The Different Signs of STDs


The first thing one should find out about STDs is who gets them. These, sexually transmitted diseases do not discriminate: You can be of any age, race, religion, financially secure or not, any education level and hold any job from a blue collar one to a CEO. You could be a Jane Doe down the street or some big shot found in the news. Point is anyone who is sexually active is at risk of contracting a sexually transmitted disease or infection that is why whether or not you think you can get an STD, get tested for you may never know if you have one before it’s too late.

While the signs and symptoms of STD’s can vary depending on the type of infection, being aware of the signs and symptoms of sexually transmitted diseases can help you stay healthy. Be on the lookout for these warning signs and if you feel you might have them, even vaguely or remotely, it would be for the better to get tested at a STD clinic near you. Better safe than sorry, after all.

In women, symptoms may include itching around the genitals and/or discharge from the vagina. Recurring severe vaginal yeast infections that are characterized by white milky discharge, a foul odor, and itching may also be present. If you think you may have an STD, never hesitate to seek professional help and get tested at a STD clinic.

Common signs of bacterial STDs are itchiness, sores, and unusual discharge coming from the genitals. However, in most cases, they rarely appear with symptoms and you may be carrying the bacteria without knowing it. If you are sexually active, getting tested on a regular basis can help determine whether or not you have an STD or not. You can catch the disease early on, even without symptoms.

On the other hand, one may also get fungal STDs. People living with HIV get sick for one reason: they usually have opportunistic infections. There are several types of opportunistic infections that we have to be concerned with and one of them is fungal opportunistic infections. These fungal STDs are usually complications of other STD since they arise due to the body’s lessened capabilities to fight them off since they are more focused with your current STD infection. Avoid getting this complication all together by getting tested for STDs. The sooner you treat them, the less likelihood will these opportunistic infections appear.

The correct and consistent use of latex condoms during sexual intercourse- vaginal, anal, or oral-can greatly reduce a person’ s risk of acquiring or transmitting most STDs. However, they only protect you from the seminal fluids but not from other bodily secretions that may still infect you. Meaning to say, they may greatly reduce the risk but are not 100% accurate. Getting routine tests at STD clinics are still your best option to diagnose STDs early and prevent them from recurring.

Protecting oneself and others against STDs is important because many of these diseases have serious complications. AIDS prevention is important because HIV is a life threatening disease that can cause serious illness that damages life entirely. Prevent the spread of the disease and increases your chances of survival by getting routine STD check-ups to know if you are infected or not.
