Can STDs tests also reveal other diseases that aren't sexually transmitted?

I'm just curious to know if when your tested for STDS with the blood work and all will it show other possible diseases that you may have that aren't sexually transmited? Sorry if this sounds dumb, I'm just curious.

No, and it might not even show the STD if the waiting period isn't long enough, i.e. HIV can show up as late a a year or more after infection.  (+ info)

How do sex workers prevent sexually transmitted diseases?

Some STD's are transmitted even when you use a condom so how do sex workers prevent STD's? Do they ask their potential clients if they have an STD?

There would be no point in asking anyone if they have an STD. A lot of STD's have an incubation period when there are no signs or symptoms Bigger yet is sex workers wear protection and make their partner or client wear protection. They are tested on a routine basis (most of them anyway). So being proactive in prevention followed up with routine testing and having knowledge about STD,s keep a lot of the diseases at bay.  (+ info)

Can contracting 2 sexually transmitted diseases be the reason why I cant get pregnant now?

The diseases were Tric and gonaherra, the first time I admit it happend from a one night stand and It happend the second time when I was dating my ex for over a year. Could this be why I cant get pregnant with the boyfriend I am with now?

These diseases can only lead to infertility if you have them for a while and don't get treated. When u these infections are in ur body for a while, they subsequently lead to Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, which causes infertility and has no cure! I'm not saying that having gono and trich caused ur STD per se...but if you had them for a while before u got treated, they may have indirectly caused infertility! But, you may not be infertile at all...you should check with a fertility specialist or ur gyno to see if u have PID!  (+ info)

What can cause adults to get bacterial tonsillitis? Can it be transmitted sexually?

I have a friend who got bacterial tonsillitis, but they are not around kids. I am now wondering how they got this ailment. Can anyone help me with this question?

It is a possibility

When tonsillitis is caused by bacteria, the most common type of bacteria that causes tonsillitis are streptococci.
Glandular fever is one of the viral illnesses which can cause tonsillitis, but there are many other viruses that may also be responsible.These includes: herpes simplex virus, Streptococcus pyogenes (GABHS) and Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), cytomegalovirus, adenovirus, and the measles virus.
The following are the most common symptoms for tonsillitis:

Tonsillitis causes include viral infections such as the flu, the common cold, mononucleosis. Streptococcus is the most common bacterial cause. Bacterial tonsillitis can be treated with antibiotics, but viral tonsillitis cannot.

Tonsillitis is transmitted most commonly from one person to another by social contact such as-
coughs, sneezes, and nasal fluids.
Only about 30% of tonsillitis in children is caused by strep throat.

Only 10% of tonsillitis in adults is caused by strep throat.
There will be pain in mouth with swallowing.
loss of appetite is the common symptom of tonsillitis.
There will be high temperature during tonsillitis.
abdominal pain
In tonsillitis, there will be white or yellow spots of pus on the tonsils.
Sore throat - some children complain of pain in their tummy, rather than a sore throat.
Swollen lymph glands under each side of the jaw.  (+ info)

Is it possible to be born with sexually transmitted diseases?

I mean, in the case where you never had sex, never used shared needles, etc. Then you go to the doctor's to be checked out. Is it possible that even though your parents didn't have any diseases can you be born with any of them or can they only be contracted through contact and not through birth or genetics?

You can only be born with HIV or herpes if your mother has it at the time that you are born. If your mother did not have any STDs when you were born, you could not have been born with any STDs.  (+ info)

What are the top 5 sexually transmitted diseases?

How are they transmitted? And what are their side effects?

Looks like some just randomly named STDs off the top of their head.

Do you mean prevalence or new infections? HPV and HSV have a higher prevalence by far as they are viral but trich would likely take the top award for new infections/year.

Since "new cases" are estimated, Ill list them in prevalence as reported by the CDC--

3 Trichomoniasis
4 Chlamydia
5 Gonorrhea

You could dispute the prevalence of HSV vs. HPV but there really isnt solid numbers to verify either way. Most STDs go undiagnosed in the first place so determining actual numbers is near impossible.

I left lice, scabies, candida, bacterial vaginosis, molluscum contagiosum off the list as they arent necessarily transmitted by sexual contact and therefor difficult to compare.

By the way, HIV infection isnt even close to being top 5.  (+ info)
