68 TYPES OF STIs Syphilis primary, secondary, latent, and late stages Congenital SyphilisChancroidCandidiasisHepatitisPubic LiceScabies
69 CHLAMYDIAMost common bacterial STD in the U.S. Researchers estimate that this STD infects about 4 million people a year. HALF OF THOSE ARE WOMEN AGE 15 TO 19.
70 CHLAMYDIA in FEMALESYou can get chlamydia in the cervix (opening to the womb) or rectum. The majority of chlamydial infections in women do not cause any symptoms. But if you do have symptoms, you might notice:An unusual discharge from your vagina.Burning when you urinate.If the infection spreads, you may experience lower abdominal pain, nausea, or fever. If left untreated, it can spread into the uterus or fallopian tubes and cause pelvic inflammatory disease, and chlamydia can be passed to your baby in child birth. Chlamydia can be treated with antibiotics.
71 CHLAMYDIA in MALESYou can get chlamydia in the urethra (inside the penis). As in women, most men do not experience symptoms, but if you do, you might notice:A discharge from the penis.Burning sensation with urination.Burning or itching around the opening of the penis.If left untreated, it may result in an infection in the tube that carries sperm from the testes. This infection can cause pain and fever and in rare cases, may result in sterility. It can be treated and cured with antibiotics.
72 PELVIC INFLAMMATORY DISEASE (PID) A serious infection of a woman’s reproductive organs that can result in infertility. PID can result from an untreated case of chlamydia. PID can lead to infertility and a potential fatal tubal (ectopic) pregnancy. Untreated chlamydia can lead to nongonococcal urethritis. This is an inflammation of the lining of the urethra.
73 Trichomoniasis- A sexually transmitted protozoan infection of the urinary tract or vagina. Symptoms – In males, clear discharge from the penis or painful urination. In females, itching or burning in the vagina , and a greenish-yellow discharge, and painful urination
74 GONORRHEAA bacterial STD that infects the urinary tract of males and females, and the reproductive organs of females.
75 Symptoms of GonorrheaIn males - thick, puss-like discharge from the penis.Painful and burning urination.In females – similar symptoms to males, but many times are asymptomatic. If untreated, can lead to PID.Can be transmitted to infant during childbirth.
76 GENITAL WARTS Symptoms: The most common viral STD in the U.S., aka human papilloma virus (HPV).Symptoms:A month or so after infection, warts may appear around the area of the genitals. Warts can be removed, but the virus remains for life!This is also linked to cervical cancer in women.
77 GENITAL HERPESIncurable, viral STD which produces painful blisters around the genital area.Symptoms:General run-down, flu-like feeling, followed by periodic outbreak of blisters in the genital area.Doctors can prescribe medicine for treatment, but there is no cure.Infected person should keep the area clean and dry during an outbreak of blisters to keep from spreading the disease.
78 Serious bacterial STD that progresses through several stages. SYPHILISSerious bacterial STD that progressesthrough several stages.Primary Stage – 1 to 12 weeks of infection, a painless sore called a chancre appears at the site of infection. In a few weeks, the sore disappears.Secondary Stage – occurs 2 to 8 weeks after the primary stage. Features are characterized with sores in the mouth and flu-like symptoms, swollen lymph glands, non-itchy rash mainly on the hands and feet.Latent Stage – could be years later. By now, the bacteria has attacked internal body organs, and damage is permanent, which can lead to death.
79 SYPHILIS – Stages Continued Late (or tertiary) Stage – left untreated in an adult, syphilis has damaged the brain, heart, and many other vital organs.Syphilis CAN be cured with antibiotics IF TREATED IN THE EARLY STAGES.
80 Bacterial STD with symptoms similar to primary syphilis. CHANCROIDBacterial STD with symptomssimilar to primary syphilis.Symptoms:Painful sores around the genitals, deeper than the chancres associated with syphilis.These sores are VERY infectious, and provide openings thru which other pathogens can enter the body.Can be treated with antibiotics.
81 Vaginal infection caused by CANDIDIASISVaginal infection caused bythe fungus candida.It is not caused by sexual contact, but can be passed on to a partner during sexual intercourse.Symptoms in women are white, cheesy discharge and itching.There are no symptoms in men.Also known as “vaginal yeast infection”. Bacteria that normally grows in the vagina prevent the fungi from growing. Sometimes, when antibiotics are taken, the fungi are able to multiply resulting in candidiasis.
82 Hepatitis B and C are STDs that attack the liver (viral disease). Can also be spread by blood-to-blood contact from IV drug use or body piercing and tatooing.Symptoms could take months to develop.Symptoms are fatigue, abdominal pain, nausea, and jaundice (yellowing of skin).With progression of the disease, the chance of developing cirrhosis is possible.There is a required vaccine for Hepatitis B.
83 PUBIC LICE & SCABIES Pubic Lice: Tiny insects that infest pubic hair. Infestation of mites.Both conditions cause itching and at times a rash.Can also be spread from bedding and clothing.Can be treated with shampoos or ointments.
85 HIV AND AIDS HIV – Human Immunodeficiency Virus HIV attacks T cells which produce antibodies.AIDS – Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome; an often fatal disease of the immune systemSymptoms include fever, swollen lymph glands, and fatigue. Diagnosis can only be made through testing for the disease.
86 HOW DOES IT WORK?The HIV virus infects the body and begins to kill white blood cells or T cells in the newly infected person.A healthy person is going to have around 1,000 T cells. When the total T cell count gets down to around 200, they are then classified no longer as HIV infected, but with AIDS.
87 OPPORTUNISTIC DISEASES Diseases that attack a person with a weakened immune system.TuberculosisPneumoniaCervical cancerKaposi sarcomaSevere weight loss or fungal infections. As diseases progress, the virus may attack the brain and nervous system.Death is usually caused by an opportunistic disease.
88 TRANSMISSION OF HIV The four main methods of HIV transmission: Sexual intercourse which would include semen or vaginal secretions.Shared needles or syringes from an infected personContact with blood or blood parts with an infected person.Infected mother to child during birth or breast feeding.
