Sexually Transmitted Diseases

Sexual Health is not just functioning of the genital, its goes beyond it. Sexual Health is caring of the sexual system in the male and female body or care and treatment of problems, which face by male and female as the part of their aging process. Healthy sexuality is more than just the physical act of sex - it requires psychological and emotional health as well.

In today's world very few people speaks about sexual health, but we have to keep in mind and we have to understand that sexual health problem is as usual as other health diseases like heart disease or other diseases. And it is very important for male and female to acquire much information about sexual health, which will help them to have enjoyable and healthy sexual life.

Today sexuality became very common and the result of it is increasing of Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs). The main reason of increasing the STDs is that people won't take precautions at the time of sex.

Sexually transmitted diseases (also called STDs or sexually transmitted infections - STIs) are the infections that can be transferred from one person to another through sexual contact.

STDs caused by a pathogen (e.g., virus, parasite, bacterium, fungus) that spreads from person to person through sexual contact. It can be debilitating, painful, irritating and life threatening. It occurs most commonly to sexually active teenagers and young adults, especially those people who have multiple sex partners. Some common STDs are:

HIV/AIDS

Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a very known and common sexually transmitted disease that causes damage to the body's immune system. Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) refers to a range of specific illnesses that people with HIV may get when their immune system is badly damaged. This can occur many years after HIV infection.

If a person has HIV, it doesn't mean that he/she has AIDS. People with HIV can live many years without developing AIDS. Treatments have been effective in ensuring a sharp drop in the number of people with HIV who develop AIDS.

Chlamydia

Chlamydia is a common sexually transmitted disease (STD) caused by the bacterium, Chlamydia trachomatis, which can damage a woman's reproductive organs. Even though symptoms of chlamydia are usually mild or absent, serious complications that cause irreversible damage, including infertility, can occur "silently" before a woman ever recognizes a problem. Chlamydia also can cause discharge from the penis of an infected man.

Trichomoniasis

Trichomoniasis is an another common sexually transmitted disease (STD) that affects both women and men, although symptoms are mostly common in women.

Prevention about STDs

STD is harmful for life, so always discuss with opposite partner about their sexual and STD history before having sex. Prevention is possible only if sexually active individuals understand STDs and how they are spread.

Use the condom before having sex, which will dramatically reduce the risk of transmission of STDs.
