Close contact with an infected person is how sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are transferred. Blood, other body fluids, female gamete fluid, and other bodily fluids can all serve as carriers for the bacteria, viruses, or parasites that cause STDs.
According to "Healthline," the symptoms of sexually transmitted diseases, which can affect different body parts, can range from mild to chronic. Before you experience any symptoms, it could take a few days, weeks, months, or even years after the first infection.
But some STDs, including chlamydia and hepatitis B, may not even show any symptoms. This explains why some people might not even be aware that they have it. The following are some of the most typical symptoms of sexually transmitted diseases:
1. Urine may turn dark in colour if you have hepatitis B.
2. Abnormal discharge from the anal region, male organ, or chlamydia, gonorrhoea, or trichomoniasis can occur.
3. Itching around the genitalia can be brought on by genital herpes and pubic lice.
4. The presence of pain during urination or sexual activity can be used to diagnose chlamydia, gonorrhoea, and genital herpes.
5. Bleeding that occurs during or after intimacy is one of the most glaring signs of chlamydia.
6. Muscle and joint pain are possible side effects of hepatitis B.
7. Tiny blisters or sores around the genitalia are a common symptom of syphilis and genital herpes.
8. You might experience pain in your pelvic region if you have chlamydia.
