Emerging Threat of STDs (sexual transmitted disease)

A sexually transmitted disease, short STDs, can occur after vaginal, oral or anal sex. It is estimated that every second sexually active person acquires one sexually transmitted infection by the age of 25. The trouble is that many of them do not know about it as they do not get any symptoms and if so, do not relate it to their sexual activity.

Some of the most widely known infections are genital herpes, HPV, chlamydia or HIV. The problem is, however, that all of them can lead to more severe diseases which can be life-threatening or even lethal.

The most well-known and also most dreaded infection is HIV. The Human Immunodeficiency Virus can lead to AIDS ? the Acquired immunodeficiency Syndrome. The virus affects the immune system heavily by destroying the t-helper cells.

These cells produce the beta cells, which again produce antibodies in response to all kinds of infections. If the helper cells are destroyed, the whole immune system fails in case of other minor infections. The body, as a result, is getting weaker and weaker, and an infected person can die due to usually minor infections.

Another STDs is HPV, i.e. Human Papillomavirus, which may lead to cervical cancer. To hit a positive note, all of these infections can to a certain extent either be cured successfully or at least be treated effectively if diagnosed early. Scientific research has been very ambitious.

In order to find treatments and medications against STDs, many research institutes spend their money on molecular biology equipment and staff. For HIV or cancer, the institutes can order kits from the antibodies specialist to conduct broad and representative studies of the reactivity of certain antigens with antibodies.

In that way, the researchers can discover and develop new substances working against the dangerous germs. The vaccination against HPV which has been introduced is one first glimpse of hope.

Why Chlamydia is such a dangerous disease?

One of the most common STDs which are spreading these days is Chlamydia. It has been seen that around 2.8 million people develop this disease annually. Women are more at risk to suffer permanent damage from Chlamydia as it affects their reproductive organs in an irreversible manner.


STDs are caused if a person has multiple sexual partners and has unprotected sex. It is astonishing that some people take such risks, even when they know the consequences.

The younger generation-between the ages of 16 to 20 are seen to develop STD (sexually transmitted disease) more these days. Chlamydia can be developed both in men and women.

The main symptoms of Chlamydia are pain and burning sensation while one urinates, pain in the anus, rectum area or/and testicles, painful intercourse, unknown and itchy vaginal discharge in women, etc.

In some cases the symptoms are similar to the symptoms seen in Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID). If you are facing such problems, then you should contact a doctor immediately as delaying the matter doesn’t just cause more pain and irritation but can also lead to infertility.

Even if your partner is the one who is complaining about similar symptoms, then too you to should get a Chlamydia test done as it is a sexually transmitted disease, there are chances that you might have gotten it from your partner.

Some people might be extremely embarrassed to go see a doctor at first. To understand and realize that they actually have Chlamydia, Chlamydia testing kits can be ordered online these days. The tests can be done at home.

If you are experiencing Chlamydia symptoms, then you can consider getting a kit. You can find kits on the website. Once you know for sure, you will be compelled to get help. Also if you don’t have it, you can know sitting at your home itself, which can be a relief.
