having STD would not necessarily mean that they have no chance of getting married because there are a Muslims and reverts that did not start practicing until later in life, and may be in similar circumstances. In regards to a convert, once a person becomes a Muslim, all of the sins are erased 

It states in sharee’ah that the Muslim should not expose himself to harm. 

That includes mixing with a person who has a contagious disease, especially if that disease is serious and chronic.

With regard to the one who is sick, Muslim (2221) narrated from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The owner of sick camels should not bring them to the healthy ones” – lest the disease be transmitted to the healthy ones

With regard to the one who is healthy, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Flee from the leper as you would flee from a lion.” Narrated by Ahmad, 9429; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’, 7530. 

Leprosy is a well-known contagious disease – we ask Allaah to keep us safe and sound. 

Muslim (2231) narrated from ‘Amr ibn al-Shareed that his father said: Among the delegation from Thaqeef there was a leper. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) sent word to him saying: “We have accepted your oath of allegiance; go back.” 

Ibn al-Qayyim (may Allaah have mercy on him) said in Miftaah Daar al-Sa’aadah (2/272): 

He sent word to that leper accepting his oath of allegiance so as to establish the shar’i principle of avoiding the causes of harmful and hateful things, because a person should not expose himself to the causes of harm. 

Knowing that's a person has std, he should try to find someone who does has it because he will harm a person by having them contract it.a person should not want for their spouse to be harmed. So that person can marry,but should not marry one who does have std because of the harm they will curse the.

What about 2 people have HIV and they get married, have a baby and the HIV transmits to the baby?

concerning them having a baby.It is best they still should use a condom in order to avoid the exchange of body fluids which may be infected. This advice is important for the protection of their wife or husband.So I can't give you straight answer because

From an infected mother to her baby (either in the womb, during labour, or through breastfeeding). Rates of transmission from mother to baby are 14-25% in developed countries, and 29-40% in developing nations. statistically there is not even a 30 % chances but Allah knows how the child will turn out. Discuss this with the spouse and a doctor
