Syphilis

Syphilis is an infection caused by bacteria. It's usually spread through sex. It's a type of sexually transmitted infection (STI).

The first symptom is usually a painless, red sore on the genitals, rectal area, or mouth. This is called a chancre. Later symptoms include a rash, a fever, swollen lymph nodes and flu like symptoms. Sometimes these symptoms go away on their own. But this doesn't mean that the infection is gone. If you don't treat syphilis with antibiotics, the infection can spread in your body. You can also spread it to others. Antibiotics can cure syphilis and prevent more serious problems caused by it.

Trichomoniasis

Trichomoniasis is a sexually transmitted infection and a common cause of vaginitis. It is caused by a single-celled protozoan parasite. Trichomoniasis is primarily an infection of the urogenital tract; the most common site of the infection is the vagina and the urethra.

SYMPTOMS IN WOMEN

Symptoms may occur within 5 to 28 days after exposure. Typically, only women experience symptoms, including inflammation of the cervix, urethra, and vagina, with burning and itching sensations. Urination and sexual intercourse may be painful. Vaginal discharge is common, appearing green-yellow colour, and producing a foul smell. Lower abdominal pain might develop.

SYMPTOMS IN MEN

In men, the parasite can be dormant for many years without any signs. Some men may temporarily exhibit symptoms such as a mild discharge, irritation inside the penis, and slight burning after urination and ejaculation.

COMPLICATIONS

In men, the parasite can be dormant for many years without any signs. Some men may temporarily exhibit symptoms such as a mild discharge, irritation inside the penis, and slight burning after urination and ejaculation.

Herpes Simplex Virus

Infection with herpes simplex virus, can be due to either herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) or herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2).

HSV-1 is mainly transmitted by oral-to-oral contact to cause infection in or around the mouth (oral herpes).

However, HSV-1 can also be transmitted through oral-genital contact to cause infection in or around the genital area (genital herpes). HSV-2 is almost exclusively transmitted through genital-to-genital contact during sex, causing infection in the genital or anal area (genital herpes).

HPV

What is HPV?

HPV, or the Human Papilloma Virus, is one of Australia’s most common viral STIs. There are over 100 strains of the virus and around 40 of them can be sexually transmitted.

Some are particularly high risk for developing cancer, while others are low risk but can be responsible for Genital Warts.

HPV can cause changes to the cells in a woman's cervix and is the single biggest cause of cervical cancer in women. HPV is also linked to throat, vulval, anal, and other forms of cancer, affecting both men and women.

Transmission

HPV is highly contagious and can be transmitted through skin-to-skin contact and the exchange of bodily fluids.

This includes oral, vaginal, or anal intercourse. It is possible, to contract the infection even when your partner is wearing protection, as the genital area can still be exposed and therefore contact your skin.

Symptoms

Most people with HPV will not have any symptoms, so the only way to know if you have HPV is to get tested.

The low-risk HPVs can cause Genital Warts.

Warts are often small red or pink growths which measure a few millimetres across though, in extreme circumstances, they can grow up to 10cm wide.

They can be flat or bumpy, resembling small raspberries or cauliflowers in appearance. Many HPV growths can be hidden or invisible, so regular HPV testing is the best way to keep track of your health.

Though the more high-risk types of HPV can cause cancer, they are not typically visible, so it is extremely important that women receive regular HPV tests and cervical smears. For MSM, regular anal swab testing is also important.

Testing

An HPV test can be done with a swab sample or urine sample. The urine HPV DNA test is the preferred choice now as it can detect HPV with better accuracy. HPV DNA test can also be done to detect HPV in Men.

Bacterial Vaginosis

Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is an infection of the vagina that develops when the normal balance of vaginal bacteria is disrupted. BV is the most common vaginal infection in women of childbearing age.

Examples of activities that change the normal bacterial balance include douching, taking antibiotics, wearing an intrauterine device (IUD), and having unprotected sexual activity.

BV is more common in sexually active women than in non-sexually active women, but it is not considered a sexually transmitted disease (STD).

The main symptom of BV is a thin vaginal discharge that appears greyish white and smells of fish, especially after sexual activity.

Other symptoms may include burning when urinating, itching around the outside of the vagina, and irritation. These symptoms may also be caused by another type of infection, so it is important to see a doctor. Many women with BV have no symptoms at all.

BV is often diagnosed based on a pelvic exam and symptoms; however certain tests can help confirm the diagnosis.

BV will sometimes go away without treatment. Your doctor may choose to treat it with antibiotics if your symptoms persist.

Ureplasma

What Is Ureaplasma Urealyticum?

Ureaplasma Urealyticum is a group of bacteria present in the urogenital and reproductive and respiratory tract. They are very tiny and are not even visible through a regular microscope. They are generally harmless but when they increase in numbers, it can result in inflammation of tissues which can lead to infection if not diagnosed in time and treated quickly.

How Does It Spread

Ureaplasma Urealyticum is usually transmitted through sexual contact. The infection is generally seen in sexually active individuals. It can also be passed from the mother to the child. Individuals with a poor immune system are generally affected.

Symptoms:

Most affected individuals don’t experience or exhibit any specific symptoms. The general symptoms are:

Diagnosis:

A specialized urine test can be done to detect Ureaplasma

Treatment:

Treatment for Ureaplasma Urealyticum is done by prescribing a course of antibiotics that includes azithromycin or doxycycline. The doctor may prescribe moxifloxacin if the response to ordinary antibiotics is not satisfactory.

Mycoplasma Genitalium

MG can affect both men and women, and is passed from person to person via their body fluids when they have sex.

That can be via penile-vaginal sex or via penile-anal sex. Transmission via oral sex isn’t thought to be a big factor.

If you’re a man with symptoms, they can vary from mild to moderate and include:

For women, symptoms may include:

Once diagnosed, you’ll be treated with a course of oral antibiotics for about two weeks. Unfortunately, you may need several courses to cure the infection due to increasing antibiotic resistance.

Genital Warts

Genital warts are a very common sexually transmitted infection caused by certain strains of the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV).

Genital warts appear in the pubic area, on the vulva (lips of the vagina), vagina, penis, scrotum, anus and perineum (part between the genitals and anus).

Often people have the HPV virus without showing any symptoms and don’t develop actual warts. Most infections clear spontaneously.

Genital warts are spread by direct skin-to-skin contact during genital sex.

It is difficult to avoid infection with HPV virus as condoms do not provide complete protection. Currently, vaccination against HPV virus is available to prevent infection with genital warts, ideally before exposure to the HPV virus.

We here at Universal Clinic can remove warts painlessly and effectively.

We also do HPV DNA testing and HPV vaccination.
