Did we mention that this means there are THREE untreatable STDs?
If TWO untreatable sexual superbugs weren’t enough, we’re now seeing several strains of drug-resistant Gonorrhea, too.
And that one is being spread by Oral Sex. In fact, Oral Sex is part of the reason it’s becoming Drug-resistant.
The sexually transmitted bacteria can live at the back of the throat and, because of this, is frequently exposed to antibiotics used to treat throat infections.
Repeated exposure to antibiotics makes it easier for bacteria to evolve drug resistance.
‘When you use antibiotics to treat infections like a normal sore throat, this mixes with the Neisseria species [gonorrhoea bacteria] in your throat and this results in resistance,’ Dr Wi told the BBC. — Read More
It’s a growing problem in America, too.
In United States, drug-resistant gonorrhea is a public health problem of national concern. But untreatable gonorrhea isn’t the only STD that has health officials worried.
Earlier this week, the World Health Organization released new treatment guidelines for three common sexually transmitted diseases — chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis— in response to increasing antibiotic resistance.
Gonorrhea has developed the strongest resistance to drugs, but the worries about untreatable syphilis and chlamydia come at a time when rates for the three STDs are rising rapidly in the U.S, especially among young people ages 20 to 24. According to data published by the CDC in 2014, the most recent year available: cases of chlamydia have increased 2.5 percent; gonorrhea 5.1 percent; and syphilis 15.1 percent. This is the first increase in the United States since 2006.
“STDs are hidden epidemics of enormous health and economic consequence in the United States,” according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
In the US, STDs are most frequent among college-age women, the highest prevalence being among women, ages 20 to 24.
According to the CDC, there are about 820,000 new gonorrhea infections each year in the United States. In fact, gonorrhea is the second most commonly reported infectious disease, after chlamydia. –Read More
You’d think that if Feminists care so much about women’s health, they might be encouraging a lifestyle among women that is LESS sexually reckless, and to have fewer sexual partners, rather than being MORE sexually reckless and having more abortions.
Suddenly that ‘abstinence’ aspect of Sex Ed doesn’t look so stupid and backward, does it?
Especially considering that the possible outcomes of some of these diseases include infertility, miscarriage, birth defects, and (in the case of syphilis) internal bleeding, seizures, dementia and death.
That said, STDs are preventable and there are steps you can take to keep yourself and your partner healthy. Remember that protecting your health is your responsibility:
Condoms: Use them correctly every time you have sex.
Have fewer partners: Ideally, agree to only have sex with one person who agrees to only have sex with you.
Talk with your partner: Talk with your sex partner about STDs and staying safe before having sex.
Get tested: Make sure you both get tested to know for sure that neither of you has an STD.
Get vaccinated: Safe and highly effective vaccines are available for two STDs: hepatitis B and HPV. HPV is in fact the most common STD. There are specific recommendations for routine and catch up vaccinations for these two STDs.
This is why you need to make sure that you’re raising your girl to be righteous and rowdy in a good way:
ClashDaily.com’s, Editor-In-Chief, Doug Giles how-to book:
It has been said that daughters are God’s revenge on fathers for the kind of men they were when they were young. Some would say that both Doug Giles and I, given our infamous pasts, are charter members of that club. However, Doug and I know that his two wonderful daughters and my equally wonderful daughter and two granddaughters are truly God’s fantastic gift. With the wisdom of hindsight and experience Doug has written the ultimate manual for dads on raising righteous and rowdy daughters who will go out into the world well prepared- morally, physically, intellectually and with joyful hearts- to be indomitable and mighty lionesses in our cultural jungle. Through every raucous and no-holds-barred page, Doug, the incomparable Dad Drill Sergeant, puts mere men through the paces to join the ranks of the few, the proud, and the successful fathers of super daughters. The proof of Doug Giles’ gold-plated credentials are Hannah and Regis Giles- two of the most fantastic, great hearted and accomplished young ladies I have ever known. This is THE BOOK that I will be giving the father of my two precious five and three year old granddaughters. Tiger Mom meet Lion Dad! — Pat Caddell Fox News Contributor —
