Where did sexually transmitted diseases originate from?

Dr. Hunter Handsfield
Infectious Disease 54 years experience
Evolution at work!: Same as for most infections. There are billions of bacteria and viruses that inhabit our bodies, mostly beneficial or at least harmless but sometimes causing disease. The STDs are caused by some that evolved to cause disease, to survive best in the genital tract, and to require human intimacy for transmission. In other words, they evolved with humans as we ourselves evolved from earlier ancestors.
