3 Sexually Transmitted Infections That Can Not Be Cured Medically.

Sexually transmitted diseases are dangerous infections that can harm your physical and emotional well-being. Sexual contact, including vaginal, anal, and oral sex, spreads STI. Some sexually transmitted diseases that cannot be treated medically are as follows:



1. Chronic Hepatitis B (HBV):

According to "WebMD", After six months of having the virus, chronic hepatitis develops. The symptoms might appear at any time and remain for the rest of a person's life. Chronic hepatitis B can cause chronic infection or liver damage.

2. HIV/AIDS (Human Immunodeficiency Virus and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome): HIV is a chronic infection that attacks the immune system and can lead to AIDS if left untreated. To keep the virus load under control, antiretroviral medication can be used.

3. HPV.

Some strains can cause genital warts, while others can cause cancers such as cervical cancer. Women infected with the virus may have no symptoms for years until they have abnormal pap test results.

4. Oral herpes.

Also known as cold sores, oral herpes is caused by the HSV-1 strain of the virus. Even if the virus is dormant, it can still spread.
