HIV and Sexually Transmitted Disease in Women
      #276371 - 05/29/14 08:42 AM

Some of the most common warning signs with STD's in women would be the constant feeling of the flu, as many STD's lower one's immune system, making them much more susceptible to illness. Another would be the appearance of lesions, rashes, or even pimply marks on or around the vagina/mouth. Many of these lesions are crusty, and may smell bad and even pus quite often.

These marks can be itchy as well as painful and may be red with a white surrounding circle. Depending on which STD has been contracted, the appearance of these marks may differ. Another sign for STD's in women would be painful urination. Though painful urination may also occur with an UTI and yeast infection as well. Itching of the genitals as well as burning are also two signs of an STD, as well as signs of UTI and yeast infection. It may be hard to differentiate between an STD and a common UTI. This is why most women should look for other signs as well as those which are already present.

Women with an STD may also experience a discolored discharge as well as a foul odor coming from the vagina, along with other symptoms as well. The discharge can be anything from yellow to green in color and is most often accompanied by a foul odor. Pelvic and uterus pains are also sometimes related to STD's as well. An imbalanced menstruation schedule may also result from STD's.
There are many different warning signs when it comes to STD's in women, and all should be taken seriously.

STD's are very dangerous things to catch. If you or someone you know thinks that they may be suffering from an STD it is essential that the person be tested as soon as possible. STD's that go untreated can become very troublesome and even life threatening. This is why it is important to go and get tested at any suspicion of an STD infection. Doing so just may save your life, and other's lives as well. STD's are highly contagious, and anyone who comes into sexual contact with someone who suffers from an STD is at great risk at becoming infected themselves. Safe sex should always be practiced.

This can be everything from the use of condoms for either male or female to choosing your partners wisely. Be cautious as to who you engage in sexual activity with, and if possible, save all sexual activity for serious relationships only. Limiting the number of partners you have will also help reduce the risk of contracting an STD. Condoms should also be worn during every sexual encounter that does not take place for reproduction.
Be cautious and be safe, as many STD's are with you for life.STD's in women are preventable, and it begins with you to ensure that you live your life free of such diseases.
