Life is very precious. A single mistake is enough to ruin this precious one. So, always feel comfortable to share your problem before it became too late. There is no reason to be worried; now you might be in apprehension what we are asking you to share.

Yes, you are right we are talking about ‘Sexual Health.’ Many complexities come to our mind in this context. Specifically, it is more when we are suffering from Sexual Transmitted Infections (STIs), sometimes we get scared and panicked too.


You can feel embarrassed or ashamed about talking about sexual health or admitting that they’ve been having casual sex, and that can delay them going forward for screenings.  As per a media did the survey, this issue is emerging as the third most dangerous disease after malaria and tuberculosis in India.

Know your body


Being a responsible person, it is essential to know your body and to know what is beneficial for your health. When you found something wrong specifically here, we are giving trace on STIs, don’t neglect, get it checked or consult an expert as soon as possible because your body won’t always show signs and symptoms.

Never left it untreated, it can lead to serious health problems including cervical cancer, liver disease, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), infertility, and pregnancy problems. Even chance is more having some STIs (such as chancroid, herpes, syphilis, and trichomoniasis) may turn into Sexually Transmitted Disease or increase the risk of getting HIV if you are HIV-negative and get exposed to HIV.


Most people with STIs do not have any signs & symptoms and are therefore often ignorant of their ability to pass the infection on to their sexual partner(s). Only because of this we advised you for STI testing on a regular basis whether you are sexually active or not.

In this digital age, technology is becoming so advanced that people are getting their STI checkup through on clicks by sitting at home.


Common Symptoms of STIs

Here we are defining primary symptoms of STIs, we know STIs in other language known as STDs, STIs are infections which spread person to person through sexual contact. For instance, HIV is STI. Many other sexually transmitted diseases are mainly covered by sexual contact such as vaginal, anal and oral sex. You might be going through symptoms like sores on the genitals, irregular growth in the genital area, itching or rashes on your genital, having pain during urination, intercourse or bowel movement, vaginal bleeding, and lower abdominal pain.


Types of STDs/STIs

Let’s highlight some of the most common STDs:-

  1. Chlamydia: One of the most common STDs in both men and women between the 15- 25 years of age. You can feel pain while urinating, or penile or vaginal discharge, however, there may not be any symptoms at all. It can also infect the eyes, mouth, throat, penis, vagina and the rectum.


  1. Gonorrhea: After Chlamydia it is commonly reported STDs, this disease is increased in young mass over the past five years. Symptoms of Gonorrhoea are almost the same as Chlamydia. If not treated in the proper time, it can lead to the fertility problems of women.


  1. Syphilis: This infection caused by bacteria with various symptoms including sores, rashes, and fever. It can seriously affect the brain and heart.


  1. HIV: Once the HIV found it is considered a death sentence. HIV causes AIDS. It is present in blood, vaginal secretions, semen, and breast milk. It can be passed through vaginal, oral, or anal sex without protection. Many people living with HIV look healthy. HIV can’t be treated, but it can be managed with antiretroviral treatment.


  1. Herpes: This is a common skin infection caused by a virus that lives in the nerves that have mild symptoms for most people, including blisters and stinging or tingling in the affected area. Though the virus is ‘hiding’ in the nerves, so you can’t feel the symptoms. It can’t be cured, but most people will find the recurrences become milder and less frequent.


  1. Hepatitis B: This inflammation of the liver caused by the virus can lead to fever, fatigue, jaundice, and nausea. Hepatitis B often has no symptoms, so many people are not aware that they have the infection. Hardly a person can be recovered from Hepatitis B, although most infected people make a full recovery. But it can cause a severe health problem for a small percentage of people, and can also be passed from a mother to her unborn baby. This virus exists in breast milk, vaginal secretions, and semen.
