For herpes, quite minimual. Herpes of the genitals is almost identical to herpes of the mouth (cold sores). It usually doesn't have any serious health consequences. You may have outbreaks, or pass it to others, but it's not going to seriously harm your health.
Syphilis is a little more dangerous. Not only can it destroy your reproductive organs, but it also affects your brain. Van Gogh was believed to have been suffering from advanced stages of syphilis when he cut off his ear. It's a bit like the rabies of STD's.
