What are HIV & AIDS? What's the difference? Why is it the worst disease/STD according to majority of doctors? Are they treatable? P.S:I'm not infected

The term AIDS isn't used much anymore, mostly just called HIV infection. It's the worst STD because unlike all others, it is usually fatal if untreated.

Is there a pill or medication I can take to possibly prevent any STIs?

Is there a pill or medication I can take to possibly prevent any STIs?

Not really: Some antibiotics can prevent some STDs, but to prevent all common bacterial STDs would require at least 2 or even 3 different drugs. Even these would not prevent the 2 most common STDs, herpes and HPV. And taking multiple antibiotics brings a whole bunch of health problems. Therefore STD prevention relies on wise partner choice, safe sex, and early diagnosis & treatment, not prior antibiotics. ...Read more
