Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are infections that are passed from one person to another through sexual contact. The causes of STDs are bacteria, parasites, and viruses.

Types of STDs:

Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)
Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS)
Chlamydia
Gonorrhea
Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) …
Genital Warts and Human Papillomavirus (HPV)
Genital Herpes (HSV-1, HSV-2)
Syphilis. .

An infection that causes warts in various parts of the body, depending on the strain.
Human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI).
Many people with HPV don’t develop any symptoms but can still infect others through sexual contact. Symptoms may include warts on the genitals or surrounding skin.
There’s no cure for the virus and warts may go away on their own. Treatment focuses on removing the warts. A vaccine that prevents the HPV strains most likely to cause genital warts and cervical cancer is recommended for boys and girls.

A common sexually transmitted infection marked by genital pain and sores.
Caused by the herpes simplex virus, the disease can affect both men and women.
Pain, itching and small sores appear first. They form ulcers and scabs. After initial infection, genital herpes lies dormant in the body. Symptoms can recur for years.

Chlamydia

Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by a bacteria called chlamydia trachomatis. Usually it doesn’t cause any symptoms and can be easily treated with antibiotics. However, if it isn’t treated early it can spread to other parts of your body and lead to long-term health problems.

Chlamydia affects people of all ages but is most common in young women.

Many who have chlamydia don’t develop symptoms, but they can still infect others through sexual contact. Symptoms may include genital pain and discharge from the vagina or penis.

Antibiotic therapy for the affected patient and the sexual partners of patients is recommended. Screening for other common sexually transmitted infections should also be performed.

Gonorrhea

Gonorrhoea is a sexually transmitted infection (STI). Gonorrhoea can be easily treated and cured with antibiotics. However if it isn’t treated, gonorrhoea can cause infertility (inability to have children) and other health conditions.

Regular screening can help detect instances when an infection is present despite having no symptoms.

Symptoms include painful urination and abnormal discharge from the penis or vagina. Men may experience testicular pain and women may experience pain in the lower stomach. In some cases, gonorrhoea has no symptoms.

Gonorrhoea can be treated with antibiotics.

AIDS is the late stage of HIV infection that occurs when the body’s immune system is badly damaged because of the virus. most people with HIV do not develop AIDS because taking HIV medicine every day as prescribed stops the progression of the disease.

HIV causes AIDS and interferes with the body’s ability to fight infections.

The virus can be transmitted through contact with infected blood, semen or vaginal fluids.

Within a few weeks of HIV infection, flu-like symptoms such as fever, sore throat and fatigue can occur. Then the disease is usually asymptomatic until it progresses to AIDS. AIDS symptoms include weight loss, fever or night sweats, fatigue and recurrent infections.

No cure exists for AIDS, but strict adherence to antiretroviral regimens (ARVs) can dramatically slow the disease’s progress as well as prevent secondary infections and complications.

Syphilis is a bacterial infection usually spread by sexual contact. The disease starts as a painless sore — typically on the genitals, rectum or mouth.
Syphilis spreads from person to person via skin or mucous membrane contact with these sores.

Syphilis develops in stages and symptoms vary with each stage.

The first stage involves a painless sore on the genitals, rectum or mouth. After the initial sore heals, the second stage is characterised by a rash. Then, there are no symptoms until the final stage which may occur years later. This final stage can result in damage to the brain, nerves, eyes or heart.

Syphilis is treated with penicillin. Sexual partners should also be treated.
