Sexually Transmitted Diseases
STDs (Sexually Transmitted Diseases) are diseases that are transmitted through sexual intercourse with another domestic partner. Usually STD’s are transmitted through oral, anal, vaginal, or other sexually active bodily contact. Sexually Transmitted Diseases are 100% avoidable. There are many techniques, but the most effective way is to have sexual intercourse with only one partner in your whole life, making sure that your partner didn’t have sexual involvements with anyone else. Another method is a condom. A condom fits over the male erect penis, to protect both partners of any diseases that may possibly exist. It is also vital to buy the right kind of condom. Some condoms are porous, which means bacteria can travel through the holes as well as sperm. A good condom would be one with a small latex tip to avoid breaking of the condom. Overall, latex condoms are good ways to prevent STD’s and pregnancy, but they do break, so it’s not 100% guaranteed to prevent pregnancy or disease. There are many methods out there, but the most effective method is to have sexual intercourse with one partner.

Who thought that sex would be easy? It’s not. Nowadays we have tons of diseases, which are fatal. Only some of them are curable, and some can be slowed down. But all of them can be prevented. The most common sexually transmitted diseases are: Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Syphilis, Herpes(Simplex II), NGU(Nongonicoccal Urethritis), Vaginitis, Genital Warts, Pubic Lice/Scabies, AIDS, and Hepatitis.

Chlamydia is a disease, which is transmitted through unprotected sexual intercourse. If you had this disease, you would experience bleeding between menstrual periods, abdominal pain, and painful urination. There is another term for painful urination. It is called “urinary tract infection”. This group includes Cystitis’s or Urethritis caused by Gonorrhea or…...

Reducing Teenage Pregnancies and STDs through Education

...Reducing Teenage Pregnancies and STDs through Education An Investigation into the increasing number of teenage pregnancies and STDs in the United States Christene M. Staley Western Governor’s University WGU Student ID# 000259544 Why do we need sexual education? In recent years there has been a large debate on how to reduce the number of teenage pregnancies and STDs in the United States. Although many agree that some form of sexual education is needed there are many opinions on what should be taught in schools and at what age. One approach is teaching abstinence only programs compared with teaching young adolescence about sex and contraceptives use and the risks associated with being sexually active. We compare the United States that currently has both the highest teenage pregnancies and STDs among young adolescence compared to other industrialized countries. This examination will show what methods of sexual education has been proven to work and why. Additionally we will examine why other countries have greatly reduced teenage pregnancies and what they are doing that has been effective. There is a significant impact on society and its costing our nation as well as the children of the teenager mothers. (Manlove et al., 2002). The first thing we need to look at is educating teenagers in order to reduce teen pregnancies and STDs. Second we will look at the need to being the discussion of sex at home and educate our children starting as......

Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) are caused by infections that are passed from one person to another during sexual contact. STDs are commonly referred to as sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in medical practice. Infections do not show any symptoms and diseases are caused by symptoms. There are numerous types of STDs and STIs. Planned Parenthood reports that more than 50% of people in the U.S. will get an STD at some point in their lives. Risk can be reduced by testing and practicing safe sex. Common Misconceptions If you go to the doctor regularly, the doctor will tell you if you have an STD. False. Many regular annual checkups do not include STD testing. You can get an STD from sitting on a toilet seat. False. The viruses/bacteria that cause STDS cannot survive outside the human body for a long period of time, so becoming infected from a toilet seat is not likely. You can only get STDs, like herpes, if your partner is having an outbreak. False. Herpes does not always have symptoms and outbreaks are not always visible. That does not mean you cannot contract the disease. STDs are only......

...Intra-generational equity is concerned with equity between people of the same generation. This is separate from inter-generational equity, which is about equity between present and future generations. Intra-generational equity includes considerations of distribution of resources and justice between nations. It also includes considerations of what is fair for people within any one nation. Inter-generational equity in economic, psychological, and sociological contexts, is the concept or idea of fairness or justice in relationships between children, youth, adults and seniors, particularly in terms of treatment and interactions. It has been studied in environmental and sociological settings. Besides, Inter-generational equity has to do with fairness between current and future members of a community. It doesn't mean that we neglect our current needs, but that we try to achieve a reasonable balance between satisfying our needs now and setting aside enough to provide for needs of the future. We are currently living unsustainable lives. If we are not careful how we use and dispose of resources, our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren will have a poorer, more polluted world to live in. Aiming for inter-generational equity means we want to give equal consideration to our own immediate needs, our own future needs, and our children's and grandchildren's future needs. Whereas, intra-generational equity is also used in connection with the idea that all people throughout the...

...of minor consequence, while others are huge and potentially life changing. Decision making is a very personal business, freedom of choice is a wonderful thing and I support it but I believe choices should be made after carefully weighing benefits and risks. And this is how I bring up the theme on Birth control. Birth control, is designed to prevent pregnancy. Your choice of birth control should depend on several factors. These include your health, frequency of sexual activity, number of sexual partners and desire to have children in the future. Whether you are male or female, your life can suddenly be changed forever by pregnancy or a sexually transmitted disease (STD). Think for a moment what this would be like for you. To protect yourself and your future, many people think ahead about birth control methods and STD protection. You should never have sex without protection. When considering into starring doing birth control you need to start taking charge of your health and your future. Even if you plan not to have sex until you're older, take a little time to learn and decide about which birth control methods are available. It may not be easy to talk about sexual activity and birth control, but it is important that you know how to practice safe sex. Hopefully, you have a parent, or someone you trust to provide you with advice, or health professional that you feel comfortable talking to. Some teenage girls are worried about visiting a health professional for birth control.......

Std(Sexually Transmitted Disease)

...can be a horrific consequence if one fails to be cautious. It can result in sexually transmitted diseases. These diseases can kill any person who is sexually active. One needs to know that there is a possibility of receiving an STD. There are chances in which they can be cured but for some, it isn’t an option. An alternative may be to slow it down, but it will remain inside of you gradually weakening the immune system. It is all caused from sexual activity with one that previously acquires a sexually transmitted disease. An STD is vastly transmittable, but 100% avoidable. Sexual intercourse may seem entirely harmless, however the escalating number of those with sexually transmitted diseases confirm that what may appear to be safe can be exactly the opposite. The expression sexually transmitted disease is used to define over twenty-five to thirty infectious organisms that move from one person to another through skin-to-skin contact or the exchange of bodily fluids in the oral, anal and genital areas during sexual activity. It can also be spread through drug users who share their equipment where it would go straight to their blood stream. In addition, pregnant women who already obtain an STD can transfer it to their children through breast feeding. STDs come in the forms of a virus, bacteria, and parasites which can escalate to major health issues such as infertility, permanent brain damage, heart disease, cancer, and death. These diseases can affect both men and women, but......

Std : Drug Resistant

...Drug-resistant STD rates could rise, without stronger treatment available A common sexually transmitted disease may be becoming more drug-resistant leaving doctors without an option to cure it in the future.  According to Time magazine, the rates of gonorrhea in cities where more people have the drug-resistant strains of the STD, the number of cases of the higher-resistant strain is, unsurprisingly, more prevalent than in other areas.    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report there were approximately 820,000 cases of gonorrhea treated in the United States each year.  But despite the stronger strains, the number of cases overall has decreased since the 1970s.   The stronger strains were first found in the United States, in Hawaii and California in the late 1990s/early 2000s, and became increasingly prevalent in the country throughout the 2000s.  By late 2000s, the CDC adjusted treatment, no longer using ciprofloxacin or other fluroquinolones for treatment, leaving only one drug combination to treat it.  That treatment is an injection of cephalosporin combined with either azithromycin or doxycycline orally.  The combination treatment, according to The Verge, may not be substantial enough to treat the increasingly stronger disease in the near future.

Stds Chlamidia, Scabies, Hepatitis B

...Momma Mp4b Biology Mrs. Lamers 13 – 10 – 10 Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), also known as sexually transmitted infections (STIs), are diseases or infections, which have a high chance of being transmitted via sexual contact and sexual behaviour. These diseases are often caused by pathogen such as bacteria, viruses and parasites. Unfortunately, in 2010 sexually transmitted diseases have become very common. This is undoubtedly because increasingly more people are having enjoyable, but sometimes risky, sex lives- often with several sex partners. Chlamydia is a type of bacterial disease. It is caused by the Chlamydia trachomatis, a bacterium only found in the human body. Hepatitis B is an example of a viral infection and is caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV). If caught, the infection can usually be fought off naturally by the immune system. However, if this fails the liver becomes infected. The liver, being an essential organ, becomes inflamed and cannot carry out its functions correctly. Scabies is a form of a parasitic disease. It is caused by mites who burrow into the skin. These mites are smaller than half a millimetre and cannot be seen to the naked eye. They can however, be seen under a magnifying glass or microscope (figure 1). Chlamydia is usually caught when contacted sexually, including as little as sharing bed sheets or clothing. This is much like all other STDs including hepatitis B and scabies. Hepatitis B is transmitted through body fluids,...

Std Study

...Topic STD (Sexual Transmitted Disease) In the United States alone, an estimated 19 million new STDs infections occur each year. Most people remain unaware of the risks and consequences of Stud’s. Some of the common known STDs are Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Genital Herpes, Genital HPV Infection, Syphilis and Trichomoniasis and Viral Hepatitis. Gonorrhea and Chlamydia have the highest transmittal STDs in Americans between the ages of 15 and 24 years of age. The reason it is on a rise is because some of these young Americans don’t think it can happen to them. Most of these young people aren’t being told how serious STDs are. Some STDs don’t have any symptoms, especially in women. When symptoms develop, the virus has already been in the body for a while. Health problems for women with an STD tend to be more severe than for men. Chlamydia that is transmitted in men is usually by anal or oral sex with someone who is infected. Some symptoms in men are pain while urinating, penile discharge and swollen testicles. Practicing safe sex is crucial for the prevention of an STD infection. STDs pose a serious and widespread health threat in the United States. People that have STDs are at least five times more likely to become infected with HIV. The diseases don’t discriminate. They affected people of all races, ages and sexual orientation. Women who are pregnant can pass STDs to their babies. The harmful effects of STDs in babies may include still birth or low birth......

Safe Sex: Stop Stds and Unplanned Pregnancy

...Safe Sex: Stop STDs and Unplanned Pregnancy  Practicing safe sex to reduce the risks of getting sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)  and unplanned pregnancy should be on the minds of people who are sexually active. According  to Mayo Clinic Staff, “T​ he organisms that cause sexually transmitted diseases may pass from  person to person in blood, semen, or vaginal and other bodily fluids,” (“STDs” 1). ​ Some STDs  can be non­sexually transmitted during childbirth or pregnancy. Blood transfusions or shared  needles can also transmit STDs. In fact, it’s possible to acquire STDs from people who appear  to be healthy because STDs don’t cause symptoms in many people. The common STDs are  chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes, HIV/AIDs, HPV (Human Papillomavirus), and syphilis (Most  Common STDs, 1). Unplanned pregnancy is getting pregnant without planning it.  Who wants to  catch an STD or increase the chances of an unplanned pregnancy? If both parties say no, then  it’s up to the individual to take responsibility to prevent it from happening. Safe sex should be  practiced to reduce the risk of getting STDs and the risk of an unplanned pregnancy.  Chlamydia is a bacterial infection that is the most commonly reported STD in the United  States. It is usually transmitted via vaginal or anal sex, but it can also be transmitted from oral  sex. Approximately 50% of men and 25% of women have symptoms from this infection. The  symptoms are pain or burning sensation when urinating...

...transmitted diseases are also known as Stds. Stds are infections that are transferred from one person to another through sexual contact. Stds can be transmitted during vaginal anal or oral sex. They can also be transmitted from an infected mother to her baby during pregnancy or childbirth. In the reading of the article I have discovered that there are more than thirty different sexually transmissible bacteria, viruses and parasites. If patients are diagnosed with a certain type of STD the physician is required to report the certain STD to the state health departments. Many states that discover or find an STD report the newly diagnosed cases so that the public can be aware of the problem. I dint know this but STD are a major public health challenging the United States. The major health center like the (CDC) center for disease control and prevention estimates that there are approximately nineteen million STD infections each year. This infections alone can cost the health care about sixteen point four billion dollars per year that just a lot, with all that money we can do so many things like get California out of depth but seriously if people would take care of themselves and be safe those individuals won’t have to suffer the consequences of an STD. The article really doesn’t talk about a globally perspective but it does for a national perspective. I’m pretty sure other countries have their measures for treating and preventing these types of STDS. Nationally it’s a major......

Std When Will It End?

...What is an STD? An STD is an abbreviation for sexually transmitted diseases. What does this mean? STD's are diseases that are transmitted sexually and can attack reproductive organs, pubic hair and bends & folds in the skin. There are two in my mind that pose the greatest danger to teens: AIDS and Genital warts. Genital warts can ruin a person’s   social life and so can AIDS but AIDS can also kill. Unfortunately, STD’s have become common among teens to an alarming rate. With two thirds of the STD infected population being under the age of 25, high school and college students must learn the dangers and effects of Sexually Transmitted Diseases. STD’s are terrible and no one should experience such discomfort. Re-arranged As I mentioned earlier, STD’s stands for sexually transmitted diseases. They are infectious diseases in which they spread from person to person through intimate (sexual) contact. As many already know, the most common and most famous is the Human Immunodeficiency Virus, better known as HIV; it cause s the Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS). The sole purpose of HIV is attacking the immune system and killing the natural protection against diseases, leaving the person vulnerable to any infection or diseases. What always intrigues me is how the HIV generated? Could it be a virus that we already have, and it activates in a certain way? One day, I will find an answer to these questions someday along with a cure. In Japan a school organizes two......
