Sexually Transmitted Infections

Does having another STI place a person at greater risk of infection if they are exposed to HIV?

Yes, having another STI does increase the risk of getting HIV. This may be because of the lifestyle of having unprotected sex with multiple partners, but the skin conditions associated with other STIs, such as skin inflammation and open sores, also increase the areas in which the virus can spread. Furthermore, having HIV and another STI increases the risk of spreading HIV.
