We all have heard something about the so-called sexually transmitted diseases. But often we do not know any of the symptoms, or the consequences of such infections. So what are the sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)? And are they treatable?
Every year, STDs are becoming more and more widespread. This trend is associated with an early initiation of sexual activity and frequent change of partners. An equally important factor contributing to the spread of genital infections is the emergence of new contraceptives. Along with the condoms, which significantly reduce the risk of STDs, hormonal pills and intrauterine devices (IUD) are becoming more and more popular.
Every suspicious sexual intercourse should be the occasion to see a specialist. Itching or burning sensations, discharges, pain during urination, lower abdominal pain, bloody discharge are the main symptoms of diseases like: chlamydiosis, ureaplasmosis, mycoplasmosis, gardnerellosis, as well as viral infections and severe sexually transmitted diseases (syphilis and gonorrhea). However, there are cases where STDs proceed asymptomatically. Most infectious diseases are curable, but it is important not to delay the treatment. Otherwise, you risk getting very serious complications. These include inflammatory diseases of pelvic organs with various complications. In the reproductive age is it is fraught with infertility, various hormonal disorders and functional disorders of various organs and systems.
How to prevent STDs?
The most effective method is the prevention of genital infections. Responsible attitude towards your personal health and the health of your sexual partners reduces the risk of STDs to a minimum.
And to prevent the complications of STDs it is very important to identify these diseases at an early stage. Usually, the infectious process is inclined to be chronic, and the symptoms are not evident. But if it is left without qualified treatment, long-term consequences are very serious.
The visit to a gynaecologist is necessary if you notice the symptoms of STD infection. In this case you can confidentially contact our clinic, and after preliminary examination, the doctor will assign you an additional treatment and testing, including hi-tech PCR diagnostics. Short after the clinical lab tests our specialist will diagnose you and begin treatment.
The treatment of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
The basic rule for STD treatment is timely and adequate health care.
It is very important to get rid of STDs before the alleged pregnancy, because the infection can cause pregnancy problems, fetal developmental disorders and premature delivery. There is also a possibility of fetus infection during the labor. To avoid the mentioned complications pregnant women and those planning pregnancy should be tested for the presence of infectious diseases.
In the treatment of an infectious disease the factors contributing to the development and recurrence of bacterial vaginosis should be primarily addressed. The use of eubiotics, biogenic stimulators, vitamins, and other drugs for the normalization of vaginal and intestinal microbiota is quite rational and effective.
The self-medication is absolutely unacceptable in case of sexually transmitted diseases! Only the professional treatment of STDs, conducted by a specialist and based on a detailed diagnosis can eliminate or minimize the negative effects of sexually transmitted infections. Previous STDs do not cause immunity; therefore you should undergo diagnostics and treatment after each suspicious sexual intercourse. One of the main conditions for success is the simultaneous treatment of sexually transmitted diseases in both partners, otherwise there will be a reinfection.
