About sexually transmitted diseases

Sexually transmitted diseases, commonly known as STD, are infections which are spread by sexual intercourse with someone who has STD. There are various types of STD’s, some more serious than others, and although they may manifest in different ways, they are all contagious and infectious. You can get an infection from sexual activity that includes the mouth, anus, vagina, or the penis. Many infections thrive in the moist genital areas, and because of the skin-to-skin contact of the sexual act, is quickly passed on as a STD, or infection.

You may have heard the myth that you will not get an STD infection via oral sex or anal sex. This is not true, as the millions of bacteria in these diseases will be certain to cause an infection, especially if you have unprotected sex with a partner who is already infected.

Some of the more common sexually transmitted diseases – and the symptoms:

Here are 4 of the most common STDs:

  • The human papilloma virus is easily transmitted and mainly causes genital warts. Sometimes, except for the warts, there are no symptoms of this dangerous virus which increases the risk of cervix or penile cancer. Protect yourself by having an annual check-up for any signs of warts.
  • Chlamydia is a very most common STD. If this infection is left untreated, it can spread to the womb and cause a serious disease known as pelvic inflammatory disease, which can lead to infertility in women. Both women and men are attacked by this infection and symptoms include (men) pain when urinating, watery discharge from the tip pf the penis, and pain in the testicles. Women also experience pain when urinating, vaginal discharge, pain or bleeding during sex, and pain in the pelvic area. If diagnosed and treated early, the condition is usually cleared up with a course of antibiotics.
  • Any one of several strains of herpes is also very easy to pick up, and infection rates are high. Herpes bacteria never leave the body, and can lie dormant for long periods, only prone to flare up if your immune system is lower than it should be. Anti-bacterial creams can help to control the rash and itchiness in the genital area.   

Any symptoms of STDs you may experience, need to be confirmed and treated by a medical doctor as soon as possible. Sex should also be taboo until any symptoms have cleared up.

A good way to protect yourself from picking up STDs

  • A good quality condom is one of the best ways to prevent falling prey to a STD. A man should always use a condom, especially if he has casual sex with different partners. It is also very important that women should also insist on casual male partners using a condom during a sexual encounter.
  • Teenagers and young adults are at high risk because many are unprepared physically and emotionally for sex, and tend to have multiple partners, often with no protection. Those who are sexually active must always insist on making use of a condom, no matter what your age.
