Sexually-transmitted infections and sexually-transmitted diseases are among of today’s most serious problems that need attention. They are issues that continue to afflict more and more people, and if nothing is done, they can easily infect all of us.

 

So, it is important that we become familiar with what they are, what they can do, how they are transmitted, detected, and treated, and so on.

 

Chlamydia is a bacterial STD that is transmitted through sex. It can be detected by undergoing a Chlamydia test. If you receive a positive test result, consult a doctor to know what the best antibiotic treatment to receive.

 

Syphilis is another bacterial STD that can trigger various symptoms and complications if not detected right away. It is necessary to get a syphilis test at the earliest chance to receive the appropriate antibiotic treatment.

 

HIV is a viral STD that is known for its serious complications. It attacks the immune system and can lead to AIDS if not detected and managed early on. The virus can be impeded from replicating and causing severe destruction and damage through antiretroviral treatment.

 

Hepatitis C is another STD that is more often transmitted through exposure to contaminated blood via sharing of used needles and syringes, razors and toothbrushes, and other things. If not detected right away, it can cause serious damage to the liver. It is also treated with the use of antiretroviral treatment.
