Sexual transmission of STD has been described from men to men, men to women, women to men, and women to women through vaginal, anal, and oral sex. The best way to avoid sexual transmission is abstinence from sex until it is certain that both partners in a monogamous relationship are not STD-infected.
STD or sexually transmitted disease are kinds of crabs. What are these? They are not crustaceans but crabs are lice. What makes it an STD is that these lice are commonly found in the male or female genital area, and is most usually transmitted during sexual intercourse. Sometimes, actually, very rarely, these can also be transferred through clothes and other cloth-like materials that often and regularly touch a human's body. They are insects or parasites if you will, that like to live around a warm area. There is a myth that someone can get crabs from the toilet. This is a false belief since as mentioned earlier, crabs like to live around a warm area. Also, crabs do not have feet that can hold on to something as slippery or smooth as a toilet bowl so they could not possibly stay on a toilet seat for very long.
This infection is very common, so it is not unique to an area, a country or a continent. Anyone can have crabs, especially those who are sexually active, so it is important to know important facts about it. Crabs are STDs, after all.
Pubic lice, as crabs are also called, can be also found in other warm and hairy places around the body. Crabs can infect the hair on your legs, the hair on your armpit, your bushy eyebrows and even your beard and mustache! You may ask, what about the head? The head is warm and hairy! Truth be told, the lice on your head is called head lice, and are not crabs, or pubic lice.
Why are pubic lice called crabs? Well, pubic lice are called crabs because of their appearance. As an adult lice, it will have two very long front legs that look like crab pincers, thus the nickname of "crabs". However, it will not be easy to see crabs using only your two naked eyes. You will be able to see crabs and its crab-like pincers with the very big help of a powerful magnifying glass. There have been reported sightings of crabs without the aid of any magnifying tools; they can be seen running around if one has an infestation, so movement in the pubic area will make the crabs more visible. One can only be careful in looking for crabs. They are also very sensitive to light, so any use of a lighting tool or material will send them scurrying to the shadows.
How do you know that you have crabs? Your genital area will start itching like crazy. You may also get to see some crabs crawling in the area as well.
Crabs as an STD is not a very fun thing to have. Now that you know so much about crabs, and when you start itching in that area, be sure to have yourself checked and tested by medical professionals to make sure that you do not get or at most, treat the infestation of crabs.
