Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD) or Infection (STI)

Sexually transmitted disease or infections – STD, are a group of infections that have a high probability of being transmitted between humans by means of sexual activity including vaginal intercourse, anal and oral sex. They can also be easily contacted from the use of contaminated intravenous needles by drug addicts.

Until the early 90’s STD was referred to as Venereal Disease or simply VD and in the main consisted of Gonorrhoea and Syphilis. In the intervening years STD have become much more prevalent and involve a much wider spectrum of bacterial, viral and yeast infections.

What are the main STD’s that you need to be aware of?

Sexually transmitted diseases may be categorized according to causative organism thus:

Bacterial STD

• Chlamydia
• Gonorrhoea
• Treponema pallidum (Syphilis)
• Mycoplasma homis
• Mycoplasma  genitalium
• Ureaplasma urealyticium.
• Haemohhilus.

Viral STD.

• Herpes Simplex Virus 1
• Herpes Simplex Virus 2
• HIV giving rise to AIDS

Parasitic STD.

• Trichomonas Vaginitis.
• Pediculosis pubis or Pubic Lice. Can be contracted other than through sexual activity.

What are the symptoms of STD?

The symptoms of any given STD will depend on the organism causing it. That said, very many STD are symptom free or do not give rise to any symptoms until they have caused damage that may by then be irreparable. It is therefore imperative that if you think you have been exposed to contracting a STD you have screening urine or swap test done.  This should screen for at least the 10 commonest STD. There is no point in screening for just a few of them. That is a waste of time. This can now be carried out from the comfort and privacy of your own home and testing kits are available for purchase from this website. They are easy to use and understand and you will have results back within a week.

Prevention of STD.

The best way to ensure that you do not contract a STD is to ensure that you NEVER indulge in unprotected sexual activity with anybody other than with someone with whom you have had a long and trusting relationship.

If you are worried that you may have contracted a STD then please do not wait for symptoms that might never appear. We are here to help you.

I am a 65 year-old lady who was recently diagnosed with genital herpes. My symptoms have been severe in terms of pain, itching and discomfort and have lasted near 6 weeks though I am taking 500 mg of Valtrex per day. My question is about the dosage. I have a friend who was prescribed 1000 mg of Valtrex and his symptoms were not as severe as mine and cleared up more quickly. What is the usual and/or typical prescribed dosage of Valtrex when it is the initial outbreak and the treatment is intended to clear symptoms and reduce recurring episodes? Thank you.

The dose of Valtrex is 1000 mg twice a day for ten days. But Valtrex will not cure genital warts but rather just control them. Here is something I wrote on GW a while back. See if you can visualize them just falling away

Genital Warts My Secret Cure.

What are Genital Warts?

Like all warts that appear on the human body from time to time, genital warts are a viral skin invasion caused by a sub-specious of the human papillomavirus (HPV) Genital warts are invariable described as a “sexually transmitted disease.” However, it has been my certain experience as a practicing medical doctor that this is not invariable the case. Genital warts can occur in non-sexually active monogamous adults.

How are Genital warts diagnosed? Genital warts are diagnosed very simply by their location and appearance. First of all their appearance, they come in two forms:

Typically genital warts look like small, usually pale, clusters of skin tags of about the size of a match head or smaller. They are itchy and
nasty.You want rid of them.
Or they can take the form of tiny clumps like cauliflower heads.
And their location? In the male and female genital warts may be located around the anal verge. They are typically located on the verge of the foreskin in the circumcised and uncircumcised mate and and around the vaginal opening in the female.

Genital warts are treated like warts anywhere else on the body except that in their case particular attention has to be given to the exceptionally sensitive nature of their location. These treatments might include:

Topical applications containing concentrated formula of acetylsalicylic acid (Podophyllin) This should only be used under a doctor’s
Freezing under local anesthetic. This is also called cryo-surgery
Electrocautery or burning. Again this requires some anesthesia.
Surgical excision and laser treatments. These tend to be expensive.So what’s my secret treatment for genital warts?”
My secret treatment for genital warts is cheap and cheerful, painless, effective and spears you all that embarrassment and costs and it is this:
Go out and purchase a tube of Podophyllin — the stronger the better. Do not open the tube and of course do not apply any to your warts. Instead carry the tube around on your person — in your purse, handbag, pocket, under your bra — wherever. From time to time during the day, whenever you get a chance, while watching TV, reading, traveling, whatever, take the tube into the palm of your hand, close your eyes, concentrate and visualize and that,s the most important bit of all, visualize your genital warts just shriveling up and falling away from your body leaving nice smooth healthy skin behind. Do this about three time a day and your warts will be none in a week.

We know that all warts respond to charm, folk cures, pishoges, visualization and suggestion. Nowhere is this better illustrated than when it comes to those horrible genital warts. Go try it.

I have a tiny lump on the right side of my neck a little under my chin. My throat  was sore for a couple days, butthe pain has subsided. Should I be concerned about anything? I just recently had sex for my first time. I have not done it since and it hasn't been almost 3 weeks.

Dear Dr.

I hope this message finds you well.i am writing out of concern about hsv2 and have some questions.  

I met a girl and we had some deep kissing. No sexual contact between genitals, no peals sex. She takes valdyovir regularly. She has not had a break out in over a year.  

Do I need to be concerned of contracting hsv2 through oral exchange such as deep kissing? Thank you!

Herpes Virus is a terrible virus, if not for my Husband and the help of the great Dr. Aluya my life would have been a mess! I was diagnose with Herpes virus in 2014, my husband encouraged me, and told me not to lose hope, I manage to give birth to a baby Boy who was free from this virus, and my Husband was always there for me! One day he came to me and told me that he have found a man who can cure me. Base on scientist, they said there is no cure for Herpes virus; he told me that he has seen many testimonies about him on the internet. We decided to contact him, we filled his Herbal home form, and he asked us to buy some local root and herbs items which we did!  and he prepared for me a herbal medicine and 14 days later he asked me to go for medical test, faithfully hopefully i went for the medical test, and Behold, I was cured, from this virus and its was not found in my Body system again... My Dear Husband and my Father Dr. Aluya God will surely bless the both of you, till the end of time, in Jesus name.. If you have any problem kindly contact Dr Aluya via his email (dr.***@****) or call him on +2349073364485
