1 doctor agrees
In brief: Depends
Yes, mostly... Gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, etc.
.. Can be acquired any number of times. Their is no limit and no protection from repeat infection. Hiv, HSV and likely hpv are permanent and dont ever go away. Of course, there are more than one type of hpv and HSV (herpes) and you can get all of them possibly.
