STD classification and terminology
Venereal | Genitourinary | Urogenital | Genital | Sexual | Sex
- Sexually transmitted disease (STD) - refers only to infections that are causing symptoms.
- Sexually transmitted infection (STI) - refers to infection with any germ that can cause an STD, even if the infected person has no symptoms.
- Venereal disease (VD) - term used before the 1990s.
- Genitourinary medicine (GUM) is an expanding specialty which is primarily related to the treatment and prevention of sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
- Sexual health is a state of physical, emotional, mental and social well-being in relation to sexuality; it is not merely the absence of disease, dysfunction or infirmity. Sexual health requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination and violence. For sexual health to be attained and maintained, the sexual rights of all persons must be respected, protected and fulfilled.

Could sex with 21 women 'cut prostate risk'?
Wed, 29 Oct 2014 10:30:00 +0100 | NHS News Feed
ConclusionThis case-control study has suggested that having several female partners over a man’s lifetime is associated with a protective effect against prostate cancer, whereas having several male partners increased the risk.However, case-control studies like this one cannot prove that having several female partners reduces the risk of prostate cancer, or that having more male partners increases risk. When it comes to complex issues such as lifestyle, sexuality and cancer outcomes, there could be a wide range of contributing factors.If having multiple female partners reduced prostate cancer risk, it would be expected that the more partners you had the lower your risk would be. However, this study did not find such a relationship between number of female partners and associated risk. The...
