  • Of the 8 common infections, 4 are currently curable: syphilis, gonorrhoea, chlamydia and trichomoniasis. The other four are viral infections and are incurable, but can be mitigated or modulated through treatment: hepatitis B, herpes, HIV, and Human Papilloma Virus (HPV).
  • Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are caused by more than 30 different bacteria, viruses and parasites and are spread predominantly by sexual contact, including vaginal, anal and oral sex.
  • STIs may also be spread through:
  1. skin-to-skin sexual contact,
  2. blood products & tissue transfer and
  3. Mother to child during pregnancy and childbirth.
  • Common symptoms of STIs include vaginal discharge, urethral discharge in men, genital ulcers, and abdominal pain.
  • The majority of STIs are present without symptoms, so those affected do not know. This is why the preferable term is STIs and not sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
  • As you read this:
  1. More than 1 million people would acquire a sexually transmitted infection today.
  2. An estimated 500 million people would acquire one of four sexually transmitted infections (chlamydia, gonorrhoea, syphilis and trichomoniasis) this year.
  3. More than 530 million people are living with Herpes simplex virus 2 (HSV2).
  4. More than 290 million women have a Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) infection, one of the most common STIs. "Get screened today."

 

  • HPV infection causes 530, 000 cases of cervical cancer and 275, 000 cervical cancer deaths each year.
  • Some STIs can increase the risk of HIV acquisition three-fold or more.
  • HSV2 commonly causes genital herpes, spreads through sexual contact and skin-to-skin contact. HSV2 is very common and highly contagious, whether or not you have an open sore. Women and people with multiple sexual partners are at an increased risk.
  • Condoms are 97% effective. If used correctly and consistently, it can protect against most STIs. Condoms are the only form of contraception that can prevent STIs.

So next time you are about to have a quickie, remember all these and how effective a condom is !!! (if you aint married)

Happiness is all i see now I never thought that I will be cured from HERPES virus again. I have been suffering from a deadly disease (HERPES) for the past 3 years now, I had spent a lot of money going from one places to another, from churches to churches, hospitals have been my home every day residence. Constant checks up have been my hobby not until this faithful day, I was searching through the internet, I saw a testimony on how DR CLIMENT helped someone in curing his HERPES disease, quickly I copied his email which is drclimentscott just to give him a test I spoke to him, he asked me to do some certain things which I did, he told me that he is going to provide the herbal cure to me, which he did, then he asked me to go for medical checkup after some days after using the herbal cure, behold I was free from the deadly disease, he only asked me to post the testimony through the whole world, faithfully am doing it now, please brothers and sisters, he is great, I owe him in return. if you are having a similar problem just email him on ( Thank you and God bless you Doc climent Scott. drclimentscott@gmail.com drclimentscott@gmail.com contact him on his whats-app number here +2347036879479 +2347036879479.
