STD (Sexually Transmitted Disease) is a broad term used to describe diseases or disorders caused by various sexually transmitted infections (STIs). These diseases can affect any part of the body, but the most common sites affected are the mouth and throat, genitals, and urinary tract. There are many types of STDs, and the diseases can affect many different parts of the body. Some of the most common STDs include gonorrhea, syphilis, chlamydia, herpes, and hepatitis.
Main Causes of STDs
• Trichophyton vaginalis and crab lice, and scabies mites are examples of parasites.
• All of the following viruses: HIV/AIDS, hepatitis B, herpes simplex virus, cytomegalovirus (CMV), and Zika
• The bacteria that cause chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis, among other diseases
Many people think that there are only three major causes of STDs. However, this is not true. There are many other causes of STDs besides the ones listed above. For example, the following are also some of the main causes of STDs:
• Poor personal hygiene
• Being born with a low immune system
• Having oral sex
• Being older than 30
• Having multiple sexual partners
• Having unsafe sex
• Eating foods and drinks contaminated with sexually transmitted infections
Treatment of STDs
If you have a sexually transmitted infection, you should get treatment as soon as possible. You need to know how long you have had the infection and how it was contracted. Treatment will usually involve drugs that fight the disease. The treatment for any sexually transmitted disease is usually done in combination. For instance, gonorrhea, a type of STD, is treated with two antibiotics. It is important to understand that some STDs will not cause any symptoms. You should have regular screenings for STDs.
You can treat these conditions with antibiotics. In the case of AIDS and other immunosuppressive conditions, treatment involves highly active antiretroviral therapy or HAART. If you have sex with a partner who has an STI, you may be exposed to an STI as well. For example, if your partner has gonorrhea, you can get it too. To avoid this, you can wear protection during sexual contact with your partner. The type of protection you need depends on whether you and your partner are having oral sex or unprotected sexual contact.
