Hello again Gentlemen and welcome, yes it is that time again here I am to bring you the second instalment of knowing your common STD signs. So let’s pull up that chair get yourself really comfy, oh do not forget your cuppa and so I shall begin.

Common STD Signs

Once again these STDs which I am going to be discussing with you will mostly reach their peak occurrence level if you are between the ages of 15-30 years old. It is vitally important that I try to educate you in providing this knowledge in a way which you can access it when you have a moment to relax and have that cuppa, and that once you are aware of the STDs that could occur if you have unprotected sex that you are also aware of what to do if you catch one. But to be honest I would much prefer to educate you and make you aware that using a condom when having numerous partners is one of the best decisions you will ever make in your life. For the cost of around three drinks in a nightclub you can protect yourself and if you are still young and have only limited funds ask your parents to provide them for you, they will be proud that you are willing to use a protection method that will provide the correct protection barrier between you and any future partners. 

First up is the Herpes Simplex Virus, which is known as just herpes. This can be either an oral virus or a genital one, which can be passed from person to person through having genital sex or coming into contact with someone who has the virus on their mouth area. So basically by having sex and also by kissing a partner you could see symptoms such as these appear,

  • Having inflamed lymph nodes.
  • Lower back pains.
  • Fever plus a loss of appetite.

The appearance of the herpes virus blisters around the genital and mouth areas.

Next is Syphilis, this is a bacterium which is often caught and spread through infected people having anal, oral and vaginal sex. It displays these common symptoms,

  • Headache.
  • Rash.
  • Sore throat with enlarged nymph lodes.

It is vitally important that if you or anyone that you know confides in you about experiencing any of these symptoms that you or they should go to an STD clinic so that you can be tested and given the correct medication if you do have a STD infection. 

Better still you could remember to look after your sexual health with a quick trip to a sex clinic every few months and the minute you get a clean bill of sexual health try to keep it this way by using a condom as a good barrier protector. By being educated and proactive yourself you may encourage your friends to also do the same, just imagine if every male took a few male friends with them to get tested and they then used condoms we could then hopefully lessen the spread of these STDs.
