STDs / STIs in a few words:
Chlamydia and Gonorrhea are serious diseases caused by the bacteria Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae , although often without apparent symptoms, except sometimes abnormal flows. If left untreated, they can lead to women infertility, and men’s inflammation of the lining of the urethra. If these diseases are transmitted to pregnant women, they can cause a serious eye infection in the newborn, or even loss of vision or pneumonia.
Hepatitis is an STD / STI caused by different viruses that attack the liver. The hepatitis virus (B or C) may be transmitted during sexual intercourse, but also during activities involving skin piercing such as tattooing, acupuncture or intravenous drug use. The consequences of the contraction of such viruses may vary depending on the severity of the disease, but can lead to failure, and in cases of degeneration of the disease, death.
HIV , Human Immunodeficiency Virus, is a virus that causes the immune system and weakens it, making the body unable to fight certain diseases, making people more vulnerable to other infections and complications. Can be transmitted by any infected body fluid (blood, sperm, vaginal secretions and breast milk) and by blood. The main tests allow detection on average 1 month after exposure to risk. A second control test is often requested in the following weeks to confirm the diagnosis. This disease is incurable but it is possible to treat HIV quickly and thus to a better chance of living longer and healthier.
Syphilis is an STD caused by the Treponema pallidum bacteria. It can be transmitted through oral or anal intercourse. The first symptoms appear on average after the infection and are characterized by a visible ulcer at the site where the bacteria entered. In the process of being treated, besides the ulcer, skin rashes on the body and flu-like symptoms may occur. Penicillin is usually chosen for the treatment of this condition.
HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) actually has several types of viruses. Some of them cause condyloma, others can be the cause of cancer and cancerous lesions of the cervix.
