Most Common STDs for Men
Sexually transmitted infections (STIs), also known as sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), are infections that are passed from person to person through sexual contact. Here is a list of STDs in men:
Chlamydia is a very common bacterial STD that spreads during anal, oral, or vaginal sex with a person who is infected with chlamydia. Generally, without symptoms,but symptoms may include pain while urinating, penile discharge and swollen testicles
Gonorrhea is a bacterial infection that may affect the anus, throat, or urethra. It’s transmitted through anal, oral, or vaginal sex with a man or woman who has been infected. Most men with gonorrhea don’t show any symptoms. However, symptoms may include pain while urinating, a green, white, or yellow discharge from the penis.
Hepatitis B is caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV). Other common STDs produce symptoms focused around the genitals; but hepatitis B gives a dangerous inflammation of the liver. You may get hepatitis B by coming into contact with the blood or bodily fluids of someone who is infected with the virus.
Herpes is a viral infection caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV). Herpes may affect the mouth (oral herpes/ HSV type 1) or the genitals (genital herpes/ HSV type 2). The virus is transmitted through sexual intercourse or oral sex and kissing with an infected person.
Human papillomavirus (HPV)
HPV is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases that affect both men and women. The low-risk strains may cause genital warts in some people, whereas high-risk strains may cause cancers of the anus, throat, and penis in men. HPV can be transmitted through anal, oral, or vaginal sex with an infected person.
Syphilis is a bacterial STD which can be transmitted through anal, oral, or vaginal sex. The disease is considered as one of the most serious STDs in men because of its association to HIV and the high risk of developing HIV when infected with syphilis.Our Locations
