10 Most Deadly and Embarrassing STDs and STIs

10 Most Deadly and Embarrassing STDs and STIs

Having STDs and STIs is embarrassing. While most infections are not lethal, it is fairly inconvenient to have one. To deal with the scratching blisters and being totally undesirable as a sex partner, does not feel good at all. STDs/STIs may sound harmless at first but if you resort to “waiting it out”, it can lead to infertility, pain and even death. To give you an idea of how serious STDs and STIs are, here are top 10 most dangerous infections that you don’t want in your private parts:

  1. Bacterial Vaginosis or yeast infections. While not classified as a disease, this STI can be really embarrassing especially for women. The infection can result in burning sensations while peeing, itching, vaginal discharge and unpleasant odors. Fortunately, there are medications available to cure you of these infections at your local drug store.
  2. Trichomoniasis or “trich” is not classified as a disease or as an infection but as a parasite. It affects 7.4 million people a year in both men and women. For men, symptoms are almost non-existent making it hard to judge if a man has it but there are others who experience itching, discharges and odors. Symptoms of trich are also similar for women but are more severe. Treatments for this parasite require prescription drugs from your OBGYNE.
  3. Genital Warts or HPV (Human Papillomavirus) is the top 3 most common deadly STD, affecting 7 million people annually. It affects males and females which exhibit almost no symptoms at all but when they do appear, colonies of tiny cauliflower-shaped bumps around your genitals, anus and mouth can appear leading to cervical cancer, anal cancer and throat cancer. HPV can take years before they manifest but if detected early, it can be prevented from spreading..
  4. Pubic Lice. One of the most embarrassing yet less deadly conditions you could have in your entire sex life. Affecting more than 33 million people a year, pubic lice are almost invisible to the naked eye but its eggs are visible. It can be treated with simple lice-removing shampoos available in the market but admitting to having them is embarassing enough to be avoided.
  5. Chlamydia. This disease is characterized with “silent but deadly” symptoms which heavily affects women. Infected people almost never display any symptoms which makes it harder to detect. If there are symptoms, itching, and discharge and burning sensations during urination in males and females. If left untreated, it can lead to infertility, ectopic pregnancies and pelvic inflammations in women. Good thing it can be treated with prescription antibiotics.
  6. Gonorrhea. With similar symptoms as Chlamydia and various infections, Gonorrhea is one of the most infectious sexually-transmitted ailments. Like number five, Gonorrhea also has almost no symptoms and if they do, it affects both males and females equally. If untreated, it can cause ectopic pregnancies, pelvic inflammations and infertility in females, and epididymitis, infections on testicular ducts and sterility amongst males. Fortunately, like Chlamydia, it can also be treated with antibiotics.
  7. Herpes. Characterized by sores, lesions and irritations around the mouth and genitalia which are often mistaken as cold sores. They are itchy, inconvenient and very embarrassing. The worst is, if you get herpes, there’s no turning back. An infected person can spread the virus even without the sores and it is proven incurable. Though you can alleviate the itchiness with ointments and antiviral prescription medicine, there is no way out to rid of this disease.
  8. Hepatitis. Among the three strains of hepatitis virus (A,B and C), only B and C are considered as sexually transmitted. Because of routine vaccinations, the number of infected people in the US had dramatically decreased. Despite this, there are still a huge number of the population that is infected. If left untreated, it can result in liver problems which can be fatal.
  9. HIV/ AIDS. Though not as common as the others above the list, HIV/ AIDS is certainly something you would not want. HIV/ AIDS is a virus that targets a person’s immune system, making it more susceptible to other diseases. HIV/ AIDS virus usually affects an individual who has an existing STD. Through body fluids, it can enter open lesions on the genital area. There is no known cure for AIDS.
  10. Syphilis. With a low infection rate, with only 14,000 new infections per year, Syphilis is probably the worst of all STDs/STIs today. The virus imitates all the other sexually-transmitted symptoms making it hard for early diagnosis, then it completely disappears. It stays dormant for 10 to 20 years where it infects your insides from your digestive system all the way to your brain.

This is where the essentials of protection and regular checkups come in handy. Not only will you be preventing infections but you will also enjoy a great sex life. GetSexGyan.com will help you enhance your sexual experience with our tips and tricks on the art of seduction.
