Common sexually transmitted infections and their treatment backposted on Wed, 06 Jun at 11:14
In many countries sexually transmitted infections (STI's) and their complications are very common and rank in the top five disease categories for which adults seek health care!!!! Unfortunately STI's are also very common amongst adolescents and young adults.
Did you know that STI's can lead to serious complications and serious delayed consequences such as infertility, cervical cancer, pregnancy complications, birth defects and even death?
STI's are the main preventable cause of infertility, particularly in women.
Sadly many Ghanaians are uncomfortable discussing STI's.
Since many STI's show no initial signs and symptoms, they remain untreated and continue to cause serious health challenges, but the question is: IS THERE REALLY SUCH A THING AS SAFE SEX????
