Transcript of Where Did STD's originate?

STD stands for sexual transmitted diseases. They are illnesses that can be caused by transmission between humans by means of sexual behavior, including vaginal intercourse, anal sex and oral sex. They can also be transmitted through blood.
What Is A STD?
Where Did STD's originate?
Until the 1990s, STDs were commonly known as venereal diseases, the word venereal is derived from the Latin word venereus. This means relating to sexual intercourse or desire, ultimately derived from Venus, the Roman goddess of love.
Goddess of Love
The first recorded European outbreak of what is now known as syphilis occurred in 1494 when it broke out among French troops in Naples. The disease may have originated from the Columbian Exchange. From Naples, the disease swept across Europe, killing more than five million people. The skin would peel from the people's face and they would die within a month.
First Known Case
Back in the day, STD's were thought to be incurable. Doctors pretty much gave people a death sentence when they were diagnosed.

Today antibiotics are prescribed by a doctor if the disease is curable.
There is no known first person. There are many theories and beliefs on where STD's actually came from.
Who Was The First Person to Receive an STD?
The human papillomavirus (HPV)
Main Types of STD's
Many STDs are (more easily) transmitted through the mucous membranes of the penis, vulva, rectum, urinary tract and less often—the mouth, throat, respiratory tract and eyes.
Portal Of Transmission and Entry
Although the first main case of STD's are not recorded and no person knows how the disease started, researchers have learned many things that have helped infected people.

A person had sex with African Prime Apes or livestock
There was a blood mix up between an infected animal and a human
Two humans had sex and neither had the virus and somehow the blood just made an STD develop
The disease just came out of no where and started spreading rapidly
Don't have sex!
You will get chlamydia and DIE!
