HPV Transmission HPV is transmitted sexually. A vaccine exist to prevent the ‘4 undesirable genotypes of HPV.’ Gardasil $165 per shot at RiverStone. If you are between 13 and 18 you can get the shot for $20.
Genital Herpes Transmission Skin to skin Does NOT require sexual intercourse to spread. Herpes simplex 1 & 2 are interchangeable
How is syphilis transmitted? Syphilis is transmitted via touching a syphilis sore. Transmission occurs during vaginal, anal and oral sex. Syphilis cannot be spread through casual contact with a toilet seat, door knob, swimming pool, shared clothing and eating utensils.
Signs and Symptoms Primary – single sore or chancre, usually in about 21 days. The sore lasts about 3-6 weeks.
Secondary and Tertiary Syphilis Skin rash and mucous membrane The disease can remain latent for 10-20 years and can eventually damage internal organs, including the brain, nerves, eyes, heart, blood vessels, liver, bones and joints.
Crabs Pubic lice are parasitic insects arms, legs, armpits, eyebrows, and eyelashes. More than 3 million cases occurring in the United States every year.
Modes of Transmission: If your sexual partner is infested with pubic crabs, you have a 95% chance of becoming infected yourself. Crabs can only live for 48 hours without human blood.
Symptoms: Itching and irritation Bluish spots where the crabs have been feeding Dark spots (crab feces) indicate a definite infestation Nits (eggs) close to the bottom of the pubic hair shaft
Treatment: Genital crabs can be treated with prescription lotions or shampoos as well as over-the-counter remedies.
STDS can affect these areas: –Conjunctiva (eye) –Mouth –Throat We have seen all three of these in Billings in the past month.
What we do… We talk to people infected with the aforementioned STDs to get their sexual contacts’ information. Re-infection is a big concern because it is so common. We are legally obligated to notify partners ANONYMOUSLY. No names or time frames are used in this process.
