STDs are diseases passed from one individual to the other through oral, anal, or vaginal sex. One of the main problems of these conditions is that they cause fewer or no symptoms at the first stages. Since these conditions worsen with time, going for an STD test is critical if you are having sex regularly. Upper West Side STD testing is the right option for you if you are worrying that you could have these conditions. The following are the common STDs that the person is likely to have.
A bacterial infection causes this condition. It mostly starts with sores known as chancres around the groin which can infect the individual’s lips or tongue. Later the person can have reddish-brown rashes on the body, aching, fever, soreness, enlarged lymph nodes, and fatigue. If this condition is not treated, it can damage the tissue and later cause numbness, paralysis, dementia, and blindness.
Since it is asymptomatic, it is one of the bacterial conditions that a person can take a long before being detected in the initial stages. Within one and three weeks, the patient can suffer painful urination, smelly penile or vaginal discharge, and lower abdominal pain. The person can also suffer pain during intercourse, bleeding between the menstrual periods, and testicular pain. In most instances, these symptoms are mild. If you leave this condition untreated, you will likely suffer from pelvic inflammatory disease.
This is a group name for various inflammatory conditions which affect the individual’s liver. The common types of Hepatitis contracted through sexual contact are hepatitis B and C. They are also transmitted through contact with an infected person’s blood. You could suffer from fatigue, pale stool, dark urine, loss of appetite, and flu-like symptoms. If this condition is left untreated, it can cause liver failure or cirrhosis.
In most instances, this disease is asymptomatic. This condition can affect the unborn children if the mothers are infected. You will likely suffer from painful urination, bleeding between periods, and pelvic pain. Besides, you can suffer from painful pus-like discharge leading to swelling in the testicles. It can also affect the individual’s throat, joints, and eyes. Left untreated, it can lead to infertility in both partners or cause the child to suffer blindness and other health conditions.
It is a condition that leads to warts that increase the risk of suffering cancer. The infection which can lead to cancer can affect the individual’s genitals (penis, cervix, and vulva), throat, and anus. In addition to sex, HPV can be contracted through skin contact.

If it remains untreated, you could have various forms of cancers or lesions in the throat or the upper respiratory system.
