Condyloma and Chlamydia are some of the most famous sexually transmitted diseases.

Condyloma, or genital warts, is the most commonly diagnosed viral sexually transmitted disease in the world. The symptoms are warty growths around the anus and genitals. In women, the warts may develop inside the vagina and on the cervix. These growths can be painful. If they enlarge, they may destroy healthy tissue. In women, condyloma is suspected as a cause of cancer of the cervix. Early treatment of genital warts can prevent their spread. The warts nay be removed surgically or with chemical ointments. Seek help immediately and you will avoid the horrible result of such an awful disease.
While condyloma is the most commonly diagnosed sexual disease, Chlamydia is the most commonly occurring one. It strikes millions of people around the world every year. In men Chlamydia causes infections of the urethra, epididymis and prostate. In women it causes inflammation of the cervix and the Fallopian tubes. Most women experience no symptoms from chlamydial infections, but if left untreated, these infections may spread throughout the pelvic area, causing various problems. Untreated Chlamydia also causes infections in pregnant women and in infants before and after their birth. It is associated with higher rates of infant deaths and with eye, ear and respiratory infections in newborns.
The symptoms of Chlamydia include pain in the lower abdomen, vaginal discharge and difficulty in urinating. A pelvic examination may show that a woman’s cervix is swollen and inflamed and is discharging pus. Pain during this examination suggests inflammation of the Fallopian tubes. Chlamydia is found most often among young, sexually active men and women. The more sexual contacts you have, the greater is the likelihood of contracting the disease. Just be careful with your partners and lifestyle and everything will be fine.
Because of the damage untreated Chlamydia can cause, it is very important for people with symptoms of the disease to seek diagnosis and treatment promptly. Doctors usually prescribe a 7-10 day course of specific antibiotics and drugs to the patients and their sexual partners. If the sexual partner is not treated, the infection is likely to be passed back. Fortunately, Chlamydia responds well to antibiotic treatment.
Now you know that you have to be very careful when choosing a sexual partner. You can also protect yourself against contracting condyloma and Chlamydia by using different methods of contraception such as condoms and diaphragms with spermicides.
