What can be common STDs in men and their symptoms?

Resolved Question:

Sir, I am 37 years old and have recently read that- ‘although condoms are highly effective for reducing transmission of STDs, keep in mind that no method is foolproof’. I sometimes get involve into unprotected sexual encounters with women. Can you tell me names of STDs affecting men along with their symptoms?
