Anyone who is sexually active is at risk for a Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) or Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI).
These include: HIV, syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, genital warts, trichomoniasis, genital yeast infections, genital ulcer disease, genital herpes, urethritis, anal warts, and many more. You can teach yourself about the risks depending on which STD or STI you have. If you have a low risk STD or STI, you probably don’t need to worry too much.
If you’re sexually active, you may be at risk for contracting an STI. While you are exposing yourself to potential infection, you’ll not get the most serious ones, like HIV, by doing so. With proper precautions, however, fighting the STDs and STIs here and now can be a lot easier.
STDs are spread through contact with bodily fluids of an infected person. They are present in the environment. They are also present in the air you breathe. Some pets also have their own bodily fluids, and when you scratch or bite your pet, she is also shedding her own bodily fluids. These bodily fluids include penis, vagina, and testicles. They can also include blood from your puppy’s blood sugar. This blood sugar, dehydrated meat juice, could be present in your dog’s feces. This is a potential infection, and it can easily set your puppy back because she is losing her valuable energy source (male energy).
STDs can include some of the following symptoms: venereal disease (such as at least two genital ulcers or transmission of gonorrhea), syphilis, chlamydial infection (syphilis) and genital warts (HPV). Gonorrhea infection usually starts soon after sexual intercourse (without condoms or practiced ground control techniques, anal intercourse can be necessary depending on the case). Chlamydial (HPV) infection occurs only in those and generally affects younger females.
Some STIs occur only in men, not women. In MtFs who have labiaplasty, abnormal genitalia can cause STIs. Most men under the age of 45 will develop a STD at some time in their life. In this group, STDs are usually caused by a sexually transmitted skin infection, such as herpes simplex. The incidence of STIs in MtFs is rather low in the US (1% of males). In Japan, the infection rate is much higher because there is a much higher prevalence of penile cancer in MtFs.
STDs can cause age-related changes, ranging from only minor ones, such as infertility or muscle weakness, to fatal ones. The onset is usually gradual. But you can see your puppy get dehydrated if he or she has contracted some of the more serious STDs from a practitioner who practices properly.
Gonorrhoea (infection of the mucous membrane of the female reproductive tract, sometimes causing severe pain and bleeding, and often accompanied by urethral discharge, pain while peeing, and pain during sex when the urethra is not dilated);
A gonorrhea infection will usually have no symptoms at first, but if you have been exposed, you can get checked up at a doctor and you might see the gonococcus cells in your private areas. If you find small pieces of the bacteria, or even worse, a cluster, you must take immediate action.
The herpes simplex virus is typically contracted from genitals (including the penis, vagina, vulva, and anus), but can also occur through oral contact. The signs and symptoms are very similar since this is a very common virus both in human and veterinary medicine. It is caused by a human herpes virus (HSV) that is airborne and replicates in the respiratory tract of human beings or 4-5% of each population. If you catch HSV from oral contact (including mouth-to-penis contact with masturbation or your waste), it can be transmitted to others through the respiratory tract. HSV can create genital ulcers, often called dental herpes. Dogs can be carriers of HSV for as long as two years and before the ulcers surface, the saliva is not able to fight the infection.
