Neisseria meningitidis
This STD can cause invasive meningitis, a potentially deadly infection of the brain and spinal cord's protective membranes. It can be transmitted to partners through oral sex, deep kissing or other kinds of close contact that transmit infected droplets but mostly the fore.
Roughly 5 to 10 percent of adults likewise carry N. meningitidis in the back of the nose and throat.
Researchers says it may have gone viral as a form of the disease among gay and bisexual men in Europe, Canada and the US. 
There are five types of N. meningitidis responsible for most infections around the world and only two types vaccines can offer some protection against all five.


Mycoplasma genitalium
First, Mycoplasma genitalium is one of the smallest bacteria known and it is gaining attention daily as a serious Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI). This STI infects an estimated 1 to 2 percent of people especially common in adolescents and young adults.
It is a sexually transmitted organism that causes non-gonococcal urethritis in men and several inflammatory reproductive tract syndromes in women such as cervicitis, pelvic inflammatory disease, and infertility.
It cannot be prevented by wearing condom.



Shigella flexneri
Shigellosis also known as Shigella dysentery is an STI passed on by direct or indirect contact with human faeces. The infection causes severe stomach cramps and explosive bouts of blood- and mucus-filled diarrhea, which helps perpetuate transmission of the bacteria.
