Parasites

Parasitic STDs include:

Crabs (Pubic Lice)

Scabies

Trichomoniasis

All of the above are caused by parasites being spread between people via sexual activity or non-sexual contact with another individual, such as from mother to infant during birth, breastfeeding, diaper changing, and in some instances from towels, clothing, bedsheets, or other objects that come in contact with an infected individual. Parasites can also cause a bacterial imbalance in the vagina, resulting in Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) or Yeast Infection. Giving someone a rim job can also expose a person to some parasites (like pinworms) as they lay their eggs around the asshole.

Intestinal Parasites, like tapeworms, are most often transmitted by contaminated food and water, during non-sexual contact involving feces that contains parasitic eggs (like changing a diaper), and sexually through anal-oral play. Often there are no symptoms, but headache, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, or bloating may occur in people with large infestations. In extreme cases, more severe symptoms can occur, such as cysts and seizures. Sometimes you can see parasites in your own feces, but a stool (feces) analysis or blood test can confirm if you have intestinal parasites and tell you what type. In most cases intestinal parasites are curable, treatment may include herbs and antiparasitic medication.
