Until now, these diseases are embarrassing for many people, and sometimes their presence causes the disintegration of families and birth of sick children. So, these infections are not only a medical problem, but also a great social problem.
Features of Disease
As the study of diseases that are transmitted through sexual contact, it was found that they are infected with quite a lot of decent men and women of all ages, many of whom were not even aware of the carriers of “indecent” disease until the visit. Many interesting facts about their health are clarified by accident, when examining an entirely different reasons.
At present, the most “popular” series of intimate infections include:
• bacterial infections gonorrhea and syphilis,
• Viral diseases – human papilloma, herpes and HIV infection
• infections in which the blame for the simplest – is trichomoniasis, chlamydia, and mycoplasmosis,
• yeast – yeast,
• caused by insects – pubic lice.
And it is by no means all of the infections – is the most famous and popular.
On special forms of sex
Modern society has become more tolerant of sexual minorities and non-traditional forms of sexual relations, and venereologists only added work. Many people naively believe that the non-classical form of intimacy does not pick up sexually transmitted diseases, especially the widely circulated misconception is about oral sex.
However, in practice, most infections can be purchased for any form of contact – gonorrhea, syphilis, or trichomonas well everywhere, in all parts of the body. When forms of anal relations man can earn urethritis, very bad healing, and a woman – genital warts, which are then very unpleasant to remove.

The first “bells” would be unusual or profuse discharge from the genital tract, and their peculiar smell, the appearance of pimples, erosions or ulcers on the genitals, discomfort, burning, or pain after sex, painful urination.
Time of onset of symptoms may take from one day to almost a month after exposure. However, a number of infections in normal circumstances can be a do not show up to a certain flow and hidden. This is dangerous, and in terms of infection, and in terms of future health.
Sometimes the display is so small that they do not pay attention, triggering the disease to severe stages. In addition, under current conditions it is likely the emergence of a mixed infection of several “ills” are mutually aggravating each other. Identify them only when a specific laboratory evaluation.
Furthermore, even if there are typical manifestations of the disease, get tested still need – many infections are similar to each other, but they are treated very differently.
