Know the Facts About Common STDs in Women!

Know the Facts About Common STDs in Women!

Although STDs are capable of affecting both genders, the impact on men and women is different. In women, this problem can cause long-term issues such as infertility in women. Although most STDs can be readily treated as soon as the symptoms surface, some cases might not throw up any symptom. Some of the curable STDs that can affect women are discussed below:

  1. Gonorrhoea: This STD is caused by bacteria living in mucous membranes of the vagina, urethra, mouth, rectum and eyes and is capable of spreading through contact. The symptoms in women include excessive discharge from the vagina, abdominal cramps, pain in the pelvic region and bleeding from the vagina after sex.

  2. Chlamydia: This STD is a result of a bacterial infection of ‘Chlamydia trachomatis’. Symptoms in females include burning sensation during urination, unusual vaginal discharge and bleeding between periods. Without treatment, the infection might spread to the urinary tract which could potentially cause PID (Pelvic Inflammatory Disease) which is capable of causing problems in pregnancy and even infertility.

  3. Genital Herpes: Genital herpes is generally caused by the herpes simplex virus-2 (HSV-2) or the herpes simplex virus-1 (HSV-1). The virus is commonly known to be the chief cause of cold sores. Symptoms may appear soon after infection and usually are severe. This includes blisters, which turn into raw and painful sores that scab and heal over time. This might be accompanied by swollen lymph nodes and fever.

  4. Chancroid: This infection is caused by the bacterium ‘Haemophilus Ducreyi’. It occurs most commonly in the vulva (the female external genital organ that includes the clitoris, labia as well as the opening of the vagina). The condition starts out as a tender lump that appears during the incubation period after intercourse. The incubation period generally ranges between 3-10 days. The bump turns into an ulcer i.e. an open sore, due to the death of the cells. This is usually painful.

  5. Syphilis: It is caused by the bacterium ‘Treponema pallidum’ and the disease mainly occurs if you have sexual intercourse without any protection, that too with multiple sexual partners. The other mode of infection is blood transfusion. Symptoms of Syphilis include appearance of ulcers around the genitals or the oral region known as a chancre, severe rashes around the hand or feet coupled with other symptoms of mild fever, headache, throat pain and immense fatigue.

These reports are normal. Only fasting is little bit high. If you want to confirm, there is 1 more test i. E hba1c which will confirm you that you are diabetic or not or even if you are pre-diabetic. The symptoms of diabetes are:- 1. Increased thirst and hunger 2. Frequent urination 3. Weight loss or gain that has no obvious cause 4. Fatigue 5. Blurred vision 6. Wounds that heal slowly 7. Nausea 8. Skin infections 9. Patches of darker skin in areas of the body that have creases 10. Irritability 11. Breath that has a sweet, fruity, or acetone odor 12. Reduced feeling in your hands or feet.

Only exercise is not a option to becoming diabetes it depends on your life style or heridritry or your family history. It depends on your eating habits and time management.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Blood glucose fasting 134 mg & PP 239 mg both show that you have still not well controlled diabetes. In a well controlled diabetes FBG should be < 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c% <6.8. Further treatment for diabetes is for lifetime, along with diet control and regular exercise. Thanks.

Losing weight and keeping it off, is not an easy task and often we are frustrated by failed attempts at doing so. The cause of such failure, mostly, is not making the attempt in a comprehensive and disciplined manner. A comprehensive lifestyle modification program for weight loss not only helps you lose weight but also leads to significant betterment of blood sugar, lipids, bp levels etc. And thus reduces your health risks of diabetes and cvd but also make you feel more in control of your life. Therefore, if you have not been able to lose weight on your own, should consider getting into one of these. The components of such a program should be the following: diet modification and calorie restriction: the diet plan you should follow should be driven by the following principles: it should be aligned to your eating preferences in terms of food and frequency of eating, as much as possible ; no diet plan (low fat or low carb, 4-5 meals a day or more or less frequent meals etc.) has been prov.

Mr. lybrate-user, It appears you have developed T2 diabetes, hence, there is glucose noticed in urine. Glucose in urine is seen only when blood glucose levels go beyond 180 mg. Exercise and diet control helps in controlling pre-diabetic condition. However, if diabetes has developed (Fasting 126 mg and above, PP 200 mg and above & HbA1c%6.5 and above), then only exercise and diet do not help. Drug treatment is a must along with diet and exercise. As regards high cholesterol, diabetes also causes dyslipidemia. Therefore, you need to start appropriate treatment and bring blood glucose under control with fasting closer to 100 mg & PP 150 to 160 mg. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Drinking alcohol does lead to increased BP. Particularly if the quantity of alcohol is more. Excessive drinking definitely causes fairly high rise in BP. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. HbA1c% 6 is suggestive of being in pre-diabetes state. Which means if proper care is not taken in terms of diet control, weight control and exercise, there is every chance of your progressing to become a diabetic person. You need to adapt a modifies lifestyle, which means taking a properly planned diet, avoiding sweets, pastries, bakery items, foods made of maida, colas, alcohol and increase intake of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Exercise regularly for at least 1 hour a day. Maintain normal weight. Your BMI is 26.64 kgs (normal < 23 kgs). So there is almost 7 kg extra weight. That needs to be reduced. Thanks.

diabetic person it is essential to follow dietary guide lines like avoid sweets, direct sugar, deep fried foods, junk food and pastries. Sweets increase the blood sugar very quickly being a simple carbohydrate. If he wants to lead a complication free life then stopping sugar and sweet eating has to be followed. You may think of replacing sugar with sucralose,

My Mom got sugar and thyroid for last two months. Please suggest me some diet chart.
Mr. Lybrate-user, diet has to be very specific for each patient. To suggest that one needs to know height, weight, fasting & pp blood glucose levels, present treatment with dosage, present dietary pattern and extent of daily exercise. With out these details diet can not be prescribed or suggested. However, she should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, white bread, other bakery items, sweetened aerated drinks and fructose corn syrup containing products. She should consume more of green leafy vegetables, permitted fruits (about 100 g a day). She should use whole grain flour for chapati and roti. Because of hypothyroidism she should avoid taking soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard and coffee. Thanks.
