The stigmas and the social taboos attached with the diseases of sexual origin has kept them one of the most ignored diseases of all the medical fields. Ignoring these diseases can lead to various problems that can affect other major organs of the body. 

The diseases that are classified under this field originate from the infections in the organs of the male and female reproductive system. The problems with some of these diseases is that they pass from the infected sexual partner to the other normal partner. These diseases are known as sexually transmitted diseases and commonly known by the acronym STDs. The most common diseases under this category include:

  • Syphilis
  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhea
  • Mycoplasma genitalium
  • Trichomoniasis
  • Human papilloma virus (HPV)
  • Herpes
  • HIV/AIDS

You can opt for sexologist online consultation if you are facing any issues to understand if you require any treatment for the particular diseases. 

Syphilis:
This disease is a significant health problem globally and is one of the most common of the STDs. It is a chronic systemic infection characterized by an active period punctuated with periods of latency. The spirochete responsible for the infection, Treponema pallidum, rapidly penetrates intact mucous membranes or microscopic abrasions in the skin and in a few hours into the lymphatics resulting into a systemic infection. There are various stages in the development of this disease and other organs may get involved in the later stages as the disease develops. 

Cardiovascular manifestations usually develop 10-40 years after the onset of infection and these include endarteritis obliterans of the vaso vasorum which provides blood supply to large vessels, uncomplicated aortitis, aortic regurgitation, saccular aneurysm (usually of the ascending aorta) or coronary ostial stenosis. With the advent of modern medicine, cardiovascular syphilis is rarely seen in the today’s world. 

Neurological manifestations fall in the following two categories:

  • Asymptomatic neurosyphilis
  • Symptomatic neurosyphilis

Asymptomatic nuerosyphilis is diagnosed by the presence of CSF abnormalities that shpws up in clinical tests. 
Symptomatic neurosyphilis include meningeal, meningovascular and parenchymatous syphilis. General paresis and tabe dorsalis fall in the last category. The symptoms usually occur in less than 1 year after infection for meningeal syphilis, up to 10 years for meningovascular syphilis, approximately 20 years for general paresis and at 25-30 years for tabe dorsalis. 

Chlamydia:
This disease is caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis and remains asymptomatic in more than 50% of males and around 80-90% of females. Thus it has a high potential of spreading. It is the most common cause of nongonoccal urethritis and postgonoccal urethritis. 
In females it can cause PID (Pelvic Inflammatory Disease) which indicates the inflammation of the fallopian tubes and perihepatitis. Also commonly found symptoms are dysuria, frequency in urination and pyuria (presence of pus or white blood cells). 

Gonorrhea:
This is a disease caused by the bacteria Nisseria gonorrhoeae and manifests as cervicitis, urethritis, proctitis and conjunctivitis and if left untreated, it can lead to local complications like endometritis, salpingitis, tuboovarian abscess, bartholinitis, peritonitis and perihepatitis in females. In males, it causes periurethritis and epididymitis. 
Most of the infected males remain asymptomatic and are the main spreaders of the infection. The common symptoms in the males that do have them are urethral discharge and dysuria (painful or difficult urination). 
The minor symptoms in infected females include scant vaginal discharge from the inflamed cervix and dysuria (painful or difficult urination). 

Mycoplasma Genitalium:
This is relatively a new bacterium of the mycoplasma species and was identified as recently as 1981. It is a pathogenic bacterium and lives on the skin cells of the urinary and genital tracts in humans. It is transmitted as a sexually transmitted infection and is difficult to manage due to resistance to multiple antibiotics. It causes epididymitis in men, urethral syndrome in women and urethritis in both men and women. 

Trichomoniasis:
This disease is caused by Trichomonas vaginalis is present in the genitourinary tract and cause urethritis and vaginitis. Men also suffer from urethritis, epididymitis and prostatitis due to this disease. In women it causes malodorous vaginal discharge (often yellow) vulvar erythema and itching, dysuria and urinary frequency and dyspareunia (difficult or painful sexual intercourse). 

Human papilloma virus (HPV):
There are many strains of this virus. The infection caused is usually asymptomatic in 90% of the cases and resolves in around 2 years. However, in the remaining 10% of the cases it causes warts and precancerous lesions. This can further lead to cancer of the site affected. The sites may include cervix, vulva, vagina, penis, anus, mouth or throat and in the case of cervical cancer, nearly all the cases are due to this infection. It causes genital warts and also warts in other parts of the body such as feet, elbows, knees, fingernails or face. 

Herpes:
Genital herpes is simply called herpes and is caused by Herpes simplex virus. It typically presents as formation of blisters that break open as painful ulcers. Typical symptoms are flu-like and include fever, aching or swollen lymph nodes. Genital herpes in men present as lesions on glans penis, shaft of the penis or other parts of the genital region, on the inner thigh, buttocks or anus. The regions affected in women are pubis, clitoris or other parts of the vulva, buttocks or anus. 

HIV/AIDS:
Acquired Immunodeficiency Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) is a disease caused by the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and causes severe to almost total loss of immunity thus leading to development of multiple infections in the patient. The modes of transmission of this virus are:

  • Sexual intercourse with an infected partner
  • Transmission through blood transfusion of an infected patient
  • Delivery of baby by infected mother.

    The various infections caused by this disease is due to the low immunity attributed to this infection. Opportunistic infections like pneumonia caused by the bacterium Pneumocystis jirovecii and Kaposi’s sarcoma are usually present in patients with AIDS. 

    Apart from these diseases, many other diseases are classified as sexually transmitted diseases. The medical specialist that studies, diagnoses and treats these diseases is known as a sexologist. You can opt for sexologist online consultation if you wish to inquire anything about the issues you are facing.
