Experiencing STD signs or symptoms? If you are sexually active, you are at risk of contracting a disease or infection. According to the Center for Disease Control, "It is estimated that there are 20 million new infections in the United States every year". Maybe the recent discovery of a rash, sore, or blister has launched you into searching for answers to the question that no one wants to have to ask themselves. Have I contracted a sexually transmitted disease? Overall, there are a wide variety of symptoms, early diagnosis and education are key in maintaining a healthy and safe sex life.
Seeking testing and medical treatment should be your number one priority. There are dozens of known STDs, the most common and easiest to treat is trichomoniasis (most men are asymptomatic). Other known diseases and infections include: BV bacterial vaginosis, chlamydia, gonorrhea (also known as the clap), HPV human papillomavirus (also known as the cervical cancer virus), hepatitis, herpes, PID pelvic inflammatory disease, HIV AIDS, and syphilis. Though some diseases do share common symptoms, signs and symptoms vary greatly. Signs and symptoms of a sexually transmitted disease or infection can include one or more of the following: yellowish discharge, sores or blisters around the genital area, pain urinating or during sex, itching around vagina, soft flesh covered warts around genitals, swollen glands combined with fever and body aches. Just because you haven't engaged in intercourse does not mean that you are safe.
In the case of oral sex, having a sore throat, sores or blisters around the mouth may be signs that you have contracted a disease or infection. It is important to realize that you could be infected and not be experiencing any of the signs or symptoms at this time. Therefore you run the risk of passing the condition to your partner. Testing and treatment are vital steps that need to be taken to ensure the sexual health of not only you but your partner. An untreated STD is dangerous and in some cases deadly. Some infections can be cured with antibiotics, while other sexually transmitted diseases can only be managed with medications, which means that you are going to have to learn to live with it.
