Sexually Transmitted Infections: tell you before! Be better informed to protect yourself against sexually transmitted infections or make other aware, your friends, your children become teenagers...
1) A person who has a cold sore can transmit genital herpes to your partner:
Yes but only during the infectious period of cold sores.
No, definitely not.
Typically, the cold sore is caused by herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV 1) and genital herpes HSV 2. However, one can give an HSV1 and HSV2 vice versa. Thus a partner who has a cold sore can transmit genital herpes and vice versa.
2) The morning after pill is free:
Only for the minor.
Emergency contraception is available in pharmacies without prescription.
It is delivered free only to minors.
It pays for major and reimbursed by health insurance to 65% on prescription.
3) Condoms and HPV, the virus family involved in cancer of the cervix:
The condom does not protect any of papillomavirus.
It protects some but not enough.
Papillomaviruses are viruses transmitted through semen or genital secretions, but the mucous membranes. But condoms do not prevent contact between mucous membranes; it prevents very inadequate transmission of HPV.
The only way to protect against HPV and prevent cervical cancer of the uterus is the vaccination of young girls and the achievement of regular smears.
4) In case of equity risk, testing for AIDS should be made:
Three months later.
If you think you have been exposed to a risk of infection (unprotected relation, condom failure, injury with an object contaminated blood, sharing of injecting equipment ...), go to the emergency room of a hospital in an anonymous testing and free CDAG or see a doctor within 48 hours. A preventative treatment you may be prescribed.
Otherwise, within 15 to 90 days after exposure to risk, it is possible to detect if you've been or not contaminated with the AIDS virus after a test screening.
5) Certain sexually transmitted virus can cause:
Papillomaviruses are viruses that cause cancers of the cervix.
6) The morning after pill is effective:
In the only condition to be taken no later than the next day (within 24 hours no more).
Even beyond 24 hours after intercourse at risk, it is still worth the shot to take.
Note that the effectiveness of the morning-after pill (or emergency contraception) is not 100%. It is around 95% when taken within 24 hours and then decreases rapidly to reach for example 45% after 72 hours. Given the risk of unwanted pregnancy, it is still worth the shot to take!
7) After several months of using condoms with a single partner, we can stop the condom:
Only if one has confidence in his partner.
Not without having each a screening tests for AIDS.
We may be carrying the AIDS virus without knowing it. They may also underestimate their risk taking. This is not a question of trusting or not. There is no question of stopping the condom (which is the one and only way to guard against this very serious illness) without each partner has been tested for the AIDS virus. Then each partner shows its result to another.
8) The HPV can also cause diseases in humans such as:
Papillomaviruses are not only responsible for cancer of the cervix. In women as in men, they can cause the mucous membranes of the genital warts or cockscomb, a kind of small warts.
9) Is there a preventive treatment against AIDS?
Yes provided it is taken within 48 hours of taking risks.
No, there is no treatment that can prevent AIDS.
There are actually a preventative treatment to be taken within 48 hours of taking risks. It reduces the risk of infection after exposure to HIV. It consists of several active drugs against the HIV virus and must be taken for 4 weeks.
10) When is a screening test for AIDS, the result is known:
Within 3 to 7 days.
The test requires only a simple blood test, but the result is not immediate. It will be communicated within 3 to 7 days, during a second consultation.
