What Is Syphilis

  • ViewsIcon 6439

The common symptoms of gonorrhea are vaginal discharge and burning with urination, but there may be no symptoms. It commonly leads to PID (pelvic inflammatory disease). Gonorrhea can be treated and cured with antibiotics.



Syphilis produces its symptoms in stages. In the early stage there's usually a painless sore in or near the vagina (or mouth, anus or hands) and swollen lymph nodes in the area of the sore. The infection could be dormant for years until stage 2when there's a skin rash that lasts for months, often on the palms of the hands and soles of the feet. Stage 3 affects the heart, the central nervous system and other internal organs. It can be cured with antibiotics, usually penicillin.


Other STDs

Some other STDs you may hear about are trichomoniasis, bacterial vaginosis, cytomegalovirus, scabies and pubic lice.

No, not at all, as long as the doctor is kind and gentle.
Yes, definitely. I’d be less embarrassed with a woman.
Yes, I think a woman would be more understanding.
No, as long as the doctor is recommended by people I know.
