This book describes Sexually Transmitted Infections, Diagnosis and Treatment and Related Diseases
This is an updated version of my guide to sexually transmitted diseases first written in 2012.
There are new diseases and associated conditions included in this new version.
More and more people are using the term sexually transmitted infection as a more up to date term.
This is because a person can have an infection which does not turn into the disease.
The sexually transmitted infections are an important topic for many young people and adults to be informed about especially in this age of young people maturing very early.
In this new permissive society, early age at first sexual intercourse is linked with:
1. Having more sexual partners,
2. First sex with a new or casual partner,
3. Inconsistent contraceptive use,
4. Sex under the influence of alcohol and drugs, and substance use
The exposure to pornography has been shown to be significantly linked with sexually permissive attitudes, with stronger interest for Internet pornography than for more traditional types of pornography consumption.
The internet has caused an explosion of interest in all things sexual including adult films, books and graphic novels.
The more frequent exposure to sexually explicit Internet material is linked with:
1. More positive attitudes toward uncommitted sexual exploration and abuse,
2. Sexual relations with casual partners/friends or with sexual partners in one-night stands,
3. Sexually permissive attitudes,
4. Positive attitudes toward sex,
5. Sexually permissive attitudes, and
6. An expansive sexuality such as more positive attitudes toward oral and anal sex
All these liberal attitudes towards sex can lead to an increased number of sexually transmitted infections which can go on to become an epidemic.
Sexually transmitted infections can cause long-term health disorders, mostly in women and infants.
1. Pelvic inflammatory disease,
3. Cervical cancer, and
4. Perinatal or congenital infections in infants born to infected mothers
All these augur badly for the future!
The term sexually transmitted disease (STD) is used to refer to a condition passed from one person to another through sexual contact.
A person can contract an STI by having unprotected vaginal, anal, or oral sex with someone who has the STI.
That does not mean sex is the only way STIs are transmitted.
Depending on the specific STI, infections may also be transmitted through sharing needles and breastfeeding
Sexually transmitted infections can be caused by:
1.Bacteria such as gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis
2.Viral infection such as HIV, herpes, human papilloma virus
3.Parasites such as trichomonas, lice
Sexually transmitted infection is spread by infected people through contact with the penis, vagina, mouth or anus.
They can grow and develop easily in the warm, moist areas of the reproductive tract and cause infertility, cancer and congenital disorders.
Many STIs are curable whiles others like HIV are not.
