Genital Infections and How They Damage The Vagina, Penis and Anus

How are sex organ infections different in men and women? Infection is infection no matter gender. There’s no distinction really, other from the body part it affects and also the actual name of the infection. For instance: bacterial vaginosis is familiar in girls affecting the vagina causing symptoms, while, balanitis may be a penile condition that additionally causes symptoms, but familiar in men affecting the phallus.

If the vagina is infected the matter becomes a woman’s issue, and if the erectile organ is infected the matter then becomes a man issue, nevertheless, there are always going to be SYMPTOMS, thus in my opinion that makes whatever the infection a matter for a doctor – making male and female genital infections very similar indeed.

Balanitis is an inflammation of the glans (the rounded head) of the penis.

Posthitis is inflammation of the foreskin. Foreskin is the loose skin that covers the head of the phallus if the man has not been circumcised. If the two, glans and foreskin are inflamed, it’s known as balanoposthitis.

Syphilis comes in four stages, each with a different set of symptoms, ranging from mild tosevere. Syphilis is a slowly progressing disease.

Primary stage of syphilis: One or a lot of painless sores/ulcers (chancres) develop at the location where the microorganism initial entered the body. Chancres may be hard to spot and are highly infectious. Typical places to see them are:

•             On the vulva or cervix

•             On the penis

•             Anus and mouth

Secondary stage syphilis symptoms often include:

•             Swollen glands with loss of appetite, fatigue and a flu-like feeling

•             A Rash which usually covers the whole body or comes in patches.

•             Flat, warty-looking growths on the vulva and around the anus

•             White patches on the tongue or roof of the mouth

•             Hair loss

Latent and tertiary stages of syphilis typically happens mostly when  treatment was left too late in the first 2 stages. The patient will currently no longer suffer many symptoms of the earlier stages, but their infection can still be diagnosed with a blood test. Symptomatic late syphilis, also known as the tertiary stage is now the end result. This stage is serious and could affect the heart and nervous system.
