Sexually Transmitted Diseases
Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) are a set of infections that are spread by having sex, especially vaginal intercourse, anal sex and oral sex. It is also referred as Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) and Venereal Diseases (VD). More than 30 different bacteria, viruses and parasites can cause STDs. Bacterial STDs include chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis among others. Common viral STDs are genital herpes, HIV/AIDS, and genital warts. Trichomoniasis is the most common parasitic STD.
STD symptoms are not always obvious. In fact, most STDs initially do not cause any symptoms. This increases the risk of passing the disease onto others. Some of the symptoms that develop late include:
- Vaginal discharge
- Penile discharge
- Ulcers on or around the genitals
- Pelvic pain
It is important to follow safe sex practices to prevent STDs. Using a condom, having a small number of sexual partners, being in a relationship where the person has sex only with his partner decreases the risk of contracting an STD. Most of the STDs are treatable or curable.
Homoeopathy not only relieves most STD conditions, but also cures them without any persistent usage of drugs or any side effects. Some of the common homeopathic remedies for STDs include:
- Allium Sativa
- Hepar Sulph
- Thuja Occidentalis
It is important to note that no homeopathic medicine should be taken without the prescription from a certified homeopathic practitioner.
