There are numerous diseases that are passed on either exclusively or primarily through intimate sexual contact. These include more commonly known diseases such as acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), chancroid, chlamydia, genital herpes, gonorrhea, lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV), granuloma inguinale, some types of hepatitis, syphilis, and trichomoniasis, and others. Genital candiasis also can be transmitted through sexual contact. Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) affect more than 12 million men and women in the United States each year. Many are teenagers or young adults.
RISKY LIFESTYLE PRACTICES
Using drugs or alcohol increases your chances of getting STDs because these substances can interfere with your judgment and your ability to use a condom properly.
Intravenous (IV) drug use puts a person at higher risk for HIV and hepatitis B and hepatitis C because IV drug users usually share needles.
The more sexual partners you have, the higher your chance of being exposed to HIV or other STDs. This is because it is difficult to know whether a person is infected, or had sex with people who are more likely to be infected due to intravenous drug use or other risk factors.
Sometimes, early in the infection, there may be no symptoms, or symptoms may be easily confused with other illnesses.
You cannot tell by looking at someone whether he or she is infected with HIV or another STD.

SIGNS & EARLY SYMPTOMS OF SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASES
It is important to detect sexually transmitted diseases in their early stages so that prompt treatment can begin and, in the case of some diseases, irreparable damage to the body can be prevented. Use the table below to familiarize yourself with the beginning stages of various STDs.
DISEASE FIRST SYMPTOMS
AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome)
Headache, night sweats, unexplained weight loss, fatigue, swollen lymph nodes and glands, persistent fever, oral thrush (a heavy, whitish coating on the tongue and the insides of the mouth), recurrent vaginal yeast infections, persistent diarrhea, lung infections.
Itching in the genital area, pain when urinating, a thick odorless vaginal discharge.
For women: a white vaginal discharge that resembles cottage cheese, a burning sensation when urinating, itching, painful intercourse. For men: a clear, watery urethral discharge. Often, however, there are no symptoms at all.
Itching, burning in the genital area, discomfort while urinating, a watery vaginal or urethra discharge, weeping, fluid-filled eruptions in the vagina or on the penis.
Soft, cauliflower-like growths appearing either singly or in clusters in and around the vagina, anus, penis, groin, and/or scrotal area.
For women: frequent and painful urination, a cloudy vaginal discharge, vaginal itching, inflammation of the pelvic area, rectal discharge, abnormal uterine bleeding. For men: a yellowish, pus-filled urethral discharge. Often, however, there are no symptoms, especially in women.
Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)
A pus-filled vaginal discharge with fever and lower abdominal pain.
A sore on the genitalia, rash, patches of flaking tissue, fever, sore throat, sores in the mouth or anus
For women: Vaginal itching and pain, with a foamy, greenish or yellow foul-smelling discharge. For men: A clear urethral discharge.
STD COMPLICATIONS RESULTING FROM AN INFECTION
Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), which can damage a woman's fallopian tubes and result in pelvic pain and sterility.
MoonDragon's Womens Health Information: Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)
Tubal pregnancies (where the pregnancy grows in the fallopian tube instead of the womb), sometimes fatal to the mother and always fatal to the fetus.
MoonDragon's Pregnancy Information: Ectopic (Tubal) Pregnancy
Death or severe damage to babies born to all infected women. Sterility - the inability to have children - in both men and women.
MoonDragon's Womens Health Information: Female Infertility
MoonDragon's Womens Health Information: Male Infertility
Cancer of the cervix in women.
MoonDragon's Womens Health Information: Cervical Cancer
Damage to major organs, such as the heart, liver, kidney and brain, if STDs go untreated.

Death (e.g., with HIV infection).
High-risk behaviors include having sex - vaginal, anal or oral with:
Other Risk Factors Not Directly Related To Sexual Transmission
- A person who has an STD. This is the riskiest behavior. If you know your partner is infected, avoid intercourse (including oral sex). If you do decide to have sex with an infected person, always be sure to use a new condom from start to finish, every time.
- Someone who has shared needles to inject drugs with an infected person.
- Someone whose past partner(s) were infected. Because AIDS virus can be in the body a long time before a person feels sick, if your partner had intercourse with a person infected with HIV, he or she could pass it on to you even if the sexual contact was a long time ago - even as long as 10 years - and even if your partner seems perfectly healthy.
Health care workers and emergency persons can become infected with HIV from needle sticks and/or handling blood or other bodily fluids of an infected individual. This is especially hazardous in the emergency room where situations can become messy and before infectious status is confirmed or in the field with emergency persons, police officers and fire fighters dealing with injured infected individuals. Laboratory workers running test assays on infected blood and become infected through accidental exposure (a dropped blood vacutainer and broken glass, as an example). Precautions using gloves, lab coats, face masks and other universal precautions taken will help to prevent most infectious situations, but they can and do still occur.
People transfused with infected blood have been infected. Most donated blood has been tested, but contamination still occurs.
Infections can be transferred to a newborn baby from his or her mother at the time of birth. Precautions may be taken if infectious status is known or afterward through the use of medications given to the infant.
To lessen the chance of being infected with AIDS or other STDs, people who take part in risky sexual behavior should always use a condom.
Use of a condom is also important for an uninfected pregnant woman because it can help protect her and her unborn child from STDs.
MoonDragon's Womens Health Information: STD - Condom Use For Prevention
Antibiotics are the usual treatment for both syphilis and gonorrhea. It is important to take any prescription antibiotics for the full course, even if symptoms abate. Do not stop taking the medication early.
Many health care providers consider cervical dysplasia (a precancerous condition of the cervix characterized by the formation of abnormal tissue in the cervix) to be a sexually transmitted disease. They believe that it is caused by papilloma viruses, the same viruses that cause venereal warts.
MoonDragon's Womens Health Information: Cervical Dysplasia
Many STDs that were in decline are becoming more common. Many experts link this rise to the AIDS epidemic; because the immune system is compromised, AIDS increases the susceptibility to disease of every kind.

In a child of any age, the presence of a sexually transmitted disease is automatically considered to be a sign of sexual abuse, which should be pursued accordingly.
COMMON PARASITE & BACTERIAL STD INFECTIONS
CRABS (PUBIC LICE & SCABIES)
Crabs, also known as pubic lice and scabies, are sexually transmitted, but are considered parasitic infestations rather than infectious diseases. See the following links for more detailed information about these types of parasitic infestations.
MoonDragon's Womens Health Information: Lice (Pubic & Head Lice)
MoonDragon's Womens Health Information: Scabies
This section deals primarily with one of the two of the more common sexually transmitted diseases, gonorrhea and syphilis.
Gonorrhea is caused by a microscopic organism called Neisseria gonorrhoeae. These bacteria are commonly referred to as gonococci. In 2002, there were some 351,000 cases reported to U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the United States. Most, about 75 percent of the cases, were found in people aged 15 to 29 years. This is not a common infection in the United States, but it is not rare, either. In women, gonorrhea often causes no symptoms. When it does, they include frequent and painful urination, vaginal discharge, abnormal menstrual bleeding, acute inflammation in the pelvic area, and rectal itching and bleeding. Men with gonorrhea usually do experience symptoms, including a yellow discharge of pus and mucus from the penis and slow, difficult, and painful urination. Symptoms usually appear between 2 and 14 days after sexual contact in men and between 7 and 21 days after sexual contact in women.
If not treated, the infection can travel through the bloodstream and go into the bones, joints, tendons, and other tissues, causing a systemic illness with mild fever, achy feeling, inflamed joints, and, occasionally, skin lesions. At this stage, the organism is difficult to detect, and the condition is often misdiagnosed as simple arthritis. In men, complications of gonorrhea can include sterility and urethral stricture. In women, the infection can spread into the uterus and fallopian tubes, resulting in pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). This can cause ectopic pregnancy and infertility in as many as 10 percent of affected women. See the following link for more detailed information.
MoonDragon's Womens Health Information: STD - Gonorrhea
This section deals primarily with the other one of the two of the more common sexually transmitted diseases, gonorrhea and syphilis.
Syphilis is fairly rare in the United States, but it seems to be making a comeback. In fact, it declined about 80 percent from 1990 to 2000, but since then has risen steadily, reaching a current total of about 7,100 cases a year in the United States. There has been a 12-fold rise in the incidence of the disease among gay and bisexual men, according to the CDC. Not only that, but a drug-resistant strain has emerged that defeats the treatment of choice (azithromycin [Zithromax]) given in tablet form). As a result, an older treatment consisting of painful shots of penicillin given in both buttocks is being used once again in some cases.
Syphilis is caused by a type of bacteria called Treponema pallidum. This disease is occasionally contracted through close physical contact such as kissing, as well as through sexual intercourse. If not treated, this illness progresses, usually over the course of many years, through three basic stages.
This disease can lay dormant for up to 20 years. For more detailed information see the following link below.
- In the first stage, 10 to 90 days after contact, a chancre (a red, painless ulcer) appears at the spot where the bacteria entered the body.
- In the second stage, perhaps 4 to 10 weeks after contact, a rash and patches of flaking tissue appear in the mouth, palms of the hands, soles of the feet, or genital area. There may be systemic symptoms, usually mild, as well, such as headache, nausea, and general discomfort.
- If the disease progresses to its third stage (which is rare in the United States), brain damage, hearing loss, heart disease, and/or blindness can occur.
MoonDragon's Womens Health Information: STD - Syphilis
TREATMENT RECOMMENDATIONS & SUGGESTIONS
Use a latex (not sheepskin) condom for any sexual activity until the infection has cleared completely. These diseases are highly contagious. Be aware, however, that even the use of a condom does not guarantee protection against STDs. Abstinence is the only way to avoid any chance of transmitting the infection.
If you are taking penicillin or other antibiotic for sexually transmitted disease, be sure to add some form of Acidophilus to your diet to replace "friendly" bacteria.
Antibiotics are the usual treatment for both syphilis and gonorrhea. It is important to take any prescribed antibiotic for the full course, even if symptoms abate. Do not stop taking the medication early.
If you are taking antibiotics, avoid alcohol. Alcohol lessens antibiotic effectiveness.
A strain of gonococci that are resistant to both penicillin and tetracycline has spread rapidly since it was first identified in 1985. This strain is, however, curable with other antibiotics.
Many health care providers consider cervical dysplasia (a precancerous condition of the cervix) to be a sexually transmitted disease. They believe that it is caused by papilloma virus, the same viruses that cause venereal warts. See Cervical Dysplasia and Genital Warts for more information.
Many STDs that were in decline are becoming more common. Many experts link this rise to the AIDS epidemic; AIDS increases susceptibility to disease of every kind.
DIET & NUTRITION
In addition to conventional medical treatment and lifestyle changes used to treat and prevent a sexually transmitted disease or disorder, using nutritional therapy and other holistic approaches can help your body to strengthen its immune system. A strong immune system is important in fighting off any type of infectious invader and maintaining your health and well-being.
Unless otherwise specified, the following recommended doses are for adults over the age of 18. For a child between 12 and 17 years, reduce the dose to 3/4 the recommended dose. For a child between 6 and 12 years old, use 1/2 the recommended dose, and for a child under 6, use 1/4 the recommended dose.
