Parenting: Performing the role of a parent by care-giving, nurturance, and protection of the child by a natural or substitute parent. The parent supports the child by exercising authority and through consistent, empathic, appropriate behavior in response to the child's needs. PARENTING differs from CHILD REARING in that in child rearing the emphasis is on the act of training or bringing up the children and the interaction between the parent and child, while parenting emphasizes the responsibility and qualities of exemplary behavior of the parent.Fertility: The capacity to conceive or to induce conception. It may refer to either the male or female.Pregnancy: The status during which female mammals carry their developing young (EMBRYOS or FETUSES) in utero before birth, beginning from FERTILIZATION to BIRTH.Infertility, Female: Diminished or absent ability of a female to achieve conception.Pregnancy Complications: Conditions or pathological processes associated with pregnancy.

Demographic, clinical and social factors associated with human immunodeficiency virus infection and other sexually transmitted diseases in a cohort of women from the United Kingdom and Ireland. MRC Collaborative Study of women with HIV. (1/2672)BACKGROUND: Clinical experience suggests many women with HIV infection have experienced no other sexually transmitted diseases (STD). Our objective was to test the hypothesis that a substantial proportion of women with HIV infection in the United Kingdom and Ireland have experienced no other diagnosed STD and to describe the demographic, clinical and social factors associated with the occurrence of other STD in a cohort of HIV infected women. METHOD: Analysis of cross-sectional baseline data from a prospective study of 505 women with diagnosed HIV infection. The setting was 15 HIV treatment centres in the United Kingdom and Ireland. The main outcome measures were occurrence of other STD diagnosed for the first time before and after HIV diagnosis. Data were obtained from interview with women and clinic notes. We particularly focused on occurrence of gonorrhoea, chlamydia and trichomoniasis after HIV diagnosis, as these are the STD most likely to reflect recent unprotected sexual intercourse. RESULTS: The women were mainly infected via heterosexual sex (n = 304), and injection drug use (n = 174). 151 were black Africans. A total of 250 (49.5%) women reported never having been diagnosed with an STD apart from HIV, 255 (50.5%) women had ever experienced an STD besides HIV, including 109 (21.6%) who had their first other STD diagnosed after HIV. Twenty-five (5%) women reported having had chlamydia, gonorrhoea or trichomoniasis diagnosed for the first time after HIV diagnosis, possibly reflecting unprotected sexual intercourse since HIV diagnosis. In all 301 (60%) women reported having had sex with a man in the 6 months prior to entry to the study. Of these, 168 (58%) reported using condoms 'always', 66(23%) 'sometimes' and 56 (19%) 'never'. CONCLUSIONS: Half the women in this study reported having never experienced any other diagnosed STD besides HIV. However, after HIV diagnosis most women remain sexually active and at least 5% had an STD diagnosed which reflect unprotected sexual intercourse. (+info)
Anaerobes in pelvic inflammatory disease: implications for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's guidelines for treatment of sexually transmitted diseases. (2/2672)In preparing the 1998 sexually transmitted disease treatment guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, we reviewed evidence regarding the need to eradicate anaerobes when treating pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). Anaerobes are present in the upper genital tract during an episode of acute PID, with the prevalence dependent on the population under study. Vaginal anaerobes can facilitate acquisition of PID and cause tissue damage to the fallopian tube, either directly or indirectly through the host inflammatory response. Use of several broad-spectrum regimens appears to result in excellent clinical cure rates, despite the fact that some combinations fall short of providing comprehensive coverage of anaerobes. There are limited data on the long-term effects of failing to eradicate anaerobes from the upper genital tract. Concern that tissue damage may continue when anaerobes are suboptimally treated has prompted many experts to caution that therapeutic regimens should include comprehensive anaerobic coverage for optimal treatment of women with PID.

Sexually transmitted diseases in abused children and adolescent and adult victims of rape: review of selected literature. (3/2672)Sexual assault (defined as sexual relations with another person obtained through physical force, threat, or intimidation) of children includes genital fondling, photographing, or viewing for sexual gratification; exposure of the child to pornographic material or to adult sexual activity; and attempted or successful penetration of any of the child's orifices. The purpose of this investigation was to review the medical literature published since 1988 that reported on the prevalence of particular sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) in populations of sexually assaulted adults and adolescents and sexually abused children, as well as the prevalence of sexual abuse among children who present with an STD. These data will be helpful for managing cases of sexual assault involving children, adolescents, or adults; estimating the risk of abuse among children with specific STDs; and identifying research priorities in this area.

Diagnosis and treatment of sexually acquired proctitis and proctocolitis: an update. (4/2672)Sexually transmitted gastrointestinal syndromes include proctitis, proctocolitis, and enteritis. These syndromes can be caused by one or multiple pathogens. Routes of sexual transmission and acquisition include unprotected anal intercourse and oral-fecal contact. Evaluation should include appropriate diagnostic procedures such as anoscopy or sigmoidoscopy, stool examination, and culture. When laboratory diagnostic capabilities are sufficient, treatment should be based on specific diagnosis. Empirical therapy for acute proctitis in persons who have recently practiced receptive anal intercourse should be chosen to treat Neisseria gonorrhoeae and Chlamydia trachomatis infections. In individuals infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), other infections that are not usually sexually acquired may occur, and recurrent herpes simplex virus infections are common. The approach to gastrointestinal syndromes among HIV-infected patients, therefore, can be more comprehensive and will not be discussed in this article. (+info)
Where do people go for treatment of sexually transmitted diseases? (5/2672)CONTEXT: Major public health resources are devoted to the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) through public STD clinics. However, little is known about where people actually receive treatment for STDs. METHODS: As part of the National Health and Social Life Survey, household interviews were performed from February to September 1992 with 3,432 persons aged 18-59. Weighted population estimates and multinomial response methods were used to describe the prevalence of self-reported STDs and patterns of treatment utilization by persons who ever had a bacterial or viral STD. RESULTS: An estimated two million STDs were self-reported in the previous year, and 22 million 18-59-year-olds self-reported lifetime STDs. Bacterial STDs (gonorrhea, chlamydia, nongonococcal urethritis, pelvic inflammatory disease and syphilis) were more common than viral STDs (genital herpes, genital warts, hepatitis and HIV). Genital warts were the most commonly reported STD in the past year, while gonorrhea was the most common ever-reported STD. Almost half of all respondents who had ever had an STD had gone to a private practice for treatment (49%); in comparison, only 5% of respondents had sought treatment at an STD clinic. Respondents with a bacterial STD were seven times more likely to report going to an STD clinic than were respondents with a viral STD--except for chlamydia, which was more likely to be treated at family planning clinics. Men were significantly more likely than women to go to an STD clinic. Young, poor or black respondents were all more likely to use a family planning clinic for STD treatment than older, relatively wealthy or white respondents. Age, sexual history and geographic location did not predict particular types of treatment-seeking. CONCLUSIONS: The health care utilization patterns for STD treatment in the United States are complex. Specific disease diagnosis, gender, race and income status all affect where people will seek treatment. These factors need to be taken into account when STD prevention strategies are being developed.

Women's interest in vaginal microbicides. (6/2672)CONTEXT: Each year, an estimated 15 million new cases of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including HIV, occur in the United States. Women are not only at a disadvantage because of their biological and social susceptibility, but also because of the methods that are available for prevention. METHODS: A nationally representative sample of 1,000 women aged 18-44 in the continental United States who had had sex with a man in the last 12 months were interviewed by telephone. Analyses identified levels and predictors of women's worry about STDs and interest in vaginal microbicides, as well as their preferences regarding method characteristics. Numbers of potential U.S. microbicide users were estimated. RESULTS: An estimated 21.3 million U.S. women have some potential current interest in using a microbicidal product. Depending upon product specifications and cost, as many as 6.0 million women who are worried about getting an STD would be very interested in current use of a microbicide. These women are most likely to be unmarried and not cohabiting, of low income and less education, and black or Hispanic. They also are more likely to have visited a doctor for STD symptoms or to have reduced their sexual activity because of STDs, to have a partner who had had other partners in the past year, to have no steady partner or to have ever used condoms for STD prevention. CONCLUSIONS: A significant minority of women in the United States are worried about STDs and think they would use vaginal microbicides. The development, testing and marketing of such products should be expedited. (+info)
Risk of human immunodeficiency virus infection and genital ulcer disease among persons attending a sexually transmitted disease clinic in Italy. (7/2672)To assess the relative importance of ulcerative and non-ulcerative sexually transmitted disease in the transmission of HIV, a seroprevalence study was conducted on 2210 patients at the sexually transmitted diseases (STD) clinic of the S. Maria e S. Gallicano Hospital in Rome, between 1989 and 1994. Among male patients, by univariate analysis, strong predictors of HIV infection were homosexuality, sexual exposure to a HIV-positive partner, hepatitis B virus infection, and positive syphilis serology. An increased risk was estimated for patients with past genital herpes (odds ratio (OR) 3.86, 95% confidence intervals (CI) 0.40-18.2), and primary syphilis (OR 5.79, 95% CI 0.59-28.6). By multivariate analysis, a positive association was found with homosexuality (OR 6.9, 95% CI 2.9-16.5), and positive syphilis serology (OR 3.5, 95% CI 1.3-9.2). An adjusted OR of 2.41 was calculated for current and/or past genital herpes. These results, although not conclusive, suggest a role of ulcerative diseases as risk factors for prevalent HIV infection, and indicate that positive syphilis serology is an unbiased criterion for identifying individuals at increased risk of HIV infection.

Unrecognized sexually transmitted infections in rural South African women: a hidden epidemic. (8/2672)Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are of major public health concern in developing countries, not least because they facilitate transmission of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The present article presents estimates of the prevalence, on any given day, of STIs among women in rural South Africa and the proportion who are asymptomatic, symptomatic but not seeking care, and symptomatic and seeking care. The following data sources from Hlabisa district were used: clinical surveillance for STI syndromes treated in health facilities, microbiological studies among women attending antenatal and family planning clinics, and a community survey. Population census provided denominator data. Adequacy of drug treatment was determined through quality of care surveys. Of 55,974 women aged 15-49 years, a total of 13,943 (24.9%) were infected on any given day with at least one of Trichomonas vaginalis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Chlamydia trachomatis, or Treponema pallidum. Of the women investigated, 6697 (48%) were asymptomatic, 6994 (50%) were symptomatic but not seeking care, 238 (1.7%) were symptomatic and would seek care, and 14 (0.3%) were seeking care on that day. Only 9 of the 14 women (65%) were adequately treated. STIs remained untreated because either women were asymptomatic or the symptoms were not recognized and acted upon. Improved case management alone is therefore unlikely to have a major public health impact. Improving partner treatment and women's awareness of symptoms is essential, while the potential of mass STI treatment needs to be explored. (+info)

HIV and other STDs. Individuals who are infected with STDs are at least two to five times more likely than uninfected individuals to acquire HIV infection if they are exposed to the virus through sexual contact. In addition, if an HIV-infected individual is also infected with another STD, that person is more likely to transmit HIV through sexual contact than other HIV-infected persons.. STDs appear to increase susceptibility to HIV infection. Genital ulcers caused by diseases like syphilis or herpes create a portal of entry for HIV. Additionally, inflammation resulting from genital ulcers or non-ulcerative STDs, like chlamydia, gonorrhea, and trichomoniasis, increase the concentration of cells in genital secretions that can serve as targets for HIV.. STDs also appear to increase the risk of an HIV-infected person transmitting the virus to his or her sex partners. Studies have shown that HIV-infected individuals who are also infected with other STDs are particularly likely to shed HIV in their ...
Reducing Sexual Risk Behaviors and Improving Health for People at a Sexually Transmitted Infection Clinic - Tabular View -...
Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) can produce long-term health problems. They are often linked to HIV, which can also be sexually transmitted, because both occur in the same populations and because STIs and HIV interact biologically. Having an STI other than HIV can increase the risk of HIV acquisition and transmission as well as negatively impact HIV progression. The population of people who go to clinics specializing in STIs are particularly at risk of engaging in risky sexual behaviors and having poor health outcomes-like infection with an STI. This study will test the effectiveness of using an educational DVD to reduce incidence of risky sexual behaviors and STI acquisition, including risk of HIV, and to improve overall health.. Participation in this study will involve two phases. In Phase 1, participants will complete both computerized and paper surveys and watch an educational DVD. The educational DVD may include information on diet, physical activity, sleep, smoking, STIs, and ...

Ledge Light Health District - STD
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) or sexually transmitted infections (STIs) do not refer to any one disease but include more than 25 infectious organisms. STDs are caused by bacteria or viruses. STDs are spread from person to person by sexual intercourse, either anal, oral or vaginal. Some STDs, such as hepatitis B or HIV infection, are also transmitted through blood-to-blood contact, such as through the sharing of needles or equipment to inject drugs, body pierce or tattoo.. Many people are aware of the most prominent STD-HIV/AIDS. However, many other STDs affect millions of men and women each year. Many of these STDs initially cause no symptoms, especially in women. Symptoms, when they do develop, may be confused with those of other diseases that are not transmitted through sexual contact. STDs can still be transmitted person to person even if they do not show symptoms. Also, health problems caused by STDs tend to be more severe for women than for men.. ...

prevention Archives - Page 2 of 2 - SaferSex.Education | Brought to you by Lucky Bloke
The common perception of oral sex is that it is a risk-free sex act. This belief is most accepted among young adults and adolescents, many of whom engage in oral sex before other forms of intercourse as a deliberately risk-preventative measure. Indeed, while penis-in-vagina sex is often understood as potentially resulting in exposure to sexually transmitted infections and pregnancy, oral sex is mostly contextualized as wholly safe. This results in people of all ages being less cautious in their oral sex forays by not utilizing safer sex materials, thereby putting them at greater risk for STI transmission.. With that said, it is in fact true that oral sex is less risky than other sexual activities insofar as pregnancy and STI transmission. However, this doesnt mean that we should all be giving and receiving oral sex without appropriate safety measures. Unprotected oral sex can result in the contraction of a number of sexually transmitted infections, and while there has yet to be research ...

Types of STDs
STDs are sexually transmitted diseases, also known as STIs, sexually transmitted infections, which are passed on by sexual activity via unprotected intercourse (sex) in the vagina, anus, or from oral sex. STDs can be passed from sexual partner to sexual partner through both homosexual and heterosexual sex.. There are numerous types of STDs - you will find a brief description of the most common STD signs and STD symptoms in this guide - to answer your questions "what are STDs and how do they affect me?". If you suddenly find that you have unusual symptoms that make you think that you might have an STD, or sexually transmitted disease, you will most likely be quite concerned, and wondering what to do. STD symptoms can be embarrassing, yet they must be addressed and treated to prevent further damage or further spreading of infection to other sexual partners.. ...

Consultations for sexually transmitted infections in the general practice in the Netherlands: an opportunity to improve STI/HIV...
This study observed that GPs in the Dutch sentinel GP network reported an STI consultation for 1 per 250 patients in their practice per year, with higher rates for ages 15-29: 1 in 65 for women and 1 in 110 for men. The GPs requested one or more laboratory tests in the majority of these consultations and diagnosed an STI in about one-third of them. Test requests were quite selective, usually limited to one or two STIs, also for higher risk groups, such as MSM. The implementation of GP guidelines which recommend testing for multiple STIs in specific high-risk groups were poorly adhered to, varying from 15% to 75%, depending on the high-risk group involved. This suggests that GPs might need to engage in less restrictive testing to optimise the efficiency of STI control in primary care.. A limitation of the survey is uncertainty regarding completeness of the data. Owing to lack of time, questionnaires may not have been filled for all STI consultations, and selection bias could have occurred, if STI ...

Circumcision and Risk of Sexually Transmissible Infections in a Community‐Based Cohort of HIV‐Negative Homosexual Men in Sydney...
Circumcision status was examined as an independent risk factor for sexually transmissible infections (STIs) in the Health in Men cohort of homosexual men in Sydney.From 2001 through 2004, 1427 initially human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-negative men were enrolled and followed up until mid-2007. All participants were offered annual STI testing. The history of STIs was collected at baseline, and information on sexual risk behaviors was collected every 6 months. At annual face-to-face visits, participants reported STI diagnoses received during the previous year.Circumcision was not associated with prevalent or incident herpes simplex virus 1, herpes simplex virus 2, or self-reported genital warts. There was also no independent association of circumcision with incident urethral gonorrhea or chlamydia. Being circumcised was associated with a significantly reduced risk of incident (hazard ratio, 0.35 [95% confidence interval, 0.15-0.84]) but not prevalent (odds ratio, 0.71 [95% confidence interval, ...

Do condoms provide 100% protection from HIV?
Condoms are not 100% effective at preventing HIV transmission. When used correctly and consistently, condoms are highly effective and reliable in reducing the risk of transmitting HIV and most sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Condoms should be used EVERY TIME during sex when transmission of HIV (or other STDs) is possible. When condoms fail to work properly, it is most often because of improper and/or inconsistent use.. Condoms may not work as well against STDs spread through skin-to-skin touching, like herpes and genital warts, because condoms may not cover the infected areas.. Following these basic rules will reduce the already small chance of condom failure: - Experiment with different condoms and practice putting them on before intercourse. - Practice talking with your partner about your desire and intention to use condoms. - Use latex (rubber) or polyurethane (plastic) condoms. Avoid "natural skin" condoms, which have tiny holes, which may allow HIV and other STDs to be transmitted. - ...

A study on delay in seeking medical care,partner notification and underlying determinants among male STD patients--《Journal...
Objective To understand delay in seeing medical care,partner notification and underlying determinants among male STD patients Methods Cross-sectional studies of first male visitors were performed in 4 STD clinics Results Among 406 cases under the study,80% felt stigmatized due to STDs,28% visited a doctor in less than 1 week after the onset of symptoms and 40% persisted in sex activities even though they felt some symptoms No visible relation was seen between stigma and delay in seeking medical care 77% of the married patients were reluctant to notify STI to their wives,and those who were feeling stigmatized were more reulctant to do so(OR=0 44,95%CI:0 21-0 85) Conclusions Preventive measures including health counseling should be taken so as to reduce patients stigmatization,raise the rate of timely seeking medical care and encourage STD patients to notify their spouses
Recreational drugs and STI diagnoses among patients attending an STI/HIV reference clinic in Rome, Italy | Sexually Transmitted...
Results Overall, 703 patients participated, with men who have sex with men (MSM) accounting for 50.4% of the total and 73.2% of HIV-positive patients. Apart from condylomatosis, whose prevalence was higher among females (38.8%) and non-MSM (45.8%) than MSM (14.4%), STIs were more frequent among MSM, particularly syphilis (14.1%), gonorrhoea (4.8%), urethritis (3.4%) and hepatitis A (6.5%). Recreational drug use was significantly more frequent among MSM (39.8% vs 17.6% in females and 22.7% in non-MSM). A total of 26.3% of MSM used at least one of the nine drugs and 5.1% at least one of the three chems. Cocaine (13.3%) and poppers (13.0%) were the most used sex drugs in MSM.. The use of any of the nine drugs was associated with being MSM (adjusted OR (AOR): 1.94, 95% CI 1.05 to 3.58), sex with partner contacted online (1.99, 95% CI 1.14 to 3.45), group sex (4.08, 95% CI 2.40 to 6.93) and STI in the last year (1.65, 95% CI 1.05 to 2.61). Use of any of the nine chems among MSM was associated with ...
Towards condom skills: a cross-sectional study of the association between condom proficiency, condom problems and STI risk...
For the first time in the UK, this study found significant associations linking measures of condom problems to STI risk amongst MSM. Although condom errors and other problems have been increasingly recognised as a likely factor in reducing condom effectiveness  and the correlates of condom problems in men have been explored [7, 17], biological end point evidence of an association with STI acquisition is scarce in all groups and absent in MSM. An association between condom problems and incident chlamydial and gonococcal infections was shown in a small subsample (21 infections in 130 individuals) of the large Project Respect intervention trial . In a study of 1973 consistent condom users, condom errors were reported much less frequently by MSM than men who have sex with women and an association between condom problems and prevalent STI was seen in heterosexual but not homosexual subjects . We found strong univariate associations between condom proficiency and problem scores and ...
An evaluation of the effectiveness of training in syndromic management of sexually transmitted diseases
This study is about evaluating the effectiveness of training in syndromic management ofSTDs. The purpose of this study was to fmd out to what extent the STD training programme had been implemented. A stratified sample of twenty-two primary health care clinics in the Port Shepstone region was used. Twenty-two professional nurses rendering STD management in the clinics were observed. Data-gathering was done through a clinic inventory obtained by interviewing the sister-incharge, observation of professional nurses providing treatment to STD patients, interviews with professional nurses to assess their knowledge of the syndromic approach, and exit interviews with patients treated at the clinic. The fmdings suggest that certain areas in the STD training need to be emphasized, such as vaginal speculum and bi-manual examinations. It is recommended that certain negative aspects which hinder effective STD management, like staff shortages and lack of equipment be given attention ...
Objectives: Accessible health services are a key element of effective human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and sexually transmitted infection (STI) control. This study aimed to examine whether there were any differences in accessing sexual health services between Medicare‐eligible and Medicare‐ineligible men who have sex with men (MSM) in Melbourne, Australia..

If you need treatment, this will be discussed with you. If you have an STI, your partner (and recent previous partners) will need to be tested and, if necessary, treated to prevent the infection being passed to anyone else. Staff at the sexual health clinic will be able to advise you about which of your sexual partners will need to be contacted, and may be able to contact them on your behalf. If you wish, your anonymity will be protected when contacting your previous sexual partners. Read more information about visiting a sexual health clinic.. ...
kenya's first lady: abstain, don't use condoms, page 1
The transmission level of AIDS, when a condom is used, is VERY VERY VERY low. A condom is VERY effective at stopping the AIDS virus from being transmitted. Other STDs are capable of being transmitted through a condom, however, the transmission rate of ALL STDs is HIGHLY reduced by the use of a condom. NOTHING is 100% effective, if youre active, but condoms DO significantly cut your risk to an almost miniscule chance of transmission. Abstinance IS the best way to stop the transmission of STDs, but with proper use, and care, condoms are HIGHLY effective ...
HIV Screening Rates among Medicaid Enrollees Diagnosed with Other Sexually Transmitted Infections | fsu.digital.flvc.org
Introduction Approximately 20 million new sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are diagnosed yearly in the United States costing the healthcare system an estimated $16 billion in direct medical expenses. The presence of other STIs increases the risk of HIV transmission. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has long recommended routine HIV screening for individuals with a diagnosed STI. Unfortunately, HIV screening prevalence among STI diagnosed patients are still sub-optimal in many healthcare settings. Objective To determine the proportion of STI-diagnosed persons in the Medicaid population who are screened for HIV, examine correlates of HIV screening, and to suggest critical intervention points to increase HIV screening in this population. Methods A retrospective database analysis was conducted to examine the prevalence and correlates of HIV screening among participants. Participant eligibility was restricted to Medicaid enrollees in 29 states with a primary STI diagnosis ...

Sexually Transmitted Diseases/Infections (STDs) | Health & Senior Services
STDs/STIs infect the mouth, genital and anal areas of the body. Although some STDs/STIs can also be spread through sexual skin-to-skin contact, STDs/STIs are spread mainly through oral, vaginal, or anal sex with an infected partner. Some STDs/STIs can also be spread from an infected mother to her child during the birthing process.. STDs/STIs are either viral or bacterial. A viral infection is caused by a virus and cannot be cured. However, although a virus will remain in the body for life, symptoms of the virus might not be present at all times. A bacterial infection is caused by a bacterial organism, and the active infection can be cured. The infection must be treated early, however, to ensure that the damage it caused to the body can be repaired. Whether an infection is viral or bacterial, the infection can have long-term effects on the body, such as infertility or sterility, and can leave the body vulnerable to more serious diseases, such as HIV. Ultimately, untreated STDs/STIs can affect ...
What Your OB-GYN Wishes You Knew | HealthCentral
Theres no doubt that condom use is crucial in reducing the risk of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). But using condoms doesnt 100 percent guarantee that you will never get any STD.. "People think condoms will protect against everything, but they do not," Dr. Iglesia said. "They dont necessarily protect against herpes, and condoms can break.". According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, condoms are likely to be more effective at preventing transmission of some STDs than others. For example, some STDs, such as gonorrhea, chlamydia, and HIV, can only be passed through genital fluids, so youre likely to have greater protection against these when using a condom. Other STDs, however, like herpes, human papillomavirus, and syphilis, are transmitted by skin-to-skin contact that may occur even when you use a condom.. Additionally, Dr. Iglesia noted, people may not realize that oral sex can put you at risk of STDs, too.. "You can get ...

What Causes Thick-White-Discharge? 5 Possible Conditions
A sexually transmitted disease, such as trichomoniasis, chlamydia or gonorrhea may also cause thicker discharge.. Trichomoniasis is also a type of infection, but is caused by a protozoan, or a single-cell organism. This STD is spread through sexual contact, but it can also be contracted through the sharing of bathing suits or towels. Typically, trichomoniasis produces a green or yellow discharge with a foul odor, but the yellow color may be so light that the discharge appears white. Common symptoms of this STD include inflammation, pain and itching.. Chlamydia and gonorrhea are two other STDs that can also cause abnormal discharge. In this case, the discharge is usually green, yellow or cloudy. However, even if youre seeing clear vaginal discharge, these two STDs may still be the cause.. If you suspect that you may have one of these STDs, its important to see your doctor right away. Your physician will be able to properly diagnose your condition and prescribe an appropriate treatment. All ...

HIV AIDS and STD Prevention: The FemCap and Microbicides
Treating curable sexually transmitted infections to prevent HIV in Africa; still an effective control strategy?
BACKGROUND: Evidence regarding the effectiveness of sexually transmitted infection (STI) treatment for HIV prevention in Africa is equivocal, leading some policy makers to question whether it should continue to be promoted for HIV control. We explore whether treating curable STIs remains a cost-effective HIV control strategy in Africa. METHODS: The model STDSIM was fitted to the characteristics of 4 populations in East and West Africa. Over the simulated HIV epidemics, the population-attributable fractions (PAFs) of incident HIV attributable to STIs, the impact of syndromic STI management on HIV incidence, and the cost per HIV infection averted were evaluated and compared with an estimate of lifetime HIV treatment costs (US $3500). RESULTS: Throughout the HIV epidemics in all cities, the total PAF for. all STIs remained high, with , or = 50% of HIV transmission attributed to STIs. The PAF for herpes simplex virus type 2 increased during the epidemics, whereas the PAF for curable STIs and the ...

Teens with sexually transmitted diseases by race/ethnicity | KIDS COUNT Data Center
|div|Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are a widespread issue among youth. An estimated 19 million new infections occur each year and almost half of them occur in adolescents and young people. While some infections display signs, most STDs can be silent, displaying no symptoms and can be diagnosed only through testing. Despite the common nature of STDs, testing for these infections is not widespread, leaving many infections undetected and undiagnosed. The social stigma, lack of public awareness and inadequate education about STDs can severely inhibit discussions about risks, symptoms, transmission and the need for regular testing. As a result of the extensive number of STD cases and lack of public awareness, STDs remain a major public health challenge. |br /| |/div|
