In Bengaluru, health experts are raising awareness about the risks of unprotected sex, emphasizing that the consequences extend beyond pregnancy to include sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Dr. Basavaraj S Kumbar, a consultant in Internal Medicine at Aster Whitefield Hospital, highlights the critical need for understanding and early detection of STDs to protect one's health.

STDs range from common infections such as chlamydia and gonorrhea to more severe diseases like HIV and herpes. Dr. Kumbar stresses the importance of regular testing, as many STDs may not show symptoms immediately, potentially leading to serious health issues if left untreated.

Symptoms, when present, can vary widely, from itching and pain to unusual discharges and sores, underscoring the diversity of these infections.The article delves into the specifics of various STDs, including bacterial vaginosis, hepatitis, herpes, and HPV, among others, each presenting unique symptoms and challenges.

For instance, hepatitis B can remain asymptomatic, making vaccination crucial, while herpes manifests as sores, and HPV, a common infection, may lead to warts or even cancer.Transmission methods of STDs are also discussed, with a focus on the importance of using protection during oral, anal, and vaginal sex to mitigate risks.

The piece emphasizes that certain STDs can also spread through skin-to-skin contact, making consistent condom use and regular screenings vital components of sexual health.Differences in symptom visibility between men and women are highlighted, with some STDs presenting more noticeable symptoms in men, such as sores or unusual discharge.

Women, on the other hand, may experience pelvic pain or changes in vaginal discharge, with genital ulcers being less visible. On the topic of treatment and prevention, the article notes that while antibiotics can treat bacterial STDs, viral infections require ongoing management. Vaccinations offer additional protection against diseases like hepatitis A and B, and HPV. Adopting safe sex practices, including abstinence, limited sexual partners, mutual monogamy, and consistent condom use, is essential for reducing STD risks.

The piece concludes by underscoring the importance of routine gynecological check-ups for the early detection of STDs, aiming to prevent the severe consequences of untreated infections, such as infertility, organ damage, and increased risk of cancer. The call to action is clear: prioritizing sexual health through education, regular testing, and prevention methods is crucial for a healthier future.
