What Is Sexual Transmitted Diseases (STDs) ?

STDs are infections that are commonly spread by sexual activity, especially vaginal intercourse, anal sex and oral sex.Many times STDs initially do not cause symptoms.This results in a greater risk of passing the disease on to others.Symptoms and signs of disease may include vaginal discharge, penile discharge, ulcers on or around the genitals, and pelvic pain.STDs can be transmitted to an infant before or during childbirth and may result in poor outcomes for the baby.Some STDs may cause problems with the ability to get pregnants

what is the Incubation period ?

Incubation period is the time elapsed between exposure to a pathogenic organism, a chemical, or radiation, and when symptoms and signs are first apparent. In a typical infectious disease, incubation period signifies the period taken by the multiplying organism to reach a threshold necessary to produce symptoms in the host.

Am I at risk for STDs?

While anyone who has sex can get an STD, sexually active gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men (MSM) are at greater risk. In addition to having higher rates of syphilis, more than half of all new HIV infections occur among MSM. Many factors contribute to the higher rates of STDs among MSM:

      • Higher rates of HIV and STDs among MSM increase a person’s risk of coming into contact with an infected partner and becoming infected themselves.
      • Certain behaviors – such as not using condoms regularly and having anal sex – increase STD risk.
      • Homophobia, stigma and discrimination can negatively influence the health of gay and bisexual men.

How are STDs spread?

STDs are spread through sexual contact with someone who has an STD. Sexual contact includes oral, anal and vaginal sex, as well as genital skin-to-skin contact.

Some STDs—li ke HIV, chlamydia and gonorrhea—are spread through sexual fluids, like semen. Other STDs, including HIV and hepatitis B, are also spread through blood. Genital herpes, syphilis, and human papillomavirus (HPV) are most often spread through genital skin-to-skin contact.

How will I know if I have an STD?

Most STDs have no signs or symptoms. You or your partner could be infected and not know it. The only way to know your STD status is to get tested. You can search for a clinic here. Having an STD, such as herpes, makes it easier to get HIV. It’s important to get tested to protect your health and the health of your partner. CDC recommends sexually active gay and bisexual men get tested for:

      • HIV at least once a year
      • Syphilis
      • Hepatitis B
      • Hepatitis C based on risk factors
      • Chlamydia and gonorrhea of the rectum if you’ve had receptive anal sex (been a “bottom”) in the past year
      • Chlamydia and gonorrhea of the penis if you have had insertive anal sex (been a “top”) or received oral sex in the past year
      • Gonorrhea of the throat if you’ve performed oral sex (i.e., your mouth on your partner’s penis, vagina, or anus) in the past year
      • Sometimes, your healthcare provider may suggest a herpes test

Your healthcare provider can offer you the best care if you discuss your sexual history openly. You should have a provider you are comfortable with. You can also visit GetTested to find a confidential, free or low-cost STD testing location near you.

Can STDs be treated?

Some STDs, like gonorrhea, chlamydia and syphilis, can be cured with medication. If you are ever treated for an STD, be sure to finish all of your medicine, even if you feel better. Your partner should be tested and treated, too. It is important to remember that you are at risk for the same or a new STD every time you have sex without using a condom and/or have sex with someone who has an STD.

STDs like herpes and HIV cannot be cured, but medicines can be prescribed to manage symptoms.

Why Medical Screening Matters...........!

How You Can Prevent Sexually Transmitted Diseases

For anyone, choosing to be sexually active means you are at risk for STDs. However, there are many things you can do to protect your health. You can learn about how STDs are spread and how you can reduce your risk of getting infected.

Get Vaccinated: Gay and bisexual men are at greater risk for hepatitis A and B, and human papillomavirus (HPV). For this reason, CDC recommends that you get vaccinated against hepatitis A and B. The HPV vaccine is also recommended for men up to age 26.

Be Safer: Getting tested regularly and getting vaccinated are both important. There are other things you can also do to reduce your risk for STDs:

      • Get to know someone before having sex with them. Talk honestly about STDs and get tested—before you have sex.
      • Use a condom correctly and use one every time you have sex.
      • Think twice about mixing alcohol and/or recreational drugs with sex. For example, when you’re drunk or high, you’re more likely to make decisions that put you at risk for an STD, such as having sex without using a condom. Limit your number of sex partners. You can lower your risk for STDs if you only have sex with one person who only has sex with you.

Know Your Status: If you know your STD status, you can take steps to protect yourself and your partners.

You have the facts now protect yourself and your sexual partners

Abstinence

The most reliable way to avoid infection is to not have sex (anal, vaginal or oral).

Vaccination

Vaccines are safe, effective, and recommended ways to prevent disease

Reduce Number of Sex Partners

Reducing your number of sex partners can decrease your risk for STDs. It is still important that you and your partner get tested, and that you share your test results with one another.

Mutual Monogamy

Its means that you agree to be sexually active with only one person, who has agreed to be sexually active only with you.

Condoms

Correct and consistent use of the male latex condom is highly effective in reducing STD transmission of disease
