Also known as the clap, from the French word “clapier” meaning “brothel.” The bacterium Neisseria Gonorrhea infects the male urethra and the female cervix, but can also exist in moist places like the back of the throat, the rectum, and the eyes. The symptoms include burning on urination, frequent urination, yellowish vaginal discharge, redness of the genitals, swelling of the genitals, and a burning or itching of the vaginal area.
The Treponema Pallidum is a microscopic worm-like, spiral-shaped organism that burrows into the moist mucous membranes of the mouth or genitals. There are three stages of Syphilis which causes anything from ulcers to hair loss, fever, skin rashes, lesions, and possibly damage of the internal organs and the brain. Incidentally Syphilis is also called the French Disease.
Similar to Gonorrhoea, Chlamydia is found in the cervix and urethra and can also live in the throat or rectum. It is highly destructive to the fallopian tubes and can cause infertility and tubal pregnancies. In men it can cause inflammation of the urethra and rectum. Chlamydia often goes undetected.
5. Pubic Lice

It may occasionally be found on legs hairs, armpits, mustaches, beards, eyebrows, and eyelashes. Lice found on the head are not pubic lice; they are head lice.
Herpes simplex virus 1 and 2 (HSV-1 and HSV-2) are members of the herpes virus family, Herpesviridae, which cause infections in humans. HSV-1 auses cold sores and fever blisters in the mouth and around it and HSV-2 causes sores in the genital area. The lesions will heal but the infection is persistent and symptoms may recur periodically.
HIV stands for Human Immunodeficiency Virus and has now spread to every country in the world. It is one of a group of viruses known as retroviruses. After getting into the body, the virus kills or damages cells of the body’s immune system and progressively destroys the body’s ability to fight infections and certain cancers. Infection with HIV occurs by the transfer of blood, semen, vaginal fluid, pre-ejaculate, or breast milk.
