Sexually Transmitted Diseases
The term “sexually transmitted diseases” (STD) refers to conditions that are spread from one person to another through sexual contact. They often spread by vaginal, oral, or anal intercourse. However, they can occasionally be disseminated by further sexual contact with the penis, vagina, mouth, or anus. This is because certain STDs, including herpes and HPV, can spread from person to person through skin-to-skin contact.
Different sexually transmitted diseases have different symptoms. If you do, you might experience following symptoms in or close to your genital area:
- Warts, bumps, or sores in or around the mouth, penis, vagina, or anus.
- A rash or intense itching close to your vagina or penis.
- Vaginal discharge that smells unpleasant, irritates, or is unusual in colour or quantity from typical.
- Discharge from penis.
- Painful sex.
- Weight Loss
- Fever, chills, and aches.
When different bacteria, viruses, or parasites enter your body, sexually transmitted illnesses can emerge. These germs can be acquired during intercourse, often vaginal, oral, and anal sex, or other sexual activities, when body fluids (such as blood, urine, saliva, semen, and other mucous-lined regions) are exchanged.
Bacterial STDs are typically simpler to cure. Infections caused by viruses can sometimes be treated, but not always. Depending on the condition, treatment for STIs typically includes one of the following:
- Antibiotic treatment
- Antiviral medication
Complications of Sexually Transmitted Infections
If sexually transmitted infections are not treated, they may result in long-term effects. The following are typical side effects of untreated STDs:
- AIDS can develop from HIV.
- Organ and neurological system damage and fetal infection are all possible effects of syphilis.
- Possibility of transmitting STIs to your sexual partners.
