Homeopathy Medicine for Sexually Transmitted Diseases

360

The organisms (bacteria, viruses, or parasites) that cause sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) — or sexually transmitted infections (STIs) — may spread from person to person in blood, semen, vaginal, and other bodily fluids. Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are typically contracted through sexual contact.

These infections can occasionally be spread nonsexually, such as when a mother gives birth to a baby and then passes the baby to the mother, or when people share needles or receive blood transfusions.

Sexually transmitted diseases can be acquired from individuals who appear to be in perfect health and may not even be aware that they are infected because symptoms are not always present.

Symptoms

They may go unnoticed until complications arise or a partner is diagnosed because sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) or sexually transmitted infections (STIs) can present with a variety of signs and symptoms, including no symptoms.

  • the oral cavity, the rectal area, or genital sores or bumps
  • Painful or burning urination
  • Discharge from the penis
  • Vaginal discharge that is unusual or strange-smelling
  • Unusual vaginal bleeding
  • Pain during sex
  • lymph nodes that are sore and swollen, often more numerous and in the groin
  • Lower abdominal pain
  • Fever
  • the hands, feet, or trunk with a rash

Depending on the organism, signs and symptoms might start to show up a few days after exposure or you might not notice anything until years later.

Causes

Sexually transmitted conditions, also known as STDs or STIs, can be brought on by

  • Bacteria (gonorrhea, syphilis, chlamydia)
  • Parasites (trichomoniasis)
  • Viruses (genital herpes, HIV, human papillomavirus)

Numerous other infections, such as the hepatitis A, B, and C viruses, shigella, and Giardia intestinalis, are spread through sexual activity, though it is still possible to become infected without having sex.

Risk factors

Anyone who engages in sexual activity runs the risk of contracting an STD or an STI to some extent.

  • Having unprotected sex.The risk of contracting an STI is significantly increased by vaginal or anal penetration by an infected partner who is not wearing a latex condom, as well as by improper or irregular condom use.

    Even though oral sex poses less of a risk than physical sex, infections can still be spread without the use of a dental dam, which is a tiny, square piece of silicone or latex rubber.

  • Having sexual contact with multiple partners.This holds true for concurrent partners as well as monogamous consecutive relationships, the more people you have sexual contact with, the higher your risk.

  • Having a history of STIs.When one STI is present, it is much simpler for another to spread.

  • Anyone forced to have sexual intercourse or sexual activity.It can be challenging to deal with rape or assault, but it’s crucial to visit a doctor as soon as you can in order to receive screening, treatment, and emotional support.

  • Misuse of alcohol or use of recreational drugs.Misuse of drugs or alcohol can impair judgment, which can lead you to engage in riskier activities.

  • Injecting drugs.Sharing needles can spread a variety of harmful infections, such as hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and HIV.

  • Being young.People aged 15 to 24 make up half of those who contract STIs.

  • Men who request prescriptions for drugs to treat erectile dysfunction.If you ask your doctor for one of these medications, be sure you are up to date on safe sex practices. Men who ask their doctors for prescriptions for drugs like sildenafil (Viagra, Revatio), tadalafil (Cialis, Adcirca), and vardenafil (Levitra) have higher rates of STIs.

Transmission from mother to infant

All pregnant women should be screened for these infections and treated if necessary because some STIs, such as gonorrhea, chlamydia, HIV, and syphilis, can be transmitted from an infected mother to her child during pregnancy or delivery and can result in serious complications or even death in infants.

Complications

Screening for STIs is crucial in preventing complications because many people with an STD or STI do not exhibit any symptoms in the early stages of the disease.

Possible complications include:

  • Pelvic pain
  • Pregnancy complications
  • Eye inflammation
  • Arthritis
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Infertility
  • Heart disease
  • Several cancers, including rectal and cervical cancers linked to HPV

Prevention

There are a number of strategies you can use to prevent or lower your risk of contracting an STD or STI.

  • Abstain.It is best to refrain from having sex in order to prevent STIs.

  • Stay with one uninfected partner.Staying in a committed, long-term monogamous relationship with a partner who is not infected and with whom you only have sex is a reliable way to prevent STIs.

  • Wait and test.While oral sex is less dangerous, use a latex condom or dental dam to avoid direct (skin-to-skin) contact between the oral and genital mucous membranes until you have both been tested for STIs.

  • Get vaccinated.Vaccines are available to prevent hepatitis A, hepatitis B, and the human papillomavirus (HPV), and are also effective in preventing some types of STIs when received early, before sexual exposure.

    The HPV vaccine is advised for girls and boys between the ages of 11 and 12, and if they have not received it by then, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises girls and women to receive it until the age of 26, and boys and men to receive it until the age of 26.

    Both vaccines are advised for those who are not immune to these diseases and for those who are at increased risk of infection, such as men who have sex with men and IV drug users. The hepatitis B vaccine is typically given to newborns, and the hepatitis A vaccine is advised for 1-year-olds.

  • Use condoms and dental dams consistently and correctly.Never use an oil-based lubricant, such as petroleum jelly, with a latex condom or dental dam. Always use a fresh latex condom or dental dam for each sex act, whether oral, vaginal, or anal.

    Remember that while condoms lower your risk of exposure to most STIs, they offer less protection for STIs involving exposed genital sores, such as HPV or herpes, and nonbarrier forms of contraception, such as birth control pills (oral contraceptives) or intrauterine devices (IUDs), do not provide STI protection. Condoms made from natural membranes are not recommended because they are not as effective at preventing STIs.

  • Don’t drink alcohol excessively or use drugs.Being drunk increases your propensity to engage in risky sexual behavior.

  • Communicate.Make sure you and your partner are clear about what behaviors are and are not acceptable before engaging in any serious sexual activity.

  • Consider male circumcision.Male circumcision may help prevent transmission of genital HPV and genital herpes, and there is evidence that it can help reduce a man’s risk of contracting HIV from a woman who is infected (heterosexual transmission) by as much as 60%.

Consider preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP).Emtricitabine plus tenofovir alafenamide (Descovy) and Emtricitabine plus tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (Truvada) have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in combination therapy to lower the risk of sexually transmitted HIV infection in those who are at very high risk.

HOMOEOPATHIC TREATMENT

Many STDs can be treated with homeopathy without the need for long-term medication use or unpleasant side effects, and some of the most popular ones are as follows:

  • Allium Sativa
  • Hepar Sulph
  • Medorrhinum
  • Mercurius
  • Sempervivum
