Transcript 'CONNECTIONS5 SYPHILIS / GONORRHEA by Gerry Tarr One of life's great joys is the thrill and excitement of sexuality. Since the beginning of time, individuals have indulged themselves in erotic ecstasy. But, as with most things, there are drawbacks. Syphilis and gonorrhea are spread by sexual contact. In Texas, over the past two years, infectious syphilis increased 36% among women and men 20-24 years old. It increased 18% for those 15-19 years of age. Over the past four years, gonorrhea increased 23% in the 15-19 age group and 24% in the 20-24 age group. Significant increases in both syphilis and gonorrhea have been seen in the age group 25 and over. With syphilis, if any symptoms appear at all, the first stage symptoms will generally begin 10-90 days (average 21 days) after exposure. A painless lesion (sore) appears on the genitals, mouth, rectum, vagina, or any other site exposed to the germs. This lesion may last several days or weeks. It will gradually disappear without treatment. Within a few days, or even up to 10 weeks after the first lesion disappears, a body rash, whitish patches in the mouth, swollen joints, flu-like illness, and/or loss of hair may occur. Any of these symptoms will last several weeks and then disappear without treatment. In the last stage of syphilis, if untreated, these complications may occur 5, 10, 15, even 20 years after Syphilis screening at Club Dallas baths. STD clinics are appearing all over the country. Roy Hall/METRO STAR insanity, paralysis, infection: brain and organ damage, heart disease, death. „.,_ The symptoms of gonorrhea usually appear 2-6 days after contact with an infected individual. They may be so mild that they go unnoticed or they may not appear at all. Men may have a burning pain when urinating and a discharge of whitish pus from the penis. Seme men with the disease have no apparent symptoms. There are usually no symptoms of gonorrhea in women. For both sexes, there may be no symptoms or a mild to severe sore throat, fever and chills, if the infection is oral. An anal infection may have either no symptoms, or a discharge, intense rectal irritation, a feeling of an incomplete bowel movement, and burning during defecation or intercourse. If untreated. Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) is the most common and dangerous complication of gonorrhea in women. Every case of syphilis and/or gonorrhea requires immediate examination and treatment of all sexual partners in order to prevent serious complications and the possibility of further spread. By state law, all cases are confidential. Minors may request their own examination and treatment without fear of parents or guardians finding out. Remember, only you can protect your health and that of those you care about!
