Common Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs)

Chlamydia

Chlamydia is the most common bacterial sexually transmitted infection in the U.S. It is frequently diagnosed in 15-24 year olds.  

Symptoms: Males: Infected men commonly have no symptoms. If symptoms are present, there is often watery or milky discharge from the penis and a burning sensation upon urination. Females: Infected women commonly show no symptoms. If symptoms are present, there is most often vaginal discharge and/or bleeding, low abdominal pain and painful urination. Rectal: Pain, itching and discharge with blood or pus.

Treatment: Curable with antibiotic therapy-if not treated can cause serious health problems.

Gonorrhea

Gonorrhea is most common in people ages 15 to 24. Many of those infected with gonorrhea also have chlamydia. It is caused by a bacterium known as Neisseria Gonorrhoeae.

Symptoms: Males: Most infected men have symptoms which can include a milky discharge from the penis and burning sensation upon urination. Females: Most women have no symptoms. If symptoms are present, there is vaginal discharge and/or bleeding, low abdominal pain and/or painful urination. Rectal: Itching, pain and discharge with blood or pus. Oral: Sore throat, swollen glands.

Treatment: Curable with antibiotic therapy- if not treated can cause serious health problems.

HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus)

HIV is a viral disease that can be transmitted: sexually; from an infected mother to her infant before or at the time of birth; or through direct exposure to blood, blood products or breast milk. HIV causes progressive damage to the immune system.

Symptoms: Usually none for several years after HIV infection, although some patients develop flu-like symptoms and a rash shortly after being infected.

Treatment: No known cure. Antiretroviral therapy can delay development of the disease and decrease the chance of transmission.

Syphilis

Syphilis is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by bacteria. Syphilis is transmitted from person to person by direct contact with a syphilis sore.

Symptoms: A single or multiple painless sores mark the primary stage of symptoms. Skin rashes and/or sores in the mouth, vagina, or anus mark the secondary stage of symptoms.

Treatment: Syphilis is simple to cure with appropriate antibiotics from a physician. Treatment will kill the syphilis bacteria and prevent further damage, but it will not repair damage already done.

Trichomoniasis

Trichomoniasis is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by a parasite. The parasite is passed from an infected person to an uninfected person during sex.

Symptoms: Males: May feel itching or irritation inside the penis, burning after urination or ejaculation, or have discharge from the penis. Females: May notice burning, redness or soreness of the genitals, discomfort with urination, or a thin discharge with an unusual smell that may be clear, white, yellowish or greenish.

Treatment: A single dose of prescription antibiotic medication. Pills can be taken by mouth.
