Sexually transmitted diseases are very unpleasant

Despite the increasing awareness of the risk of sexual intercourse without proper protection and the increasing use of condoms, which are the only ones that protect us from infection, the number of sexually transmitted diseases continues to increase. There are many reasons why we avoid condoms, from the discomfort we buy when we buy them to the belief that sex is much more intense without them.

Most sexually transmitted diseases are not harmful if treatment is started on time. It is considered to be the most common sexually transmitted disease candidiasis. It is caused by the fungus Candida albicans whose natural habitat is the female vagina. An infection occurs when, due to antibiotic treatment, impaired immunity, and other adverse effects, the fungus begins to reproduce unnaturally. Symptoms of the disease are unpleasant white, thick discharge with lumps, and may be associated with itching symptoms. The occurrence of vaginitis is also relatively common. It is caused by a microorganism that also naturally lives in the vagina and propagates in specific conditions such as stress. The disease manifests as a discharge of an unpleasant odor and sometimes as an irritation after intercourse.

trichomoniasis is an infection of the vagina and vagina or urinary tube caused by the microorganism Trichomonac vaginalis. The conditions for reproduction of this parasite are particularly favorable during menstruation when the female immunity is weakened.

Contrary to popular belief gonorrhea is a very common sexually transmitted disease. It causes gonococcus, a microorganism that lives in the sexual organs. If left untreated, or left untreated, it can cause fallopian tubes, and in men, the semen, and ultimately, infertility. The danger lies in the fact that a woman infected with gonorrhea can transmit the disease to her child at birth, and then she has serious eye problems. Unlike most other sexually transmitted diseases, this affects men first and foremost.

Genital herpes is a viral disease that is responsible for one of six types of herpes virus. Mostly it is a common herpes virus, HSV2. The first virus infection usually goes unnoticed, but the infected person becomes a carrier of the virus, which can remain hidden for years. Herpes is usually the outbreak triggered by intense fatigue, physical exertion or intense arousal.

Chlamydial infections it is caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis, and if left untreated it can cause inflammation of the fallopian tubes and thus infertility. The disease can also spread to the uterus and ovaries, so as with gonorrhea, children whose mothers gave birth without knowing that they are infected are particularly at risk. These are just some of the transmissible diseases that circulate daily among the sexually active population, so think carefully next time whether you are so uncomfortable buying a condom and whether having sex without protection is worth the risk.
