All reproductive tract infections RTJs are STDs, but all STDs are not RTIs. Justify with example.


The common STDs are gonorrhea, syphilis, genital herpes, chlamydiasis, hepatitis-B, AIDs etc. Hepatitis-B, and AIDs are not infections of the reproductive organs though their mode of transmission could be through sexual contact also. All other diseases are transmitted through sexual contact and are also infections of the reproductive tract.
