DID YOU KNOW

As many as 70% of women and 50% of men who have an STI (sexually Transmitted Infection) dont show any symptoms.

If you have unprotected sex (sex without a condom) you have much greater chance of getting a STI like Chlamydia, Syphillis, Gonorrhoea and HIV.

(courtesy UNAIDS)

There are an estimated 20,000 HIV positive people in Nigeria who don't know they've got HIV

In the last 10 years, the number of people infected with Chlamydia has increased by 206% in some high-risk groups, such as gay Men, the number of people infected with Syphillis has increased by 1,949%

                                                                                                                    

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN TO ME

You dont need to sleep around to get STI- anyone who has sex without a condom is at risk. HIV is the most dangerous STI simply because there is no cure. It weakens the immune system so that your body finds it harder to fight off other infections.

Green Coze dripping out of your penis or vagina can be a symptom of gonorrhoea, but many STIs dont carry any symptoms at all, though they can lead to infertility, heart disease, brain and nervous system damage.

Chlamydia is now the most common (yet easily curable) As many as one in ten young people under 25 may be infected with it. Often people don't know they have it as there aren't always symptoms, but an infection could leave you unable to have Children.                                                                                             

WHAT CAN I DO ABOUT IT

Get yourself checked out. If you have itches, sores or blisters around your genitals, you are more than likely to have an STI(If you've had unprotected Sex). No need to panic, but you should contact your local sexual health Clinic immediately.

SAFER SEX

To many people, it is difficult to abstain from sexual intercourse, Condom is the best option for people like that. Condom is an essential wear. It is advisable you use condom anytime you have sex as this is the best way to making sure you don't get STI. Although, research shows that it is only 99% safe when you where condom, i believe that 99% still goes a long way if we are to compare it to not being safe at all. Condom is not just a bloke thing either, Women buy 4 out of every 10 condoms sold. It comes in a wide range of sizes, flavours, colours and shapes and are available for both Men and Women. There are allergy-free and even vegan varieties, which use no animal products including milk. So there is no excuse for not using one.

WHEN TO START HAVING SEX

Sometimes it seems like everyone is having sex, and if you haven't done it yet, there can be pressure from all sides- from Friends, T.V. adverts, music and elsewhere. The pressure can seem even more intense if you are in a relationship, but if you don't feel ready yet, don't let anyone push you into having sex for the wrong reasons.                  

SOME MIGHT PUT PRESSURE ON YOU BY SAYING:-

*     They love you. If you feel the same, you'll want to do it too

*     You are both mature enough

*     Its a sign that you are committed

YOU MIGHT THINK:-

*     I will lose them if I don't

*     Everybody does it; maybe i should

*     I want to, but in my own time

*     I don't want to; but how do i say so?

But remember, its your body, your choice and your right to say 'NO'

HIV/AIDS

Research has it that at least two teenagers and young adults are infected everyday in most developing Countries, but many people still do not think they are personally at risk of HIV.

HOW IS HIV SPREAD?

People infected with HIV carry the virus in their body fluids, including blood, semen, vaginal secretions, and breastmilk. The virus can spread only if these HIV-infected fluids enter the bloodstream of another person. This can take place:

(a)     Through the linings of the vagina, rectum , mouth, or opening at the tip of the penis

(b)     Through injection with a syring;

(c) Through a break in the skin, such as cut or sore.

                                                                                                       

The most common ways that people become infected with HIV are:

*     Unprotected sexual intercourse (either vaginal oranal) with someone who has HIV.

*     Sharing needles or syringes(including those used for steroids) with someone who has HIV.

*     Mother-to-Child transmission during pregnancy, Childbirth, or breastfeeding

WOMEN AND HIV/AIDS

*     Worldwide, women constitute half of all people living with HIV/AIDS

*     Globally and in every region, more adult women (15 years or older) than ever before are now living with HIV.

*     Women are at least twice as likely to acquire HIV from Men during sexual intercourse than vice versa.

*     Only 20% of young women aged 15 to 24 correctly identify ways of preventing HIV transmission and reject major misconceptions about HIV transmission.

*     In low-and middle -income Countries, only one-third of pregnanat women are correctly offered services to prevent Mother-to-Child transmission of HIV.

*     In sub-Saharan Africa, Women constitute 59% of all people living with AIDS. Among young people  aged 15-24, the HIV prevalence rate for young women is almost three times higher than the rate for among young Men.

ARE YOU AFRAID YOU MAY ALREADY HAVE HIV?

Some people develop mild, temporary flu-like symptoms or persistent swollen glands immediately after becoming infected with HIV. But symptoms are not a good indicator of HIV infection, because many people don't experience any symptoms fo many years. Even if you look and feel healthy, you could still be infected.

You may be at risk if you have had unprotected sex or if the condom broke during sex, if you have multiple  partners or have discovered your partner was not monogamous; if you have shared needles; if you recently tested positive for another sexually transmitted infection, or if you were sexually assaulted.

If you think there is a chance you may have been exposed to HIV, you should get tested as soon as possible.

HOW CAN YOU TELL IF SOMEONE HAS HIV/AIDS?

You can't tell if someone has HIV/AIDS simply by looking . An infected person can appear completely healthy. If you are sexually active, the only way to be sure you don't have HIV is to go for the test.

HIV/AIDS doesn't discriminate. That means that anyone who engages in risky behaviour can become infected. But the epidemic has taken an especially heavy toll on some group of young people. Especially Youth, young women and Young Men. African youth account for almost two third of all newly HIV infections among young people aged 13-24

Remember, its not who you are but what you do that determines whether you can become infected with HIV.

WHEN IS SAFER SEX IMPORTANT?

The rules are simple, whenever you have sexual intercourse (or oral sex), practice safer sex by using a condom or dental dam (a square of latex recommended for use during sex) When used properly and consistently. condoms are close to 99 percent effective in preventing transmission of HIV
