The main risk factors for occurrence of sexually transmitted diseases are insufficient libido, promiscuity, poor social conditions, and poor health care.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) represent the second most frequent group of diseases in women between the ages of 15 and 45. These include venereal diseases: syphilis, gonorrhea, ulcer mole and chlamydia as the only sexually transmitted bacteria.
Sexually transmitted viruses are more difficult to cure, and include:
- human papillomavirus (HPV)
- genital herpes
We have the possibility to take vaginal and urethra smears, microbiologically analyze the ejaculates, as well as do an HIV, Hepatitis B and C, VDRL and TPHA serology, in case of suspected Treponema pallidum (Syphilis) infection.
