The level of danger of STD you should not underestimate
STD is a term used to refer to diseases that can affect an entire society due to their ability to spread quickly and dangerously. Sexually transmitted diseases are mainly transmitted through unprotected sex. Other diseases can be transmitted through blood, from mother to child, or through indirect contact.
This is a group of diseases that cause many dangerous health effects to patients and threaten the community such as:
- Impaired reproductive function: Unprotected sex has many potential pathogens that affect reproductive function. Both men and women are likely to have the associated disease.
- The patient’s psychology is prone to crisis: If diagnosed positive for one of the STDs, the patient is very likely to fall into crisis and stress. Because there were no symptoms of disease before the test, the patient was surprised, did not know how to face the disease and was afraid of worrying about relatives.
- Pregnant women face many negative impacts: Pregnant women with STDs are at high risk of having a miscarriage, infecting the fetus, giving birth prematurely, having an ectopic pregnancy, etc. If they can develop normally, there is still a high risk of birth defects.
- Spread and endanger the community: STDs have a fast rate of spreading to the community. Many diseases are also life-threatening.
Who is at risk of STD?
Since STDs are sexually transmitted diseases, anyone who has had sex is at risk. Subjects at higher risk of STDs include:
- People who have unprotected sex
- People with many lovers
- Prostitutes, prostitutes
- People who use drugs, especially those who share needles
- People who have sex with men (male – male)
- Patients receive blood from people with STDs
- Newborns whose pregnant mothers have the disease
- People sharing personal items with sick people: toothbrushes, underwear, syringes, razors, etc.
According to recent statistics, adolescents and young adults between the ages of 15 and 25 are at a high risk of contracting sexually transmitted infections. Women are particularly vulnerable to these infections, with a higher risk than men. This is especially true for young women who engage in frequent and rough sex, which can damage the vaginal mucosa and make it easier for infectious agents to enter the body.
What should be done to prevent the transmission of STD?
Most sexually transmitted diseases are difficult to detect based on clinical symptoms alone. STDs can be detected through medical testing and examination at a healthcare facility. Delayed disease detection not only makes the disease difficult to treat, but also increases the likelihood of spreading to other people. Therefore, it is important to seek medical attention and get tested if you suspect you have been exposed to an STD.
Besides wondering who is at risk of contracting a STD, you also need to know some measures to prevent the spread of this disease:
- Building a healthy sex life, faithful monogamy.
- Use condoms during sex to prevent infection.
- Clean genitals before and after sex.
- Both should be tested for STDs before having sex to make sure that both of them are healthy.
- Talk to your partner about prevention of STDs and pregnancy. If you think you’re ready, you need to take steps to protect your body.
- Periodic health check-up 1-2 times/year to detect disease early. Especially, women need to have regular gynecological examinations, detect infections and be advised by doctors about safe contraceptive methods.
The article above has clarified who is at risk of STDs. This information will hopefully help you understand what to do if you suspect you have been infected. Furthermore, it is important for you and your community to educate yourselves about sexually transmitted diseases in order to protect yourselves and your loved ones.
