This article by Dr. Pandula Siribaddana gives a small insight into the STI's caused and affected by fungus, and can offer some precaution to both cleanliness and safe sex, it sure made me realise I don't want to be bothered by an STI

       From the article we can know that sexually transmitted diseases are spread through sexual acts. The main type of sexually transmitted diseases are Chlamydia, herpes, the human papillomavirus, gonorrhea, syphilis, trichomoniasis and HIV(human immunodeficiency virus).

       The symptoms of Chlamydia in women include abnormal vaginal discharge, burning during urination, and bleeding in between periods; the symptoms in men include pain when urinating and abnormal discharge from their penis. About the herpes some people are asymptomatic or have very mild symptoms. Those always be notice in 2 to 20 days and will last 2 to 4 weeks. Also with the flu like symptoms. The symptoms of the human papillomavirus won't show until advanced stages. The symptoms of gonorrhea usually start appearing in 2 to 5 days after contact with an infected symptoms, and some men won't notice it in 1 month the symptoms in women include vaginal discharge, burning or itching while urinating. Symptoms in can be burning and pain while urinating, increased urinary frequency, discharge from the penis, red or swollen urethra. Syphilis is a disease which can cause long-term complications and death. About the HIV symptoms usually disappear, and the patient can remain asymptomatic.

This is yet again another hope for a vaccine, this time for one of the more prominent STI's, HIV. It's very good news for this incurable STI. It's once again very informative, and gives a good description of the disease and the possible cure. It's very exciting for suffers and families to see this as a possible way out :)

Think STIs don't happen to people like you? You could have an STI without even knowing as many STIs don't have symptoms.

I know that this site isn't actually an article, but it is VERY informative, and it would probably be the number 1 site I would use for research. It gives a governmental and true opinion and facts on topics such as STI's, and I would trust this site more than a Wiki answer.
The topics that it covers are- HIV/AIDS, Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Herpes, HPV, Syphilis, and also has an 'other' section.

This site is a good warning to young people who are having sex (and older). But the most common ages to have or get STI's are 15 to 29. Basically this part of the site is telling you to be careful of people's excuses to not be safe. This is a good notice as most teens wouldn't be bothered or going on the lines of this wouldn't happen to me when in reality it could happen to you. The site is good to get across to teenagers and give information on the topic.
