Why do humans get so many types of sexually transmitted diseases whereas animals get none?
When you think about it, humans are absolutely filthy when it comes to sex. The percentages of folks with herpes are so very high. And then you have all of the others: gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, genital warts, crabs, AIDS, Hepatitis C, etc, etc, etc. Why do humans get so many sexually transmitted diseases whereas animals get none? What is it with humans? Why does nature punish humans for having sex whereas animals can have as many sexual partners as they want and not get a disease?
There's a number or reasons for the APPARENT high incidence of STDs in humans:
1/ Sex is a common and easily studied activity among humans, unlike animals to whom we don't have the same motivation to study in this aspect.
2/ Humans are able to modify their environments rather more successfully than other species. They can become almost invulnerable to many influences, hence Nature responds by increasing the number of maladies afflicting humans to control their unrestrained overpopulation.
3/ Animals DO get STDs.
Koalas' are rife with chlamydia, armadillos' are the ONLY animal affected by syphilis (and transmittable to humans) and some monkeys have been implicated (in/accurately ?) with the spread of AIDS.
Crabs are lice and as animals are infestations rather than diseases. Their spread CAN involve sexual contact but not necessarily -- just lke nits (head lice) -- and are readily found among other animals.
Genital warts are warts on genitals.Warts are papiloma virus's that can involve contact other than sexual to spread on many animals not just humans.
Too, many animals have sexually transmitted infertility ailments that are identified and spread by researchers amongst pest populations to reduce plaguing.
Whilst many animal illness's are related to human maladies not all are transmittable between animals and human, and when they do (zoonoses) not all require sexual interaction. (+ info

Does an hiv test cover all kind of sexually transmitted diseases?
i've had an hiv test done last year, the result is negative/non-reactive. i'm paranoid since i'm sexually active again. i want to the test again. if i'll go to the doctor where i did the test before, will i only do the hiv test? i want to check all possible test which is connected with sex. do i need to do another test for all sexually transmitted diseases? thanks.
A HIV test only tests specifically for HIV antibodies. If you would like to check for other diseases, just let your health-care professional know and they will arrange for the other tests to be done.
btw, do remember that HIV has a 3-6 month window period where it can hide in your body and be undetectable to tests. Always remember to go back for a second test to confirm your status. (+ info
