What’s your Sex IQ---for STD’s?

 

Since it’s back to school for many students what better time to take a test. Below are some questions to test your knowledge of the most common STD’s.

Can STD’s be cured for good?

Some can. But many can’t. What you’re left with is a disease that will require lifelong treatments. Besides affecting your physical health, STD’s can also mess up your emotional health. Want more bad news? Some STD’s are life threatening if not treated.

If you get an STD will you know it?

Sometimes. Many STD’s have no symptoms at first. By the time you experience the symptoms the disease can be in an advanced stage. Many STD’s can be easily transmitted to other partners when there are no symptoms present. Which means you can’t look at someone and tell if they have an STD.

Condoms protect against STD’s, right?

Wrong. A condom will provide some protection against gonorrhea, Chlamydia, HIV, and trichomoniasis, but they don’t offer the protection you need against the awful STD’s like herpes and HPV. You can get those through genital touching and areas a condom doesn't cover.

Once I have been treated for an STD I can’t catch it again, right?

Wrong again. STD’s are caused by bacteria and viruses—you can get them again and will need to be treated again. Unless you already have herpes or HIV which is lifelong.

What’s the best way to avoid an STD?

Easy answer: do not have sex (vaginal, oral or anal) or intimate sexual touching until you’re married—and then both partners remain faithful. It’s the right answer for a lifetime free of STD's. It’s also the best way to have a terrific relationship with someone you plan on spending the rest of your life with.
