Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs or STDs) can be produced by about 30 types of bacteria, viruses and known parasites, which are spread through the practice of sexual relations between people.
STDs do not respect sexual orientation, age or socioeconomic status; we are all susceptible to contracting them, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC, for its acronym in English).
Although we all know the main STDs that exist and we know how to protect ourselves, an international group of researchers has discovered in Japan a new strain of these diseases.
The intimate female area is extremely delicate. It requires very special care, it is also necessary to maintain impeccable hygiene.
More and more women are suffering from discomfort in this area of â€‹â€‹the body, because they do not know what attention they should have with their vaginal area.
The most common condition is an inflammation of the tissue of the cervix.
This produces discomfort such as itching, swelling, burning during urination, pain during sex, gray or yellow vaginal discharge, and abnormal bleeding after intimate relationships, especially when menopause has been established.
