Sexually Transmitted Diseases
Chlamydia:Chlamydia:chlamydia is caused by a bacteria called Chlamydia trachomatis
Early symptoms of HIV can include:
• swollen lymph nodes
• general aches and pains
• skin rash
• sore throat
No cure exists for HIV/AIDS, but antiretroviral regimens (ARVs) can dramatically slow the disease's progress as well as prevent secondary infections and complications.
The virus is transmitted in bodily fluids that include:
• vaginal and rectal fluids
• breast milk
Some of the ways HIV is spread from person to person include:
• through vaginal or anal sex — the most common route of transmission, especially among men who have sex with men
• during pregnancy, labor, or delivery from a woman to her baby
HPV is a virus that is passed skin-to-skin through sexual intercourse or other forms of skin-to-skin contact of the genitals.
HPV may not cause symptoms at once, but they can appear years later.
Some types can lead to warts, while others can cause cancer.
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.
The first stage involves a painless sore on the genitals, rectum or mouth.
After the initial sore heals, the second stage is characterized 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.
Syphilis is caused by a spirochete (a spiral-shaped bacteria) called Treponema pallidum. You can get the bacteria by:
• direct contact with a syphilis sore (usually found on the vagina, anus, rectum, in the mouth, or on the lips)
• during vaginal, anal, or oral sex with an infected person
• an infected mother can pass syphilis to her unborn child, which can result in serious complications or even death of the unborn child
