People affected with sexuallly transmitted diseases are mostly treated using the commonly available medicines and drugs, as prescribed by medical science.

3. Genital Herpes is one of the sexuallly transmitted diseases which are highly contagious in nature. This disease is virally caused and the causative virus is Herpes Simplex virus. It affects the mucous membranes of various organs like the skin of the rectal region or the genitals and sometimes even both. This disease though treated with antibiotics, it can only be stopped from growing further. The affected person needs to undergo a long therapy.

4. AIDS (Acquired Immunity Deficiency Syndrome) is one of the most dreaded sexually transmitted diseases in the world. Not only this disease is very infectious sexually but is almost without any perfect treatment. This disease is caused by a very popular virus known as HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus). The most critical aspect of this disease is that in most cases people do not die directly due to AIDS. In fact the HIV virus only affects the immune system of the affected individual’s body. This is actually enough for some other micro organism to attack and invade the body. Various cases exist in this world where people have died even due to common cold, once they have been affected with HIV virus leading to AIDS. Though, rumors related to AIDS exist that they are transmitted easily, even by touch, facts of medical science states otherwise.


5. Syphilis is caused by Treponema pallidum which looks just like a cork screw germ. The difference between this and other common sexually transmitted diseases in the world is that this disease can even spread itself in normal sexual interaction even if it is not an intercourse. Precaution taken in all these cases can actually save you from getting infected.
