Unfortunately, sexually transmitted diseases are becoming more common among young people. Some may not be aware of this, while others may just be carriers. While condoms are the best way to protect yourself from these diseases, more people are turning to other contraceptives, even if they don’t have a partner. Reginele.ro provides a list of sexually transmitted diseases, along with their symptoms. This allows you to determine if you are infected.
Chlamydia. This disease is usually asymptomatic and caused by a bacteria. The symptoms include urinary incontinence and vaginal discharge (in some cases, penis discharge). If left untreated, chlamydia may lead to infertility or pelvic inflammation.
Genital warts (HPV). This is caused by a virus that once it has infected the body, it will never go away. The appearance of warts in the intimate areas will be obvious. The warts appear on the penis in men and women. They are yellow-gray in color and can be seen on the cervix. The disease is hard to treat and may return after a while.
Syphilis. Syphilis is a serious illness that can lead to death. Patients may experience genital injuries, skin rashes, or problems with the heart and nervous system depending on their stage. The earlier the disease is detected, the greater the chance of healing (in the initial stage, it can be cured).
Candidia is also known as vaginal yeast infection. It affects 90% of women. Candida symptoms include thickening of the vaginal discharge and yellowing color. It can also cause itching and stinging in the genital area. The disease can be treated quickly (in as little as 10 days), but can also return in a matter of months.
Hepatitis B. It can be transmitted sexually through infected needles. It is more common in gay men, and those who engage in anal sex. It can cause fatigue, fever, headaches, jaundice and abdominal pain, as well as inflammation of the liver.
Herpes. This is caused by a virus that will resist treatment. You will experience small, painful blisters in your intimate areas and buttocks when the virus is active. The rash can develop at any time throughout your life. However, daily medication can help to control the condition.
Gonorrhea. Gonorrhea can be described as burning urine and vaginal discharge. If left untreated, the disease may progress to infertility, heart issues, or arthritis.
Genital lice. Pubic hair can be infested by small external parasites. These parasites are easily visible and can cause severe itching, mild fever, or inflammation of the tonsils. External treatment is the best way to get rid of genital lice.
HIV AIDS. HIV infection is the first stage. Although it cannot be cured completely, the progression of the virus to AIDS can be slowed. AIDS, the actual disease, can develop many years after HIV infection. HIV infection can be diagnosed by a blood test. The patient might experience night sweats, parasitic fungal infections, and weight loss once the virus has caused the disease. Some pornographic actors have become infected, but now the rules for performing in the porno industry have been regulated.
Pelvic inflammatory disorder. It can be caused by chlamydia, gonorrhea, and it affects the uterus. It can cause infertility and include abdominal pain, fever and tenderness of the uterus, ovaries, painful periods, fatigue, dizziness, pain while having intercourse, or vomiting.
