Yes, some people are more prone than others to be infected from STD.

  • Deficiency of the immune system is one of the reason for increased risk.
  • People with other STDs are also more prone to be infected with more HIV as much more of the white blood cells will remain around the genital area.
  • People with skin disorders are more prone to skin breaks that can create points of entry for STDs.
  • A young or pregnant female will have changes in her cervix that increases the risk of infection with STDs.
