Six signs that a woman has an STD, check if you have one!

The problem of female sexually transmitted diseases is getting more and more attention from female compatriots, and now the ratio of male to female sexually transmitted diseases has reached 1.4:1. Since the characteristics of male sexually transmitted diseases are more obvious, while the characteristics of female sexually transmitted diseases usually do not have any special performance, so the best time for diagnosis and treatment is often delayed and the condition is delayed.

 

The following are 6 signs of female sexual diseases for the reference of women.

Signs 1: Increased leucorrhea, yellow or green pus, often accompanied by pain when urinating, increased frequency of urination, and the inability to cheat urination.

Tip: Gonorrhea

 

It is worth reminding that some women can be asymptomatic or have mild symptoms after contracting gonorrhea, and treatment is often easily delayed. In contrast, men with gonorrhea often have obvious symptoms, and it is easier to pass gonorrhea from men to women than from women to men. If there is a sexual contact without condom with a man who has gonorrhea, the possibility of a woman being infected is 40-60%.

 

Therefore, women should learn to protect themselves and avoid sexual contact with men who have symptoms of gonorrhea. If risky sexual behavior has occurred, even if the woman has no symptoms, she should go to the hospital for examination to get early diagnosis and treatment.

 

 

Sign 2: Increased leucorrhea, which is tofu-like, white, lumpy, and significantly increased in volume. It is often accompanied by internal and external itching, which is often very intense.

Tip: Candidococcal (fungal) vaginitis

 

This disease can be transmitted to the other person through sexual intercourse and is therefore an STD in the broad sense. Unlike other STDs, Candida vaginitis is a very common inflammatory disease of the female vagina, with 75% of women suffering from it once in their lifetime and 40 – 50% having more than two episodes. In terms of age of onset, the best age of onset is around 20 years old when sexually active and the lowest incidence is over 50 years old.

 

Some women are infected by means other than unclean sex: such as not paying attention to vulvar cleanliness or using unclean toilet paper or sanitary napkins; extensive use of broad-spectrum antibiotics, which kill normal bacteria in the vagina and lead to dysbiosis, which favors the growth of disease-causing fungi; diabetic patients are prone to candida vaginitis due to high sugar content in the blood.

Signs 3: Odd itchy vulva, increased leucorrhea, which can be foamy, and often yellow liquid on the underwear.

Tip: Trichomonas vaginalis

 

This disease can also be transmitted to each other through sexual intercourse and is a STD in the broad sense. Trichomoniasis is usually more common in women, mainly due to the destruction of the natural acidic environment of the vagina. Men, however, are less likely to get it and most have no symptoms.

Sign 4: Ulcers on the genital surface. It mostly presents as a hard nodule about 1 cm in diameter on the inner side of the labia majora or labia minora with a mildly broken surface. Women often do not feel any discomfort and the ulcers will disappear in about a month.

Tip: Early (stage 1) syphilis

 

This ulcer is the medical term “hard chancre”, which is a special manifestation of early syphilis. There is a large amount of pathogens on the surface of the hard chancre and the probability of being infected after contact is very high. It is a good idea to have a good look at the website.

 

 

Signs 5: Many red spots appear on the body, which are darker in color and need to be looked at carefully to be noticed, and they do not itch.

Tip: Stage 2 Syphilis

 

Usually the hard chancre of syphilis will develop into stage II syphilis if it is not treated in time. The most typical is a dark red spot on the palms of the hands and feet, which can be surrounded by peeling skin. If the syphilis is not detected and treated in time, the syphilis will develop to the advanced stage, involving multiple organs of the body, making treatment difficult and prolonging the disease, and even endangering life. If the syphilis infection is not treated in time, it can spread to the fetus, so special attention is needed.

 

 

Signs 6: Small cauliflower-like or jagged creatures appear around the vaginal opening, which are painless to touch and usually do not feel anything.

Tip: Condyloma acuminatum

 

This growth has a non-red epidermis and is often grayish or skin colored. If left alone, the growths will grow larger and more numerous and can fill the vaginal opening and even block the vagina. This feature can be used to identify pseudowarts in women. Pseudo warts do not grow and increase and are not contagious. As long as you pay attention to cleanliness and reduce the local irritation of the leucorrhoea, the symptoms can be reduced and no treatment is necessary.
