2) Genital wart: this, in male, grows around the male genital organ and in female, it can grow around the vulva, cervix and around the anus it sometimes result to cancer of the cervix and sterility.

3) Syphilis : this is another disease which is pass on through exchange of blood. It causes damages to the heart, brain, spinal cord and other organs. It sometimes results to death of the infected person.

4) Pubic lice : this is another infection which is transmitted trough exchange of blood. Pubic lice are blood sucking crab like organism which is about the size of a pin head. They are usually lurked in the pubic hair where they cause itching, discomfort and possibly anaemia.

The Yoruba people call it ‘aisan gbajumo’ which means popular illness or illness of the popular man. Gonorrhea causes infertility in the female and urethra contractions in the male which usually result in difficulty and pain when pass out urine.
