WAYS OF TRANSMISSION HIV is transmitted in a number of different ways: Having sex (anal, vaginal, or oral), sharing needles and syringes, being exposed before or during birth or through breast feeding, blood transfusions.

EARLY SYMPTOMS OF HIV INFECTION About 60% will not have any symptoms when they first become infected with HIV. About 40% experiences symptoms between one week and two months after exposure to the virus. This illness may include one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Tiredness
  • Sore throat
  • Enlarged lymph nodes
  • Rash

These symptoms usually disappear within a week to a month and are often mistaken for those of another viral infection. During this period, people are very infectious, and HIV is present in large quantities in genital fluids.

More persistent or severe symptoms may not appear for 10 years or more after HIV first enters the body in adults, or within 2 years in children born with HIV infection. This period of "asymptomatic" infection varies greatly in each individual. Some people may begin to have symptoms within a few months, while others may be symptom-free for more than 10 years.

Even during the asymptomatic period, the virus is actively multiplying, infecting, and killing cells of the immune system. The virus can also hide within infected cells and lay dormant. The most obvious effect of HIV infection is a decline in the number of CD4 positive T (CD4+) cells found in the blood-the immune system's key infection fighters. The virus slowly disables or destroys these cells without causing symptoms.

As the immune system worsens, a variety of complications start to take over. For many people, the first signs of infection are large lymph nodes or "swollen glands" that may be enlarged for more than 3 months. Other symptoms often experienced months to years before the onset of AIDS include

  • Lack of energy
  • Weight loss
  • Frequent fevers and sweats
  • Persistent or frequent yeast infections (oral or vaginal)
  • Persistent skin rashes or flaky skin
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease in women that does not respond to treatment
  • Short-term memory loss

Some people develop frequent and severe herpes infections that cause mouth, genital, or anal sores, or a painful nerve disease called shingles. Children may grow slowly or be sick a lot.

WAYS OF TRANSMISSION Chlamydia can be transmitted during vaginal, anal, or oral sex. Chlamydia can also be passed from an infected mother to her baby during vaginal childbirth.

SYMPTOMS OF CHLAMYDIA INFECTION About 75% of women and 50% of men will not have any symptoms when they are infected with Chlamydia. This illness may include one or more of the following symptoms:

Women:

  • Abnormal vaginal discharge
  • Burning sensation when urinating
  • Lower abdominal pain
  • Low back pain
  • Nausea
  • Fever
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Bleeding between menstrual periods

Men:

  • Discharge from penis
  • Burning sensation when urinating
  • Itching around the opening of the penis
  • Pain and swelling in the testicles

Men and women:

  • Rectal pain, discharge and/or bleeding
  • Sore throat

These symptoms usually occur within 1 to 3 weeks after infection.

COMPLICATIONS OF CHLAMYDIA INFECTION If untreated, Chlamydial infections can progress to serious reproductive and other health problems with both short-term and long-term consequences. Like the disease itself, the damage that Chlamydia causes is often "silent."

In women, untreated infection can spread into the uterus or fallopian tubes and cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). This happens in up to 40 percent of women with untreated Chlamydia. PID can cause permanent damage to the fallopian tubes, uterus, and surrounding tissues. The damage can lead to chronic pelvic pain, infertility, and potentially fatal ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy outside the uterus). Women infected with Chlamydia are up to five times more likely to become infected with HIV, if exposed.

In men, infection sometimes spreads to the epididymis (the tube that carries sperm from the testis), causing pain, fever, and sterility.

Genital Chlamydial infection can also cause arthritis that can be accompanied by skin lesions and inflammation of the eye and urethra (Reiter's syndrome).

WAYS OF TRANSMISSION Gonorrhea is spread through contact with the penis, vagina, mouth, or anus. Ejaculation does not have to occur for gonorrhea to be transmitted or acquired. Gonorrhea can also be spread from mother to baby during delivery.

SYMPTOMS OF GONORRHEA INFECTION Most women and some men will not have any symptoms when they are infected with gonorrhea. This illness may include one or more of the following symptoms:

Women:

  • Abnormal vaginal discharge
  • Burning sensation when urinating
  • Bleeding between menstrual periods
  • Abdominal pain
  • Fever

Men:

  • Discharge from penis
  • Burning sensation when urinating
  • Pain and swelling in and near the testicles

Men and women:

  • Rectal pain, discharge, itching, soreness, bleeding and/or painful bowel movements
  • Sore throat

These symptoms usually occur within 2 to 30 days after infection.

COMPLICATIONS OF GONORRHEA INFECTION Untreated gonorrhea can cause serious and permanent health problems in both women and men.

In women, gonorrhea is a common cause of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). About one million women each year in the United States develop PID. The symptoms may be quite mild or can be very severe and can include abdominal pain and fever. PID can lead to internal abscesses (pus-filled "pockets" that are hard to cure) and long-lasting, chronic pelvic pain. PID can damage the fallopian tubes enough to cause infertility or increase the risk of ectopic pregnancy. Ectopic pregnancy is a life-threatening condition in which a fertilized egg grows outside the uterus, usually in a fallopian tube.

In men, gonorrhea can cause epididymitis, a painful condition of the ducts attached to the testicles that may lead to infertility if left untreated.

Gonorrhea can spread to the blood or joints. This condition can be life threatening. In addition, people with gonorrhea can more easily contract HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. HIV-infected people with gonorrhea can transmit HIV more easily to someone else than if they did not have gonorrhea.

WAYS OF TRANSMISSION Syphilis is passed from person to person through direct contact with a syphilis sore. Sores occur mainly on the external genitals, vagina, anus, or in the rectum. Sores also can occur on the lips and in the mouth.

SYMPTOMS OF SYPHILIS INFECTION Many people infected with syphilis don't get any symptoms, except the primary stage chancre, until they enter the last stage of the disease. Although transmission occurs from persons with sores who are in the primary or secondary stage, many of these sores are unrecognized. Thus, transmission may occur from persons who are unaware of their infection.

Primary stage symptoms:

  • A single sore, a chancre, usually firm, round, small and painless.

Secondary stage symptoms:

  • Skin rash
  • Mucous membrane lesions
  • Fever
  • Swollen lymph glands
  • Sore throat
  • Patchy hair loss
  • Headaches
  • Weight loss
  • Muscle aches
  • Fatigue

Latent stage:

  • No symptoms

Late stage:

  • Difficulty coordinating muscle movements
  • Paralysis
  • Numbness
  • Gradual blindness
  • Dementia
  • Death

The symptom for the first stage usually occur within 10 to 90 days after infection, symptoms for the late stage can occur after 10 to 20 years
