National Sex Disease Month: April in America

It's well known that "sex sells" in advertising and mass media, but the consequence of the sexual revolution is a difficult sell -- ergo, STD Awareness Month. Latching onto this in-all-appearances, well-intentioned campaign are the likes of Planned Parenthood and others in the sex and abortion industries.  The federal government reports that sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) cost Americans $16 billion annually -- mostly involving the "young invincibles."

. . . and the Obama administration wants Americans to celebrate deviant sexual behavior for the month of June, and then there's Homosexual Indoctrination Month every October in schools.

The Department of Public Health wants to encourage the community to “get tested.” Chlamydia and gonorrhea can cause infertility in women, and these and other STDs can increase HIV transmission in both men and women.

“STDs pose a serious public health threat to county residents, particularly adolescents and young adults,” said Meaghan Ellis, Community Health Services and Health Center director for the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health. “Many STDs often have no signs or symptoms, but can be effectively treated once diagnosed.”

The goal of the campaign is to encourage people to get tested, start treatment right away if they test positive for an STD and learn how to be STD free.

From "Wood Co. Aims to Reduce Rates of STDs among Young People, Free Testing Offered" posted at WSAW-TV7 (Wausau, WI) 4/8/14

The Wood County Health Department says half of sexually active young people will get a sexually transmitted disease (STD) by age 25. Rates of Chlamydia and Gonorrhea have risen dramatically in recent years. Additionally, more cases of Hepatitis C are being seen.

The Healthy People Wood County Healthy Growth and Development Team is working through many different venues to reduce rising STD rates in Wood county.

The first endeavor will be to raise awareness about STD's, offer free testing for HIV and Hepatitis C and spread the word about Get Yourself Tested (GYT) at local colleges.

From "Planned Parenthood offers free STD testing" posted at WTHR-TV13 (Indianapolis, IN) 4/7/14

Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky (PPINK) announced today that it will mark the sixth annual GYT: Get Yourself Tested campaign in April-STD Awareness Month-by offering free STD and HIV tests at 18 of its Indiana health centers.

GYT is a national campaign to promote sexual health and address the disproportionately high rates of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) - including HIV, chlamydia, and gonorrhea - among young people under 25.

Half of the estimated 20 million sexually transmitted diseases contracted each year occur among the under-25 age group, although they only represent one-quarter of the sexually active population. In fact, one in two sexually active young people in the U.S. will contract an STD by the time they're 25 - and most won't know it.

From "Most STDs easily treated if detected early - April is STD Awareness Month" by Sean Rowley, Staff Writer, Tahlequah (OK) Daily Press 4/7/14

Just about any sexual behavior carries a risk of infection, but STDs fit into a particular category of being passed only through sexual contact.

Women ages 15-25 are at the highest risk for chlamydia, which is easily treated with antibiotics if caught in time. Gonorrhea and syphilis also respond well to treatment with early detection. HIV, the virus causing AIDS, has no cure, but can be managed with medication.

Infections of human papillomavirus (HPV), a common disease that can cause cervical cancer in women, can be prevented through immunization. The vaccine has been the subject of controversy, because some believe it encourages girls to become sexually active.

The best defense against STDs is abstinence, but that might be an unreasonable expectation among adults. The most effective countermeasures for the sexually active are a barrier, such as a male or female condom, and being tested twice a year or if symptoms arise.

From "1.4 Million Americans Got Chlamydia in 2012, Topping CDC’s All-Time List" by Barbara Hollingsworth, 4/8/14

Approximately 110 million Americans – more than a third of the entire U.S. population - were infected with a sexually transmitted disease (STD) as of 2008, the latest date for which figures are available, the CDC spokeswoman confirmed. That includes more than a million Americans living with HIV.

CDC estimates that nearly 20 million new STD cases are contracted annually . . .

Women aged 20 to 24 have the highest chlamydia infection rate (3,695.5 cases per 100,000), more than twice the rate as men of the same age (1,350.4 cases per 100,000), according to the report, which added that “during 2008-2012, the chlamydia rate in men jumped 25%, compared with an 11% increase in women during this period.”

In 2012, the average chlamydia infection rate in the U.S. was 456.7 per 1,000 population. Mississippi had the highest rate (774.0 per 1,000) while New Hampshire had the lowest (233.0 per 1,000).

CDC also reported 334,826 new cases of gonorrhea (up 4.1% since 2011) and 15,667 new cases of primary and secondary syphilis (up 11.1% percent since 2011, primarily among gay and bisexual men, who account for 75% of all new cases), noting that “antimicrobial resistance remains an important consideration in the treatment of gonorrhea.”
