Sarasota, FL -- (SBWire) -- 01/15/2018 --The term sexually transmitted diseases or STD are commonly used to refer to clinical syndromes and infectious diseases caused by pathogens that can be acquired and transmitted through sexual activity. These infections can easily spread by vaginal or anal intercourse, and sometimes by oral sex. STDs can also spread from the blood of infected patients. In addition, pregnant women with STD's may pass their infection to infants in the uterus (womb), during birth, or through breast-feeding. Prevention of STD infection is possible by having protective sex (using condoms) or abstaining from the sex.

Globally, STD diagnostics market has been accelerated by the rise in the percentage of unprotected sex which leads to increase in the prevalence of sexually transmitted diseases. Furthermore, lack of awareness coupled with unprotected sex is considered as major governing factors which promote the cause of sexually transmitted diseases and thus STD diagnostic market. Moreover, many lifestyle-related factors, such as having multiple sex partners are estimated to drive the sexual transmitted diseases diagnostic market. However, lack of education, psychological impact and the unwillingness of the infected population to undergo prognosis is expected to hinder the growth of the market. In addition, prevention of infection by vaccination is major restraining factor in a growth of STDs diagnostic market.
