What are the most common STDs/STIs?
There are many different types of STDs. When it comes to STDs, early detection is the key. Recognizing symptoms is a start, but it's hard to notice the symptoms and that's why getting tested needs be part of a healthy regimen. You need to get tested to keep yourself and your partner protected. Here are the most common STDs/STIs -
Genital herpes is one of the more common STDs. It's estimated that one in five Americans suffer from this disease. It's caused by the HSV-1 and the HSV-2 virus. The main symptom is painful blisters in the genital region. Herpes is a virus and there isn't a cure for it, however you can take medication to manage it.
Chlamydia is one of the most common curable STD. The most common symptoms are pain during sex, and discharge from the penis or vagina. The reason chlamydia is so common is that most people don't exhibit the symptoms for weeks, months, and sometimes years. That's one of the reasons it's important to get tested.
Also referred to as "the clap", gonorrhea is a common bacterial STD. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that there are more than 120 cases of gonorrhea for every 100,000 people in the United States alone, and that number has been growing for several years.
Trichomoniasis or commonly known as "Trich" is another common curable STD, with women more likely to get infected. Common symptoms are vaginal discharge, vaginal odor, irritation, and itching. It's easily treated with a prescription of antibiotics.
HIV is the virus that causes AIDS. Once upon a time, HIV was untreatable but now HIV can be treated by a combination of drugs. Although, they're not a cure they reduce the likelihood of infection from progressing to AIDS.
Syphilis is an STD caused by a bacterial infection by the Treponema pallidum bacterium. If left untreated it can lead to serious complications, but when it's detected early, it can be easily treated with antibiotics.
