Please Clarify: There are twelve common stds. Some of these are viral infections of the liver, so yes, using alcohol when infected with liver damaging viruses can definitely make the liver sicker. But, what do you mean specifically? Which stds are you referring to?

Maybe: It should not worsen the std, however it may increase the likelihood of getting one or passing on one - may make bad decisions (like not wearing a condom).
