An STD or STI is exactly what its acronym stands for: Sexually Transmitted Disease or Sexually Transmitted Infection – these venereal diseases are infections caused by organisms that can be transmitted from one person to the next through sexual activity and intimate contact. You can get STD's through having oral, anal or vaginal sex with an infected partner. An individual can become infected with more than one STD at a time.
Some people who have STIs have no symptoms at all,so they don’t know that they have the infection. But youshould watch for any unusual fluids from the vagina or penis, a feeling of burning when you pass water, sores, itching, pain or rash on or near the sex organs. You may have none, only one, or a number of symptoms.
You risk getting an STI:
If you have unprotected sex (sex without a condom).
If you have more than one partner.
When you have a new sex partner.
If your partner has sex with others.
If you or your partner use injection drugs.
If you or your partner share needles or syringes for injection.
If you took any of these risks, see a doctor and ask for an STI check-up, even if you don’t have any symptoms.
Many people are so embarrassed when infected with a STD, that they delay treatment, or seek online pharmacies such as ours, and self identify their STI and guess an effective treatment.
We DON'T recommend you do this as it is fraught with risk and danger, should your STD be incorrectly treated. Left for too long without treatment, a STD can have significant long term consequences such as sterility.Once your illness has been correctly identified, then by all means, use our online pharmacy to order for convenience and price!
There is no Stigma to contracting a STD! Zero. None. All normal people have sex and a STD can be caught just from normal sexual interaction between people. See a Doctor or Clinic today, if you suspect you may have one.
Having said that, Antibiotic pills will cure most bacterial STDs but they will not be effective with viral infections. Remember what ever medication is used, curing an STD will not provide immunity against future infection.
Herpes simplex viruses can cause “cold sores” in the mouth or genital ulcers in the sexual organs - the same viruses can cause both infections.
Oral sex can spread the infection from a cold sore on the mouth to the genital skin of a partner and vice versa. Symptoms include blisters which then become ulcers. These usually heal in 10 to 14 days. However, many people infected with the herpes virus do not have symptoms and are unaware they are infected. The first outbreak of genital herpes is usually the worst, following outbreaks are usually less severe. Outbreaks are usually at or near the site of the original sore. Some people never have a recurrence, but when people have severe, repeated outbreaks medication is available to help control their symptoms. Once a person has genital herpes, the virus stays in nerve cells in the body and may be passed on by direct skin contact during sex (oral, anal or genital). Transmission can sometimes occur even when the infected person does not appear to have an active outbreak of herpes sores
