Cure for sexual transmitted disease

Particularly in western Europe, around 17 million people every year are infected with a sexually transmitted disease. Despite this number, sexually transmitted diseases are a taboo subject for many people and they are very reluctant to talk about it. Therefore, these diseases are often treated too late – people only dare to go to the doctor when they are in great distress. You can save yourself much embarrassment. At Apomeds, you can have a virtual consultation with UK-certified and experienced doctors, who will give you an online prescription after satisfactory completion of the questionnaire. You will then receive the drug in discreet packaging, within 24-48 hours.

Chlamydia

Among the most common sexually transmitted diseases worldwide, is the chlamydia infection, which is caused by the bacterium chlamydia trachomatis. Around 10% of the world's population is infected with chlamydia. Both women and men can be affected by chlamydia infection and they can be transmitters of these bacteria. However, the risk of infection is greater in young girls and women, as the cervix can easily become infected. According to estimates, around 300,000 women are diagnosed each year with this infection.

The consequences of chlamydia infection

Chlamydia bacteria, also called chlamydia trachomatis, multiply in human body cells and form chlamydia subgroups such as chlamydia pneumoniae and chlamydia psittaci. Chlamydia pneumoniae for example, can cause inflammation of the pulmonary system and paranasal sinuses. Chlamydia psittaci causes severe pneumonia. In men, an uncured chlamydia infection may result in inflammation of the testes and infertility. If a woman leaves chlamydia infection untreated, the inflammation of the uterine lining, fallopian tubes and ovaries may cause scarring and obstruction of the fallopian tubes, posing a high risk of ectopic pregnancies as well as infertility. It is estimated that around 100,000 women in the UK have become infertile because of this infection.

The symptoms of Chlamydia infection

The first symptoms manifest themselves one-three weeks after infection, and start with itching, a purulent discharge, pain and burning in the genital area while urinating. There could also be no symptoms however, and then the infection is not recognized or treated. In men, the prostate, urethra and epididymis often become inflamed. A strong urge to urinate as well as urethral pulling pains, are the signs. In women, purulent inflammation of the uterine lining, fallopian tubes and ovaries may be the result. These symptoms are usually associated with fever, diarrhoea and severe abdominal pain.

For the treatment of chlamydia, Apomeds offers the following prescription medications:

  • Azithromycin

The eponymous drug, azithromycin, is an azalide antibiotic from the group of macrolides, which prevent sensitive bacteria from growing. The highly effective brand name drug, combats the bacteria in a short time and the condition disappears quickly.

  • Doxycycline

This is an antibiotic from the class of tetracyclines, and has a broad spectrum of activity for controlling harmful germs and bacteria. In particular, the chlamydia bacteria are effectively combatted and the relevant person is quickly symptom-free.

Genital Herpes

The causes of the herpes simplex virus (HSV) are genital herpes viruses of type 1 and type 2. In 20% - 30% of cases, the cause of a genital herpes virus is type 1. Virus type 1 also causes the known cold sore or herpes labialis. Currently about 90% of the world's population are affected by type 1. The virus is transmitted through direct skin contact, coughing or sneezing. 10%-20% humans worldwide, suffer from type 2 virus, which is transmitted through close mucosal contact like sexual intercourse.

The symptoms of genital herpes

Genital herpes develops on the vagina or on the penis. In most cases, genital herpes takes its course, without complications. It starts with redness and tingling in the genital area. Shortly thereafter, the genital herpes forms blisters, which are filled with liquid. The blisters heal within 10 - 20 days depending on each individual.

Possible complications

Once herpes has broken out, it can be transmitted to other areas through contact. Eye infections can occur and cause visual impairment or even blindness. If spread to larger areas of the skin, so-called eczema herpeticatum can happen. In addition, the inflammation in the body can spread and cause meningitis, lung and in rare cases, liver inflammation.

Treatment of genital herpes

Apomeds has two highly effective drugs in its range:

  • Valtrex

This is a so-called antiviral medicine which is used for the treatment of various sexually transmitted diseases including genital warts. The drug needs a prescription.

  • Aciclovir

Aciclovir, is an active ingredient in the antivirals group, which is used worldwide to treat infectious diseases caused by certain viruses of the herpes virus family. The application should be quick to prevent the spread of genital herpes.

Genital warts

Genital warts are benign tissue growths that occur on the external genitals – anus, vagina and rectum. Millions of people suffer from this sexually transmitted disease. Genital warts are only pin size and can grow into cauliflower-like growths, if left untreated for a long time. Triggered by human papillomavirus (HPV), they are transmitted through sexual contact with infected individuals. In rare cases, they can also develop in the mouth and throat. As a result, cervical cancer in women can be triggered by the HPV virus. In people with weakened immune systems (due to HIV or taking immuno-suppressants), colon cancer can develop.

Symptoms of genital warts

Genital warts are not painful and do not cause itching. A foul- smelling secretion and slight bleeding from the warts can happen.

  • Warticon
