Most Common Types of Sexually Transmitted Disease

  Chlamydia is a bacterial that transmitted from a person with an infection can pass by having anal, oral, or vaginal sex without a condom, men can get Chlamydia in the urethra, rectum, or throat. People refer to chlamydia as a silent infection because people are usually unaware that they have it the majority of chlamydia infections in men don't cause any symptoms; however, some men will develop symptoms many weeks once infection.

  Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD). Older studies from before the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine was available estimated that three-quarters of the sexually active population had Human Papillomavirus (HPV) at some point during their lives, and one-quarter of women were infected at any given time.

  Gonorrhea is a bacterial infection that may not always show signs and symptoms and may remain undiagnosed. Similar to Chlamydia, Gonorrhea can cause urethritis in men, which leads to burning or pain on urination and discharge from the urethra. Gonorrhea is caused by Neisseria gonorrhoeae bacteria, and when symptoms do occur, they develop about 4 to 8 days after contracting the infection.

  Syphilis could be a extremely contagious disease spread primarily by sexual intercourse, including oral and anal intercourse. Occasionally, the disease will be passed to another person through prolonged kissing or close bodily contact. Although this disease is spread from sores, the vast majority of those sores go unrecognized and the infected person is usually unaware of the disease and unknowingly passes it on to his or her sexual partner.
