Sexually transmitted diseases are infections caused by bacteria, parasites, yeasts and viruses that spread between patients through sexual contact (oral, vaginal or anal). HIV, gonorrhea, human papilloma virus (HPV) infection and syphilis are the most common STDs. Being infected with an STD makes it easier for the HIV to get access into the human body due to sores or break in the skin. STDs can cause uncompromising damage to the human body and even result in death at times.
Symptoms of STD differ from person to person and even more shocking is that, men and women with the same STD have different symptoms. Painful urination, unusual discharge from the vagina or penis and fever are the most common symptoms. While STDs caused by bacteria, yeast or parasites can be treated with antibiotics, there is no cure for the ones caused due to viruses and treatment can only help ward off pain and keep the disease under control.
To avoid all these painful procedures, it is better to safeguard ourselves against the attack of these infections by taking cardinal preventive measures:
Syphilis may cause miscarriage and still birth, HIV infection can be passed to a baby during vaginal birth and gonorrhea and chlamydia may cause health problems in an infant right from eye infections to pneumonia. Read more on HIV and its grave effects on the human body at www.firsteatright.com.
