STDs do NOT go away on their own!!

Jun 04, 2008 - 4 comments

STD bacterial infections do NOT go away on their own.  Any doctor who uses the theory that bacteria is fought off by the immune system to justify such a belief does not know what they are speaking about.

STDs  like Gonorrhea and Chlamydia is a serious bacteria not to be taken lightly.  We are not talking about a bacteria that you get from a paper cut now!!  We are talking about Bacterial STDs!!

Then why do many sources tell you to contact your previous sex partners up to 3 months? Wouldnt they have you contact all of them?

And why is the number of current infections of chlamydia estimated to be 2 million in America if around 3 million are infected each year and only about 600,000 are diagnosed? Wouldnt that leave a few million from the previous years still spreading the infection?

I always heard that you should contact ALL partners.  So do possible infected persons longer than 4 months rid the infection on their own?  Is that what you are trying to tell me?

If only 600,000 are diagnosed then how it is a known fact that 3 million are infected.  I'm not sure what you are trying to tell me.  Do the millions rid the infections on their own?

Trends in Reportable Sexually Transmitted Diseases in the United States, 2006
National Surveillance Data for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and Syphilis

Print Version (requires Adobe Reader)

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) remain a major public health challenge in the United States. While substantial progress has been made in preventing, diagnosing, and treating certain STDs in recent years, CDC estimates that approximately 19 million new infections occur each year, almost half of them among young people ages 15 to 24.1 In addition to the physical and psychological consequences of STDs, these diseases also exact a tremendous economic toll. Direct medical costs associated with STDs in the United States are estimated at up to $14.7 billion annually in 2006 dollars.2

This document summarizes 2006 national data on trends in three notifiable STDs — chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis — that are published in CDC’s report, Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance 2006. These data, which are useful for examining overall trends and trends among populations at risk, represent only a small proportion of the true national burden of STDs. Many cases of notifiable STDs go undiagnosed, and some highly prevalent viral infections, such as human papillomavirus and genital herpes, are not reported at all.

.....i still don't understand your point about doctors telling the diagnosed ones to inform all partners within 3 months?????

Does it mean that anyone 4 months and above if they had an STD would have had symptoms by then and would have been treated?
