Venereal Disease

Definition - What does Venereal Disease mean?

Venereal diseases (VD) are more commonly referred to as sexually transmitted diseases (STD) or sexually transmitted infections (STI). These are any illnesses or infections that are highly likely to be passed on via sexual contact. Many of these illnesses and infections can also travel between people who share IV drug needles. Contact with open wounds, childbirth, and breastfeeding are also ways to pass along VD.

Kinkly explains Venereal Disease

The term venereal disease (VD) has fallen out of favor. In recent years the term sexually transmitted infection has come to be the preferred terminology. This is because the people can be infected and infect others without having a "disease."
