    Explanation
    Gonorrhea is the most common sexually transmitted disease (STD). This is because it is highly contagious and can be easily transmitted through sexual contact with an infected person. It is caused by the bacteria Neisseria gonorrhoeae and can affect both men and women. Symptoms of gonorrhea include pain or burning during urination, discharge from the genitals, and in some cases, no symptoms at all. If left untreated, gonorrhea can lead to serious complications such as pelvic inflammatory disease, infertility, and increased risk of HIV transmission. Therefore, it is important to practice safe sex and get tested regularly for STDs.

    Gonorrhea and chlamydia are sexually transmitted infections that can affect both men and women. However, in many cases, women may not experience any noticeable symptoms, leading to the term "silent infections."

    Which diseases will cause blindness in baby if infected mother delivers vaginally?

    Explanation
    Gonorrhea and chlamydia are sexually transmitted infections that can be passed from an infected mother to her baby during vaginal delivery. If a baby is exposed to these infections during birth, they can develop eye infections that can lead to blindness if left untreated. These infections can cause damage to the baby's eyes and result in conditions such as conjunctivitis and corneal scarring. Therefore, it is important for pregnant women to get tested and treated for these infections to prevent transmission to their babies.

  • 9. 

    For HIV, when do sympotoms normally begin?

    Explanation
    Symptoms of HIV typically begin within 6 months to 10-12 years after infection. This wide range is due to the variability in the progression of the disease. Some individuals may experience symptoms, such as flu-like illness, within a few weeks to months after infection (acute HIV infection). However, others may remain asymptomatic for many years (chronic HIV infection) before developing symptoms. The timing of symptom onset is influenced by various factors, including the individual's immune response, viral load, and access to treatment. It is important to note that HIV can be present and transmissible even in the absence of symptoms.

    How three diseases are caused by viruses?

    Explanation
    Hepatitis B, genital warts, and herpes are caused by viruses because these diseases are known to be primarily transmitted through viral infections. Hepatitis B is caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV), which infects the liver and can lead to chronic liver disease. Genital warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), a sexually transmitted infection that affects the genital area. Herpes is caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV), which can cause painful sores in the mouth or genital area. Viruses are responsible for these diseases as they invade and replicate within the host's cells, leading to the development of symptoms and disease.
