Does it hurt in your vagina or penis whenever you try to urinate? Have you noticed while or yellow colored discharges with your urine? Have you observed redness or swelling near the vagina or penis? If you have answered “yes” to those queries, you can be sure you are suffering from STD (sexually transmitted diseases)). Some of the other indications of this disease are night sweats, loose stools, or weight loss. It is imperative that you visit the physician and get yourself examined and treated to eliminate this disease. More often than not, sexually transmitted diseases such as syphilis, gonorrhea, HIV, Zika, Trichomoniasis, and Chlamydia, spread when an individual indulges in sex with another individual suffering from the disease.
I never had sex with others
It does not matter, as these diseases also spread if you are employing a used needle to inject drugs intravenously, and someone suffering from STD had used that needle previously. This is common among drug addicts as well as sportspersons, when they inject performing boosting drugs with a contaminated needle.
Can one person suffer from different variants of STDs
Of course! It is quite common to find people suffering from multiple STDs. However, only certain types of such diseases co-exist with each other. A prime example is gonorrhea and Chlamydia. While the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae is responsible for the former, the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis causes the latter STD.
Indications of Chlamydia and its treatment
This STD can be transmitted during oral, anal, or vaginal sexual contact with an infected person. The biggest problem is that many individuals suffering from it do not experience any symptoms. Left untreated, it can cause pelvic inflammatory disease, which permanently damages a woman’s reproductive organs, and can be fatal too as such damages might result in ectopic pregnancy. Although this disease can be treated with antibiotics, one first needs to ascertain whether they are suffering from this particular STD.
I feel ashamed visiting the gynecologist
Most people, suffering from sexually transmitted diseases feel ashamed to visit the gynecologist. It is the same with those suffering from Chlamydia too. The good news is that you now have the option of STD testing kits. While most kits contain reagents that can check for a wide range of STDs, most of them cannot detect Chlamydia. Therefore, you should specifically purchase test kits Chlamydia for detecting this bacterium. Search online for test kits Chlamydia to find online stores that sell this kit. Ensure that you purchase the kit from a reputable online store. The “how to use” manual accompanying the kit also contains details of antibiotics you should take to eradicate this disease permanently.
