Let us say something about the most common sexually transmitted diseases and the symptoms of each of those.
Gonorrhea is one of the common sexually transmitted diseases. The incubation lasts from two to ten days after the unprotected sexual intercourse. This condition is characterized by thick or bloody penis discharge, frequent and painful urination. In some men, gonorrhea shows no symptoms at all.
Chlamydia is perhaps the most common STD. This is a bacterial infection affecting both men and women. The symptoms of Chlamydia are testicles pain, painful urination and discharge form the penis. Pain in lower abdomen is also possible. In some cases, Chlamydia shows no symptoms, so you can easily transmit it to other people. Chlamydia must be treated in time, before it results in complications that are more serious.
Genital herpes is caused by HSV (herpes simplex virus). Many men have this virus, but they are not aware of the infection. This disease is asymptomatic in the beginning. Even if the symptoms occur, they will probably be mild and a man will not even notice them. However, genital herpes symptoms usually occur when your immune system is weak, due to flu or cold. You can see small bumps in your genital area. These bumps are usually red.
