Any venereal disease, as a rule,proceeds in two forms. So, the form of the disease can be acute, and can become chronic. The acute form is characteristic for the very beginning of the disease. The infection that has just arisen is always acute and accompanied by any symptoms. Symptoms of venereal diseases can be very different, it all depends on the disease itself. Any venereal disease has an incubation period from one day to a week. After this time, men have some symptoms resembling urethritis. Among them can be a burning sensation and a burning sensation when urinating, all sorts of secretions. Women usually have symptoms of urethritis and colpitis. There are also discharge from the vagina, an unpleasant burning sensation, itching, pain when urinating. Infection resulting from oral sex is often accompanied by angina, and infection as a result of anal sex leads to a proctitis (inflammatory process of the rectum). Very many people consider such signs of sexually transmitted diseases as non-serious and do not require treatment and referral to a doctor. It is this misconception that often leads to the fact that the venereal disease passes from a severe form into a chronic one. The chronic form is very dangerous in that the symptoms practically disappear or take unremarkable forms. The patient naively believes that the disease has cured by itself, and the need to visit the doctor does not disappear at all.
Forms and symptoms of venereal infections
Few people know that it is very rare cases whenthere is an independent cure. Chronic form of the disease suggests that the infection is firmly entrenched in your body and feels quite comfortable. She no longer needs to show any symptoms, the body no longer struggles with infection, as in the acute stage of the disease. A person becomes a carrier of infection. Now the human body can safely be called a time bomb. No doctor can accurately determine when the chronic stage of the disease has come, when exactly the infectious infection will make itself felt, which organs will suffer and what complications should be expected from venereal diseases. Now a person becomes dangerous for everyone with whom he has sex. Unprotected sex can lead to the spread of the disease further and further. The chronic form, as already mentioned, is very dangerous for its asymptomatic. The sick person can even feel great, feel no discomfort and not suspect that he has an infection. But do not rely on the fact that the acute form of the symptoms will manifest. There are cases when the acute form of a venereal disease is practically asymptomatic or does not have pronounced symptoms. In medicine, there is such a thing as nonspecific symptoms. It means that the symptoms accompanying a venereal disease are typical for several sexually transmitted infections: from chlamydia to gonorrhea. In this situation, it is impossible to identify the causative agent of infection. For this, it is necessary to pass all tests that confirm or rule out the presence of sexual infection. Sometimes it is very difficult to put a specific diagnosis and pinpoint a venereal disease. This is due to the fact that, as a rule, a person immediately becomes infected with a whole bunch of infections. Nevertheless, before proceeding to treatment, it is necessary to determine exactly which causative agent caused the disease and at what stage it is located. Every venereal disease and every infection requires special and individual treatment. If you suspect a sexual infection, you should take tests for several different infections. Typically, an analysis is given for at least 10 of the most common sexual infections. There are also sexual infections, the first signs of which are specific and specific only to them. So, what are the venereal diseases and what are the distinctive features they have? There is a huge number of different sexual infections, you should tell briefly about some of them.
Symptoms and signs of gonorrhea
First of all, gonococci affect the cervixwomen and the urethra in men and women. Disease in the process can lead to infection of the eyes, rectum and pharynx. The incubation period of gonorrhea is from two days to two weeks. The main symptom of gonorrhea should be considered pain when urinating. Frequent urges to urinate, as well as burning, are usually one of the first symptoms of the disease. Later, purulent discharge may appear. As a result of oral sex, there may be a lesion of the pharynx accompanied by pharyngitis or laryngitis. The distinctive features include difficulty in swallowing and sore throat. If gonorrhea is not treated, the consequences can be the saddest. As a result of the development of the disease, purulent inflammation of the ovaries in women and testicles in men may develop. Gonorrhea affects both the joints. The most sad consequence of untreated gonorrhea can be infertility in women and men. Very often gonorrhea occurs without pronounced symptoms, and its carriers do not even suspect the presence of infection.
Symptomatics of urogenital chlamydia and gardnerellosis
Most often chlamydia in both men and womenoccurs almost asymptomatically. Perhaps a burning sensation and the appearance of minor secretions in both sexes. Untreated clamidiosis very often leads to terrible consequences. Men develop prostatitis, orchitis, testicular tumor, epididymitis, impotence and even infertility. Chlamydia in women can lead to inflammation of the uterine appendages: adnexitis, cervicitis, salpingitis, endometritis, salpingo-oophoritis. All these diseases can lead to the fact that a woman will not be able to bear a child, pregnancy can result in miscarriage, often clamidiosis leads to infertility. Chlamydia can even infect a baby in the womb, which can lead to its further disability. In medicine, gardnerellez is otherwise called bacterial vaginosis. Immediately it is worth saying that gardnerelles are present in normal in any healthy body. A healthy person has relatively few of them, and a positive flora hinders their development. But as soon as the positive flora is broken (abortions in women, hormonal failures, etc.), gardnerelles immediately begin to multiply in large numbers, settle in the genitourinary system. One of the main signs of gardnerellez is an abundant discharge from the vagina, which has an unpleasant smell of fish. Gardnerelosis in women can lead to erosion of the cervix and endometritis. Gardnerelli in men in a normal state do not take root on the genitals. They can appear there only as a result of any serious imbalance. If a man has gardnerella, then this is a serious reason for the venereologist and urologist to suspect the presence of any sexual disease. Gardnerellez in women can also testify to the presence of an infectious disease, sexually transmitted.
Symptoms of candidiasis
Candidiasis of the genitals most oftenIt is accompanied by a curdled discharge from the vagina in women. Men may have a white waxy coating on the glans penis. Allocations are most often accompanied by a burning sensation and itching, which after sexual intercourse or taking a hot bath is only intensified. And if candidiasis in women is a common phenomenon, candidiasis in men is a serious reason to call a doctor to check for sexually transmitted infections. There are many other sexual infections that have their specific and nonspecific symptoms. It is necessary to understand that any disease is easier to treat, while it manifests itself in an acute form. If it has passed into a chronic stage, it is much more difficult to treat it. When the first signs of infection appear, you should immediately consult a doctor to exclude or confirm the disease. Timely appeal for medical help will get rid of the problem and avoid serious consequences. Strong to you health.
