmitted via sharing cups, bongs, cigarettes and clothes.
