Gonorrhea is a highly contagious bacterial infection that spreads through sexual contact with the vagina, penis, anus, or mouth of an infected person.
Many people with gonorrhea do not show symptoms. However, when symptoms appear, the patient may experience vaginal discharge, itching or burning when urinating, discharge from white, green, or yellow liquid out of the penis, or bleeding when the woman is not menstruating. .
Gonorrhea can be treated but can cause serious complications if not treated. In women, untreated gonorrhea can cause a condition called pelvic inflammatory disease. This syndrome can cause infertility. Gonorrhea can also cause infertility in men, although there are fewer cases.
Herpes is a virus that is transmitted through vaginal, oral, or anal contact with someone who has herpes. This disease is very contagious and tends to be more contagious when the epidemic is active.

It is possible for a person to suffer from herpes for years without experiencing symptoms. Herpes cannot be cured, but medication from a doctor can treat the symptoms.
Syphilis is a bacterial infection that spreads through the vagina, oral, penis, anal, or skin contact. Wounds, even though they are very small, can be a medium of transmission of syphilis.
