This article will go over some of the more common symptoms of STDs in women and men. Not all symptoms affect both sexes so read carefully.
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDS) are conditions that are passed on from one person to another through sexual intercourse.
Chlamydia or the ‘’silent disease’ does not generate STDS symptoms or are asymptomatic. If symptoms occur, females may have increased discharge because the cervix is swollen; frequent urination, or pain while urinating; pain during sexual contact, or bleeding following sexual intercourse; abdominal pains; and irregular menses. For males symptoms may include white or cloudy liquid discharge that cause stains to the underwear; burning sensation, or pain while urinating; and testicles are sore and tender> For both genders, Chlamydia infection to the rectum are seldom symptomatic.
Genital herpes frequently generate mild STDS symptoms or possibly asymptomatic. If they occur, symptoms may include itchiness or tingling sensation in the genital or rectal area; little blisters with fluid inside and when they rupture leave sores; pain while urinating over the sores; headaches; back pain; and symptoms similar to having flu like inflamed glands or increased temperature.
Gonorrhea can possibly be asymptomatic or have non-specific symptoms like infection in the bladder. Symptoms are more noticeable among male individuals. For the women, symptoms may include atypical vaginal discharge from yellow to greenish color that has strong odor; pain while urinating; and rectal discharge or irritated anus. Symptoms for males may include white or yellow penile discharge; pain while urinating; and rectal discharge or irritated anus.
Hepatitis-B to approximately thirty percent of individuals is asymptomatic. If they occur, symptoms of STDS include slight elevation of temperature; headaches; muscle pain; pain in the joints; malaise; no appetite; nausea and vomiting; dark urine and pasty bowel movement; pain in the stomach; skin turns yellow; and whites of eyes turn yellowish.
Syphilis symptoms include painless sores on the genital areas, vulva, cervix, anus, or possibly mouth; small-sized bumps or protuberances in the groin where glands are inflamed; rash with not itch; and elevated temperature or flu-like symptoms.
Genital warts are not always visible among individuals infected by human pappilloma virus (HPV). Warts or flesh and white-colored, smooth, little bumps or sometimes bigger thickset cauliflower-like protuberances can be visible along the genital parts. Women who have warts in the cervix may have some bleeding or atypical color of vaginal discharge.
Scabies infection symptoms include silver or brown lines or burrows found usually in between the fingers and toes, genital areas, surrounding the anus or over the buttocks, elbows, or wrists. Individuals experience pervasive itching especially during night time or after taking a bath at the time the body warms up. Itchiness demonstrates the body’s reaction to the presence of mites.
Crabs or pubic lice are present among infected individuals demonstrating symptoms that include itchiness of the skin; affected area is swollen; sometimes lice and eggs are apparent; and blood spots when lice feed on the skin’s blood vessels.
Candidiasis or thrush infection symptoms among the women include irritation; itchiness; viscous whitish vaginal discharge; redness; pain and swelling of the genital area. Symptoms male individuals may experience include irritation; penis discharge; and swollen head of the penis which makes it difficult to pull back the foreskin.
